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

A Popping Red Pout

A bold lip instantly creates a lasting impression & draws attention to a luscious pout.

Red lipstick is a true beauty icon. Timeless, classic and seductively chic – a red pout evokes smouldering ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’ and unmistakable appeal.

As the most popular lip colour for nearly a century, red lipstick is elegant, sophisticated and sexy. The popularity of red lipstick was significantly boosted by Hollywood Silver Screen icons, like Marilyn Monroe, who would often choose vivid shades of red. Red lipstick brightens the face and whitens your smile.  And with so many red tones now available – there is certainly the perfect shade to complement any complexion.

And did you know… During World War II women were encouraged to wear red lipstick as a morale booster? Servicewomen were also required to wear lip colour that matched the red chevrons on their uniforms and cords on their hats. To meet this demand Elizabeth Arden created the iconic Montezuma Red.

Rock a bold red lip flawlessly with some simple preparation and a little tender loving care. Before applying your red shade, gently exfoliate lips and use a light balm. Keep your eye makeup minimal so all attention is drawn to your lovely lips.

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
