It was a simple question.
What’s in it? I asked, innocently enough. “Oh well, there is no specific ingredient…
I nodded politely, sparing the poor girl what was really on my mind.
No specific ingredient? What!! Are you kidding me? Then how is it going to smooth, fill in, plump and diminish my lines and gulp.. wrinkles?

This is the first in an occasional series called Cinematic Beauty.
I’ll be taking a look at those women whose style, beauty and talent transcends time and place. Taking inspiration from both classic and new cinema. Their look, their talent, their style, their classic and timeless beauty.
This week, in keeping with the recently announced 2015 Oscar nominations, I want to shine a little light on the French actress, Marion Cotillard who as been nominated for her role in the film Two Days, One night. Directed by the Dardennes brothers from Belgium.

Can you rock a red lipstick? Should you?
While watching the 72nd Golden Globes I couldn’t help but notice the quintessential red lipstick making an appearance on a fewer of the older women at the awards. Now, red lipstick is one of those makeup statements that becomes tricky as you get older. Personally, I hate any makeup trend or makeup advice that dictates how we choose to look as we age, after all, you’ve got so far in life. Do what makes you happy right? Well, sort of.
Unfortunately as we age, our ‘makeup look’ can become dated, or the choice of colours that once looked amazing, just doesn’t seem to work any more. Last decades look begins to make us just look older than we actually are or naturally look.

Could 2015 be your year of AMAZING?
There is something renewing about the end of one year and the entry and welcoming of another and as the years changed hands, I had a thought and an idea that perhaps declaring 2015 The Year of Amazing would set the year off to a great start. A better year than the previous. One with more success, more happiness, more peace.

The Beauty Issue turns one.
I’ve been thinking for the last couple of weeks how I could celebrate the milestone of the first anniversary of THE BEAUTY ISSUE.
What could I do to mark the occasion in a memorable way that would mean something. At this time of year there are many gifts and giveaways on offer for people just like you.

Sun beds banned!!
This week the decision to ban commercial sun-beds was passed in 4 states of Australia and will become effective on December 31st. This seems like a LONG overdue ruling but a very welcome one in my opinion.
Why the ban?
Or why in a country like Australia with so much sun would there ever be the need for anyone to bother with sun beds.
