I’m always happy to give you a first look on new releases. Please excuse the blasphemy of me using your favourite Christmas song to talk about an eyeshadow palette… but isn’t it true. Every year, we wait for this one release: The Urban Decay Naked Palette. This year, it’s called “Naked Hoey” – and one look at the colours will tell you why: We’re in for warm, sweet colours this fall!
Camel. My all-time favourite colour. Here’s how to wear camel this fall. Coats. Outfits. And of course: bags.
Did you know that camel referred to coats and materials made from actual camel hair? And that people loved the golden hue so much, it gave away in the sun, that the expression camel quickly became an expression for the colour?
I grew up as a typical middle-class kid in a very rich neighbourhood. Looking back, I still think it‘s ridiculous that rich mothers would dress their sons in unbelievably expensive clothes they grew out of within the blink of an eye. And most importantly: the kids didn‘t care what was thrown onto their back. That surely changed when we entered our teens: the „snobs“ – as we called them – had a uniform. The boys wore Barbour jackets and Ralph Lauren Polos. The girls wore the same, with two additions: pearl earrings and a Longchamp Pliage. I hated that bag. It stood against everything my rebellious, Nirvana-obsessed self was believing in. It was an evil symbol if you will.
We hardly ever speak of budget matters when it comes to bags. Sure, every fashionista and design lover wants their fair share of a great quality bag, that makes a statement on its own. I count myself among the people who mostly invest in bags and wear fairly “normal” clothes with them. Not only because it’s not just about fashion and trends, but because it’s a form on investment for the future and there is actual money to be made with it. That’s not saying that I don’t love a trend piece from time to time – but to be frank. I’m not a rich girl. I need to be smart with my decision making when it comes to expensive luxury items.
Tired of Instagram makeup that makes pretty young girls look like they’ve fallen into a paint pot. Here is a minimal makeup kit, that makes for a tasteful face every day.
I don‘t know about you, but I‘m quite glad that the days of „Kardashian Contouring“ finally seem to come to an end. Makeup doesn‘t have to be complicated to be fun, as people like Violette_fr prove every day. We only need a small range of products to look fantastic, here‘s the proof.
The idea that you can’t mix black, white and brown is old and outdated. If you follow these simple rules, you’ll look fabulous in this colour combination for fall 2019. Here’s a step to step guide on how to pick the perfect items for your favourite minimal look of the season.
As fall is getting closer, we start to crave those comfy booties again. The season of fall 2019 sees an old friend come back stronger than ever: Snake booties. We picked the only models you really need to know.
When we purchase an expensive item there can be a feeling of guilt. What if you could get rid of that guilt because you know that you can re-sell your luxury bag without losing most of your money. Here are 5 tips on what to look for in a proper investment.
Eine wahre Wunderwaffe, die eine Skeptikerin in einen Fan der Marke verwandelte. Die Skin Illuminating Brightening Night Capsules (oh Gott, wie lang kann ein Produktname sein!?) sind eines der potentesten Seren, die es momentan auf dem Markt gibt.
Die kanadische Beauty-Company DECIEM wirbt mit der Tagline: The abnormal Beauty Company. Während sich die Billiglinie von DECIEM namens THE ORDINARY in England dank Präsenz in Blogs und auf Instagram großer Beliebtheit erfreut, ist sie hierzulande noch weitgehend unbekannt. Ob das so bleiben wird, ist vor allem eine wirtschaftliche Frage.
THE ORDINARY bombadiert seine Kunden mit Fachausdrücken und wissenschaftlicher Expertise. Für wahre Beauty-Freaks interessant, für alle anderen aber überfordernd. Die Produkte sind in der Regel sehr einfach aufgebaut und heißen wie ihre Inhaltsstoffe. Sie überzeugen sie mit überraschend niedrigem Preis. So steht es jedem offen, die Marke zu probieren. Das Hyaluronic Acid schneidet bei uns nur durchschnittlich ab.
