I'm sure all of us at some point have said how we wished our make-up would stay perfect all day & that wouldn't it be great if there were a hairspray for our face to keep it all in place perfectly! Well now there is Model Co 'Beauty Fix Airbrush Face', a hairspray for your make-up! It claims that after just one spray your make-up will stay in place for the whole day or night without needing a re-touch in front of the nearest mirror!
They say that the spray itself is a lightweight, transparent mist that gently sets onto the face to seal your makeup, making it smudge-proof, tear-proof and water resistant! Also it offers a strong hold to your make-up without changing the appearance or feel of your foundation & unlike similar products on the market that give a matte finish, BEAUTY FIX leaves your skin with a luminous effect. It provides a feather light seal over the skin to seal the makeup, it also dries quickly but still keeps the skin hydrated. Use after makeup application, shake can, close eyes and spray from 30cm. £23.00

Over the last week I have discovered the perfect remedy to the cold biting weather, Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare is described as one of the country's best kept beauty secrets. Formed in 1995 by former beauty writer & broadcaster Liz Earle & beauty marketing expert Kim Buckland, they decided that the beauty industry lacked a high quality skincare with active botanical ingredients that worked for all skin types, so from there their skincare range was born! The biggest independent beauty brand in the uk, the line has grown through the power of word of mouth rather than advertising supported by a network of women who have been using the products for years & tell others about how great the products are as well as the fantastic results.
First up is a real winter essential right now 'Hand Repair' (above), first of all you'll notice that this cream absorbs instantly with no greasy residue at all which for me is very important in a hand cream, no point in applying it then not being able to touch any thing for about 15mins while is absorbs into your skin! It relieves dry skin instantly leaving it feeling soft & fresh, the echinacea soothes the skin with toning effect from hops as well as antioxidants plus vitamin E. What's more the treatment also helps to care for your nails & soften cuticles, plus with essential oils such as bergamont & lavender it leaves a gorgeous light fragrance!
Another fantastic winter warmer is their Iconic CLEANSE & POLISH Hot Cloth Cleanser, supermodels to make-up artists alike swear by this products which will produce soft & radiant skin whatever your skin type!
It has two basic steps, firstly you apply the cleanser over your face gently massaging over into face & neck to stimulate circulation, then with the cloth absorb it in hand hot water, wring out & gently polish off the cream, finally rinse with cold water to tighten pores. The cleanser is cream based containing almond milk to smooth, plus skin brightening eucalyptus & also rosemary to increase circulation, all giving the skin back it's radiance! The main thing I noticed here is how quickly the cleanser removes all traces of make-up, you feel that your skin has been deeply cleansed as well as soothed plus my skin definitely appears a lot brighter & clearer as a result, a definite essential for my beauty bag now!
After the cleanse & polish you should tone the skin with the 'Instant Boost Skin Tonic', it also sooths & brightens the skin, it is gentle & alcohol free so adds a fine layer of moisture as it contains hydrating organic Aloe Vera, vitamin E, plus with essential oils such as rose scented geranium it smells wonderful!
To finish off your beauty routine moisturise with 'Superskin Moisturiser', again it is ideal for winter as it works wonders with dry skin, it's naturally active ingredient smooth & plump the skin. It is fragrance free so excellent for sensitive skins, also contains cranberry, rose hip seed oils as well as being rich in omega 3 so it also helps prevent moisture loss & improves elasticity while the antioxidants help prevent environmental damage, making it perfect for the cold winter days.
'Superbalm' is a genius all round beauty rescue remedy, a must have for winter! It restores dry skin anywhere, from lips to hands & elbows relieving & softening dry chapped & flaky skin. Also another use to this multi purpose balm is that you can also use it to strengthen nails & cuticles, it even calms dry frizzy hair!!! Made from 100% pure plant oils & waxes it includes rose hip, echinacea, moisturising avocado & shea butter. It is a light wax like balm that just glides on, again non greasy, it's definitely winner with my frizzy hair this winter that's for sure!

"Americans have made natural makeup the modus operandi and celebrities seek out professional stylists to keep it safe and to avoid seeing themselves in the worst dressed section of the tabloids, but the lack of risk taking has made makeup seem almost mundane. Celebrity makeup artists have had to work harder to find colors, textures and applications that seem soft and natural and still stand out, separate their client from the pretty pack, and stand up to the scrutiny of the camera, the carpet and the media critique." –James Vincent, Director of Artistry The Makeup Show
