What three products are always in your handbag?
Rosebud lip balm, lipstick (Yves Saint Laurent, Clinique or Mac), and a little travel pot for my face cream and hand cream.
What’s your latest beauty discovery?
Face oils. Kama is great, and I use it before I use moisturiser. Where I live, Madrid, tends to be very dry.
What’s your favourite hair product?
Moroccan hair oil.
What’s your favourite city?
New York is still my favourite city in the world. I know it well. I love the energy. I love the mix. I love the fact that it’s very impersonal but at the same time can be very personal.
I love all its contrasts.
How do you stay fit?
I follow the Tracy Anderson method. I do yoga, run and sometimes work out with a trainer. I know this sounds like a lot, but I try to work out three times a week. I also love dancing.
Success smells like...
Maybe Carolina Herrera 212, because it was my first creation and it’s still very successful.
