  • Just landed: Bourjois Paris 123 Perfect Foundation

    Mon, 11 June 2012 10:44AM

    You don’t have to be my best buddy to know I am insanely fussy when it comes to foundation. In this line of work, I’ve had the pleasure of trying more skin perfectors than you’ve had hot dinners and I (along with my oily, problem-prone skin) take the job of critiquing their formulas very seriously. While… more

  • Easy Tips to Help You Spring-Clean Your Beauty Loot

    Thu, 24 May 2012 4:14PM

    Last weekend, we moved house. I like to think of moving house as a juice-detox for your life -minus the sugar cravings. It gives you a chance to reevaluate all your material belongings to simplify, purify and de-clutter your existence. Which brings me to my next topic: hoarding. While some people collect stamps and others acquire… more

  • How to: Get Camilla Belle’s CK One-Approved Makeup Look

    Tue, 15 May 2012 12:16PM

    The inbox of a beauty writer is truly a thing of joy. The ‘trill’ heralding incoming emails always means news of overseas trends and incoming cosmetic launches have landed in my laptop. This is the stuff my dream blogs are made of, so I was especially excited when my trusty cyber-pigeon woke me up to the news… more

  • 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

    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
