Autumn Winter months are upon us again now and our skin will be changing with the seasons with the drop of temperature and heating turned up. I wanted to re-share this blog post from last year of my top tips for combating winter redness on the skin.
Do you find you have the following problems with your skin during the cold months: red, red rosy cheeks, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis or just the common cold with the bright red nose?
Do you struggle to find a foundation and concealer that will cover your redness without looking too heavy or dry on the skin?
Veil Cover Cream is truly the beauty...
I wanted to share with you some images and a short film from my latest work with designer Pepe Lowe. The clothing brand features simple yet contemporary basics which are made out of 100% silk. I used the makeup to create an elegant yet effortless look to compliment the style of clothing that Pepe Lowe designs.
To create the look I used
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
Evolve Daily Renew Natural Face Cream
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution
Ariane Poole Ultimate Face Tint
Ariane Poole Mineral Illuminator Pen
Rodial Glamobrow Pencil
Oribe Matte Waves Texture Lotion
I always have such a varied aspect of work but I wanted to share with you my latest front cover. It's always exciting to work with a team to create a magazine cover and this time it was for Jules B which I adore. I had the pleasure of working on the autumn winter 2018 edition which is showcasing some of this seasons coolest and boldest outerwear for staying warm and cosy!
You can check out the full magazine online here for free. If you see anything you like in these images the online magazine has a really handy click through shopping feature too.
I created the looks for the front cover...
I get asked all the time what concealers I use and in particular for when you reach a “certain age”. You may find the eyes could be slightly puffy and with laughter lines and you want a concealer that works well with that. There are so many concealers on the market that can just make the area look worse, so I do hear so many women saying “why bother”.
To those having issues, or those just looking to try something new, try the 'Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer'.
There are 16 shades to choose from so if you struggle to decide online to purchase the right shade pop into one of her counters...
Steamcream is one of my all time favourite products I have come across in my years of experience as a makeup artist. I wanted to share with you what it is, why I love it and how I use it.
What Is Steamcream & How To Use It:
Steamcream is created using high quality natural and traceable raw ingredients which are bound by a steam-infused process to create a hydrating, easily absorbed and luxurious vegan cream. This cream is then packaged in aluminium tins, which come in a variety of limited editions styles with funky eye catching designs for individual people.
It is a daily...
Last weekend I spent my time at Lartington Hall meeting brides. During this time one of the main requests I received from the brides is that they felt make-up needs to look flawless with delicate approach to colour.
I wanted to share with you some of the images of a look I created with this approach in mind and the products I used.
In keeping with the delicate colours of the flowers, décor and the venue I wanted to keep a peachy hue with the makeup but add a black eyeliner for a hint of drama. For the eyeliner it was kept quite thick and heavy as opposed to the obvious winged cat flick eyeliner...
It was a very proud moment for me to be on not one but two front covers of Belle Bridal Magazine.
For this photoshoot I used makeup by Sukin Skincare and Inika Organic

I was excited to receive the Hand Soaps in the post by Ecosoapia. An award winning product for “Natural Product” award this is the way forward to support our envoirnment. I was also pleased to hear that it has been passed down from 3 generations of soap makers.
On my first impression I loved the design of the labels by calligrapher David Smith of both the Lavender and the Sicillian Orange. The design is simply gorgeous with an eye catching gold design with a hint of Victorian design.
I have tried both soaps, Lavender for my bathroom and the Sicillian Orange for the kitchen. ...
I wanted to share with you some more work I created whilst in NYC for PRATT Institute Lookbooks.
These images are taken on “film camera” and I love the black and white concept and the style captured by photographer Tom Kennedy.
