I’ve always been a fan of bold lipsticks; I’d happily wear a deep crimson or rich magenta coupled with dewy skin and slick of mascara any day of the week. Obviously, when it comes to vivid shades, the more pigmented, the better; but these opaque, colour-saturated formulas often come at a price- dry, flaky, cracked lips.
The world of beauty can be a confusing place. Makeup and skincare products are laden with complex words that are meant to help us understand what we’re putting on our faces and bodies. But what do they all mean?
Few things have a more instantly transformative effect than blush. It hides pallid, “I’ve had three hours of sleep” skin and knocks years off tired faces while creating the illusion of killer cheekbones in a flash.
I love primer, I love makeup. Primer plus makeup? Well that’s a time-saving dream come true isn’t it? Multi-tasking products are wonderful; those little touches of technical magic just bring joy to my makeup-loving heart.
It might still be the height of summer, but beauty brands are already debuting their Fall/Winter makeup collections. To celebrate Peter Philips‘ first makeup collection with Dior, the Creative and Image Director called upon the artistic talents of film director, Pierre Debusschere to portray his new vision for the brand.
