“Fresh natural skin starts with drinking lots of water, great skincare and minimal makeup,” she tells 7Life.

For a natural coverage, she opts for Ciaté London Dewy Skin ($52).

“I like to use just a touch… it’s all you need,” she explains.

With a hectic schedule, the mum-of-two always ensures she stays immaculate — even if she only has five minutes to spare.

“I live for a speedy five-minute makeup routine,” Hannah says.

“Moisturiser with SPF, followed by concealer, tinted moisturiser, bronzer, brow gel, mascara then lipstick on lips and cheeks and voila — quick and easy makeup you can apply in under five minutes.”

If she’s ever stranded on a desert island, there are three items she would want with her.

“All I would want is a good SPF, mascara and lip balm,” she says.

As one of the most in-demand makeup artists in the industry, Hannah says there are two purse-friendly items she always reaches for.

“When it comes to chemist store products, there are always treasures to find,” she says.

“I love Garnier Micellar Water ($7.50 from Coles and Woolworths) for quick changes and Dr.PAWPAW ($4.99 from Priceline) for chapped skin or for a really high-gloss glow.”

If there’s one makeup product that’s “not worth the hype”, it’s the colour changing lipsticks.

“I don’t love colour changing lipsticks — you know, the ones that look clear but go pink,” she says.

“I just think if you want a pink lipstick, get a pink lipstick.”

For a “camera-ready” look, Hannah suggests, “just keep it simple”.

“Brighten under the eyes with a colour corrector, warm the corners of the face with bronzer and define the brows — all the usual — but just don’t go too heavy on the eyes as they can look extremely dark in a small photo ratio.”

Hannah recently released her new Pro Brush Collection with cult beauty brand Ciaté London at Mecca Australia.

“It is so hard to pinpoint a best moment in my career, from seeing my name credited in Vogue for the first time, my first TV appearance to my first product collaboration,” she says

“But I’ve got to say my collection launching into Mecca on the other side of the world has been pretty amazing.” has not received any monetary benefit from this content.
