It's just occurred to me how much time I spend 'diving' into my local Boots or Superdrug to get supplies for my kit and it's strange I've never written a post specifically about products stocked in these stores. Here are some of my favourites for under £10.

In a great range of sizes perfect for at home or you kit. You can see exactly what's in there (essential if you have two suitcases full of makeup like me) and know that nothings spilled and everything is neat and in order. 

I absolutely love pigments for creating a strong look and at a quarter the price of some other brands you can afford to buy, play and experiment.

I go through lashes like there's no tomorrow - especially for my private clients who adore them. These particular ones in the range "Oh Honey" are soft and fluffy with a slight flick at the outer corners - great for all eye shapes.

From the amazing Pixi Woos girls - I only have one brush from the range and absolutely love it. The setting brush is perfect for powder touch ups and the right size for around the nose, chin and forehead. Must invest in more!

Great for mens grooming or a super natural look on the lashes or brows. A friend recently said she uses it over the top of mascara to separate her lashes more. I literally use it on every single job! Boots also regularly do some great deals which means you can get money off or even free - love it.

I recently borrowed this from a friend and was very reluctant to give it back. Yet another product I have vowed to invest in the whole line (not a bank breaker as there's only three in the range).

Yes, it's been far too long since I've posted anything - the the truth is I've been slammed!

So, to apologise here is another fantastic backstage video, this time from the amazing Lisa Eldridge as she works on Lindsey Wixson for the June issue of British Vogue. I always tend to think of Eldridge working with natural and neutral palettes, so this has served as a timely reminder that she is a fantastic all-round make-up artist.


Check out Lisa's online tutorials on her website here

I was excited to note her use of Myface Cosmetics Blingtones on the eyes for that wet, iridescent look. The range of Blingtones have been a staple product in my kit for some time now - full pigment payoff with a silver highlight which melts into the skin giving a glossy texture that looks like liquid. Here I used them on Charlotte Jaconelli for her Red Carpet appearance.

Here are two of the fantastic colours from the fantastic Myface range - click here to go to their website

Red Carpet look for Britain's Got Talent Finalist Charlotte Jaconelli

On Monday I had the pleasure of doing the Makeup and Hair for Britians Got Talent finalists Charlotte and Jonathan for them to attend the Pride of Britain Awards. Here's how I achieved Charlotte's Red Carpet look.

Charlotte has fantasic skin and doesnt need very much at all. The products I used were:

Prep: Crealine by Bioderma to cleanse and Embryolisse Cream Lait Moisturiser

Foundation: Myface Mymix Foundation
