Introducing – Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette

In a world of neutral palettes, there comes a time when enough is enough. I love a bronze wash as much as the next girl, but let’s face it – I have about a hundred bronze wash options at this point. To catch my attention, there has to be something more, something extra. Enter: the […]

Get the Look – Ballerina Style

What woman hasn’t felt the pull of ballet at some stage in her life?

Blush Tests… Gold Lips @ Prada

At Blush we often look to the catwalk for inspiration, but what with the no make-up make-up and berry lips we’ve seen for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, things have been getting a little samey of late. So I asked Blush contributor Annie, to road test  this season’s most radical look and brave Prada’s gold […]

Get the Look – French Girl Style

Is there anything more perennially chic than French women? With their effortlessly tousled hair, poreless skin and minimalist style aesthetic, the French dominate in nonchalant beauty, saying ‘non’ to trends and ‘Don’t look at me’ to passers-by. French style is all about attitude, and with beauties like Lea Seydoux and Marine Vacth making a style […]

Unlike florals in Spring, berry lips in autumn never go out of style- thank god, because pink looks horrendous on me.

So far for Spring Summer 15, there’s been a lot to love. Christopher Kane’s bare faced beauty and Givenchy’s mega wing are both ideal for the day, with the Balmain slick-back and Tom Ford’s sexpot bringing the glamour for the night. As it’s only June, I think it may be a little premature for beachy waves and sun-kissed skin; we’re kind of in […]

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 […]
