"I don't mind a bikini bottom. My husband likes lines on the bum — men like white bums. . . . I try not to have a white boob." Picture: Flynet
“I always use (US brand) Dr. Lancer skin products. The body cream I use is a really simple, inexpensive body moisturiser by Weleda. It’s really, really thick, and I slather it on.”
“I heat up my mascara wand for a couple of seconds with a hairdryer. It really works, just make sure you don’t heat it too much and singe your eyelids."
"I can never stress enough to my friends that they must do as I do ... hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink lots of water, get enough sleep, exercise, and eat a clean healthy diet, whenever possible."
"You should always curl your lashes. I usually don't use mascara that much unless I'm looking really tired and puffy-eyed. I just curl my eyelashes and brush a little mascara on the tips."
“Don’t wash your face in the morning. At night your skin is rebuilding oils that you need to keep your skin young. In the morning you can splash it with water but you don’t want to get rid of that.”
"A good eye cream is really important when you are travelling, busy and stressed—that's when the dark puffy circles can get you."
"I do wear make-up more frequently than my friends and family, but my preparation isn't any different. I just wash, moisturise, put on base, put on my eyes, put on some blusher and I'm good to go."
"I'm really bad about my hair. I do almost nothing. When I'm not working, I use the Frédéric Fekkai Glossing line and just pull it back. The only thing I'm diligent about is skin care."
“I put a little gold eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eyes, it’s more subtle than white but it makes you look more awake.”
"I moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. No matter how late it is, when I get home, I take the time to clean and moisturise my face. I'm a big believer in that if you focus on good skincare, you really won't need a lot of make-up."
"(Sunbathing) It is the worst thing in terms of ageing, so I wear a lot of sunscreen, and I never go in the sun."
"I love perfume. I have 10 L'Artisan Parfumeur scents. Right now I'm super into the amber, but they also had a mandarin that's absolutely amazing."
"My husband loves me in red lipstick, and I still just want to impress him."
"I use omega-3 oil. I love light oil on my skin. It's one of my favorite feelings in the world."
"After applying foundation and a little blush, dust your face with translucent powder, then mist skin with a rosewater spray and lay a Kleenex over for a second. It makes your face seem flawless in a way that looks as if you aren't wearing any make-up."
"I dust my cheeks and eyelids with bronzing powder for a natural glow."
"A shimmery bronzer is the perfect way to look alive. If you don't want to wear make-up, mix some with moisturiser. You'll look pretty but not made-up."
"Every woman—even women of colour—should wear a blush bronzer. Not a self-tanner bronzer!"
“When I wash and dry my hair I have naturally wavy hair so I’ll dry it where it’s still a little bit wet and then I’ll put it just in a ballerina bun and then when I take it out it has a really nice natural deep wave… If you have any sort of natural bend in your hair, if you let it dry in that bun… make sure the bun is really tight then it will come out with really pretty waves.”
"To make lips look naturally pink, I put on red lipstick, wipe it off, and then apply clear gloss."
