What does a make-up artist do on her birthday? I get to work on an exciting studio shoot with some fabulous creatives.
Every couple of months I meet up with the two owners of Rock N Rose and photographer Richy Leeson who are all young, enthuastic and full of ideas. Rock N Rose is a huge success online with their own website and featuring on ASOS plus celebrities from Pixie Lott wearing their pieces.
The theme for this collection with disco/1970’s/boho inspired with a modern twist.

When I saw this latest palette launched by Chantecaille for Spring 2014 - Save the Bees Collection, I thought I must write about it.
Every season Chantecaille bring out a palette where 5% of the proceeds go to the designated charity. Last month I wrote about the Wild Horses.
It may be wet, cold and grey outside but this latest palette of Spring colours of warm coral, pink and soft nectar brings some sunshine to the face.
The palette comes in 4 refillable sections:
