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 was really busy last week working at London Fashion Week. The first show was Matty Bovan and Lead makeup artist is Miranda Joyce and the makeup by Marc Jacobs.
The second show I was involved in was Temperley London with the famous Val Garland and model Blanca Padilla. Rodial makeup was used and there are some lipsticks that have been launched by Val and Rodial at Harrods. Click here to see more about Rodial Skincare

I just love creating some amazing make-up looks for editorial magazines and my latest work has been shown online with Material Girl magazine.
The key focus for this look was the strong black eyeliner which had a 1960's influence from some of the iconic looks from Jean Shrimpton to Brigitte Bardot.
To create the look you need use the blackest of eyeliners - you may be saying but "black is black". Some blacks have a grey undertone so for the look I wanted the black to really stand out as the strongest feature thanks to Pat McGrath latest limited edition eyeliner.

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 !
Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion
Skin Repair Moisturiser for Normal to Combination skin
Foundation Sheer Skin Tint in Bare 1
It is always such an amazing surprise when I receive make-up in the post for me to try. The latest make-up product I have received is by Daniel Sandler.
I immediately was inspired to use the Radiant Glow Illuminating Face powder on a client to create a similar look to the pink from pink peonies. The look my client wanted was to create those rosy cheeks with a gentle cat flick eyeliner.
How I used the Daniel Sandler Radiant Glow Illuminating Face Powder
To create the colour on the cheeks I used a small blusher brush and used the four colours in the palette to create the glow.
As you know this time of year is Festival Season. For the latest edition of La Di Da magazine I wrote an article on how to create the 'festival look'.

A few months ago I got to work alongside an amazing team to create this image. The brief I received was to achieve the most natural beauty look. I wanted to really look at the products I used and create the look with minimal amount of products and ease so you all could create this look.
Top key five products I used.
1. Moisturiser: Steamcream
2. Skinbase: Ariane Poole Ultimate Face Tint Primer Medium
3. Concealer: Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer Medium Beige and Tan Golden
4. Highlighter: Kiko Radiant Touch
5. Blusher: Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick Es Verda
If you read my previous blogs you will know I am a huge fan of Lipstick Queen.
Lipstick Queen created 20 years ago by Poppy King in Australia in search of the perfect lipstick. The latest lipstick to be introduced to the range is Frog Prince.
You may be looking shocked at the thought of applying an emerald green coloured lipstick but wait and see the magic happens.
Once you apply Frog Prince onto the lips, the warmth of the lips change the green lipstick to various shades of rosebud pink depending on your own natural pH and your own skintone.
Why you must purchase this lipstick
