AW14 makeup & beauty trend report

AW14 makeup trend report

Charlotte and I had so much fun writing this feature for local lifestyle magazine, Cambridge Edition. We often trawl through the re-purposed trends from the catwalk feeling a dull sense of déjà vu, but for this one we got together around mine to write the copy together, which is something we haven’t done in ages – usually bouncing ideas between What’sApp and Googledocs. Of course it doubles as a great excuse for our dogs to have a play as well. Toby is fast approaching his first birthday and it’s so sweet to see their little friendship growing and developing. Two dogs who couldn’t be more different, sharing moments 🙂

Be a trend-setter this summer

MAC Retro Matte collection – new launch!

As big fans of a matte lip, we were so excited to hear of MAC’s latest launch for AW13. The new Retro Matte formula includes eight Pro Longwear Lip Pencils and eight Lipsticks, plus we’ve heard that all 16 shades are going to be here to stay, so no fear (for now at least!) of falling for a limited edition colour only to have have the pain of it becoming discontinued. We were lucky enough to get our hands on one of their most striking shades in the collection; All Fired Up is a confident fuchsia red that is surprisingly easy to wear for its initial bold appearance, where I feel the matte finish offers a more grown up look to this cracking candy colour.
