Blush Loves: Skinny Scarves, Hair Ties and Chokers

My favourite season is upon us and I have to say I’m rather happy to see my 15 deniers again. Autumn/Winter, for me is the time you can have the most fun with your style. My Autumn style tends to be a twist on old classics. Silk blouses, skinny jeans and fur coats never fail […]

Get the look -Anja Rubik’s Shearling

If you’re looking for Boxing day sales inspiration it doesn’t get much better than Anja Rubik‘s shearling coat. Shearling crept onto the catwalk this season at Prada, and shows no signs of going anywhere soon, thanks to the Pre-Fall collections of Calvin Klein, Burberry and Gucci. I literally fell in love at Coach on Bond […]

Blush’s Favourite Fashion & Beauty Looks from 2014

2014 has been a crazy year. In the beauty world we got to grips with make-up again after seasons of fuss free hair and make-up barely there. This year was all about the bronze eye, teenage kohl and layering up on lashes. On the streets seemingly every star was spotted in their monogrammed Burberry blanket […]

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 […]

Blush loves…ASOS

At Blush we celebrate the best beauty in fashion told from the London perspective, so it was little surprise when the retail giant that is ASOS, asked us to create an edit of our favourite pieces that best reflect London style now. London is all about mixing the high and low, the chic and shabby. We’re pretty […]

Sunday Selection – Chanel Ombre Essentielle in Admiration

We did say the 80s were back and it seems Chanel agree. Pay homage to the era of plenty, with Chanel‘s buttercup yellow eyeshadow in Admiration. For full impact wet the brush and build up, or if you’re feeling an ethereal nymph vibe use dry for a powdery finish. Enriched with Vitamins C, E and […]

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 […]

Get the Look – Grace Hartzel’s New School Glamour

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, […]

Sunday Selection – Topshop’s Metallic Nails

When it comes to winter nails nothing beats a classic red, but there are only so many shades of rouge you can play with before boredom hits. Metallic nails are nothing new, but admittedly I was a little late to the game, mainly as I had no idea where to start. Thankfully Topshop have come to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Get the look – Over the Knee Boots at #PFW

Ever since I saw last winter’s Celine ads, I have been desperate for a pair of over the knee boots. I spent hours, days even, scouring the internet and running to random stores on my lunch break; I even went to Dune, which was random and surprisingly ok. Anyway, after a good fortnight of ferocious […]

8 Easy Autumn/Winter Beauty Trends

Fashion month is coming to an end and whilst all the editors and digital viewers are getting to grips with what’s in store for next summer, I thought it was best to get you prepped for the coming season, Autumn/Winter. The catwalks showed an abundance of outlandish looks: cornrow crowns and feathered brows at Alexander McQueen […]

Beauty Backstage – Chanel Couture AW15

Karl Lagerfeld has made us want trainers and backpacks and now he’s making us want Mohawks. For yesterday’s Chanel Couture show, Karl Lagerfeld and hairstylist Sam McKnight refashioned the hair of fashion’s top girls into 80s boyband stars, with slicked back sides and mega quiffs. Models Sam Rollinson, Ming Xi, Kendall Jenner and Malaika Firth […]

Milan Fashion Week brings back Mascara – Backstage Beauty #MFW

Mascara is back!  Whether it was clumped at Prada or enhanced by extensions at Versace and Dolce & Gabbana. The revival of the lash marks a return to unashamed glamour, by the masters of glamour, the Italians.  [Dolce & Gabbana] At Prada, things were a little more restrained, but at Versace  bias cut dresses were just the […]

Backstage Beauty – Spidery lashes at Prada

 The Prada show is alway met with great anticipation. Mainly because Miuccia Prada always sets the tone for the season and the mood for the year to come. For Autumn/Winter 2014-15 Prada paired oversized wool blazers and colourful shearlings with lucid linings, with prim centre-parted buns and spidery lashes. It’s been a while since lashes have […]
