Who inspires you?
Anyone that has or is facing failure  and has had the courage to get back up again, no matter what. Katie Piper has to be one the most inspirational woman out there for me.

If you could choose 2 celebrities to have dinner with who would it be?

  • Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) – would love a make up session with Kate to give her a different look such as a smokey eye. That would really suit her.
  • Simon Cowell – I think the banter would be good

If you could pick 5 make up products only from your make up bag what would it be?

  • Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser, 
  • Benefit mascara,
  • Laura Geller Baked Bronzers
  • Mac Relentlessly red. A red lip for when I need to perk it up! 
  • Kiko full coverage concealer.  

Favourite food?
I love a home cooked British roast! I adore roast potatoes, the crispier the better. My husband cooks the best roast!

Favourite type of music
Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith & Rag & Bone man.

Favourite movie
Dirty Dancing for me with it's iconic music. That’s what inspires me into performance mode. Growing up my sister and I would watch it every Saturday. We knew the script back to front!
