On Her Newest Beauty Discoveries

'I feel like I'm constantly updating my beauty routines. I always fall in love with new products. I love Hourglass products, particularly the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder, £45, and I recently discovered Trinny London. I'm a big fan of the new Trinny London Lash2Brow, £28, a double-ended product that holds your mascara and brow gel in one. That's always in my bag at the moment. The Too Faced Soleil Bronzer, £27, is a must for me too.'

No.222 - Fine Lines & Wrinkles

'Contrary to popular belief, we don't have make-up artists on Made In Chelsea, we do everything ourselves. We might have a make-up artist if we're filming an advert or we're getting ready for a big event but that's it. The rest of the time it's all on us. You quickly learn that putting off your make-up until the taxi ride to filming is never a good idea, especially on a hangover. I wear my make-up a little differently for filming days too. I like to look a little tanned, so I always fake tan ahead of filming. I use Tan Luxe For Face, £28, most of the time and I always have my Too Faced Bronzer to hand.'

On Her Must-Have Pamper Evening Beauty Buy

'I have a renewed obsession with baths at the moment and I've taken to applying The Body Shop's Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, £18, each time I have one. It makes my skin feel so great, and it really adds to the occasion. I love those little eye masks from Patchology too. If I'm really pushing the boat out during a pamper evening I tweeze my eyebrows and give myself a pedicure as well.'

On Clean Kitchen's Origins Story

'It all started off in lockdown. My business partner Mikey kicked things off. He was big on YouTube and went on this fitness journey. He started eating vegan food and all of a sudden his entrepreneurial nature took over. He came up with the idea for Clean Kitchen and decided to start out by trying to get it on Deliveroo. He bought a little shack on Brighton's seafront too, which was an instant hit. I got to know him soon afterwards through a running club and he asked me if I wanted to come on board. He knew I was vegan and passionate about animals. I wasn't filming at the time so I agreed. I studied nutrition and biomedical science at King's College London so it all felt right. Since then we've taken on so much, taken so many risks, really believed in ourselves and the brand and it's all starting to pay off. We've just closed our first investment at £1.4 million, we have 32 employees, it's all steaming ahead. Camden was our first sit-down dining location. Opening that restaurant was a real milestone for us both.'

I like to have a signature scent

On Her Go-To Perfume

'I'm constantly wearing Le Labo Santal 33 Eau de Parfum at the moment, it's a real classic and I like to have a signature scent.'
