Here’s a few of my own personal favourites and kit beauty products I’ve been using lately 🙂 Listed in no particular order!

A product I was introduced to back in January working backstage at London Collections Mens. This light serum helped keep the male models skin looking fresh, glowing and youthful! We applied this prior to moisturising and foundation coverage. 

Clinically proven say goodbye to dull, rough and tired-looking skin. With a golden drop of tsuya skin youthful radiance generator, reactivate your skin’s youth regeneration.

This is now one of my personal favs!

Available online at Shu Uemura  RRP: from £52.50


My latest kit essential! Another product used backstage for London Collections this January. This fantastic product helped to disguise any redness on the male models skin particularly on their ears and hands. Applied prior to foundation/concealer the natural earth minerals in this product provided a sheer green tint to actively counter telltale redness. Also Neutralises, relieves and defends against inflammation and redness induced by skin sensitivity and rosacea

RRP: £34.80 available here


As an official spray tanning stockist for Vita Liberata I was so excited when just recently Vita Liberata kindly sent some products to Presenter Naomi Isted for me to try out in preparation for a Celebrity Launch Party including their Capture the Light Collection.

As used backstage at Temperley SS14. The Capture the Light Collection comprises illuminating skin finishers with Opaque or Translucent coverage which can be used as stand-alone skin perfectors, or alongside the Vita Liberata tanning range to accentuate a natural bronze tan.  

Capture the Light Opaque illuminating skin finishers are considered by beauty experts to be “better than a BB Cream for the Body”.  Translucent illuminating skin finishers offer exceptional iridescence without the coverage.

Here’s how they were used backstage at Temperley with Vita Liberata Founder & CEO Alyson Hogg.

This is a personal and a new kit favourite of mine! 

Available to purchase online here.
