This week the ELLE beauty desk will be....

Meeting up with Terry Barber, head of make up artistry at MAC to talk about next seasons key make-up trends.

No doubt he will have a wonderfully poetic spin on the trends, as he finds words to describe looks like no other…”tea bagged stained eyes” anyone!


The tea bag eye look at Alberta Ferretti A/W09... You have to hand it to is the exact colour of tea bag stains!

Enjoying a pedicure courtesy of The Sanctuary, which is one of our favourite city spa destinations….polish colour still being debated but a cheery cherry red seems to be the front runner.

Attending a lecture by the CTPA (that’s Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association), about the myths and facts surrounding chemicals in skincare. They hope to debunk the myth that parabans are bad for you with scientific facts....our pens will be poised.

Testing out all the lovely new summer fragrances hitting our office and ear marking our favourites for the season. It’s looking like there is a huge trend for vintage florals as well as more masculine – inspired fresh scents!

Discussing who’s going to make it into parliament. The general election has got the beauty girls gripped.
