  • Summer Inspiration: Makeup ideas from RAFW 2011

    Mon, 16 May 2011 9:56AM

    Not basking in a bath of bronze and Bo-ho as seasons gone by, RAFW 2011 revealed some truly beautiful looks that, luckily, you don’t need a masters in makeup artistry to replicate at home. Like the many of the clothes there was a continuation of last season’s trends that can be put into a few… more

  • RAFW 2011: A mix of love and angst at Stolen Girlfriend’s Club

    Fri, 6 May 2011 1:59PM

    Yes, it’s an assumption, but I’m fairly certain you’ve all been in love at some point, Primps. And because some form of heartbreak often follows love and all that it entails, I’m also going to assume you’ve experienced a dose of pain and angst in your life. I know I sure have. Don’t worry, though,… more

  • A snoop inside the mind of Terry Barber, M.A.C’s UK director of makeup artistry

    Fri, 6 May 2011 11:03AM

    RAFW is home to a number of hair and makeup ‘royalty’ right now, Primps. Yep, peeps like Napoleon Perdis, Lance Blanchette, Joh Bailey, Kevin Murphy, Michael Brown and Brad Ngata have all been skipping around backstage (and sometimes even front row), showing off their spiffy beauty talents. One other makeup god currently in town is Terry… more

  • Bespoke nail polish

    Thu, 5 May 2011 2:15PM

    Apart from the bang-on-the-money clothes, fashion week is also the place where nail trends and techniques are born. Enter layering. Rather than using a straight-from-the-bottle nail polish, the clever gang at OPI have been busy this week, layering different lacquers to create custom-made shades for some of the shows they’ve been covering. It’s such a… more

  • RAFW 2011: A display of matte black uniform ‘dos at Dion Lee

    Thu, 5 May 2011 1:48PM

    Even though you’re probably aware (and this most certainly is not an English class), the word identical means alike, or similar in every single way. And Dion Lee clearly loves this feeling of likeness and uniformity (and paid attention when he was in school), Primps, because this was the exact feeling captured in his show’s hair. “We… more

  • Runway to real way skin

    Wed, 4 May 2011 7:07PM

    Primpers, we may not be great at predicting the next ‘it’ bag or up-and-coming label, but one thing we do know for sure is that like a LBD, dewy, even-looking skin never goes out of fashion. In fact, you can spend oodles on a lipstick, heck, you can even blow your entire inheritance on a… more

  • RAFW 2011: Shakuhachi’s Brigitte Bardot-esque hair and ultra-glowy cheeks

    Wed, 4 May 2011 2:26PM

    Enough of the ‘70s, Shakuhachi says; it’s time for some sexy ‘60s flavour. And we’re more than a wee bit OK with that, Primps, because with slice of modernity added into the mix, Shakuhachi had one stunning RAFW look with cheeks that literally shone on the runway. THE MAKEUP. It’s colourful, luminous and absolutely beautiful. But I’ll… more

  • RAFW 2011: Talulah’s Moroccan peachy goodness and brilliant braids

    Wed, 4 May 2011 12:15PM

    Tucking into an actual peach always makes for some delicious fun, Primps, but peachy makeup on a lady’s mug is as equally divine. Add to that apricot palette a super creative braided ‘do and the result is one effortlessly cool, summer-esque kind of beauty look. Or, if you’re getting technical, you actually end up with… more

  • RAFW 2011: Video and How To: Architectural fringy fun at Kirrily Johnston

    Wed, 4 May 2011 8:58AM

    The beautiful Kirrily Johnston usually sports a ponytail, Primps, and in addition to that ponytail, she’s always got a fringe. It’s a classic style, and one that suits her to a tee. So, having said this, wouldn’t it make sense for the girls modelling her new collection to mirror her style? Yes, yes it would. And… more
