Beauty goes BRIGHT

Staying in on a Friday can be boring, Design Scene is always a good place to waste time looking at all things fashion.  Tonight I came across a shoot for July’s edition of Marie Claire China shot by Oscar Cecere and styled by Riccardo Linarello, the ‘Aquababy’ shot explores the new sport chic swimwear that is quickly becoming the trend of the season.  However it wasn’t the fashion that caught my eye, it was the amazing make up by Augusto Picerni; colourful, vibrant, contrasting and just really really unique and eye catching.  I especially love the idea of a colourful brow……

Halloween Inspiration

My absolute favourite ‘holiday’ is upon us, Halloween!!!!  Old Hallows Eve gets me all goose-pimply, not with horry but with excitment for the night ahead!  This year we have another party to go to and I for one cannot wait, fancy dress is only ever cool on Halloween; just look at the AW12 Marc Jacobs collection and you’llsoon be geared up for a night of bewitching***

No surprise then where my outfit inspiration has come from this year?  I’ve bought a wicked (in both senses) deep violet hat, similar to the colours seen in the Marc Jacobs AW12 colllection. 

Everything about the collection, from the pilgrim buckled shoes to the thick, scruffy knits topped off with the creepy velvet hats – screams Halloween!!  I will be paying special attention to the heavily applied kitsch make-up! 

Thank you Marc for making this years Halloween a fashionable one!
