  • How To: Never Look Tired Again

    Tue, 4 February 2014 8:00AM

    Big call, I know. But it’s totally do-able. The world never needs to know you woke up with a dog-tired complexion and a high-rise bouffant that requires some serious heat to style back down to earth. I’ll be honest, Primpers – it pays to be prepared. Waking up well kind of starts before you hit the sack…. more

    Mon, 3 December 2012 1:34PM

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve had one crazy busy year. I started at PRIMPED in February, had my second baby soon after, took two months’ maternity leave, and have felt like I’ve been running a marathon – while juggling lots of very large slippery balls – ever since. But – if I do say… more



  • Couture A/W ’12: How to Wear Crazy Colours

    Tue, 3 July 2012 4:56PM

    While Versace kicked off the current haute couture collections by opting for sexy, signature smoky eyes, Dior took a big technicolour risk with its makeup. In rooms wallpapered with colourful blooms, models wore floral-bright hues on their face. Think poppy-red lipstick, washes of iris-blue shadow, and orchid-purple or grass-green eye liner. All. Worn. At. Once. Sure,… more

  • The Beginner’s Guide To Wearing Colourful Eye Shadow

    Fri, 22 June 2012 1:42PM

    I have some brightly-coloured, sparkly MAC pressed powder eye shadows (my favourite shade is Aquadisiac), but how do I wear them without looking ridiculous?

  • Do you also have O.C.D.C.D? As in, Obsessive Compulsive Dark Circle Disorder?

    Mon, 12 March 2012 11:07AM

    It’s when nothing ever seems to brighten your eyes to total satisfaction, and you’re constantly touching up your under-eye concealer all day long. I have been a sufferer for as long as I can remember. I’ve never ever quite felt that my eyes were perky enough. Partly because they happen to be rather deep-set, which… more



  • Paris A/W ’12: Valentino’s arty eyes (and how to get them)

    Thu, 8 March 2012 3:48PM

    Make-up at the Autumn/Winter shows is usually pretty striking to work back with the cold-weather clothing on the catwalks. And we’ve seen loads of cherry lips and dramatic eyes this week in Paris. Which is maybe why we lost our hearts to Valentino’s pretty-as-a-picture peepers.
