Her earliest makeup memories

“One thing is for sure I have always loved makeup. My earliest memory is going to the fancy-dress box & putting on my high-heeled click clack shoes, my favourite sleeping beauty dress and raiding my mum’s makeup bag.

My mother has always been very glamorous & I think that’s where my signature look of a bold red lip and lots of mascara stems from.”

Her makeup bag and what’s inside


“I have just come back from a wonderful honeymoon, so I thought I would share with you my travelling beauty bag of tricks. I only take the absolute essentials with me so I can have it as hand luggage, I wouldn’t want this bag of goodness disappearing in the hold, that’s for sure!

“Whether I am on holiday or just meeting a friend for coffee, I enjoy having a bit of a make-up detox from time to time and embrace the ‘almost’ natural look, these are my key products to help me along the way.”

“This is a lovely light moisturiser, it hydrates the skin leaving it lovely and smooth and sits perfectly underneath any makeup.”

Bioderma Photoderm Nude Touch SPF 50 Natural Tint


This is my favourite newbie, I was introduced to this by another makeup artist, she very sweetly decanted some ready for my honeymoon & said it will rock my world. She is correct, this natural matt tint is beautifully lightweight and can be applied with your fingertips. It looks like skin and gives you and amazing natural complexion both in real life and in photos and the pièce de résistance, its SPF 50.  

Illamasqua cream blusher in ‘Dixie’


I love the colour of this peachy cream blusher, perfect for evening or daytime and the creamy consistency gives you that dewy glow that everyone wants. I not only use it on my cheeks but also on my lips to add a pop of colour which ties everything together.   

Bobbie Brown Long-Wear Shadow Stick in ‘Bark’


“When I am out and about or on holiday, I don’t want to carry lots of brushes with me, they take up too much room. So when it comes to eyeshadows I love Bobbie Brown’s shadow sticks. I use the stick like a crayon, over my eyelids and blend in with my fingertips, it’s just so easy.

“This is a must, waterproof mascara that actually wont budge. It really is my go-to, whether you are a bride, on a night out or running a marathon, this stuff stays. 

Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breath Professional Make-Up Remover


“You wouldn’t think this is the most important product but I wont leave the house without it. It has so many uses, I start everyday by cleansing my face with it, I adjust any little makeup mishaps or quick changes using a cotton bud on the go & at the end of the day it removes everything from waterproof mascara to full-on glitter. It is such good value, every makeup artist should have it in their kit and every woman should have it in their handbag.”
