Q) What do you do to detox your skin after wearing make-up for longer hours?
TP: Being in the entertainment industry, we tend to go with a lot of make-up under harsh lighting for long hours. I make sure to use a water-based make-up remover and I follow a detailed skincare regime. I cleanse, tone and moisturise on a regular basis, and as I said, I keep myself hydrated.

Q) The five make-up essentials in your bag.
