Get the Look – French Braids

Summer is upon us and that means: fields, beaches and hair issues. Whilst I love the idea of beachy waves, we all know that the heat soon takes over and you end up wrapping your,  promptly frizzy do up into a bun, wishing you’d done it in the first place. Let’s be honest, holiday hair […]

Thing is, summer demands different things of you and your beauty regime, than the 8 months of harsh freezing winter that precede it. This being the case, here’s a summary of […]

Get the Look: Miu Miu SS14

   Miu Miu SS14 was a celebration of all things retro. Lace-up knee-high boots in suede and pastel leather, came over over-the-knee socks and beneath mini skirts and floral (or cat) print jackets. The entire collection was kooky and offbeat- signature Miuccia Prada– with a dash of sex appeal. To compliment this Sixties sex kitten, […]

Freida Pinto Swears By…Argan Oil. #BudgetBeauty

Blush understands that the best beauty products don’t have to cost £100. Although the odd splurge (or five) is always nice, we’ve enlisted the lovely Sadia to recommend the best budget buys and the A-list beauties that swear by them. First up is Freida Pinto. If you’re after soft and beautiful hair like Freida Pinto’s […]

Blush loves…Topshop’s Kabuki Brush

  When I first started buying make-up I was advised to always use natural brushes, mainly because they lasted longer. Natural brushes are great and to be fair, the ones I have bought have lasted for years. They’re easy to care for- you just need to wash them regularly with shampoo (although I prefer face […]

How to get Side-Swept Hair, as seen on Cara Delevingne

We saw Joan Smalls do it at Paris Fashion Week and Blake Lively mastered it on the Gucci front row. Cara Delevingne did it at the Met Ball and she’s done it again.  It seems the go-to look for downplaying a sexy look these day is side-swept hair. A chignon or a bun, despite the latter being […]

Lipstick Friday!! It’s a thing; kind of.

When you’re trying to look professional it’s hard to know how far you can go with make-up.  Although less is always best, sometimes you fancy going a bit cray and working a lipstick.  Dress down Fridays doesn’t really apply to me, but I think on a Friday, especially with the imminence of after-work drinks, it’s […]
