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.
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
This week my interview with the Cameron Tewson, author of Front Row edit has been published. It was so lovely to be asked to talk about my job in the industry and all about the academy.
Cameron started the Front Row Edit in 2012 and has grown it into a successful luxury fashion blog, widely recognised in the industry and being voted one of the top ten blogs in the world. As you can imagine, it was an honour to be asked. Thanks Cameron!
Head over to the blog to have a read.
Whilst training people in make up it is often surprising to learn about habits that people have picked up and become accustomed to over time.
Here are some of my top makeup mistakes and how to correct them:
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.
Last week I got to celebrate the 1st year of the #shadesofbeauty campaign with Superdrug at a dinner they hosted at the Ivy in London. What a treat!The shades of beauty campaign was launched last year to highlight and address the issue of there being limited shades available on the high street particularly for deeper skin tones
This week with the students we've been working on getting in to work, going from learning makeup to how to turn that into skills when you are actually on a job. Makeup is one part of the job but teaching them how to transfer what they have learnt with me at the academy into working out a brief and meeting clients expectations
Natural brows are huge this season. It's all about the lightest way you can get definition and fullness.I had a little shop yesterday and came across the Illamasqua Brow Build.
If you haven't managed to get your hands on my collection or any of the fab new products from B. yet then they're currently on 3 for 2 at Superdrug online so go go go!
Have you ever tried Bikram Yoga? If not then you need to.I have just started back and I've missed it. It's so hard for me to fit in any time for myself to do anything, especially exercise.
Being a bit of a magpie I loved it when these dropped on my desk! I just love a bit of sparkle and these are brilliant because they save me mixing my own.
We like to hold masterclasses for all our graduates at CLMA so they have the opportunity to come back to the academy, learn new tips and be inspired.
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 think everyone deserves a bit of pamper time so what better way to relax than looking after your skin.I have a few faves at the moment, which I've talked about before, but you have to try.
I've gone a bit brush crazy since I brought my brush range out and I have sooooo many! I love them all of course but I feel like some of them are just amazing and I need to shout about it! Roxie is my foundation brush!
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.
Yesssss it’s that time of year when the sun starts making a regular appearance, music is uplifting and we go all out celebrating it. It’s festival time and its time to think about the different things you can do with your festival makeup!
