THREE Cosmetics seems to have taken an interesting turn in its makeup aesthetics, moving ever farther away from the generic girlie cuteness that most Japanese brands are prone to, setting the pace with graphic editorial looks. The latest feature look for the Wild Cosmic Child A/W 2018 collection looks futuristic and mod, with a distinctly British vibe, which is neither cosmic nor wild. Regardless, if you consider the ability to transcend different genres, and stride boldly in an ever-challenging urban society, then you have finally found the mark.

Fall is one of my favourite seasons, and this round Chanel is bringing fashion runway sensibilities to life. Apotheosis Le Mat de Chanel plays with textures to create visual intensity, creating mesmerising gazes to bold unapologetic lips and edgy tips. There is plenty to explore, with a variety of options to achieve Lucia Pica’s tailored femme fatale look.

Make Up Store produces makeup that looks good for the every day woman, and does not play by conventional seasonal trends. The latest collection features 3 different looks, including of course a bronzed, sun-kissed siren. For the romantic, there are beautiful pieces to create a flirty and airy look. There are also a couple of edgier items for those who wish to exercise their creative freedom.

If you could have one wish this summer, what would it be? I think for most of us, above all else, we desire to be happy. But what happens if the pursuit of happiness leads us to be rather selfish? Is it nobler in the mind to seek solace in the greater good, or take arms against a sea of troubles for the light at the end of the tunnel? Two roads diverge in the woods… how would you choose?
Thank goodness some things in life don’t need much premeditation, especially when they are as gorgeous as By Terry’s Hippy Chic Summer 2018 Collection. Boho hippy relaxed vibes and edgy chic cool collide in this tightly curated collection.

The Royal Wedding had us all enthralled last weekend, although to be honest I missed the live telecast and had to catch up online. What impressed me most was the beautiful #MarkleSparkle, her glowy skin and airy gossamer play of colour that is so elegant and pure. I loved that moment during the ceremony when she snuck a sideways glance at her husband, and the most genuine shy smile broke across her face. That look really sang out to me in more ways than I can imagine, not least of which is how the transparency of it all is so on trend for this season. Though it is rumoured that Meghan Markle wore Dior makeup, I am personally favouring Chanel’s take with the Éclat et Transparence Collection for Cruise 2018.

The beauty pixies surprised me with an amazing trove of makeup goodies that is too delectable for me to not share it with you! Pixi recently collaborated with 3 gorgeous beauty vloggers – Dulce Candy, Chloe Morello and Weylie Hoang – to release 3 very special makeup kits that are suitable for just about anybody. I love that Pixi has always been about accessible beauty products for the everyday woman/girl, and by working with real live women, Pixi has really brought it home for me. Each of these pieces are so intuitive and easy to wear that I think you can pick any of them up without overthinking it, and enjoy them for a long time.
