1. WHAT IS THE ONE SKINCARE PRODUCT YOU CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT AND WHY?

​I’m addicted to the Clarisonic Smart Profile Brush. That little gizmo gives my skin a deep cleanse, so that I’m  squeaky clean 🙂

2. WHAT IS THE ONE COSMETIC PRODUCT YOU ALWAYS  WEAR?

​That would have to be concealer as it freshens up my complexion so that I look  less tired. I use Benefit most days  but opt for Vichy Dermablend  when I really need help!

3. IF MONEY WAS NO OBJECT WHAT TREATMENT OR PRODUCT WOULD YOU LOVE TO TRY?

Anything that might actually rid my body of cellulite !

4. WHO STANDS OUT IN YOUR MIND AS A TRULY BEAUTIFUL PERSON?

I know it’s a cliche but beauty comes from within. Someone’s spirit is  most  visible through the eyes. My lovely pal Andrea Kissane gets my nomination as  she is a beauty, inside and out.

5.​ WHAT IS THE BEST MAKE UP TIP YOU EVER RECEIVED?

Blend, blend blend .. that’s Derrick Carberry’s mantra!

6. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR FASHION STYLE?​

Individual I hope!)

7. WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNER?

​I appreciate the work of Rei Kawakubo from Comme des Garcons as it’s  visually so strong and her approach is almost architectural. Always  strong, individual pieces that also  have a sense of ​whimsy.

8. WOULD YOU EVER CONSIDER GOING UNDER THE KNIFE?

I don’t think so.. they are so many other options. ​

9. WHAT BEAUTY FAUX PAS DRIVES YOU INSANE? For me it is badly applied patchy,      fake tan.

​Too much badly applied make up ​where a gal tips into drag queen territory.

10. DO YOU ALWAYS TAKE YOUR MAKE UP OFF BEFORE GOING TO BED?

Hate to admit this but .. no 🙁

11. IF YOU WERE TO CHOOSE JUST ONE PIECE TO BUY FOR WINTER 2017 WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

​So much temptation out there but I think I’ll opt for a statement tweed coat. Here are three suggestions at different price points.
