Beauty / IN THE BAG

On the road with Camilla Freeman-Topper

When you’re a leading Australian designer constant travel comes with the territory. For Camilla Freeman-Topper, being prepared is key. From the Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ladies Lunch, Freeman-Topper lets us in her on travel and beauty routine.

I can’t travel without … ​
My headphones for music, my portable phone charger, paw paw cream and a simple humidifier mask to keep out the bacteria on the aeroplane.

My top five things to take with me anywhere are …
My kids, husband, my go to serum’s and especially my mist spray.

My travel beauty routine consists of …
I like to double cleanse before a flight and I will always make an appointment for an anti-inflammatory light with Melanie Grant to get my collagen working while I’m in the air. I consistently reapply the Sisley Black Rose Cream mask and make sure to keep ​my fluids up as much as possible, drinking upwards of four to five litres when flying long haul.

The best song to sing in the car is …
Max Richter’s Four Seasons, especially as we come into autumn, the perfect music for this time of year.

My favourite road-trips are to …
The ride home to see my family after a long day at work. Plus travelling to the country with the family when I am able to escape the city from the office, we do that as much as we can throughout the year.​

My style icon is …
My beautiful and ​chic grandmother has always and will forever be my style icon and inspiration.

My biggest indulgence is …
A nice invigorating walk from home to Bondi with my husband after work when the kids are down, going for a foot massage and then onto dinner for a quick date night, just the two of us – heaven.

The best advice I’ve received is …
When someone says no, find another way to make it happen.
