What’s your beauty regime?
Beauty is a healthy glowing skin, I use lots and lots of moisturiser. If I go out it’s all about a black liner and no mascara, mascara makes me feel too girly.
Who is the most beautiful person in the world?
Do you think you would swap if given the chance?
In a heartbeat! There is something in her eyes, an intensity that is to die for.
What makes someone beautiful?
Confidence and a good heart. I believe all evil comes from a lack of confidence and insecurity.
Which make-up artists have you loved working with?
They are all so different, it’s hard to say! Lisa Butler is cuckoo, she is like a volcano of creativity. Wendy Rowe is about amazing skin, Stephane Marais always creates something iconic and Dick Page looks like he has just been in the forest chopping down trees. A gentle giant. I also love how Tom Pecheux supports young designers and Pat Mcgrath knows a girl’s face and works with it. She is brilliant at adapting, even on shows to understand what will work best with each individual girl.
