play with pencils!

As adults, our opportunity for creativity and play can feel limited. We work hard, we pick up kids from school, we study, commute, sit at computer screens, shop for food, do laundry… the list is endless. Finding small moments in our daily lives that are playful + fun make a big difference! Any kind of expression – painting, drawing, watercolours, dancing, the clothes we wear, gardening, baking or crochet – can help us find a little joy. Makeup is the same; makeup is all about self-expression. Colour, texture, brushes… it’s a little like painting our faces, right? Our range of pencils for lips and eyes are fun, quirky, and colourful. Drawing lines, blending with fingers, it might be the only bit of creativity we get today – but we’ll take it! Explore for yourself and look out for all the tiny ways you can add ‘play’ into your life! Look#1 – Sesame lip liner, Brow pencil and Eye pencil FOREST

matchy matchy

Sometimes it’s fun to match! We match our shoes and handbags on special occasions, earrings with necklaces. Even a beach towel and bikini. How about eyes and lips? Pairing eyeshades with a matching lip colour is a great way to create a seamless look. It’s not always about finding the exact same shade of eyeshadow and lipstick – it’s more about finding complimentary colours that go together. A bit of this + a bit of that = perfection! We’ve broken down 2 looks to show you which beauties from our range to choose to create Andrea’s looks for yourself… Look #1 – light terracotta + ruby red

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!
