Part of my working week is being involved on photo shoots, creating looks for photographers and writing articles for magazines.
I had a chance to collaborate with photographer Rebecca Elizabeth Tate to create this look. This latest look was published in La Di Da Magazine
I wanted to show you how to create easy natural beauty look using 6 items from Illamasqua:
Foundation: Skin Base Foundation
Eyes: Precision Gel Eyeliner in black
Blusher: Bronzing Duo in Glint/Ra
Eyebrows: Eyebrow Cake in Dark Slate Grey
Lips: Lipgloss in Sheer Electrify
It's time to put your heavy foundations away for the summer months coming ahead.
You may ask but what can you wear instead as you like to wear some coverage on the skin?
I must admit myself I don’t wear foundation, I tend to prefer a light tinted moisturiser on my skin and use concealer as and where I need it. BB creams are generally as a rule slightly richer in texture and have more coverage than a tinted moisturiser. I was really pleased with the results of the latest BB Cream by Kiehl's which I have been using over the last couple of weeks.
The main benefits of Kiehl's Actively Correctly...
After having to have some recent surgery taking a month to recover and recoup, my skin was left feeling dry, sensitive and generally feeling a need for some pampering. My first thought to get my skin back to its pristine condition was which mask do I use to help me with my skin?
After much thinking time, I came to the decision that the most appropriate one for the condition of my skin was Sisley Facial Mask with Linden Blossom
This mask I can only describe as “pure luxury in a tube.”
Imagine you are applying the most luxurious cashmere onto the skin with a feeling of the rich, velvety...
As a make-up artist, we are coming into one of our busiest times of the year “ WEDDING SEASON”.
Do you need to find a make-up artist for your Wedding Day? Or maybe one of your friends or member of your family is thinking of their make up for their Wedding Day.
Here is a chance to see my latest work for Unveiled Magazine. I was proudly asked to be part of the team to create this front cover look and also write beauty articles within the magazine.
You must grab a copy of this magazine and here’s a list of the next wedding fayres in the month of April by Brides Up North
There are so many concealers on the market and we walk around the department stores and look bemused at which ones to choose…. they are either too white and chalky or too dark for the skin tone which leave the skin feeling clogged up with the make-up.
I came across a concealer by Ariane Poole whom I met many years’ ago and had the good fortune that our paths crossed…. she offered to re-train me back into the industry after I left the fashion industry and has been my mentor.
You may ask who is Ariane Poole?…. Ariane is an international celebrity make-up artist who has worked with...
I am not sure if you know but I worked for Lancome for many years in my career and always had a loyalty to the brand and their ambassadors as leading women. When their new foundation was delivered to me I immediately wanted to start using it.
The Miracle Cushion Fluid Foundation in a compact with a SPF23. I hear you all say fluid foundation in a compact how can this be done?
What a revelation this foundation is. These fluid foundation compacts are extremely popular in Korea and are the way forward for quick, easy to apply application in this fast pace life we all lead.
My thoughts on the Miracle...
Springtime in 2015 is all about pink, whether its rose, blush, shell, or even a strong candy pink.
My favouite pink item has to be the Guerlain Meteorites Perles de Blush in Angelic Radiance.
The packaging is beautifully made and reminds me of the heritage of Guerlain in the 1900’s. This small intricate box with angelic angels and the sweetest of pink packaging will look fabulous on a dressing table or take it to work to make your colleagues swoon over it!
Once you open the box and you can smell the scent of violets which is like going back in time. These mini magical Meteorites pearls...
A few weeks' ago Ariane Poole contacted me to ask if I wanted to be part of the make-up team for an amazing designer Ong Oag Pairam at London Fashion Week.
What could I say ….of course I had to say YES!!!
Arrived early lunchtime at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden where it all began.
Working backstage is all about the atmosphere where you spend the next four hour call time, prepping hair and make-up with models getting ready for dress rehearsal for final preparations of fittings and outfit decisions.
Photographers and film crew wondering around capturing the day, stylists,...
Lipsticks over the season have been dramatic with reds, plums and deep berry colours. If you are struggling to wear these colours opt for a more subtle look which is so striking and easy to wear for the season ahead.

The lipsticks colours I have picked are from one of my favourite lipstick brands, called Lipstick Queen. Lipstick Queen was founded by Australian lipstick guru Poppy King.

I am always slightly skeptical about eyelash primers as they can make your eyelashes look clumpy with spidery looking legs!
How can this primer claim to offer three uses. ? So for a week I tried the primer in the three formats and I am honestly say I was shocked at how good the Little Black Primer is.
On days when you want that “no makeup look” or want to follow the trend of a smoky eye and not to have the eyelashes too extended. The Tint option makes the eyelashes look glossy and natural.
It really does amplify my eyelashes. One coat...
