In my recent Beauty Stars of 2018, you might remember that I handed out just one award for loose powder and just one for pressed. Although my views on pressed powder remain the same (there is only one!), I have been testing another loose powder for some weeks now – Charlotte’s Genius Magic Powder. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to test it sufficiently before the end … Continue reading [REVIEW] Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Genius Magic Powder
One of the things I’ve learnt on my makeup journey so far is that no matter how much you love a brand, the chances of you loving every single product made by that brand are vanishingly small!

In spite of what some beauty gurus and influencers would have you believe, there is no “one true way”. However you do it, it works. If you spend 2 … Continue reading An Average Morning
One of the pleasures of writing this blog is that I get to talk at length about some of my favourite things. Primer is one of those things! My relationship with Primer goes back quite a long way, really. Somewhere around about 5 years ago, I was having lunch with two of the most beautiful women I’ve ever known, both dyed-in-the-wool makeup experts, both never … Continue reading [REVIEWS] Let’s talk about Primer!
