Bri­tish, 19 The model does ho­tel room work­outs and eats bagels with jam

for break­fast


Favourite make-up

brand: “Char­lotte Til­bury. I don’t wear make-up that of­ten, but Char­lotte Til­bury has re­ally good pal­ettes, such as eye­shadow and con­tour. They have beau­ti­ful shades that are easy to use, and not to men­tion the pack­ag­ing.” Foun­da­tion

& con­cealer: “Mois­ture Cover Con­cealer by MAC and Ex 1 Cos­met­ics Liq­uid Foun­da­tion.” Go-to lip

colour: Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpt­ing Lip­stick in #410. Mas­cara: Dior Wa­ter­proof Mas­cara. Cur­rent scent: Gucci Guilty. Sig­na­ture

make-up hack: “Heat your eye lash curler with a blow dryer and it makes a mini curl­ing iron

for your lashes.”


Food in­tol­er­ances: “Milk specif­i­cally. But I have foods with dairy in them.” Work­out method: “I try to do short con­cen­trated 15 minute work­outs a day. I travel a lot and I like these as you can do them in your ho­tel room.” Guilty food plea­sures: Choco­late.

Drink pref­er­ence: “I usu­ally have one or two cups of green tea a day, and also a gin­ger or turmeric and cayenne shot a cou­ple of times a week.” Break­fast:

“Re­cently, my go to every­day is a bagel with jam. Some­times I make por­ridge with al­mond but­ter and blue­ber­ries.”

Food dislikes: “I don’t like some fish types.”


Skin­care rou­tine:

“I wash my face with Ce­taphil cleanser and use Cau­dalie Beauty Elixir spray and Av­enue Ci­cal­fate moisturiser after.” Go-to prod­uct for skin

emer­gen­cies: Char­lotte Til­bury God­dess Skin Clay Mask. Flight es­sen­tials: “The con­cen­trated hand cream by Neu­tro­gena.”

Hair sched­ule: “I cut my hair after ev­ery fash­ion month and ev­ery two to three months.” Style

se­cret: “I put oil on the ends to make it look healthy and shiny.”

Favourite make-up brand: “Per­ri­cone MD. It’s nat­u­ral look­ing and skin­car­e­in­fused make-up.” Foun­da­tion and

con­cealer: “Too Faced con­cealer. I don’t wear foun­da­tion be­cause I find it suf­fo­cat­ing, es­pe­cially in Dubai’s weather.” Go-to lip colour: “I don’t wear

lip­stick be­cause I have very sen­si­tive lips, so I wear MAC li­pliner in Soar with

Vase­line.” Mas­cara: “Su­per Hero by In­no­va­tive Tech­nol­ogy – it re­ally makes me feel like a su­per hero!” Cur­rent

per­fume: Louis Vuit­ton Rose Des Vents.

Sig­na­ture make-up hack: “I am not very good at ap­ply­ing make-up. If I feel flat or feel I need a pick me up, I will wear mois­tur­is­ing or glow­ing masques be­fore ap­ply­ing the lit­tle make-up I do wear, or I’ll just wear mas­cara and con­cealer and

I feel so much bet­ter.”


Food in­tol­er­ances: “I am very sen­si­tive to salt, dairy, and gluten. I try to limit these but I can’t com­pletely avoid it all the time.”

Go-to snack: Gua­camole with corn chips. Work­out method:

“I have a trainer who I work with three to four times a week. I can’t seem to get my­self in the gym with­out them!”

Guilty food plea­sures: “French fries are my guilty food and my com­fort food.” Drink pref­er­ence: “Golden milk (co­conut milk and turmeric and cin­na­mon), a dou­ble espresso in the morn­ing, pep­per­mint tea in the af­ter­noon and, gin­ger tea in the evening.” Break­fast: “I do in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing so I never eat break­fast.” Food dislikes: “Chicken and lamb – or any other gamey meat.”


Hair sa­lon: “Be Bar – ev­ery­one there is trained by An­drea. It is the one place in the world where I can go and I know ev­ery­one will un­der­stand my hair and do what it takes to make it per­fect.” Hair sched­ule: “I get my hair­cut ev­ery time Ros­sano Fer­retti is in town.” Style se­cret: “I have not washed my own hair or blow-dried my own hair in over seven years. I have gone to Be Bar for the last four

years to get my hair done at least four times a week. That’s my se­cret!” Favourite prod­ucts: “Tex­tur­is­ing sprays.”

Off-duty hair look: “I am never off duty!”


Skin­care rou­tine: “I wear serums in the morn­ing and No­ble night cream at night. I also use sil­i­con patches (SIO) on my neck and chest at night.” Go-to prod­uct for skin

emer­gen­cies: “Bye Bye Blem­ish is my all time favourite.” Moisturiser:

“I don’t use any moisturiser. I use hyaluronic acid, vi­ta­min C, and anti-age­ing serums.” Cleansers:

“QV Soap-Free Fa­cial Wash and Bobby Brown Toner. I can­not live with­out these two prod­ucts.”

Flight es­sen­tials: SK-II Sheet Masks. Mir­a­cle prod­uct: “No­ble night cream and drink­ing lots of wa­ter. When I am de­hy­drated it re­ally shows up on my skin.” Sun­cream:

“I don’t wear sun­screen ev­ery day be­cause I find they con­tain too many chem­i­cals for me to wear for the five minute drive to work. I wear driv­ing gloves that are SPF50 and when I go to the beach or the pool I wear Neu­tro­gena oil-free SPF80 for the face and

SPF100 for the body.”


At­ti­tude to in­jecta­bles: “When some­thing is done to en­hance and not change the ap­pear­ance I am all for it.” Treat­ments: “I get tons of med­i­cal-grade fa­cials, like Ulther­apy, gly­colic peels, ra­dio fre­quency, laser resur­fac­ing, Vi­vace needling.”

Se­cret surg­eries: “I am not op­posed to surg­eries, but I have had none. Surg­eries seem like a re­ally big com­mit­ment and they re­quire a lot of down­time, some­thing which four kids and a busi­ness do not eas­ily al­low.” Most in­va­sive pro­ce­dure:

“Mi­cro-needling is the most dif­fi­cult of pro­ce­dures that I have un­der­gone so far.”
