hyperpigmentation: don’t cover it, glow with it!

Hyperpigmentation is no joke! As a makeup artist, I come across many women asking for a full coverage foundation. They ask me to apply foundation & concealer, plus makeup powder all over the face, in order to cover their pigmentation as much as they can. But let’s be honest: too much makeup doesn’t make us feel fresh or free! Something in these women’s eyes tells me that their hyperpigmentation makes them feel angry, sad, insecure… and basically unpretty. I know it affects them whatever their story is: pregnancy, sun pigmentation or age pigmentation. Personally, I think that every feature of you is beautiful and makes you unique, and you don’t have to feel ashamed. I’m going to share some tips on how to wear a light fresh makeup while covering your pigmentation. The secret is the GLOW.

new year shine

It’s 2019 and we are ready for awesomeness! January is the perfect time to vision all we want to accomplish for the year. If you are feeling a little sluggish after a long holiday + festive season, or maybe like your skin has had too much sun, snow or too many parties – focusing on detoxing, eating clean food, plenty of water plus early nights. It’s the recipe to get your glow back. That’s the inside. Now for the outside! We can’t go past a highlighter to bring in the new year, keep the holiday feels rolling, and also to shimmer to the office because, let’s face it, for January, we’d all rather be on a beach somewhere! Highlighter is the perfect way to remind yourself of all the exciting things 2019 will bring, of the dreams that will blossom and the moments that’ll leave us breathless. The lovely Ingrid shows us how it’s done…

here comes the sun

It’s the start of summer in the southern hemisphere. Think long days, balmy nights, endless swimming and lots of sun! We love summer, it’s a big part of the Australian lifestyle. Bring on beach days, salty skin and vegan ice cream. Tropical heat is amazing when our winter bodies first start to warm up, but some days are just too hot (and sweaty!) Beach umbrellas & hats are essential, sandals come out to play and no way do we want to spend hours blow-drying hair.

party eyes

It’s been a long year and finally – holidays are here! We wish everyone a happy and restful festive time with family and friends. To celebrate, we are getting glammed up! Most of the time, daily makeup routines consist of foundation, bronzer or blush, colour on the lips and mascara. This certainly is my daily look. For the silly season though, I want to go all out. I don’t usually focus on my eyes, and this year, I want to highlight them, add a bit more drama and make my eyes stand out. Our friend Regina has similar hair and complexion, and we used her natural beauty as the perfect palette to try out a look that’s all about the eyes. If you don’t normally wear a lot of eye makeup, this is the perfect tutorial to let your eyes sparkle. For festive dinners, celebrations and parties, this is your look!

makeup your way

Some days you wear lip balm and a smile, your gorgeous freckles shine through. Other days, you want a full face of makeup. We are all so unique, our moods change and one of the great things about makeup is how it allows us to express our personality and how we are feeling. Anyone who says makeup isn’t creative, isn’t thinking about it in the right way! How we dress, how we style our hair and what we put on our faces is a way that we show who we are in the world.

make it minimal

We like quick fixes, no-fuss and multi-tasking products… For busy days, early mornings and long days – we want easy makeup rituals that save time. We want that extra ten minutes of hitting the snooze button on cold mornings, drinking tea and reading a magazine before work, snuggling with the cat before racing to the train. We are all about moments that count & finding solutions that give us more of the good things in life. Two of our best versatile beauties feature in these looks. Carrot colour pots & ginkgo micellar water!  Ingrid from Norway shows us how it’s done.
