Getting Playful with colours *Summer beckons* . Bobbi Brown, Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup, & Others Gets Our Thoughts! *Time To Update Our Looks Divas*

We check out the new products by the coolest brands out right now and glam ‘YOU’ up!

Bobbi Brown

The Neon’s & Nudes Collection from Bobbi Brown features a unique pairing of bright, neon colours that are balanced by soft nudes and neutrals. Pair soft, nude eyes with a neon lip or bright eyes with nude lips depending on your mood.

Eye shadows

Eye-popping shades are playful and stunning when paired with nude lips. I have tried out some of these shades on my clients and they are full of awesomeness. Get ‘you’ some of these yumminess and transform your look to cute, sexy and cool in a hot minute.

Tip: The most modern way to wear bright colours is as an accent on an otherwise neutral face. You can always switch things up, with nude shades that can be worn with bright lipsticks.

 Foundation - Mineral Makeup SPF 15

 Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15 by Bobbi Brown uses an innovative blend of mineral powders to provide a unique translucency, while counteracting dullness. The blend of soft and silky natural mineral powders instantly smooth’s texture and creates shine-free coverage without the weight. Upon application, this mineral makeup formula instantly diminishes the look of imperfections and uneven skin tone and texture. Say good-bye to an artificial sheen and say hello to a natural glow.

Tried and tested, they are totally stress free and makes your skin glow like you just came back from a relaxing holiday *wishes*.


Relatively new brand with a huge following! They have the most amazing colour ranges – loving their lip colours. They recently launched a Midnight Kisses lip duo range that rocks. Prepare your lips for the intimacy of night’s darkest hour with this intense duo. First apply the deep magenta pink of Lipstick in Welt, then layer with the cool candy pink of Sheer Lip-gloss in Rouse, to create lips that are begging to be kissed. Love this cool shade as well, for a nude lip look – Absorb (creamy biscuit nude). It gives lips a creative illusion and a very seductive glossy pout.

Now if you are on the lookout for cream blushers, Illamasqua is the place to go. They have a new collection of cream blushers that come in a variety of shades to tease, hypnotise highlight your cheekbones & shape your face.

Build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire. Use over foundation for impact, or under for a captivating glow. However you apply it, be daring.


A ‘lil’ short on the  pennies? Check out M.U.A, a discounted brand by Superdrug. Their lip glosses come in 4 juicy shades. And they all have very yummy scents.

So there you have it Divas, get the heads turning with these new intense shades and get playful with your makeup. And you can buy them all online.
