Go Blue This Summer with Tom Ford

  If you’re looking for the perfect festival, or Ibiza, look to take you from day to evening, blue eyeshadow is the one. Tom Ford‘s eye and cheek palette offered up the deepest of cobalts. A strong and striking deep sea blue, set against shimmering sheer golds and the palest pink blush. The super-sized white […]

All hail the robe

  It all started back in September when Jeremy Scott showed his first collection for Moschino. The Spongebob and McDonalds themed pieces were the talk of the town and went on to cover many an IPhone, but it was the towels that caught our attention; a strange sight to see on a catwalk for a […]

Get the Look: White Liner at Kenzo & J. JS Lee

The SS14 catwalk offered up two differing, but equally striking, ways to wear white eyeliner. Kenzo’s  bold wave of white across the eyelid, was in-keeping with the oceanic graphics of the collection. Also drawing inspiration from the aquatic, for her London Aquarium-inspired show, J. JS Lee opted for a softer take, with a sweep of white kohl […]

Campaign Trailing – Ashish x Topshop

Sunday Selection – Bourjois So Laque Glossy

Pastel nails scream summertime. Powder pink, mint green, baby blue, lilac and lemon, are consistently appealing. One of my favourite pastel polishes, is Bourjois So Laque Glossy in Adora bleu (£6 at Boots) :  a light, powder blue shade that works on a wide variety of skin tones.  Two coats are all you need for full coverage and chip-free […]

Get the Look – Ibiza Beauty at Topshop Unique SS14

Whether stranded on a desert island or packing for a holiday, one of my must-have products is a black kohl eyeliner. This modest, unassuming pencil, holds the key to so many beautiful, bold looks. The most notorious perhaps is the post-party, morning-after look demonstrated at the Topshop Unique SS14 show.    Inspired by the Ibiza party girl, Topshop‘s offering was a daring -but welcome- contrast from the fresh faced trend […]

Blush loves…Chanel Stylo Yeux – Inspired by Marc Jacobs SS14

There are few products that make me instantly gush but one sweep of Chanel‘s Stylo Yeux eyeliners for Spring/Summer, has transformed my summer.    Blue eyes are set to be huge this season and there are two distinctive camps, lids vs. the waterline.  At Marc by Marc Jacobs, lids were swept in punchy cobalt and given a sweep […]

Go Green with Spring’s new scents.

I don’t know if it’s because Spring immediately conjures images of foliage and days spent frolicking in the park, but for some reason everyone seems to be making their perfumes green.  To be fair there is something instantly refreshing about these light lime concoctions, that much like the autumnal golds or the deep purple and […]

Sequins seemed to rule supreme but couldn’t have been approached more differently. Beyonce channelled […]
