I’m not wild about wearing much make-up day to day, however if there’s one thing I use daily it’s my perfume, Coco Chanel. I saved up for my first bottle when I was 14 and I’ve worn it over the last decade religiously. My mum always had a bottle on her dressing table when I was growing up so it reminds me of her, and I always feel more confident and together when I have it on, despite the state of my desk. A beauty hero inspired by a beautiful hero!

“I’m obsessed with Susanne Kaufmann’s Advanced Anti-Aging System Night Cream Repair Skin Control. I apply it every night before I go to sleep and wake up with wonderfully soft and fresh feeling skin each morning. Her products are handmade in Austria using entirely organic active ingredients providing a holistic approach to skincare in today’s silicone heavy beauty market.”

One of my (too) many makeup obsessions is Lime Crime’s Matte Velvetines lipstick. I have countless shades but if I had to pic a front runner it would be the classic dusty-rose nude, Cashmere. The formula is rich and velvety (as advertised!) long lasting and nontransferable. One application can last up to 8 hours.The line is vegan and cruelty free and who couldn’t love a brand who’s tagline is ‘makeup for unicorns’.

“For the longest time, I’ve struggled to find the perfect nude and now that I’ve found it, it’s never leaving my makeup kit! This is the CTZN Nudiversal Lip Duo in Shade 10: Ibiza and I’m obsessed with it! It comes with two sides with a matte lipstick on one end, which is super creamy and pigmented and a hydrating lip gloss on the other that never leaves my lips chapped! This is definitely my beauty HERO!”

"L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes…. Forget all the pricey options – I’ve tried Lancome, Hourglass, YSL… but I come back time and again to this amazing mascara! I always prefer a plastic brush with a tapered end, which this has – it doesn’t clump and it easy to apply. It seems to last for ages – and I use it every single day. I never leave the house without mascara. I have long lashes, but they aren’t that thick, this volumises them to the max! It’s easy to get off, no scrubbing required, and even comes I a waterproof variety!"

"I love layering the fragrances and experimenting with how the different scents blend together - it makes any outing more exciting. It’s become a little ritual of reflection for me and my mood."

I don’t wear a lot of make-up (and who can in the heat!?) but I never leave the house without a liberal dabbing of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream with SPF 30. It keeps my skin soft and naturally camera ready with sun protection built in.
