Chanel Suprmarket

Video – Chanel Fall 2014 Backstage

Aah Karl – such a genius. Only he could create an entire Chanel SUPERMARKET (complete with aisles and aisles of divine double-C products) to showcase his latest Fall collection. This is a fabulous look at the show with an interview with Karl and commentary from the fash pack on how social media is changing the landscape of fashion shows. As always, Karl is ahead of the field and right on the money.

New Beauty Breakdown! Burberry Prorsum A/W 2014

So the Burberry woman doesn’t vary that much from season to season – she’s always polished, English, and quintessentially cool with the expert hands of makeup artist Wendy Rowe and fabulous hairdresser Neil Moodie tweaking her look, but always sticking with the brand DNA.

This season I particularly liked though, as it’s inspired by the Bloomsbury literary and artistic movement of last century, and this is the type of eye I think is perfect for the cooler months. It’s a gorgeous mix of aubergine and taupey-mauve that works not only for the likes of Burberry girls like Edie Campbell, Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse, but also makes the eye colour of mere mortals pop. The sheer coverage foundation and light enhancing luminsers makes even average civilian skins look good. Here’s the Burberry Beauty products Wendy Rowe used:

Face

  • Fresh Glow in Nude Radiance and Golden Radiance
  • Sheer concealer
  • Sheer Powder

Blush

  • Light Glow Blush in Earthy no 7

Eyes

  • Complete Eye Palette in Nude Blush
  • Effortless Kohl in Stone 03
  • Effortless Mascara in Midnight Black

Lips

  • Lip Cover in Tulip Pink No 27

Video: Cara Delevingne for YSL Babydoll Mascara

Cara Delevingne is my favourite model at the moment, and it seems I’m not alone. In just one short year she has bagged herself a Burberry contract as well as being the face of Burberry’s new fragrance, covers of British Vogue, I-d and Love magazine (where she looks divine in red lips, naked in the bath), and was considered to be the star model of the last catwalk season. And now she has also bagged a beauty campaign for YSL beauty, for their new Babydoll mascara. We definitely haven’t seen the last of Miss Delevingne.

Right Now: Burberry Complete Eye Palette In Mocha

OK it’s official. Burberry can do no wrong in my eyes. They have new eye quads that are, in a word, divine. Buttery soft, smooth and the colour combinations are just perfection.

It comes housed in a sleek gunmetal case which I am THRILLED to say, is lighter than the single eyeshadows I own. Because if I had one gripe with Burberry Beauty, it was the weight of their beautiful products. For the lady at home carrying a lippy and a blush they would be OK (still heavy, but just about manageable). But if you’re a makeup artist and you have a stack of those bad boys you want to carry, it’s just death. And then you have to choose which ones to take on a job. And then it’s MORE death because they’re all so lovely, and you can’t choose. And then you have to hack them up with a pallet knife which makes you want to stick the palette knife in your eye because it’s so sacrilegious to hack up those gorgeous Burberry eyeshadows to put in teeny plastic cases so you can carry them all. Can you tell I’ve been there? More than once?

So now the packaging feels lighter, and Burberry have given you not one, but FOUR lovely shades to choose from. I have Mocha, which is rich, yummy golden browns (you know, the browns that are surprising hard to find in other ranges? Yeah, those). There is a cream, a golden brown, a nutmeg/caramel colour and a rich brown that’s perfect for lining eyes. These babies can go natural and nothing, or very, very glamorous. What I love about the Burberry shadows is they are matte but they still have a sheen to them, so they don’t look flat on the eye.

The eye quads are called the Compete Eye Palette and come in 6 different shade variations, ranging from Plum Pink to Smokey Grey. I for one will be needing more of these new lightweight! Burberry goodies.

And here’s a video which has very little to do with Burberry, except it’s the Burberry model, Cara Delevigne, rollerskating in an elf hat. Shot by Angelo Pennetta for Love magazine, I thought it was super cute. And it’s Christmas, and who doesn’t love rollerskating elves at Christmas? Especially ones as pretty as Cara Delevigne.
