Blush Loves: Skinny Scarves, Hair Ties and Chokers

My favourite season is upon us and I have to say I’m rather happy to see my 15 deniers again. Autumn/Winter, for me is the time you can have the most fun with your style. My Autumn style tends to be a twist on old classics. Silk blouses, skinny jeans and fur coats never fail […]

Get the look -Anja Rubik’s Shearling

If you’re looking for Boxing day sales inspiration it doesn’t get much better than Anja Rubik‘s shearling coat. Shearling crept onto the catwalk this season at Prada, and shows no signs of going anywhere soon, thanks to the Pre-Fall collections of Calvin Klein, Burberry and Gucci. I literally fell in love at Coach on Bond […]

Sunday Selection – Topshop’s Plummy Polish

Topshop’s Nail Polish in Middle Child, is a plummy purple, that you can’t help smile at. The thick formula glides on evenly and you could definitely get away with one coat, if you’re in a rush. Lightening up the deep greys and berries that tend to dominate the season, this rich bumble-berry, is as uplifting […]

Blush’s Favourite Fashion & Beauty Looks from 2014

2014 has been a crazy year. In the beauty world we got to grips with make-up again after seasons of fuss free hair and make-up barely there. This year was all about the bronze eye, teenage kohl and layering up on lashes. On the streets seemingly every star was spotted in their monogrammed Burberry blanket […]

Blush Loves – Holiday Hairstyles

It’s holiday season. Which means Balls, dinners, work parties and New Year, all requiring you to elevate your beauty look from the standard low ponytail/bobble hat vibe you’ve adopted since the weather became too ridiculous to give a damn. We’ve hunted down our favourite (achievable) hair looks from our favourite girls to hopefully inspire this […]

Get the Look- Cara’s Bronze Eyes

You’ve probably already seen Cara’s latest campaign for Tom Ford’s Black Orchid. Whilst boys the world over are no doubt oogling her side boob, we’ve only got eyes for, Cara’s eyes. The young supermodel demonstrates the perfect party eyes, and brows and lips in the fragrance campaign. Whilst we love a blacked out smokey eye, […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Dark Red Lipstick

Rihanna stunned last week, top to toe in Altuzurra SS15 pink gingham, but it was her uber dark red lips that caught our attention. I’ve been raving about berry lips since I got my hands on Topshop’s Beguiled years ago and it seems that every winter without fail we fall for the mysterious hue. Perhaps […]

At Blush we celebrate the best beauty in fashion told from the London perspective, so it was little surprise when the retail giant that is ASOS, asked us to create an edit of our favourite pieces that best reflect London style now. London is all about mixing the high and low, the chic and shabby. We’re pretty […]

Sunday Selection – Chanel Ombre Essentielle in Admiration

We did say the 80s were back and it seems Chanel agree. Pay homage to the era of plenty, with Chanel‘s buttercup yellow eyeshadow in Admiration. For full impact wet the brush and build up, or if you’re feeling an ethereal nymph vibe use dry for a powdery finish. Enriched with Vitamins C, E and […]

Get the Look – Retro Modern

Perhaps I’m being inspired by my new sixties bob, or the AW14 shows of Paris, Milan and London have sub-consciously infiltrated my brain, but either way, I’m feeling very retro. And it seems its not just me. The High-St is playing host to more polo necks than I’ve ever seen; and what better to pair […]

Get the Look – Grace Hartzel’s New School Glamour

I’ve been a huge Grace Hartzel fan since those first YSL ads; the fringe, the fur, the pout, she was the perfect poster child for Hedi Slimane‘s Rock and Roll revolution, at the helm of the huge Paris House that is Yves Saint Laurent. Keeping in line with the French vibe I’m currently mentally channeling, […]

Sunday Selection – Topshop’s Metallic Nails

When it comes to winter nails nothing beats a classic red, but there are only so many shades of rouge you can play with before boredom hits. Metallic nails are nothing new, but admittedly I was a little late to the game, mainly as I had no idea where to start. Thankfully Topshop have come to […]

Blush’s Top 3 Autumn Beauty Buys: The Lipstick, Liner & Lash Curler

Halloween is over, Bonfire night is looming and Christmas is on its way. I think it’s fair to say that winter is finally upon us. And to be honest, I’m glad. I can finally put down my tinted moisturiser and cream blush and leave that wholesome summer look behind. It’s time for thick scarves, tights […]

Get the Look- How to apply False Lashes

Perhaps a little damaged by their ubiquity on every red carpet and, well everyone in possession of nude platform heels and a bodycon dress, false lashes took a backseat in our affections for a little while; quietly making way for minimal make-up. Thanks to the retro resurgence they are back with a vengeance. Seen on […]

8 Easy Autumn/Winter Beauty Trends

Fashion month is coming to an end and whilst all the editors and digital viewers are getting to grips with what’s in store for next summer, I thought it was best to get you prepped for the coming season, Autumn/Winter. The catwalks showed an abundance of outlandish looks: cornrow crowns and feathered brows at Alexander McQueen […]

Get the look – Margot Tennenbaum

Gwyneth Paltrow is famous for many things: Sliding doors (classic), that oscars speech (hilarious), Goop (admirable but depressing) and the much mocked ‘conscious uncoupling’ statement (embarrassing). But what I know and will always love her for is Margot. I watched the Royal Tennenbaums on a flight to visit my family in Hong Kong, upon landing […]

When the weather is playing up, it’s pretty difficult to gauge what to do with your hair. A sleek straight look, blow dry or waves will all fall victim to rain, heat or humidity. Thankfully Balmain have come up with the chicest of offerings – a slick centre-parted bun. Take your cue from Jourdan and […]

Campaign Trailing – Berry Lips are Back for Givenchy Fall 2014

Berry lips have been off the radar for a while now, but for some reason last weekend- out of nowhere, I whipped out my Chanel, Rouge Coco Shine No.92. It was a sultry saturday evening, my eyes were a Nars shade of copper bronze, I’d caught the sun and it just seemed fitting. After a […]

Spring is intermittently in the air and though we are all looking forward to the blue eyeshadow and orange lips designers have decreed for Spring/Summer, it’s very hard to forget all of the gorgeous looks from the season we’ve just seen, Autumn/Winter.  I’ve had a browse around and it seems that A/W14 was thankfully very […]

For Autumn/Winter 2014-15 Prada paired oversized wool blazers and colourful shearlings with lucid linings, with prim centre-parted buns and spidery lashes. It’s been a while since lashes have […]

Beauty Backstage – Pigtails and Liner @ Marc by Marc Jacobs – A/W ’14

In a collection centred around revolution, it came as no surprise that Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley’s first show for Marc by Marc Jacobs, would feature heavy eyeliner. Nothing screams rebellion quite like heavily kohl-rimmed eyes. One is instantly transported back to teenage days when panda-eyes prevailed. Though rebellion is not quite revolution, it is […]
