Limited Edition YSL Touche Eclat Slogan Pens

I’ve always loved YSL Touche Eclat. It’s one of my all time favourite beauty products, and the reason I was so excited to welcome YSL back to SA! It’s one of those products, that when you know how to use it, you simply can’t live without it! And, if you haven’t discovered this cult beauty favourite yet, then you’re in luck, because the new Limited Edition 2016 Anniversary Pens are now in store! And they are cuter than cute!

YSL Touche Éclat Turns 21

YSL Touche Éclat Turns 21

Oh, how I love pretty things in pretty packaging… The iconic Touche Éclat turns 21 this year. To celebrate this milestone birthday, YSL are offering a couture-inspired, limited edition collectors item of Touche Éclat. This limited edition Touche Éclat is only available in shade #2, which was the first original shade for this product. The “standard” product now comes in six different shades, but the iconic #2 is where it all started. When I first used Touche Éclat about a year ago, I was using it as a concealer, but it is so much more than that! It’s a complete face brightener, and when used correctly, it works like a magic wand to illuminate your face. To learn how to use Touche Éclat, the way it was meant to be used, check out Beauty Guru Wayne Goss’ video tutorial. This collectors edition is available at YSL counters right now, and the price is the same as the ‘standard’ Touche Éclat (R475.00).

Beauty How To – GUESS Accessories Campaign

Beauty How To – GUESS Accessories Campaign

I am head-over-heels in love with the latest Guess Accessories campaign! The makeup is to-die-for and I can’t wait to try this look out, so I asked two of my favourite Durban based makeup artists, Candice Mac Nicol (@cands_mac) and Lisa Bailey (@LisaBaileyPout)  to give me their tips, tricks and product recommendations on how to get this glam old-Hollywood look! ON THE FACE Candice’s Tips Allow your natural skin and glow to shine through! The foundation is light and well-matched to the skin tone, allowing a natural glow. Using a wet cosmetic sponge, wet Beauty Blender or wet Stippling brush, apply a light to medium coverage liquid foundation on the face. Great products to use include MAC Face & Body or Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. Apply concealer only where needed (under eyes, around base of nose, any red areas). This type of look requires a natural skin tone and the final look shouldn’t be too heavy or matte. Great products to use include Bobbi Brown concealer, Clinique eye concealer or Smashbox HD concealer. If you’d like, apply a highlighting concealer under the eyes like YSL Touche Eclat. Use a flat, synthetic brush and your ring finger. Contour & Highlight using a matte…

Want your eye make up to last? Here’s how

Want your eye make up to last? Here’s how

Ever wondered how the “pro’s” get their makeup to last for what seems for ever? It’s actually not that difficult once you get the hang of it and I’ll show you how… For long lasting eye makeup you will need; A cream eye shadow in your favourite colour. I absolutely LOVE Estee Lauder Double Wear Cream Eye Shadow pots. They come in a variety of shades and are super long lasting. A MAC 239 brush, no compromises! This brush picks up eye shadow and lets you apply it like magic, with virtually no fall out. – Of course, it does happen from time to time, but when you get used to how much you need, its all a breeze from there. An eye shadow you love. At the moment I cant get enough of MAC’s Wonder Woman Pigment Pot in Bright Fuchsia. In general, pigment pots are the bomb, so stock up on these every opportunity you get. An eye brightening base like YSL Touche Eclat. My other favourites include Clarins Brightening Eye Base and Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener pen. MAC Fix+ spray, its magical and Ill tell you why… Ok, so lets get started. For fab eyes, start…
