Grazia Daily: What does spring summer 2015 mean to you in terms of beauty?

Gucci Westman: "There’s a lot of play on skin, with different textures, sculpting and finishes. I’ve created a great new highlighting palette with Revlon in gorgeous matte tones for the new season to help get this look. Also, we saw a lot more colour on the runway both in terms of lips and eyes. Revlon are launching the new Ultra HD Lipstick which has really bright bold shades."

GD: Is there a show that summed up the season for you?

GW: "Oscar de la Renta – the look was ultra feminine, but the type of feminine where the woman is on top of her game, not sitting around waiting for a man."

**GD: Which SS15 beauty trend should we all try?

GW: "A bright lip! Like I mentioned Revlon are launching the brand new Ultra HD Lipsticks which are full of highly pigmented colour yet, the formula is wax free so totally weightless. There’s all sorts of gorgeous shades to chose from."

GD: Which five makeup and skincare products should we all have in our SS15 beauty bag?

**GW: "Revlon PhotoReady Prime + Anti Shine Balm (£9.99), Revlon new PhotoReady Matte Highlighting Palette in (£8.99), Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick (£7.99), Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream (£28.00) and Jo Malone Vitamin E Body Scrub (£70.00)"

GD: Which models/celebrities should we be looking to for our new season inspiration and why?

GW: "Cara Delevingne – she’s really cute, I like her a lot and she has a great social media presence, I think it’s a great place to turn to for inspiration, especially Instagram."
