CREATE ROSE-COLOURED HAIR

While on my trip to Bleach in London, I picked up some of their Rosé Super Cool Hair Colours for my freshly bleached hair. One huge perk of having light hair is that rainbow colouring doesn’t have to be such a commitment. Continue reading CREATE ROSE-COLOURED HAIR

WANT // PINK COAT

As you know, it’s all about pink for this spring. And the perfect transitional item from the gray, dreary days of winter to the cooler first days of Spring? A pink coat! First I saw Alexandra Golovanoff wearing one both in a video and in a streetstyle photo wearing one, and they’ve been cropping up all over fashion week, and finally, on the runway at Gucci. I want a pink coat! In the palest of pink blushes. Like, now.

Please.

TREND REPORT // PRETTY IN PINK

When I opened up the February issue of Vogue Paris, the “Rose d’Hiver” editorial (above) was the first one that struck me–baby pink can be a bit too girly for me–I veer towards black, white, blue and navy regularly (all neutral, I know)–but the contrast of the natural, clean hair and makeup with the cool baby pink looks fresh (less Malibu Barbie) for Spring.

All shades of blush and rose have found their way onto the runway and have infiltrated all the spring lines of makeup–whether with undertones of purple or apricot, flecks of gold and silver, shades range from the palest whispers of pink to the neon bright lipstick release from Chanel in La Diva.

Although we’ve been beaten by a few polar vortexes and the snow just won’t quit, we can mix in some pink for a breath of fresh air among the sea of black and navy.

Dior was influenced by Versailles for their Trianon collection, and have released a range of the girliest of pastels in limited edition packaging that evokes the beautiful patisseries that Marie Antoinette herself would have eaten at her country hideaway, the Trianon.

All of the items in MAC’s Fantasy of Flowers range are named after flowers, making up the prettiest bouquet of colours. With Diptyque’s Eau Rose body lotion, you will smell like the queen of the flowers.

Fabrics are wispy and diaphonous: Adam Lippes‘ slinky minimalist incarnation, and Lela Rose’s feather-light silk organza off-the-shoulder dress create the most feminine of looks.

AVEDA // WINTERBERRY LIP GLAZE

Labour Day has come and gone, Fall is back again, and with it comes the new lip shade of the season–Plum! Not the same Oxblood shades from last year–this red errs more on the purple end, but with enough warm tones to ensure that you don’t look like a zombie (take note to avoid cool purple tones).

Aveda’s new Heartlands collection contains a gloss in the shade of the season, Winterberry, with a foolproof way of wearing it–lip gloss! Gone are the matte lips from last season–tricky to apply precisely and without aging yourself 10 years. This “glaze” has a bit more to it than a gloss, almost like a liquid lipstick, but not as thick. Just pure colour.

If you’re the type of girl that is a bit nervous about following this trend, this lip glaze makes it easy to try it out. It’s more of a berry shade, infused with some purple tones and has beautiful shine–and no chunky sparkles to make it look juvenile. Just a sophisticated purple pout.
