As the Laser Therapist of Evolve Medical UK, my job allows me to develop my knowledge of the beauty, cosmetic and skin care industry. I love applying my knowledge and expertise in my role at Evolve Medical and providing treatments and products to not only transform how our clients look but also feel.
What four cosmetic brands are you most likely to find in your make-up bag?
The four brands that you can always find in my make-up bag would definitely have to be Dreamweave, Yves Saint Laurent, Estée Lauder and Younique. I cannot live without my Dreamweave Original Lash Extension Magnet Mascara, it doesn’t budge until removed and keeps your lashes looking luscious all day and night! I am a huge fan of Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat and Estée Lauder foundation, they really keep your skin glowing and looking flawless! I find the Younique lip stain collection is perfect for adding the finishing touch to my make-up. The lip stains come in a range of shades and can either build up a light or intense colour, making the range perfect for any occasion.
Which cosmetics are essential in your everyday use?
I couldn’t live without HelioCare Gelcream Light. This really is a miracle cream with so many benefits! It is perfect for every skin type, great for everyday use and isn’t oily like most SPF moisturisers. Not only does it protect you from everyday UV damage and prevent ageing, it also hides blemishes as well as giving you a bronzed look meaning it can be used as a base for your foundation, or even replace it!
I love all of our treatments so this is a difficult question to answer! Laser hair removal is an obvious favourite, as it means you never have to worry about hair removal ever again! A treatment that people might not be as familiar with is the CACI jaw lift. CACI treatments are non-surgical and can be carried out on a number or areas. The treatment really firms up your jawline and keeps you looking contoured, even when not wearing any make-up. I would also highly recommend the Microdermabrasion as this keeps your skin feeling fresh and looking rejuvenated.
How many of the treatments that you offer have you taken advantage of yourself?
The beauty of my job is seeing the amazing results that our treatments give! So far I’ve taken advantage of Botox anti wrinkle injections, fillers, The Perfect Peel treatment, Microdermabrasion, LVL lashes, HD brows, and laser hair removal.
If you could have your make-up done by any celebrity make-up artist in the world, who would you pick and why?
There are so many incredible make-up artists in the industry to choose from. I would have to say Charlotte Tilbury, I absolutely love her use of highlighter and the dramatic look she creates with smoky eyes.
Are there any celebrities you draw make up inspiration from?
In theme with the smoky eyes, I’d have to say Cheryl Cole. She always looks stunning with a smoky eyes and natural lip gloss combination. She’s someone who looks beautiful with both heavy or more natural make up, so she’s great to draw inspiration for both day or night look.
Do you read any beauty blogs or vlogs and if so, which ones?
I’ve often used Lisa Elridge’s advice when doing make overs. She has a talent for achieving a dramatic cat walk look and I enjoy following her blogs.
What is your daily make-up routine?
A good hydrated base followed by b5 gel, HelioCare Gelcream Light, foundation when needed, concealer, bronzer, eyeliner, mascara and eyebrow powder.
What is your daily skincare routine?
A good daily skincare routine is important to make sure you’re always looking fresh faced. I start with a Neo Strata clarifying wash, then Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, followed by HelioCare Gelcream Light and I finish the day with Obagi Elastiderm Night Eye Cream.
With upcoming holidays such as Halloween, Christmas and New Years Eve on the horizon, how do you plan on looking your best?
To get myself feeling prepared and pampered for the party season I’ll definitely have a few of The Perfect Peel treatments to get rid of any dead skin, some Botox and of course fake tan.
Lastly, what is the most embarrassing beauty failure/problem that has ever happened to you in your life?
I have to admit I’ve been seen with streaky fake tan and slightly orange hands and feet!
