1. What are your 3 Winter survival beauty/make up must haves?

Definitely a good emollient moisturiser, Steam Cream is a really lovely and affordable option you can pick these up at Farmers!

I love wearing darker/warmer colours in winter and I am obsessed with dark lips so a dark lipstick for me is essential in colder weather, at the moment my fave would have to be Lime Crime’s Velvetine in ‘Wicked’ it just vamps up any look!

Morroccan Oil hair products, its literally like sorcery for dry hair 😉

2. What’s your top beauty tip?

Looking after your skin, drink loads of water and take evening primrose oil, make up only looks as good as the canvas underneath, evening primrose oil helps you have a radiant blemish free complexion.

3. Who are your favourite beauty gurus? (Youtube, blogs etc…) and why?

I have soooo many I couldn’t possibly choose! But my favourite artist at the moment has to be Samer Khouzami his work is literally real life photoshop!

4. What are your all time top 3 favourite make up products and why?

This is a really hard question because I love so many products, but if I had to narrow it down to 3 I would say, Maybelline Fit Me Foundation stick in #330, Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer it creates the most flawless highlight, Inglot #77 Gel Liner simply because it is so so intensely black, Anastasia Beverley Hills brow pomade for flawlessly shaped brows! whoops that four! see I can’t possibly keep it to three hehe 😉

5. When did you first get into make up and why?

I wore a tinted lip balm in primary school and felt like the biggest beauty queen! I used to looooove watching my mum put on her makeup! I thought she looked like a movie star so I guess from a young age it fascinated me!

6. If you had $500 to spend on make up, what would you buy and why?

I would probably spend it on a HUGE give away for my viewers, I love doing give aways I am so grateful for every single subscriber who keep me going and inspired everyday! Some comments literally make me teary eyed (I’m a softy) so whenever I can I try to give them something in return!
