Hair with soft waves, beautiful nude lipstick with gold finish, glowing skin…

Back in April I had the chance to go to Positano with Tom Ford for the launch of their new fragrance, Sole di Positano – a truly unforgettable trip, in a magical location (we stayed at the incredible Il San Pietro Hotel, a favourite of Mr. Ford himself), with an amazing group of people… Nothing like a work trip with some good friends to enjoy it with you! And I have to say, the Tom Ford team know how to spoil their guests…

As well as discovering the new Tom Ford fragrance, part of the Neroli Portofino family – aka the perfect holiday fragrance collection – we shot a special collaboration with Harrods celebrating the arrival of summer, that just went live on their new website and in store – can’t wait to go there and see myself on the plasma screens, so crazy!). Shooting “Endless Summer” was fun and involved, amongst other things, a boat trip around Positano with the girls (Cami Coutinho, Camila Carril, Nina Suess, Sarah Mikaela and Sandra Hagelstam) and great outfits – I fell in love with this gorgeous Joanna Ortiz ruffle dress, and the Lisa Marie Fernandez one is my ideal pool/beach attire: easy and cool. The final video is so dreamy! Make sure to check Harrods website to read our interviews talking about… Summer, what else!

  

And, of course, the beauty: I had my makeup done by lovely Lori Woodhouse, Tom Ford’s director of education, and hair by Amanda, from Bumble & Bumble, who did two of my favourite styles: soft waves to start with, then a casual updo with loose strands framing the face. For the makeup, Lori introduced me to a few products that I now treasure and can’t stop wearing, especially Eye Quad in Honeymoon (gold & pink shades, perfect for a more subtle smoky eye), lipsticks Moisturecore in Scandola and Lip Color Shine in Bare (great combo) and Sheer Highlighting Duo in Reflects Guilt (heavenly highlighter).

Have I mentioned that I’ve been a huge fan of Tom Ford makeup since day one (no joke!) and it makes me so happy to partner with them? The spring tutorial we did together is also super cool, I’ve shared it here.

Here’s a bit more from the trip, taken from my Instagram!

Big thanks to Tom Ford and Harrods for this experience! Hope to go back to Positano soon…

We had the best time (as always) filming this to talk about our very own MAC lipsticks – Alex’s launches on May 8th in the UK, make sure to run to buy it, such a pretty shade of pink that I’ve been wearing non stop! (Mine is out in August, Brazil only).

I shared this picture of Barbara Palvin on Dia de Beauté’s Instagram (follow here!) and got loads of comments asking for the lipstick shade. It is indeed SUCH a gorgeous colour and we had to make it the lipstick of the week!

The deep burgundy lipstick is the perfect accessory if you want to get that extra element of strength in your look, to add power and personality. I particularly love how Barbara wore it, with an almost bare face done by artist Patrick Ta – just perfected skin, enhanced brows and lashes and a touch of light on the inner corner of the eyes. It looks fresh and modern and is a style that works for day or night.

Although there’s no information anywhere as to which lipstick Patrick used on Barbara, I did some research on my personal collection and can recommend these below to get a similar effect.

  • Fashion Revival – MAC (here)
  • Poison – Dior (here)
  • Endangered Red – Nars (here)
. . .

After the boom of the weird lipstick, the new thing if you want to have super fashionable lips is to wear a metallic lipstick. Gold, silver, pink, blue… It’s basically an evolution of the weird lipstick trend, now with a chrome effect. Unicorn feelings!

Many brands seem to be aware of the movement and several launches hit the market in the past months. Below is the Dia de Beauté selection – do you have any favourites?

  • Magnetic Mauve – Lancôme (here)
  • Reign – Kylie Cosmetics (aqui)
  • Adora – Kat Von D (here)
  • Foiled Brat – Smashbox (here)
  • Gray Brown – Urban Decay (here)
  • On And On – MAC (here)
  • The Ultimatte – Milani (here)
  • Comets Tail – NYX (here)

I was beyond thrilled when Tom Ford, one of my all time favourite makeup brands, invited me to collaborate with them on a spring makeup tutorial for Harrods website. We filmed it last December and I’m so happy that it’s finally gone live!

The focus of the look is the pink eye shadow, one of this season’s key trends that can sometimes be a scary colour to wear – but fear not! I must say it’s one of my favourite ways to enhance the eyes in a subtle, feminine and non-obvious way, and totally worth trying.

The trick is to balance the pink with browns and enhance the lashes with black mascara. Also, make sure you concealed any redness present on the skin, especially around the nose.

I did a daytime look as well as a dialled up version for night, with brown pencil around the eyes and a touch of sparkle on the eyelids. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and below there’s a list of the products I used. Here is the full article on Harrods website.
