The best ever beauty advice I was given by my grandmother. Always wash your face twice before bed. The first cleanse removes make up and dirt while the second gives a deeper cleanse.

  1. What makes modern Glamour different to Classic Glamour?
    Old School Glamour was all about having a signature look, Modern Glamour is more about having a boutique of looks, following trends then putting your own personal stamp on it.
  2. How does a woman achieve this?
    The first step is finding the foundation that’s perfect for you! Great skin is the perfect back drop for all make up. Then have fun with eyes and lips, experiment and practice are a winning combination.
  3. Are women born glamorous or can it be learnt?
    Glamour is created! That’s what I find so magical about make up you can make the you on the outside match the you on the inside.
  4. When did you first become aware of the notion of glamour?
    I’ve always been drawn to the world of glamour, as a baby, much to my mother’s embarrassment I would reach out of my pram to touch stranger’s fur coats. As I got a little older I would collect empty perfume bottles and the feeling and smell on the cosmetics floor always felt like home to me.
  5. What is the key ingredient for Glamour?
    Confidence!!! When making your own glamour statement own it, have fun and do it with confidence.
