Singer/Songwriter Anna Coddington is the face of Trilogy’s latest campaign.
When music and beauty come together you get a dynamic match. That certainly seems to be true of Trilogy’s new partnership with New Zealand singer/songwriter Anna Coddington. She’s the current face of Trilogy’s ‘Discover Nature’s Power’ campaign and is a natural fit for the brand. We caught up with Anna recently to ask her what beauty means for her as well as what Trilogy products she’d be lost without.
What does beauty mean for you?
I think of beauty in two ways, the traditional sense of being good-looking, which is great but kind of fleeting and arbitrary, and also in the sense of being a beautiful person which is much more important and interesting to me. Traits like compassion, kindness, strength, individuality and lots of other things make a person beautiful.
Which of Trilogy’s products would you recommend to everyone? Which is a staple product to you from their range?
Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream SPF15, Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm, Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream.
Certified Organic Rosehip Oil would have to be my staple.. an absolute treat for my face at the end of each day. I love that it helps even out skin colour.
Anna Coddington’s recommended Trilogy products.
What is your go-to beauty look when you’re performing?
I keep my look pretty simple. I like a little eye-liner, possibly a small wing, and a small amount of eyeshadow and mascara. I have strong facial features so I find too much makeup looks weird on me.
What would we find in your makeup bag?
Very little as I tend to go light on make-up and don’t usually wear it during the day. Essentially my hairbrush, Antipodes Mineral Foundation, mascara and Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm to get it all off at the end of the day.
If you could take one beauty product with you to a desert island, what would it be?
Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream SPF15. I wish I had been more careful about sun protection growing up at the beach in Raglan. But it’s one of those things you don’t really hear when you’re young, especially if you are darker skinned and don’t necessarily get sunburnt. But now I know – 10 years down the track. I always wear sunblock in summer now.
Do you have a beauty icon?
My Mum. She is truly beautiful, both physically and as a person. She sees the good in everyone and has a lot of love to give and that gives her a certain radiance. Everyone loves her when they meet her. She also tried to get me to start moisturising from a young age (I didn’t listen until much later).
