What is your signature scent?
I always used to experiment and play around with different fragrances until I came across Tom Fords, Velvet Orchard-it has a luxurious and sensual scent that I can’t resist.
Which three beauty products couldn’t you live without?
The most important beauty products that you will never find me without are my tinted moisturizer with 50spf, lamer lip balm and my vitamin C skin serum.
Talk us through your morning and evening skincare routines. How are they different?
My morning routine consists of face wash, toner and a moisturizing spf. In the evening I usually like to use a hydrating sleeping mask. At the moment I’m loving the skin care products by @beautybydrkay -check out her Instagram.
How does your skin type affect the sort of makeup you wear?
Luckily I have always had very clear skin and I do take extra care of it on a daily basis and when it comes to Make up, I am very particular about using products that are actually good for my skin.
Talk us through your everyday makeup routine
My every day make up routine is a good spf moisturizer and primer that will help with fine lines and pores, foundation and concealer that will help give me a no make up look that will help protect my skin from the sun, a good highlighter, Mascara and lipgloss.
Strong eye or strong lip?
Actually, I like both! A strong eye depending on the outfit and a strong lip depending on the occasion.
What’s the best piece of beauty advice you have ever been given?
The best piece of beauty advice that I’ve ever been given was to remove my make up before bed and don’t forget your 3 step face regime.
Everyone loves a Sunday night pampering session. Talk us through yours.
A perfect Sunday pampering evening for me would be inviting my girls over for a nice tea, face masks and catching up with each other and sharing our beauty secrets.
What is your most decadent beauty product?
It would have to be a fragrance that I was recently introduced to by Beyoncé, i highly recommend all woman own a fragrance by Clive Christian. I have the VIII Rococo
What’s your favourite hairstyle for a glamorous night out, and how do you achieve it?
My favorite hairstyle for a glamorous night out would be loose old Hollywood curls and I achieve this by using Oribe moisturizing styling cream and my favorite curling iron.
