Happy Valentines’ Day! This year’s festival of love falls right smack in the middle of Chinese New Year, so I thought it is apt to introduce the perfect red lipstick on this special occasion. A red lip signals confidence, femininity and sexiness; no woman should be without her go-to red lipstick. No 2 reds are the same though, the slightest tweak in undertone can make a huge difference. And now, Shu Uemura has designed a universal red lipstick to suit the Asian woman!

I am a huge fan of Tom Ford makeup, especially their sexy soleil collections that bring out the best glow in skin…who can resist? The Winter Soleil 2018 collection was released last November, and I had already reviewed the Eye and Cheek Palette here. Today, I would like to show you the rest of the collection, along with my first impressions on the new items.

The Japanese typically favour soft pastels colours for Spring, so it is a wonderful surprise to see Kanebo design an entire collection of makeup around the colour red. For Kanebo, red symbolizes the essence of life, and defines the complexion. So to bring out everybody’s inherent beauty, Kanebo has developed its own 5R color story that has a different hue and intensity of red pigment to suit every skin tone and imbue it with a natural healthy color.

I may be a little behind the times, but it feels like I’ve only just gotten hold of the Lunasol Winter 2018 collection a few weeks ago. The first weeks of this year have been incredibly busy and with Ezra starting Primary School, I’m always out of the house before the sun rises, and dead asleep by 9pm. Initially I thought I’d have to do my makeup at work, but surprisingly the Lunasol Winter 2018 pieces are so easy to use that I’ve been living on it! Come take a look.

The onset of spring should be a time of celebration as sunshine returns and everything is new and fresh again. It has always perplexed me that spring makeup tends towards pale washed out hues, but Chanel has me all excited now with a whole new vivacious collection that is anything but ordinary. The new Vision d’Asie: L’Art du Detail Spring 2019 Collection seeks to sculpt the facial contours with pearly luminescence, and contrast that with vivid hues on the eyes and lush matte lips.
