How I get ready: Daisy Lowe

I have a bath and a good scrub. As a model, my hair is torn apart by heat, hair tongs and backcombing. I’ve discovered Oribe shampoo, conditioner and hair treatment, which is divine. I have long hair with a fringe: I’d love a short bob, but I am not ready to cut it off yet. I had a year off from the fringe, which was weird for my eyebrows because they hadn’t seen the sun for 10 years. Eventually a hairdresser said, “Do you want to cut one in again?” I said, “Screw it, just do it.” And I thought, “Actually, I’m myself again.” So I think the fringe is here to stay.

I have three makeup brands that I couldn’t live without – Tom Ford, Nars and Laura Mercier. I like Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer for blemishes, and for around my nose and mouth – a makeup artist told me that having a paler colour around your nose is a good trick to make your whole complexion appear even.

I dab YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector on my nose and my chin – an alternative to powder. I like things dewy, but that just stops you being shiny. When I am out and about, I take Boots oil-absorbing sheets with me, which are tiny and fit neatly next to my wallet.

It probably takes me 15 minutes for hair and makeup, but it can take much longer to find an outfit. I love a jumpsuit – like the Topshop one that I wore to Glastonbury. Festival toilets? I’ve got it down: I put my bag around my neck, then unzip, and hold it all together with a bit of a balancing act and some interesting dance moves – although the Glastonbury jumpsuit had long sleeves, so I could use them as ties!

Daisy Lowe’s new film, Pressure, is in cinemas from 21 August.
