So what makes a woman “REAL”?
Inner confidence and no surgical enhancements!
“Less is More” – Yes or No?
Wear whatever makes you feel good and change your wardrobe and makeup depending on how you’re feeling and where you’re going.
Who is the most glamorous celebrity you’ve ever done up?
The most surprising transformation into a glamour puss was a recent shoot I did with ex-Corrie (aka Coronation Street) actress Shobna Gulati.
What’s the number one mistake women make when it comes to cosmetics?
Holding onto to a look they’ve had for years! Update your look twice a year – hairdo, colours and wardrobe, etc.
What’s the secret to looking good naked?
Confidence, good body treatments, loving ALL your wobbly bits….and keep EVERYTHING tidy!!! (You know what I mean.)
What are your recommended desert island beauty products?
Sisley – All day All Year (protection against environmental damage for 8hrs)
Arden – 8hr Cream (fab for lips, cuticles and dry/damaged skin)
Origins – Way of the Bath Body Polisher and Jergens Body Ultra Hydrator (keeps your body smooth)
Shavata – Eyebrow kit (you may be on a desert island, but that’s still no excuse for a mono-brow!)
What beauty brands do you love?
For eye makeup I love Mac, Dior and Shu Uemura. Givenchy Phenomen’eyes Mascara. For skincare you can’t beat, Sisley or Origins new organic range.
What’s your favorite bag?
I’m loving my old D&G blue suede man bag (I’m saying man bag but it probably isn’t!)
