  • Two Unexpectedly Summery Shades for Winter: Lilac and Aqua

    Mon, 7 May 2012 12:40PM

    If there was one thing that MBFWA and the international runways taught us it’s that pastel shades are a) more than just a little divine and wearable and b) they suit everyone, as so delightfully demonstrated here. Now while your makeup mind may be knee-deep in rich, wintry hues, there’s nothing like a dreamy pop… more



  • Force of Lipstick

    Wed, 21 March 2012 12:25PM

    When it comes to lipstick, I’m a tough cookie of a customer. Sure, I’ll test it – that’s my job. But as for wearing it as an extra-curricular activity … Well, for one, I’m a bit too lazy in my off-duty time to make an effort with most of them. And two, I have enough… more



  • Paris A/W ’12: Valentino’s arty eyes (and how to get them)

    Thu, 8 March 2012 3:48PM

    Make-up at the Autumn/Winter shows is usually pretty striking to work back with the cold-weather clothing on the catwalks. And we’ve seen loads of cherry lips and dramatic eyes this week in Paris. Which is maybe why we lost our hearts to Valentino’s pretty-as-a-picture peepers. Reminiscent of a soft, ‘70s look, made modern with light… more



  • Milan A/W ’12: We’re Haunted by Marni’s Makeup

    Wed, 29 February 2012 4:30PM

    I think we can all agree that the heavy fringe is back. And, boy, has it been busy. It starred at the Oscars (on the likes of Rose Byrne and Rooney Mara) and stole the spotlight at Milan fashion week, where clip-in faux bangs were spotted (rather creepily) poking out of the stylists’ kits at… more



  • 2011 MTV Video Music Awards: Selena Gomez’s pretty doll-like makeup and lilac nails

    Mon, 29 August 2011 12:33PM

    Wowzers, Primps. Selena Gomez really is turning into a wee style queen. I mean, look at the ravishing lacy black frock she wore to the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards… Stunning? Tick. A little racy? Tick. Very grown-up? Tick? Stylist-to-boot? Double tick. But it wasn’t just Selena Gomez’s beautiful gown that got me in a little spin this morning, Primps,… more

  • Oscars ’11: Lacy lilac tales and Mila Kunis’ standout makeup

    Mon, 28 February 2011 11:16AM

    Wowzers. I want Mila Kunis’ makeup palette and I want it NOW! (Me? Demanding? No way.) Mila Kunis Um, I’m a little lost for words. But if you were to snoop inside my head right now, you’d probably spy the words beautiful, stunning, amazing and absolutely stinkin’ gorgeous flying around in their somewhere. Firstly, that lilac dress is… more

  • Pull off baby-pink lips & cheeks like a grown-up

    Wed, 2 February 2011 9:15AM

    Presenting to you, Ms Angie Harmon. She’s a natural beauty from way back, but I think you’ll all agree when we say she was looking particularly smashing at the SAG Awards with her classic ‘do and pastel pink cheek and lip combo, right? Until Angie, most brunettes the world over had shied away from pale pink eyeshadow and glosses for fear they left their skin… more

  • Jonathan Saunders’ soft, grey smoky eye

    Mon, 15 March 2010 12:46PM

    After all the bold lips and intense winter tones ruling the A/W ’10 runway, it was refreshing to see Jonathan Saunders’ soft and subtle makeup palette. Lilac and grey eye shadows were blended to create a delicate smoky eye, while the cheeks were gently flushed using a rosy pink hue. Pale, winter skin has never… more

  • Lilac lids and muted lips? Yes please, Chanel.

    Thu, 9 October 2008 10:02AM

    Lilac is a fairly predictable spring/summer makeup shade. We tend to gravitate towards pinks and purples and oranges when the weather becomes warmer because obviously we are inspired by the soft pastel tones of the heavily-fragranced country roses that grow in our gardens, or at the very least the fashion that hangs on the racks… more


  • Yes, you can wear purple eye shadow

    Wed, 27 August 2008 4:15PM

    One lovely way to wear the colour of the season is on your eyelids. By way of eye shadow. As opposed to sticking on some grape Hubba Bubba. And do, because purple eye shadow is going to be quite the little fashion enhancer this spring, what with all those soft, girly floral prints hanging out on… more
