During the day, I wear no make-up at all. For a night out, I line my eyes with black kohl. I also love a smoky-eyed look with Yves Saint Laurent’s brown eye pencil. Plus, I curl my eyelashes and use lots of YSL mascara. For lips, I prefer to use a pale pink lipstick.

Under all the junk (my wallet, credit card and odd papers) you’ll find my favourite “Cherish” MAC lipstick, the MAC blush “Improper
Copper” and a Chanel kohl pencil in black. I can’t live without my kohl pencil.
SCENT OF A WOMAN
I love Jean Paul Gaultier. For special occasions, I apply Un Jardin en Méditerranée by Hermès.
I think Scarlett Johansson is beautiful. I like her face, her body and her hair. I also love Julia Roberts for always looking fresh.
I love oiling my hair with a mix of almond, castor, coconut and olive oils. I do this once a month. I use a Kérastase shampoo specifically for dry hair, and follow it with a blow-dry.
I use a Lancôme face wash. I try to avoid creams because of their chemical content. In cold weather, I use Clarins’ HydraQuench Rich Cream, and on a beach I use a Clarins sunscreen. I don’t believe in facials.
I’m a vegetarian and believe in eating lots of green vegetables, like spinach, fenugreek and broccoli. I eat healthy meals with lots of whole grains and don’t cut down on carbs. I eat every 2-3 hours. At night, I usually have dal, vegetables, curd and roti or brown rice. I try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of boiled water every day.
I do ashtanga and power yoga for an hour every day.
