Last week I got the chance to have a play with a brand I've never used before, Diego Dalla Palma, so I've decided to write a short review of I felt about each piece too share with you. I was super excited to dive into the products from this company as I know they are reputed for being the intersection between scientific expertise and modern Italian glamour. This along with being a brand that is certified free from animal testing I thought what could there possibly be not to love. Overall whilst not everything was to my liking, a lot of it was and I'm excited to use the products more in the future!
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.

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...
I wanted to have a “healthy look” on the skin during the lead up to the autumnal months ahead. I created this look for some of my latest work with photographer Rebecca Elizabeth Tate and hairdresser James Reid
Firstly I covered the skin in a superb night time oil called Superskin Concentrate by Liz Earle to create this overall healthy look and glow.
