How do you colour/do your hair?
Up until 2012, I regularly got ‘flashes’/’flashes of colour’ put into the bottom half of my hair. I have had a selection of colours (from caramel to blonde) & have been doing this for over 5 years now & looks ‘ombre-d’. I tend to let my hair air dry with some Moroccan Oil & Bumble & Bumble bb.gel. I then style the front with my straighteners &/or curling wands depending on my mood. From 2013 onward, I have an align hair cut, you can read more about it HERE. Since May 2014 I have had my hair re-done by Nicky Lazou who’s work you can see HERE and more recently HERE.

You can see how I do my eyebrows HERE.

My skin type depends on the weather & is always changing therefore I have combination skin.

I think my all time favourite foundation is the MAC Face & Body however recently I have discovered the YSL Touche Éclat Foundation (review HERE) & it’s become a firm favourite! You can also read more about MAC’s Face & Body HERE.

What Camera do you use?
At first I used a Canon IXUS 220 and 130. Since April 2011, I’ve used a Canon 500D with 18-55mm & 50mm lenses. I occasionally use my iPhone and/or Instagram images. Since August 2014 I now also use a Canon 70D along with my 500D for filming and photography on my 18-50mm 0.28m/0.9ft lens and occasionally 55mm 0.45m/1.5ft lens.

Do you have a YouTube channel?
Yes I do :) You can find my channel HERE.

  • Nova

    Hi there I discovered your blog recently and fell in love completely I was wondering how you made you banner I’m dying to know because I want to start a blog and also I was wondering if when you take photos of make up on you actual face you could do one with flash and one without :)

    • Kaushal

      Hi Nova, thanks do much for your message. I made my banner just with a random font on a program called Paint.NET which is like a free photoshop. I can try & do with & without flash photography of my face (sometimes England isn’t the best for that) but I will definitely try my best x
