  • 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

  • Kate Moss named the face of MANGO and has beyond awesome hair and makeup to go with it.

    Wed, 25 January 2012 4:44PM

    I’m sorry, but someone needs to induct this woman into the makeup and hair hall of fame already. After a long stint with Topshop, The Moss made her first official appearance for the high street chain, Mango, this week but personally, I was too preoccupied with her wavy-hair and putty shade of lip gloss perfection… more

  • Fashion Talk: the right makeup for nude-toned clothes

    Wed, 7 September 2011 11:16AM

    It’s the polar opposite to my last fashion/makeup post that was all about colour blocking, but this week, Primpettes, we only have eyes for the sea of nude, blush and mushroom-toned floaty pieces that are taking over our wardrobes. Perfect for our entry into spring, right now, were seeing a big shift from pastel shades, like… more

  • 7 Makeup looks in 7 days: In the buff-looking lips and cheeks

    Mon, 29 August 2011 8:25AM

    So, lately I’ve been banging on and on about the virtues of no-makeup looking makeup. Just to recap: it’s easy-as to maintain, flattering on all skin types, perfect for those days when you a) slept  in and don’t have 32 minutes to spend in front of the bathroom mirror, b) don’t want your face paint to over shadow… more

  • Try Something New Monday: A makeup make-under

    Mon, 15 August 2011 1:09PM

    With spring well and truly on its way, Primpettes, there’s no time like the present to shake up our makeup routines. This week’s challenge: mastering no-makeup-looking makeup, is a relatively easy one. When applied correctly, subtle, barely-there-looking makeup can be equally as flattering as a bold lip or smoky eye. Plus, it’s perfect for the summer months… more

  • Q: What does job interview-appropriate makeup look like?

    Wed, 10 August 2011 4:51PM

    I recently received a very important question courtesy of PRIMPED fan, Bernie which I thought was most definitely worth sharing. It went a little something like this… I am applying for jobs in a couple of months and would love to know your suggestions for hair and makeup looks that are suitable for an interview. How… more

  • This town ain’t big enough for two Kates

    Mon, 4 July 2011 12:38PM

    Wow. What a weekend, Primpettes, especially for Britain’s two most famous Kate’s. While Kate Moss was busy tying the knot to her rocker hubby, Jamie Hince, Princess Kate, took a gamble, sweeping her trademark locks into a fancy up ‘do. And it paid off. Here’s a close up of Ms Moss looking incredibly a la naturale on her big… more

  • A message for Mrs Katie Holmes…

    Wed, 29 June 2011 4:27PM

    Dear Katie As a long time fan, I felt I needed to drop you a quick note to let you know how ridiculously fabulous you’re looking of late. Sometimes, it’s easy for us celeb watchers to get carried away with the slew of tabloid shots we see of you snapped up looking exhausted, usually after a… more

  • Why you need to stop wearing dark, moody makeup. Stat.

    Mon, 20 June 2011 4:21PM

    I’m a sucker for natural-looking makeup. And it’s got nothing to do with the fact that I’m a lazy sod who would rather hit the snooze button in the morning, because the reality of it is, no-makeup-looking makeup often takes twice as long as a smoky eye or bold lippie to create. But when done… more

    Mon, 6 June 2011 4:34PM

    Sometimes, when I look at pics of celebs parading down the RC, I can’t help but think gosh balls that slicked-back top knot is going to leave her with a whopping migraine before the hour is out, or heck, how can she breathe with THAT much foundation on?! And I really don’t mean it in a nasty way,… more
