  • Ace Your Base: 4 New Foundation Formulas We’d Like You to Meet …

    Thu, 10 May 2012 12:01PM

    One of the many awesome, must-replicate makeup tips I’ve picked up over the years was from guru Rae Morris, who insists that we should all own (at least) two foundations, one shade for summer and one winter. Since I brought out the faux fur last week, I figured it’s time that we start updating our… more

  • MBFWA ’12: Sorry Matte Makeup, Dewy Skin Is Here To Stay

    Wed, 2 May 2012 9:02AM

    For the past few seasons, matte-looking skin has been key to pretty much every runway and celeb makeup look, but if we’re to take our cue from this year’s fashion week, it seems dewy skin is making a major comeback. Case in point: check out the creamy complexion and dewy cheeks as seen at Michael Lo… more

  • Video: Five Things I’m Loving This Week

    Fri, 23 March 2012 9:02AM

    Since overcoming the death of my trusty old laptop, I am now in the hands of a sparkly new MacBook Pro. Hooray! The relevance of this, Primpers, is that my new techy buddy comes with even more captions and fancy transitions for my ‘Five Things I’m Loving’ videos. Let’s just say, I don’t think I’ve… more

    If, like us, you’re suffering from Fashion Week Fatigue Syndrome – what with the New York, Milan and Paris runways only just rolled away for another season, and last week’s L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival extravaganza – you’ll be relieved to hear that LMFF, among all the fabulous in-store-now frocks that were on display, unearthed a… more

  • Paris A/W ’12: We go beyond the brows at Chanel (and find a user-friendly look)

    Fri, 9 March 2012 9:05AM

    So, yes, they caused a pretty big stir this week. Even the news networks ran stories about Miranda Kerr’s semi-precious eyebrows at Chanel. This is probably about as much press as an eyebrow ever had, and it has to be said that Chanel’s creative director of make-up, Mr. Peter Philips, certainly made a splash with… more

  • The one where I try on mousse foundation for size, and find the perfect primer

    Tue, 6 March 2012 10:44AM

    I’m not what you’d call adventurous when it comes to my wardrobe. I have a staple, signature look – it’s usually based around some sort of maxi dress – and I rarely veer from it (true! very few people have seen my knees). It recently struck me that I also have a rather limited foundation wardrobe…. more

  • How To: look as pretty as a Parisienne

    Wed, 29 February 2012 2:48PM

    I’m a hopeless Francophile. I love everything French, especially if it hails from my favourite place on Earth: Paris. So, with that city’s Fashion Week A/W ‘12 just beginning, I’m feeling in a particularly ooh-la-la frame of mind. While the coming week is sure to launch beaucoup de new hair and makeup trends, the funny… more

  • Milan A/W ’12: Dear Alberta Ferretti, where have all the good girls gone?

    Mon, 27 February 2012 11:12AM

    Things we expect from Alberta Ferretti: feminine, floor-sweeping gowns that are high on celebrities’ wish-lists come awards season. Also, runway shows rich in ladylike fabrics, pleats, draping and elegant embellishment. All accessorised with pretty, girlish makeup and flowing hair. Things we do not expect from Alberta Ferretti: models sporting slick, masculine chignons and pared-back faces. So you… more

    Fri, 17 February 2012 10:00AM

    A few weeks back, I posted a piece that was all about sneaky little beauty habits that can be causing us to look way older than our years. Along with wearing too much eye liner and neglecting to slather on SPF, foundation overloading was one of the major offenders. We all own bottles of the… more
