Camilla: August Favourites

You guys. It’s September. I can’t even. August was a really great beauty month for me – I rediscovered some old favourites, did a bit of shopping (as always…) and was given a lip balm that is so good, I fear it’s ruined me for life. Let’s get started, shall we?

La Dolce Vita Make-Up Tutorial

Regular readers will be familiar with our deep love for Charlotte Tilbury. My favourite look from her eponymous make-up collection is ‘La Dolce Vita’ and so I thought I would attempt to recreate the look for you using products available in South Africa.

I have chosen a variety of primers and products with long-wearing formulations to ensure that she stays looking fresh…

July Favourites: Camilla

Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme I have been using this product religiously over the past month and can officially confirm that it’s everything it’s cracked up to be. I love the coverage it gives – it goes on sheer and glowy, yet it still manages to cover mild blemishes and imperfections. I do have to conceal more noticeable spots with my trusty Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer, but I’m so well practiced that it only takes a matter of seconds (read: I have so many spots). As with other BB creams, the longevity isn’t the best, but I find that…
