Do you have a beauty regime? I have always taken the best care of my skin and used what I stock in the salon and recommend to clients. The Eve Taylor range is aromatherapy based skincare that gives amazing results. My regime is fairly complex so bear with me…In the morning I use my favourite cleansing wash, (Eve Taylor Purifying Wash) which just foams up, making it perfect for use in the shower. I then apply a concentrated aromatherapy facial oil to my face, neck and décolletage area, followed by a refreshing spritz toner all over. I follow this with a pure hyaluronic acid serum which drenches my skin in moisture and plumps out any early signs of ageing, an eye cream (Eve Taylor Eye Complex), facial moisturiser, lip balm and finally an SPF 15 protection cream. In the evening I use an eye makeup remover, then cleanse off my makeup with a pre cleansing oil (Eve Taylor Clear Cleanse). I then follow on with the facial cleanse and the rest of my morning routine.

Do you have a particular product you couldn’t live without? This is a hard one. I love all of them! If I had to pick, my go-to product would be the Eve Taylor C+ Bright Moisturiser as this does so many important things. It can be used as a moisturiser on its own so I always pack this for my holidays. It protects my skin from the sun and brightens my skin, giving it a lovely glow. It also works as a great base for makeup so I always finish with this for my brides when doing bridal makeup.

What’s your ultimate pampering treat? I love facials…could you guess? For me, it’s the ultimate in relaxation, you can just drift away. Having a facial massage and working on all those pressure points just releases any tension in the mind.

Who’s your style icon? Jennifer Aniston. She is naturally very beautiful, with a great outlook on skincare and ageing. She always looks fantastic and I just love her dress sense. She’s effortlessly chic.
