What's your favourite thing about being a Powderpuff Girl?

That you get to work all ok the UK at all these incredible events, meet great people and have fun with the clients coming in to the Powder Room's as everyone is in good spritis and excited about whereever they are going on to. Also working with a variety of Powder Puff makeup artists and hair stylists is always great as you can learn so much from these ladies, they are very talented and its a pleasure to be part of the team.

What is your favourite product?

I just can't live without no. 16 face powder by Paul and Joe is my all time favourite blush, on so many skin tones it gives the affect of a natural peachy blush, im addicted!

What is your favourite era for Hair, Make up and fashion?

I'm torn on the first question! I adore the slique look of the 20's and it was when women were liberated and cut off there hair and wore what they wanted to cause shock and carry on the suffragettes work but then the hair and makeup for the 60's is my favourite too as I love the heavy 'doe' eye make up and the hairstyles were just iconic and works of art in themselves.

Where did you go to make up school?

Like Laura I studied at London Colllege of Fashion and I did a foundation degree in film and TV makeup and hair.

Tell us about your favourite place in London!

My favourite walk in London is from St pauls, across to the Tate, and walk along southbank, for me this is where london looks like the London you imagine as a child and I love it it always makes me proud to live here! And of course you have to stop off at borough market and eat as many free samples as you can! (avoid saturdays!)

Where is your favourite place to shop?

Now that would be telling! but if you prefer boutiquey shops Seven Dials is fab and for vintage spittalfields on a thursday is best or bricklane any day!
