FAB BAG PICKS: Go Oriental
A touch of the orient to feel oh-so-sexy for that Saturday night date – be it dinner or dancing!
Remember early 1960s aka Audrey Hepburn – winged eyeliners – flicked just outside the upper lash towards the temple were quite the rage. So in New York Fashion Week Fall 2012, Anna Sui’s models sashayed on the ramp with wings – on their eyes! Make-up artist Pat McGrath used indigo blue theatrical paint (you can go with a blue liner or shadow) and a blunt liner brush. Draw lash line up to slightly above the crease into a “wing” shape! The idea: to inspire YOU to play around with colour and shape… Let the weekend be your stage! And if blue is not your colour, well who’s stopping you from going green, red or even violet?
A whiff of the Orient
I bought this one just for the bottle and have I fallen hook, line and sinker for the woodsy and oriental notes. Si Lolita is lovely blend of many notes – opening with a whiff of oriental-floral rhythms gently mixed in with spicy accords, bergamot, mandarin, pink pepper, sweet peas, elemi, patchouli, Tonka and amber. And the bottle is a work of art in itself – bohemian with just a touch of challenge – just what you need to add an aura of mystery for that special night!
