Music- Music means a lot to me, there’s ALWAYS music playing in our house. Music inspires me and motivates me; there’s nothing better than putting on a good tune and dancing like a lunatic!!

Makeup-makeup is my life! I live and breathe it! I love the way make up can make you feel! Make up is all about enhancing your natural beauty and feeling beautiful is a wonderful thing.

Food – Gawddd I love good food! I could list a lot of items-but I def couldn’t like without cheese!! Dorstone Goats cheese from Neals Yard cheese shop is my fave!

Starbucks- Oh my! I am a Starbucks addict-1 a day keeps the doctor away hey?!! Grande skinny caramel macchiato extra hot is the ONE!!

My first Benefit product was…

My first Benefit product was High Beam. My best friend Rosie introduced it to me about 12 years ago! Who would have known then what job I’d be doing now hey!?

My favorite place in London…

My fave place in London is Bushy park. Theo and I used to go on picnic dates there when we first met. Its such a gorgeous park, I go there nearly every day to walk Snoopy. Ooo and Usain Bolt trains there! #justsaying

The color wheel: My favourite color is…

My fave colour is green, the colour of my eyes.

My makeup trend I regret the most from when I was younger is…

I don’t regret any make up trends as makeup is an expression of you at that time. One of the trends I remember is Heather shimmer lipstick!! Oohh yes! If you were a teenager in the 90s I guarantee this was a staple in your make up bag! Why oh why I’ll never know!!

If I could live any other place I’d live in…

Australia! Its the most magical country.

My favorite Benefit moment….

There’s just so many! I think the moment that made me think-wow, this is the best job in the world, was when I did Chaka khans make up at LoveBox last year! What a legend!

Thanks for sharing Lisa! A true Benebabe!
