TopFour: Tomato Talons

13 Apr

Ever since the sun began peeking out, I’ve been noticing nails of such a shade that they draw your eye instantly and you can’t quite look away. It’s not quite red and it’s not really orange, and after much thought, I’ve decided to call it ‘Tomato’. It’s such a zingy, happy, undeniably summery shade that really does pop out at you. The important thing is to make sure you paint enough coats so that it’s solid, brash and in your face. Also, cover with a super shiny top coat for the ultimate in attention grabbing nails. Virtually guaranteed to cheer you up.

Edie-esque

6 Jun

I think Edie Sedgwick is one of the best beauty inspirations around. Her unique look can be imititated for both daytime and evening purposes. For day, it can be pared down with just a simple slick of lip colour, a smudge of eyeliner in the outer corners of the eyes and a coat of mascara. For the night time look, go the whole hog – flawless skin, intense dark eyes and pale baby pink lips.
