Where do you look to for inspiration for the Kardashians/Jenners?

“I get a lot of my inspiration from the girls! They tell me the look they want to achieve and ask me to work my magic.”

What are some of your favourite products to use on the girls?

“Cocoa Brown’s Golden Goddess Oil and the Bronzing Gel Matte (see below). I love the way the Golden Goddess gives that glow! It has such an affect on the camera lighting so works perfectly for shoots.”

Khloe, Joyce and Kenny don’t need no filter!

Best beauty tips?

“Minimalistic! It’s definitely becoming a trend to look like you are not wearing a huge amount of make-up. So I’d always say have a good lip and glow – they’ll help complete your look. I also love using Cocoa Brown’s Golden Goddess on the lip for that extra shine!”

How long does their glam take?

“It depends on the day, but generally 45 to 60 minutes.”

Your tips for snapping the perfect selfie?

“Lighting is key! And also lift the camera up to avoid the double chin!”
