Two Lucky STELLAR Readers Chat About Starring In Their Very Own Magazine Shoot

STELLAR PROMOTION: Best friends Claire and Leona got snap happy at our Dublin studio!

Winners of our Beauty at Every Age competition, best friends Claire and Leona became the stars of the show this month as they joined team STELLAR for a very exciting shoot.

Taking centre stage in our gorge new autumn issue (out now), the girls got their hair and makeup done in studio before posing up a storm in front of the camera.

Using one of our fave brands, both Claire and Leona wore products from Sculpted by Aimee.

Included in the product list for their makeup look was Second Skin; a mineral formula foundation with buildable coverage and SPF 50 for giving you that radiant, photo finish look. This product was also voted by you as one of your go-to products in the past year, winning a STELLAR Beauty Hero Award! 

“I learned a few new tips and tricks from the make up artists,” revealed Claire while on the shoot. “They were so lovely and talked me through the different products that were used on the day.”

Adding that she “really enjoyed” getting her makeup done, Leona continued that the Sculpted by Aimee lipstick and liner were also winners in her eyes. Leona wore the Coffee Combo Lip Duo.
