The Worst Makeover I Ever Had

Was at the Estee Lauder counter in the Liverpool branch of Boots a few years ago. I only really have myself to blame, I’d ignored a few of my own hard and fast rules about makeovers (namely the ones about ignoring advice from someone who has deliberately turned themselves tangerine, and – my bad – the one about women who willingly wear black lipliner in […]

Estee Lauder – Blue Dahlia Collection

Hold on to your hats people, for I have fallen in love with an eyeshadow.  And it’s BLUE … I was saying in one of my rambles on Zuneta recently that I much prefer the autumn/winter collections from the major cosmetic houses than the summer ones, and this a/w collection – the first widely available one from new Lauder creative director Tom Pecheux – is […]

I think Estee Lauder are doing really interesting and exciting things at the moment, and this collection confirms it. Let’s have a look at some swatches, I’ll start with the eyeshadows: There are four eyeshadows in this collection, Sand Shimmer, Ultra Violet, Aqua […]

Makeover: Mel

It Sunday Makeover time, and this week I was delighted to welcome along Mel: Mel’s a schoolteacher, and was looking for a simple and easy day time look that suits her colouring.  Mel actually owns a bit of very lovely makeup, but doesn’t use it very often, so I was hoping to show her how to get the most of some of the things she […]
