Bronzers Aren’t Just for The Summer

Powder Bronzers

Though the summer may be coming to an end (NO!), we can still add a little luminance and glow to our skin all year round – like we’ve been kissed by the sun. And the best way to do this is with a touch of bronzer. (more…)

2008 Holiday Beauty: Red Hot Lips

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

Red Hot Lips

Red lipstick is timeless, and an instant confidence booster. It also seems to be the hottest thing going at the moment. Stars like Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and Rachel McAdams have been spotted wearing it, and it adorned the lips of models at a lot of the spring/summer 2009 runway shows.

The great thing about this Hollywood look is that everyone can pull it off. You have to match your skin tone to the right shade of red and keep the rest of your makeup simple for the look to really pop. Fair skinned beauties who burn easily should go for a true red and those with darker skin and hair can wear warmer reds, the deeper shades. (more…)

My Summer Bag Basics

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

We are in the heart of summer and I am constantly on the go, from morning to night. Meetings, product launches and seeing friends are on my daily agenda. I need my bag to hold the items that will keep me feeling and looking fresh all day long. Here are the 15 items that I currently cannot live without. What are your summer bag basics?

I burn so fast that I need to have it on hand all the time. I use Kinesys SPF 30. It smells great, dries super fast and is non greasy.


What would I do without money…not a lot! Mine was from Winners – they have a great selection and at good prices.

Note pad and pen

I keep it with me and write down the names of great restaurants, shops and any other pertinent info that comes my way. Notepad was $3 and pen was sent to me with my bombshell bargains order.

Keeping those harmful rays out of your eyes is important. I am not sure where I purchased mine from as they are quite old.

Blotting Sheets
Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets are so fabulous. They soak up excess oil and cut the shine but they do not add any additional makeup or powder to your face.


My favourite will always be my Chanel Allure Sensuelle. When it is a little sticky out or I am going from day to evening – a little squirt makes me feel and smell great.

Lip Balm

My current choice is Yonder and Green Moisturising Lip Balm as it keeps my lips feeling soft and supple. I like this product as they use high quality natural ingredients and I kind of liked the idea of it being vegan friendly too.

Cheek Stain
When I am going from day to evening and don’t have the chance to go home I dab a little Tarte Tickled onto the apples of my cheeks to add just a touch of colour to my face. This product is really easy to just pop into your bag and apply when needed.

Breath Freshner
I love those little Listerine Pocket Paks. So tiny yet so tough. No one likes coffee breath!

Headache Tablets
I am prone to migraines and headaches so I keep a little container of Tylenol Extra Strength with me at all times. There is nothing worse than being in a meeting and having a headache start.

Hand and Body Lotion
I have several travel size bottles of lotion that can be thrown into my purse at the last minute. My current favourite is J.R. Watkins Apothecary Aloe and Green Tea. It is very refreshing – perfect for hot summer days and evenings.

Summer is all about gloss! I have two in my bag at the moment: Rimmel Light Beam in 100 in the Mix and MAC Lipglass in Young Spark. The Rimmel gloss is so funny – it has a little mirror on the side and it has a light inside so you can apply at night! What will they think of next?

I would not usually say that eyeshadow should be an item in my bag…but this dual-ended eyeshadow wand from DaLish is fantastic. Swipe a little on your lid and gently smooth and you are done. Smart!

Hair Smoother
When the weather outside gets a little humid – as it is not, my hair gets a mind of its own. I like to be able to smooth it down and stop those stray flyaway hairs from sticking straight up! Recently I was introduced to Herbal Essences Shimmery Nights and it is great for those naughty stray hairs and it also adds a little shimmer to my coif too!
