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 [...]

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 [...]

Youth-Infusing Foundation: Tried and Tested

Posted · 15 Comments

Another foundation launch; this time it’s Estée Lauder with the Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup. Foundations are just getting better and better; lightweight formulas, great coverage and glowy finishes that aren’t shimmery or reflective, but give the skin a “lit from within” kind of radiance. I know that many of you are keen for me to do a full [...]

I really need to get some kind of video-posting system going; I publish a video and then it takes me about five weeks to write about it! I am mid-way through a website re-structure (if you ever come to the site during the witching hours (2am-4am) you’ll no doubt see all kind of weird experiments [...]

Favourite Summertime Nail Polishes.

Posted · 9 Comments

I asked Lily from LilyPebbles.co.uk to tell me about her favourite summery nail polishes and then – try not to die of excitement here – I told her all about mine! Granted it’s not one of my top ten conversational topics of choice, but we were supposed to be chatting about perfumes and I forgot my [...]

The Easy Beachy Makeup Tutorial

Posted · 16 Comments

I made a nice little bronzing video for The Telegraph this week; I was trying to channel 1990’s Kate Moss, so very dusty bronzed skin with nothing much on the eyes or lips. I put to use one of my favourite summertime products, Chanel’s Tan de Soleil, which is a cream bronzing base, and layered [...]

Hot Red Lips and Flawless Skin.

Posted · 20 Comments

A massive load of people asked for a video using Clinique’s new Matte Mandarin lipstick and so here it is in full, glorious technicolor. It was actually the entire “look” that I wore in my How to Style Greasy and Limp Hair video that people seemed to want and so I trawled back through the footage and tried to copy the [...]
