HAUTE MAMA: Eimear Varian Barry

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

Eimear was a well-known stylist long before she got pregnant, joined Instagram and gathered an army of followers – 46.6k at last count. Another baby is now on the way to join daughter, Saoirse. So, what does she use on her hair and skin during pregnancy? Read on for the scoop and then follow her beautiful Insta account at @eimearvarianbarry

“I use these whether I’m pregnant or not, but I’d say I use them differently – now I’m pregnant again I’m using more of the conditioner than usual. But just a little on the ends, as it is powerful stuff. It’s got the kind of smell you can close your eyes and really enjoy – I find myself going into a slow motion TV hair ad.”

“I put this on straight out of the shower and it sinks in so quickly. I’m always on the lookout for brands like this on Instagram but do not purchase lightly! The Vitamin C content is especially helpful as skin is sucked dry of nutrients during pregnancy – the more, the better. I also love that it’s not tested on animals and that it’s fragrance free – anything without a fragrance is automatically good for skin, it’s a no brainer to me.”

“I can’t live without this. You’re talking to a girl who has been taking off her makeup with Imperial Leather for around 16 years now. Don’t kill me! The story is, I got a sample of Eve Lom at a press day a few months ago. I tried it and obviously it was a gamechanger, but too expensive for me. I did a lot of research and found this one. I definitely need to apply moisturiser afterwards, whereas with Eve Lom I didn’t – my skin wasn’t dry or anything, it just needed a little top up after cleansing. But as a cleanser it works just as well as an expensive balm for a fraction of the price. I wouldn’t use anything other than a cleansing balm again because of how quick it is to apply and wipe off. I am the mother of a toddler – everything needs to be as convenient as possible!”
