Ok so it's Day 2 of LFW and we have a bevy of beauty treats already. Today I was at House of Holland at the opulent Goldsmiths Hall, which was literally pimped out and dripping in chandeliers and Kinder Aggugini at Somerset House. I love Henry Holland as well as being very warm, friendly and sweet (every time I meet him I think your family should be very proud- they raised you right) the boy loves him some beauty. His regular beauty dream team of Adam Reed for Babyliss, Lucia Pica for MAC and Sophy Robson for Leighton Denny (check out Sophy's own nails she's rocking an illustration by Will Broome) whipped up a cool look girls will be attempting in the mirror tonight- I guarantee!

I loved the MAC matte statement red lip, which had laser sharp precision with a pronounced cupid's bow and Sophy worked her magic on the nails, custom blending a blue grey and pink base colour, which she layered a houndstooth print on top of which was inspired by a print in the collection.

Fresh from his fabulous Kate Moss inspired hair from yesterday's Felder Felder show,  the super talented and super sweet Adam Reed hit it out the park again with his look, which he described as 'Ride in the countryside hair' influenced by Barbara from 'The Good Life' with all her buttoned down sauciness. He created the look using his magic Babyliss wand and created a texture he calls 'the Kick', which was created by tonging the hair and using hairspray on the fingers to tease the hair into a tousled loveliness you only dream of. The hair was swept across the face and tied in a ponytail in the nape of the neck.

At Kinder, Sharon Dowsett who is one of my favourite people in Beauty created a stunning look with a blinged out a lip using Maybelline inspired by an Old granny handbag and some of Kinder's glittery shoes. AMaybelline tea rose fleshy lipstick was used as the base and MAC 3D glitter was placed on top with some Swaroski crystals layered in the look to add the appearance of chunks of glitter.

The super creative Malcolm Edwards for L'Oreal Professionnel turned out a beautiful look inspired by contradictions with a naive charm with a masculine twist in the front and feminine in the back with the hair sectioned into 3, using some L'Oreal Techni Art Reconstructor and Serum then snag free hair bands were used to created loops throughout the ponytail before they were tied together with some elastics, it looks extremely intricate and like origami on acid - loved it!

Stay tuned for Day 3 ............



And we 're off! LFW A/W 12 started today for me with a bang at Felder Felder, as well as being ridiculously sweet and down to earth the identical twins and designing team can knock out a couture rock chick look like no one else. 

When it came to the make up it was a delicious M.A.C ATTACK as MAC's Georgina Graham created mouthwateringly beautiful make up using all new MAC products winging their way to counter near you soon. There was 90s inspired hair and make up and blonde as in the colour also influenced the look and collection. Georgina's look was 90s but the Kevin Aucoin school of 90s make up, all heavy natural buffed sexy skin and contoured cheeks. Georgina said she was inspired  by the the dry arid desert and used a new MAC powder on the eyes, which looked like a shimmery liquid gold sheer veil. On the lips she dabbed on a dreamy milky nude pink from the new MAC A/W palette.

Adam Reed for Sebastian created hair every woman wants, it was inspired by Kate Moss in the mid 90s when she was with Johnny Depp (bless her she looked really happy and fresh faced and loved up then, didn't she), which was created by putting a loose bend/ wave in using a heated wand then working the heated curl with fingers and a touch of hair spray. 

I will be filming 17 shows in London and Milan with my Beauty and Fashion production company Couture Communications, so watch this space and come backstage with me!!!!
