New Video: Get Ready with Me … to see Helen Mirren!

So the other day my friend Danielle and I travelled down to see the magnificent Helen Mirren in the play The Audience. It was the perfect day out. We stopped by Selfridges, Jo Malone, and Space NK, had frozen yoghurt, Sushi for dinner, then saw a well written, witty play with an excellent cast and got our programmes signed by the lady herself.

Before we left I filmed my first “Get ready with me” video. In this video I’m doing my eye makeup as in the Old Hollywood Glamour look of the day.


Plus, I am wearing one of the dresses I made myself using the Simplicity 3833 pattern. This dress was inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s second wedding dress. I used fairly heavy woolen fabric. Shame I don’t have the hat to go with it! I also didn’t manage to copy her amazing collar, even though I tried…

  1. That’s a great video! Thanks for making it and it’s a lovely tune that too. Having seen your base blending, it’s really convinced me on giving La Roche Posay a try. Heard lots about it but I haven’t seen it used before.
