The key is balance – not too shiny, not too powdery. I use Stila One Step Illuminate a lot – under foundation, as a highlighter or by itself. It gives a beautiful lit-fro within finish that wakes up your makeup and makes you look fresher. And I love Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for under the eyes and across the nose it’s a great flawless texture.
WHAT’S A COMMON MISTAKE YOU SEE? Your makeup should change depending on what’s going on with your skin. Don’t just wear something because it’s always been your routine – experiment with products. That’s one of the biggest differences with professionals – they use the one product in lots of different ways. WHAT ARE YOUR BEAUTY MUST-HAVES? There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wear Stila Convertible Colour. It’s the first thing I grab for my own face and for shoots, the red carpet or the runway. With three shades – Peony, Camellia and Poppy
I can pretty much do anyone’s makeup. They look great on cheeks and lips. I also like perfumes that aren’t overpowering.
I don’t want to have too much fragrance on when I’m in someone’s personal space. WHAT ELSE IS ALWAYS IN YOUR KIT? Cleansing water. It’s great when I’m working backstage because it doesn’t leave a residue. Wipes can irritate the skin, so the water is more gentle. I love face mists, too. They give a quick refresh and feel a bit indulgent. And of course a great moisturiser and lip balm.
