Interviewed one of my long time insta follow favourites @naomishimada for August issue @harrodsbeauty Magazine. We talked projecting optimism, dance, Japan and what she truly finds beautiful. She was photographed by the talented @callumtoy Makeup @ginakanemakeup hair @markfrancomepainter @clmhairandmakeup nails @nailsby_julia_ styling @sophindap and gardening @jenkayprops beauty assistant @ella_crosbie
LOVE NOTES. I recently put a fragrance supplement together for @harrodsbeauty featuring this still life shoot by @michael_thomas_studio_ and @caseycarey_ it's one of my favourite shoots I've ever worked on of all time. There are so many more amazing shots and beautiful love messages from it so definitely pick up a copy. #beautyshoot #stilllife #perfume

Had lots of questions about these red bikinis 👙. They are a Ltd edition run of my gorgeous friend @kirstyames's (whose fabulous hen I am on in this photo) swimwear line @ayla.swim that she founded with equally gorgeous @heidi_aya. They are brilliant bikinis made from recycled fishing nets and you can also buy these incredible high waisted trousers in matching prints to dial up your daytime beachwear into evening Beach bar attire.
Our of office on 💙 thank you @tomfordbeauty for the snap that I definitely didn't pose for. I have been wearing their Fleur de Portofino and kidding myself I'm on a yacht not a number 85 bus since the trip last week. Insta life 💯, real life 🤪
Today's blue sea had me all Alma Tadema. Spot the odd one out 😉💎🏊 #arthistory #beautyclassics
Mondays 💕 Alexandre-Jean Dubois-Drahonet #arthistory #artbeauty
This babe got hitched and I got to do her makeup. And Rey got to be a flower girl. Best day ever (well, they stretched it out over a weekend actually) . 😍💄💕
What a week over @harrodsbeauty!! Endlessly inspiring working with super women like @miafcollins. Honestly my workplace is just filled with incredible women. I am learning so much from them. ( @staceyduguid @tiffdarke I'm looking at you two too) That Sunday feeling? What Sunday feeling? Love Mondays. 📸 @tomchapman8 (the poor man practically lives at Harrods now) 💃 @robertrodriguezstudio 🕶️ @gucci

What an incredible picture and so brave. Hope she is safe. ✌️♀️
First few hours in Tokyo (here to investigate JBeauty in its natural habitat for @harrodsbeauty) and I can tell you already, it's unlike anything I've experienced before. Bonkers, cute, friendly, smart, so so clean and lots and lots of makeup. Staring my trip at @shiseido flagship with @londonbeautypr1 💞😚💗
WARNING: No Filter!!!! Lots of people commenting on my plaster today... I could try my best to pretend I'm being all Stella about it and making a statement but actually, today has just been one of those days when looking polished hasn't been possible. No nail varnish, terrible cuticles and no time and zero inclination to do anything about it. Today I give zero manicure fucks. Hope Grandma doesn't read that 😬 she never even goes out the house without lipstick.
Just before April issue of @harrods Mag arrives I wanted to share the March issue with you properly (have filmed my first IGTV talking you through it which you can watch now). This is a Masterclass shoot I did with @naturabisse and photographer @benjaminmadgwick with words by @ellacrosbie1 Aren't the pictures beautiful?? Shooting again with model @jenakincatwalker and Ben on Monday and Tuesday which will be dreamy.
Off piste essentials... Discovering for the first time the totally brilliant @sisleyparisuk Superstick which is a matte, tinted SPF50 balm that eliminates the need for bronzer and tinted moisturiser. Boy brow from @glossier is great on the slopes. It gives daylong shape, tint and fullness that almost convinces me I can go without mascara (almost!). I am mid way through my @bioeffect_uk 30 day treatment ( @tiffdarke you need to try this one next) and honestly I love love love it. My skin is just so juicy and cushiony every morning. I have used the @bioeffect_uk EGF serum since I went to Iceland to visit their laboratories before Christmas and the brand has me hooked. And last but not least, a neat little stick of @cledepeau SPF30 Pretection lipbalm, which melts beautifully into lips. I'm not a lip balm person but really loving using this.
