Olympic Metallics

Be inspired by the London Olympics & dress for gold, silver or bronze…

All that sparkles…
no Olympic event is complete without the lustre of precious metal. Salute your Olympic heroes’ with a glamorous, shimmering of gold, silver or bronze.

While diamonds are a girl’s best friend – precious metals can be equally enchanting. Whether you choose to add your metallic sparkle to wrists with selection of heavy jewels or to your eyes with a glistening shadow – molten metals can add a show stopping shimmer.

And while discretion is often the epitome of chic, don’t be afraid to embrace the heavy metal movement. A full length metallic gown can be truly hypnotising…

Will you be going for gold, silver or bronze? xx

Colourful Peepers

The eye make-up palettes from the Fall collections were full of technicolour delights. From vivid orange to hypnotic green, the eyes have it in candy colours that pop perfect for your Easter long weekend.

Atmospheric eye make-up has a retro elegance for Fall. Take your cue from rich hues; bold lines; and an explosion of concentrated colour – across the lids, lashes & lips.

Statement making peepers appeared across the runways. At Prada, futuristic eyes had a Mad Max inspiration. Black was painted around the eyes and finished with bursts of orange intensity at the brow. Prabal Gurung’s brilliant blue plumes evoked a striking peacock; while at Stella McCartney lashes were layered in beautiful blue mascara.  

At Anna Sui, theatrical cobalt blue eyeliner flicks made a startlingly beautiful impression. To create the look, a thick liquid line was drawn along the models’ upper lashes with an upward flick on the end. The inner rim was traced with a white pencil to open the eye, before a coat of mascara added a dramatic 60’s feel.

Inspired by candy coloured brights, eye make-up is delicious enough to eat this Easter…

Will you embrace candy coloured eye make-up? xx

Sugar Sugar

Crave a sugar hit? The eyes have it with bursting colours so exquisite you cannot help but become eye candy.

Be bold and brilliant in colours so vivacious your eyes will shimmer like delectable sugary treats. From striking icy blues to luscious pink blooms, embrace a colour palette worthy of Andy Warhol and Studio 54. 

‘Candy Face’ the new Yves Saint Laurent makeup collection took its inspiration from a range of delicious delights. Of the collection, Lloyd Simmonds, Yves Saint Laurent’s International Make-up Artist has said:

“The gleam of an infinite profusion of dazzling fruit jellies, translucent raspberry and wild strawberry, mandarin orange, melon, mango and persimmon bring a gorgeous flush to the Yves Saint Laurent woman’s face.

Her smile is as bright as shining sugared drops and syrups: shocking cherry, tangerine, grape and pomegranate, crystallized rose petals, mint and chocolate.”

To create this delicious look, use one or two colours & really build up the colour intensity.

Apply the darker colour to the eyelid and tonally blend it out to soften the effect. To add an additional burst of colour intensity, draw a graphic cat’s eye liner in a brilliant complimentary tone.   

When creating a candy coloured eye palette, be sure to keep your blush and lip colour minimal. Strong eyes call for soft pink lip gloss and a dewy fresh complexion.

“There are no real rules in choosing colours… It’s good to experiment.” – Lloyd Simmonds (pictured above)
