So many people still don’t use a brush to put their foundation on. It’s not wrong, really. But what’s the reason for not doing? Many think it’s quicker to use fingers, don’t have time to be messing around with a brush, or generally don’t have a clue which foundation brush to select from the 5628471 […]

King Kylie, Instagram tells me she’s called these days. The 18 year old with 51 million followers, a flawless face, her own makeup range, lip fillers, zillions of dollars and a worldwide copied style….The Midas Touch comes to mind. Am I jealous? Fascinated? Disgusted? Should I be leaping in to a long, mindnumbing preach about […]

I do a lot of 1-1 lessons….with the obvious intent to teach people all about makeup, great products and foolproof techniques. Yet week-in-week-out, I am continuously SHOCKED by 2 things. 1, some of the unbelievable high-street products my clients present me with. 2, my dreadful snobbery towards high-street brands. Granted, during these lessons, I have a bin […]

Kim K, notorious for chiselled cheekbones & flawless makeup. Me, not so notorious, nor so chiselled in the cheekbone department. Being pale, fair, blonde and blue eyed…I’d say me and Kim are pretty much polar opposites. However, I do believe we have one thing in common; we are both fully aware of the power of […]
