Why the right tools are just as important as the products!

I’m a firm believer that the tools in a girl’s make-up bag are just as essential as the products, so I’m delighted to be able to tell you all about the lovely Sue Moxley’s gorgeous range of pro-tools, which are designed especially with this premise in mind. If you’ve never tried out make-up tools before and are nervous at the prospect of doing so, (quite simply) don’t be. Since I began using several new different tools whilst applying my make-up, my time has become far less consumed with putting on my face (and wiping the foundation off my hands), which…

The Ultimate Christmas Gifting Guide 2016

I’m both slightly smug and embarrassed to say that I started Christmas shopping back in September. When it comes to all things festive, I absolutely love getting into the holiday spirit early because once the 25th arrives, it all seems over too quickly – so I figure why not make the most of the build up! This year, I decided to put together a mammoth Christmas gifting guide for all my favourite finds – featuring suitable presents for every member of the extended family. Focusing on food, interiors, beauty, fashion and other quirky gifts, hopefully it will inspire even the…

Well perhaps the better way of explaining it is that I don’t have any technique of doing so. I just sort of splodge it on and hope for the best. I pour a dollop of foundation onto my fingers and haphazardly blend it in, while my idea of contouring is simply putting as much bronzer under my cheekbones as I can get away with before it starts looking odd. But then I know I’m not the only one. Although…

Champneys Detox In A Box

January is definitely the staple month associated with the word ‘detox’. The month fuelled by mince pies, mulled wine and pigs in blankets (heart eye emoji) has finally come to an end and we’re all looking to the year ahead, fixated on it becoming a healthy one. Although dairy-free me didn’t have the ability to indulge in mince pies and chocolate (oh, I wish I did though), I entered 2016 feeling as though I needed a re-vamp of my diet and lifestyle. Okay, maybe not a whole re-vamp (which is unattainable) but a little tweak. I worked myself silly over…

An interview with: Sue Moxley!

After being made up by make-up artists around the world during her successful modelling career, Sue Moxley was inspired to become involved in make-up herself and worked her way up to the top of her career as a valued make-up artist to many celebrities. In 2007, she launched her own collection of make-up ‘Famous by Sue Moxley’ which is sold exclusively in Superdrug and has proven to be extremely popular. Sue currently writes a beauty column for several online blogs and magazines, so it’s an absolute pleasure to have been able to interview her this week. Sue was kind enough…
