Information & Advice
My favourite show was for the brand Frost French. We created a circus film and had Helena Christensen as the ring master and Jerry Hall as the lion tamer. It was really creative and a refreshing change from the super slick looks of the traditional catwalk.
Not to rush skin preparation. Hydration is key to a perfect complexion so I always encourage my team to concentrate on giving the girls a facial massage before they start the base.
Grace Jones. She has amazing presence.
A complete colour blast! Pastels were very hot this year, but I predict make up artists are going to be much braver with their colour choices and use all textures, powders, creams and glosses in a less traditional way which will inspire all of us to add a few new shades to our summer make up bag. It's a very exciting, experimental time for make up.
Stella McCartney works a summer wardrobe like no other designer.
I'm a big fan of smoky eyes but this season I'm going to be adding a hint of colour to my lids and blending it into the charcoal black. It feels and looks really fresh and modern.
Pat McGrath is a total inspiration; she is in a league of her own. Alex Box has the most amazing capability to merge her artistic visions to the face. I love to study her work and absorb her unique use of colour in her creations.
I can't really pin point that. Make up comes very naturally to me. Usually I arrive to a job with very little info on what I'm doing but, once I start working and communicating with someone, I absorb their features and it follows from there!
I wheel a massive family suitcase of make up around with me each day so there is very little I don't have!
Hydration and massage – you can't transform a dry, lacklustre complexion.
Confidence. I've worked with incredibly beautiful women who are very unsure about the way they look. But I have learned that the most average looking man or woman can be utterly beautiful and captivating when their positive energy shines within them and their eyes. To be confident you need to love yourself first.
Use a cream eyeshadow rather than a powder, as the texture is totally different and looks much fresher and more modern on your eyes.
Don't try it on your hand as your hands aren't pink. The lipstick shade you choose will look totally different on your lips. Always test on your lips and, for the most natural shade, opt for a tone two shades darker than your own.
We as British women need to bother more. Make up for eyes and lips is back on the catwalk but the majority of women's attitude is not to look like you have even bothered to put make up on. I think we need to revive the power of a full make up. Let's take a leaf out of the French ladies' book and celebrate more personal grooming.
