every day make up look

My First Beauty Vlog

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!

New Clip from the bareMinerals Beauty Film Shoot

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.

My Natural Skincare Routine

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.

Featuring in a Film for bareMinerals

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.

Styling my Hair-What I Use

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!

The Best Concealer in the World? Max Factor Pan Stik

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.

Tuesday Beauty Spot: Benefit’s Brow Zings Brow Shaping Kit

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).

Tuesday Beauty Spot: Jessica Critical Care

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.

Tuesday Beauty Spot: Moroccanoil Curl Defining Mousse

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.
