Supersonic Face Masks

Posted · 22 Comments

Kicking off the new week with some brilliant, powerful face masks. These are the kind of masks that you can rely on to give your skin a proper overhaul in a very short amount of time; brightening, smoothing and plumping, brilliant for erasing signs of fatigue or over-indulgence. (Basically, what I am getting at here, [...]

Favourite Beauty Products: September

Posted · 12 Comments

A mixed bag of favourites, this month (last month, rather – so sorry it’s late!) but there are a few real beauty crackers for you. I have been testing out eye makeup removers recently, and I will do a bigger post on my findings, but I couldn’t wait to tell you about the two budget [...]

Bras, Broken Teeth and the Launch of Zoella Beauty

Posted · 15 Comments

I had a bit of a crazy day in town yesterday – jam-packed with meetings and errands and things to do – and so I thought that I would “vlog” it. (Regular readers will know how much I detest the word vlog; I will quite literally jump for joy the day it becomes something else. Because [...]

Nails: The Cara Delevingne-Inspired Manicure

Posted · 7 Comments

This nail look by @NailArtistMartha was inspired by the gorgeous new Chanel campaign that stars Cara Delevingne. I desperately want to do some kind of “get the look” makeup video based on the new campaign image (I would love to know what Cara has woven into her hair!) so no doubt we’ll be returning to this manicure for that, too.

July Makeup and Skincare Favourites

Posted · 12 Comments

Here we are once more; monthly favourites. I have Caroline Hirons with me again so you’ll need to prepare yourself for a fair amount of chatting. In Caroline’s skincare video, at any rate – I edited the makeup video down from thirty-two minutes to about nine, but Caroline has gone for the director’s cut and published [...]

Off to Cannes!

Posted · 18 Comments

Today I am going to Cannes Film Festival with Dior and I must say that I am incredibly excited. I have never been to Cannes before and I’m looking forward to seeing all of the glitz and the glamour and perhaps doing a bit of swanning about pretending to be a film star. As you [...]
