Get the Look: Lipgloss & Chainmail

The noughties revival has been gently gaining pace since Kylie Jenner decided she was bringing back the Von Dutch cap. It was a little soon, but her intentions were spot on. We’ve since seen the return of plastic chokers, asymmetric hems and can you believe it, cowl necks. Kendall Jenner sealed the deal on her […]

Blush Tests: Glitter @ Burberry AW16

Blush’s Top 5 Beauty Looks @ London Fashion Week – AW16

London Fashion Week seems to have finished as quickly as it started and whilst there was lots of front row action going on: like Marc Jacobs flying in to see his protegé A.V Robertson and new kids on the scene Anais Gallagher and Lottie Moss carrying on what their fam started; this season backstage seemed to […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma Show #NYFW Beauty

A celebration of diversity and the beauty of individuality, Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma show was a welcome surprise. Rih’s Fenty show of super soft oversized hoodies and racy lace-up cut-outs were perfectly paired with pared back skin, swept back hair doused in white powder and Rihanna’s signature black lip; the ultimate antidote to ghostly white lashes.  Set […]
