I come from a family of women who are all into presentation. My mother was very glamorous, wearing sunglasses even when she wasn`t meant to and a spritz of Chanel No 5. I thought she looked like Elizabeth Taylor. She was always more into fashion than beauty, so it was my cousins who gave me guidance on make-up from the age of nine.
They all had their icons - I chose Madonna. I`d try to copy her look from the Vogue video, carefully drawing on a beauty spot. One cousin taught me how to do the lipstick: `apply, blot and re-apply` was her method, and she`d always go a little over her lipline to make her pout look bigger.
When I was old enough to wear lipstick I followed her advice, always opting for a red shade. I passed the tip on to my mother, who liked a hot-pink lip - it looked lovely with all her leopard-print and sequinned dresses. Now she comes to me with make-up questions, and I look to her for style tips
