My 5 ‘And-Repeat’ Beauty Buys

I came late to the make-up game in life, but in the absence of a large pair of sunglasses or an Instagram filter, everyone can do with a little clever artistry to enhance one’s natural fabulousness.  I used to simply be all about the finger tips and the lips, but hundreds of fashion shoots later, lots of new and exciting make-up trends, not to mention things I seein instagram accounts…these are the five beauty products I use daily – and buy – on repeat. Ahhh that little trip to the Harrods beauty hall, or Fenwicks not to forget duty free shops, to restock my supplies is a sacred endorphin-rush of a ritual all in itself.

Paris, the pint-sized day and a half, one night visit version

Paris. Paris. Paris and croissants. Buttery, bite-sized deliciousness. Paris. Paris. Paris. Chanel. Oh là là tweeds, pearls and well dressed girls. I found myself on the brand spanking new Eurostar one afternoon two weeks ago swooshing off to Paris slap bang during fashion week on a last minute ‘voulez-vouz’ mission. No, not an illicit rendez-vous but an exciting interview for Vogue China – a young media mogul and street style icon. I can’t tell you who until the magazine comes out. Shhh.

Pops of Pink

I can buy nothing forever and then along comes a shoe. Shoes. Shoes. Shoes. It’s the first thing I ever bought on the internet. Thank you net-a-porter. It’s what got me into trouble constantly with my shoots at the Daily Mail: ”Natalie your shoes on the shoot are too expensive.” I know. But aren’t they just beautiful! It’s the one item of clothing I always carried in my onboard handbag that one time when Heathrow was having a bit of an ongoing baggage crisis. My theory was simple: if I had my favourite go with everything sandals (Manolo Blahniks) then lose my luggage and I can build up looks from the heels upwards…even if it involved wearing a paper bag.

The One: Max at Michaeljohn

It’s not just the intricacies in the art of husband-hunting so finely played out in Pride & Prejudice by Mrs Bennett and her girls that can pose that all encompassing dilemma of finding The One. When it comes to your hair it’s sort of the same thing to. So I was very happy to discover many years ago the Holy Grail of fabulous hair, Max Coles at Michaeljohn. The One. He has flounced, bounced, glossed, trimmed, re-shaped, rebooted my hair so perfectly that I wished there were ways of having some sort of cloning for those days and my holidays when The One is not available.  Read the rest of this entry »

Sweat. Shower. Swish with Core-Collective and CitySwish

Any opportunity and excuse to have my hair done is in my opinion a good opportunity. No excuse needed. So I didn’t mind having to work out before my blow out. Whilst I’ve finally find a form of exercise other than swimming that is so me, namely barre, it’s always good to shake things up every now and then. I had just been talking over my usual morning coffee at Cafe Phillies about trying out the hip and happening new Core-Collective Gym a stones throw away when I received an impossible to turn-down and generous invitation to: Sweat.Shower.Swish.
