Beauty Secrets: Ines Ligron

Beauty Secrets: Ines Ligron


Formerly based in Japan, the Frenchwoman was the national director of the Miss Universe Japan Organisation for 13 years. During her time there, she helped the organisation produce three top five winners, including 2007 Miss Universe winner Riyo Mori.

Ms Ligron is also well-known in Japan, often appearing on talk shows to dispense tips on beauty, style and relationships.

Prior to that, she represented top models such as Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Alec Wek and Milla Jovovich when she was the Asia-Pacific director of American modelling agency IMG Models.

She has been based in Singapore for the last three years. In February, the mother of three started Dream Factory, a company that provides head-to-toe makeovers.

What is the one product you would not step out of the house without?

Mascara and eyeliner because I have blonde lashes. Even after I wash my face and shower in the evening, I put on mascara and eyeliner and go to bed - just so my husband will not see my bare face.

This habit is probably bad for my skin, but it is good because I get to keep my husband. I do this every night and I prevent my make-up from smearing all over the sheets by not burying my face in the pillow.

My current favourites are the Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara. Maybelline mascaras are not expensive and are of good quality. I also like the Maybelline Hypersharp Liner.

What is the one grooming service you cannot do without?

I need an essential oil massage at least once a week because I travel often, sometimes, up to four times a month. I go to Spa Esprit at Paragon and I get my facials done there too.

To detox, I drink organic juices for an entire week, once every month. I make my own juices and I drink a glass every hour.
