Fellas listen up: Nothing says ‘I am crazy about you’ better than a perfume jewel box such as this one (unless you want to spend more and happen to have a Bugatti parked up ready for Christmas morning). When it comes to perfume, Dior is one of my favourite brands. They just get it spot on, every time. Gift it to me in a jewel box and I’m literally going to need peeling off the ceiling. For anyone who isn’t familiar with this scent, it brings forth a delicate explosion of ylang-ylang, Damascus rose, Indian jasmine and Indian tuberose.

I love to use it as a liner, then apply it directly to my entire lips. It is so good, that often, I do not need to follow with a lipstick. If you haven’t tried out Illamasqua yet, I recommend you put it on your to-do list. You won’t regret.

If there is one look that never fails on a date, it’s the smoky eye. One reason Morphe is a hero makeup brand is their stand-out eye shadow palettes. They always get it right on the mark. For daytime usage, I turn to neutrals. Mixing them up, I can create the necessary alert, yet subtly appealing image that works. In the evening this palette’s sexy, smoky eye colour effects are just the ticket. Morphe’s highly-pigmented and silky soft eye shadow palette combine both matte and delicate shimmery hues, that are too good to miss. Look fantastic’s choices are Amazing.

Created by world-renowned experts and bio-tech scientists (not quite sure what the job of a biotech scientist entails, but it sounds like these people would know their stuff). Basically, the components of their magical potion come from a biotech and medical angle – and in my opinion they are sheer genius. I can only go on the effect a product has on my hair and whether it delivers good results. The Living Proof has to be one of my top 3 haircare brands. If you are looking for an awesome multi-tasker – this has to be at the top of the list. A little of this product offers a targeted treatment by lovingly conditioning and strengthening your locks. I say ‘lovingly’ as when you apply the treatment you will feel so pampered, it’s as if Living Proof literally cares for your hair! This haircare treatment styles your hair like no other. If it were a fella, it would be ‘the ONE’. Polished and smooth? I think so!

3.Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner (50ml) Retail: £18 (200ml) www.lookfantastic.com

Their toner feels practically weightless and combines organic essential oils that effectively remove all impurities from the skin. Moreover, salicylic acid is included to further dissolve any debris within the pores, ensuring acne and spots are kept at bay, and even aids in smoothing the skin!  For optimal results use both morning and night. This is yet another product I seriously could not be without!

Faux fur was all over the autumn/winter runways this year and the trend is guaranteed to keep you looking chic and toasty warm too.

Available in both mid-neutral and mid-grey shades.

This has to be my most favourite of them all – I’m thinking it’s a divine mash-up of David Koma and Marc Jacobs. I do not even need to say anything – just do what I did: look at the picture, drool for 5 seconds, check size and availability, order so quickly it’s like your life depends on it. Then breathe a sigh of relief, feel a sense of sheer accomplishment and sit on the floor by your door until the postie arrives! Job done.

My Favourite Beauty Finds Of The Week: 6 Amazing Buys!

Hey Lovelies!

Each week I am sent various beauty items to test and review. It’s seriously the best job ever! After arduously checking out many, the following 6 beauty finds offer star-like qualities and are a must-have for anyone who loves beauty and a bargain. #Happy!

1, Max Factor Pan Stick (In Cool Copper), £5.47, www.amazon.co.uk

This isn’t the first time I have tried (and loved) Max Factor’s foundation stick and it certainly won’t be the last! Having tested pretty much every concealer and foundation on the market, this one keeps a firm footing at the very top. Firstly, it doubles up as both a concealer and foundation. If you have tried this you will know how seamlessly it blends into the skin, creating an instantly flawless second skin result. Furthermore, the Pan Stick succeeds where others fail on the most important factor – it lasts longer than a couple of weeks. Love, love, love!

2. The Superstar 22 Inch by Easilocks, £44.99, www.cultbeauty.co.uk

Oh…My…God. I think I have died and been reincarnated into a L’Oréal advert. This hair piece truly rocks. Made from non-human hair, yet these locks look unbelievably real. They would win in a Pepsi challenge against high price tag hair pieces any day of the week. The only point I should make is you must backcomb over the piece with your natural hair to achieve a blended-in and Insta-ready finish.

3.L’Oréal Infallible 24H Matte Liquid Foundation In Vanilla, £7.99 (30ml), www.boots.com

Should you be searching for a foundation that offers full cover, doesn’t cake and is reasonably priced, check out this one by L’Oréal. The long-lasting foundation provides a beautiful matte finish that even works on dry and more mature skin types. Simply gorgeous. Want even more perks? Check out the price!

4.Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara, £25, www.charlottetilbury.com

It takes a lot to push me out of my MAC mascara comfort zone. However, upon checking out the sassy box I couldn’t wait to give it a go. This mascara in Black Vinyl makes me want to cry tears of joy (and then be even happier as it does NOT smudge one bit). Combining lash lengthening and thickening ingredients, the best-selling mascara will actually increase your lash thickness by a whopping 50% after just one single application! Furthermore, Legendary Lashes Volume 2 does not clump (HUGE PLUS) and offers a luscious lash finish of which any celeb would be proud. Each time I checked my lashes in the mirror I was very happy to see it hadn’t smeared under the eyelid or budged at all. My eyes remained in perfect and fit-for-a-Princess condition for the entire day and evening. A total win. Hooray!

