The Tuesday Tip: How To Remove Too Much Blush


If you ever go blush crazy and end up looking more clown that cute, fear not! There is a very simple way of fixing the problem without having to redo your entire makeup.

If you overdose on powder blush, dust some loose translucent powder over your cheeks to diffuse the colour. On the other hand, if cream blush is to blame, tone it down by sponging the tiniest amount of liquid foundation over the top.

Christmas Shopping At The O2 Centre


Let's be honest, Christmas shopping is stressful. Stores are usually so packed with people throughout December that you'll be lucky if you can buy one thing without going insane. So when it comes to getting gifts, I tend to stay clear of the shops and go online. However I recently discovered a shopping destination perfect for people who dread Christmas shopping; the O2 Centre on Finchley Road.

Filled with shops, restaurants, hair salons and a cinema, the O2 Centre has everything needed to keep you relaxed when you shop and entertained when you stop. It is spacious and light and contains a small number of great stores, including Waterstones, Paperchase, Oliver Bonas and Tiger. It is also a shopping haven for home-lovers as BoConcept, Habitat and Homebase are also found in there!

Beauty-full Stocking


My favourite thing about Christmas are the stockings. I fucking love them; I love getting them, I love pulling present from them and I really love gifting them. So you won't be surprised to hear I've put together an edit of this year's best beauty stocking fillers...

Grooming: Christmas Gifts For The Guys


With the grooming industry ever growing, there are a huge number of gifts available for the true metrosexual man this Christmas. Here are some of my favourites...

Starting with the Aesop Perseus skincare set (£60.00 aesop.com). Aesop is a brand known for marrying cutting-edge technology with long-established scientific practices to create exceptional skincare products....much like the ones found in the Perseus skincare set. The serviceable tin box contains a trio of some of Aesop's favourite formulations, including the Fabulous Face Cleanser 100ml, Moroccan Neroli Post-Shave Lotion 60ml and Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser 200ml; everyday essentials that any guy would love to be gifted.

Christmas Gifts For The Girls


Christmas is fast approaching, so there isn't much time left to get gifting! Luckily I've been compiling some of the best presents to gift us girls to this year...

Starting with the gorgeous Elie Saab Le Parfum Eau de Parfum 50ml (£58.00 Boots). Featuring top notes of orange blossom, middle notes of jasmine and base notes of white honey, cedar, rose and patchouli, this fragrance is floral, feminine and intoxicating. It also packs a lot of power, so it is not a scent for the subtle girls; it is strong and intense and lasts for hours. Elie Saab Le Parfum is a classic fragrance that deserves a spot on any girl's dressing table.

Wednesday Wisdom: Sylvia Plath

“I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet”

I'm Dreaming Of A Cult Christmas


"What beauty products do you think are the best?" is one of the most common questions I get asked and it usually comes from beauty-virgins or beauty-beginners looking for guidance. But this question recently got me thinking...what do you gift girls who are new to the beauty scene? Well only one thing came to mind...cult classics. The world is blessed with some amazing beauty products and if I could carry these cult beauty classics around with me 24/7, on the off chance I get washed up on a desert island, I would! So if you are considering gifting a girl who doesn't know her AHAs from her illuminators, I would recommend the below...

Christmas Beauty Crackers 2015


Crackers are one of my many favourite Christmas traditions. They make the table look beautiful and are a fun addition to a festive feast, however they are often filled with crappy gifts you'll never use. Luckily great beauty brands and iconic department stores have started creating crackers that are not only gorgeous but full of amazing gifts. So I've picked my favourite beauty crackers to share with you, ranging from affordable to luxury...

Deck The Halls With Beauty Baubles


Each year Christmas beauty baubles get better. These decorations are adorable, affordable and packed full of some of our favourite beauty buys, making them a perfect stocking filler or secret santa present!

One of the best Christmas beauty baubles this year is the Melvita Christmas Treats Bauble (£15.00 melvita.com). This beautiful bauble contains some of Melvita's most loved products. Inside you'll find the Damask Rose Floral Water 25ml, a gorgeous hydrating spritz that can be used to rejuvenate skin and set makeup, the L'Or Bio Extraordinary Oil 17ml, which nourishes and protects the skin and the L'Argan Bio Velvet Hand Cream 30ml, which hydrates and protects the hands perfectly during the cold winter months.

Weekly Worship: DKNY, Kiehl's & REN


DKNY Be Desired

Price: £69.00 / $88.00 100ml

Stockists: John Lewis / dkny.com

DKNY's Be Desired is a fragrance classic that I have recently fallen back in love with. Containing top notes of grapefruit, orange, blackcurrant and violet leaf, middle notes of Turkish rose, jasmine, cassis and black locust and bottom notes of cedar, cashmere wood and amberwood, this fresh, floral and fruity fragrance smells absolutely divine.

Be Desired is a super feminine fragrance that is pretty and delicate...but also powerful. The eau de parfum lasts for hours after application and only two or three spritzes are needed to make an impact!

