Dolce & Gabbana’s Gorgeous “Mammas”: Get the Look with Drugstore Favourites

Season after season, the beauty looks at the Dolce & Gabbana shows never fail to disappoint. And while this season’s woman was still perpetually beautiful, elegant and sexy, this time she exuded a sense of something deeper. Backstage, images of iconic mothers covered the mood boards; Italian muse, Monica Belucci in full pregnancy bloom, Jackie O with her Kennedy brood and charming shots of bombshells, Sophia Loren and Jane Birkin with their children. This is the designer duo’s ultimate homage “la mamma.”

The Fab Five: Velvet Matte Lipsticks

Matte lipstick has never been an easy choice for me. The chalky textures and the quick drying, pasty formulas have me reaching for a cleansing wipe quicker than you can say, “pass the lip balm.” There’s always that fear that a lack of sheen will highlight every fault and unsightly line around the mouth. But I love bold, high-impact lip colours and to be honest these just pack more of a punch in matte formulas.
