Posted by & filed under The Makeup.

In Wednesday’s video I promised I’d throw all my new Charlotte Tilbury purchases on my face along with the bits I already had and feedback my thoughts on a 100% C.T base, so here it is… I guess the first first step in Tilbury’s base routine would be a healthy dollop of her Magic Cream… Read more »

The MAC & Charlotte Tilbury Haul

Posted by & filed under The Video.

I’d been lusting after some Charlotte Tilbury bits and bobs for the longest time. Sure, I love her eyeliners and eyeshadows and her lipsticks are good’uns too – but I hadn’t tried much of her complexion stuff aside from the foundation (again, which I think rocks).

Posted by & filed under The Video.

While I was in Paris this week, I lugged along my camera and tripod in my luggage so I could get my film-on in the hotel room and this is the result; part one of a little Get Ready With Me/Get Un-Ready With Me thing, the second part of which will be up in a… Read more »

Why I Love Makeup

Posted by & filed under The Weekend Post.

It’s been a while since I snuggled up with my laptop, put fingertips to keyboard and tapped out a bit of a longwinded and rambly post round these parts, so today I thought I’d do exactly that and get into the nitty gritty of why I love makeup… ‘Some people collect stamps, I collect lipsticks‘… Read more »
