What is your skin care regime, and which products you use and why?
I do like to follow a system.
Murad Cleansing Shave which is both nourishing and an exfoliator.
Followed with Murad Razor Burn Rescue to calm down any redness and soothe my skin, also it stops the occasional ingrown hair.
I use Murad Skin Defense SPF15 as I can burn and its always good to have a bit of sunscreen on everyday. I’m religious about applying this....and my bible is Vogue....
I love facials. Caci's IP5 facial is my favourite. It gets rid of any dullness and my skin positively glows after. I try to do this every 8 weeks depending on my schedule.
Do you take any health supplements to help with skin/hair/nails?
Indeed. I eat a lot of natural protein- like oily fish. Raw vegetables & fruit.
I also drink a cap of Lifestream biogenic aloe vera juice before I sleep & first thing in the morning. Its a soothing digestive tonic that really handles all the battles going on internally that can then be shown on the surface of my skin.... I have really good skin....but its my job to not fall apart at the seams.
What are your favourite makeup products and why?
I have a regime of MAC products that are quick and easy that get me photo-ready in literally 2 minutes:
Studio Finish concealer, Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15, Pro Longwear concealer, Blot Powder in Dark, Mineralise Skin Finish...eye liner...I have light hazel green eyes which pop when eye-lined.
Do you have any makeup tips/tricks you swear by?
I have just discovered in a gift bag Smashbox Photo Matte Anti-Shine. It instantly absorbs any excess oil. Shiny disco ball no more! I’m oily....I’m so oily in fact I could lube a car on occasion.
What are your favourite hair products and why?
I was just given Schwarzkopf Professional (3D)Mension Grooming Fluid and I'm in love. You just put through wet hair and leave. My kind of product.
If I want a bit of guts to my hairstyle I use Osis Rough Rubber. Adds texture like its name suggests and roughs it up.
Label.M Dry Shampoo for brunettes. Its my lifesaver if I haven't time to wash my hair. It gives great volume too. My hair is thick but it still needs to look damn amazing.
What are your favourite fragrances and why?
JO MALONE!!!! I wear Dark Amber @ Ginger Lily Cologne Intense and I always always get complimented on how I bloom...in winter I like Pomegranate Noir Cologne...more spice.
I think its important to be your own inspiration...though there are women I really look up to in terms of style and presence like Linda Evangelista and the eternally chic Coco Chanel...Im also inspired by the beauty of the street.
I love twisting my neck around to look at some super gorgeous woman or dashingly handsome silver daddy.
Describe your overall look in 3 words
TOO MUCH FUN
Any last words of wisdom?
No matter how you look, or what labels you wear, or how many products you smother your body with, it’s always simple joy & happiness that will always be the most stimulating attractive attribute any person can wear....seek that out and everything else falls into place....with mojitos.
