To BANG or not to BANG? That is the question on everyone’s lips this season. Well… it’s been on mine for a year now, ever since I’ve decided to be more adventurous HAIR wise. Now all I have to do is to just put this mind-decision into actual practice. We are talking BANGS HAIRSTYLES today, so don’t go out banging… your head against walls. If that’s what you thought I was talking about. Instead, let’s get chatty and serious about having BANGS. From blunt, full, wispy, to side-swept, retro, or curly — 2015 seems to be all about bangs. Would that have anything to do with the // READ MORE…

No, I did not just hit my head, nor am I writing this drunk. I’ve actually never been more serious, and sober for that matter. GREY HAIR is a thing these days, and GRANNY GLAM just became a massive hair trend in 2015. Whaaaaaaaaa?! Are we loving it ladies? Yes, we are. Why? First of all cause it looks fabulous and second of all, for everything it actually stands for. For decades fashion has been throwing beauty stereotypes our way all centred around the idea of youth, as if being young is a choice and there are tons of immortals and beautiful vampires out there // READ MORE…

The fact that it’s even a question we ask ourselves in 2015, is enough of a sign that YES, platinum blonde hair might just be the new thing this season. That, and also Kim Kardashian’s latest hair transformation. The girl just bleached her hair last week and went platinum blonde. If held the planet followed, I would’t be surprised. I wouldn’t though blame it all on Kim. Hello, Kanye. Anyway, leaving those two aside, I would very much dare say I myself had a lot to do with this new hair trend. Whaaaaaaa?! OK. Allow me now for the sake of, basically myself, to be // READ MORE…

Let’s set the record straight first: there is no such thing as the ultimate hair color, nor the best, nor the ‘one’ everyone should do, and personally I support hair experimenting more than anybody. Hell I’ve gone from super blonde to jet black, to red, and even green back in highschool. For me, as a girl who loves long hair (or is afraid to chop it off), experimenting with hair color is actually the furthest I go.   It’s the easiest way to have fun with looks. Yet, if the age or the affinity for pink, green, blue hair is way past you, then we’re // READ MORE…

It’s been two weeks since I’ve been dancing around this post and whether or not to do it, for two reasons: 1) I’ve already done so many lip posts here, here, and here, and 2) the world wide web is now packed with ‘How to get Kylie Jenner’s lips?‘. But since being redundant and slightly monkey-see-money-do has never stopped me from anything, I figured why the hell not join on this over-penciled BOLD LIPS obsession and 2014 fall trend. So here I am. Basically there are 2 things happening: (1) The BOLD LIPS Trend. The makeup trend is still going strong, if not stronger this cold // READ MORE…

If the 90’s marked you in a few ways, then clearly you too plucked the shit out of your eyebrows in the hope of channeling Gwen Stefani or Kate Moss, when in fact we looked like crap. Surprised all the time. Older. And not prettier. Little did we know then how wise and crystal clear our vision would turn a few years later. FACT: thick eyebrows make a face look younger. That’s just how plain silly simple this eyebrow business is. The less you pluck and the more natural in size and shape you keep them, chances are they’ll frame your face better than any stylist // READ MORE…

Unless you’ve been travelling to the moon, Mars, Jupiter and the likes for the past month or so, you’re familiar with the world’s obsession for Lupita Nyong’o and her ORANGE LIP makeup. Or her anything actually. This girl could make the worst thing look cool. Or I wonder, is it our obsession with celebrities that feeds this drive to adore someone to the point of deciding everything they do is trend worthy and emulate it till we drop? Cause you know, the orange lip trend was predicted, hell it emerged on the catwalk last season for Spring/Summer 2014, at most designers. The fashion gurus slash artists // READ MORE…

In case you haven’t got the memo, the fashion world is doing the 90’s thing, but what does that mean for the makeup & beauty trends? Are they following this grunge craze or what? Errrr… Dark lips are back in. Matte lipstick is massive for 2014 Spring & Summer. Blue eye-shadow (OMFG noooo!) is a total YES for 2014 SS. Or so they say. Slept in smoky eyes (well actually smudged eyeliner): IN. Full-on makeup sans le fake lashes making a comeback (think 90s supermodels). At this point it’s pretty safe to assume that (1) some 90’s makeup looks are back, and (2) in makeup, as // READ MORE…

Oh, I so had to do this post and go down this road: of le makeup and this week’s ubiquitous topic, Valentine’s Day with its much coveted looks and fashions. What do I know about makeup? Well, nothing actually (except my addiction to eyeliner & mascara), but I LOVE IT! I use foundation all throughout the cold months, sometimes eye-shadow (only in nudes and browns) and occasionally powder + blush with a failed attempt (most times) of contouring. Well, they do say practice makes perfect and hope dies last, so… yeah that’s my makeup mantra I guess. And in case I need to up my game I // READ MORE…