Win: Clinique For Men Sonic System Cleansing Brush & Cleanser

Clinique For Men-Sonic-System-Cleansing Brush-Review

If there is one brand that masters male skincare, it is Clinique. The brand's men's range is full of everything a metrosexual man needs to stay gorgeous; from eye creams and face bronzers to scrubs and dark spot correctors.

One of the best Clinique products for men is the Sonic System Cleansing Brush. Much like the oh-so-popular Clarisonic, this sonic system is designed to deeply cleanse and exfoliate the skin. However it also offers some additional extras; antimicrobial technology to keep the bristles clean, a tilted head for accessing hard to reach areas and two tiers of bristles - a top section with firm dark grey bristles that deeply clean pores and a bottom section with light grey bristles for use on cheeks and sensitive areas of the face.

Grooming: Dunhill ICON Absolute Review

The Price: £90.00 100ml

The Stockist: Harrods

The Review: Before I get on to the fragrance itself, it's important to discuss the Dunhill ICON Absolute's amazing bottle. Created by renowned designer Mark Eisen, the gold cylinder bottle features a engine turning pattern that pays homage to Dunhill’s automotive origins. It is undoubtedly the most stylish fragrance bottle I have ever laid eyes on.

Review: Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Frenzy


The Promise: "Create lips that look full and glossy, without feeling sticky with this liquid lipstick"

The Colour: Hot fuschia pink

The Price: £17.50 7ml

The Stockist: illamasqua.com

The Application: The Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss applies like an absolute dream. The thin brush applicator and creamy texture enable the gloss to glide onto the lips easily with precision. The consistency is thin enough to not clump or go tacky and thick enough to stay in place. It is also tasteless and scentless which, to some lip gloss lovers, is a huge benefit.

News: Urban Decay Launch Gwen Stefani Palette


No one creates eye shadow palettes quite like Urban Decay, so you can understand why I lost my s**t when I discovered UD had collaborated with Gwen Stefani to create its latest one!

This hella good palette features 15 new eye shadow colours; three of Gwen's favourite shades from the original Urban Decay collection and 12 brand new colours. As with all Urban Decay Palettes, Gwen's features neutral shades, jewel tones, highlighters, base colours, shimmers, sparkles and everything in between! My favourite shades include Danger, a deep metallic royal blue with a hint of sparkle, Pop, a sparkling champagne pink, Punk, a matte reddish-brown and Baby, a metallic rose.

The Tuesday Tip: Egg White Face Lift!


If you ever find yourself in need of a temporary non-surgical face lift, look no further than your kitchen because eggs are the way forward!

Egg whites work wonders at tightening pores, so when they are applied to the face they give it an instant lift. To achieve the 'Egg White Face Lift' you just take one egg and separate it, whisk the egg white until it becomes nice and frothy and then apply it all over your face and neck. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Voilà!

Grooming: L'Oréal Men Expert Skin & Stubble Purifying Wash Review


The Promise: "The Skin & Stubble Purifying Wash eliminates dirt and pollution from face, stubble and beard area. It leaves skin feeling instantly refreshed and energised and conditions and softens facial hair".

The Price: £6.35 150ml

The Stockist: Boots

The Application: The Skin & Stubble Purifying Wash has a creamy-gel consistancy that foams when worked into the skin with water. Because of its lathering effect, only a small amount of product is required per use. The Purifying Wash also has a refreshing scent, partially due to the inclusion of peppermint extract; an ingredient that also provides a nice cooling sensation to the skin. The facial wash also rinses away really easily - one swipe with a flannel and it is gone completely, without leaving a sticky or tight feeling on the skin.

Faithful Four: Fall Fragrances


Fall has always been my favourite season, so finding a good fragrance to wear during these cold, crisp and colourful months is essential. This year's fall fragrance edit consists of old classics and new launches; the first being the new Michael Kors Rose Radiant Gold 30ml (£33.50 Boots / $58.00 michaelkors.com). Containing notes of sparkling spice, rich florals and subtle musks, this eau de parfum, created by one of America's most loved brands, makes a big statement. Its beautiful feminine fragrance lingers for hours after application and attracts a lot of attention. Every time I apply this scent, someone without fail will ask me what I'm wearing.

The Tuesday Tip: Budget Brow Lift


By now you are probably very familiar with the standard eyebrow lifting trick. You know, the one where you apply highlighter under the arch of the eyebrow to make eyebrows appear higher and eyes look brighter. Well you can actually lift the brow even more by applying highlighter above the brow!

All you need to do is blend a tiny amount of highlighter above the eyebrows - just past the arch. You can use any type of highlighter, however I am obsessed with the Illamasqua's Gleam in Aurora (£22.00 illamasqua.com / $24.90 beautybay.com). It is an ultra lightweight cream highlighter that provides the most gorgeous champagne shimmer. It blends perfectly and looks amazing on every skin tone!

