Introducing the Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Light Therapy Acne Mask | Advertorial

Sunday, 2 April 2017

Sometimes, it can be the little things in life which can be the scariest when you have acne. When my skin was at its worst, I remember well the feeling of looking in the mirror and being unhappy with what I saw reflected back at me. Knowing that I had a dinner event, or a party to go to often caused me so much anxiety and worry that more often than not – I would cancel my plans and rearrange for 'another time'.

But what if those spotlight moments where it feels like the whole world is staring at your skin rather than your eyes happen every day?

How to Live The London Look - Advertorial

Friday, 27 January 2017

If there's one thing I love, It's makeup and style with a bit of grit. My style has always veered on the edgier side, and often the brightest colour you'll find in my wardrobe is Khaki Green.
As a teenager I was obsessed with skateboarding, punk music, alternative fashion and generally rebelling against the system.

When Rimmel London invited me to take part in their very first RimmelRoadTrip, I was super excited to revisit my old teenage stomping ground in Cardiff and give Fleur De Force a tour of the city. As a teen, many Saturday's were spent skateboarding through the city centre with my friends, Listening to music, sitting by the fountains & attending music shows. It felt like the city was alive, and as teenager, image was everything.

Stranger Things Eleven Makeup & Costume Tutorial

Thursday, 6 October 2016

Anyone else as obsessed with Stranger Things as me? YES? Well then this is the Tutorial for you! 
I wanted to take this costume to the next level, so custom made an Eggo handbag to go with it. I feel like Eleven would love it, and I do too! 

It's super easy to do, and I've actually been wearing the handbag as an everyday throw on my shoulder kinda bag and been getting the most insane compliments on it - people can't believe I made it! I suppose it's the glossy acrylic box that does that? 

The bag it's self is a super cheap acrylic handbag I purchased on eBay HERE for less than £10!! 

I then roped in my ever patient and talented BF to help make a template that fit the exact measurements of the bag. It's so simple to do, just download and print out the PDF we created HERE, cut it out carefully along the outside, fold and pop into the bag! Secure on the inside with a touch of scotch tape and you'll be ready to go before you can even say demogorgon! 

Happy Halloween!

The Marc Jacobs Beauty Airblush Duo Launch

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

Sometimes an email lands in my inbox, and I squeal a little with excitement. This was definetly the case recently I was invited to L.A, California for the launch of the brand new Marc Jacobs Beauty Airblush Duo.
Set in the goreous Beverly Hills Hotel, the launch took place over brunch in the beautiful hotel gardens, and just oozed old Hollywood glamour.

Gilbert Soliz, head makeup artist for Marc Jacobs Beauty was on hand to give demonstrations using the Airduo Blush range (inspired by one of the first celebrity makeup Artists – Way Bandy) and it was incredible to hear about how Bandy and Jacobs were friends and club kids together back in their heyday.

Inspired by the creative vision and styles of Way Bandy, the range is all about beautifully draped cheeks, using a silky soft air whipped pressed powder. Available in 5 different shades and suitable for all skin tones, the blush contains a fusion of lighter and deeper shades with each palette being hand filled and inspired by vintage cigarette cases.

The Lines and Last Night Airblush Duo is my favourite of the bunch, with it's gorgeous golden peachy tones, it's incredibly flattering on fairer skin tones. Long lasting and buildable to truly sculpt your cheeks for that Way Bandy look, it has been a struggle to go a day without wearing this blush since it has come into my life.

Priced at £28.00 and available exclusively today at John Lewis and in-store on Oxford Street on 1st September in the UK.Also available in Sephora in the US, these blushes are worth checking out and welcoming into your makeup bag.
