So I did it, I shot my first beauty vlog for you guys, now uploaded to YouTube. I've always been passionate about hair and beauty (as you can tell from this post HERE) and after working with brands I love on camera including most recently bareMinerals Charlotte Tilbury for Selfridges and L'Oreal Paris UK, I thought it was time I shared my current day make up look!
I was just over on Youtube as I will soon be uploading my first beauty vlog for you all when I spotted this previously unseen clip of me from the recent bareMinerals shoot I featured in for the brand.
I am often asked about my skincare routine and although I'll be covering this in upcoming beauty vlogs I thought I'd share some of my kind, gentle must-have's that I love for my skin.
A month ago saw me being commissioned to join a group of ab-fab bloggers Ella of La Petite Anglaise, Rosie from Cider with Rosie, Catherine of Not Dressed as Lamb and Ambarina of Beauty Passionista) to undergo a bareMinerals make over and discuss the beauty label's new and exciting bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation for a film on their site.
Here you'll find my current edit of beautiful, beautification products I honestly can't live without right now. From eyelash lengthening liquid to bronzing cream to keep my pins golden post-Cannes, these stunning products will soon become your must-haves too.
When it comes to styling my hair, I'm regularly asked what I use ( I'm truly touched by the interest and lovely comments I receive on my locks on twitter) and my hairstyle seems to be becoming synonymous with my brand... so here's a post on what helps my hair look it's glossy best!
Ironic that just aged 33 (last Saturday to be precise), the concealer I reach for to hide the ever darkening under eye circles post 2 kids, would be something I discovered (and clearly didn't need) aged 18: Max Factor's Pan Stik.
I was sent Seventeen's Lip Lustre* in the light coral colour titled 3 Little Words recently to use and review.
Urban Decay Naked Palette is the bestselling, must-have collection of gorgeous eye shadows that I was lucky enough to receive from two of my great friends for my birthday in November. I simply adore this set.
Tuesday Beauty Spot: Talika Lipocils Expert Mythical Eyelash Conditioning Gel (for longer, natural lashes)
Would you like naturally longer, darker and curlier lashes? If like me, you can't stand the semi permanent Hollywood Lashes (I actually ripped mine off after spending £80 along with most of my lashes), then this product is for you.
Those who know me are well aware of my obsession with achieving the perfect brow (any day now). Brows frame your face. That my friend, is fact. They can also transform your visage for good or for bad (too thin can age, too thick and carpet world will be asking for their samples back).
My nails are simply crying out, "No more Shellac". They're tired, dry and flaking and I need to listen to their whimpers (OK this analogy has reached breaking point) nearly- excuse the pun. Now is the time for Jessica Critical Care to step in.
Those who know me, erm, know I like a BIG blow dry. When I can't make it to the salon, I swear by Moroccanoil (everything) and in particular for curly girl's dream do's: Morrocan Oil Curl Defining Mousse.
It's that time again where I share my new hot beauty and pampering favourites. Enjoy!
M to the O, where've you been all my life? I actually heard about this product yonks ago when it was recommended by a make up artist on a shoot I was on, but I've only just bought it now and WOW, this antioxidant infused oil improved my mane instantly restoring bounce and shine folks-for reals!
