IN THE BAG - TOP SHOP'S BRIGHTON ROCK LIPSTICK



This has been my favourite lipstick for months.  I've always been a bit of a pink lipstick girl...I get it from my Mum!  Brighton Rock is a bright, vivid pink with a creamy matte texture, which has excellent staying power.  To prepare the lips, I do tend to use a touch of lip balm, which I then blot before applying the lipstick.  Matte lipsticks have a reputation for drying out the lips, however, this formulation bucks the trend.

USE YOUR HEAD - PHYTO INTELLIGENT SHAMPOO


If you feel like you want to give your hair a good cleanse, perhaps after a day in the city or after a swim, I've found this to be an excellent shampoo.  It's gentle enough to use daily though...just a little bit goes a long way and your hair feels good as new!

PORTFOLIO HIGHLIGHTS - NATALIE IMBRUGLIA

Natalie Imbruglia
Phr - Polly Borland
National Portrait Gallery - Australians Exhibition

This shot, for the National Portrait Gallery Exhibition, was taken in Natalie's house in London.  I went for a very natural look, which suited the relaxed set up of the day.  She is a dream to make up, as she takes great care of her skin and is incredibly photogenic.

MY FAVOURITES' - NAIL POLISH - MAVALA "RIGA"



If you like a paler, yet colourful nail colour I highly recommend Riga. It's a subtle pink that makes a statement!  You do need a few coats, however, if you use the Mavala Colorfix Top Coat to finish the job, it gives the colour great durability.

THE MEN'S ROOM - KIEHL'S BLUE ASTRINGENT


Kiehls's Blue Astringent Lotion is a must have for the male bathroom cabinet.  It's great post-shave, especially if there have been a few nicks.  It helps to take the redness down of angry blemishes too.  Use a cotton bud or a tissue soaked in the lotion to the affected area.
