In my beauty bag: Miriama Smith

Film and television actress, Miriama Smith, 37, most recently starred in Mt Zion, and is about to hit the boards during the New Zealand Festival in the Auckland Theatre Company's 'Paniora', a production about Maori Spaniards living on the East Coast. 
Mother of one-year-old son Rauaroha, Miriama was born in Rotorua, grew up in Porirua and did a sports degree at Waikato University.
She currently lives in Auckland, where we caught her after a trip to the Avondale market.
"I feel most beautiful when I am eating well, sleeping well and thinking positively.
I absolutely love cosmetics and beauty services.  I've learned to love them since being in Auckland and on television, and being introduced to all these beauty products and how you can feel so lovely.
In the morning I feed my son porridge and I go to yoga at the Yoga Sanctuary if I can - but at the moment I am rehearsing five days a week.  To get ready for yoga I have a cup of herb tea or lemon water, tie my hair back, and go.  I don't care what I look like because I come out feeling amazing.
After yoga and a shower I use Environ on my face - I believe in consistently using the same range together. 
I use their AVST cream cleanser; tone with their Evenescence clarifying lotion which helps with the occasional little bit of hormonal pigmentation I get, and then the AVST 5 moisturising cream, plus a magical little Environ eye gel that I use as well. 
I slap on their RAD sunblock and that's pretty much me if I am going straight into rehearsals.
If I'm going out and I want to feel a little bit presentable I use the Jane Iredale range - I'm all about minerals. 
I choose them for my skin's health - I like that I'm not wearing too much heavy stuff, as opposed to when I'm made up and under lights all day for work. 
I use the Warm Bronze Dream Tint - basically a tinted moisturiser - a little but of lip gloss - my favourite Jane Iredale one is called Bellini - with a nude Jane Iredale liner and then their Longest Lash mascara - it comes with a really good lash primer as well.
I groom my own eyebrows.
I wash my hair a couple of times a week - it takes all day to dry.  I'm currently using Tresemme - the new Keratin range that they have, I have found it really great. 

I haven't had my hair cut for a long time.  If I'm bored I will sit with a pair of scissors and cut my split ends myself.  I might put a rinse through once in a while to help with silver tones that pop in every now and then.  And I use a little Monoi oil - Biolage Matrix Exquisite Oil.
