Winter is the perfect time to undo the damage and havoc wrecked by the sun during the summer. Below are a few tried and tested whitening skincare products from Japan and Korea, aka the motherland of all whitening wonders, that I love.
Earlier this month, Japanese beauty company Shiseido gave us a sneak peek of what to expect in 2020. “With the 2020 Olympic Games taking place in Tokyo, people from all over the world will flock to Japan and attention will once again be focused on the country’s unique tradition and culture. In addition, the athletic trend will become more mainstream,” says Shiseido Senior Hair & Makeup Artist Setsuko Suzuki (鈴木節子), who devised the following two makeup looks.
Say hello to Pantone’s 2015 Color Of The Year, Marsala, a naturally robust and earthy wine red that enriches our minds, bodies and souls. “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show brought us a bombshell look with its very own identity. Unlike previous years, the models rocked relatively understated eye makeup paired with a healthy flush and needless to say, the signature VS bed-head waves.
At the Chanel Pre-Fall 2015 Metiers d’art show in Saizburg, Austria, models showed us a gorgeous beauty look that is perfect for the Holidays. Creamy complexions were paired with flushed cheeks and a more dramatic version of the silver and gold eye at the Fall 2014 Couture show – a smoky charcoal lid with a touch of gold glitter on the lashline. The hair, which was equally beautiful, consisted of a half-up style decked with black silk ribbons and jeweled barrettes. Guess who will be rocking this look at the next party!
