Deep bronze, glow glow glow, eyes framed and plump rose-toned or crimson lips. Think Iman, Lauren Hutton, Sophia Lauren. But, as always, before makeup, I like to talk “skin”. A lot of sun and salt water can leave the skin dry and sensitive, so I like to use non-abrasive exfoliants and creamy cleansers. I can’t stress enough the importance of cleansing the face, in the summer especially. With sunscreens, sweat, pollution, chlorine pools and salt water from the ocean, the face and the pores in particular can take a beating. Tonics, post-cleanse, also help rejuvenate and refresh the skin as well as give an extra protective barrier.

For moisture, I’ve been using only a face oil this week after spending a lot of time in the sun and pool, Costa Brazil’s Oleo Para A Face is my favourite. Not only is it free of toxins, light and highly absorbent, it’s great for the environment, created out of love and respect for the Amazon.

Tip: Mix a little pigment with the oil to create an all over glow.

Non-toxic mineral pigments are best. Roen Beauty makes gorgeous metallics in both warm and cool tones that work for all skin tones and ‘Summer Disco’ is a current favourite. I also love to mix and couple of drops of face oil with the 111SKIN Rose Gold Booster, this works for all skin tones.

For Complexion

Try thinning your foundation with your moisturiser and only using to soften areas of redness, dark spots, or to cover blemishes. This keeps the texture of the skin light and it will have a more believable glow. After evening out the complexion, I love to build the warmth of the skin with a bronzer. Some of my favourites are the Westman Atelier’s Beauty Butter, plant butters allow this powder bronzer to melt into the skin, RMS Beauty and Kjaer Weis also make beautiful summer glow products. For an extra summer boost, swipe a touch of fuscia, 70’s red-orange, or baby pink high on the cheeks to mimic that extra sun-kissed feel.

FOR THE EYES

I love subtle framing with washes of earth-tones metallics that meld into the skin and enhance the all over glow. Westman Atelier’s Eye Pods make colours for both day and night in little pots. Easy to swipe on lids and in the lower lash line. My fingertips are the preferred method of application. Just use a cotton swab to clean up any mess. But fingertips are great for getting into the skin and lash line to help create more naturally sultry eyes. Try RMS Beauty Eye Polish in Myth and Seduce and Roen Beauty new 11:11 eye palette. And if you like a little color play, change the eyes to metallic aqua blue. Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres in ‘Quiet Revolution’ or NARS PowderChrome Loose Eye Pigment in Islamorada are great on warm summer skin.

FOR LIPS

I like to keep them luscious and low maintenance. I’ve been obsessing over La Bouche Rouge Paris and their “ No More Plastics in Beauty” mantra for a while. A few favourites to try are 70’s America (matte tomato red), Rosewood and Peach Balm. The cases are refillable, eco-friendly, and free of PP and POMP. You can even customise your own color. Tres chic!

Tip: apply to the centre of the lips using your fingers and soften the edges with a tissue to give a stained look.

Long afternoon naps in the grass, night swims, waking with the morning symphony of birds, ocean blue, shiny sun-kissed skin, carefree hair, tomato red toes, leather sandals, farmers markets, linen sheets, fireflies…these are a few of my favourite things.

The experience and nostalgia of which carries me through until summer arrives once again.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
