Favourites 7

For body…

I mix raw shea butter with Tata Harper’s Revitalizing Body Oil to form a thick cream which offers intense hydration.
 

For brows…

I use the Nails & Brows Brow Filler to create tiny hair like strokes that make my brows look naturally fuller.

For under eye circles…

I don’t wear foundation all over my face, but I like to use the Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick (in walnut) just under my eyes. It works to treat to cover dark circles.

For skin…

I always use oils on my face and I’m a big fan of Chantecaille’s Rose de Mai Face Oil - it really brightens my complexion.

For cleansing…

I love Chantecaille’s Rice and Geranium Foaming Cleanser. It cleanses while softening and moisturizing my skin.

For a hair treatment…

I have a weekly hair treatment using the exfoliating salt scrub at my Hair Lounge salon on Portobello Road.

For hair styling…

I use the Charlotte Mensah Manketti Hair Oil and Charlotte Mensah Manketti Finishing Mist religiously. It leaves my hair hydrated, smooth and perfectly polished.

For lips…

I love Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment in the shade Slow Ride. It’s comfortable, long lasting and doesn't dry your lips out.

For nails…

Essie is my go-to. I love the shades Fifth Avenue (a red orange) and Bordeaux (a deep burgundy).

 

For fragrance…

I like to layer two to three perfumes at a time - it’s an excellent way to create my own bespoke scent. My favourites are Tocca Bianca and Byredo La Tulipe.
