How To:
Find The Perfect Foundation Shade

Like great buildings, great makeup begins with a solid foundation. So what’s the best way to ensure you’re using the right shade?

The right foundation should match your skin’s undertone. ‘Undertone’ refers to the colours under the surface of your skin and can be warm, cool and neutral.

Warm– think yellow, peachy, and golden.

Cool– think red, pink, and bluish.

Neutral– think olive or a mix of those above.

How to determine your undertone

Take a good look at the veins on your wrist for an easy way to determine your undertone. If your veins look green, it’s likely you have warm undertones; if they’re blue/purple, you have cool undertones. If the veins are colourless or match your skin colour, you most likely have neutral undertones.

How does your skin react to the sun?

First things first, always wear sunscreen. Nevertheless, how your skin reacts to UV can also be a big indicator to your undertone. Those who burn easily likely have cool undertones; those who tan without burning may have warm undertones.

I’ve discovered my undertone, now what?

Once you’ve discovered your undertone, finding your true match foundation shade will get a whole lot easier! Here’s a helpful guide to what to look for when foundation hunting:

Warm shades are often named beige, golden, tan, caramel, and chestnut.

Cool shades are often labelled porcelain, rose, sable, cocoa.

Neutral shades are often referred to as ivory, buff, nude, and praline.

How To
Three Easy Hairstyles To Try This Summer


Hot days, balmy nights… Sweating it out with heated styling tools? No thanks. Look chic all summer – sans tools - with these three easy styles.

Messy Top Knot Start by spraying on Stylista Bun Gel Spray, working it in to create volume and body. Gather your hair into a high pony. Loop the elastic twice, but on the last loop when pulling your hair through, only pull your hair through half way.

Take small sections of the left out ends, twist, wrap around your bun and secure with bobby pins. Continue to do this until all the ends have been secured.

Finish with Stylista Bun Gel Spray over the bun for extra hold and shine.

Loose Beach Waves Spray Stylista Beach Wave Mist on to wet hair, focusing on the middle to ends rather than roots. Part and separate your hair into two section, create two loose braids on each section.

Once dry, take out your braids, lightly separate with your fingers and spray your Stylista Beach Wave Mist, again focusing on the lengths of your hair. Finish off the look by scrunching your hair in an upwards motion.



The Effortless Chic Pony Start by spraying Stylista Big Hair Spray through your hair and brush through for volume with flexible hold. Brush hair back into a low pony and secure with a clear elastic.

Next, take a small section of your pony and loosely wrap around the elastic until you get to the end and fasten. Finish by teasing your pony with a thin toothed comb to give more texture.

Ambassadors

CURRENT OBSESSION
Duckie Thot joins the L’Oréal Paris Amabssador Family

Melbourne millennial turned fashion’s most wanted, Duckie Thot is the new global ambassador for L’Oréal Paris. She’s gained a huge social following for all the right reasons, proving that her ethos of self-love and hard work deliver success.

Five facts for the uninitiated:

1. Her parents were refugees
Now living in New York, Duckie is a real international superstar. Her parents moved to Australia from South Sudan to escape civil war and she’s fiercely proud of her South Sudanese heritage.

2. This is her moment, but it hasn’t always been easy
She’s catwalk queen and cover star now, but Duckie has often spoken out about the bullying and derisive comments she’s received online and from people within the industry.

3. Adversity made her fight harder for inclusivity
While other contestants on Australia’s Next Top Model had their own hairstylists, Duckie had to style her own cornrows in tears. She’s had to bring her own makeup to set before too. She wants the industry to make more of an effort to invest in different kinds of natural beauty.

4. That’s why she’s happy to partner with L’Oréal Paris
“I’m honoured to represent L’Oréal Paris, a brand that celebrates infinite ways to be beautiful. I’m looking forward to helping more girls love the beauty of their dark skin.”

5. All that self-belief is enough to uplift anyone
“In my mind, I’m going back in time and telling my young self: ‘Dream big, work hard and trust in yourself’”

We couldn’t agree more. Using her platform to inspire others to love themselves make her the perfect choice for our new muse.

Welcome to the family, Duckie!
