Dsquared2 Fall 2017


I’m obsessed with the look that Charlotte Tilbury created for the girls at Dsquared2. Using all creamy products from her own line, they looked slightly wind burned with rosebud lips.

The awards season has officially begun for 2017. At the Golden Globes on Sunday there was no shortage of gorgeous gowns and beautiful makeup looks. Lily Collins standout brows perfectly set off the rest of her makeup look, which included warm toned shadow and a bright red matte lip. Chrissy Teigen wins for best skin. Her complexion was glowing perfection. Claire Foy’s eyes were the focus of her look. Neutral toned shimmery shadow was intensified with black liner and loads of mascara.

Limited Edition Beauty


Limited edition and exclusive are key words for me when it comes to shopping. I also enjoy a good deal, and since beauty products very rarely get marked down the end of the year is prime to shop. My favourites include Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick palette and Ortigia Sicilia’s hand cream and perfume oil, both are on sale! Between here and my trip to London my shopping needs are most definitely going to be met.

Winter Essentials




Wrapping up warm is the theme of the week because it is freezing out! I’m not into sub-zero temperatures but I am all about a beautiful wool coat and basically anything fur. During the winter months a good skincare regime is imperative. Serums and oils are the best for the face because they can penetrate deeper than a typical moisturizer and provide more hydration. Lips should not be left out of the equation. A lip exfoliator will smooth away dry skin and then apply lip balm day and night to protect your lips from the elements.

Tweezerman Eyelash Curler


When it comes to eyelash curlers I am obsessed with my Shu Uemura curler. However I’m always up for trying something new. The ProMaster curler works best on deep set or almond eyes, the opening is wider than the ProCurl which is designed for round eyes. I found that the ProMaster fits more comfortably in my hand to curl someone else’s lashes. Both curlers on the right eye shape, give a smooth ‘C’ like curl-no bent lashes. Like the Shu lash curler these are also made in Japan, and come with not two but three replacement pads.

2016 American Music Awards


Models, musicians, and actors hit the red carpet last night at the AMA’s. Gigi Hadid was the star of the evening in flawless makeup and no less than six wardrobe changes. Standard red carpet beauty prevailed like hyper-real skin with the right amount of shade and highlight, lots of lashes, and groomed eye brows. I really liked Zoe Saldana’s colourful shadow and winged liner. Karlie Kloss’ Atelier Versace dress was the focus of her look. Her understated makeup and sleek pony were the perfect match. Behati Prinsloo nailed the effortless cool vibe. Her black dress had interesting details and her rock n’roll eyeliner with just a bit of silver glitter in the corner was spot on! Ciara channeled  Bridget Bardot for her hair and makeup look, but I’m not sure how I feel about her dress. Lady Gaga looked incredible from head to toe in a white Brandon Maxwell suit. Gaga’s natural hair was pulled back in sleek low bun which worked well with her oversized hat; winged liner and a subtle pink lip completed my favourite look of the night.

Get the Look: Christian Dior AW16



The beauty look from Dior Fall 2016 goes quite effortlessly from the runway to a night out. The deep dark lip works on all skin tones for a dramatic pout, especially against perfectly flawless skin and  well groomed brows. Pile on mascara and pinch your lashes together for a spidery look. If your eye lashes need a little extra length apply a few individual lashes first then add mascara to them.
