Wearing: A leather jacket that I’ve had forever. A Marciano silk black tank, Habitual dark denim skinnies, a Zara red belt, a scarf (my favourite accessory) from a friend, bangles from Aldo, The Bay and vintage and Christian Louboutin shoes!
Favourite makeup artists: Kabuki, Pat nMcGrath, Scott Barnes, Jon Hennessey, Kevyn Aucoin and Dick Page.
Favourite cosmetic lines: Make Up For Ever, Laura Mercier, NARS, MAC, Stila and Scott Barnes.
Go-to look: Sultry well-blended smoky eye nwith nude lip (my trick is to use concealer then lip gloss). Or, I’m really into the strong matte lip, liquid liner and full eyelashes. I’m a huge fan of false lashes and contouring nand highlighting the face structure to bring out features. It’s like magic.
Would never wear: With makeup professionals, never say never, there are no rules! The nice thing about it is that you can experiment and if it doesn’t work, just wipe it noff.
Can’t get enough of: Blush! It’s the one thing I find nalways fades, you can never have enough!
Always carry with you: My Kiehl’s nLip Balm #1.
My motto: Huge believer in taking care of your skin, if you have great skin everything else that you put on your face will look amazing.
Favourite girls with style: Jennifer Lopez, Dita Von Teese and Kate Moss.
Dream job: Celebrity makeup artist, getting them glammed up for the red carpet. Working backstage in nmajor fashion shows such as Galliano and Heatherette. And shooting editorial work and traveling.
