I’d decided, since I seemed to get my mojo back, I was going to be very organised and post every day… then London Fashion Week arrived! I thought I’d share what I’ve been up to since I last posted.
First up I was doing make up at Jeffrey Michael for My Beautiful Fashion – the show was in Goldsmiths Hall which is an absolutely stunning venue. Our show was sponsored by Rimmel, so all the make up we used was by them. Oscar Alexander was the head make up artist, and also headed the hair – multi-talented!
We used a very small amount of foundation, and used an eyeshadow as blush. The eyes were neutral with definition in the socket, then tightlined, and smudged out liner on the lower lashline. We used Scandaleyes mascara then created the lips using two different lipsticks, a liner and lipgloss. The toenails were painted with Essie Lilac.
This is my model in the lineup, and walking down the catwalk.
And here’s me working on one of the other models before she went on. Check the tallness!
After that I went on over to the Handpicked Media suite at One Aldwych, which again, is a gorgeous location with amazing views over the Thames.
I had such a nice massage there, which was very much needed and left me feeling completely blissed out! I then had a look at the new UGG Australia collections, as they were showcasing there that day. I was really surprised to see so many sleek looking shoes from them – I had always assumed them to be bulky, because of the classic Ugg boot, but there were some really lovely designs. Here is a snap of the new UGG Collection. You can see more of their new shoes on their site here. I love Channing II – swoon!
I then headed home and back into London to watch Jersey Boys with the boyf, we both had a fab time and really enjoyed it. We even had a bit of light entertainment on the streets of Soho in the interval!
On Monday I went back to Somerset House to have my hair cut at the Toni & Guy Blowout Bar situated within the House. They offer their services throughout London Fashion Week, offering clients a cut and blow dry or certain ‘dos’ such as a topknot bun. I had a cut and blow dry and had it dried big and bouncy – I love it! My stylist was so friendly; we didn’t stop chatting, and she did such a good job – bye-bye split ends, hello new hair!
I then popped back to the Handpicked Media suite, where Ted Baker were showing their wares. There were some gorgeous bags, and mens satchels – a stunning mustard cape (which you can see peeking out in the back of this pic) and this dress which I completely fell in love with.
It comes in other colours and some with cap sleeves, but I love it just like this!
Ted’s Beauty Spot were there too – I had my nails Shellaced in dark purple which I’m really pleased with – they look glossy and perfectly painted, which is often hard to achieve with such dark colours.
It was then on to the AOFM Makeup party at DSTRKT where we had a fab night celebrating the success of London Fashion Week – we were joined by Corrie Nielson, Fydor Golan and Jeffrey Michael to name but a few. Here is a pic of me and Jeffrey on the night. He told me his next collection is going to be Little Black Dresses and blazers – looking forward to seeing that!
Then yesterday was my Nan’s 82nd birthday, my daughters first day at nursery school and 2 years since I first met my boyfriend, so it was all rather hectic! Back on track tomorrow, Brownie promise! x
