    Mon, 24 March 2014 3:00PM

    While semi-matte and matte skin has made a triumphant return to the beauty scene over the past few years, the use of powders remains a mystery to many. Won’t powder make my skin look cakey? Powdery? Dry? Cracked? I hear so many of you ask. Well, no. Thanks to a slew of clever new face… more

  • 10 Bits Of Brilliant Beauty Loot To Keep In Your Glovebox

    Thu, 13 March 2014 8:00AM

    Let’s be dead honest from the get go: between tweeting and texting and applying lipgloss at the lights, we’ve all been guilty of bending the rules once or twice (or with disturbing frequency if you’re British – an estimated 450,000 crashes per annum in the UK are believed to be caused by women applying makeup… more

  • Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder

    Thu, 16 May 2013 5:07PM

    In the palette, the powder is smooth and creamy – but it whisks onto skin lightly and airily, blending in seamlessly for a super-sheer finish. We love it best as a setting powder, buffed over foundation or tinted moisturiser with the Retractable Kabuki Brush ($68). And yes, it does what it says: gives a healthy… more

  • CoverGirl + Olay Pressed Powder

    Tue, 5 February 2013 4:16PM

    This is nice on its own although really comes into its own when worn over a well-blended base, to set and perfect your look. It’s also a dream to reapply, as it doesn’t do chalky or cakey. Thanks to the Olay component, conditioning ingredients make it comfy on the skin. It’s even lovely to wear around… more

  • Need Inspiration? Get Thee a Beauty Crush!

    Tue, 9 October 2012 2:52PM

    Yesterday, Hayley wrote about one of her all-time beauty crushes, Sienna Miller. I have to admit, I too have a soft spot for Sienna when it comes to beauty inspiration. Even in the grungy depths of her boho days, I loved her look, scruffy hair and toxic boyfriend all. Although if I had to highlight… more



  • What to Buy this Week: Benefit Flawless Complexion Makeup Kit

    Mon, 20 August 2012 1:06PM

    I don’t know about you, but by the time I’ve finished my morning skincare routine (cleansing, exfoliating, toner-ing, serum-ing, moisturising – and then there’s all the body stuff), my brain can sometimes feel a little befuddled. Which doesn’t always bode well for my makeup. My hair does okay, as you can generally get away with… more

    It sounds like you’ll be undoing all of the hard work your under-eye illuminator has done to get lovely crease-free, crepe-free coverage under your eye, but applying some translucent powder over your illuminator (or concealer) is going to make sure those dark circles remain covered all day. I learned this trick from a talented makeup artist… more
