beauty secrets: Courtney & Kimberley share their ‘glow-how’

Posted on 3 May 2016

SISTERS, and our CO-FOUNDERS/OWNERS, COURTNEY & KIMBERLEY TREACY SHARE HOW THEY ‘GET GLOWING’…
{while juggling a family and a new thriving business}

The Lip Lab’s first store opened in Sydney last November after a year of planning by sisters and owners Courtney and Kimberley Treacy. It’s the first of it’s kind in Australia where you can help you choose, mix and create your perfect lipstick {or gloss} – and the concept came about when the sisters {who are very close} went on holidays together. “We were actually on a stopover in Dallas and we saw a shop on a little side street where we could make our own lipsticks; that gave us a starting point when we came back to Australia. We contacted the company in Dallas and they put us on to their cosmetic chemist and we went from there.” The girls have more The Lip Labs planned for around the country, so stay tuned – and until then, and if you can’t make it to the Paddington store, you can buy our The Lip Lab lipsticks online.

COURTNEY TREACY – CO-FOUNDER & OWNER OF THE LIP LAB AND MUM OF TWO
What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given or have discovered? The best best beauty advice I have discovered is to drink more water. The better I feel on the inside the more healthier I feel and look on the outside.

What’s your biggest beauty disaster? When I’m impatient and can’t get an appointment to get my brows done, I do them myself, which I should leave up to the professionals.

What are your can’t live-without beauty products?
A daily creme based lipstick – The Lip Lab
Eye brow kit, Mascara, Liquid Foundation & Splendour blush – all from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics
Face moisturiser Revcovery Cream from O cosmetics

What’s your best time-saving beauty tip?
I love to use sticky tape when drawing my eye liner on. It saves time and creates the perfect wings!

KIMBERLEY TREACY – CO-FOUNDER & OWNER OF THE LIP LAB AND MUM TO TWO

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given or have discovered? To use good skincare (thanks mum!)! I’m constantly getting compliments on how clear my skin is and it’s because I’ve always used the best skincare.

What’s your biggest beauty disaster? Probably a bit of red lippy on the teeth while out at a dinner. Or a botched spray tan!

What are your can’t live-without beauty products?
My urban decay naked 2 pallete
I’m obsessed with MAC Strobe Creme right now, it looks amazing under your foundation. And I can’t forget my growing collection of  The Lip Lab lipsticks.

What’s your best time-saving beauty tip? Have kids! Haha. Trying to meet a deadline while getting ready with children is impossible. You learn very quickly how to get your make up done fast!
