"When I joined La Perla Beauty, I instantly fell in love with the brand's values. Who better than women to understand what women think, and what women need? That's why the message of 'by women, for women' is so important. To me, this also signifies sorority – we are better when we share and collaborate together. I do think it's good to have a man's point of view too though, sometimes, so we can share and understand each other's experiences.
"As each day goes by, sustainability plays a bigger role in my life. I am becoming more aware and try to make different changes, such as paying more attention to recycling, trying to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables, and cycling to work. I avoid fast fashion, and when it comes to beauty I look out for clean products. Small actions can make big changes. You don't have to be perfect to help!"
What is your favourite beauty product?
I love blush. I apply it with my fingertips on my cheekbones. My secret tip is to apply it to your nose, too: it gives a beautiful, sunkissed look, which is great for the warmer months!
What is the greatest advice you've been given?
Love yourself first. If you don't love yourself, how do you expect others to love you back?
What is a cause that you hold dear to your heart?
I would say equality of opportunity for all. No matter where you come from or your background, I think you should have the same chances and access to information as everyone else. Many people who have built and done great things didn't have privileged backgrounds. Everyone has the power to achieve great things if they're given the opportunity.
What is the first thing you do after coming home from the office?
Usually, I change into comfy clothes. Depending on the time, I'll go straight for a cup of tea, or a glass of red wine. I'll then watch something on Netflix. It's very cliché, but that's my favourite kind of night in!
What's on your playlist? What kind of music are you listening to?
I've just looked at my playlists, and my collection is so random, genre-wise – I have Phil Collins next to Dolly Parton and Christine and the Queens! I have different music for different daily scenarios. One day, I'm on my way to the office, the next I'm working from home or meeting up with friends and having dinner and drinks. So I'm never listening to the same type of music.
What can you not resist?
Chocolate. No hesitation. I know it's very obvious, but it's 100% true..
