What’s your beauty/skincare regime like?
I like to think I take quite good care of my skin. No matter how tired I am, I always take off every last bit of make-up before going to bed. I also exfoliate regularly and I like to use a good facemask once a week.
Do you go for beauty treatments?
I’m afraid I’m not very adventurous when it comes to beauty treatments! It’s not quite a beauty treatment but I do like to treat my mam and I to a nice massage at the spa every now and again. I look forward to using the naturallypretty.info steam room and saunas almost as much as the massage itself!
Make-up products you couldn’t live without?
Having fair hair, I can’t live without mascara. If I had to hand over everything in my make-up bag except one product, I would choose to keep the mascara as it defines the eyes and makes them pop. I’ve been using Diorshow for years but recently I’ve tried YSL Shocking and I really liked it!
Skincare products you couldn’t live without?
Can I say water? Water is an amazing skincare “product.”
Best piece of beauty advice?
Less is more. Especially when it comes to fake tan and blusher! Some people really go overboard!
Who does your hair?
I always do my own hair, I’am my own stylist! Aside from wearing it down, I’m a huge fan of plaits and I learned how to do a fishbone plait watching a YouTube hair tutorial. It takes less than five minutes and it’s such an easy, relaxed style to wear. If ever I need a blow-dry or a trim, I stay local and go to Occasions hair salon, which is five minutes away from my house. I’ve been going there for forever!
Do you have a favourite make-up artist?
Much like with my hair, I tend to do my own make-up. From my debs, to work and social events I attend, I’ve always done my own. Sometimes I’m adventurous and try out new trends but for the most part I have a look that I’m used to and I stick to it.
For years I’ve worn D&G perfume. I tend to alternate between Light Blue in the summer and L’Imperatrice throughout the rest of the year. I love any scent that is light and fresh.
Describe your style?
Young, girly and not-necessarily-on-trend. I think my personal style is elegant, as I tend to wear a lot of pieces that I think are timeless. I’m not really one to follow trends when it comes to dressing myself. I like to wear clothes that suit my body and that I feel comfortable in; comfort is always key! No matter how much I might love something, if I’m not comfortable in it, I won’t wear it. I love fashion and I keep up with the trends but I’m afraid they just don’t always suit me.
I’m a high street girl but I love Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein and Tom Ford.
Favourite high street store?
It may seem unusual for a girl but I’ve never been especially loyal to just one store – my wardrobe is a mish mash of clothes from all sorts of high street shops. I guess because there are so many brands under one roof, House of Fraser brings me back again and again.
