Blush Tests… Tropical Makeup @ Alexis Mabillle SS16

Ugh, September. Why did Earth Wind and Fire decide that this was the month to celebrate? It’s a month which somehow seems like a purgatory before the hell that is winter. For those of you still grasping on to the last dregs of summer, here is a makeup look for pretending you’re on holiday and […]

Get the Look – Victoriana

White lace and layers of chiffon are nothing new for spring/summer, but this season designers went full throttle, showcasing an array of diaphanous gowns and Victorian inspired sleeves. Whether you’ll be teaming strict starchy whites with high waisted denim, or going all out in ankle grazing white Mille feuille, Blush writer Josie Johnson, shows you […]

Blush Tests… Gold Lips @ Prada

At Blush we often look to the catwalk for inspiration, but what with the no make-up make-up and berry lips we’ve seen for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, things have been getting a little samey of late. So I asked Blush contributor Annie, to road test  this season’s most radical look and brave Prada’s gold […]

Get the Look – French Braids

Summer is upon us and that means: fields, beaches and hair issues. Whilst I love the idea of beachy waves, we all know that the heat soon takes over and you end up wrapping your,  promptly frizzy do up into a bun, wishing you’d done it in the first place. Let’s be honest, holiday hair […]

“I Work Out.” Blush Styles – Activewear

I’ve recently moved to Chelsea, which is all very lovely, but it does come with its disadvantages. One of them being that whenever you tell anyone where you live they raise their eyebrows and say ‘ooh that’s posh!’ In a kind of weird judgey way, or call you a rich c u next Tuesday, which […]

Get the Look – SS16 Festival-Ready Hair Accessories

The flower crown is officially dead. Let’s be honest, it’s been done to death. The only way to get away with it now, is with natural flowers and single buds placed insouciantly just so. With the start of Coachella last weekend, (which is back again this weekend for round 2,) festival season is officially upon us. […]

Get the Look – Ruffles and Romance

After summers of bum-cheek flashing and seventies throwbacks, this spring designers have come over all romantic. Perhaps it’s the current state of global affairs and the campaign of hate spewed by leaders and extremists, the world over, but this summer it’s all about peace, love and ruffles . For Spring/Summer 16 Vetements, Gucci and Marques Almeida led […]

Straight Outta Brick Lane. Blush Styles: Streetwear

The line between streetwear and sportswear is so fine, it’s a dot. I’ve always dabbled in both. As I made the move from awkward tomboy in baggy nike tracksuit bottoms and Adidas poppers, to trying to be a girl in skintight, cropped Abercrombie vest tops and JW trackies. At Uni I went through the denim mini […]

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 – The 90s Tracksuit

The tracksuit bottom is making a comeback. No longer reserved for garage videos and nostalgic I-D spreads, good old trackie b’s are back with a vengeance. Seen in their splendour on the Spring/Summer catwalk at Chloe, creative director Claire Waight Keller channelled the 90s Classic by teaming her red trackies with a classic rib necked tracksuit […]

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 […]
