Beauty Worth Waiting For…

Posted · 11 Comments

Two lovely beauty things that have caught my eye, and they both have waiting lists before they’ve even hit the shelves for the first time. How do you feel about waiting lists for special edition makeup items? Are you are complete makeup obsessive who simply has to have the latest eyeshadow shades or collectable compact? Or do [...]

How to Cover Dark Circles

Posted · 17 Comments

As promised, a video dedicated to undereye circles and ways of disguising them. My dark circles are ridiculous today – so much so that I’m almost regretting filming the makeup video when I did, at the end of last week. It would have all looked so much more dramatic if I had waited and filmed [...]

Contouring Mishaps and a Foolproof Fix…

Posted · 36 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. There’s a reason why it’s a relatively new idea, in mainstream beauty, and [...]

Best Undereye Concealers for Dark Circles

Posted · 65 Comments

This has been a pet project of mine for the past few years; finding very high coverage concealers that will fade out dark circles without making them grey and ashy. I have tried – quite literally – hundreds, and though there are dozens of them that work well, I’ve narrowed it down to my top [...]

An Indulgent Autumn Makeup Look

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 loved the autumnal feel of the photograph above; warm, slightly tawny and beautifully glowing. The skin is less golden than the summery looks I’ve been wearing until now; [...]

Nails: An Affordable Dupe for my Favourite Polish!

Posted · 16 Comments

I can tell you, with absolute hand-on-the-heart conviction, that The Body Shop’s Colour Crush nail polish in Just Peachy is a hundred-percent dupe for one of my favourite shades, Chanel’s Holiday. I have tested it in all lights and it is exact in every way – I’ve even made Mr AMR examine my nails painted with the two shades and he [...]

My Bronzed Holiday Makeup with Hot Red Lips

Posted · 7 Comments

  I’m supposed to be on a self-imposed work ban on this holiday (I’m in Greece), but the other afternoon it started to pour down with rain and Mr AMR was watching old cowboy films on the television and so I decided to kill some time and make a quick beauty video. There’s only so [...]

First-Night-of-the-Holiday Makeup Look

Posted · 6 Comments

First night of the holidays, and Mr AMR and I managed to drag ourselves out to dinner despite being absolutely shattered! I decided to do a bit of a sultry eye to compliment my rather glam leopard print dress (Baum und Pferdgarten) and cracked out Charlotte Tilbury’s Vintage Vamp palette, which has a beautiful array of warm, [...]