Ingredients: Lemon


Natural or Synthetic: Natural

Origin: A lemon is a citrus fruit that comes from a lemon tree

Location: Lemon trees are native to Asia, however they are now cultivated all over the world, from the United States and China, to Mexico and Italy.

Beauty Benefits: Lemon is often found in beauty products because it is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that improve our skin, hair and nails. The hero ingredient is most famous for its exfoliation properties. As with many citrus fruits, lemons contain alpha hydroxy acids that gently remove dead skin cells (stimulating surface skin cell renewal) and treat pigmentation. Lemons also have astringent, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that deeply clean the skin and remove excess oil, without stripping the skin. For these reasons, lemons are a great ingredient for fighting acne and blackheads.

The Tuesday Tip: Get Maximum Moisture


Achieving maximum moisture isn't always easy. There are times when, no matter how many creams or serums you apply, your skin doesn't seem to absorb moisture, let alone retain it! Luckily there is one ingredient you can always depend on to hydrate and moisturise the skin. I'm talking about honey...

Review: Sisley So Intense Eyeliner


The Promise: "So Intense Eyeliner is a felt-tip eyeliner that delivers an intense black line for an instantly beautified look. It does not dry out the eyelids and provides maximum comfort throughout the day".

The Price: £39.00 / $70.00

The Stockist: sisley-paris.com / sisley-paris.com/us

The Shades: Black

The Application: Lining the eyes is easy with the Sisley So Intense Eyeliner - well, as easy as applying liquid eyeliner can be - thanks to its felt tip applicator. This eyeliner pen has a thick base with a pointed tip, enabling you to create thin and thick wings and flicks with ease. I would highly recommend this eyeliner to beginners.


The So Intense Eyeliner's pointed tip enables you to work the colour deep into the lash line. It is quick drying, doesn't drag on the skin and is so highly pigmented that only one coat is needed per application; an important quality for eyeliners with this high a price tag.

The Tuesday Tip: Make Hair Smell Amazing For Longer


A good quality shampoo and conditioner can leave hair smelling amazing, however if you want your locks to smell luxurious for longer, you'll have to make like Miranda Kerr and reach for a fragrance. The Australian supermodel is known for spraying her favourite perfume on her hair. "I like to spritz on the ends of my hair, and also on my clothing before I get dressed - just a little spritz on my clothing. It's a subtle way when you enter the room for people to feel your presence, but not be overwhelmed by it".

Now, if you suffer from dry ends, you may want to avoid spraying perfume directly onto the hair, as most perfumes contain alcohol that will dry out your hair. Instead, spray your favourite perfume onto a hair brush and then brush your hair as you normally would. Voilà!

The Price: £26.00 100ml

The Stockist: clinique.co.uk

The Skin Type: Suitable for all skin types but great for those with dry skin

The Application: The Moisture Surge Melting Mask Balm has a solid consistency that turns buttery smooth the second it comes into contact with the skin. Once melted, it applies quickly, gliding over the skin effortlessly. Unlike other masks, it absorbs into the skin almost completely and doesn't need to be rinsed off; you just remove any excess product with a tissue.

Review: Illamasqua Equinox Collection


I couldn't have been more excited to review the Illamasqua Equinox collection. Inspired by a "desert at night, engulfed by the starry skies and the constellations of the universe above", the mystic collection features rich broken golds, deep burnished hues and glittering pigments that suit all skin tones.

The new five-piece collection includes a gold liquid eyeliner, eyeshadow palette, red lipstick, pearlescent metallic nail polish and a pair of false eyelashes. I got my claws into three Equinox products and used two of them to create the look below. Here are my thoughts on each...


Broken Gold (£18.50) is a gold liquid eyeliner designed for creating metallic accents on the eyes. It is highly pigmented, super shimmery and stays put longer than most liquid eyeliners! It creates a gorgeous shattered gold effect that can be worn alone or layered over other shadows. Although it's designed for application around the eye area, Broken Gold also looks great on the lips...if you're feeling brave!

Weekly Worship: Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate


Price: £36.00 / $46.00

Stockists: kiehls.co.uk / Barneys

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil is such a cult product, that you'd think Kiehl's would have a hard time producing another oil as impressive. However it has, and it is called Daily Reviving Concentrate.

The Daily Reviving Concentrate is designed to fight daily oxidative stress and free radical damage to the skin, which not only causes immediate skin problems but also leads to premature ageing over time. The new oil is formulated with ginger root oil, which contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and protect skin, sunflower seed oil, which increase skin hydration and Tamanu oil, which locks in moisture.

Review: Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Matte Temper


The Price: £15.50

The Stockist: urbandecay.co.uk

The Shade: Orange-red

The Application: The Matte Revolution Lipstick is rich and creamy and feels like butter on the lips. This is because it's formulated with ingredients such as avocado oil, olive oil, shea butter and vitamin E, which help to nourish and protect the lips. Because of these great ingredients, the lipstick applies easily and does not drag on the lips, which is rare for a matte lipstick. As for colour, the lipstick is so highly pigmented that one coat is enough to completely cover the lips.
