One of the most common things I always get asked is which primers are best for oily skin. Everyone wants a flawless finish however for those with oily skin it can be tricky to maintain as the day goes on.
A glowing, ultra-dewy complexion is currently trending with everyone from runway models to bloggers emulating the look of soft, glowing skin. The summer season is coming to an end yet the desire to create a face that’s luminous and healthy-looking with a golden shine is still at an all time high. The best way to get that natural, youthful look is really simple and easily achievable in just a few steps.
I had such a lovely morning talking brows and freckles with Rochelle Humes on the Lorraine show this week, using some of my favourite brow products including Wunderbrow Eyebrow Gel, Illamasqua Brow Build, Bobbi Brown Eyebrow Pencil, Benefit Volumizing Eyebrow Gel and the brand new freckle stencil from Bronzie!
Absolutely love these new beauty images I shot with photographer Craig Fleming and models Ellie Drinkwater and Amy Crawford.
The simplest way to get a gorgeous eye look is to blend one shadow over the eyelid
I'm so excited that the new music video by Nina Nesbitt is out, Loyal to Me, which I recently worked on!
This month Superdrug celebrated two years of their #shadesofbeauty campaign and I was thrilled to be invited along to the store to meet their guests and chat about B. Makeup too.
I am so excited that B. have been nominated for the best Vegan Brand in the Glamour Beauty Power List!
I have been an ambassador at B. for four years now and I cannot express enough how amazing all the products are. My Cassie Lomas Whipped Bronzer in particular is my go to product, my own little pot of sunshine which I swear by every day!
Ok, I’m almost hitting 40 and I am pretty sure my pace of life should be slowing down a bit by now. My thirties have flashed by whilst my head is on a sviwel stick with flashes of work, kids, organising, traveling, packing, unpacking and instagram. Please tell me it’s not just me! Oh yes, the dreaded time stealer of social media is included too nowadays.
So if you didn't catch my Insta Stories this week, you won't have seen me trying out the Rodial Vitamin C Brightening Mask. Those of you who regularly follow my blogs will know that i'm a big fan of Rodial products and this mask is no exception.
So the new year is well and truly underway at CLMA.
I've loved teaching the new Bridal & Occasional makeup students. We have doubled the course time and I am so pleased. The difference in the skill of the artists was incredible, well worth the extra commitment.
I love working with Nina, she's such a stunner so it makes my job very easy. We had a great week shooting her new music video and Nina also performed ‘Somebody Special” on Sunday Brunch which I did her hair and makeup for. How cute is her little top knot! I really like how her look is fresh, young and cool. I think it's a great representation of how makeup should be.
Shooting the annual Academy images is always the highlight of my year. It’s such a big thing for me to get right and I really like to try and create something relevant but exciting.
I recently went to the Laura Mercier event hosted by Mary Greenwell. I've loved Mary’s work for so long and was lucky enough to assist her several times many years ago so it was great to see her on the stage showing us all her tips and tricks with the range.
I really love Rodial skincare so I was thrilled to try their new Rose Gold range, what a lovely treat!The serum is designed to reshape and rejuvenate. I don’t often feel instant benefits from any serums and they can be heavy on my skin but this was different to what I am used to.
I having been looking for some nice makeup mirrors for ages and I recently found some! I know what I am looking for but even I found it difficult to make a decision so I thought I would share it.
So the new prospectus and courses are up for 2018 and I am pretty sure anyone wanting to do a course will be pleased with our changes.We have increased the length of our makeup artistry courses so we can fit in more skills, practice and help.
I'm so glad these have launched because they are firmly in my daily makeup routine. I love a groomed brow but I do find it hard to find pencils I like. Until now! When I first tried this out pre production I fell in love with it straight away.
I had a lovely day yesterday visiting some of the beauty journalists to talk about all the new B. Makeup and my collection. It's so nerve wracking creating your own range and having to present it to such experts who live and breathe makeup as much as me.
