LB&WL 100ml

Your signature scent

Your favourite scent should be something that’s personal to you…there’s nothing more disappointing than catching a whiff of ‘your’ perfume from every second woman walking down the street. That’s what I like about Jo Malone perfumes; they’re not main-stream, all the scents are really unusual, and you’ll rarely find anyone wearing the same scent as […]

Armani PACKS BLUSHING FABRICBD

Armani Blushing Fabric

Apart from a really good foundation, colour is the next most important make-up essential for the summer. You want to look fresh, natural and obviously gorgeous. So once you have the base sorted (natural, sheer), have a try of Georgio Armani’s Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush, especially if you’re not one for bronzers. Just warm […]

02_TROPIQUES_MINERALE_Golden_Croisette

Bronzed babe

In the market for a new bronzer? To prevent the 80s over-bronzed, dirty look, go for something with a blend of shades, and a little iridescence for a subtle glow. Lancôme’s limited-edition Tropiques Minerale Golden Croisette, with three shades of bronze soleil, rose vibrant and abricot éclatant creates a lovely, natural, sheer finish. €45

L'Occitane Nuage Rouge

Beauty blushing

One of my top make-up ranges this summer has to be L’Occitane’s new Peony Make-up Collection. Not only are they adorably packaged in these original little paper packets, that they look gorgeous, smell divine, they work exceptionally well too. I love the Peony tinted water, which you dab on lips and cheeks. The result is […]

Neo Strata Sheer Hydration SPF 15

Summer skin

For those of you with oily skin looking for a moisturiser that won’t result in that icky shiny look now that the weather’s hotting up a little, Neostrata’s Sheer Hydration SPF 15 might be a good summer choice. The oil-free lotion is clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of dark spots from aging and […]

pink and girlie

Think Pink

The new Chanel summer make-up range has gone all girly with pretty pinks and corals to brighten your look. Pink generally isn’t my colour, but the ‘pop’ Gossimer lip gloss is gorgeous – naturally pink, shiny without the sparkle so perfect for day. The moisturising bronzing powder in Terre D’Or is also a bit of […]

supersmooth shampoo

Hair product of the month!

There’s nothing more irritating than seeing a perfect hair colour fade into blah. But to keep your colour intact for as long as possible, you need to either steer clear of shampooing, which isn’t an option…or go for a good colour conserving hair care range. Pureology SuperSmooth is for colour-treated hair in need of intense […]

Sothys tube

The perfect skin revver-upper…

If your skin’s looking a little dull and could do with a pick-me-up, then fake it with Sothys Bronze illuminator, a complexion enhancer for a radiant and tanned make-up. Wear it on its own, for a natural, summer look, or wear it under your foundation for added glow. €34.65

Art Deco

Great natural bronzers

Art Deco Bronzing Powder Compact has two shads of bronzer for a really even application. Their bronzers are renowned for their natural effect and soft texture, and the compacts last for ages. €28.15

Bronze Goddess

Always judge a book by its cover…

Great make-up should not only make you look great, it should also make you feel great. There’s nothing I love more than a stunning little palette of lipgloss, or a funky little lipstick case. One brand that has consistently produced the most glamorous make-up is Estee Lauder. Gold-rimmed casing, heavy glass bottles, and those gorgeous […]