5.The Ordinary High-Endurance Silicone Primer, £3.90 (30ml), www.lookfantastic.com

Everyone needs a good primer, but no one needs to spend a fortune. Behold The Ordinary’s Primer. Totally affordable and works like a dream. Your makeup is in place in the morning and is in exactly the same spot when you return. The Ordinary, you are awesome! What more need I say?

6.Collection Incredibrow Semi-Permanent Brow Gel In Light/Medium, £3.99, www.superdrug.com

Those of you who love gorgeous vegan beauty finds, you need to check out this semi-permanent eyebrow gel by Incredibrow. In the box you will find the gorgeous brow gel complete with eye applicator that achieves effortlessly flawless results. If you don’t enjoy waking up and scaring the hell out of your other half due to a distinct lack of brow, that makes you look – well, totally freaky and a bit scary, this is a must-have. If, however, frightening the crap out of him when he opens his weary hungover eyes is one of those long-term relationship amusements, maybe give this one a miss!

7 Tips For Keeping The Dreaded Lurgy At Bay

Hey Lovelies!

Courtesy of UK weather, today was a taster of the bleak and hideous days, soon to become a semi-permanent fixture on our doorsteps – and it wasn’t pretty. Somehow the week transformed from warm and sunny happiness to unnecessarily harsh rain. Hang on, what happened to autumn? Never mind, apparently, we are just skipping that season this year and going straight for the killer winter. This year do not let the dreaded lurgy catch you off guard. The flu jab will only cover one strain of the bug, but don’t panic. Check these 7 tips for keeping nasty cold and flu germs at bay.

1.Immune System Super-Powers With Vitamin C: Try Vitabiotics Ultra Vitamin C Fizz, £4.95, www.vitabiotics.com

On occasions when I feel the need for a vitamin boost, I always use Vitabiotics. Their Ultra Vitamin C Fizz combines 1000mg vitamin C along with zinc to enable optimal absorption and benefits. These key ingredients work in unison to ensure your immune system is working on all cylinders, keeping you protected and the dreaded lurgy at bay. Furthermore, vitamin C supports a healthy nervous system and increases collagen production. This is a great alternative for those who hate to take tablets. It tastes like fizzy orange juice, making consumption a breeze. Vitabiotics also provide a tablet version too.

2.Hand Sanitizer In Bag At All Times: Try Carex Bubblegum Hand Gel, £1.45 (50ml), wwwsuperdrug.com

It is so important to keep your hands clean and bug-free during these sneeze-splattered months. I love Carex’s travel-friendly hand gel in bubble gum. It’s fun, fits in your bag with ease and gets the job done! No worries.

3.Handkerchief At The Ready (For Doctors’ Waiting Rooms)

Credit: Giphy

Be it taking your children, going for your MOT, blood tests or whatever – visits to the doctor’s surgery are generally unavoidable. Also unavoidable are the people who were never taught by their parents to cover their mouths upon coughing. You are guaranteed to be squeezed into a seat in a busy doctor’s waiting room between two of them, with their apparent mission being to infect you. Take my advice, don’t worry about offending them (they don’t). Spend the hour sat waiting for your overdue appointment with a handkerchief over your mouth.

4.Shopping gloves (trolleys and baskets are filthier than your toilet): Try Top Glove Powdered Blue Vinyl Gloves, £3.54 (Box of 100), www.justgloves.co.uk

I don’t want to make anyone paranoid, but were you aware that trolleys and baskets carry more germs than a toilet seat? Gross huh? This is the place where (other than the doctor’s) you are probably going to catch the seasonal bug. Don’t let it happen. Carry some disposable gloves with you and bang, illness averted.

5.Flu Jab

The flu jab has received a bit of bad press of late. Understandable in some respect, given there are so many strains of flu and the flu jab doesn’t safeguard you from all of them. That said, very young, very old or those who are immune compromised should take the extra precaution and have the flu jab on offer. Remember asthmatics and those with egg allergies should consult their medical practitioner beforehand.

6.Wash Hands Regularly

This is probably the most important thing to remember. Washing your hands often ensures those dreaded germs are kept away.

7.Take ColdZyme Mouth Spray, £15.75, www.amazon.co.uk

Other than carrying a hanky around you can also arm yourself with this mouth spray. It forms a protective shield in your mouth, so anyone nearby who wasn’t taught to cover their mouths when coughing cannot infect you even if they are hosing you in the face!

The Best Ways To Diminish And Prevent Crepey Skin

Hey Lovelies!

Recently, I have been asked a lot about crepey skin treatments that will actually work.  Age gives us so many gifts: experience, memories and wisdom. Oh yes, it also provides a generous supply of stiff joints, wrinkles and – wait – crepey skin, too! Hang on, what exactly is this age-related extra and how the HELL can we get rid of it?

Read on to discover the truth about this unwanted condition and how to best treat it.

What Is Crepey Skin?

