The Best Burgundy Palettes

When it comes to a smokey party eye, burgundy is the new black. I’m putting this down to the current consensus that less makeup is more, (even if we’ve definitely got quite a bit on.)  The classic black suddenly seems a little heavy for a night out, whereas burgundy offers a softer, bronzer glow. It’s […]

Blush Tests – Dior’s Dark Lip

Hey guys, did you hear that in Autumn it’s a really cool and interesting idea to wear a dark lip? You heard it here first, OK? OK, I know, this is a boring idea and not exactly groundbreaking beauty journalism, but the Dior runway look made me feel excited about a dark lip for Fall, […]

The Autumn/Winter Atelier Versace show was an absolute beauty treat. Blessed by the magic of Pat McGrath, models came down the runway with an array of looks: dark blackberry lips, graphic blue eyes, or metallic finished skin.

Blush Tests: Glitter @ Burberry AW16

I’ll be honest: working with glitter fills me with dread. The shimmery forays of 11-year-old me come rushing back to mind whenever I see a twinkling eyeliner or lip. The sparkle reminds me too much of Claire’s Accessories, candy necklaces and scented gel pens for me to take it seriously. But when I saw Edie […]

Get the Look – Nude Lips for Dark Skin

  Finding anything ‘nude’ coloured when you’re darker of skin can be a huge challenge.
