A luxe night cream and an $18 concealer: Everything Jules Sebastian puts on her face.

What I Put On My Face is Mamamia’s celebrity beauty series that takes you inside the beauty cabinets of some of Australia’s most influential women. From what skincare products they use to their go-to makeup tips, it’s a pervy look at exactly what they put on their face. And body. And hair. You get the idea. 

This week, we speak to stylist, presenter and mum-of-two, Jules Sebastian. She's a woman of many talents, and one that continues to make waves in the Australian media with her natural approach to beauty and style. With her large Instagram following (a cool 230k followers, if you don't mind) it's no wonder you're seeing her face pop up everywhere.

Here, the 41-year-old reveals some of her go-to skincare and makeup products, as well as the secret behind her enviable hair.

Jules Sebastian is a lot of different things. *Takes a deep breath*. She's a television presenter, sought-after stylist, professional makeup artist, blogger, mum-of-two and wife to Aussie muso, Guy Sebastian. Among all of these things, she's also a beauty ambassador for brands such as MCoBeauty, Biolage and Olay. 

So casual.

She's certainly a busy woman. But! We managed to pin her down for two secs (hooray!) to chat to her about all things beauty-related, including exactly how she nails those messy waves.

Jules Sebastian's skincare routine.

When it comes to skincare, Jules likes to keep things nice and simple (see: her 54729 career paths above), opting for a cleanser, serum and moisturiser (one for day and one for night). 

"I am all about taking care of my skin, and what I have been focusing on over the last 12 months is trying to create an even skin tone, because this ultimately creates a flawless base for my makeup routine," said Jules.

"I am loving the Olay Regenerist Luminous Micro-Sculpting Face Serum, and the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, which I use in the morning. I also use the Rationale #6 The Night Crème at night."

Jules Sebastian's hair routine.

If there's anyone who knows how to nail a textured lob, it's Jules. She always has these mysteriously perfect waves that look so chic and effortless. We want.

But you know how it usually goes - anything described as 'effortless' or 'messy' usually takes an absurd amount of effort to perform yourself. However, according to Jules, nabbing her trademark hairstyle is actually pretty simple. 

For a regular everyday situation, Jules said she uses two key products to give her hair a bit of grit and texture, before going in with a curling wand. 

"I have a bit of a signature 'Jules look' - it’s an effortless, undone messy wave," Jules said. "My favourite products to use are from Biolage. I use the Biolage All-In-One Coconut Infusion Spray and Biolage VolumeBloom Full-Lift Volumiser to help create this look. I also use a Halo Curling Wand for styling."

Actually sounds pretty doable, hey? We're all for a fast and simple routine! Especially if we come out the other end with hair like Jules.

Jules Sebastian's makeup routine.

Similar to her skincare routine, Jules likes to keep it simple. She's not one to fluff around with complicated makeup looks and said her main focus is to create a nice, natural dewy base. And some killer lashes, of course.

"I like to focus on a fresh glowing look. I don’t do a lot of eye makeup, other than mascara during the day. I never leave the house without mascara!" 

If you're a mum, you'll know that you need some super speedy fixes on hand when it comes to your makeup routine. So, it pays to have a bunch of hardworking products that'll last the distance.

Here are some of Jules' fave picks from MCoBeauty:

"I am all about quick, long-lasting makeup. I am loving the MCoBeauty Ultra Stay Flawless Foundation and the Instant Erase Concealer. The ModelCo LashXtend Tubing Mascara is something I can’t live without!"
