We love absolutely everything about vlogger, Maddie Bruce. It might be her honest advice, amazing makeup tutorials or just the fact that she travels around the world… #casj. So we caught up with her over brunch (hazelnut waffles, berries and cream, to be precise) to find out more…
What’s your favourite perfume?
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is my signature perfume. I love it because it’s floral, strong and lasts all day. The bottle is so cute, too.
What’s your favourite smell?
Fresh linen – it reminds me of a lazy morning.
If you had to steal a celeb’s style, whose would it be?
Alexa Chung’s, for sure.
What are your everyday make-up essentials?
Nude lipstick, mascara and a light/neutral eyeshadow – I rarely leave the house without them.
What do you love most about perfume?
Even on those summer days when the weather isn’t hot, spraying a flowery perfume can transport you to a tropical location.
What advice would you give now for getting summer-ready?
I’m obsessed with fake tan, so I’d recommend using it regularly before summer starts. Look at lightening your hair colour for a beachy look, too, and start shopping for swimsuits and bikinis. They’ll be coming off the shelves quickly!
How do you stay fresh while travelling?
I always have a deodorant and lip balm in my hand luggage. I’ve also just discovered facial mists, which are great for keeping you hydrated on a plane. They’re my new favourite thing!
Where are you going on holiday this summer?
Amsterdam, Malta and the USA! I’m going to Amsterdam with friends, which I’m really excited about. Malta will be for the Isle of MTV festival, where Wiz Khalifa and Jess Glynne are performing, so I can’t wait! In the USA, I’m travelling from San Francisco to LA. So be sure to keep an eye out for my updates on YouTube.
What perfume will you be taking on your holidays?
Jimmy Choo Exotic. It’s fun and not too expensive, which is always a bonus!
