FEMALE: Did you pick up any beauty tips from the showbiz experts in LA?

Amelia: “Definitely! In LA, the trend is very minimal foundation and to let your natural skin show through as much as possible, so skincare is very important. I learned to always moisturise and prime before makeup and drink a lot of water. Of course we all have bad skin days so to get that healthy glow, mix your foundation with a noncomedogenic face oil to get a glorious finish.”

F: What’s your favourite red-carpet look?

A: “I just did a smoky gold eye look that I really loved! Usually, I like to stick to warm-toned colours as they look better with my skin tone.”

F: In 10 minutes, how would you switch up your look from day to night?

A: “During the day, I keep my eyes light and my lips nude so I’d either swap the nude lip for a red or up my eyeshadow game and go for a simple smoky eye.”

F: You’ve got fabulous, glossy long hair! How do you maintain it?

A: “Thank you! I’m very lucky to have a really amazing hairstylist. Saki at 76Style Lot 10 has helped me so much to achieve healthy hair. I used to dye my hair black a lot and it gets damaged by all the straightening and curling I do for work, so I’ve learnt to leave it alone when I have a day off and I don’t dye it anymore. As and when I can, I pop over to 76Style for the Ultrasonic Platinum treatment which I swear by!”

F: If you can relate yourself to any TV character, who would it be and why?

A: “I’d like to think Olivia Pope from Scandal because she’s a #boss and she doesn’t take anyone’s sh*t!”
