I’m pretty low-maintenance in term of beauty, but my nails are my style signature – I like them to look immaculate. A manicure makes me feel instantly groomed and I always wear a dark colour, such as OPI’s navy blue, which looks so glamorous. Light My Sapphire, £12.50; opiuk.com.

A good mascara is also a must. I find that Dior’s DiorShow Black Out mascara goes on really well. DiorShow Black Out mascara, £25.50; dior.com.

On my face I use Dr Sebagh Serum Repair, which is really light, and Trish McEvoy Even Skin Water Foundation, a real discovery – it feels like you are wearing nothing on your skin, which I really like. Dr Sebagh Serum Repair, £69 for 20ml; drsebagh.com.

I wear YSL Opium: I love the spicy fragrance and I don’t feel dressed without a spritz of it. YSL Opium, £45 for 30ml EDT; yslbeauty.co.uk.

I couldn’t manage without my trainer, Jason Progl – we do ballet, deep stretch and interval training and no two workouts are ever the same; I’ve broken my body so many times and he’s always put me back together. Jason Progl, 020-7627 2308.

I don’t have time for regular facials and all of that, but I really rely on Yusuf Gonen, who colours my hair. He comes to me, which suits me down to the ground. Yusuf Gonen, 07445-141 417.

I also really recommend Ruuby, a beauty concierge app that is brilliant for women (and men) on the go – you can book treatments at salons or arrange therapists to come to your home or office, and it’s so quick to use. ruuby.com.
