What does be­ing a L’Oréal spokesmodel mean to you? L’Oréal is a brand that’s hugely in­flu­en­tial and glob­ally ac­ces­si­ble so, nat­u­rally, it’s a huge hon­our. But it also means that I get to work closely with a great team of peo­ple – they’re like fam­ily and in­spire women to be­lieve in their own beauty and sense of self worth. Who is your beauty icon? Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe. She rein­vented her im­age to be­come an icon. Tell us more about your daily beauty rou­tine. It changes de­pend­ing on travel and work. I do have one vi­tal reg­i­men, which is to re­move all make-up be­fore bed. I carry L’Oréal Skin Per­fec­tion Pu­ri­fy­ing Cleans­ing Wipes in my purse and use them ev­ery night. Be­tween two ights or dur­ing fash­ion week, this is a prod­uct I’ve grown to cher­ish. How do you get ready for a red car­pet evening? My make-up is usu­ally pretty min­i­mal, whether I em­pha­sise my lips or eyes. I usu­ally opt for a sexy cat-eye or a bold colour lip­stick. I love L’Oréal’s Colour Riche Pure Red matte lip­sticks. You have amaz­ing hair. What made you de­cide to turn blonde? I wanted to take a chance and re­ally trans­form my look. My agent sug­gested bleach­ing my hair to plat­inum blonde and that’s how it started – three years ago!

GET SOO JOO’S MIN­I­MAL LOOK

1. Soo Joo has a porce­lain fin­ish to her skin Use pow­der over your foun­da­tion or a pow­der foun­da­tion to mat­tify.

2. A bold eye is a Soo Joo sig­na­ture Keep eye­lids clean and use a liq­uid or gel liner to cre­ate strong lines.

3. Ap­ply sev­eral lay­ers of mas­cara to give lashes loads of vol­ume Add fur­ther coats to the top lashes to cre­ate the il­lu­sion of falsies.

4. Al­ter­nate a bold eye with a bold lip in red or bright pink shades No need for lip liner as Soo Joo’s lip look has a feathered, om­bré ap­pear­ance.
