Greece, Beaches and Bumps in the Road

Posted · 10 Comments

Another lazy post, perfect for a bit of Saturday perusing: you don’t even need to read any words for this one, just click the play button below and I’ll do the work for you. It’s a short video that I filmed the other day when we were visiting the island of Elafonisos (amazing!) and on the [...]

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 [...]

August Skincare and Makeup Favourites

Posted · 17 Comments

Monthly favourites are here again – the weeks are just hurtling by, aren’t they? Before we know it, it’ll be the C-word! (Christmas.)

I’ll be talking about the Smashbox primer in another post and the Brow Duo has been mentioned here on the site about sixty-five million times, so it’s [...]

This year Max Factor are celebrating 100 Years of Glamour. It has been a whole hundred years since Mr Max Factor (real person!) launched his first ever cosmetic, his Flexible Grease Paint Foundation. Max Factor was a bit of a mover and a shaker in the makeup world; he was a big Hollywood makeup artist, working on all [...]

Budget Beauty: Best-Buy Makeup

Posted · 14 Comments

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 [...]

1) I saw this article in Stylist magazine and thought that it was just brilliant; I hadn’t heard of Life Hacks before but now I’m going to be sat there thinking them up all day! Life Hacks, according to Stylist, are little “tips and tricks to get rid of the tiny everyday annoyances in life”. They’ve rounded up [...]
