Hair – what’s in?

Love all the hair styles that are in season at moment. Most are very soft looking with lots of height (which I love!) Bigger = Better!

Oscar de la renta


On the opposite side the sleek hairstyle with a top knot was seen all over NY fashion week. Think it was Victoria Beckham who I saw wearing this look last year on American Idol

Slicked hair - D&G, Micheal Kors

Marc Jacobs

 Plaits & braids are here again this season..keep them thick & soft with alot of height

Tsumori Chisato

The 70’s curl has been seen alot during the summer. Still in season but a little sleeker.Perfect for a glammed night out with the girlies.The best way to achieve this look, in my opinion, is with a curl blowdry.Or try heated rollers .


With all thats in,I think theres a style here for eveyone!Dont be afraid to try them -good luck!

Summer’s gone

After a real nice summer its easy to see autumn starting…the chill in the air,the lovely crisp leaves and the colours. As much as I love summer and all its beachy clothes,Im always excited about autumn. Just to put on the wools and boots again.These images remind me so much of that time of year!Another few weeks and we’re there!….

A/W 10 Makeup Trends

From the Redd-Velvet lip to dark ‘n’ dangerous eyes  here’s whats in season for A/W ’10…

The Face: Fresh, contemporary skin. Its a very romantic & sublime look with the color on eyes & lips. Keep foundation light – MAC face & body foundation is great. Peach/pink tones for blush & a hint of highlighter. Try go for a powdered highlighter so It wont be too heavy on the skin. Keep eyebrows thick and natural.

Fresh, dewy skin A/W10


For eyes its all about the eyeliner.Pull out a liner rather than flicking it up, blend out in a squarer shape rather than rounding it. Try MAC fluidline,very ease to use!Double lashes to darken the eye.Tried really good ones at salon called naturalash.They are definately the best to last and are super light on the eye.  Sparkles & glitter are a big hit this season..be careful though when applying!(use a cream base for the sparkles to stick!)Again the smokey eye is in with blacks,greys and beautiful dark greens.

Versace A/W10

“This trend puts a little bit of theatre back in the face. Put the ‘show’ back into ‘fashion show’! It’s a call back to glamour but in a very reworked way…a black eye now is about taking one simple element and tailoring it to the face and working it more playfully.”

Paris Fashion Week A/W10

For Lips: The red lip is a major idea this season. Its about taking a formal red shade and wearing it in an informal manner!(that is with dark eyes!)If applying reds make sure you you use a lipliner first (so it wont bleed on to the skin) and a good pigmented lip colour. Its worth paying that extra bit for a red lippie!

“Couture. Seductive. Rockabilly. Chic. Gothic. Lady Red has so many personalities.”MAKEUP ARTIST: Tery Barber

Armani A/W10

However if your not a “red lip girl” , taupe & nude is always a good look to go for. Dramatic,va-va-voom eyes are a must with nude lips!


Enjoy trying the eyes & lips!If you have any questions let me know..
