  • Makeup That’s Awesome For Your Skin

    Mon, 20 October 2014 8:30AM

    Life is crazy busy. Multi-tasking is the modern beast (I know this because I’ve seen SJP juggle Wall Street sharks and lullabies via mobile in an I Don’t Know How She Does It harried frenzy. So it must be true). The more we do a gazillion things at once, the more we expect the world around us to do… more

  • Meet Harley Viera-Newton, New York It Girl and Current Hair Muse

    Tue, 9 September 2014 5:40PM

    Those New York girls are an enviably gorgeous and groomed group. But downtown darling Harley Viera-Newton is a little more, well, everything, than most. The former model-turned-DJ, not to mention social media star, also has a new gig: as TRESemmé It Girl for New York Fashion Week. Not surprising, given that heavenly hair of hers. We were… more

    No girl wants to suffer from beauty back-ache – aka that particular type of spinal pain that’s caused by the lugging around of an entire makeup stash. But every girl needs a bag of beauty tricks on hand for those inevitable touch-up times throughout the day. The solution is a carefully edited pack of makeup essentials. If… more

  • How To: Layer Your Skincare (Or, The Secret To Stunning Skin)

    Tue, 5 August 2014 2:15PM

    Beauty lovers in many Asian countries have been layering their skincare for years now, sometimes with up to seven products. Go to any major beauty counter in, say, Tokyo, and chances are your favourite skincare range will offer at least another step – usually called something along the lines of an essence, water or activator. Just… more

  • How To: Create a Gorgeous Dewy Complexion (and Pretty Makeup Look for Winter)

    Tue, 24 June 2014 8:30AM

    The most fashion-forward celebrities right now might be sporting matte foundation, cheekbone-carving contour powder and nude lips but – call me old-fashioned – I personally prefer a pretty, fresh and feminine style of makeup. Like the type Olivia Munn does so well: She’s all dewy skin, flushed cheeks and pops of pink – and so utterly gorgeous. If… more

  • How To: Take Your Beauty Inspiration from Grace Kelly

    Mon, 2 June 2014 11:30AM

    Grace of Monaco hits cinemas this week. Reviews have been less than pretty, but for those beauty (rather than cinema) buffs among us, I can’t imagine a better film to see on the big screen when it comes to hair and makeup inspiration. Princess Grace, of course, was one of the ultimate beauties of last century… more

  • How To: Wake Up Sleepy Skin Cells

    Wed, 28 May 2014 4:00PM

    My hair is quick to stand to attention each morning – more often than not at a variety of mystifyingly obstinate right-angles – but my skin cells? Apparently they need to be roused too. In the cold hard light of day, it has come to my attention that skin cells have their very own state of… more

  • Upgrade your Makeup, Downgrade your Age (Part II): Eyes

    Tue, 13 May 2014 3:00PM

    Following on from last week’s upgrade masterclass which focused on foundation, this week I am peering closely into peepers, and the secrets behind making eyes look younger, brighter and perennially youthful. The key to making eyes look more vibrant is three-fold;  amp up your skincare, rethink the texture of your cosmetics, and curtail your old-fashioned heavy-handed application. Take Gwen… more

  • How To: Make Face Powders Work For You

    Mon, 24 March 2014 3:00PM

    While semi-matte and matte skin has made a triumphant return to the beauty scene over the past few years, the use of powders remains a mystery to many. Won’t powder make my skin look cakey? Powdery? Dry? Cracked? I hear so many of you ask. Well, no. Thanks to a slew of clever new face… more

  • Murumuru Butter: The Next Big Thing In Beauty

    Wed, 19 March 2014 8:00AM

    First there was shea butter, then there was argan oil, then coconut oil, and now…now, there’s murumuru (or Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter to be precise, Primpers!). The name alone is mesmerising. And so are the potential benefits – smoother hair, softer lips, a high-gloss finish…Murumuru butter is the yellowy-white fat from the seeds of a… more
