benefit they

    I love eyeliner and and been dying to try Benefit They’re Real! Push Up Liner.  I’d read so much about it: it’s a matte black gel formula with a ‘pen’ that makes it easy to get close to the lash line. I was most curious to find out if it really didn’t smudge or dry out asContinue reading


Every girl loves long lashes, I just didn’t realize that Eylure had been making lashes since 1947. I’ve always found it a bit difficult to put false eyelashes on by myself which is why Eylure has created several solutions for that. They offer a petite selection so I no longer have to trim the lashContinue reading


In just four years Bath in Fashion has become a very successful and popular event. The catwalk shows are always sold out. This season I had over 200 looks for one of the fashion shows so we had a very busy backstage but fortunately I had a great team as all my dressers were secondContinue reading


The last thing I want any time of year, least of all during London Fashion Week is to catch a cold or the sniffles, but since I’m surrounded by people who are doing all-nighters and working themselves to extreme limits you know you have to take care of yourself. Head Makeup Artist Lan Nguyen-Grealis recommendsContinue reading


Some cows have beautiful eyelashes.

I love the retro powder room. These images are from One Whitehall Place, The Royal Horseguards Hotel. The chaise long, the mirrors and the vanity desks give you the impression that you’re in a time forgotten or a film set and you just want to have dramatic event or intense girly conversation like Marilyn MonroeContinue reading


For every fashion show there is always a hair and make up test. It’s important to see how the whole look comes together. You usually have a moodboard that inspired the designer’s collection and you might also have a separate moodboard for hair and makeup. The right hair and make up can change everything soContinue reading

I’ve always been a fan of No Doubt so I’m looking forward to their next album, Rock Steady. it should be out in the next few months! Their first album ‘No Doubt’ came out in 1992 and they haven’t released an album since 2001 but have been working on this one since 2008 with aContinue reading

I didn’t grow up riding a horse but recently I did a shoot on a farm and I couldn’t stop admiring this horse’s white eyelashes.

Cherry blossoms in London. I like wearing pink lipstick by Shu Uemura on Sundays Ice cream in St. James’ Park Sunday Girl by Blondie.

I love makeup but don’t usually like shopping for it and I often rely on the makeup artists that I work with for their advice and suggestions. This time I just wanted to venture out on my own so I thought I’d pay Illamasqua on Beak Street a visit. The staff was very helpful andContinue reading

Spring means colour so don’t be afraid of getting rid of your liquid eyeliner and adding a bit of colour. Check out the next issue of Fashion.Music.Style – it’s out in March.  

This season I was able to see quite a few shows at the Old Sorting Office by My Beautiful City. I really enjoyed Henry Holland’s show, it was so fun and upbeat, and you felt like you could wear so many pieces in the collection. Love the red lips with a hint of pink!

  A few nights ago, I was invited to the opening of a new NYC flagship store for ultra cool cosmetic company NARS. The new store is located at 413 Bleecker Street. It’s a great area for a shop to be placed in Manhattan as its on the same street as Marc Jacobs and SexContinue reading

I’m so excited for MAC’s Wonder Woman collection! Showcasing  4 gorgeous lipsticks including its iconic Russian Red  plus Marquise d’ (cream peach), Spitfire  (bright magenta) & Heroine (vibrant bronze). The packaging and advertisements for this new range are so fun. I remember as a little girl thinking Linda Carter, the actress who played Wonder WomanContinue reading

  Lately I’ve noticed a little beauty movement happening from Harpers Bazaar to Louis Vuitton’s latest ad campaign…it’s makeup with disco flavour! Big metallic eyes, lashes that are curled with thick mascara left spiky and layers upon layers of red shimmer lip gloss that’s practically dripping off the lips. I’m totally riding on the metallicContinue reading

I’m feeling peachy-keen on Emma Stone’s look from the Golden Globe Awards ceremony. She’s s starring in the upcoming “Spider-Man 4″ film. The actress looked gorgeous in her Calvin Klein dress and coordinating peachy makeup. I’m a big fan of a tangerine toned blush and the wonders that it can do for a girl andContinue reading

How about giving a gift of pampering this festive season? LUSH have some super limited edition holiday products. I admit, the aromas and smells inside a LUSH store can sometimes be a little over powering but the products themselves are good enough to eat. There’s nothing more relaxing than a hot bath after a longContinue reading

The London College of Fashion celebrated the launch of The Body Shop’s new collection ‘Brush With Fashion‘ cruelty-free make-up for Spring 2011. William Tempest and JENA.THEO (both LCF graduates) provided the garments for the fashion show at The London College of Fashion yesterday …and naturally, there were cupcakes (and champagne) to be had! Illustrator andContinue reading

Today I learned that mascara has now replaced lipstick as the #1 makeup product that women purchase. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only woman in the world with a mascara obsession. It was chemist TL Williams who created the first mascara for his sister Mabel.. Which later on became the mega cosmeticContinue reading
