Beauty & business with Saskia Teje

Beauty & business with Saskia Teje

Achieving the work/life/beauty balance.

Saskia Teje. If you're on Insta, chances are you've seen her. It's pretty clear that Saskia's got it all covered; accomplished model, inspiring business women and –let's face it– absolutely beautiful. Base Camp Beauty stole a few minutes out of her busy day to get her perspective on beauty, business and what empowers her as a young entrepreneur.

What are some of your favourite self-care practices?

I love going for a sunrise walk on the beach. I find that it puts me in a really great state of mind for the rest of my day.

How do you unwind after a long day on set?

I find the best way to unwind is to have a cold shower and wash my hair –it makes me feel like I have washed off a long day and I feel refreshed!

What's your favourite way to use your Base Camp Gua Sha tool?

I love using mine before I go to bed, so it works all of my serums into my skin. It's such a nice little way to finish off my day.

How do you balance starting up, running, and designing for your new label Amelia Teje, and your modelling career?

I find the best way to balance it all is to prioritise my time, to make sure I give both of my passions the equal amount of love. I owe it to my beautiful customers, and to myself to make sure they receive the best customer experience.

What's something you're looking forward to in 2021?

I am really looking forward to being passionate about something again. I feel like last year, like a lot of people, I lost my drive and felt a little lost. This year is a fresh start!

What are you listening to at the moment?

I have found I've been listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers again! They're so cool.

What does a day off look like for you?

A day off for me recently has been my BF, my dog Lilo and I at the beach, soaking up what is left of Aussie summer!

What are 3 beauty products you can't live without?

I love my Mecca BB cream, it's so easy to apply, has SPF, and perfect amount of coverage. I have quite wild brows, so brow gel is a must! And also a brown lip liner! ❤︎
