Make-Up Demonstrations With Bryony Blake

6 Essential beauty tips, every woman should know from TV Make-up Artist Bryony Blake

Extracts from an interview with Katie Wright.

Tasked with getting the likes of Amanda Holden and Oti Mabuse ready for their TV close-ups, and doling out advice as a This Morning beauty expert, Bryony Blake really knows her stuff when it comes to cosmetics.


Alongside her regular showbiz duties, the make-up artist has recently teamed up with Tropic for the unveiling of the brand’s first make-up collection which, like its skincare, is vegan and cruelty-free.

The hero of the range is the Colour Palette, a customisable kit that lets you to pick up to seven different pans from 13 different products and a variety of shades, allowing millions of different combinations.


The magnetic pans can snap in and out so you can switch up the products whenever you want to – much like a make-up artist tailors their kit according to their client.

“I think this is one of the first times I’ve come across a palette where you’ve got the option of cream and powder products together,” says Blake, who tested the full range ahead of the launch.


“The colours they have are really good, and will suit anyone and any skin tone. That’s really clever to do that.”
