THE ONE BEAUTY MIS­TAKE TO AVOID?

The wrong shade of foun­da­tion. Test out the colour in a nat­u­ral light: use your fin­gers to draw a line of foun­da­tion onto your cheek, neck and ears, and if it’s the right colour, it should blend seam­lessly into the skin.

WHAT’S YOUR SIG­NA­TURE SCENT?

My own per­fume, Scent of a Dream, of course. It has top notes (lemon, peach and black pep­per) to lift the senses, erotic flo­ral notes (tuberose, jas­mine, frank­in­cense, vi­o­let and patchouli) to at­tract love and light, and se­duc­tive base notes (Fire Tree, Iso E Su­per, He­dione and Am­broxan) to am­plify your own scent.

MOST MEM­O­RABLE MAKE-UP MO­MENT?

Creat­ing Kate’s [Moss] in­cred­i­ble make-up look for her Cast­away shoot [for Vogue] in June 2002. It kick-started a trend for bronzed, beau­ti­ful skin. Sum­mer make-up should dial up your fea­tures and ac­cen­tu­ate lu­mi­nous skin.

CA­REER-DEFINING MO­MENT?

Launch­ing my own beauty brand nearly four years ago. I came up with the brand idea at 13 and it devel­oped as I worked as a make-up artist for 25 years.

I’m pas­sion­ate about em­pow­er­ing women to look and feel their most beau­ti­ful.

WHO IN­SPIRES YOU?

I have a mix of cre­atives, rule break­ers and vi­sion­ar­ies that I look to for in­spi­ra­tion:

Coco Chanel, He­lena Ruben­stein, Walt Dis­ney, Steve Jobs, Win­ston Churchill, Estée Lauder… the list goes on.

WHAT’S YOUR BEST MAKE-UP TIP?

By trac­ing the nat­u­ral out­line of your lips, you can com­pletely re-shape and re-size the cupid’s bow, as well as any un­even­ness in an in­stant. My Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pil­low Talk, £16, mim­ics the nat­u­ral shade of lips, so you can cheat a per­fect pout in sec­onds.

BEST SK­IN­CARE TIP?

When it comes to sk­in­care, my top tip would al­ways be to cleanse, hy­drate and nour­ish the skin. I al­ways say you can’t have a beau­ti­ful paint­ing with­out a beau­ti­ful can­vas. It’s all about hav­ing a fresh, ra­di­ant com­plex­ion.
