bronzed sunset

I don’t know about you, but for me a sunset is the most beautiful vision to watch. It’s stunning, romantic, and it leads to my favourite part of the day, the night. Thinking of sunsets, I created this beautiful bronzed smokey look that´s wearable from dawn to dusk. Yes, you read right, a bronzed SMOKEY eye look. You might think that a smokey eye is only for celebrities and their MUAs, but that is not true. You too can achieve this sexy eyeshadow look! I know that this is one of the most feared looks to create because of the difficulty of the technique. I can show you how to create a simple bronzed tone eye, that anyone can achieve. Before we start, remember 2 key points: 1. Keep the darkest colour towards the lash line. It keeps the makeup modern and fresh, and ensures you are drawing more attention to the eye. 2.

Eyes are a beautiful part of the face. We want to highlight them and show them off. But did you know that focusing on the face is important to get great eye definition? Sometimes we get carried away with fancy eyeshadows, or over-apply eyeliner and forget that the rest of the face is the palette for amazing eye styling. Start with the face first, smooth your complexion, apply natural colour, highlight cheekbones, lips and groom brows – these essential steps will get you the bright eyes you want, just as much as a smoky eye tutorial or your new mascara. Remember – bright eyes on a dull complexion won’t have the same effect…

red & pink

Hooray for friends, the people who get us through bad times, and make good times even better! Here’s to all the laughter, tears, dancing, endless heart-to-hearts, hugs, being a shoulder to cry on and having a shoulder when you need it… We share so much with our bosom buddies, we wanted to create a look for 2. Think – getting ready for a party together, bridal party makeup, housemates sharing the mirror on a Saturday night, matching lips with your sister… We thought it would be fun to experiment on two of our fav gal-pals, Pausha & Camilla. They have different complexions and features – we wanted to see what happened when we used the same products on them. We think it turned out super cute, you can do this with your friends!

moringa mornings

For busy mornings, shared mirrors & skin that’s in need of a little lovin’… If you start the day with exercise, a swim, a surf, road-running or wake-up with dry skin, our moringa all-beauty crème will give your skin the pep it needs. This moisturising cream is versatile and designed to care for all skins, men included. Men’s skin can tend to be thicker and in need of a real boost of vitamins and hydration. We’re glad it’s 2019 and men can take care of their skin, spend a little money on products that make them look and feel good, and also – prevent damage from sun exposure, pollution and the weather. Switching to natural skin products can alleviate many common skin complaints, including dryness, redness and breakouts. And we all know that limiting our consumption of chemicals – both internally and externally – is a good thing.
