I’ve been meaning to write about these brushes for ages. I’ve had the pleasure of working with these Eco Tools make-up brushes from the Complexion Collection range on lots of occasions. They’re a permanent part of my make-up brush line up. Here’s some of the amazing benefits you’ll get from these brushes.

  1. Firstly they are synthetic so completely bacteria free.  I’ve heard of serious staphylococcus infections through real hair make-up brushes infecting broken skin after sharing dirty brushes with friends.
  2. These brushes are easy to wash and very quick to dry.
  3. No malting hair so preventing any getting stuck to the face.
  4. These brushes offer a sturdy and directional application whether you’re using cream or powder, great for contouring, blusher and eye shadow and good for body painting.

Bradley_151126_8020Through my work i’ve used many different types and makes of Lashes.  From high glam, advertizing, portraits and drag artists. Seems they never go out of fashion. Just think back in relation to Hollywood films with leading ladies like Clara Bow in the 20’s and Gene Harlow in the 30’s ( one of the first blonds in movies) they wore false lashes to accentuate their eyes on film to lure and engage the viewer.  Ardell invited me to celebrate 45 years at the Langham Hotel in central London with a glamorous event to show off the new Press On Lashes and natural styles. Certainly Oscar Winners.

The Little Black Dress & Avon’s Christmas make-up favourites 2015.

If you’re looking for glamourous affordable party dresses & make-up ideas for Christmas, then read on.  Party dresses from under £50 & make-up items from Avon to suit your budget easily for 2015.

The company Little Back Dress had bit of a bash recently at the Cafe Royal in one of the most beautiful rooms i have seen for a long time. It’s worth a visit with your friends if you get a chance to visit town before Christmas.   It was full of press, bloggers, pop stars and soap stars.  Typical of me to sit in the reserved spot and was quite quickly removed by a PR with a smile,  ( I know my place :)).
