Lust List: Edgars Red Square

Have you taken a leisurely stroll through a Red Square store recently? If not, I highly recommend that you do – there are so many fabulous new releases, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Usually it takes a while for international releases to trickle down to South Africa, but lately I have noticed that they are hitting the shelves a lot quicker, sometimes within a matter of 2-3 weeks, which is fantastic for us! Last night I wandered around a bit and chatted with all the ladies working behind the counters – they were all so lovely and were happy to…

What You Actually Need: The Top 10

Top 10 Basics

I often forget that not everyone has the same affinity for make-up that Jules and I have, and that for most people, the world of cosmetics is a daunting one. We recommend a lot of products on this blog, but the fact of the matter is, you don’t need them, strictly speaking. None of us need five mascaras or twelve foundations (*avoids eye contact*), but what we want them all the same. With that being said, there are certain products that are essential if you want to avoid looking like the crypt keeper – and so with that in mind,…

Flawless Face Series Part III: Concealer

Concealer Must-Haves

Concealer helps to even out your skin tone, cover blemishes and disguise dark circles. It comes in various forms – pens, creams, sticks – you will need to play around a little and see which formulation you like best.  I like to separate concealers into two categories: those for the under-eye area, and those for blemishes/the rest of the face. I always use two different concealers for these areas and I don’t like to interchange them. I like to use stick or a cream concealer for blemishes, and a light reflective concealer for under the eyes – the reason being…

So, I recently survived my 30th birthday (which wasn’t nearly as traumatic as I expected it to be) and I started thinking about all the beauty advice I’ve been given/read about/learnt first hand over the past three decades. With that in mind I decided to put together a piece outlining the 30 best tidbits in celebration of 30 years of beauty love! This is a long post, so maybe go make yourself a cup of tea and get settled in.

Travel Beauty: Essential Make-up Kit

By the time you read this, I will freezing my perfectly pedicured toes off in London while scouring the high street for beauty bargains. I thought you might like to see what make-up I’m taking with me that pretty much comprises all my favourite and most-used products at the moment. I plan to buy more stuff than I can carry when I’m there so I’ve probably packed far more than I really need but at least I know I have all my essentials in case of any beauty emergencies! Products: Skin Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Benefit High Beam Clinique Airbrush…

Camilla’s March Favourites: Exclusively Bobbi Brown

EXTRA SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm in Light to Medium For the past month I have been reaching for my Dr Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm Cream, and this. I have been leaning towards balms lately because my skin is still feeling so dry and I have been craving the hydration. This is billed as a lightweight foundation alternative for dry, dehydrated skin – bingo! The formulation is ultra-rich, so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this unless your skin is as parched as mine, as it might leave you looking a little bit greasy. This balm looks, feels and smells heavenly –…
