Making Eyes: Maximise Your Mascara and Liner

Blue was a strong catwalk look so don't dismiss the power of navy as a great daytime alternative to black. You get all the definition of black but softer - great for the morning after, as blue really brightens the whites of your eyes, belying lack of sleep.

With or Without Make-Up, You're Gorgeous!

I often hear people talking about the fact that wearing make-up means you have no self-confidence. I have to say, I disagree with that. It can of course be said that some use cosmetics to cover themselves up to a degree. I know, because I used to do it.

Zoella Isn't Bad for Young Girls, But Branding Her Vacuous for Liking Make Up Is

Tilly Grove | Posted 10.02.2015 | UK Lifestyle

The obsession society has with scrutinising young women in the public eye for their ability to be role models is nothing new, and is perpetuated even by women who consider themselves feminists. Wanting women to be empowered and free is surely at direct odds with wanting them to conform to a host of standards that make them 'appropriate' for the consumption of others...

As part of my studies, I was keen to explore my ideal make-up colours with Clarins' House of Fraser make-up artist, Salema Uddin. And as we undertook a colour analysis prior to the make-up consultation,

A Brush With Death

Raccoons, badgers and squirrels- each year many millions of animals are trapped and brutally killed in the wild for their fur and hair. I will spare you the soul-eroding statistics of animal deaths on fur-farms and the fate which meets these animals even while still 'living', suffice to say they live in misery.

How I Deal With My Problem Skin

Amy Howerska

I was brought up by a woman who told me that all you needed was a bit of mascara. I later came to realise that anyone who grows up with a hot/low maintenance mother is ill-equipped for life as a female. Especially if, intermittently, throughout my non-airbrushed existence, your skin is having a post-punk rock revolution all of its own...

The F Word: Emma Watson and the Aftermath

Emma's set out the direction we need to head in, but in order to genuinely permeate our society's consciousness on the gender issue for good, we need to re-tune our media's frame of reference. Just think how many girls came to know of Emma's addressing the UN via an article dominated by images of her outfit...

So What Should Cancer Look Like?!

Charlotte Kitley | Posted 29.07.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Charlotte Kitley

'But you look so well!' It was a shocked response I have become used too. If the illness of a person is judged on their appearance, then I generally haven't fitted the criteria. It doesn't matter that I have incurable cancer, to many people, there is almost a sense of disappointment that I don't look like I'm on my death bed.

Is Makeup Our Hijab?

Are we truly to believe that the world's women can't be beautiful without resorting to a bit of slap? Our continued existence and propensity for procreation suggests otherwise.

Smoke and Mirrors - Cosmetic Industry Brand Language and the Reality of Animal Testing

Justine Jenkins | Posted 20.05.2014 | UK
Justine Jenkins

This is what a great number of cosmetic companies are actually saying both on their packaging and on their websites when you read a message stating: "not tested on animals", or "product not tested on animals" and even "cruelty free". It is difficult to believe, but I am afraid that I am the harbinger of bad news!

Responsible Beauty - Animal Testing in the Cosmetics Industry

Justine Jenkins | Posted 16.03.2014 | UK Lifestyle

I then uncovered the ugly truth about the beauty industry - animals are indeed still being tested on and going through extreme pain and cruelty - all for a new mascara or shampoo! What really angers me is that there's no need - we can undertake tests on reconstructed human skin, like EpiDerm, which is now widely available and produces better, more accurate results.

This morning I'm greeted with large swollen lumps on my cheek, pustules dotted across my jawline, and a painful third eye bulging out from my uni-brow - after surveying today's canvas I slumped back into the pillow. I'm nearing the end of my twenties, this was meant to end a decade ago!

Dirty Work

Why should women waste their precious time putting on mascara and foundation and shaving their legs? Who has that kind of excess time? Personally, my goal is to get to work as quickly as possible in the morning and to start applying myself to the tasks at hand. Note: I mean applying myself to my work, not applying make-up to myself.
