What are your top three items from the collection, and why?
The illuminating primer, as it is the perfect base for dewy skin. The translucent powder, as it is super light and keeps your make up in place. And the foundation, as it gives the skin an amazing coverage without looking heavy.
What do you think of the P.S. Pro packaging?
The packaging looks very classic and premium, I was really impressed by it.
What are your top tips for taking a beauty look from day-to-night?
A pop of colour on the lips is the quickest way to transform your look from day to night. Black kohl liner along the waterline is another great way of darkening up the eyes and giving them more of a night time feel.
Which beauty product could you not live without, and why?
Liquid highlighter as its the quickest way to make your skin long younger.
What’s your favourite make-up trend for SS16?
Bronzed goddess is always a safe trend to follow in the summer months. It suits every colouring and skin tone, and can be so soft and effortless.
And what trends are you looking forward to for AW16?
The biggest trend for AW16 is deep and dark lips, the more daring the better.
Who’s your biggest beauty inspiration, and why?
My mum is my biggest beauty inspiration and is definitely the reason I take such pride in my appearance. She always looks immaculately groomed. She doesn't wear a lot of make up, just enough to show off her gorgeous features.
What’s the biggest make-up misconception you’re keen to eradicate?
A lot of girls do use make up as a mask, which totally takes away from their own natural beauty. For example, lots of girls ask me to hide their freckles, I absolutely love freckles and think they are so youthful.
What do you love most about make-up?
Make up is a powerful thing- it can totally change a person's mood. I love nothing more than turning a mirror around, showing a client their make-up, and watching their face light up.
