2017: An Ode to Optimism

After a rocky 2016, it seems we are all committed to making 2017 a year of hope, togetherness and possibility. If 2016 was the apocalypse, then 2017 is the year we dust ourselves off, walk through the rubble and saunter off into the sunset.

Still Feeling Blue – Beauty Backstage – Marc by Marc Jacobs

Blue eyes show no sign of abating, or indeed waning, in the affections of Creative Directors across the globe.  Blue eyes seem to be the new dark lip, in their perpetual presence on the runways; slowly becoming  staple.  Initiated by Stella McCartney with her blue mascara of SS13, the look has continually been developed, with […]
