Holiday season is now upon us and it is a rare opportunity for me to take some time off from the world of makeup.
I am currently on a mini trip to Florence for 3 days. We always have the dilemma of what products we should have in our hand luggage to keep our skin hydrated and looking amazing in the sunshine.
Here are my essential hand luggage items to take produced by Bioderma:
I cannot guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s...
This is a must have for your handbag at all times. Small things come in small packages and the Ren Vita Mineral Lip Balm is one of them.
I have been using this Lip Balm for over two months on myself as well as my clients and models, both male and female. I can honestly say 99.9% have all said how wonderful
this product is from how it makes the lips feel to the texture.
Why I love REN Vita Mineral Lip Balm:
its soothes dry lips and perfect prep for applying lipstick
if you don’t want to wear lipstick as a colour this is perfect to enhance the lips
handy for travel and your...
We are at this time of year when the weather seasons have changed, we are exposing our skins to the sunshine and planning holidays abroad. We all love the feeling sunshine has on us from “feel good factor” to some health benefits of Vitamin D. We must, though, protect our skin from the damages that sunshine causes from minor issues to major skin cancer.
I have been trying the latest range from Bioderma who are leading brands in research into looking after your skin. Bioderma Photoderm Bronz SPF30 in a Dry Oil which is idea for sensitive fair skin. As a rule I find suntan products...

If you follow my blogs, facebook and Instagram you will know how much I love STEAMCREAM moisturiser.

Kiss the Moon last week won the Pure Beauty Best New British Winner 2016 so I wanted to write another blog on one of my favorite products from the range Glow After Dark Face Polish.
There are so many exfoliators in the beauty industry and it can be quite confusing trying to figure out which ones are suitable for you and still gentle on the skin.
There are four sections in the Kiss the Moon range called Love, Glow, Calm and Dream.
The glow range is secretly my favorite as I love the natural ingredients and scent used from sweet aromatic scent of the orange, to the healing aspect of Myrrh...
Whilst travelling and working in London, Milan and Paris for the fashion season which can be grueling but I secretly love every single second of this part of my career.
During the last month I have been working backstage on the show teams assisting Val Garland, Miranda Joyce and Lisa Eldridge on the amazing shows of Tod’s, Temperley, Hogan, Jill Sander and Sonia Rykiel and the newest designer Matty Bovan.
When I come back from working backstage on the shows I do find it difficult to switch off and stop the mind buzzing…..what product has saved me during the fashion season ?
Summertime has begun and as you will know in my previous blog I talked about getting the summer glow on your skin with the Hard Chemistry Glow "Oil" self – tanning product.
This week I thought I would review the sun care range from La Roche-Posay.
Over the years (and it seems to be getting worse as I am getting older) I have noticed my skin not only doesn’t like too much sun but also it struggles with sun cream. I can manage a couple of days and then by the 3rd/4th day my skin becomes blotchy, itchy and heat rashes occur on my skin.
Of course, being in the industry, I am fully...
Need to add a boost to the skin? Suffering from dehydrated skin and need that glow? Want to prepare the skin before an important hot date?
I have the answer REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask
Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is a cult product by the superb skincare brand of REN. I love REN as their approach is all about natural ingredients with a simple method as to how you can make your skin look amazing.
You only need to use this product once a week but it really is worth the weekly wait. It is a great purchase at only £32.00 for 50 ml.
I do have mixed thoughts about eye creams and in the past have always struggled with finding an eye cream that actually doesn’t make my eyes puffy, sore or end up with white spots under the eye structure area.
I have reached a time in my life when the eye area is certainly producing dare I say wrinkles ! but I am going to call them LIFE LIVED LAUGHTER LINES.
As a make-up artist I do get to meet some amazing companies and product brands during my travels and thank you to NIOD. I have the chance to try their latest technology enhanced Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate.
I have been travelling...
