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.
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 recently shot a new campaign with Jacamo and my brother Jamie in sunny Blackpool! I can't believe we shot together in Blackpool when we used to go every weekend to swim at Derby Baths. It was very nostalgic! What better way to spend your day than working with an amazing team and your family?
I just spent the weekend in Cannes on a little break my husband booked for me as a birthday present. We have been renovating our house for the last 6 months so we’ve been pushing this trip back since January and finally decided we needed a break and had to go.
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.
I loved filming with B. Beauty for these ageless beauty videos.
When you’ve been confident doing your own makeup for years and then there’s a flurry of new words, products and trends it’s hard to keep up! Have a watch of my latest video and see if it helps bring you up to speed.
You can find all my Ageless Beauty videos on the Superdrugloves YouTube channel!
One of the questions I always get asked is which foundation is best for oily skin. Finding the best foundation for your skin type is no easy task and with so many options out there it’s hard to pick one that is perfectly suited to your skin. I do often find that clients wrongly determine their skin type so getting that right would be the first port of call.

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:
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 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 had the most amazing time at the EMA’s no long ago. I saw so many people I work with, the atmosphere was incredible and to be there when it was hosted in London was a memory to last forever. I really do have the best job!
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 can’t believe we are at that time already where it's almost Halloween! I filmed these videos quite a while ago so that was even stranger but I am getting excited now its getting closer.Halloween has become such a big deal now and everyone has started going all out on their looks.
