Instant makeover – what’s your favourite way to look better fast?
I never go a day without wearing my Bare Minerals Foundation. It looks so natural everyone thinks you are naturally flawless, and a hint of blusher makes such a difference.

Quick-fix detox tips?
– Start the day by body brushing (always towards the heart) to stimulate your circulation.
– Drink 1.5–2 litres of water per day: fill a 2-litre bottle of water in the morning and sip this throughout the day to ensure you are getting enough. It’s probably a shock how little water you actually drink!
– Swap your regular tea or coffee for green tea.
– Eat your five portions of fresh fruit and vegetables a day.
