I adore Trinny Woodall’s Trinny London makeup range – the concept is so genius, the products are so easy, so practical and on the go. I literally cannot be without her highlighter, blush and eyeshadows – all cream textures and spot on shades.

Recently, Trinny invited me to be a part of her hilarious Trinny Taxi Show, to which I immediately said yes to. It’s the second time I have the opportunity to film with her (you can check our other video here), and it’s always beyond fun and also very inspirational. She’s so creative she came up with this brilliant Black Cab with a makeup station inside (!!), so we went for a ride and talked makeup, new products and did a few funny things on the way – do watch the video below for the full adventure!

Trinny London products are available online and at selected Selfridges and Fenwick stores around the UK.

My dream is to have one full hour to do my makeup whenever I need to well, put makeup on – it’s so nice to take the time to go through each step, to experiment with different products and techniques, for me it’s a form of meditation. But obviously real life does not allow such a luxury, and most days I’ll be in a rush, running late, having what I call “negative time” to dedicate to makeup application… Enter the 5 minute makeup magic.

I’ve become quite good in this art of making the most with very little time, understanding what’s really essential (it changes and I definitely have phases, but concealing dark circles and around the nose, doing a bit of blush and enhancing my brows are must) and which products I can apply almost without looking in the mirror.

Here is my current 5 minute makeup routine, I hope it helps you in time poor moments!

Sarah Jossel is one of the most influential people in the beauty industry, Beauty Director at the Sunday Times Style, and also one of my favourites – I love seeing her at events, exchanging tricks and talking about products. We’ve had the idea of filming this makeup on-the-go video a looong time ago, and I’m so happy it finally happened!

It was a very real life – and yes, quite bumpy – ride around London in a double decker bus, where Sarah shared loads of tips for on-the-go makeup and some quite exciting new launches. Check it out (and laugh a bit with us!).

A very special guest came over to my make-up room to film this month’s English video: Ree, from Really Ree, aka the beauty blog equivalent to Wikipedia.

I completely adore Ree, she’s one of my favourite people in the industry, and it’s always a treat when we see each other around London at launches and events – so I was more than thrilled when she accepted my invitation to be in this video, sharing her encyclopedic knowledge of beauty products and some amazing tricks you’ll want to incorporate immediately in your routine (I already have!).

For this first Monday in July, I decided to recreate the summer makeup that was my total go-to last January in Brazil – bronzed skin using several products to get a dimensional and more real effect, easy warm smoky eyes and pale glossy lips.

I always go back home for Christmas and New Year, it is my favorite time to be in Brazil – it’s summer there, we go to the beach, there are great parties, the atmosphere is amazing. So to celebrate the season in Europe (how great has the weather been in London, by the way??), here is my idea for a summer look!

Hi June! First Monday of the month means… It’s English tutorial day! And on to one of my favourite topics: the base. I’m obsessed with creating a fresh, flawless and glowy complexion regardless of the makeup I’ll put on afterwards on eyes and lips. To be honest, sometimes I even have the intention of doing a heavier look, and change my mind for something softer after the skin is done… When skin looks good, I feel like that’s all I need ;)

For today’s video I’ve used some of the products I’m enjoying the most lately, and some tricks to achieve a perfected, but not heavy or mask-life, effect. Hope you like it!

So my English videos are back! After some minor schedule struggles (blame the non stop travelling…), I’m very excited to revisit my plan to share makeup tutorials in English on my YouTube channel every month.

For May, I’ve filmed one of my all time favourite makeup tricks, one that I use every single day: the invisible liner. It discreetly enhances and lifts the eyes and is SO easy to do…

I hope you enjoy it (and try it at home!). The English videos will be going live every first Monday of the month, so stay tuned!

Perhaps because I come from a tropical summer-all-year-round country, I’ve always had a thing for cold weather, snow and all of that. Spending a weekend in the mountains drinking hot chocolate in front of a fireplace is my idea of heaven, so all I can think about when winter arrives is going skiing.

Earlier this year I went to Gstaad for the first time, to stay with some friends at their chalet. Having had the hotel Le Grand Bellevue in my radar for a while, I took the opportunity to get in touch and arrange a visit, and they kindly invited us for too wonderful experiences: spending some time at their spa and going for dinner at their fancy Michelin star restaurant.

“Hotel tourism” is one of my favourite things to do and I loved getting to know this gem that is Le Grand Bellevue. At the same time traditional and cool, it’s the perfect balance between posh and relaxed: excellent service, luxurious details, amazing décor, but you still feel at home.

We spent hours at Le Grand Spa — what can be nicer after a whole day at the slopes? We had a massage, tried all the many different saunas, soaked in the jacuzzi and relaxed at the terrace with a cup of tea. Later that day we came back for dinner. First we had an aperitif at the bar, sitting at the longest George Smith Chesterfield sofa ever comissioned (!), then went to Leonard, the Michelin starred restaurant, for a delicious meal in a great atmosphere.

There’s also a sushi restaurant, the Bouquet speakeasy and the cutest Le Petit Chalet, a cabin outside in the garden where you can have fondue. While there, I also had the chance to visit some of the suites, spacious, sun bathed and beautifully decorated, like the rest of the Le Grand Bellevue. Needless to say, I’m already planning to go back and stay for a few nights!
