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


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.

Dove DermaSeries

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.

Anyone with dry skin will know how much drama goes into finding the right product. Something that will deeply hydrate without leaving you greasy, sitting on top of your skin or breaking your bank account. Enter Dove Dermaseries. These have been designed to be all the things you want. Lightweight, affordable and effective. 

The secret ingredient is 12-HSA. This 12-HSA works at the deepest level of the skin to help it retain moisture twice as well as commonly used ingredients. Fancy, right!?

I've been using the cleanser in the shower and it does a brilliant job of leaving my face clean but without a dry or tight feeling. The fragrance isn't exactly an explosion of aromatherapy wonderment, but I think it's perfect as a unisex product that's appropriate for every member of the family. The packaging is really lovely, simple and stylish as well.

Everyone's favourite, the Dove bar makes an appearance in the range as well. It has even higher levels of moisturiser in there and is completely soap free. Perfect for the shower!!!

My favourite is probably the Intense Repairing Body Cream. I was on set with a lady that had run a marathon in Dallas and was sunburnt to the point where her skin was peeling. Not the greatest look for a shoot. I whipped out the Dove DermaSeries and got going on her arms, back and chest. It was a minor miracle! Her skin was instantly more supple and the peeling skin was massively reduced. I can't live without that in my kit now! It's also good to know that the fragrance is very low key and I'm not going to have any allergy dramas when I use a Dove product for work.

You'll be able to find these in stores very, very soon.

Dr Lewinn’s Renunail Triple Strength Nail Colours

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.
