A Makeup Artist’s Guide To Blemish Free Skin

Having worked as a makeup artist for nearly the last seven years, I have definitely come across all kinds of skin types and conditions along my way. Generally when I have a booking it’s for a special event such as a school ball or wedding, and of course the person sitting in the chair in front of me wants me to make them look their absolute best. What a lot

Skincare Switch Up To Witch!

Switching up my skincare routine is often a scary thought for me- in previous experiences I have always had a break out or two as my skin adapts to the change. Recently after feeling quite run down, my skin had a bit of a hissy fit, so I figured if I was to try out any new products the best time would be now. I normally use all Dermalogica products

Superstart your day with Elizabeth Arden

Serum’s are a product many love, but also something many don’t know the benefits of. For me skin care is everything, there’s nothing better than awakening your skin every morning with products that get to work from the get go.

Face Mapping with Dermalogica

Face mapping is where the Dermalogica Skin Therapist puts on a almost

The Girl On The Go

  A typical day for me begins at 6.15am, I am up to the sound of my alarm either that,or my cat whinging her butt off then it’s into the shower I go. My morning routine Monday to Friday is actually pretty boring, I laze around in my dressing gown for about an hour whilst I have my Fruit Smoothie for breakfast,then it’s onto Makeup & Hair.  My Makeup style for

To be quite Frank ♥

A couple of months back I was kindly sent some products by Frank Body to try from their new Skincare range. Being the fussy person that I am, I was a little nervous to try this range out as I am a sucker for sticking to mainly the same things when it comes to my skin.

Exfoliate Scrub By Miss Bliss – Review

Coffee Scrubs have been a favourite of mine for a while now and I often mix it up between brands. But with it now being the middle of Winter, the bottles of used fake tan are mounting up and so is the tan left on my skin. Exfoliating your bod is super important, especially when it comes to creating the best base possible for your tanning products to sit on.

Turn your skin around with Clinique

For the last couple of months now, I have been using a the “Turnaround” skincare range from Clinique. As most of you would know if you have been following me from day 1, I generally use to stick to the same products,which at the time were from the Michael Todd True Organics Range. Now I still do use their cleanser and scrub but hydration wise I have now completely switched

Lads vs Skincare – The Round up

Well well well, it’s been a couple of months now and the boys have well and truly gotten into the routine of looking after their skin with Dermalogica. When it comes to trying out new skincare products it takes a good month to really let your skin adjust and show it’s true results.
