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

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...
STEAMCREAM is one of my all time favourite products. It is a daily all in-one moisturiser for face, body and hands.

When Unveiled Magazine asked me to create the make-up for these latest images for the Issue 06 I was so excited. My inspiration for this look comes from working backstage on all the catwalk shows in London, Paris and Milan with a mixture of a “ethereal look” taken from the oil paintings who created this magical aspect to the skin. The make-up I used to create this “editorial look” was by Pat McGrath. The skin had this “editorial glow” especially on the cheekbones where it was truly captured by the camera.

As it is coming up to the “Wedding Season”. As well as working all around the world on catwalk shows, editorial photo shoots, look books, campaigns, whilst I am home I love nothing better than being the make-up artist for brides in the UK.

Whilst working during London Fashion Week and assisting alongside the one and only truly amazing inspirational and creative Val Garland for the delightful designer Temperley London, I got the chance to try the new make-up collection and lipsticks by Rodial called Suede Lips.
Rodial Skincare was launched in 1999 with the huge success of the famous Dragon Blood range and drive and determination by Maria Hatzistefanis herself to bring this inspirational brand to the industry.
The Rodial Suede Lips were the first lipstick to be launched straight after the Temperley Show and available to buy online...
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 ?
I shared some images on Instagram and got a huge response with the look I had created using products by Liz Earle. One Instagram follower was inspired so much she created the look herself by being inspired by the images.
Here are the images I had shared and wanted to list the products which I used by Liz Earle to create the look yourself which is perfect for the summertime, weekends, holidays look or even for a first date !

Skin Repair Moisturiser for Normal to Combination skin
