The first beauty product I fell in love with was the Elnett hairspray. Everyone’s used it, and it’s just such a cult product to this day. It’s been around forever, but I love it for scraping back any baby hairs. Every time I use it now, the scent just transports me back in time. 

Watching my mum apply her signature red lipstick is one of my earliest beauty memories. She’d never go anywhere without it and seeing her stay loyal to her daily make-up kit is definitely something I’ve adopted. 

When it comes to skincare, serums are my holy grail. I think they’re so important for boosting the skin with actives, post-cleanse and pre-moisturiser. I personally like products that contain hyaluronic acid for a burst of hydration and the Revitalift Filler Serum is great for this. 

For events, MY DRESS really INDICATES WHAT MAKE-UP I GO FOR. My stylist and glam team work really well together to make sure things FEEL COHESIVE.


My favourite moisturisers usually contain a mixture of vitamin C and SPF. This means my skin is properly nourished, but it still looks bright and fresh, while the added SPF gives me extra protection. 

I’m a mascara girl, through and through. It’s truly my number one ride-or-die product. Even if I don’t wear anything else on my face, I'll still wear mascara. I like a bit of subtle definition and volume without any heavy clumping. It’s all about that clean but lengthened look – and that’s why I love the Panorama Mascara. 

You’ll rarely find me without lipstick in my purse. While glosses and balms are on everyone's lips at the moment, I’m a classic matte lip girl. The Colour Riche range is amazing.

For events, my dress really indicates what make-up I go for. My stylist and glam team work really well together to make sure things feel cohesive. At Cannes, for example, it was super important that if my look was colourful, I’d strip things back and go for a more natural vibe with a simple glossy lip. However, if the look was a bit more minimalist, a bold lip would’ve been a more exciting choice. Generally, I like a bold eye for events, so I always start there, and opt for a lip that works best with this and the dress. 

The BEST BEAUTY ADVICE I’ve ever been given is: LESS IS MORE. Oh, and skincare is everything.

Body oil is one of my summer must-haves. I love the one from Biologique Recherche and often also make sure I’ve got an argan oil somewhere in my stash, too. My tip is to go for one that contains as few ingredients as possible – I love the Bio-Oil  as it’s super simple. I’ll use this on my body but also my hair to keep both feeling silky smooth and nourished. 

A hack I’ve been loving lately is using a glow-giving skin-hybrid all over my body. By now, you’ve likely come across the Lumi Glotion, but it’s such a winner in my eyes – plus it’s so affordable. I like to use it as a primer before my foundation, but a bit of body glow is just as important, so I’ve been making sure to pop a bit on my arms, legs and chest too. 

The best beauty advice I’ve ever been given is: less is more. Oh, and skincare is everything. Always make sure you remove your make-up before bed as well – and never forget to wear SPF.
