How would you describe your style and who are your style icons?

I think my style would be described as slightly androgynous with hints of girlishness. I like greys and blacks and every once in a while I will add a pop of colour. But I always make sure I am put together. Everything is thought through, no matter how casual I am.

I don't really have style icons but I admire Clémence Poésy's style.

What's in your everyday make-up bag?

I use a Maybelline BB cream
bareMinerals concealer
Boots No7. peach chubby stick
Tinted Veil by bareMinerals
bareMinerals Mascara
MAC eyebrow mascara
bareMinerals Black or Brown eyeliner.
Kiko Lip Stain

What is your beauty routine like?

Every night I cleanse my face with Coconut Oil and take it off with a warm, wet cloth.

I then apply a serum. A Night Cream or Facial Oil depending on how my face feels.

In the morning I rinse my face with water and add a facial oil or moisturiser with SPF and an eye cream.

If you could makeover a celebrity, who would it be and what look would you give them?

I would love to make over Angelina Jolie, purely because her features are so amazing and over the top!

I would love to make her look soft and girly!

Any tips for someone wanting to mix up their look?

Don't be afraid to try something new. There's no rules. If you are scared to try something, grab a colour you love in eyeshadow and give it a go. Use it in the same way you use your other eyeshadows, just this time its with colour!

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I do a lot of painting (this is my background as I was a trained watercolorist and specialise in acrylics as well). I also like to sew and make gifts for friends, though I'm not brilliant at it.

I also make flower headpieces for brides and special occasions! I love big, bold hair bands.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I have two basset hounds a son and a husband ! I really like to laugh and giggle and spend most of my time doing that!

I eat grapes...a lot.
I am obsessed with listening to music and I get real satisfaction from using a squeegee on the shower glass after I shower! I don't know why, but it really does make me happy!
