Sam Chapman, 40, one half of beauty vlogging sensation PixiWoo, shares her tips on leading a happy, beautiful life…

  1. ‘Walking is my ultimate feelgood activity. I love being outdoors, there’s something about nature that has an amazing effect on your wellbeing. I especially enjoy being out with all the family in Norwich at the weekends.’
  2. ‘I designed Real Techniques brushes to give affordable, quality tools to make the most of your make-up. The Real Techniques Everyday Essentials Set (£19.99, includes my pick of the must-haves including a Miracle Complexion Sponge to give a smooth finish.’
  3. ‘While acids sound scary, they can actually be very kind to your skin. Although I don’t use them in every product, I do tend to use those that contain the likes of lactic, glycolic and hyaluronic acids. I am a big fan as some are excellent exfoliants, and others are great moisturisers.’
  4. Colab Original Dry Shampoo (£3.49, is my go-to for days when I want to add a little texture and body to my locks. It’s easy to spritz on and doesn’t show on darker hair. As I don’t like my hair to look overly done, this helps me achieve that undone finish in seconds.’
  5. ‘In terms of skincare, Sunday Riley products work really well for me. I have dry skin so team up Sunday Riley CEO Rapid Flash Brightening Serum (£70, and CEO Antioxidant Protect + Repair Moisturizer (£60, morning and night. They brighten and nourish my complexion.’
