Get the Look – SS16 Festival-Ready Hair Accessories

The flower crown is officially dead. Let’s be honest, it’s been done to death. The only way to get away with it now, is with natural flowers and single buds placed insouciantly just so. With the start of Coachella last weekend, (which is back again this weekend for round 2,) festival season is officially upon us. […]

Blush’s Top 5 Beauty Looks @ London Fashion Week – AW16

London Fashion Week seems to have finished as quickly as it started and whilst there was lots of front row action going on: like Marc Jacobs flying in to see his protegé A.V Robertson and new kids on the scene Anais Gallagher and Lottie Moss carrying on what their fam started; this season backstage seemed to […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma Show #NYFW Beauty

A celebration of diversity and the beauty of individuality, Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma show was a welcome surprise. Rih’s Fenty show of super soft oversized hoodies and racy lace-up cut-outs were perfectly paired with pared back skin, swept back hair doused in white powder and Rihanna’s signature black lip; the ultimate antidote to ghostly white lashes.  Set […]

Backstage with M.A.C @ NYFW AW16 – The Best Beauty Looks

New York Fashion Week is in full swing and the beauty looks are as bold as ever. Backstage, make-up artists Diane Kendal, Gucci Westman, Kabuki and Sil Bruinsma, worked their magic with M.A.C‘s Studio Conceal and Correct Palette and Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline, to create doubled-up graphic eyeliner flicks and a still-seasonally-appropriate berry lip and kohl […]

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 […]

The Top 8 AW15 Beauty Trends

There’s nothing like a beauty roundup, to get you ready for the season ahead. Unlike seasons before, Autumn/Winter ’15 was neither minimal nor extreme, but somewhere safely in between. As always kohl liner featured heavily, as did fashion’s penchant for purity – with perfectly prepped faces and groomed and full brows, taking centre stage once […]

Blush loves… The Balmain sidey

If you’ve ever watched the Kardashians– and let’s face it, if you read Blush- you probably have, you’ll have also marvelled at the power of a parting. Whenever Kim, Khloe or Kourtney take to the camera to have their way too rational revaluation of whatever drama they’ve overcome that episode, you will often have gasped […]

Get the Look – Tom Ford’s SS15 Sexpot

As my rather ‘proper’ retro bob begins its journey into a lob, I’ve been looking for a look to sex things up. It doesn’t get much sexier than Tom Ford’s SS15 woman, with her sequin nipple tasseled dress, shaggy hair and morning after makeup. Ford is always a safe bet when in search of something […]

Get the Look- Dior’s Futuristic Doll Eyes

See in the new year with Peter Phillips’ new look for Dior pre-fall 15. Models took to the runway in  coats constructed in exaggerated ideals, ankle skimming fur gilets worn atop long-sleeved sequinned and sparkly polo necks.  Though the elements remained the same – sheer sheath dresses,  knee high leather boots and quirky ski knits, […]

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 […]

The Diary

So this week has been a work week. Lots of press days but lots of fun. The week started with the launch of the Trilogy Christmas collection, which was a very chic take on Christmas as they opted for painterly prints as opposed to kitsch Xmas merch, meaning that you can stock up and hand […]

Anna Ewers oozed Bridgette Bardot cool backstage at the Sonia Rykiel SS15 show. The soon to be super’s look is easily achievable with tied back bed hair and lashings of kohl liner. The best I’ve tried in a while is HD Brows Kajal liner in Intense Black. The retractable kohl liner makes a welcome change from […]

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 […]

Backstage Beauty – Christopher Kane SS15

Monday at LFW is classically the day for the big dogs to show. Burberry wowed with painterly trenches, the fantastic James Bay and Kate and Cara on the front row, whilst Tom Ford gave a sexed up rock chic to challenge Hedi Slimane’s supremacy as the King of rock & roll. But as always, for […]

Beauty Backstage – Chanel Couture AW15

Karl Lagerfeld has made us want trainers and backpacks and now he’s making us want Mohawks. For yesterday’s Chanel Couture show, Karl Lagerfeld and hairstylist Sam McKnight refashioned the hair of fashion’s top girls into 80s boyband stars, with slicked back sides and mega quiffs. Models Sam Rollinson, Ming Xi, Kendall Jenner and Malaika Firth […]

Get the Look: White Liner at Kenzo & J. JS Lee

The SS14 catwalk offered up two differing, but equally striking, ways to wear white eyeliner. Kenzo’s  bold wave of white across the eyelid, was in-keeping with the oceanic graphics of the collection. Also drawing inspiration from the aquatic, for her London Aquarium-inspired show, J. JS Lee opted for a softer take, with a sweep of white kohl […]

Get the Look – David Koma SS14

  Blue was out in full force on the SS14 catwalks. David Koma offered an interesting alternative to the standard sweep of colour with a cat-eye. A modern take on the classic, this look is really worth experimenting with, and -unlike green lipstick- won’t make you look too freaky. For this look keep the base quite natural as […]

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 […]

Still Feeling Blue – Beauty Backstage – Marc by Marc Jacobs

Blue eyes show no sign of abating, or indeed waning, in the affections of Creative Directors across the globe.  Blue eyes seem to be the new dark lip, in their perpetual presence on the runways; slowly becoming  staple.  Initiated by Stella McCartney with her blue mascara of SS13, the look has continually been developed, with […]

Next season at Dior will be a futuristic affair.  Whilst Raf Simons prepared to present a more fantastical and surrealist collection, set against a backdrop of fluffy clouds and giant silver balls. Pat McGrath was backstage creating the perfect look to offset Raf’s cable-knit dogtooth separates. The easily achievable look of silver linings and fuchsia […]

Beauty Backstage- Dolce & Gabbana A/W ’13

In the world of fashion, the Dolce & Gabbana show was a lifetime ago, but in reality, it is a forward flash of the look we’ll be coveting and channelling next Autumn.  As the industry continue to propose who we’ll be next year, this time in Paris, it seems in no way retrogressive to reconsider […]

Despite being seen on the A/W12 catwalks by the likes of Mary Katrantzou, and the tiny heads of trendies everywhere, the top bun shows no signs of relenting, thanks to Valentino Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli. The Valentino show was an assemblage of midnight blue and red gowns in silks and peek-a-boo chiffon, […]
