London Fashion Week: Emerging Trends

By Tindara It’s been a little while since I wrote anything for Get Lippie, and to get me back in the writing saddle, and so I could atone for this appalling neglect, our resident pro make-up artist Luke Stephens arranged a ticket for me to attend the London Fashion Week Synergy event: Emerging Trends. Luke was second in command to make-up supremo, Nicci Jackson and […]

Storage Week! How A Makeup Pro Does It …

Our final post of the Storage Week! series (which is actually going to ending up lasting a fortnight, we’re nice like that here at Get Lippie) shows you how a real, working, makeup artist stores their stuff.  we have to tell you, it’s not what we expected. Anyhoo, here’s Luke with the lowdown: As interested as I am in being very organised with stuff, and […]

Guerlain L’Homme Ideal

I have said this before of Guerlain, but they really don’t like to rush fragrances out. It’s been nigh on 6 years since they released a men’s fragrance. I may be overstepping the mark here, but I often feel Guerlain doesn’t get a fair slice of attention, and this really is a shame. Guerlain, despite having been around since the dawn of time it seems, […]

How to do: Foundation

By Luke Oh sweet mother of god there are a lot of base products out there aren’t there? Foundations, tinted moisturisers, BB creams, CC creams, and everything in between. What are they, and what is best for you? Where on earth do you start? Well there are a whole host of bases available, and all are good for different things, like, different times of year, […]

Colbert MD Skincare

By Luke Whenever a leading member in the field of dermatology brings out a skincare range, more often than not it’s a good one. This is good news, because no self respecting member of the strict regulatory bodies that govern this particular field of expertise (such as Dr Colbert), is going to put their name to something that is a) bad for your skin, and […]

Soap & Glory Sit Tight Super Intense 4-D

By Luke & Laurin Luke says: Soap & Glory always approach beauty with an excellent sense of humour, and frankly I’m sucked in by it. I know that there are people who don’t like their packaging talking to them, but I rather enjoy it if it’s done well. So, when you have a cream that is essentially about spending a little bit of time rubbing […]

How to do Concealer

By Luke Picture this: You’re sat round a dinner table and someone asks what it is that you do, so you tell them, and they immediately throw their hands over their face, and whimper “don’t look at me!!”. Does that happen to you? No? Well, to me it does. This is normally followed by a whole slew of questions, a beckoning of girlfriends, and that […]

A Lippie Team Post – Skincare Routines

We’re planning a number of these group posts, but we thought we’d start with the basics, so here’s how the whole team at Get Lippie looks after their skin: LOUISE (aka “Get Lippie”) My skincare routine has been kind of fixed for a while now – to the extent that one of the products is running out and I’m upset because current circumstances dictate that […]

Pleasure & Purpose With Aesop & Odette Toilette

By Luke I have been meaning for a long time to write about Aesop.  I remember Aesop from eons ago when the only place you could buy it was in Space.NK. It looked very smart and sort of clinical in its modest and understated medical grade brown glass jars and metal tubes. It was always a bit of a favourite – sceptical and unwilling as […]

Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Skincare

    By Luke It is with some irony that I write this with one mother of a hangover. Despite the warnings, I am partial to a glass or five of wine, and hang the consequences. So, imagine my delight when I read the press information for the new skincare range from super affordable (and rather excellent) skincare brand Caudalie on how damaging the effects […]

Zao Organic Makeup

If you are anything like me, the mere mention of words such as ‘organic’ and ‘natural’ where makeup is concerned will send your eyes rolling so far into the back of your head they may never return to their normal position. However, sceptical as I am, I recently tried out Zao Makeup following its Highly Commended accolade in the Natural Beauty Awards this year.  Fact […]

The Art of Male Makeup by David Horne and Mark Bowles

By Luke “The only way I’d be caught without makeup is if my radio fell in the bathtub while I was taking a bath and electrocuted me and I was in between makeup at home. I hope my husband would slap a little lipstick on me before he took me to the morgue.” – Dolly Parton.  Make up is a funny thing isn’t it? The […]
