By Terry

I’ve had a long running love affair with Terry de Gunzburg also known as ‘The genius of make-up and guru of colour’ and the creator of Yves Saint Laurent’s original “Touche Eclat”, which most of you will already know or use. For me her label “By Terry” is head and shoulders above the rest – I can’t get enough of her products. Here are some of my favorites:

Hyaluronic Hydra primer boosts radiance and correction of all foundations.

Touche veloutée concealer, our new best friend for tired eyes and magical highlighting concealer.

Touch Expert Advanced banishes dark circles, smoothens wrinkles, imperfections and erases all signs of tiredness. Amazing!

Eclat de Teint disguises signs of tiredness and imperfections with a natural luminious finish. Lovely day or night with that little glow.

Rose de Rose Rouge, an all-over-face sheer liquid blush. Say goodbye to dull, tired looking skin. Instantly shapes and smoothes your cheek bones.

Or de Rose for Lips adds a plump, smooth and full appearence to the lips.

Baume de Rose for lips and nails – every handbag should have it!

Hyaluronic Hydra Powder…the perfect finish ! The only powder with hyaluron. Transparent, smoothing and moisturizing your skin. Even the dryest skin will love it. WOW WOW WOW

Leather VS Fur – Winter 2012/2013 Trends

Winter is coming and it’s getting colder, but with some creative ideas you can keep it warm and be stylish this season!

I have seen it on the runway as well as in the high street shops; leather and fur are the essentials for our winter wardrobe. They might seem dominant but we can make it look classy. Easy to wear, they will definitely keep you cosy and up to date.


On the Runway a full leather outfit at the Hermes, Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy fashion shows.

Although it creates an amazing silhouette, I prefer just a touch of leather much more. It still gives the similar effect of a bold look, but in a gentle way.



Calvin Klein and Celine are my choices!


Colored leather is also big this season. I recommend “Comptoir des Cotonniers” a French brand with some nice and affordable pieces. Just like the golden skirt, presented in a discreet and classy way.

Fur is another winter “must have item”. A lot of fashion designers presented them in a funky way.


Have a look at the Juicy Couture, Jean Paul Gaultier and Tom Ford ideas.



When it comes to everyday style, I tend to use fur as an accessory. A fur collar for example dresses your neck in a very sophisticated way.

You can find plenty of these for affordable prices on the high street. Topshop offers a range of colors in various shades.


Of course you don’t have to choose between leather and fur; you can combine these two and create a great up to date outfit! Look what Kate Moss came up with!!! I love it!

I can’t wait to share some more fashion news with you next week. Until then, have a fabulous weekend!

Au revoir!
