* How would you describe your daily skin care routine?

Very, very simple. I make sure I take all foundation off – TV make up needs serious removal! And I let my skin just ‘breath’ on its own for awhile before I slather it with a great series of cosmeceuticals – my faves are from Zecca Cosmetics in Sydney.

* Do you have any beauty secrets or rituals you swear by?I love light and laser treatments. Nothing invasive, but I do make sure I drinks lots of water and keep my skin hydrated. My favoured facials are from Zecca, Next of Skin and Salon X in Paddington. 

* What is the most important aspect to you of looking after your skin?

I always protect it from the sun. The damage was done in my youth but I have been able to get it back to a happy state thanks to a series of peels  light, lunchtime laser treatments and active cosmetics. 

* Do you have any products you simply couldn’t live without?

I love SK11 face and eyes masks, a Clarisonic cleanser, Rationale and Zecca products, and La Prairie for sheer indulgent and effective skin care. 

*What was your last make-up purchase?

A red lippie. ‘Rush’ by Natio from Priceline: great red, great price! Plus, I just bought MAC and Chanel foundations. 

*How would you describe your ‘everyday’ make-up style?

Lippie. A defined eyebrow and sheer foundation and a quick spray of ModelCo’s Tan In A Can!

* Do you have any tips to stay looking radiant while keeping up a busy schedule?

Keep applying the lippie and go light on foundation during the day otherwise it does tend to soak into fine lines!
