In an exclusive interview, we spoke to the influencer about her go-to products and biggest beauty blunders.    

On what made her want to team up with Neutrogena…
“I think they’re a really reputable company and a household name that I can remember since practically forever. Working with them was an easy decision and I was thrilled with the opportunity to do so.”

On her biggest beauty regret…
“Oh man… probably when I was a teenager and decided to give myself layers – I gave myself a mullet.”

On her time-saving beauty tricks…
“My beauty regimen is generally always time saving! I try not to wear makeup most days and when I do, I keep it minimal - that’s definitely a big time-saver. And it makes my skin feel so much nicer throughout the day.”

On the advice she’d tell her 15-year-old self…
“Keep it natural and don’t overdo it. Your natural self is always your best looking and feeling self.”

On her greatest beauty discovery…
“Going to have to say the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel! It’s so different to any moisturiser I’ve used before. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid and keeps my skin moisturised all day. It also sinks into the skin really beautifully and feels weightless - like water.” 

One her number one guilty pleasure…
“I’m a binge chocolate eater. I can’t help it. I have a problem.” 

On the three products we’d find in her cosmetic bag right now…
“My Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel because it keeps my skin moisturised and dewy all day, my By Terry Baume de Rose and water! I always have a bottle of water with me (I won’t buy a handbag unless I can fit a bottle in it). It’s the number one most underrated beauty hack. Hydrated skin is healthy skin."
