Tom Ford has been unrelenting in changing up its makeup offerings lately! First the brand redefined its eye colour offering by breaking up several of its well-loved eye colour quads and offering them as singles in an updated formula; and now it is going a step further by pushing out an entire wardrobe of never-before-seen colours dripping in shimmers and foil. Next, the brand has reimagined one of my personal favourite patent finish lip colour as a new lip lacquer, pushing it to the maximum boundaries in terms of colours and finishes. This SS2018, Tom Ford heralds in the future of makeup with the Tom Ford Extrême Collection!

Nothing spells summer more perfectly than tropical colours so bright you can barely open your eyes, and an air so heavy with the fragrance of ripened fruity that you can almost taste it. This season, Jo Malone has managed to encapsulate the quintessence of summer in a bottle that is the most exceptional yet!

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.

Goodness, is it Summer already?! I suppose somewhere in the world, it is always sunny and fabulous. Tom Ford released its Summer Soleil 2018 collection about a month ago in the US, and I had my eye on the new eye & cheek palette right away. In addition to releasing colour variations of some core members of the soleil line, Tom Ford has also introduced a couple of brand new items this season. Here are my picks from Tom Ford’s summer 2018 collection:
