THERE ARE FIVE AWESOME BEAUTY PRODUCTS SHE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT. “Papaw is a favourite, which I’m planning on stocking up on while I’m here. I’m an avid fan of moisturising, too. I’m addicted to it, actually. I love Weleda Baby Calendula Face Cream, which I slather onto my face morning, noon, and night. (I love) Chanel black liquid liner, and for the lips I like to mix things together. M.A.C has this one lipstick called Vegas Volt, which I mix with a light concealer to create a salmon colour. I want my lips to look like salmon. (With nails,) Essie is a good brand, or OPI. I love coral. I’m sort of addicted to coral.”
SHE THINKS BLOGGERS ARE PRETTY ACE. “I do think the rise of the blogger is such an interesting phase in our modern times because I grew up in the middle of the countryside and would’ve loved to be involved in fashion. I think it’s brilliant young women get to feel a part of the fashion industry.”
