National Television Awards

We had an absolute ball in London for the NTA’s in January with our Fake Bake family.

It was definitely a long day of hair and make up but we met so many amazing people and had a great night watching the show from the Fake Bake box and then at the after party.

A highlight had to be bumping into Ant & Dec at the red carpet!

Roll on next year.

Michelle Heaton

It was a pleasure doing Michelle Heaton’s make up for the National Television Awards in London in January.

Michelle has really beautiful skin so we kept it soft and glowy with minimal foundation – I used Mac face and body for a light coverage.

Eyes were a very soft neutral from a Tom Ford quad which I think is called Mink – and we created soft fluttery lashes using a mix of medium and short individual lashes by Ardell.

Heavenly Highlighters

Highlighters are the finishing touch to any make up look.

I prefer powder highlighters, which I apply with a fan brush, sometimes spritzing the brush with a setting spray beforehand to intensify the highlight (I use Mac Fix Plus).

Here are my top pick of powder highlighting products.

Products to help Roaccutane dryness.

I’ve been taking the acne drug Roaccutane for about 5 months now.

It is definitely working – a little slower than I expected – but it does cause extreme dryness.

I have tried countless products to alleviate the dryness & these are my ultimate saviours.

E45 bath oil is so soothing & E45 lotion is easily absorbed into the skin – both are very budget friendly – you want to be generous with application so this is important.

Embryollise is a cult product amongst make up artists & it’s soothing, easily absorbed texture is perfect for sensitive dry skin.  I use this in the morning & at night I use it with a few drops of Trilogy rosehip oil added for extra moisture & a vitamin boost.

Dr Lipp is by far the best lip balm I have found – dry cracked lips has been the most irritating side effect and this is the only lip balm which keeps working past the ten minute mark.

Egyptian Magic Balm is another cult product that has several uses.  I use it as a mask on the nights that my skin feels even drier than usual.

E45 bath oil £6 Amazon

E45 lotion £5 Amazon

Embryollise £13 Boots

Dr Lipp £10.80 Beauty Bay

Egyptian Magic Balm £20 Amazon
