am a low-maintenance girl. My daily routine, especially since having kids, involves sprinting through the shower, throwing on whatever outfit suits my mood (and schedule) before hastily applying sunscreen, a touch of blush and mascara. That said, I’ve always been intrigued by the power of make-up. The boldest I usually dare to go is a bright lip or dark nails for a night out, though after reading my talented beauty editor Lameez Hendricks’ article in last month’s issue on how to choose make-up to suit your skin tone, I’ve had a beauty ‘aha’ moment. Who knew that switching the shade of my blush could instigate so many feelgood compliments? Feeling inspired, I dashed to Edgars Sandton yesterday

to buy a new lipstick (beauty editorrecommended, of course). I had only half an hour to spare before my next meeting but was immediately distracted by the fragrance section, where I liberally spritzed myself with my new favourite fragrance, Gucci Guilty. I then somehow found myself splurging on a bottle of Chanel’s vampy black Le Vernis nail lacquer and the new Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara – an essential for my make-up bag. Eventually I made it to my intended destination – the Bobbi Brown counter – where I met Alicia Schutte, the brand’s regional make-up artist in Gauteng. “Would you like a five-minute make-up touch-up?” she asked, as I was about to pay. Um, yes please! Before I knew it my face was cleansed, toned and
moisturised, with a serum and sunscreen applied. Next up was a complexionboosting BB cream, shimmery blush and my beautiful new crimson lipstick. I walked out looking, smelling and feeling fantastic, revitalised by a veritable Edgars beauty power shower and ready to carry on with my day. Try it for yourself and, as always, happy shopping.

LIP STAINS VS SATURATED LIP COLOUR
The runway A lip stain has a nonchalant matt finish that makes your lips look as if you’ve been sucking on a colourful ice-lolly. At the other end of the spectrum, perfectly rouged pouts take extra time, extra product and extra precision. The real way If you’re after a quick colour fix, consider a lip stain your saving grace. Using your ring finger, dab it onto the centre of your lips before blending the colour outwards. Your lips should appear merely pinched with colour – avoid an all-over saturated look. Perfect pouts, on the other hand, take a little more work. Create a line with a lip pencil before using a brush to apply lipstick, and then dab with a tissue. For high impact, repeat the process until the colour reaches the intensity you desire.

Lameez Hendricks, Club’s beauty editor says: “I’m a big fan of lipstick so I’m happy to make an effort for an ultra-glamourous result. Lately I can’t get enough of this season’s deep shades of berry.” Thami Kwazi, True Love’s beauty editor says: “I really like lip stains: they give your lips a more natural look which is perfect for daywear. Saturated colour is better suited to a more dramatic evening look.” Liza West, from iheartyouroutfit.com says: “A lip stain is ideal for me as I’ve never been brave enough to sport a bold lip colour. This look ensures that I have subtle colour, plus it’s quick and easy to apply.”

GRAPHIC LINES VS EFFORTLESS EYE MAKE-UP
66-MAIN BEAUTY Rating Winter Trends.indd 68
M·A·C Eye Pencil in Ebony, R170
The runway Understated or over-the-top: eye make-up presents what is arguably this season’s biggest contradiction. Some designers sent their models down the catwalk with bold, sooty eyeshadows and dramatic eyeliner while others sported nude, barely-there eye make-up. The real way Feeling feisty? Felineshaped eyes are a hot evening look. Using an eyeliner brush, apply a gel liner working inwards, starting from the outer corner of the eye where you want the flick to end. Complete the look with a soft eye pencil on your lower lash line. For a more subtle alternative, go nude with an eyeshadow that’s skin-like in colour. A lick of mascara will fan out your lashes for a soft and pretty finish.

Lameez says: “I find eye make-up tricky at the best of times so it’s a relief that the experts rate bare eyes as a key component of an overall polished look.” Thami says: “I’m partial to the graphic eye: it’s the ideal opportunity to try something different, and done correctly it can look very striking.” Liza says: “The dramatic feline flick is one of my favourite make-up looks but I often struggle to get it right. This season, I’m going to make sure I perfect the technique.”
