Blush’s Top 3 Autumn Beauty Buys: The Lipstick, Liner & Lash Curler

Halloween is over, Bonfire night is looming and Christmas is on its way. I think it’s fair to say that winter is finally upon us. And to be honest, I’m glad. I can finally put down my tinted moisturiser and cream blush and leave that wholesome summer look behind. It’s time for thick scarves, tights […]

Sunday Selection – Laura Mercier Flawless Fluid Foundation

Laura Mercier are known for their always excellent primer, but less so for their foundations, which is a shame as they’re great- and cater for every skin tone, something which I always appreciate. Their foundation powder has been my go to for years now, but I always used it as a finishing product as I […]

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, […]

Get the Look – Ibiza Beauty at Topshop Unique SS14

Whether stranded on a desert island or packing for a holiday, one of my must-have products is a black kohl eyeliner. This modest, unassuming pencil, holds the key to so many beautiful, bold looks. The most notorious perhaps is the post-party, morning-after look demonstrated at the Topshop Unique SS14 show.    Inspired by the Ibiza party girl, Topshop‘s offering was a daring -but welcome- contrast from the fresh faced trend […]

Get the look: Mulberry SS14

In just a few simple steps and with the help of a few key products my fresh […]

Lipstick- Budget vs. Luxe. Soap & Glory take on Laura Mercier

A new lipstick is always difficult to decide upon. Most people are loyal to one brand , opting to splurge on a Chanel or Tom Ford, go for a classic like MAC or a budget buy bang on trend from Topshop. In light of this many lipsticks are often overlooked. Case in point Laura Mercier […]

Get the look: Bronze Eyes

  The Inspiration      [Clockwise from top: Stella McCartney SS14, Gucci, Jason Wu & Tom Ford AW13-14] Bronze eyes are a look for this season and beyond. They are the perfect neutral shade for darker skin tones and add luminescence to sunkissed skin. Bronze eyes are also the perfect day-to-night accessory, easily dressed up […]

Look of the day – Joan Smalls at the VMAs – Berry lips are back, Get the look

Puerto Rican Supermodel Joan Smalls, stole the show at the VMAs (well that is until Miley Cyrus attempted to pull a Rih Rih/old school Britney with Robin Thicke). As we’ve been inundated with celebrity holiday pics, it was nice to see someone ready for winter, and Joan made the case for Autumn/Winter make-up an easy […]

Blush’s Favourite Bronzers

Whether you’re fair, olive or dark-skinned, you can never do without a bit of bronzer. Although this season and next, are all about a more pared-back look, bronzer is the key to adding dimension to the face- whether you’re creating contours or highlighting. I first discovered bronzer at 18, around the age I fell in […]

Lids v Lips-Get the look-Spring/Summer ’13 Couture

Whoever said couture is dead, is mental. Ever since those controversial words were uttered a few years ago, couture has never been more covetable- from Galliano’s flower girls in 2010 to Riccardo Tisci’s model line-ups of Asian Swans and canine-wielding tough girls.   As both Galliano and Tisci have been absent this season, all eyes […]

Primers: the secret to perfect skin.

To those who use big brand products, the wonders of a good primer is no secret, yet it is only now that High-St brands have got in the game. Next season is all about perfect skin, a necessity to offset heavily-kholed eyes or precise red lips.  Apart from the obvious cleanse, tone and moisturise routine, […]