It sounds like it belongs to a Halloween special and for good reason – it’s the stuff of nightmares. Crepey skin is basically sagging, wrinkled skin that affects the larger areas on your body. Imagine a really large wrinkle. Targeting thinner points on the skin, you may find them on the inner arms (around elbows and under the eyes). However, if you are really lucky, they can reach other places, too. In short, it’s a total let-down by your body.

What Causes This?

The number one cause other than aging (as is usually the case) tends to be sun damage. However, dehydrated skin and losing weight can contribute to the issue.

How Can We Prevent Crepey Skin?

1.SPF

NeoStrata Sheer Physyical Protection SPF

I’ve said it before and I will say it again – a good SPF is the vital tool in our anti-aging mission.  Always choose an SPF in addition to your moisturiser and foundation (even when they include an SPF). I love NeoStrata’s Sheer Physical Protection SPF 50, £29.99, www.facethefuture.co.uk

2. Hyaluronic Acid

A key component to keeping hydration at optimal levels and locking in moisture. Hyaluronic acid will help in this quest. A great and affordable product is The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, £7.87 (30ml), www.amazon.co.uk

This amazing product contains ultra-pure, vegan hyaluronic acid!

3.Body/Facial Oils

Maringa oil is incredible for evening out skin texture, repairing and preventing tissue damage. The result is fewer wrinkles and thwarting the dreaded crepe paper look.

4. Moisturiser

When it comes to slowing down the aging process, moisturiser is one product not to forget. Apply in the morning and at night to keep pesky crepey skin at bay.

How To Get Rid Of Crepey Skin

The most effective treatments include:

Retinol

Ese retinol serumthederm inteniv

This ingredient will improve the appearance of skin texture and should be used regularly to achieve and maintain results. Do remember skin can be sensitive to retinoids and it can also further dry the skin, so always lather on the moisturiser and oils. I love Esthederm’s Intensive Retinol Serum, £49, www.facethefuture.co.uk

Face and Body: Laser

Visit your skincare clinic for laser treatment. A skin resurfacing laser will treat the areas of concern, triggering the formation of collagen production and diminishing the appearance of crepey skin. This can work out a tad pricey, but if you really want it gone this may be worth considering.

For The Neck: Cryolipolysis CoolSculpting (For Where There Has Been Excess Weight)

A tightening procedure generally administered to the neck or body where there are localised areas of fat. It targets and destroys the fat achieving good results.

Fillers

Providing an instant plumping effect and stimulation new collagen production, the treatment may be costly, but will definitely do the trick (for a while). I feel that Sculptra is a good choice for such skin concerns.

A/W 19 Beauty Trends So Good You’ll Be Glad Summer Is Over

Hey Lovelies!

 Hot and sunny days may be drawing to a close, leaving us a tad deflated.  Should you need some inspiration to revamp your look and revive your mood, fear not. Here are 5 gorgeous A/W19 beauty trends so good you’ll be glad the summer is over. In fact, they will keep you smiling until Christmas.

1.Extreme Cat Eye

We saw Louis Vuitton and Dior’s models sporting the cat eye ++ and huge black bottom lashes. This extreme look may take some practice and I recommend a liquid eyeliner for achieving success. One of my favourites is Rimmel’s Wonderwing Eyeliner in black, £5.99, www.lookfantastic.com

2.Deep Burgundy/ Bold Red Lips

Chloe, Louis Vuitton and Tommy Hilfiger presented models looking incredible with either deep burgundy or bold crimson lips. (Both matte and silky featured on the runway). The rest of the complexion remained mainly minimal (as is a key trend again). This really sets your lips as one awesomely-powerful signature look.

I love Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme, £31, www.chanel.com

3.Oh-So Dewy Skin

Similarly to SS/19, the less-is-more complexion remains to be a much sought-after look; thus, models across the board rocked this look during Paris fashion week. As we see (and love) this minimal makeup concept, the need to support it with super-dewy skin must stay high on the agenda. For this, ensure you are using your facial oils and illuminator. I’m loving Iconic London’s illuminator, £30, www.iconiclondon.com. It literally transforms even partied-until-dawn skin into a complexion of utter dewy radiance. So good!

4.A Touch Of Neon

Neon eyeshadows were a huge hit on the runways. Should you be feeling a little sassy and want to make a statement, splash some neon (light blues, pinks and purples were seen everywhere) on those lids. Make sure you keep the rest of your complexion as minimal as possible so as to avoid the clown! I’m obsessed with Huda Beauty’s Neon Pink Obsessions Palette,  £27, www.cultbeauty.co.uk

Combining 9 shadows brimming with richly-pigmented vibrancy and oozing sass, this is one palette you can’t be without.

5.Blushing

Going with the minimal makeup look, and applying a little blush works like a dream.On the runways we saw Chanel’s models demonstrate the sheer magnitude of jaw-dropping impact this delicate look can achieve. Fresh and simple, yet immensely beautiful. To achieve this look, opt for minimal makeup, a few drops of dewy illuminator and a sweep of pale pink blush. I love MAC’s Mineralize Blush, £23.50, www.maccosmetics.co.uk
