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 […]

Blush visits : Jo Loves

I’ve long been a fan of the legendary Jo Malone. Who doesn’t know the story of how the self made entrepreneur built one of the most recognisable luxury fragrance brands, only to lose the rights to her name, and the option of working in the industry, she had so significantly shaped. After a 5 year […]

Monday Blues? The Dior AW17 Show will give you that much-needed boost

We already know that Maria Grazia Chiuri, wants us all to ‘be Feminists’, but for her AW17 collection; instead of emblazoning this message across instagrammable t-shirts, this was cleverly sown into the fabric of her seemingly sombre – and all blue -collection. Her message could be felt in the black panther inspired leather berets, the small […]

All I Want for Chinese New Year is…

I’ve  always liked Chinese New Year. As well as being a fan of hong bao and the treats that lay within them, I love that each year has it’s own personality. Distinguished by animals, CNY brings more meaning to the new year than it just being ‘a new year.’ No ‘New Year New You’ malarkey here. CNY is […]

Blush Loves – Beauty Pie

I love presents. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. What I love more though is post. Maybe it’s seven years at boarding school, when post was literally the highlight of our week; There was no better feeling than receiving a care pack from home, or no worse feeling when your friend would literally […]

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 […]

Blush Loves… Rocks & Co.

I’m new to the jewellery game, but I’ve been upping the ante of late. The lovely chaps at Rocks & Co, offered me the chance to get to know their site and pick something I liked. It was actually a lot harder than I anticipated it would be. The great thing is that they have […]

Keep that Summer Glow with Tom Ford Soleil

Summer may be almost over, but it doesn’t mean you have to forsake that glow. Thankfully next season is all about hyper real skin and I’m obsessed. If you haven’t got time to prep and prime, fake it ’til you make it with the Tom Ford Soleil Colour collection. Readers of Blush will know how much […]

Introducing – The Sleek Solstice Palette

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a person in possession of eyes and a brain must love glitter. We are all magpies, drawn to the colourful and the shiny, and I won’t hear otherwise. But as adults, life often consists of a really disappointing amount of glitter. I want more and if you don’t, […]

Showering: boring. Sleeping: better, but still not particularly exciting. Anything which can spice up your daily rituals (see what I did!? I’m a real writer!!) is a blessing in my eyes. And Rituals have come through with another really pleasant collection. The packaging is a beautiful jade-y blue with copper accents. It’s designed for summer, […]

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 […]

Blush Tests.. Miu Miu’s Ombre Lips

Ombre lips: old news, sort of. They’ve been in every runway roundup for many moons, and in the age old way have trickled down onto the high street. Nyx and Topshop have specific kits for achieving a two toned lip. But they are typically two very similar shades: a lighter and a darker. Twice as interesting […]

Blush Loves… By Terry – Thè Glace Perfume

I’ve long been a fan of By Terry as my multitude of early posts, pretty much dedicated to her every launch can attest. I love the brow pens, the mascara, eyeshadow sticks and perfume. Terry’s Rouge Nocturne is my signature winter scent so I was unsurprisingly giddy at the prospect of a spring upgrade. Enter […]

“I Work Out.” Blush Styles – Activewear

I’ve recently moved to Chelsea, which is all very lovely, but it does come with its disadvantages. One of them being that whenever you tell anyone where you live they raise their eyebrows and say ‘ooh that’s posh!’ In a kind of weird judgey way, or call you a rich c u next Tuesday, which […]

As we all know, it’s cool to be cool. And a lot of being cool relies on being different. (For those of you wondering, yes, I am the ultimate authority on being cool.) In aesthetic, unusual-ness is usually highly praised: be it ugly trousers, strange lipstick or giant hair. This is all well and good, […]

12 Reasons why we love Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell needs little introduction and you probably already have an opinion about her. Whether that’s a phone-throwing loony, the Super of all Supers, Queen of the Catwalk, Bad biatch repping London or just an amazing woman who looks even better at 45. Whatever your opinion, her greatness is undeniable. She’s a legend: for fashion […]

Introducing – Joan Collins – Timeless Beauty

I think I speak for all of us when I say we harbor a secret fantasy of being Joan Collins when we grow up. She seems to epitomise a kind of knowingly hilarious yet also deeply sincere glamour, which I, as a bumbling idiot, can only daydream about emulating. But now I can! (Not really […]

Straight Outta Brick Lane. Blush Styles: Streetwear

The line between streetwear and sportswear is so fine, it’s a dot. I’ve always dabbled in both. As I made the move from awkward tomboy in baggy nike tracksuit bottoms and Adidas poppers, to trying to be a girl in skintight, cropped Abercrombie vest tops and JW trackies. At Uni I went through the denim mini […]

Blush Loves… #Fringespo (Bangs are Back for Good, or at least until mine grow out!)

Sitting at home this Christmas, I found myself flicking through old Vogue magazines in the TV’s absence. Whilst I adore print and promised myself I’d never be lured in by the bright backlights of a tablet; every month I watch myself open the rather undesirable, but always enticing grey mail bag my monthly Vogue comes […]

Look of the Day – Rihanna’s Blue Bun

In a recent Daily Mail online binge (I’m the worst type of person I know) in which I was doing some detective work on Rihanna and Travis Scott (also very sad- yep I know), I thought I spotted what looked like a blue bun poking out of the back of her baseball cap. I’ve wanted […]

Blush’s quest for impeccable skin continues and this week we’re going au naturel.

Blush Loves…Bangs

Researching for an upcoming shoot, I found myself repeatedly pinning pictures of brunette girls with blunt bobs and fringes. I’ve always been a fan of the fringe- mainly because I can’t have one. I did try to cut one when I was about six, but an afro fringe doesn’t really work, at all. There are […]

If you’re planning a trip to Berlin then you’re a lucky thing. I fell in love with the city that really never sleeps, within 12 hours of landing.

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 […]

I must admit I love a bit of gingham. I have an old picture of me as a 90s 9-year-old giving the peace sign somewhere in Paris, wearing a tie waist gingham shirt and denim shorts. Whilst it may have been worryingly too close to Daisy Duke, whenever I look at that pic, I can’t […]

  Around about early Feb, my mind begins to wander towards Spring and Summer planning.

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 […]
