The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is drink a bottle of water in bed, while looking on the internet for ideas for the radio show that day.

Once I’m up, I wash my face with Murad products. I use Redness Therapy Soothing Gel Cleanser, followed by Sensitive Skin Smoothing Serum, Renewing Eye Cream & Anti-Aging SPF30 Moisturiser.

If I’m not filming that day, I’ll only put on a little bit of bronzer and foundation because I’ve already had my eyelashes lifted and eyebrows tattooed at Lash Noir Ink.

If I am filming that day, I’ll start my base by applying MAC Strobe Cream or MAC Timecheck lotion, followed by MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation.

For my cheeks I’ll use MAC Mineralize blush and bronzer and MAC Prep and Prime highlighter in ‘radiant rose’.

I always carry Murad sunscreen in my bag because I’m paranoid about getting sunburnt.

Eyeliner for me is an absolute must, and I use MAC Teddy Eyeliner for my water line and MAC Penultimate eyeliner in rapidblack for my lash line.

Whenever we have a photoshoot I always say “You can do whatever you want as long as I have eyeliner.” I don’t know why but it makes me feel a million times better!

Night’s out

If I’m out and about during the day and need to touch up my makeup to go out for the night, I add a bit more foundation, some MAC velvet teddy lipstick, MAC maroon palette on my eyes and a spray of coconut scented MAC Studio fix to make my makeup last and glow!

If I’m heading to a big fancy event, I’ll always get a spray tan the night before and get my makeup professionally done so I know it’ll last and look a lot better than what I could attempt!

Evening beauty routine

Before going to bed I’ll wash my face with Murad Refreshing Cleanser and apply Murad Age Reform Complete Reform which has glycolic acid in it, it’s incredible. I’ll then pop on Murad hydro dynamic moisturizer and eye cream.

As my hair is dyed blonde, every night I’ll put some Eleven Miracle Hair through the ends, to help with the damage.

My favourite way to pamper myself is to get a microdermabrasion and glycolic facial once a month at Caci Clinic.

These regular facials have been a complete game changer for my skin and I now feel confident going out without wearing makeup.

My celebrity beauty icon would have to be Khloe Kardashian as I’m always copying her hair colour!

Every six weeks I get my hair cut and coloured by Katie Hook at Loxys, she nails it every single time and because she’s not happy if you’re not happy, she’ll always make sure it’s exactly how you want or suggest something that’ll look even better than what you’re thinking.

As I’ve gotten older my approach to beauty has changed as these days I take way better care of my skin, and never leave the house without some form of SPF on my face.

If I could go back and tell my 20 year old self anything, it would be to always wear an SPF moisturizer and eye cream, and don’t forget your neck and décolletage area.
