The Sexy Alternative to Red Lips

In Celebs, Lips, Models on January 13, 2011 at 6:00 am

When you’re not feeling so punchy as to wear a bright red lip, a broodier dark colour will do the trick.  MAC’s CremeSheen Lipstick in Hang-Up (RRP $35.00) is a smouldering, plum-red colour that blots to a nice matte plum with wear.  Be careful when wearing a deep lip colour to make that the sole focus of your look.  Heavy eyes and deep lips do not mix (see Cheryl Cole below).  Instead, rock the colour like Megs here, and be sexy day or night.

Megan Gale knows the beauty rules.

Don't do a Cheryl and over-do your tan, eyes and lips at once!

Model Moment: Miranda Kerr (pre – baby)

In Celebs, Evening, Events, Everyday, Models, Moroccan Oil on January 10, 2011 at 6:00 am

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have a son!  There is nothing more exciting than baby news, be it from your friends, family or a celeb in the LA stratosphere.  Sometimes, though, when the mother’s a supermodel and the father a Hollywood hunk, one can be forgiven for feeling a little green with envy.  Just imagine how cute the little chap would be!

But don’t be jealous; embrace Miranda’s beauty!  Here, we take a look at the best pre-baby birth glow Miranda was so known for…

Where it all started, a cover with Australian DOLLY magazine.
From day dot, she’s had that glow.  Miranda started her career after a friend entered her into the DOLLY magazine model search.  (Doesn’t it always happen like that, when they’re discovered? *cough Gemma Ward cough*) Read the rest of this entry »

Celebrity Crush: Jessica Biel

In Celebs, Colour, Hair, Preparation on January 7, 2011 at 6:00 am

Tomorrow my good friend, and Coveted Canvas guest writer, Kate Murphy will have her hair lightly balayaged and cut so that she will then look like a sex bomb (inevitable).  As a result, we’ve been trawling the net for images of the best balayaged hair out there, that Ms Murphy can take to the salon and be thorough with her colourist on what she wants (you all should take pics into the salon, to avoid hair disasters).  After hours of searches, the one who proved the best case for balayage (and tanning and exercise and sleeping eight hours and cleansing before resting and …) was Jessica Biel. The girl’s a babe.

Muse of the Moment: Dree Hemingway

In Celebs, Inspiration, Models on December 17, 2010 at 6:00 am

Dree Hemingway is a babe. Tall, slender and with the sartorial credit that makes you green with envy, she’s one to watch. My inspiration board is currently covered with photos of her natural makeup, perfectly-matched outfits and clean, healthy hair.  Plus she’s the great-granddaughter of writer Ernest Hemingway.  Could she be any cooler?

Get Her Look: CHARLOTTE | Sex and the City 2 – the Movie

In Benefit Cosmetics, Celebs, Colour, Complexion, Everyday, Face, Fashion, Glamour, Lips, Lipstick, Makeup, Movies, Relaxation on November 24, 2010 at 6:00 am

So we’ve moved through Carrie and Samantha‘s looks from the Sex and the City 2 movie and now it’s time to take a relaxed look at Charlotte.  Her look didn’t change so much from the series or the first movie.  All that really changed was a little bit of added pink, inspired from her two girls.


A little pink tinge to your beauty routine adds a touch of romanticism, exactly what Charlotte is all about.  If you’re not into putting it onto your face, try a slick of pink or cream on your nails.  I love Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Pink Slip (RRP $13.95) for its transparency.  It’s a lovely cream-based pink colour that would be perfect for a wedding or a garden party.

Get Her Look: SAMANTHA | Sex and the City 2 – the Movie

After yesterday’s post on how to get Carrie Bradshaw’s amazing Abu Dhabi look, I’m hoping you’re all feeling inspired to try out the power woman look that Samantha Jones rocks so well!



Sam’s look didn’t change a whole lot from the first Sex and the City movie to the second.  Her hair is longer and more free and she rocked a bit more of a red lip.  Power woman all the way.  I love the way Sam works and her ‘I’m right’ attitude.  She rocks the ‘I am woman, hear me roar’ feel.

Let’s first look at her lipstick  As I said, Sam’s rocking the red lip more in the second movie.  I like Face of Australia Lip Quench Lipstick (RRP $9.49) for its staying power.

Get Her Look: CARRIE | Sex and the City 2 – the Movie

In Blush, Bronzer, Celebs, Colour, Events, Everyday, Eyes, Face, Fashion, Fragrance, Fun Stuff, Gifts, How To, Lips, Lipstick, Makeup, Movies, Nails, Primer, SATC, Scent, SJP on November 22, 2010 at 6:00 am

Growing up, I would watch Sex and the City religiously.  Often out of the eyes of my parents, I’d watch Carrie date countless men, muse on her relationships and write about them in her column.  I’d admire Miranda’s work ethic and Samantha’s no-holds-barred attitude, and I’d love Charlotte’s determination for the picture perfect romance.  I learnt a lot from those four friends, be it that clashing prints work, that I want to be a writer, that friendship is one of the strongest bonds you will find in life or that romance – any and every type – is just fabulous.

SATC the TV series.

When the first movie came out, I was beyond thrilled.  I hated it in cinemas but loved it during the re-watch.  The second movie was cheesy, a full romp.  But the fashion was wonderful and the friendship stronger than ever.

SATC the Movie.

What I most loved in SATC2 was the makeup.  The girls had each changed just a little.  Samantha was rocking a powerful red lip, Miranda had a more relaxed attitude thanks to the fact she quit her job, Charlotte was mostly the same, save for a bit more pink (influenced by her girls?) and Carrie – with the biggest noticeable change – had a more tanned, bronzed makeup.

Throughout the week we’ll be showing you how how you can use their makeup progression for inspiration.  First, the star of the show, Carrie Bradshaw…

There’s a brand on the market taking the beauty editors by storm.  It’s called Rodial and it makes a bunch of celebrity-endorsed, instant-results products.  Myer has just won the rights to a few of their skin products, Glamoxy Snake Serum, Glamtox SPF 18 Active Daily Moisturiser and Glamtox Night.

Since launching in the UK in February this year, over 130,000 bottles of Glamoxy Snake Serum – the company’s golden ticket – have been purchased and over 10,000 online orders had been shipped to Aussie women, before it became available at Myer.
