You know how I feel about professional make up. Generally speaking, it’s just not fit for everyday use. It’s meant for shoots and runways. But…   It depends. Really depends.

It’s a nice pun on ‘neon’ shades and ‘neutral’ shades in modern make up. British designer Christopher […]

The shades that will give you that understated elegance you’ve always been wondering how to achieve. […]

Every summer we get these beautiful Guerlain Terracota limited edition bronzers. This years it’s called Guerlain Terracota Terre d’Ete.       White plastic box.   C’mon now, luxury brands, why are you doing it?   This white plastic looks so ghastly in packaging. It really does. Cheap. It’s the opposite of luxury.   The design of the bronzer itself is stunning though.   It’s your personal sun in a box. Beautiful. Warm and summery. […]
