Q.1. What are your top make up products?
The Madison Makeup Dare To Blend palette- the colours are so wearable, great for a day or night-time look & my clients go crazy for it! Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand for a healthy glow even on days with no foundation. And Urban Decay Perversion mascara- eyelashes are lengthened, darkened & volumised even with one coat, it’s a miracle mascara!
Q.2. What are some of your favourite skincare products?
Shiseido Ibuki Beauty Sleeping Mask is like giving thirsty, dehydrated skin a drink. I use it twice a week before bed. Also Dr. Paw Paw original balm ( the yellow tube) is a product I can’t live without- I use it first thing in the morning & last thing at night as my lips are prone to dryness.
Q.3. What is your main philosophy towards your beauty regime?
To have fun with makeup & never use the exact same products two days in a row. It’s good to switch it up & try new products regularly.
Q.4. What are some of the best tricks of the beauty trade that you’ve picked up over the years?
If you’re under pressure for time, using tape on your eyes is a life saver. The blend just looks flawless everytime!
Q.5. Who is your own beauty style crush – someone that you think always gets their hair and make up looks right?
Millie Mackintosh is a goddess. So simple & chic, she seems to effortlessly nail any look with hair, fashion & beauty.
Q.6. Have you had to alter your beauty style through different decades?
Of course, everyone does. When I started out in makeup, no one filled in eyebrows, highlight & contour didn’t really exist & false lashes were so uncommonly used that we didn’t even learn how to apply them in my college course. Thankfully we’ve come a long way & Instagram is such a great way of keeping up to date on new product releases from your favourite brands if you feel you’re starting to outgrow your makeup routine.
Q.7. What is the best beauty advise you’d like to pass on?
Just because a certain beauty look is on trend doesn’t mean you have to wear it. Wear the makeup that makes you feel like a total knockout & you’re golden because your confidence will shine through & make you look even more incredible than any makeup can.
Q.8 What is your top beauty regime DON’T?
Whether it’s cheap makeup wipes or the most expensive cleanser on the market, DON’T fool yourself into thinking your skin is actually makeup free until you soak a facecloth in warm water & give your face a once over. You’ll be horrified at the amount of leftover makeup when you thought you had scrubbed every last morsel off!
