Beauty


I’ve been trying to ignore all of the fuss around “millennial pink” (the dusty, opposite-of-Barbie pink that’s quickly established itself in the world of fashion and beauty and interiors as the shade du jour) but I have to admit that it is very easy on the eye. This is the colour that I would have painted …

I’ve spent so long dithering about the things I want to change in my videos that I completely forgot to post up one that I’d already made! Thank you, by the way, for all of your wonderful comments on the video-making post – I’m reading through them now and they’re so useful. So far I’ve learnt that …

I haven’t talked about a bronzer for at least ten minutes, so I thought that another recommendation was well overdue. For those of you who are missing my in-depth foundation reviews: fear not. I have about half a dozen of the things stacked up and ready to go, I just need to do that zooming-in …

Be still my beating beauty heart: Omorovicza’s amazing Queen of Hungary Mist has just launched in the most gorgeous limited edition packaging! Inspired by the architecture at the Rácz spa in Budapest, the pretty pink box and glass bottle are embellished with tiny silver stars. If you’ve been reading A Model Recommends for any length of time then you’ll …

Imagine if you could fix your expression to your face and make it last all day. Smile, grimace, frown; choose your mood and then lock it into place. It would be so handy for weddings if you could smile once and then freeze it. Or, for a serious occasion – something like an important meeting …

Some of my summer beauty essentials for you here, all neatly packaged into one (relatively) concise video. Note that I use the word “essential” very loosely; perhaps the only real summer beauty essential is sunscreen, followed by a good, robust cleanser to get it off with. But all of the things in the following video …

Mr AMR has taken umbrage at the way he was depicted in yesterday’s post about weather apps. He’s grumbling away from his corner of the sofa and demanding I re-word it. Because apparently, he’s always said, and I quote, “the BBC app was good when it was served by the Met Office, but the new …
