How does cool girl Mae Tan get ready for a night out? Find out more about her beauty must-haves, sexiest scent and why her Urban Decay setting spray is the key to keeping her look intact

Mae Tan is one of the coolest 'It' girls in our little city. Not only does she have a formidable Instagram following, the marketing creative at Surrender was responsible for securing some impressive collaborations including the store hosting a Louis Vuitton x Fragment pop-up in 2017. She was also named one of Buro's 24 creatives in 2017 and spoke with us on being a social media influencer for our career special. What the beauty department wanted to know? How does Mae look so flawless yet edgy all the time. Here she reveals her beauty secrets for getting ready for a night out — and recovering the morning after.

The hair products I use to keep my hair looking good are the OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil and Home Rescue which I buy from the Kim Robinson salon.

My power lipstick shade for a night out is Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Bun Bun or Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Tonkin, which has been discontinued.

When I know I'll be dancing and partying I look for a flawless, buildable and glowy foundation.

My tip for keeping my makeup pristine on a night out is using the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray both before and after makeup application.

The sexiest scent for an evening out is Ambrose by Henry Jacques Parfums.

My favourite jams for getting ready are 'Location' by Khalid, 'Wait a Minute' by Willow Smith and 'The Waters' by Anderson Paak.

The must-haves and emergency products I carry with me are a lipstick that doubles up as a blush, plasters (pretty shoes + dancing feet = blisters), airpods (for when I need to shut everyone out) and an Apple wire — it has always been a saviour.

The best advice I got from the girl's bathroom is love yourself and be rewarded.

I remove all my makeup with Bioré makeup wipes.

The morning after, I help my skin recover with the Skin Inc Facial-In-A-Flash mask used with the brand's Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light.
