Which beauty products do you swear by?
I love all kinds of skin products – oils, creams and serums.
I love masks and face sheets, which
I apply and leave on, whilst I’m doing things around the house in the evening.
What are your essential cosmetics?
Any lipstick that has a perfect shade of bright, lush red is a must.
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet La Fascinante and MAC Ruby Woo are two great ones.
Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes is a wonderful mascara with a rounded tip that gives every lash a beautiful curl, and Marc Jacobs Dew Drops is the perfect highlighter.
Armani Lip Magnet is great for cheek blush and lip tint.
How do you care for your hair?
My hair is very long.
I use a lot of conditioner and then I let it air dry and put it up in two buns and when I take them out it’s wavy and smooth.
Do you have any top beauty tips?
Shimmer is great for cheeks, eyelids and the top of lips plus shoulders and collarbones and Too Faced Glitter Pop Eyeliner Fairy Queen is a great eye glitter that gives you instant glamour.
What do you think makes a woman look beautiful?
Fresh dewy skin, windblown hair and red lips works for me.
How do you make sure you look good for photographs?
For me, lighting is everything.
Always be alert to lighting around you! It’s really more about lighting than yourself.
How do you stay in shape?
I box three times a week and do yoga twice a week.
What’s your signature fragrance?
I’m never without my Strangelove Perfume Oil Necklace.
I am the creative director of Strangelove NYC – Elizabeth Gaynes founded the company and I jumped on board right away.
Who are your beauty and style inspirations?
I love Marilyn Monroe; she always looked wonderful, so full of spirit.
Also Frida Kahlo and Jean Seberg, Roz Lewis.
