What is your fave make-up look for winter?

"I love a smoky eye, but I also like it when my skin looks dewy. I don't wear a lot of make-up because I think it's nice to look more natural."

How does your make-up bag change from summer to winter?

"In the summer I hardly wear any make-up at all, it can look really heavy on my skin. In the winter I might wear a tinted moisturiser because my skin can sometimes be dry, but in the summer there is less need because I hopefully have a tan!"

Do you switch up your skincare routine regularly?

"Not really, I like to find products that work and stick to them. I do use different products when my skin changes though. I definitely try and use more moisturising products where I can in the winter as my skin dries out more. My skin can also get a bit more sensitive and spot-prone, so I tend to apply my Witch Blemish Stick, £2.70, regularly."

Do you find your skin is worse in winter compared to the rest of the year?

"Yes, I think a lack of sun definitely has an effect on my skin so I'd say it is better in the summer."

What are your winter beauty essentials?

"I love a highlighter, I like my Temple Spa Glint Concealer, £25, and I use Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser, £34."

How long does it take you to get ready for a party?

"I can get ready super-fast! I can do my outfit, hair and make-up in about 25 minutes. I then spend the rest of the time helping my friends get ready..."

Any tips for surviving the party season?

"I think finding products that work for you is key. I also don't smoke and rarely drink, which must have an impact on my skin."

What is your go-to party make-up look?

"I always wear a gel flicked eyeliner using either Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eyeliner, £18, or Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eyeliner, £17, as I think it suits my face. I also like a subtle red or pink lip, but I think you have to do either eyes or lips, not both."

Any tips for looking good the morning after a big night?

"I always take my make-up off the night before, it doesn't matter how late it is. I keep Witch Cleansing & Toning Wipes, £2.99, by my bed if I'm feeling lazy, and I drink a glass of water before bed."

What are your plans for Christmas this year?

"I'm going to Australia with my mum and sister. We're really looking forward to it!"

Are you planning on making any New Year's resolutions?

"I don't tend to make them. I think if I need to change something, I can do it at any time, I don't just need to restrict it to the new year!"

What is your favourite festive food?

"I love mince pies. Christmas is a weird one for me because I'm a vegetarian, so it's celebrated in a slightly different way!"
