We are all about the color blue this week, with our latest lookbook, Blue Belle. It got us thinking about the color blue, and how we would wear blue makeup. Brightly colored makeup can be tricky — we like it done in subtle ways, with little other makeup. We came up with three looks we love — one with blue liner, one with blue eyeshadow, and for the last we got a little creative with a blue eye pencil. Read More
Each season as new fashion trends emerge, so do new beauty trends, and this spring/summer it’s all about the coral/orange lip color. It’s punchy, head turning, unique and will give a nice little pop to your summer outfits.
UPDATE: This post originally ran on the 7th of May, but because we’re in love with all things 90’s right now we thought we’d bring it back .
From our in-house Beach Designer: Early 1990’s Kate Moss is not only my favorite era of hers but it’s also the most perfect example of that no make-up look. Here are some helpful hints to getting that effortless natural bare look… It really is oh-so-simple.
I never clean my makeup brushes. Not once in my life have I ever done it. Well, before today I hadn’t. Read More
UPDATE: This previously ran on August the 14th, as we’re now shopping for Fall we wanted to bring it back to inspire you and your Fall wardrobe
The colour for fall for is deep and romantic and is perfect for your lips. The signature red lipstick we usually opt for takes a romantic and mysterious turn. Make your fall look more dramatic this season with a colour that’s not too far from a deep red bottle of wine with a plum tinge. Read More
UPDATE: This post originally ran on June 4th 2012, but with the warm weather still at high heat, the after glow is still on our minds.
A lovely glow comes onto your skin, it’s peachy pink and it screams summer love. It comes when you get flustered, when your heart starts racing, when you get shy and embarrassed, when you see a cute boy you’ve had a crush on for quite some time, when you’ve spent a whole day in the park basking under the sun and when your heart starts pumping from dancing all night under the hot heat… I love that glow
Sometimes you don’t need expensive beauty products you can be a natural beauty; I’m all about natural sources and benefits that come from the wild. There are a lot of things you can get out of herbs — they are not only great for adding interest to your cooking, but also can contribute wonderfully to your beauty regime.
Chanel’s latest resort collection was reminiscent of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette film. Pastel colours were not only in the clothes but trailed all the way to the hair and makeup.
The look… powdered wigs, rosy cheeks, painted lips which all fell in nicely with the French Versailles Palace where the collection was hosted. It may seem a bit much to wear on a daily basis, but we loved how fun the overall look appeared.
I remember I first discovered colored mascara in my teens, there was something about putting strikes of color around my eyes that made me feel somewhat magical. When Stella McCartney brought it back in her Fall 2012 collection nostalgia started to kick in.
Summer is the time when there are a lot of parties outside and endless hours spent at parks with your friends. I love the idea of having little sun gatherings with friends, saluting the sun with bright colours and giggles and not knowing how the day will end.
