  • How to: Wear Cream Eyeshadow

    Fri, 1 March 2013 11:30AM

    Cream eyeshadow, when done well, is oh-so-pretty. Exhibit: image: Estée Lauder But thing is, it’s easy to get cream shadow wrong (read: messy) if you don’t first of all know a few key steps and tips. Without further ado … First up, apply concealer or, better still, a lid primer. This will ensure that your cream shadow sticks to… more

  • New York A/W ’13: Five New Catwalk-Approved Lip Colours to Consider for the New Season

    Tue, 12 February 2013 4:04PM

    You know the drill: When it comes to colourful or heavy makeup, it’s either all about the eyes, or the focus is directed onto the lips. So if the recent smoky-taupe or purpled-up lid looks haven’t tickled your fashionable fancy, then this is the post for you. Because, dear Primpers, there has been quite the feast of luscious… more



  • New York S/S ’13: Could You Forgo Mascara?

    Wed, 12 September 2012 12:44PM

    Some runway trends obviously don’t translate to off the catwalk. Take, for instance, the Donna Karan show, where a magenta lip liner was used … on the eyes. Different? Sure. Edgy? Perhaps. Pretty? Not at all. Moral of the story: if it doesn’t look good on a model – who is paid to look good, after all… more



  • New York S/S ’13: Could White Nails Really Make a Comeback?

    Tue, 11 September 2012 12:59PM

    There’s a crazy amount of nail art going on at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, I do like it. But some of us are not so artistic. Read: yours truly. So there’s a part of me that really wants to rebel against the two-and-more-toned nailcolour trend. Ironically, I haven’t found myself running back to the… more

  • A/W ’11 New York: Polish the silver, Primpers!

    Wed, 16 February 2011 11:51AM

    Despite what fashion folk tell you, I’ve always believed you don’t necessarily need to pop on a pair of sky-high heels to look polished. Instead, I’ve always gone with a splash of gold eyeshadow across the lids, or a slick of gold nail polish for its knack to make any outfit, including Tracky-Dacks, look purposefully put-together and expensive. That was until this… more

  • A/W ’11 New York: Straight, shiny hair straight from fashion week

    Tue, 15 February 2011 4:18PM

    Quite possibly the most wearable hairstyle to strut its stuff down the runway so far, not only is the slicked-back ‘do easy to style yourself, but it frames the face beautifully, looks equally as smashing on blondes as it does brunettes and works a treat on day old hair. Put simply, it’s simply marvelous! We could bang on about it for hours,… more

  • A/W ’11 New York: Put away the bleach because bold, bushy brows are back

    Tue, 15 February 2011 12:01PM

    It’s no secret that we’re a little obsessive with our brows here at PRIMPED. We like them thick, bold and a couple of shades darker than our hair colour, because qualities such as these allow our brows to frame the face and give us a non-surgical face lift. Having said all this, it’s no surprise to… more

  • S/S’11: Bronzed face and tangerine winged liner at Derek Lam

    Wed, 15 September 2010 9:38AM

    I’m a huge fan of Derek Lam Primpers, not just because his collection at NY Fashion Week was a genius fusion of femininity and Big City edginess, but because old mate Derek likes to take risks. Never one to play it safe, Mr Lam sent his A-List clan of ubermodels (Abbey Lee Kershaw, Anja Rubik)… more
