As I get older my style is becoming more refined as I draw in influences tightly from some of my largest icons. I find I am always inspired but the charm and mystery of vintage has always held my heart. It is true that glamour is something which is ‘self-created’ but I believe it also exceeds just the exterior. It comes from within as well; how you act, how you speak, how you react, how you move and so on… Recently, I have been drawn to the beauty of Ava Gardener, her playful features, bountiful brunette locks and charming smile are captivating! I mainly seem to take inspiration from the beauty side of past styles as once this achieved, the entire look seems to miraculously come together. Forget about all this contouring and baking malarkey, this look is so simple in comparision. In fact, the look took me approximately 15 minutes to complete! And, it was achieved on a bumpy train en route to this photoshoot – impressive right?

For those of you who are blessed with a clear complexion, all you really need is a touch of concealer. Fortunately, my skin is very clear but growing up, it was not the case so I can honestly relate to those have troublesome skin. I would suggest finding a brand that works for you; even if the foundation is expensive, I believe it is something worth splashing out on as good skin dramatically improves confidence. I would search for a matte foundation is skin is problematic as it will draw attention from any skin textures and create a clear and flawless look. If your skin is better, though matte typically suits this look, I always feel that a slightly dewy foundation with powder only in the t-zone looks perfect! It keeps skin looking youthful and natural! It is important to keep eyeshadows to soft tones; avoid harsh colours and stick to neutrals, browns and pinks. These colours compliment a red lip without looking too much. It is all about finding the balance and understanding what products best suit you especially colour-wise. Find my next beauty article which will help you find the most complimentary red lip for your skin tone…
