UVA & UVB why bother?

Nivea have released a very cool little film about why you should wear sunscreen and what UVA & UVB rays actually do to your skin. They collaborated with artist Thomas Leveritt who did a video on this some months ago. The video uses an ultraviolet (UV) camera to demonstrate how sunscreen protects skin from UV rays, preventing sunburn. Check it out.

 

The secret’s out!

It’s here! Reknowded make up artist Charlotte Tilbury is launching her range next week at her own website, Selfridges and Net-a-porter. What awaits us? Luxurious art deco inspired packaging, formidable high quality formulas and online tutorials accompanying every single product. The whole idea is that anybody can apply make up and learn how to beautify themselves using Charlotte’s products and tips. I am a huge fan of Chatlotte’s work (Vogue, W, ID – you name it) and of her fab tutorials on net-a-porter and onnher own blog. Excited about this launch is an under statement, it is great to see a range mixing the best of the old world (vintage inspired packaging) mixed with the new world (tutorials).

Chanel has always got its finger on the pulse. Yet again they know what’s cool on the street and incorporate that in their couture offering. Beautiful tweeds and boucle were teamed up with manicured hands with neat glossed nails adorned by stacks of rings – just like the hipsters in Brooklyn like to do with Catbird rings.

Shimmer & Frosted

Dior showed us that shimmer and frost are not stuck in the 80’s but a firmly fresh and new approach to make up 2013. After all the matt matt matt frosty lips were the focus points.
