I prepped Ewwelina’s skin using Balance Me Cleanse And Smooth Face Balm followed by Wonder Eye Cream and Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF 25.
Brows, eyes and cheeks were all done using MAC Pro.

I’m loving these new Elegant Touch nails! They’re the perfect shades and patterns for summer. The fact that they’re a UV Gel nail that you can quickly press on makes them perfect. Long lasting but super quick and easy to apply. What more could you ask for?? I really want to try one of the studded sets out for a shoot soon!

Yesterday I got to be part of the super fun makeup team for a Ralph Lauren presentation. Even more fun, it was being held at Abbey Road Studios so we got to spend the day surrounded by amazing music history!
As always, the look was very fresh and clean. However, this season, we gave a nod to the sixties vibe of the collection by sweeping a wash of dove grey over the lids, lined the lower waterline with a flesh toned pencil and gave top and bottom lashes a lengthening coat of mascara. The complexion was brightened up with some bronzer and lips were given a flush of rosy pink to keep the look youthful.
Hair was blow dried straight then given a super polish using straighteners.
Are you ready for a mod-style Spring??

I love bees. They’re so buzzy and do so many amazing things for our planet. Having a little buzzy, nourishing beeswax in my kit is pretty awesome as well. This selection of tinted lip conditioners, lip shines and glosses are some of my clients’ favourite goodies.
The skinny, yellow tubes are lip shimmers. These pack a lot more colour than you’d expect and give a gorgeously soft shimmer to your lips.
The fat, brown tubes are a more traditional lip tint. These are super conditioning and give the faintest hint of colour.
The tubes with the brown lid are a gloss with a super pretty pearly finish. I like these worn on their own for a rich colour that’s brilliantly wearable any time of day or night.
The tubes with the clear lid are lip shines. These come in some amazingly pretty colours and are really sheer. On their own they give lips a beautiful gloss and layered over a lipstick they intensify any of your favourite lip colours.

I was in Kiko recently and discovered some of their ace storage solutions. This small makeup case is perfect for my manicure kit. It’s a super durable bag with a strong zip and it’s nice and compact whilst fitting all my tools in there with room to spare. It was a bargain as well.
Then there are the empty bottles. This one was perfect for decanting some of my giant bottle of hand sanitizer into. Anything that makes my kit lighter and smaller is a definite win!!!

Funny story. When I went to the launch event for these products, I was asked if I ever suffer from dry skin. I replied that I'm lucky and have very normal skin. A couple of days later my regular body lotion and night time face moisturiser ran out. Suddenly I was a husk of a woman. I totally forgot that I totally have dry skin! It's just that I've had the perfect products to keep it at bay for so long! Lucky me! I'm not going to lie, those products are premium price ones as well. These gorgeous Dove products couldn't have come to me with better timing.

I've blogged here many times before about how much I love Dr Lewinn's Renunail Nail Strengthener. It's like a magic potion for amazing nails. So much so that I find myself getting annoyed at how often I need to file them down because they get so long so quickly! In my line of work, I find long nails a touch irritational.
I digress... Dr Lewinn listened to all the things people loved about the original and has come out with the perfect product. Coloured varnishes with the built in action of the original nail strenthener! Hooray! There are five colours all together and a gorgeous 3D topcoat. The colours are all wearbable but classicly modern at the same time. I have the Pomegranate and Black Plum shades. The Pomegranate is a gorgeous pink-toned red that would look terrific on anyone as well as with pretty much any outfit.
You'll be able to get these from Dr Lewinn's from mid June. I'm pretty sure you're going to fall in love with them straight away.
