What's your everyday make-up look?

"I used to wear quite a lot of make-up, if you watch the show you will have seen it! But I don't wear as much now, just a bit of concealer. Sometimes I the MAC Studio Tech Foundation, £25, which is a cream. I used to use liquid foundation but it just slips off my skin.

"For blusher I like the Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush, £7.99, and I've got a NARS Multiple Stick, £30, at home which I love. And I curl my eyelashes every day because they're so straight, then add a tiny bit of mascara. Nowhere near as much as I did before, though! Right now I'm loving a mascara by Clarins, but I used to use one from The Body Shop."

How long does it take you to do your make-up in the morning?

"To do my look now, it takes about 10 minutes. In the past it would take about an hour! I used to be so high maintenance. I used to wear eyelashes when I went to work in a call centre. It's like I wanted to dip my face into a MAC advert! I've massively toned it down now."

What made you want to change?

"I watched the show back and thought: "What are you thinking?!" I used to slap the make-up on, I was at the NARS and MAC counters everyday! But because I have pale skin, when I put make-up on it really shows and it was just too much. So I've really cut down since."

Do you still like to have dramatic make-up on shoots?

"Yes I do, but I also like the natural, glowy looks with lots of highlighter. I do love a good smoky eye though."

Eyes or lips?

"In the past I would have said both, but now I like to play up my lips. On one shoot they gave me a bright purple lip and it really suited me, so I like to wear that on a night out. And I do apply eyelashes when I go out, even if I don't use anything else on my eyes. Not big thick ones though!"

Top three products you couldn't live without?

"My Revlon Eyelash Curlers, £5.99, I'm a big fan of those! Also my Benefit Boi-ing Concealer, £17.50, goes everywhere with me. I like to use it on days when I'm not wearing too much make-up. And I couldn't be without my Clarins mascara."

Any tips for taking care of blonde hair?

"I don't have it bleached anymore, but when I did I just washed it as normal without using anything special on it. That's probably why it got so damaged and I had to dye it. I just use whichever shampoo is in the bathroom!"
