Which bargain beauty buys are you loving at the moment?

Right now I love MUA lipsticks and GOSH lip liners - I'm obsessed with them. Also I can't forget the Manuka Doctor Replenishing Facial Oil, £19.99 for smooth skin.

Aside from a great facial oil, do you go in for any treatments or procedures when the summer hits and you want to wear less make-up?

The new 'boost' treatment from NaturaSKIN really rehydrates my skin, making it look much fresher. It uses loads of derma rollers and skin boosters; Dr Baxi is a true genius! I don't have fillers so this treatment is a perfect alternative.

Would you ever go for a Kim K vampire facial or a skin peel?

I'm not really into that it scares me too much! Luckily, I have quite nice skin naturally, so sticking to my daily regime will hopefully be enough. Alongside the odd facial here and there.

What do you use to remove your make-up at the end of the day?

In all honesty I love using Simple skin wipes as well as the Estée Lauder Gentle Eye Make-up Remover, £20. They're just both really effective and safe.

Talk us through your morning skincare routine? Are you a high/low maintenance girl?

Very low maintenance. I will wash my face with a good facial wash then use a good moisturiser. I'm loving the Manuka Doctor Replenishing Day Cream, £24.99 and I switch between that and Dior's Hydra Life Pro Youth even though it's pricey.

You always look flawless, Jess! Where do you get your beauty inspiration from?

Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a princess so I guess I can blame Disney and I wanted to make sure I always looked presentable. Instagram is great for looking at other girls' ideas of beauty and I'll always take inspiration from there.

I also love YouTube videos. Actually, I'll be incorporating beauty tutorials into my YouTube channel which is coming soon! Me and [make-up artist Krystal Dawn] do tutorials with each other and discover new shades that look good or new products we like.

Do you have any bad beauty habits?

The only bad beauty habit I have is not exfoliating enough! But when I do I use the Philips Essential Facial Cleansing Device, £150. It's great.
