Take Courage This Season

The other day I passed this Japanese maple which had a fiery ombré of orange to red. I immediately felt alive. As this year’s festive season approaches, I wanted to focus on vibrancy. It’s too easy to get trapped in the dregs of lockdown. But before we talk makeup...remember it’s #skinfirst!

Depuffing this holiday season is my focus. Fresh air, herbal teas, Epson salt baths and the new Cryo De-Puffing Edit by 111SKIN. The kit contains some of my favourites, the Sub-Zero De-Puffing Eye Mask, Sub-Zero Energy Facial Mask and the exclusive Cryo Sculpting Tools. They work in a refined balance to stimulate circulation, reduce puffiness and contour the skin for a bright and more awakened result.

Don’t forget to add the extra barrier with the Antioxidant Energising Essence and my forever favourite cream, the Nocturnal Eclipse Cream.

In terms of make-up, keep it alive! Is my mantra. Rich hues of velvety reds, fuchsia pinks and burnt oranges as well as golds reign supreme when you want to push any makeup look to the top. It will transform anything from day to night!

A few tips:

So, let’s play with a little gilding on the eye and if you’re like me and you’re bored with how little dimension there is in the digital world, break free from it by exaggerating with your eye look.

1.

To deepen and mattify the lips, use a crimson-toned powdered blush or loose pigment and press in the centre of lips over your favourite shade of red or pink.

2.

Swipe an intense gold on the lid all the way up to the base of the eyebrow.

PRODUCT SUGGESTIONS:

By no means are these essential, your current collection could house something similar but for that extra touch and lift, I adore Roen Beauty’s Summer Disco Eye or 75 warm eyeshadow palette, the Gold’s are gorgeous. Another favourite of mine is Chanel Les Sombres in LÉGÈRETÉ ET EXPÉRIENCE for a crimson eye palette, Westman Atelier’s Lip Suede Palette, Mac Cosmetics Metallice Loose Pigment in ‘Old Gold’.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
