We love ..... Jerry Hall and Georgia-May Jagger

With Mother’s Day fast approaching we take a look at a Mother and Daughter icon pairing and what better two than Jerry Hall and Georgia-May Jagger. Appearing on the front cover of Vogue back in 1975, a 19 year old Jerry is still recognisable despite not having her long blonde hair on show. The strong lip colour and heavily made up eyes look great for this cover shot.   Not to be outdone by a mother, Georgia-May looks amazing. Enviable cheekbones, bright red lips in contrast to the bright pink lids enhances her beautiful green eyes.     There really isn’t a more stylish duo in town.  So stylish that their outfits and hair compliment each other perfectly. With Jerry’s...

Feed Those Lips!

A great base for nourishment is moisturiser. Moisturiser can give a glow, a sheen or a matt finish to the surface of your skin. Remember that all of your make-up efforts are going to sit on top of a moisturiser, so getting the perfect finish to your skin texture is key. Bear this in mind, when choosing products and make sure you're considering textures before you buy.  A nourishing or conditioning moisturiser will give a deeper penetration of moisture suitable for dry skin. Or if you have oily skin, like me, use a fluid. The same applies to lips.Ultra Matt lips were applied at the AW15 Sophie Webster viewing. This look has to have your lips in top condition - so...
