Get the Look – Retro Modern

Perhaps I’m being inspired by my new sixties bob, or the AW14 shows of Paris, Milan and London have sub-consciously infiltrated my brain, but either way, I’m feeling very retro.

Something for the weekend – Eyeko

The general laws of make-up decree that one should always decide between lips and eyes as the focus.  Although this is a rule I often like to break, there is no denying that a bare face and red lip, or dark eye and nude lip combo is more striking.    Eyeko, established in 1999 (vintage for the […]
