Q: What are your top three products from the collection?
A: The liquid highlighters/illuminators, the lashes and the lipglosses – they have good pigment and texture and they smell great.
Q: And your number one hero piece?
A: Illuminators, they’re really good – just as good as expensive brands.
Q: Ultimate beauty tip when it comes to doing your own make-up?
A: Always use luminisers underneath foundation as it gives you a nice dewy glow – I mix it with moisturiser and then apply foundation on top. Skin is the most important thing; just apply foundation where you need it rather than all over. Eyebrows really frame the face, so make sure they’re in good shape with a brow gel or kit.
Q: Are there any multitasking products in the collection?
A: I use lipglosses on the eyelids to create a nice, glossy look. Big Spender in particular has a bit of shimmer in it that would look lovely on eyes. You could use a highlighter on your eyelid too with mascara to create a glow, which always looks really modern.
Q: What is your top pick from the collection for a daytime to night-time look?
A: The Hollywood Red lipstick – you can add that to any look and even with bare eyes it makes you feel dressed up and polished.
