Creating a flawless skin with Cover FX

Here’s a funky little video that I made when I was experimenting with my Cover FX products. Apologies in advance for the terrible music, Youtube wouldn’t let me use my first choice and so I swapped it for the best thing I could find. In the video I create a nice flawless base with a hint of fresh colour on … Read More

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask

Jeez Lousie – this mask really does do what it says it’s going to do, and more; I have used it twice now and both times it has surprised me with it’s sheer effectiveness. These Omorovicza people don’t mess about, I’m telling you – using this mask is like sending your face for a full-on, no-joke facial. To quote Cult … Read More

L'Wren Scott for Lancôme

I had the wonderful opportunity today of meeting Aaron de May, Lancôme’s Global Makeup Director. He was in London Selfridges to launch the L’Wren Scott collection for Christmas 2010, but on an extremely tight schedule and so he managed to pack about one thousand makeup tips and ideas into a twenty minute session! Talking to just six of us, Aaron … Read More

Repêchage Vita Cura Seaweed Bath

I’m not sure whether any of you have ever had a proper spa ‘bath’ – by that I mean immersed in water that has had specific things added to it to detoxify the body or help to soothe muscles and so on. I had a jolly good time in Ibiza many years ago – a bit too much of a … Read More

These Boots Were Made For Stomping

On the average day of castings, I take around six tube journeys (that’s six lots of running up the escalators as I can’t stand still!) and I walk for miles. I’m not exaggerating, neither am I moaning – I love a good, brisk walk. Walking is better when the weather turns slightly colder, and that’s because summer shoes are crap … Read More

Cosmetics a la Carte

A couple of weeks ago I went to visit the wonderful treasure-trove of a shop that is Cosmetics a la Carte. The shop, in Motcomb Street, has had a bit of a facelift, but I also had been waiting for an excuse to meet the infamous Lynne Sanders, cosmetic chemist and co-founder of the brand. I have long been intrigued … Read More
