On The 3rd Day Of Christmas…

Give Your Lips Scarlet Fever

What better way to exude high glamour this holiday party season then with a red lip? Create a long-lasting impression with a sensationally bold, luscious red pout.

Red lipstick can add a splash of elegance and sophistication to any look. The iconic beauty product, which has been the most popular lip colour for nearly a century, is an unmistakably classic look. Evoking ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’, the right red shade can brighten the face & even whiten your smile.

And with so many red tones now available, there is the perfect shade to complement any complexion.

Before applying your statement red shade…

To wear a bold red lipstick with faultless flare, start by gently exfoliating your lips and apply a light balm. And be sure to keep your eye make-up minimal to draw all the attention to your lovely luscious lips.

Worried about getting it on your teeth? Blot the excess lip colour lightly with a tissue and then place your finger in your mouth and close your lips around it. This will remove lipstick from the inside rim of your lips.

Style

On The 2nd Day Of Christmas…

Stylish Party Etiquette This Festive Season

Style extends beyond what you wear. True style emulates from how you hold yourself, your actions towards others and your charisma.

Iconic women from Grace Kelly to Diana, Princess Of Wales became renowned for their timeless beauty, elegance and style.  Each of these women – captivating the world with their natural charm and innate kindness – attributes that continue to inspire and delight today.

With the approach of the festive season comes an assortment of parties, gatherings and events to attend. Whether it is a work function, an intimate dinner party or a beautiful Christmas ball – party etiquette plays a monumental part in how people see and regard you.

 Circulate, Oozing Intelligence

When you arrive at the party be sure to circulate and speak with as many people as you can. Catch up with close friends; reunite with old acquaintances; and meet new people.

Embrace The Gift Giving Season

A stylish guest must never arrive empty-handed. From wine to champagne, flowers to chocolate – presenting your guest with a gift this festive party season exudes goodwill and kindness.

Arrive Fashionably Late {well just a little late}

Give your hosts time to prepare their party, finish setting up and getting ready. Arrive at least 15minutes late to avoid awkwardly waiting for your host to finish dressing.

Keep your Conversation Appropriate

Parties are the perfect occasions to let your hair down and enjoy yourself. Light-hearted, joyful conversations are the order of the day.

Most importantly don’t be a wallflower. Hold your own with captivating conversation and stylish allure… xx

The Inspiration Behind Red / Rot / Rouge

Paint The Town Red…

“If there’s one woman wearing red, she will inevitably be the eye-catcher
of the evening. It’s as though the room is suddenly illuminated
— simply perfect for a grand entrance.”
– Valentino

Following the launch of my second fashion art collection, I thought I would share some of the inspiration behind Red / Rot / Rouge…

While creating my Red / Rot / Rouge collection I was inspired by the glamour of London in the 60’s; the union jack; Kate Moss; brilliant red lips; Georgia Jagger; red nail polish; British telephone boxes; David Downton’s Illustration of Twiggy; thick textured paint; and of course Red! Vivid, bold, unforgettable, dramatic red…
