What is your favourite male fragrance?
I always notice when a guy is wearing Chanel sport, I can spot it from a mile away!
What is the most common mistake a men makes with his grooming?
My pet hate is without doubt high maintenance hair. Either too much product or straightening are both a definate no no!
In what way could guys improve the way they look?
A good moisturiser and the right hair cut can both work wonders.
Which guys in the public eye do you think are well groomed?
Above all Matthew McConaughey catches my eye. It’s a combination of his glowing skin, golden tan and gorgeous natural looking hair, somehow he never looks like he’s tried to hard. Guys I guess that’s the key!
What’s one product you use that a guy could benefit from?
Borrow my Laura mercier lip silk. I’ve never found a product that gives you more kissable lips. The packaging isn’t too girly so you can get away with it!
