Many of you know that I write a beauty blog and make beauty videos on YouTube but what some of you may not know that I also work for the only Charity in the UK solely dedicated to the worldwide reduction of facial injuries and diseases – Saving Faces. I’ve worked here for the past 4 years and I absolutely love my job and how we help improve the treatment of patients affected by disfiguring diseases like mouth cancer.
It’s been a incredibly manic week and I wanted to sit down and share what a week it’s been and here’s why:
Our facial appearance can lead to one of two polar opposites, acceptance or rejection. On Wednesday 26th November we launched the World’s First National Research Centre (NFORC) at the South Bank. It was a joyous and informative event and our Patrons Jon Snow, Alan Rickman and Tony Adams were present as well as whole host of world renowned surgeons and patients. The research centre will define the best treatment for patients suffering from facial injuries, diseases and disorders of the mouth. This has been the culmination of months of planning and hard work and I am incredibly proud of everything we have achieved and the future ahead! Visit NFORC for more information.
I love rocking a red lip and what better time than Christmas party season to show you my Top 5 Favourite Red Lipsticks. I honestly think that red isn’t just for parties but a really great colour to throw on to add something special to any everyday makeup look. Hope you enjoy x
I bought this shade months ago after being inspired by this Kim Kardashian photo. The lipstick she is wearing is Nars Shiap but after I tried it on in Space NK, I found that it was quite drying on the lips. I resolved to hunt down a Nars Shiap dupe and found a near perfect colour match in Rimmel’s Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in Shade 20.
This is a high intensity cool pink fushia lipstick and the colour is insane.
Does it emphasise your lips? Erm yes! and that means that all other makeup should be toned down in order to maximize the focus on the lips.
Would I recommend? Definitely – goes on easily, lasts well, affordable and most importantly -I feel like a rock star wearing this!
If you love orange lipsticks, then you’re going to fall in love with MAC’s Morange. Check out how bright it is! It is insane! On first appearance, it can look intimidating as it’s so orange and vibrant but I urge you to give it a go it you are a bold lipstick lover. You will love it!
I really like it on my olive skin tone and it goes on really smoothly as it’s a cream sheen finish. It’s highly pigmented and is definitely a summer lipstick shade. It can definitely try and compete with the rest of your makeup so I’d recommend dialing down the eyes and not going to heavy on your base. Finish off with a touch of peach blush to tie the whole look together.
This was a lovely birthday present given by my friend Ling. I’m one for carrying brushes in my makeup bag for retouches and for transforming from a day to night look. The compact tube is made from metal and keeps the dinky glass brushes clean.
The set includes
Angled Brow Brush
Flat Eyeliner Brush
Shadow Fluff Brush
Eye Smudger Brush
I really like the shadow fluff brush and eye smudger brush as they are very soft and blend eyeshadows nicely. I’ve found the bristles on the angled brow brush and flat eyeliner brush a little rough and haven’t used these as much.
I really like the idea of compact brushes to go rather than packing full length brushes into my daily makeup bag – less to carry around!
So I tend to get a little excited when I am at Gatwick – I love checking out what’s on sale on the makeup counters. Check my latest video to see what I picked up! The MAC lipsticks are P-H-E-N-O-M-E-N-A-L!
