Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch up
Shiseido Benefiance Revitalizing cream
Organic Coconut Body oil
Chi Argan Oil Plus Moringa oil
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire cleanser

My travel beauty routine consists of …
During a long flight I clean my face with facial wipes and put some Shiseido cream on. After I put coconut oil in my hair and tie my hair into a tight bun, so it won’t dry out from the air conditioning in the plane.

The best beauty secret I’ve learnt backstage is …
Every now and then put a lot of coconut oil in your hair, let it stay in your hair for a day and wash it out the day after without using shampoo. This works really good for curly hair.

My beauty icon is …

My biggest beauty indulgence is …
