Naked Ambitions

This season I plan to keep my makeup looking effortlessly natural as seen at the Isabel Marant latest #SS17 fashion campaign. My naked colour choice for spring, is a nude-rose shade from the organic brand Green People. Damask Rose is a matte-finish lipstick that is easy-to-wear, long wearing and enriched with vitamin E to keep lips nourished, it’s perfect for day and night.

This week i’m loving ELASTICITY+FILLER

I’ll try anything that claims to “improve skin elasticity and plumps up the appearance of deep wrinkles”. I’m also a Hyaluronic acid serum addict and will go to the ends of the earth for it!  I have tried heaps of the stuff on my skin to keep it looking supple, and I must say that I am rather impressed with Eurcerin’s latest skin care offering, the Eucerin ELASTICITY+FILLER range. But can it plump up, tone and hydrate my 46 year old skin?

This is serious skincare that has been specially formulated to tackle anti-ageing concerns. The day and night cream are both lightweight and contain Arctiin (an active which has been shown to accelerate collagen renewal in skin cells*) and Silymarin (a powerful antioxidant which has been shown to help protect collagen and elastin from degrading*). The formula also contains Hyaluronic Acid (yippee) to visibly plump up the appearance of wrinkles. The medical skin caring products are complimented by a smoothing face oil, rich in essential oils, Vitamin E, Lady’s Thistle and Argan oil.

After a week of using the range, my skin does feel extremely plumper, toned, hydrated and more radiant! The Eucerin ELASTICITY+FILLER range also protects skin against pollution. What more could you ask for?

The celebrity approved Eucerin brand is available at Boots and is on special offer.  Buy the Eucerin Anti Age Elasticity Filler Oil 30ml, £23.25 and Anti Age Elasticity Filler Day and Night Cream 50ml, at £19.50 each.

The Emma Watson-Approved Mascara

The Japanese beauty brand DHC is a favourite among celebrities including Emma Watson.

Revealing her beauty secrets to , the Beauty and the Beast actress raves about the leading Japanese brand’s Mascara Perfect Pro Double Protection.

The only mascara I use is from DHC. The thing is, I really, really hate using harsh makeup removers, especially around my eyes. They sting and make my eyes water and don’t feel good to me. But the DHC mascara only comes off in warm water. So I use it on films because if I’m in a tank or it’s raining, then the mascara doesn’t run because it won’t move in cold water. And the brush is really nice. I swear by it.”

I  followed the beauty tip and tried the water-resistant tube-technology Black Mascara – which volumises, lengthens and curls lashes in one. It really is the perfect wand!

DHC Mascara Perfect Pro Double Protection (£15.90) is available at

Pai is the beauty must-have at Isabel Marant AW17

“You want to feed the skin as much as possible. If you start with healthy skin, it means there’s less you have to put on.” – Lisa Butler, lead makeup artist at Isabel Marant AW17



When it came to catwalk beauty looks it was all about careful prepping of complexions at Isabel Marant AW17.  At Paris fashion week  celebrity makeup supremo Lisa Butler used Pai skincare to create glowing skin. Each model was given a signature Pai backstage treatment prior to hair and makeup before hitting the runway.


Formulated with the highest quality organic ingredients to calm and protect sensitive skin, Pai is ideal  for complexions that may have become irritated by travel or constant makeup removal and re-application.

Steal the style and recreate the look at home:

1. Carefully remove existing makeup and impurities with the Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser. Massage in an upward motion across the face and neck to lift impurities. Alcohol and detergent-free, this creamy cleanser creates the perfect hydrated base.


2. Spritz the Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Tonic across the face to refresh skin and calm the senses. The Lotus plant ‘Living Water” in this cooling toner rapidly reduces redness and irritation.

3. Apply the Rosehip BioRegenerate Rapid Radiance Mask across the skin. This buttery mask revitalizes tired faces to create a dewy finish. After 10 minutes, remove with a muslin cloth for gentle exfoliation.

4. To stimulate circulation and reduce puffiness, massage the face with 3-4 drops of the Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil – paying particular attention to the jawline and acupressure points. This bestselling oil infuses the skin with Omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 to deeply condition and create a “lit from within” glow.


5. Follow with a pump of moisturizer for added hydration. Use the Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream for redness-prone skin or the Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream for combination skin to create the perfect base.

6. To protect sensitive eyes and create a smooth base for makeup, apply the Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream around the orbital bone.


7. Lastly, apply the Head To Toe Hero Buriti Balm to the lips and press along the high points of the
face to create a subtle glow.
