100% bronzer (preferably cream). Can’t go without it, just makes me look and feel so much better.

Clinique cleansing balm! Just makes the routine of taking your makeup off so much quicker and easier. Skin feel very clean and soft afterwards!

• What are you looking most forward to in the role?

Encourage people to try more, but at the same time support all of their daily needs and preferences in terms of makeup and skincare, relieving stress from shopping, as it might be quite overwhelming to find the right products when there is so many of them.

I’m also looking forward to becoming better, trying out new products, trends and techniques on myself in order to share this with our customers in the future.

• What is your favourite brand in store?

Absolutely nobody will be surprised from me when I say Too Faced. They are a serious makeup brand that have amazing performance products but they are a brand who know how to have fun with pretty and innovative packaging that are staples in anyone’s makeup bag.

• What makeup product could you not live without?

For me personally, as I’ve gotten older I can forego a lot of things except when it comes to my eyebrows. As long as I have a brow gel handy, I’m ready to take on the world!

• What is your go to skincare hero?

I will always swear by Elizabeth Arden’s 8 hour cream. This is a product that has consistently saved my skin after episodes of contact dermatitis from other products or when my moisture barrier has been damaged or impaired. I always have a full tube of this in my wash bag in case I have a skincare related SOS.

• What are you most looking forward to in the role?

I’ve worked in this industry for an awful long time. What I’m most looking forward to in this brand new opportunity is being able to bring the benefit of unbiased advice and expertise to enhance customers overall experience. We don’t all fit into one box or category and our beauty and makeup choices should reflect that of the results and the looks that we desire. I’m super excited to help people get everything they want out of the products they choose and share my own tips and tricks for them to achieve what they’re looking for at home too!
