-What is your skin care regime, and which products you use and why?
I’m pretty basic when I come to my skin. I use a cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser. I love Murad skincare (can be found at Caci Clinic) Not only are their products amazing on sensitive skin but you actually see the results.
-Do you take any health supplements to help with skin/hair/nails?
No not really, just a good healthy diet and lots of water!
-What are your favourite makeup products and why?
So hard to narrow it down to five, but I’m definitely a big fan of a good eyebrow pencil , i like to use macs ‘Lingering’ brow pencil, i think that nice brows completely frame the face and make you look polished. I also love MAC’s primer, your makeup look will not only last longer but it completely buffs out any blemishes and flaws. My Mac brush set, without these bad boys I wouldn't be able to create any of my looks, I highly recommend investing in a good brush set as they last you years and years when looked after well enough. A good mascara is always hard to find and after much trial and error I find that you can never go wrong with Dior show, it gives you that amazing thick, long look with a great curl. Last but not least I love Clarins instant light natural lip perfecter lip gloss in rose shimmer; it’s the perfect pink colour, it’s great for everyday wear as it’s not too sticky and will keep your lips well hydrated.
-Do you have any makeup tips/tricks you swear by?
Always moisturize before applying makeup, it gives you an amazing dewy finish and keeps your skin nice and hydrated. Even if you don’t love the big brow trend a little bit of eyebrow pencilling really can change your makeup look from dull to perfectly manicured. Last but not least, apply foundation with a brush, you will save on product and the final result is makeup artist perfection!
-What are your favourite hair products and why?
For me I cannot live without purple shampoo. I love L’Oreal’s s silver purple shampoo its great to use once or twice a week to keep my blonde hair looking fresh and it takes out the brassy yellow tones. Dry shampoo is another great product especially for the busy people in the world! Perfect way to freshen up your hair in between washes. I love Kerastase Chroma-riche hair treatment. It is so important to keep your hair in good condition.
-What are your favourite fragrances and why?
I absolutely love having a huge selection to choose from.. You can often tell what kind of mood I’m in according to the fragrance i am wearing. - My classic favourite is coco mademoiselle eau de parfum, its feminine and chic which i love. - Miss Dior Cherie is another favourite and i love wearing it during the day for something lighter and fresh. - Dolce & Gabanna is amazing for the fresh beachy smell after having a shower.
-What/who are your beauty inspirations/icons?
Cara Delvinge - I absolutely love her big brows. Miranda Kerr - i love her feminine look and she always looks flawless and sophisticated.
-Describe your makeup look in 3 words:
Fresh, elegant, appropriate
-Any last words of wisdom?
Less is more.
