Review: Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet&Dry cordless epilator

I’ve been a loyal waxer for a fair few years now (11 years exactly) and I certainly wouldn’t go back to shaving again, ever (the Italian blood in me means I’m cursed with dark, dense regrowth if I do).  But there comes a time every year (around June to August to be precise) where I…… Continue reading Review: Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet&Dry cordless epilator

How I now have time for all the things I never had time for…

I live what feels like a hamster wheel life: I’m rushing all the time, to get to places, to get things done and yet I have a consistent list in my head of things I should get done or I would like to do but they never happen.  How can this be, when I’m constantly living at 100mph?! …… Continue reading How I now have time for all the things I never had time for…

Review: Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer

I recently had a meeting with Helen Roche (Professional Development Manager and Pro Artist from Illamasqua) and she was showing/talking me through the full range of Illamasqua products (it was like the perfect working day for me!).

6 months of Lady Eversmith: the face behind the name, my highlights & what I’ve learnt so far

It’s only been 6 months?! It feels like so much longer! But that’s not a bad thing… I think I feel like that because blogging and filming videos for my Youtube channel feels so natural, it’s like what I should’ve been doing for so much longer than I actually have..

What is a toner and what is the point?

In my experience, toners are somewhat of a mystery product (to a lot of my clients and others I speak to).  It is widely accepted that they form part of a basic skincare regime and yet, few are able to pin point their actual purpose.  This results in one of two things: people buy any old…… Continue reading What is a toner and what is the point?

Product review: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Clinique was one of the first brands I established a full skincare regime with (having only used Clean and Clear beforehand; I was just in my teens) and it wasn’t long before I discovered their Moisture Surge moisturiser, which I absolutely fell in love with. Back then I was far oilier than I am now…… Continue reading Product review: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
