My Updated Autumn Makeup Look

Posted · 20 Comments

Here’s the Autumn makeup look from Monday’s video, shown in full. And yes I did revise it and remove the dark, harsh eyeliner! Although many of you actually really liked it (thank you for your kind words) I couldn’t quite get my head around it and so I re-filmed using shadow around the lashline for softer [...]

Quick and Easy Autumn Makeup Updates

Posted · 29 Comments

A short and sweet little roundup of my quick makeup updates for Autumn. Generally, things in my makeup bag just get a little more sultry and warm; a tawnier bronzer (or brownish blush, depending on which way you look at it), a vampish nail colour, a stronger brow and a slightly darker-than-usual lipstick. The last [...]

My Homemade Burberry Makeup Look

Posted · 11 Comments

So many people commented on my makeup that I wore to the Burberry show that I thought I’d knock together a quick recreation of it on video. It isn’t exact, I’m afraid, but that’s partly because I didn’t have the foggiest recollection of how I’d done it all in the first place. I often apply my [...]

How to Get the Glow and Stop the Shine!

Posted · 29 Comments

Possibly the worst of the summer skin problems is having to deal with excess shine. Shine either brought on by overactive oil glands or by sweating or both.

Pixiwoo Swimming Pool Makeup Tutorial

Posted · 5 Comments

For those who were asking about a tutorial on my TWO Magazine cover makeup – it’s out. Sam from Pixiwoo actually filmed the tutorial on the shoot itself, so it’s a nice behind-the-scenes kind of video, as well as being instructive. I say instructive, but there’s also a lot of chit-chat going down! If you can’t see [...]

As promised, a video with some of my current makeup favourites in action. You can see the Sunday Riley Primer and the Lancome Visionnaire Foundation being applied as well as a brilliant new bronzer from the Body Shop and a little cream blush from Bourjois. On the eyes, a KIKO cream shadow (it’s amazing) and one of [...]

Best of Spring Makeup Collection

Stupidly, I tidied my beauty room in a hurry. I mean “tidy” in the loosest possible sense of the word, because what I really did was open up all of the drawers in my storage units and sweep everything into them. This doesn’t bode well for any product that has less than eye-catching packaging; I fear that [...]
