Back in January Nuit magazine sent me off to review and try out the ‘Dermal Filler’ treatment at ‘Clinibe’s’ clinic in Knightsbridge. Thank you DR Kubicka for the amazing treatment and I’m so happy with the outcome!! 🙂
(Here is the review i wrote for ‘Nuit magazine’)
In recent years dermal fillers have become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available, mainly due to its speed and ease. Injectable facial fillers are used to smoothen out fine lines or to replace volume. With the latest generation of dermal fillers using a naturally occurring Polysaccharide (Sugar) called Hyaluronic Acid which add volume and hydration, there are even more reasons to explore the possibilities. We met up with London-based Dr. Barbara Kubicka, founder, director and doctor at CLINICBE, a new clinic situated in the heart of Knightsbridge to find out more about dermal fillers and how it’s possible to achieve a youthful look without going under the knife.
Where can fillers be used on the body and what is it for?
Dermal fillers can be used anywhere on the body where increased volume is needed. As we get older our skin loses high levels of Hyaluronic Acid which is the main substance for our skins fullness, so injectable fillers are used to target those areas and re-add the volume. In addition, it can also be used to smoothen out fine lines and to help achieve a younger looking complexion.
How long does the treatment take and will it hurt?
The treatment takes about 30 minutes. Numbing cream is applied to make the treatment less painful but it depends on the patient. Most modern fillers now contain a local anaesthetic making the injections comfortable even in delicate areas such as your lips, so there’s usually no need for concern.
How often should you have it done and how long does it last?
Importantly, being a natural bio-degradable substance the dermal filler is not permanent, so treatment will need to be topped up to maintain the desired look. Remember the more regular you have the treatment the longer it lasts. Here is a rough guideline to how long it can last if looked after well: facial volume between 9 to 12 months, lines, wrinkles and folds 6-9 months and lips 4-6 months.
What about aftercare?
Once you have had your treatment, swelling can occur as well as redness and bruising but painkillers can be taken if you’re feeling uncomfortable. To prevent lumpiness or asymmetry you must massage the area once a day for a week. This will smoothen out the product, giving it a natural look and less noticeable to the eye. Avoid touching the area for 6 hours and makeup can be applied an hour later. No vigorous exercise for at least 12 hours and stay away from the sunbeds, heavy exfoliation treatments such as peels, facials and microdermabrasions for the next 5-7 days. You must also stay away from extreme heat until the swelling had gone down.
Can it be reversed if the client isn’t happy with the results?
Dermal fillers can be reversed if the client isn’t happy with the outcome or no longer requires its effects. It can be removed with hyaluronidase which naturally melts down the hyaluronic acid fillers and you will see instant results.
What types of Dermal fillers are available and which is most popular?
There are a number of Dermal fillers available in the market, with popular names being: Juverderm, Restylane, Teosyal and Emervel. Juverderm has to be the most popular one used.

Okay so I’ve been using this as my primer for the last week. And no I’m not kidding I really have. Not only is it cheap to buy and lasts for ages but you will stay matte all day especially if you have extremely oily skin like me. I find a lot of primers nowadays say they will keep you matte and this is never the case. But using ‘Milk of magnesia’ as your primer is the way forward and a total god send. I know this is weird but trust me if you use a few layers of this under your foundation you WILL stay shine free for at least 6 hours or maybe even more depending on how oily you are. So give it a go and you soon you will be saying goodbye to constantly powdering your face!
Today i found out that an image that me and Photographer Amber Eggleden worked on has finally come out in Latina Magazine in the states!What a great surprise and over the moon to see this image of the gorgeous model Alessandra Garcia at Milk model Management in London.
Today i had the pleasure of working at the Daily Mail HQ Photography Studios! It was so much fun! I love working with new talents and it was such an honour to have worked at the Daily Mail Studios! Dreams do come true 🙂
Here below is a sneak peak cant wait to show you all the final photos.

Today i created this look using gems all over my face! To do this i used eyelash glue with a bag of gems that i brought at my local craft shop and stuck them all over my face making sure it had some sort of pattern. I must say it does take some time but within no time you can create a look that is photoshoot ready.
On Friday last week i had the pleasure of working with the gorgeous Nadia from Select model management!
The look you can see in the photo below was a combination of dewy skin and a hint of gold leaf highlight! I was really pleased with the final outcome and i cant wait to see the final photos!

A few months back i got to work with plus size model Alessandra Garcia who is curently signed to Milk Model Management London. The shoot we did was themed on sexy lingerie for those who are body confident.
I have to say it was an absolute pleasure to work with her, she knew exactly how to work her curvaceous body and every shot we had of her she looked absolutely stunning. I really wish her the best of luck in the future as i think she will make a name for herself either in the modelling industry or on something completely different.

Yes it is very important to moisturise when you have oily skin because the reason you produce oil is because your skin has no moisture so when you do moisturise it tricks your oily glands into thinking your skin its already oily so it prevent you from excessive oiliness. If you are acne prone you need to make sure you use a moisturiser that is oil free. Because the last thing you want is to put more oil on top of more oil and it will only break you out even more. It is also nice to moisturise if you wear makeup a lot as it’ll make sure your makeup sits properly without being flakey. If you are somebody with dry skin then moisturiser is a must as it will act as a primer for your makeup and will reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
I hope this makes sense and answers your questions.

