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...

I am thrilled to see my latest work on the front cover of a luxury magazine called La Di Da.
The shoot was arranged by myself and a talented up and coming photographer Rebecca Elizabeth Tate. We wanted to create an autumnal feel to the shoot to involve all aspects from the colour of the hair to the choice of make-up.
Hope you enjoy these images and I have given you some ideas on wearing some vibrant colours during these dreary grey winter months.
Contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any further information on the make-up I have used.

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 some...
In my previous weekly blogs I have talked about my one to one make-up lessons that I offer to clients.
I really wanted to share with you my experience with a client whom I met for a one to one make-up lesson recently.
When I met this lovely lady she was so nervous and shy as she explained she didn’t bring her make-up bag with her as she didn’t own one and had never worn make-up ever…. my client is 58!
So my first question was why now? What has changed? How do you want the make-up to look and feel?
She replied “it is my daughter's wedding this year and also I feel that now at...
