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
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...
