  • Word Up Beauty

    Word Up Beauty

    A friend who said that a man had admired her tankles was confused until he pointed to her  bronzed ankles: apparently tankles = tanned ankles. This is known in linguistics as a blend or portmanteau word made by joining parts of two words to make a third.

    Whether you're baking in the desert sun at Coachella or up to your knees in mud in front of the Pyramid Stage at Glasto, BeautyMART can reveal that despite the geographical and climatic differences, there are only four important beauty considerations for festivals: hair, make-up, legs and wet wipes.

  • How to Drop 10 Years Using Facial Massage

    This week, I went back to beauty school to learn some of the tips and tricks of facialist Alexandra Soveral at her Skin Revolution Workshop that helps you achieve her signature uplifted look at home. I'd say that facials are my all time favourite beauty treatment, especially the massage part. It always makes a huge difference, not only to my skin but the shape of my face, redefining its contours and lifting things back to where they used to be many years earlier. However I've always been on the
  • Why We're All Mascara 'Wardrobing'

    Why We're All Mascara 'Wardrobing'

    I follow a secret practice that I've only recently dared admit to: that I not only own more than one mascara (25 at the last count…), but that I use more than one - sometimes three -  each time I do my lashes: I'm mascara wardrobing!  {...}

  • The Scent Shipping News

    The Scent Shipping News

    Certain products sold online in the UK can't be shipped abroad such as hairspray, deodorant and other aerosols, nail polish and remover and certain fragrances that contain flammable ingredients which could prove hazardous in transit. But not all perfumes are created equal. With the growth of online retail, shipping limitations have sparked a trend for solid perfumes, roll-ons and pure essential oil scents that contain no alcohol or fixatives and can be safely shipped across the globe. Here are

  • Why I'm Mad About Muslin Cloths

    Why I'm Mad About Muslin Cloths

    I've been collecting - and using - muslin face cloths since Liz Earle launched her brand with Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 20 years ago and over that time I've amassed a pile (worryingly, 47 at the last count… does this make me a hoarder?).

  • Sleep: it's the New Water

    Sleep: it's the New Water

  • Cobbler's Kids...

    Cobbler's Kids...

    Cobbler's kids go without shoes is something I heard throughout my childhood and it was always a snide comment by someone in the family in relation to the state of my hair.

    My dad is a hairdresser so was expected to keep me coiffed and girl like.

    LFW AW15: Backstage Beauty Report

    It's my last day of LFW as I have to get back to my day job at BeautyMART. But it's been huge fun, filled with exciting new looks, some hilarious moments as well as a lot of bad for me but delicious food.

    I start the day at the LFW Beauty Monitor Beauty Lounge, at the Mayfair Hotel, but they're closed. Instead I grab a picture of the Anya Hindmarch Sticker Shop window - yep, that's me in the reflection - never could get my photo angles right. {...}
