If you’re looking for a volume mascara that will make your lashes go wow then the Lancome Big Monsieur Mascara is the one for you. It gives great volume to lashes that are in desperate need and totally open up your eyes. If its one thing that I never leave home without is mascara. I suffer from barely there lashes that need a serious pick me up and this one is the business. I have been testing the mascara on myself as well as models and beacuse Shannon (model above) looks better in pics than I do I thought I would use her image instead of mine.

A while back I did hair and makeup for local SA designer Tamara Cherie for her SS17/18 collection. Its definitely her best collection yet with gorgeous colours and materials and a whole lot of sequin. Of course being the shopaholic and absolutely love fasion I had to buy a few pieces from the collection. Now I am one of those people that needs a lot of tops for all occasions. I think I have lots count on how mant I have but you need for all occassions whether casual or dressy. What I love about Tamara’s collection is you can mix it up and either be really smart or dress it down with a pair of jeans or denim skirt. Click here to see her latest range.

This week is definitely a red lip kind of week with all these lovely products landing on my desk to test out. I shot for Glamour Magazine for their January main fashion editorial and the theme Studio 54. Each girl had a different look to make them all individual. For Fran I went gold eyes and a bold red lip using one of the gorgeous new Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks. Red is one of those colours that will always be on trend and makes everything look chic, pretty and so out together. Plus what’s a studio 56 look without lipstick and a bit of Chanel???

If you don’t follow fashion week the ombre red lip is a beautiful trend that I just had to try out on my beauty story. The lip was seen in the Helmut Lang NYFW SS18 show and it caught my eye staright away. I love the simlicity of the look with the dark and the bright red. For this look I combined the two lip colours from the new Rimmel Stay Matte collection. These bad boys landed on my desk lask week and I out them to the test on the model and on myself. You’ll be happy to know they have a great colour pay off, super comfortable and also kiss proof.

The new Filorga Oil-Absolute literally just landed on my desk and I just couldn’t wait to share. I am a massive lover of facial oils so couldn’t wait to try. For my shoot for UK sports brand Lucas Hugh my model needed a little hydration so this was the perfect opportunity to out it to the test. Its the perfect solution for exhausted skin that needs that extra love. What I love is that its not super oily like some facial oils, it literally melts into the skin making it look so beautiful. The Oil-Absolute is the first oil serum that’s a six-in-one that reactivates the skin and corrects all the signs of anti-ageing:
