These Are A Few of my Fave Things

A Golden Investment

posted by Wendy February 5, 2017 0 comments

My Dad has always advised me to invest in gold. And he is always right.

Hallelulah! Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold – Skin Highlighter is back. Another cult item that sold out quickly so I’m overjoyed it’s in stock again- I gave mine away, to a beautiful person. I wasn’t too sad because I knew it was going to a good home.

It’s the most beautiful highlighter and the best way to gild the lily, whatever your skintone. Not to mention it looks amazing on the dressing table! The Bar of Gold contains light-reflecting ingredients to cheer up dull skin and sculpt; it’s also marv for adding a glow, blurring imperfections and adding that special glamourous finish to your look. Use a big brush to sweep it across your cheekbones, forehead, décolletage -and a smaller brush to use it as an eyeshadow, by itself or as a”pop” over your other colours. I use a fingerprint of it in the centre of the lips to boost lip volume.

Recently, on the most amazing project I designed for ABC Studios (I say this proudly because of the subject matter), WHEN WE RISE (coming soon to a screen near you at the end of Feb, at least in North America, not sure about it’s UK release) I had to recreate the look of American disco god, Sylvester. My investment in gold really paid off so thanks for the good advice Dad.

Glossaholics Giveaway

posted by Wendy January 7, 2017 0 comments

Glossaholics! Welcome to my first ever makeup giveaway!

I am as much of a glowaholic as a glossaholic and the new year is a good time to think about reviving your skin and getting a glow back after the busy holidays season.  So I’m giving away an amazing Wonderglow from Charlotte Tilbury Cosmetics, which is a beautiful primer/ moisturiser/all-round amazing thing.

Worn alone it gives a beautiful dewy finish that not only moisturises but reflects light, creating a soft -focus look for you skin and blurring imperfections.  Alternatively, it can be worn under foundation, mixed with your foundation to sheer it out with a glow (this is one of my favourite tricks for camera), or patted over it at highlight points. It’s a hugely versatile beauty product whether you like the look of makeup or not.

Because it has a warm gold undertone and not a pink one, it boosts but doesn’t look metallic or ashy on darker skins yet also compliments lighter ones; basically it’s your skin but better, which is why it’s always in my kit! It’s packed with lots of good things including a form of hyaluronic acid. By the way, Wonderglow won a CEW Insiders Choice Award in 2015, which, if you haven’t heard of it, is like an Academy Award for beauty products.

A glow is as good as a rest!
