“It’s essential, it’s every day, day or night, and easy to use.”

Of the 18-piece range, Amra is most proud of the lip set. ‘You need all three (lip pencil, lipstick and gloss), they complement each other. I’m a big girl with nude lips, it’s my favorite part of my makeup routine because it completes the whole makeup look.’

Her best beauty tip? Lip hydration and exfoliation is crucial!

‘If you apply lipstick or lip gloss to dry, chapped lips, it won’t look good and the product won’t last long; you might crack and lips will look dried out.

“Apply a lip balm 20 minutes beforehand and exfoliate the lips before applying lipstick.”
