Brooke Shields x MAC Cosmetics

I honestly think MAC Cosmetics are picking stranger and stranger people to collaborate with. The latest is Brooke Shields, which would have been fitting for the actress, author, and former model about 20 years ago but now? I’m just not so sure.

Back in the day Brooke was a gorgeous model and these days she is still a striking woman. I loved her in Suddenly Susan but she isn’t a person I would think of when it comes to remarkable style or gorgeous facial features. While her eyebrows have always been a bit of a topic amongst beauty watchers, no one can deny that her big, dark brows are now completely on-trend. So what does this mean for an entire cosmetic collection created in part by her? Let’s take a closer look. Continue Reading

MAC Cosmetics Kelly and Sharon Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne has become one of the most stylish power-players in recent times but it wasn’t too long ago she was making bad fashion choices and dying her hair bright blue. Sharon Osbourne has always been an eclectic lady and someone I’d always considered fierce. Together, they are a dynamic team and it doesn’t surprise me in the least that MAC Cosmetics would want to partner with them. I present to you their limited-edition colour collection.  Continue Reading

You can join me in keeping warm by winning one of the fabulous prizes on offer this month.

Margot Robbie Chocolate Hairstyle

I’ve loved Margot Robbie ever since she was just a bright-eyed new girl on Neighbours. She always had a classy look about her and now that she is a fully-fledged movie star we get to see her work the glamour she was made for. As a brunette Margot looks mature, mysterious and damn sexy. I love this look she recently wore on the red carpet. You can recreate her glamorous chocolate waves hairstyle with 4 simple products and this tutorial.  Continue Reading

Blake Lively Ryan Reynolds Cannes Film Festival 2014

In case you’ve missed the buzz elsewhere, Cannes is chock-full of beautiful celebrities attending the Cannes Film Festival. I’ve been watching all the images come through and everyone is looking gorgeous but there have been some standout looks so far. To be honest, I’ve mostly been stalking the images of Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds (holy moly, they’re a good looking couple!).

L’Oreal Paris have their bevy of leading ladies in attendance (including Blake) so we got the low-down on the best looks with the key products and the makeup artists’ expert tips.  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
