Beauty Without Boundaries

A very exciting phrase I never thought I would say coming up… tomorrow I will be talking at Vogue House. I will be doing two talks as part of the Beauty Without Boundaries pop up: a partnership with Vogue, Feel Unique and Pinterest to celebrate the Vogue Beauty Awards. Pinterest has asked me to talk about my rosacea and how I use ‘unusual’ beauty to give me confidence – a topic I could talk about until the cows come home. They may need to drag me off-stage to shut me up…!

How To Cover Thread Veins: Tips and Advice

In the last 13 years my rosacea has changed so much: I’ve gone from Type 2 (pustules and bumps) to Type 1 (flushing with persistent redness); my skin is now more oily, rather than dry and scaly; I’ve changed my diet and lifestyle, my skincare routine has been honed and perfected, and I’ve learned how to manage my stress a little better. I finally feel like I am more in control of my rosacea, but years of damage have left me with a lot of broken capillaries (spider veins or telangiectasia if we’re being scientific) which give my skin a pink tone even when I’m not having a flare up. Keep reading for my tips on how to cover thread veins below.

It’s time to continue my Flawless Base series, and in today’s post we’re really getting down to the nitty-gritty: foundations and application methods (plus some cleaning tips). This is the post I’ve most looked forward to in this series, as foundation is the make up item that is truly transformative for me due to my rosacea.

Tips For A Flawless Base: Colour Correcting

I talk about rosacea a lot on the blog and I cover skincare, diet, lifestyle, stress and everything else that can affect my skin. I try to give as much advice as I can but for a lot of people, these long term solutions are helpful but they also want short-term help. I get at least one question about covering rosacea with make up every day, as so many people just want to be able to go about their day with a little bit more confidence. So I’ve put together my tips for a flawless base. I’d recommend starting with the other posts in the series – chatting about primers and foundation – but today we’re talking about colour correcting.

How to achieve a flawless base: all my tips for colour correcting are on the blog.
