Introducing… Vapour Organic Beauty’s Atmosphere Luminous Foundation

When it comes to makeup, in spite of my intense love for it, I am fundamentally quite lazy. I’ve accepted it, and therefore no one can use it against me. I probably wear makeup twice a week, and when I do it’s usually as few products as possible. Except when it comes to glitter, but […]

Introducing … NOTO Botanics Hydra Highlighter

Although there’s a time and a place for a full, beaming, metallic highlighter, I think the future of glow is an altogether more subtle affair. Something which mimics a naturally healthy and hydrated complexion, combining dewy oils with a subtle wash of colour, or iridescent pigment, is a totally cute and modern way to shine. […]

Testing the Treatment – Massages at Blush + Blow and Park Plaza’s Aurora Spa

I’m always on the lookout for new treatments and am more than happy to sacrifice my face/body in the name of beauty. I’ve recently tried two fantastic massages that are must visits for this Bank Holiday weekend. First up is The Aurora Spa at Westminster’s Park Plaza. This spa is a little gem. It may […]

Introducing … Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint

If you have your finger on the natural beauty pulse, you’ll likely have heard of Tata Harper. It’s the name of a brand and also the name of a woman, which is pretty cool. She makes tons of expensive and beautiful skincare from her home farm in Vermont (probably not actually, but let’s focus on […]

How To Dress For Party Season, Without Looking “Party Season”

As winter creeps in, it’s time to wholeheartedly embrace glamour. Wrap up in plush velvets and cosy furs, show off in metallic finishes and sequinned gowns. Once you’ve bedeck yourself in feathers, drag your ensemble into 2018, with matte leathers, sharp suiting and whiter than white boots. Natasha Zinko, Velvet Bow Mules, £600, Browns Fashion […]

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 […]

Blush Loves… Paris

I stepped off the metro, on the first Thursday in February to the smell of croissant. I followed my offline Citymapper to my hotel a four minute walk away, undoubtedly looking like the tourist I so clearly was- dressed in a giant hat, wide legged trousers, a blazer, and once-upon-a-time white Reeboks, peeking out at […]

Blush Styles – Rocks and Ripped Jeans

I resisted the temptation of ripped jeans for quite some time and rather stupidly waited until September to buy them, so this is a short style piece on how to try and make ripped jeans work for Autumn Winter. Two other looks I loved that I haven’t had a chance to shoot yet are… fishnets […]

Blush Asks… Charlotte Mensah

It’s not often that I come away from an interview so pumped, but after my chat with Charlotte Mensah, I left feeling so inspired by somebody who had experienced personal tragedy at an early age, but instead of letting it knock her down, endeavoured to achieve so much. She’s won British Afro Hairdresser of the Year twice, […]

Introducing – Demeter Fragrances

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, […]

Get the Look – Spring Trainers

Whenever it’s time for me to buy a new pair of trainers, I find that I tend to become slightly obsessed. For about a month they’re top of my to do list and I physically can’t walk past a shoe store without having a cheeky peek. Most recently my obsession has been white Nike Air […]

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 […]

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 […]

Testing the Treatment – Blink @ Selfridges

I’ve always opted for threading over waxing, mainly because the only time I had my eyebrows threaded I cried like a baby. So you could imagine my trepidation when I was invited along to sample a brow treatment at Blink. Thankfully I needn’t have worried. I walked up to the Blink counter on the ground […]