I have been asked by numerous people about What is strobing? So i am here to answer that question finally!
Strobing is another form of advanced highlighting in which you apply a highlighter to the high points on your face. Such as;Brow bone, above the brow, nose bridge, cupids bow, chin and cheek bones. The key is to do it effortless giving the illusion you are fresh faced and natural as if you have a sun kissed glow. To be honest it is no different to what women have been doing already. Call it the new contouring.
If you are looking for products to do this i would advise using ‘Benefits High Beam’ or the hightlighter side from ‘Charlotte Tilbury’s Bronze & Glow.’
(Remember use a highlighter that complements your skin tone!)
I would advise if you are extememly oily to make sure you use a mattifying primer as this technique could make you look even more oilier than you are already.
I know i have wrote a lot on how much i love Charlotte Tilbury’s products, but i have to say i love her ‘Airbrush Flawless finishing powder’. I have used many powders in the past and i find they all make mine and my clients skin look very cakey. I also find this powder is very natural on the skin giving you a flawless complexion. It doesn’t clog up your pores as well like other powders do and really does let your skin breath. I think the fact it is made with rose wax and almond oil is a great factor because its treating your skin as well as keeping you matified. The majority of Charlotte’s products are made with skincare products and that is rare to find nowadays. I do get a lot of people saying its quite pricey but i honest think its worth the money as long as you use it sparingly.
In the last year i have been OBSESSED in buying Charlotte Tilbury products!! I have literally spent an arm and leg on hundreds of products and every single one i have purchased, i am 100% in love with. Charlotte’s products are like no other they look and feel amazing and the quality of the makeup is fantastic! I think the fact that she’s had control of brand from start to finish and being a makeup artist for years and years means she knows what a successful product should have and need. Makeup is about feeling and looking good and like she says she’s bottled it!!!
I cant tell you guys enough how much these products have changed the way i work as a makeup artist. I feel i have control on how the product goes on and i always end up with a flawless finish. I also get the most compliments when i use Charlottes products!!
Thumbs up to the amazingly talented Charlotte Tilbury i really look up to you and aspire to be like you one day. Keep up the amazing work and i cant wait to see what other products you bring out.
Ive suffered from acne since i was 15 and I’ve struggled for years to get rid of it! and nothing would help. I spent out fortunes on acne preventing products such as; creams, light therapies and skin peels. But they didnt help they only made it worse! But I recently had an eureka moment and i discovered how my acne is triggered and how i can prevent further breakouts. Don’t get me wrong i know it wont go completely because there many factors as to why people get acne and i know everyone is different but for me i know this is the reason why i do.
A few years back i had an allergy test because i kept being sick and having a stomach aches and i had a feeling it was triggered by dairy products. So i went and had an allergy test and it determined i was 100% intolerant. But it also showed i was allergic to numerous other things like; soya, pork, prawns, crab and white wine! (the white wine was the painful part) When i found out about this i thought long and hard and i realised those were the frequent things i ate and drank regularly.
I Then decided to test myself and cut down on them to see if i had any changes and i noticed a considerable amount. My skins appeared clearer and i noticed the cysts i had on my cheeks had gone down and i had no further breakouts under the skin! I cant lie i do get some small breakouts here and there but no where near as bad as i used to. Its just about monitoring what you put into your body and taking care of it. Im not saying you cant eat anything nice again but space it out don’t eat everything you like all at once.
I really hope this helps others out there who are suffering like i was. Its really easy to see an allergist, you get instant results and it makes you feel a lot more energised and more confident.

On Sunday i had the pleasure of shooting with Ruth Richardson Childs at a stunning location on the outskirts of the M25. It was a hot summers day and the pressure was on to get some amazing photos that could eventually be in an international magazine. Here below is a shot of the gorgeous model Carolina at Next model management and a view of the stunning location!! I still cant get over the location because even though we were in the UK you would think we were abroad!!
The makeup i created was fresh skin a dewy complexion with a bold graphic black eyeliner!
I really cant wait to show you all the final photos!
The other day i created this look on the beautiful model Karina! We were shooting for Jocks & Nerds magazine that is coming out in September and i was given the brief to create a smokey eye and a red lip that was translate in black and white photography. When you shoot in black and white makeup is really washed out so you have to go a lot darker and heavier so it shows up on camera.
I cant wait to show you all the final images!!
Yesterday i went to Charles Fox in Covent garden. When I’m in London i always make an effort to visit this store because i always find new goodies! And today i purchased a four compartment roll up clear makeup bag. (sorry so many words to describe it! haha) Not only does it keep your kit looking nice and tidy it also makes life a lot easier when finding certain products! You can also roll it up and use it as a makeup bag as it had a handle which i think it perfect if you’re on the go or on set! I must say this is one of the first makeup bags that i feel i will keep for a very long time as I’m always swapping and changing, I might even buy another one 😉

