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…
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!

To makeup or not to makeup? It’s totally up to you! Our relationship to makeup is personal – it can change over time or stay consistent for decades. Some women prefer neutrals, while others experiment with vibrant colours. Our makeup routine can reflect how we are feeling, be used to change how we feel or be an outlet for creativity. You can love wearing makeup daily or only on special occasions – either way, we want you to LOVE your skin, how it feels and how it looks in the mirror. We celebrate skin with makeup on it, and skin without. We want you to feel great when you are all made up for an event, and when you are bare-faced and casually dressed. We love bright lipstick with old jeans, and cocktail dresses with barely-there makeup. In our world – anything goes. look #1: BEAUTY This could be for home only, a NYE party or heading off to yoga. It’s a guaranteed natural glow!
