Being a model means you are always on top of your beauty regime. Are there any tips and tricks you can share on how you stay looking your best?
Try sleep! I barely get to due to jet lag. I have recently started using Lancôme “genifique yeux,” my eyes look fresher already! Always use a very intense moisturiser, I love Clinique- dramatically different moisturiser, La Mer is fab too. Hair – Redken volumising shampoo and ultra soft conditioner. Lots of mascara and punchy lips, go easy on the make up!
Dress how you feel, never do 1000 outfit changes, if it’s the first thing you put on, that’s what your subconscious chose, before your mind said “hang on a minute” don’t mess with that. Always carry plasters. And never leave the house without some Bex Rox bling.
