It’s starting to feel cooler and it’s definitely autumn, and I like to be cosy. You might not think of me as a flannel-pyjama-wearing kind of girl, but I am – and I’m picky about how soft the flannel is. Most of my pyjamas come from John Lewis but this was the first time I…Continue reading

Do you have what it takes? So this week I am feeling a little frazzled to say the least, all the travelling for Britian’s Next Top Model, while keeping up with my other makeup jobs during the week has left me a little exhausted. No bank holiday for this makeup artist, I was working all…Continue reading

We went up to Manchester the night before our  show – with the bank holiday weekend and all the train diversions it was just the simplest thing to do. Fashion is never as glamorous as it looks – it’s our job to make it look fabulous! My call time is 8am. We all leave the…Continue reading

I can’t figure out if it’s okay to grab a mannequin by the breasts or neck. The breasts are actually very well placed and they’re the safest handles to use when grabbing the mannequin from behind and twisting the mannequin’s torso to remove it from the legs, yet it feels a little inappropriate…and twisting the…Continue reading

This is an unretouched picture of Jessica Alba and on the right is the final version for Campari shot by Mario Testino. Everyone always seems so surprised that photos are retouched but a photo is really just a raw image. Even still life images, mannequin and food shots are retouched. Digital enhancement is a one…Continue reading

I really like Katie Price, aka Jordan from her glamour days. Some UK celebrities work so hard at being celebrities that you just can’t help but respect their work ethic! She’s now come out with an equestrian line, which has equestrian clothing for women and (I love this)…horsewear! Horse and Hound magazine reports that her…Continue reading
