48 Hours with Kylie Jenner for Nip+Fab…

So it’s Tuesday and our weekend with Kylie Jenner is officially over! What a crazy weekend it has been from our first night at the London Eye, then to a photo shoot, a live interview & our Tea party with Instyle Magazine, co-hosted with the fabulous Charlotte Moore Editor of Instyle.

It was such pleasure to have Kylie over form LA, she is super cool, chic, flawless and professional & a really amazing ambitious young lady! Nip+Fab could not have found a more ideal ambassador! We have lots of behind the scene gossip to share with you all over the next few weeks so stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled on all our social platforms.

I had my make-up artist Gemma Wheatcroft with me the whole weekend, making sure my hair & make-up was always perfect! I used Rodial make-up throughout, my favourite products included; Rodial Contouring Powder to keep my face sculpted & cheeks defined! I wanted my make-up to make an impact on Saturday so I used the Mascara XXL, Smokey eye pen & Eye Sculpt to create the perfect smokey cat eye! As always I finished my look with a Glamstick I used ‘Just Daisy’ our latest Glamstick that is great brown/red shade!

My team worked so hard and I’m extremely happy with all the events we did this weekend! Kylie Thank you again for flying out and being part of my brand! Welcome to Nip+Fab family. I’m sure we will being seeing you again soon.

Rodial Breakfast with Daisy Lowe

This morning my dear friend Gianluca and I hosted a breakfast interview at Chiltern Firehouse with Rodial’s gorgeous face of make up Daisy Lowe! Daisy as always looked beautiful and oozed rock chick glamour! We all learnt some great secrets about Daisy, she loves Audrey Hepburn, she takes 7 minutes to get ready & she loves Glamstick’s… well let’s be honest who doesn’t?


‘Just Daisy’ new Glamstick launch

We are so excited to launch our new Glamstick ‘Just Daisy’ in celebration of our make up brand ambassador, Daisy Lowe. It’s a versatile colour that can be worn day and night like a little black dress.

The perfect shade of berry with a touch of brown, this is my staple colour to get me through fashion week.

1. Make sure you base your skin properly or you can get patches and skin can appear uneven. Use Rodial Instaglam Airbrush Primer to give a dewy start to the skin and hold your make-up in place.

2. Use the Contour Powder to define the face. Apply the contouring powder underneath the cheekbones, across the top of the forehead, under the jaw line & tip of your nose.

3. Highlighting – add lightness to the under eye area, also known as the triangle of light. Use the Instaglam Retouch & Instaglam Highlighter for the best results.

4. Instaglam Magic Pen Eye Glow is one of my favourite products; apply in the corner of the eyes, to make them pop!

5. Finish the sculpt with some Translucent powder to set the make-up and cover any areas where the skin may appear uneven.

My top 3 Rodial Make-up products this week…

This week I’m non-stop travelling, I have just got back from Germany to launch our make-up and today I’m off to New York. I need to look my best this week, so this week I’m after the products I achieve the best look whilst on-the-go.

1. Contouring powder
Whether you want killer cheekbones, slimmer nose or more defined jaw line, this buildable contouring powder allows controlled definition from a natural enhancement. This powder is a light weight and is super easy to apply. My top tip is to suck in your cheeks and apply the contouring power to the indents of the face.
2. Instaglam Highlighter
Perfect to use over make-up to highlight cheekbones, centre of the forehead, the cupid’s bow, corners of the eyes and bridge of the nose to offset the shading of the contouring powder. This product can bring light to your face and helps give the illusion of defined cheek bones.
3. Eye Sculpt
A versatile formula that can be built creating looks from day to night. It has a great soft mousse-like texture, which makes it easy to apply. My top tip for this product, is to use this to define your eyebrows using the eye sculpt brush it gives the perfect model brow look!

Our Sculpting bar is opening this Saturday exclusively at Harvey Nicholas, so head down and select a free service from our sculpting menu.

Rodial Make-up launch..

Yesterday was our much anticipated Rodial Make-up launch and the reveal of our first celebrity face Daisy Lowe.

Sculpting make-up with colour is a natural evolution for Rodial as it perfectly complements the existing skincare range. Rodial make-up is a capsule range of pieces designed to sculpt and define the face for a natural, flawless & radiant look.

I first met Daisy when she attended our Rodial awards where she won Woman of the Year. I was impressed by her effortless natural beauty, style and radiance. What Daisy can bring to the Rodial brand is a modern, cool and quintessentially British edge.

The complete range is now available to buy online. Our Sculpting Bar will open exclusively to Harvey Nicholas on the 8th November so pop down and get your face sculpted!

A Summary of My Week

This week’s been pretty busy as per usual, from meetings overseas to attending the London Film Festival. Here’s a sneak peek of what was in my diary this week. Glad the weekend is here for some relaxation!

BFI Table Image

I was in San Francisco for 24 hours having a number of meetings regarding some exciting new top secret projects for Rodial. Watch this space…

I attended the British Film Festival launch (read more about it here) – I ended up wearing a navy Galvan dress with Tom Ford strappy shoes! Celebs attended from the worlds of film, fashion and art, including Mick Jagger, Mark Quinn and Natalie Dormer. I mingled with Daisy Lowe, Charlotte Dellal, Emilia Wickstead and Tiphaine De Lussy. Altogether a brilliant way to spend the evening.

Barry Bootcamp

Barry’s Boot camp time! I love an early morning work-out, gets it done and out of the way and gives me bags of energy for the day. I love wearing my Hey Jo leggings as they keep me super cool and looking great. Yes it’s hard core – it’s not called a ‘bootcamp’ for nothing – and yes it really hurts… well relentless cardio drills between the treadmill and floor based weight circuits would! But still there is something ever so addictive about it. A-list celebs like Jessica Alba, Josh Hartnett and Kim Kardashian are big fans!

Office hours draw to a close and I’m ready for a weekend of relaxation. I’m off to my house in the Cotswolds….

Dragon's Blood Tonic | Rodial

Beauty Product Love of the week
The Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic is one of my faves. It’s great for an instant refresh and helps keep my skin hydrated whilst travelling and easily fits into my handbag.


Launch of the London Film Festival

Last night I attended the BFI and IWC sponsored launch of the London Film Festival. It was a star studded bash, with celebs from the worlds of film, fashion and art! Mick Jagger, Mark Quinn, Natalie Dormer mingled with Daisy Lowe, Charlotte Dellal, Emilia Wickstead and Tiphaine De Lussy.

I wore a Galvan navy gown with sheer sleeves, my red Lego Chanel clutch and my Tom Ford strappy heels. I wore my hair in my usual trademark long locks with loose curls and my make-up was fully sculpted, with contour cheek bones as a feature teamed with a nude brown lip to complete the look!

The event was brilliant for start to finish, the dinner was divine and the attention to detail was incredible.

Until next year! Follow me on Instagram for exclusive news on all my events @mrsrodial
