Fashionista Friday – Rose Gold

I’m totally loving Rose Gold at present. It has all the glamour of yellow gold, but with a kiss of pink to add something special to metal.

Copper is a trending colour for home décor at present and I predict we will see a lot of rose gold in fashion for the coming spring and summer.

It’s pretty and sparkly with a soft glow, it’s perfect for relaxed summer barbeques and glamourous evenings out.

Men and Make-Up

Paul Henry asked on his show this morning about whether we think it’s OK for men to wear make-up, and I thought it was a great topic for me to weigh in on.

I pretty much grew up wearing make-up due to my competitive dancing, and as I got older make-up helped hide my acne, which was so bad that I took the strongest acne medication available at the time.

I’ve always worn make-up and always will. Not’s a rare occurrence for me to leave the house with no make-up on, and I generally have the full works.

The power of make-up is beyond measure. There are a tonne of amazing make-up tutorials on Youtube, and at 45 I’m still amazed at how incredible the transformation of before and after can be.

So, onto the topic of men and make-up and with my lifelong love affair with make-up it will come as no surprise that I’m fundamentally in favour of men wearing make-up but it has to be in keeping with their personal style, and application ability!

To be honest, most men I know would simply benefit from a trip to a beauty therapist for a brow tidy, and eyelash tint. These two things alone can make a world of difference. As for actual make-up for men, it totally depends on the personality of the wearer. Let’s face it Colin M-J can pull off a lot more make-up than most guys, but he has a flamboyant personality and it doesn’t look fake.

If I was dating a guy who wanted to wear make-up I’d mostly be fine with it, unless he started taking more time than me to get ready and looked better than me when we went out! 😉

After all who wants to put all that work into looking cute if the guy you’re dating ends up cuter than you!
