Get the Look: Lipgloss & Chainmail

The noughties revival has been gently gaining pace since Kylie Jenner decided she was bringing back the Von Dutch cap. It was a little soon, but her intentions were spot on. We’ve since seen the return of plastic chokers, asymmetric hems and can you believe it, cowl necks. Kendall Jenner sealed the deal on her […]

Blush Board: Party Time

It’s been a while since I’ve put together a Blush Board, so I thought I’d put all of my pinning to good use for a party-centric piece. There’s lots more to come on Slappshop.com, but in the meantime, here’s a little inspiration to keep you going!

Get the Look – Nude Lips for Dark Skin

  Finding anything ‘nude’ coloured when you’re darker of skin can be a huge challenge. At my school, we were supposed to wear skin coloured tights; a requirement that lead to me either wearing orangey fake tan nylons or stockings that made me look as though I’d been dipped in sickly beige paint. When it […]

12 Reasons why we love Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell needs little introduction and you probably already have an opinion about her. Whether that’s a phone-throwing loony, the Super of all Supers, Queen of the Catwalk, Bad biatch repping London or just an amazing woman who looks even better at 45. Whatever your opinion, her greatness is undeniable. She’s a legend: for fashion […]

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 […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma Show #NYFW Beauty

A celebration of diversity and the beauty of individuality, Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma show was a welcome surprise. Rih’s Fenty show of super soft oversized hoodies and racy lace-up cut-outs were perfectly paired with pared back skin, swept back hair doused in white powder and Rihanna’s signature black lip; the ultimate antidote to ghostly white lashes.  Set […]

Look of the Day – Rihanna in Red Velvet

I’ve been going on about how velvet is the fabric of the season, for quite some time now and it’s nice to know that Rihanna’s been paying attention. The Bajan superstar has taken a break from teasing us about the release of her upcoming album, Anti (if teasing’s your thing, check below) and is back to doing what […]

Look of the Day – Rihanna’s Blue Bun

In a recent Daily Mail online binge (I’m the worst type of person I know) in which I was doing some detective work on Rihanna and Travis Scott (also very sad- yep I know), I thought I spotted what looked like a blue bun poking out of the back of her baseball cap. I’ve wanted […]

Berry Lips are Back – Get the Look

Unlike florals in Spring, berry lips in autumn never go out of style- thank god, because pink looks horrendous on me. This season creamy mattes and soft sheens take centre stage. if you’re in need of some inspiration, look to queen of the Bordeaux lip Joan Smalls. The supermodel has become so well known for […]

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 […]

Blush Loves: Denim. Get the Look

At the moment I’m in a state of confusion. Inspired by Rihanna’s four five seconds video and her oversized Matthew Dolan Denim jackets, I want oversized denim everything. I want denim shifts, button-up skirts and shirts and I want it all now, with bare legs. But unless you’re living in sunny climes. It’s kind of a hard (and […]

Get the Look – Rihanna Does Pretty at The Grammys

Rihanna stunned on the red carpet at last week’s Grammys and it wasn’t just due to her vintage rose giambattista valli couture gown.

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 – Slicked-back Hair at Balmain

It’s Friday and you’ve got approximately twenty minutes to transform from exhausted desktop affixee, to decent looking member of society. Being eyed up in a bar when you have the morning’s make-up smeared somewhere along your temples, is never a nice feeling, so we’ve taken inspiration from the SS15 show of the new Tom Ford, […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Dark Red Lipstick

Rihanna stunned last week, top to toe in Altuzurra SS15 pink gingham, but it was her uber dark red lips that caught our attention. I’ve been raving about berry lips since I got my hands on Topshop’s Beguiled years ago and it seems that every winter without fail we fall for the mysterious hue. Perhaps […]

Look of the day – Rihanna

Dinner is always a tricky beast to master. LBD- classic, easy, red dress (for real va va voom) or jeans and a nice chiffon shirt for a ‘oh this old thing’ French vibe; all standard and fail safe options, but fuschia, that’s pretty bold. Obviously it had to be Rihanna popping out to dinner, in […]

Dior Cruise ’15- Rihanna & Olivia Palermo – Look of the day

  Yesterday saw the first Cruise show of the season, staged by Dior. The show was an extravagant start to the season as attendees were whisked from Brooklyn in a Dior branded cruise ship (very fitting). The show itself was an extension of the seasons before with 1940s Dior style blazers reworked, painterly prints, and […]

Look of the day- -Rihanna rules at Paris Fashion Week

[Rihanna at Givenchy] [At Stella McCartney] Ok so the stockings at Dior were a terrible shout, but pushing that image far back into the depths of our memories aside, Rihanna has been killing it at Paris Fashion Week. The singer returned from her Aspen birthday break with a bang (and a bob), lending her support […]
