Naturally, we wanted to take a peek inside her make-up bag and learn a few of her beauty secrets…

What’s keeping you busy right now?
Since FHM’s announcement my life has been a whirlwind of press and PR interviews, as always my main focus is my modeling agency, Alushi Management, and the models I represent.

What’s the one cosmetic item or styling tool you simply couldn’t live without?
I never go anywhere without my Dermalogica Age Smart Lip Renewal Complex so my lips are always ready for kisses from my hubby.

If we were to turf out your make-up bag, what would we find in there?
I like to keep things simple, I use MAC Studio Fix foundation, as it gives me sufficient coverage without looking to heavy. I also like Covergirl LashBlast Volume Blasting mascara, (you can only purchase this in the USA, so I try to buy in bulk when I am there),  MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Eversun and MAC Dazzleglass lip gloss in any shade.

In regards to facial skincare, what are your favourite products?
I use Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer as well as Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster and Dermalogica Total Eye Care with SPF 15. During the day I use Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery with SPF 30 and at night I use Dermalogica Active Moist.

And how’d you take care of that bod?
I just use normal Lux soap and my The Body Shop scrubbing gloves. I also never forget to moisturize every day.

What products do you use on your hair?
Kerastase Resistance Bain De Force which is fortifying shampoo for weakened hair and Kerastase Resistance Bain De Force Volumactive masque to condition. It helps create volume from root to tip and keeps your hair soft and light.

Which perfumes do you wear?
Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle, Narciso Rodriguez for her and Mont Blanc Femme Individuelle.

Mont Blanc Femme Individuelle; a sensual blend of lotus, vanilla, rose, amber and musk.

What nail polish colours are you rocking at the mo?
I am a big fan of French manicures all year round.

Who’s in your little black book of beauty?
For all my facials, manicures and pedicures I go to Sorbet. For my hair, I go to hair Hair Bar on Grant Avenue in Norwood.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received or have to give?
Keep your skin care routine simple but constant and never sleep with make-up on.

If you enjoy reading about the goodies the celebs use, perhaps you’ll want to take a peek inside Jeannie D’s make-up bag too.
