‘In a so­ci­ety that tries to po­lice who gets to feel con­fi­dent, ac­cept­ing your­self as you are is such an im­por­tant part of be­ing happy,’ says Leomie, who has the acro­nym LIFL – which stands for Life Is For Liv­ing – tat­tooed on her. ‘Every day should be a day of progress, pos­i­tiv­ity and gen­er­ally not wast­ing time be­cause I am lucky to be in my po­si­tion, so it’s a re­minder of that.’

al­ways hy­drate Some girls like to go matte and full cov­er­age, but for Leomie, feel­ing con­fi­dent is all about ra­di­ant skin: ‘I love my skin to look dewy and hy­drated so my favourite prod­ucts are the 111SKIN Hy­dro­lat Anti Blem­ish Tonic [1], £50, that I use every other day, Kiehl’s Glow For­mula Skin Hy­dra­tor [4], £30, and Fenty Beauty’s Body Lava [2], £46.’ Top tip ‘Buff Body Lava on to col­lar­bones and down shins for a stream­lin­ing ef­fect.’

get lashed For­get heavy base make-up, Leomie is all about some lash love. ‘ When I want to feel more em­pow­ered, I en­joy hav­ing nat­u­ral-look­ing lash ex­ten­sions by Lon­don’s Lands Lashes,’ she says, and al­ways goes for an eye­liner wing to go with it. ‘I use Revlon Colorstay Skinny Eye­liner [5], £7.99, for that,’ she says.

good hair day When her hair isn’t play­ing ball, Leomie doesn’t fret. ‘I just use L’oréal El­vive Ex­tra­or­di­nary Hair Oil [3], £9.99, be­cause it’s su­per-hy­drat­ing and smooths my hair’s edges.’ You can use it pre-sham­poo, on damp hair be­fore styling or as a fin­ish­ing touch every day.

spritz away There’s noth­ing like a good scent to up­lift the senses, and Leomie’s favourite is Miss Dior EDP [6], £75 for 50ml. ‘It’s fresh yet punchy and peo­ple al­ways com­pli­ment me when I wear it!’
