    Sorry Evil Queen, I’m not “the fairest of them all”. My nanna used to tell me, “embrace the skin you’re in, darling. There are women out there who would die to step in your shoes”. I used to give her a fake smile and walk away with a wish to be fairer. This only goes to prove… more

  • How to: Use Crème-to-Powder Formulations

    Wed, 11 July 2012 9:29AM

    Apart from some epic fails and minor makeup misdemeanours, I’ve been able to work out why some textures work on me, and why some don’t. However, a cosmetic quandary that still stands is the crème-to-powder phenomenon. I have dry skin, so to me, the ‘P’ word is a dirty word. I want crème and hydration, but I… more

    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.
