Bras, Broken Teeth and the Launch of Zoella Beauty

Posted · 14 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 [...]

Space NK Gift: The Beauty Anthology

Posted · 38 Comments

Things in the latest Space NK gift-with-purchase that made me squeal with delight: a sample of the new REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial; a little tube of Becca’s cult makeup product, the Shimmering Skin Perfector; a teeny lipstick from Hourglass and – the piece de resistance (sorry, that needs accents but I can’t summon the energy to try every key [...]

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.) It’s quite a sharp and to-the-point beauty edit, this month, partly because for half of it I was testing out the Genifique serum and therefore slightly restricted, skincare-wise; but mostly because I’ve been incredibly [...]

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 [...]

On Trial: NEW Olay Regenerist Luminous

Posted · 39 Comments

Ah, the inviting creamy plumpness of a brand new pot of face cream! I plunge into this one with a small sense of trepidation, however, because for one month I am working with Olay to test out the new Regenerist Luminous collection* and I’m not allowed to use any other products. I repeat: any other products.** This [...]

January Beauty Favourites

Posted · 33 Comments

Ah, here we are again. Monthly favourites. Apologies in advance; I have been on a bit of a beauty “hiatus” this month, partly because I spent the first two weeks of it watching The Good Wife and partly because I still haven’t properly sorted out my beauty room. I don’t know where anything is and I [...]
