Hype Hair: What are your must-have beauty products?
FE: At the moment, I love Bobbi Brown Rose Brown lip pencil! I love the Clarins skin care range which is great for hydrating the skin. The Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Cream is amazing!

HH: What’s the best advice you can give our readers on makeup?
FE: Always enhance your natural features rather than disguise them. Try not to pile it on. Heavy makeup isn’t great for your skin and can sometimes age you. Keep it natural and always remember to blend!! Blending is everything!

HH: What are the must-haves you carry around in your bag?
FE: I always have a lip gloss in my bag. My phone, gum and headphones!


HH: Any budget-friendly hair and beauty tips?
FE: You can find great products at great value in a drug store—so shop around! Coconut oil is great for hair and skin and lasts a long time—that’s a good investment.

HH: What are your favorite cosmetics to play with?
FE: Lip glosses and lip pencils are my favorites. I’ve recently started experimenting with eyelash strips too, and I love them!

HH: What’s the source of your inspiration?
FE: Life. Everything around me inspires me. People’s experiences, stories and perceptions keep me inspired.

HH: What do we have to look forward to next from you and your great voice?
FE: I’ve been busy in the studio working on new material that I’m very excited to get out there, so keep your eyes and ears open!
