Sorry to my Daily Fix subscribers; this post should have made it into your inboxes yesterday, but I was transferring some video files and my internet had a meltdown. It can’t handle anything more taxing than sending an email attachment, so trying to transfer 1.5GB of video just about killed it off. But anyway, here we are, [...]

Posted · 27 Comments

I want to talk about contouring in greater detail soon; there seems to have been this crazy fad for it and I’m not sure that everyone has been embracing the trend with quite the caution and trepidation that they should have been.

Kicking off the new week with some brilliant, powerful face masks.

I was tinkering about with some gorgeous Tom Ford makeup over the weekend, experimenting with a few products that I want to include in upcoming videos.

I’m becoming more and more adventurous with my face oils, trying all sorts of different textures and blends. There are so many out there to choose from – dry oils, oils with aromatherapy blends, balancing oils for blemish-prone skin, regenerating oils for damaged skin – and I haven’t really found any, yet, that my skin didn’t [...]

Something of a momentous post, this one, because today is the day that my dry shampoo range, COLAB, launches. What dry shampoo range? I hear you cry. This is the first I’ve bloody heard about it! Apologies, my dearest readers, but I’ve been under a bit of a gagging order and haven’t been able to talk about the range [...]
