G’s Top 3…Skin Boosting Foundations

Choosing the foundation with the right texture, shade and coverage can seem an impossible task – with an array of formulas that are often too yellow, too cakey or too oily, I’ve rounded up the best bases for the perfect finish. This long wearing and very rich foundation with a combination of provitamin B5, Magnesium, […]

Blush’s favourite looks from Paris Fashion Week

As soon as I saw Sienna Miller in this McQueen off-the shoulder look, I instantly thought look of the day. The Eliabetthan elegance of it all, given a decidedly modern spin in the shoulders that were on show, the undone hair and the barely there make-up, summed up this season and next. This season, particularly […]

Look of the day – Kate, Sarah Jessica, Naomi & Georgia May at The Serpentine

The Serpentine Summer Party is one of the summer’s best. This year was hosted by L’Wren Scott, designer and wife of Mick Jagger, so it was only natural that fashion’s finest graced the grass. Christopher Kane, Erdem, Daphne Guinness and Kristen Mcmenamy, were just a few of the heavyweights that could be spotted hanging out […]

Campaign Trailing- Cara for Mulberry

So apart from becoming one of the most recognised models in the world, Cara Delevingne can also be credited with bringing back the brow. The british model, who has fronted campaigns for Saint Laurent Paris, DKNY and Burberry, has just been named the face of Mulberry. Cara looked the picture of perfection, sporting a slicked-down centre-parting, her signature dark brows, […]

Look of the day- Kate Moss & Lindsey Wixson

It’s been a while, and for that I am sorry. The SAG awards proved unfruitful in the style stakes so the Blush’s first 2013 post has been saved by a couple of Supers.   One- an icon, a Brit, a veteran; the other- an all-American sweetheart with a killer pout and trademark gap.    Notorious […]

All BLUSH wants for Christmas… #Nails

As the end of the month looms, I know it really is almost only 25 days til Christmas, and I have no idea where to start. Presents? Pampering? Prepping? It’s a veritable maze and universally accepted mission, but what definitely helps when that moment of unwrapping approaches, is the sight of something you actually want, […]

Paris Fashion Week’s Finest & SLP

Saint Laurent Paris S/S13 I was desperately hoping that Kate Moss was on the front row at Hedi Slimane’s first public show for Saint Laurent Paris as the entire collection was made for her.  Completely bewitched by the former head of Dior Homme’s first show, since his controversial name change for YSL, the show was a shameless […]

Most Wanted: YSL Rouge pur Couture Glossy Lip Stain

Gloss as you know it is dead; gone are the days of sticky lips and stickier cheeks.  For a while gloss fell victim to the smooth and matte allure of lipstick, as women the world over hung up their juicy tubes, around the same time they discarded their monogrammed handbags- gloss just seemed to flashy, too shiny, too gauche. So […]
