Emma spends a further £7,000 a year on clothes
Emma Dearden is 16 and a sixth-form pupil at private Hurtwood House School, near Dorking, specialising in art and drama.She lives in Dorking with her parents, Sue, 47, who runs her own company Panache PR, and father Andrew, 51, a documentary cameraman. She has an 18-year-old sister, Sophie.
Emma says: Even though I am still only in my teens, I spend a lot of money on keeping myself in shape.
My dance and exercise classes, which I take at my private school, Hurtwood House, £1,000 above the school fees each term.
I do jazz, ballet, tap and modern, and my parents spend at least £50 a month on dance shoes and clothes for me.
It's very important that I stay in shape, as I want to make dance and drama my career.
I also take an aerobics class every week which costs £5, and I swim weekly at our leisure centre which costs about £5, too.
I'm also a member of a gym in Dorking - Harper's, where membership is £30 a month.
I do a lot of cycling, too. My parents bought me a really fantastic bike for about £350 and that really helps keep me fit.
At the moment, I am a size six to eight, which I think is about right, as I am 5ft 4in.
My favourite make-up brands are MAC and Benefit, and even just a small tube of eye cream from Benefit costs £35.
Mum puts £100 into my allowance once a month, but it seems to be all gone, instantly.
I spend about £40 on my Lancome mascara, and I can easily spend £100 in a month on lipglosses, eyeliner, lipstick
Mum says that I wear too much make-up to school, but we all want to look good - it's quite a competitive environment.
My beauty treatments make a large part of my 'body bill'.
I have my eyebrows waxed every month, which costs £12, and my leg waxing costs £30 a month.
I have my hair cut every six weeks, at Toni & Guy, which costs about £60.
Occasionally, I have a professional make-up session, another £60, if I'm going to a special event.
I have a facial quite often, which costs £30, and I have my nails done every month for £20.
I also spend at least £30 a month on nail varnish.
I seem to get through an awful lot of shampoo and conditioner - I like Elvive and probably spend £20 a week on that alone.
I moisturise with a L'Oreal cream, which costs about £40 a pot, but I have found you can't beat Johnson's body oil - this only costs about £5, so that's one bargain!
I'm very into fashion as well, and I spend at least £7,000 a year on clothes and shoes.
I started to care about my appearance by the age of five or six - my mum used to laugh when I refused to wear what she wanted me to.
By 11, I was choosing my outfits to wear at the weekend the night before, and I even had a little sketch book in which I designed new outfits.
I am influenced by Mum - she's a former newsreader who now runs her own PR company, and she loves designers such as Chanel and Oscar de la Renta.
My aim is to work in film or TV, and I've already done some modelling.
I know how important it is to look your best. I'm lucky in that I can eat what I want, but mum is a very healthy cook so we eat mostly fresh, home-cooked food.
I hardly drink any alcohol.
