CHANEL Vision d’Asie: Lumière et Contraste Cruise 2019 Collection

“A woman is only as good as the light & peace she radiates” (Coco Chanel)

In her second homage that’s inspired by the interplay of light captured throughout her photographic journey of East Asia, CHANEL’s makeup director Lucia Pica has created a collection that can be summed up in two words: easy glamour. With Summer just around the corner, these are exactly the types of products I’m all about — fuss-free yet still put together, and in my opinion, no one does that better than CHANEL.

Urban Decay · Game of Thrones Collection

When Urban Decay first announced their collaboration with HBO’s Game of Thrones, my heart almost stopped: a beauty collection from one of my fave brands + my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE TV SERIES OF ALL TIME (yes, that deserved to be said in caps) = worlds colliding and in the best possible way.

The game is most definitely ON.

After all, why not have it all?

Sisley Paris · Phyto Twist Makeup & Hair Rituel

NARS · Holiday 2018 Collection

 

Bands have been steadily releasing their holiday offerings, and I have a selection from NARS to show you today. Of course, François Nars always manages to add his own unique stamp on things, and this year’s grouping is no different. Drawing inspiration from 70s iconic punk fashion (hence the safety pins & studs), the shades of the Holiday 2018 Collection are all surprisingly wearable and relevant … with a bit of irreverence peeking through via the names, naturally.
