I am sure that you know that it’s time of Fashion Weeks and while many people are interested in the designer clothes and accessories I am really interested in the beauty/hair/nails at the shows. Don’t get me wrong, I like the clothes/shoes/bags etc but I love looking at the creative and often extravagant looks.
I’ve got the details about quite a few looks so I will publish some of my favourites. I really like this look by NARS so here are the details on how you can create it yourself!
LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics
TREND: Tribal eyes and muted lips
INSPIRATION: “The collection draws inspiration from the opulence of the Rococo period and the style of the Masai tribe in Africa,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul. “There are a lot of primary colors, but also gorgeous marabou feathers, so we wanted to create a balance to everything to ensure it was really believable. We’ve always done fresh, pretty, natural, and it was time for a strong makeup look.”
LOOK: “With Thakoon’s references to this idea of tribal opulence, I felt that if we were going to do “color” it would have to be focused on the eye with one central color theme, and nothing else. There was a lot of youth in the group of models, so we wanted to keep the look very fresh. Red was a natural choice, complimenting the use of color throughout the collection”
Below are the key products used to create the exclusive look:
- Brightening Serum £44
- Concealer (NEWLY formulated for Fall 2011) for now, try the
At last I am back, reading my e-mails and comments…My blog e-mail is full of information about some new exciting launches!
One of them is the Rouge Bunny Rouge new look which is called Isola Bella (what a beautiful name) which is just gorgeous! One of my favourite looks by them so far…
I like how this look is described by the brand so I thought I’d share with you:
“Isola Bella evokes the ease of respite during a mid-summer day in a scenic nook of an island. Tropical colours are inspired by its exotic flora; fluttering shades of green and grey around the eyes, terracotta for an overall glow, and the full bloom of rose on the lips, making Isola Bella very feminine and glistening. Summer reflections are captured in the make-up resulting in a dreamy but vivid look.”
You can create this look yourself with the following products:
- MILK AQUARELLE Liquid Foundation ‘Chestnut Milk Parfait’
- NAKED DISGUISE Glide Concealer ‘Clio’
- FINE-SPUN LIGHT Luminous Skin Wand ‘Alula’
- AS IF IT WERE SUMMER STILL… Bronzing Glow Powder ‘at Neatherway Cove’
- SILK AETHER Long-lasting Cream
This is not fair! Just after I got this set by Jo Malone, which I really love and will write my thoughts about it later, there is a new collection which I want.
Of course! Now it’s the Jo Malone Tea Fragrance Blends.
As a huge fan of tea and have quite a big collection, I never have less than 10 different teas at home, so these colognes sound like a must have for me.
So far here is the official information and I hope to share my own thoughts later.
Jo Malone Tea Collection Sweet Lemon Cologne
Sweet Lemon is a vibrant, mouth-watering cologne that mirrors the custom of adding a slice of freshly cut lemon or a sprinkle of sugar to a cup of just-brewed tea to lift, lighten and brighten the infusion. A spritz of Sweet Lemon Cologne—with its hints of pineapple, peach and fresh green cypress—misted over your favourite tea fragrance will lend it translucency and a zesty fruitfulness with a sugary twist.
Jo Malone Tea Collection Sweet Milk Cologne
That particularly British notion of adding cool milk to hot tea in order to create a drink with a comforting, rounded richness is reflected in the avant-garde creation of Sweet Milk Cologne. Just a splash beneath your favourite tea scent will give it an incredibly creamy depth. The expertly crafted milk accord has an aroma that is fresh and sweet at the same time. Blended with star anise, almond and vanilla, it’s addictive and reassuring. Just like the very best cup of tea.

It’s not a secret that I don’t really do nude lips. I don’t like nude lips on myself plus most of the shades don’t look flattering on me, I look really washed out.
I am sure I could find a perfect nude but I can’t say that I was searching for one. But today I am going to show you the nude that I absolutely love!
I am talking about BECCA’s Sheer Tint Lip Colour in Yasmina.
It is described as a sheer mauve nude and is priced at £22/€28/$24 (yeah, as usual everything is so expensive in the EU).
First of all I have to say that I really like the simple and elegant design of this lipstick which is a purse-friendly! It “twists and locks” so it doesn’t open in your bag. I should have read that before I got angry, I was blaming the hand cream that I’ve just applied in the fact that I couldn’t open the tube. lol I should have just twisted it instead of pulling…
The lipstick itself gives a very beautiful light coverage, and as the name suggests it reminds me of a tint. It gives enough of colour but doesn’t feel heavy. The texture is lovely and itRead More
