What's your hero skincare product?

I started using the new Lancôme Energie de Vie liquid moisturiser recently and it's amazing! So light yet really hydrating, perfect for summertime.

What are your top make-up tips?

Start with good skincare and your make-up will go on so much better. It's all about the canvas, people! Invest in decent brushes, and when it comes to contour, don't forget to blend, blend, blend.

What is your favourite salon in Galway?

I really like Yourell's Salon on Eyre Street for hair and beauty.

What is your favourite Galway-made beauty product?

Kinvara Skincare do the most amazing facial serum, it has a gorgeous, citrusy smell and it's packed full of natural goodness.

Who is your Galway Girl beauty icon?

The Seoige sisters are both such natural, classic beauties, they have impeccable style.

What makes Galway girls different in their style?

Galway girls have a more natural approach to beauty and make-up. We're not afraid to have fun with fashion, but there's always a certain bohemian element to our style, which I love. We're creative types.
