SHEmazing! caught up with Emma and she let us into some of her top beauty secrets:

What is your best budget beauty buy?
My best budget beauty buy is my KIKO Smart Lipstick. KIKO is currently only available to Ireland online but at €3.90, these lipsticks are such amazing value for money and they have a huge shade selection.

What is your top make-up tip?
Don’t be afraid to experiment and make mistakes. Try out different products and shades, it’s the only way of finding out what looks good on you and what products work best for you. You also don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a great make up selection, most of my favourite products can be found in Boots and other pharmacies and they are budget friendly.

Most girls have much-loved lipstick – what’s yours?
My favourite lipstick has to be Russian Red by MAC, it’s my all time favourite red and the matte formula makes it really long lasting and easy to wear.

What was your very first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
My first perfume was probably DKNY Woman or Ralph by Ralph Lauren. I’m currently wearing Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess, my favourite Summer scent.

You’re only allowed use three make-up products for the rest of your life – what are they?
If I could only use three products for the rest of my life I would choose a foundation, a mascara and a lipstick (the lipstick could also be used as a cream blush on your cheeks, so you’ve got two for one there). Once again I’d have to pick Russian Red by MAC as the lipstick. I would also choose my current favourite foundation which is No7 Stay Perfect Superlight and Maybelline’s The Falsies mascara.
