Next season is all about perfect skin, a necessity to offset heavily-kholed eyes or precise red lips.  Apart from the obvious cleanse, tone and moisturise routine, […]

Gloss as you know it is dead; gone are the days of sticky lips and stickier cheeks.  For a while gloss fell victim to the smooth and matte allure of lipstick, as women the world over hung up their juicy tubes, around the same time they discarded their monogrammed handbags- gloss just seemed to flashy, too shiny, too gauche.

Blue Mascara

The mere notion of blue mascara brings me back to my matron (yes I had a matron!) sporting a blue rinse perm, blue eyeliner and blue mascara- it wasn’t a good look then, and until I saw this image of Joan Smalls, I didn’t think it would be now. Yet, the image of Joan in […]
