Now that you’re doing morning radio, how are you finding the change with waking up early?
I can definitely say it’s been a change, and it’s all about doing everything quite quickly in the morning and prep the night before. For example my beauty routine in the morning is down to 5-10 minutes meaning at night I spend more time looking after my skin and doing hair treatments.
What about makeup – do you find that you still have to wear makeup even though you’re on radio?
Yes I do actually, because everything is filmed and recorded. Plus we’ve always got guests and you always want to look presentable in front of them, and your colleagues. Casual and effortless is my go-to.
What’s your makeup look during the day?
[It’s] simple: a little tinted moisturiser or foundation, some blush and mascara, Lucas’ Pawpaw with a little lip liner and nicely moisturised skin.
What’s your go-to makeup look for a red carpet event?
My go-to would be lashes and brows, but I like to change up the overall look event to event. I think some stylists can get carried away and change your look, but what always works for me is feeling pretty while looking like me.
What are 5 beauty items you can’t live without?
JBronze Medium Tanning Mousse gives the perfect glow. Always moisturise your elbows, hands, knees and ankles before applying!
Alpha Keri Heat-activating Firming and Slimming Serum. Use it after you scrub and before you use body butter, daily. I put it on, I can feel it doing its thing and it just works!
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. I love this as it’s really natural and light; I can still see my freckles when I wear it, which is what I prefer.
Lucas’ Pawpaw Ointment. I’m never without this. It just works and can be used all the time. Sometimes all I wear on my lips is Pawpaw and a little lip liner.