Hi everyone!! I’m currently taking on bookings for fashion editorials, look books and make overs.
If interested please contact me on email@example.com
I am crazy obsessed with this product not only is it convenient and quick to apply it feels so light on the skin. I would definitely recommend this product to the women who hasn’t got much time to apply makeup and is in a hurry.
Will definitely be purchasing more of these so i can use them on my clients!!
Recently i have gained a new obsession and that is dewy glowing skin. On a lot of editorials and weddings i have done i have been using the Nars Albatross Blush/Highlighter to create sun kissed skin, dewy looks and higher defined cheek bones. I feel highlighter is an absolute must for all ages. Not only does it make you feel confident it completes your look. When turning your head from side to side the highlighter catches the light giving you that uber glamorous effect every women needs.
A lot of women are afraid to use highlighter because they feel too much can give the effect of oily skin. But its how you use the product and remember less is more. When it comes to everyday use you need to use it in these key areas. 1.Brow bone 2.tops of cheeks & 3. cupids bow. If you’re going for a high fashion look you can use it on the bridge of your nose and occasionally on the centre of your lips. ( Best product to use when doing mens grooming)
Here below are a couple of photos from a recent shoot using this concept.
Remember makeup is about playing around and coming up with looks that suit you or your client. remember if you apply to much it isn’t the end of the world you can always change it easily.
Ive recently been testing out the ‘Garnier Micellar Cleansing water’ as an alternative to ‘Bioderma’. Not only does it remove all makeup it leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. I love the fact its very accessible not like the ‘Bioderma’ which is difficult to buy.I really recommend this cleanser for all skin types because it doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry and irritated like most cleanser nowadays!
An absolute must have for all women/men 😉
A thumbs up from me!!! 😀
I recently received a lot of emails from women that want makeup lessons not only because they want to be a makeup artist by career but to learn how to do makeup on themselves. So I have decided to offer one to one lessons for those who would like them.
For more information on one to one lessons please email me through my bookings page or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to hear from you soon.
Heat Proof Makeup and Skin Care Tips for the Summer Heat
A lot of women will wear less makeup during the hot summer season but will still want to wear some sort of makeup that will enhance there features or to genuinely to complete themselves so they feel confident to leave their homes with no foundation or makeup on.
For most women and men in general you should at least wear a good SPF that will protect your skin from the harsh sun/rays. You might also like to consider a good SPF lip balm to keep your lips hydrated and not chapped.
For women that want to wear a little coverage because of dark circles or blemishes you might want to use a waxy cream concealer but remember to powder over it to set it. After you have done this you might want to use a little cream blush make sure though it is waterproof. If you don’t want to wear blusher or concealer/foundation, You might want to use a creamy bronzing gel that will give you a sun kissed glow. A good CC cream could be an option for you but remember on oily skin it could make your skin look greasy, so you might want to invest in a good primer.
Another must have is waterproof eyeliner and mascara – reasons why is you will sweat makeup a lot easier in the summer so you want to use a product that will maintain throughout the day.
– YSL Touche Eclat
– Laura Mercier Secret Camoflauge
Foundations, CC creams :
– Shu uemura
– Bourjois CC cream
Lots of people have been asking how i achieve that luminous skin affect on all my models. So i have written a list of my top favourite Concealers and foundations. Most of the time the models have perfect skin so there isn’t much concealing and perfecting so i just use the YSL touché Eclat in the areas where the skin looks slightly darker so thats around the nose, mouth and under the eyes. If the model had a few small blemishes i would then go in with the secret camouflage to hide those unwanted imperfections.
With foundations i tend to use the Bourjois Cc Cream if i want to have a little more coverage but still look natural and fresh. Or if i have a model that has mature skin that needs alot more coverage or say the client has asked for a full coverage i would then use either the Illamasqua or Shu uemura. I haven’t really got a favourite with these two foundations as i feel both work so well but it really depends on the clients skin. I would say the Shu uemura has more of a full coverage affect and you don’t need to apply that much. Whereas the Illamasqua foundation to get full coverage you would need to build it up with a few layers.
Summer is just upon us and I’m sure most of you are wanting that summer bronzed glow.
I find a lot of clients that come to me fake tan but don’t fake tan there face reason why there is no point because most women wear makeup and it’ll all come over easily. But want a product that they can wear that will make them look complete but not obviously fake looking. Here is a product that i use that i am absolutely in love with that gives you that bronzed glow but doesn’t look obviously over the top and fake.
The product is ‘Chanel Bronze Universal’ This product to me is a gods send. Not only can you use it under makeup as a base you can also apply it on top of what you’re wearing. Or just wear it as a moisturiser/primer if you want to wear minimal makeup. The only problem i find is for someone on a budget this is quite pricey. But not to worry you can buy an alternative that is alot cheaper and thats the Bronze primer from ‘Bourjois.’
Ive recently found a new love….
Me being a makeup artist i find it so difficult to travel around with bags full of different eyeshadows ect so i decided enough was enough and that i needed to buy the Mac Eyeshadow palettes that are refillable. These palettes are a gods send don’t know what i would do without them! Not only is it easier for my kit it also looks pleasing to the eye and i love showing them off! A great purchase!!! <3 <3
