Introducing – & Other Stories Foundation

Since launching a couple of years ago, & Other Stories has fast become the bane of my wallet and the light of my life. Grown-up fashion for Zara fans, looking for something a little more unique,;Stories also happens to be perfect, for those who may have grown out of Topshop, but aren’t quite minimal enough for […]

August Favourites That You Need in Your Life

So it’s been a while since I last posted, and for that I am truly sorry. Slapp is consuming all of my time, but if you are looking for some Beauty advice, or news on the latest launches, I would suggest heading over to the app. In other news, I have been trying out a lot […]

Introducing… Epara Skincare

We all know we’re supposed to take care of our skin and thanks to a post-teen dabble in the Clinique 3 -step programme, most of us know what skin type we are. I have the pleasure of being Combination: which basically means I’m a little of everything. A bit dry here and a bit oily […]

Introducing – Chantecaille Foundation, Vital Essence & Matte Chic

In her last piece for Blush, Annie introduces us to Chantecaille… Chantecaille is a brand that has always seemed a little out of my league. In spite of what you may think, glamorous, I’m not. I love makeup and skincare and all things luxe, but at heart I think I’m secretly quite low maintenance. Chantecaille, […]

Blush Loves – The Zara Home – Perfume Collection

Zara is one of those not so secret gems. You can always rely on it, for that last minute change of clothes before an event, that trend led piece you’re not quite ready to invest in, or those strappy sandals you need for your bestie’s wedding. It’s the high street’s answer to affordable chic. Another […]

The Best Burgundy Palettes

When it comes to a smokey party eye, burgundy is the new black. I’m putting this down to the current consensus that less makeup is more, (even if we’ve definitely got quite a bit on.)  The classic black suddenly seems a little heavy for a night out, whereas burgundy offers a softer, bronzer glow. It’s […]

Skincare Saviours from Fresh, La Roche Posay, Sesderma & Bare Minerals

I always love discovering new skincare products, partly because I never want to age and partly because I love the ritual of preening my face. There’s nothing better than seeing a visible difference between your slightly parched skin to a face plumped by a powerful serum. I’ve tried some great products over the past few […]

Slapp Chat

So as you may have heard, I have just launched my app Slapp. It’s been out for a week and I’ve had such a great response so far. Slapp is a foundation matching app that matches you to the foundation shades and products that are right for your skin tone. As well as being a […]

Introducing – Glossier Flavoured Lip Balms

I am a total Glossier sucker, which is an annoying thing for many reasons. First, their minimal-cool-girl-low-maintenance aesthetic is just not something which totally jives with someone who loves glitter as much as I do. There’s a time and a place for no-makeup-makeup, sure, but to suggest that there is thus no time nor place […]

Blush Guide to Hand Luggage

Unless you’re Kim Kardashian or Mariah Carey, flying probably sucks. Packing stress plus security checks, dehydration and a poorly ventilated plane set you up for hours of anxiety, exhaustion and general fractiousness. Flying is known to dry out your skin, bring on head and ear aches and increase risk of breakouts and eye inflammation. The […]

Get the Look – Nude Lips for Dark Skin

  Finding anything ‘nude’ coloured when you’re darker of skin can be a huge challenge. At my school, we were supposed to wear skin coloured tights; a requirement that lead to me either wearing orangey fake tan nylons or stockings that made me look as though I’d been dipped in sickly beige paint. When it […]

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 […]

This week’s probably the last week, we can really get behind a summer trend. London rain isn’t helping, but as sad as it is to say, summer is drawing to a close. Whilst I’m still in need of a lot more tanning, there are so many beauty looks for next season I can’t wait to […]

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, […]

Blush Loves…Christmas Gifts

It’s that time of year and Christmas is upon us. Many of he big brands have relinquished gift-sets for advent calendars this year. And whilst I love the idea of getting a new Jo Malone fragrance every day, it’s pretty risky business; much like buying a box of chocolates, I never want the nut and at […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
