Lara Bingle is a bona fide blonde bombshell. A natural beauty with a laid-back girl-next-door quality, she caught our attention earlier this year when she chopped off her surfer-girl tresses into this year’s trending hairstyle, the lob. The Australian swimsuit model is best known for her curves and year-round golden glow, so it seems only fitting that she has launched her own tanning line, The Base. Her debut beauty line is a range of eight bronzing products, which help you achieve a figure flattering, all over golden glow. As rumors circulate about whether or not she is expecting her first child with partner Sam Worthington, we talk to the model about her beauty regimen and exciting new range.
What is your everyday beauty routine?
I’m all about skincare, not makeup, whenever possible. When I’m traveling, I like to focus on hydration and for day-to-day, I just like to keep it very simple.
I use a French skincare line called Biologique Recherche. In particular, I use the Lait VIP O2 (milky cleanser), Lotion P50 (exfoliating toner), Sérum Amniotique E., Fluide VIP 02, and Crème Dermopurifiante—in that order, both day and night.

Everything I use is intended to achieve a healthy glow. I use the YSL Touché Éclat underneath my eyes and The Base by Lara Bingle LB cream for all-over coverage and moisture and as sunscreen. I follow with the Chanel Sublimage La Crème on my cheeks and The Base by Lara Bingle Skin Illuminators to highlight the natural curves of my face. I finish with the Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara.
The Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser is my favorite body wash and I use Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Moisturizer as my moisturizer.
Introducing the tanning range: The Base
What makes The Base different from other tanning brands on the market?
The Base was developed to enhance your natural glow from head to toe. The idea was to create products that would complement and enhance your tan and were instant, affordable, and easy to use.
All of the products are made in Australia and only tested on me. I’m also very passionate about starting The Base as an online store. I believe this allows me to connect personally with my customers/community, which is the most important thing for me with regards to building the brand.
What is the star product of the collection?
My secret little weapon is The Base by Lara Bingle’s Shimmer Illuminator. This is a multipurpose product designed to contour and highlight the natural curves of your face and body. You can also mix it with a body moisturizer for a head-to-toe glow.
