Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation

At the beginning of the year I wrote about my love of the prospect of a Kjaer Weis foundation. Now four months down the line, a few shopping trips and quite a few make-ups later, I have had plenty of time to play and have decided it was high time to share my thoughts...

Behind The Brand: Kure Bazaar

Question: What do have potato, cotton and wood pulp have in common?

Top Five: Blue Eyeshadow

For many blue eyeshadow reeks of the 1980's, of first forays into make-up and of ancient Yardley wearing relatives. Blue has hardly had the best of track records when it comes to adorning the lids so I can understand if you are a little dubious when I say that blue is back...

Ilia Beauty Lipstick: Neon Angel

One of the great things about spring/summer beauty is the emergence of vibrant shades. I am a big lipstick fan but over the past few years I have fallen prey to the practical, low maintanence charms of tinted balms (Hurraw! balms usually). On a night out I am usually seen wearing a dark or red lip, but of late I have (for probably the first time in my life) been rocking the brights and loving it!

Josie Maran: Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée

For many years I primarily used powder blush both personally and in my kit; primarily because there was a distinct lack of variety in both product and colour choice in any other genre of cheek product.

So now I pose the question - When is a cream blush not a cream blush..?

Top Five: Eyeliner Brushes

Last year I began a series on my Top five brushes for this, that and the other. For one reason or another I took a break from the brush posts but I have decided to get the ball rolling again and pick up where I left off - with the eyes. This month its all about lining...

Education, Education

Make-up is ever evolving and I am a big believer in the old adage you never stop learning. I am always looking to update existing skills, learn new techniques and find out more about products and brands. This week I had an education double bubble and took part in two training sessions - on the same day!
