Dior Star Foundation Really is a Star

Posted by & filed under The New Thing.

In the wonderful world of foundation when something is described as dewy, it’s almost always a code word for ‘sheer coverage’.

The Makeup Menu #5

Posted by & filed under The Video.

My everyday makeup routine never stays the same for long. With just one face, a never ending list of products to test and my tendency to be a bit of a floozy beauty-wise, things get mixed up week to week. Of course to the everyday bystander it looks like I wear the exact same regime… Read more »

Posted by & filed under The Forum.

Firstly I must point that out that I’m not canvasing for advice for myself here, but instead for my newly engaged sister *squeals*. I could not be happier for her and her now-Fiancé and come next summer I’ll no doubt be walking down the aisle in my Chief Bridesmaid garb, blubbing uncontrollably as I do… Read more »

The Press-On Lip Colours

Posted by & filed under The Edit.

I love a good bold lip. I also love ‘easy to apply, no touch-ups required, don’t need to look in a mirror till the end of the day’ makeup. Herein lies the problem.
