I am currently in the beautiful rural countryside of North Suffolk where I was bought up. Having driven up to East Anglia from London this week, combining a family visit with two jobs, I decided that it was the perfect place to write this month's Behind the Brand post as it features local company Essential Care.

I recently worked on a music video for a Hip Hop artist with whom I have worked with a number of occasions. Previous videos have involved pretty standard make-ups - glamour and male grooming, however this was a little different. Think 1920's prohibition, think tommy guns, pin curls, corsets and pin striped suits.... Yep you've guessed it a good 'ole gangster movie style shoot 'em up - with a twist of course!

Brush cleaning takes up a lot of my time. I currently have in excess of ummm... (whispers) 200 make-up brushes and although I don't use all of them at once (obviously) they do need cleaning between make-ups.
I love my brushes, however with all that cleaning I'm always looking for new and better ways to clean them - If nothing else it makes it a little more exciting for me!

I was recently approached by the natural living community and market Silent Springs, asking me if I would be interesting in becoming a guest beauty contributer to their blog The Organic Times. A few emails later, I was writing what I hope will be the first of many posts...

Facial wipes are such an easy way to remove make-up. A couple of goes over the face and even the heaviest make-up is usually gone, negating the need for many of the bottles and jars of cleansing products that take up space in and weigh a kit down. Quick and convenient, I tend to find that facial wipes are particularly popular with the male artists and presenters I work with - well who wants to hang around after a long day on set!?
