  • How to: Re-create rock-chick-style eye liner

    Mon, 5 March 2012 12:50PM

    In the 1950s and ’60s, liquid liner was all about ultra-glamour, used to elegantly define feline-like eyes, and work back to highly arched eyebrows. But by the late 1970s and 1980s, liquid liner was in the daring hands of the rock-chicks, and used to form the basis of their smoky, smudgy eye makeup. Witness Debbie… more

  • Katy Perry on being the face of ghd, inspiring other chicks and her spiffy hair tips

    Wed, 27 July 2011 9:00AM

    I nearly fell off my chair when I first laid my blue peepers on Katy Perry’s snaps for ghd’s latest ad campaign. Her hair was perfect, her makeup was just as fun and vibrant as she is, and the background sets were just, well, exceptional. And considering she’s just been through a wee hair change-up recently… more

  • House of Holland’s tanned, winter glow

    Mon, 15 March 2010 12:47PM

    While the hair was all ‘80s scrunchies (remember those?) and headscarfs, House of Holland presented us with soft, fresh and oh-so adorable makeup. It was a little more tanned than we’re used to seeing at the winter shows but heck, rules were meant to be broken. Teamed with a nude gloss and a few lashings… more

  • RAFW: More ’80s style side-sweeps at Ellery

    Fri, 1 May 2009 2:29PM

    If you haven’t figured out yet that the full, ’80-style side sweep is more back than the backseat of Sydney’s bendy bus, you have clearly not been PAYING ATTENSHUNS. We saw it last September at Proenza Schouler at the S/S ’09 collections, and since then we’ve seen celebs do it, we saw Issa do… more



  • Milan Fashion Week: Gucci’s slick-as return to the ’80s

    Mon, 9 March 2009 4:53PM

    Gucci is probably the show I hang out for the most at the collections. They always, ALWAYS deliver incredible, inspiring hair and makeup, and are certainly in the Top Five Mega Trend Setters for runway hair and makeup.

  • Fringes! Strong Brows! Crimping! Dior goes wild

    Tue, 30 September 2008 3:48PM

    Oh, it’s so good to see a show with some serious effort being put into hair and makeup. Clearly it was the first show of the day, so the the hair and makeup kids actually had some time to create something unreal. (Yas and I were speaking to one of Bobbi Brown’s international makeup superstars… more
