My beauty philosophy is… Keep it simple and drink lots of water. I admire people who have confidence in their natural beauty and don’t pack on the makeup. The people I find most beautiful are those with a kind heart and a great sense of humour.

The skincare products I can’t live without are… I just started using an alpha hydrox anti-wrinkle day cream that I had a friend bring over from New York. It must be a quarter-life crisis thing but I’m loving it. Let’s just hope it works.

My haircare secret is… I’m constantly changing shampoo and conditioner so don’t have a favourite but I use Moroccanoil on my ends now and then to give them a bit of moisture.

The must-have products in my makeup bag are… I love Diorshow Blackout Mascara. It’s the only

makeup I put on during the day. It doesn’t make your lashes clump up and it’s such a bold black that I find it’s all I ever need. The only other cosmetic I need with me on a daily basis is my (non-oily) Sheer Cover Concealer.

My favourite beauty treat is… Getting my hair done and having a long shower with my exfoliating gloves.

My biggest beauty sin is… Squeezing pimples, hence why I can’t live without my concealer. During a season I wear a lot of stage makeup which is not great for my pores, so I have to try hard not to mess with my skin.

The best thing my mother taught me about beauty was… My mum is a doctor so a common reminder was to put sunscreen on your neck as well as everywhere else.
