I have another editorial out with the awesome Alice Fisher. This time, you can see the whole story over at Sicky Magazine.

As always, I prepped skin using my favourite Balance Me products. For the makeup, it was all about the Nars. The star product of the day was Iceland eyeshadow duo which helped to create the iridescent sheen over Lotta’s eyelids.

For hair, I prepped it using Lee Stafford Poker Straight Heat Protection Mist, went through Lotta’s gorgeous locks with my straighteners and finished off with Lee Stafford Poker Straight Shine Mist.

Balance Me super toning

IMAG1205 (3)

My obsession with Balance Me continues. I don’t seem to be able to get enough of the stuff. Most recently, I’ve become completely addicted to the Super Toning range. First of all, the smells are *to die for*. Every time someone walks into my house they always comment on the yummy smell coming from my room. It’s this! The fragrance is a blend of juniper, bergamot, geranium and lavender essential oils. Yummmmmmm. It’s just the right balance of fresh and cosy. My favourite. I also love that it’s packed with hyaluronic acid, iris root and corn poppy extract. It’s all these lovely things that help to plump the skin back up and keep it looking more youthful. I am convinced it’s already helped reduce the look of cellulite on the tops of my legs! They’re also supposed to help boost your circulation. For someone, like me, that’s on their feet all day, this will definitely be a saviour!

I’ve been using the body lotion in the day and the oil at night before I go to bed. It makes me deliriously happy and I’m pretty sure this is going to be my routine for the foreseeable future.

When I last when shopping I picked up a few other delicious Balance Me bits so definitely watch this space. They don’t disappoint!!

Elegant Touch Trend Collection

Elegant Touch

 

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!

Ralph Lauren Abbey Road Presentation

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??

Burt’s Buzzy Bees

20140423

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.

You can get your Burt’s Bees here.

Kiko Storage

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!!!

You can check out more Kiko storage here.
