AnOther Mag: Great Expectations

January 27th, 2011 / Posted by natasha

One thing that I love about working here at Blanche is the constant stream of inspiring and creative sites, ideas and information flowing between all of us. Today, it was an exclusive for AnOther Mag – these incredible interactive and animated photos that just make us go “wow”. And hey – London-based BMC makeup grad Janeen Witherspoon, currently represented by Julian Watson Agency, did the makeup! Seriously beautiful.

OK, these screencaps don’t do the photos justice at all so click HERE!!

Cosmetic Kitchen: Pineapple Toner For All

January 14th, 2011 / Posted by natasha

It’s time for another recipe straight from our Cosmetic Kitchen… a pineapple toner!  This refreshing toner is to be used twice a day after cleansing and before applying your moisturizer. I was kind of shocked that it only called for three ingredients, but Mama Simona assured me that this toner contains an active and powerful enzyme that softens, whitens, brightens, heals, fades acne scarring, and cleanses the skin by dissolving dead skin cells. Wow. Plus, it’s gentle enough for all skin types!

1 cup water
1 vitamin C tablet
1 tsp pure pineapple juice

I got my pineapple juice in its purest form… straight from Mr. Pineapple here. Smelled so good.

step one: boil the water
step two: dissolve the vitamin C tablet in water and let cool
(meanwhile, I cut up the pineapple and squeezed out the juice)
