If you read my regular blogs you will see I am a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury make-up and I use it for my own personal use as well as work. My all time favourite product has to be the Luxury Palette Vintage Vamp.
So when Charlotte Tilbury had launched a new mascara Legendary Lashes a couple of weeks' ago I was really interested in trying this particular product to see if I had found a “Instant Miracle Mascara”
Below is a photograph from Charlotte Tilbury's website showing the transformation
WOW Charlotte Tilbury you “Darling” on the first application my eyelashes have doubled...
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...
Summer is here and the scary thought is showing of those lilly white legs ! Do you want that gorgeous glow on the skin?
Over the last couple of weeks I have been testing the alternative self tanning product for the body Glow “Oil” by Hand Chemistry. Which is under the umbrella brand of DECIEM.
Glow “Oil” is an award winning 2015 self tanning product with Cosmopolitan Beauty Labs, CEW Beauty Awards Finalist and Women’s Health Future Beauty Awards.
What is the difference to this product to other self tanning brands?
It is DHA free. DHA in a nutshell is a colourless chemical...
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.
Straight off the catwalks of New York, London, Paris and Milan the summer make-up trend is blue eyeliner.
How can you wear blue eyeliner without looking like you have gone back in time in the 1980’s or looking like ABBA.
The trick is to make the focus on the eyeliner but keep the rest of the make-up on the skin and lips really natural. Less is more with this type of look.
To create the look I used a blue khol pencil by Daniel Sandler
Foundation: Armani Silk Foundation
Concealer: Amazing Concealer
Mascara: RMK 03W
Eyebrows: Eylure Eyebrow...
A while ago I was approached to create a look using Honey for Noctis Magazine.
I did use real honey instead of a skincare product to create the images shown within the magazine.
On the skin I used
Concealer - Amazing Concealer
Freckles - Liz Earle Pencil in Dark Brown and Golden Bronze
Whilst writing this blog I was thinking about the use of honey in skincare and make-up products. Honey has wonderful nurturing, repair and healing properties to the skin and has been used since Cleopatra claimed to have used it all those centuries ago.
I have listed my top 3 must...
Lartington Hall is like one of those hidden gems in the beautiful area of Barnard Castle. You drive down a long dramatic driveway surrounded by trees and wow you arrive at the entrance with breathtaking amount of marble flooring and floor to ceiling mirrors. You curve round the corner of the hallway and are welcomed by subtle colours of French duck egg blue and the most exquisite furniture.
I have been sitting here trying to decide how to describe this wedding, the only words I can think of is “celebrity wedding oozing with style “
Kyleigh, the bride, was just breathtakingly beautiful...
About twice a year I get to work for Katy of What Katy Did Next. I always get excited when she sends me a message to ask if I am available for a photo shoot for her latest collections.
Katy has an amazing talent of creating some fabulous creations in headpieces as well as necklaces (which I have many in leather pieces) to the full length church veils
The latest collection “The New Botanical” is a mixture of using textures of rose gold and bronze.
To compliment her beautiful collection I wanted to create a look that would suit both models on a similar aspect. Some of the looks I used...
It is always wonderful when I get asked to be make-up artist for magazine editorials and the latest issue of La Di Da Magazine I got to work with LA model Francoise Boufhal who was back in the UK for a short while. Francoise has such a busy schedule working in LA in USA. Francoise was so easy to work with during the photoshoot with her dog, Spider who was just adorable.
You must get your hands on a copy of the magazine from various stockists or online here
Here are the latest images captured by the Chris Davis of Specular

Many months ago I was asked by Middleton Lodge to write guest blogs for them. What a proud moment for me as this is one of my all time favourite venue and place to visit for weddings. I visit Middleton Lodge at least a couple of times a month, afternoon tea, Sunday lunches and for a facial's with Selena using REN skincare. I have been visiting Middleton Lodge for over 6 years now and truly call it my "second home".
The latest guest blog written for Middleton Lodge was to describe how you can be influenced by catwalk make-up and create the look for your Wedding Day. The image...
