While there’s moonlight and music and love and romance…*

For a fresh take on scent that will work whether you’re out for the evening, chilling at home or at the office, here’s a perfume for you to investigate.

Moonlight by Ariana Grande EDP is luminous and alluring like the moonlight. (Available here and at other good outlets.)

The scent opens with sparkling rich blackcurrant and juicy plum while the ultra-feminine heart of fluffy marshmallow and fresh peony add a captivating wink of intrigue and mystery. A final seductive touch of creamy sandalwood, black amber and sensual vanilla create an indulgent, lasting trail of addiction.

Features these notes:

Top – Rich black currant, juicy plum
Heart – Fluffy marshmallow and fresh peony
Drydown – Creamy sandalwood, black amber and sensual vanilla

* Inspired by this.

Themed Thursday – Out of the blue

Light up your eyes with a summer-hugging shade of turquoise and dive into the blue.

You could try Lancôme Le Métallique Brise Azure swept over lids; it’s the way to do aqua without going overboard.

Or wet an eyeliner brush, dip it into Dior’s 5 Couleurs palette in Electrify, and draw the thinnest line along your upper lashes. This is a high fidelity colours and effects palette that’s a lot of fun to use.

Finally, there’s Kiko Milano Cream Crush Lasting Colour Eyeshadow in 15 Pearly Turquoise, a highly blendable, long-lasting cream eyeshadow. The silky and soft texture goes on easily for bold eye make-up that stays on for up to 10 hours. The formula applies perfectly to the eyelids and feels weightless. The bright shades with velvety finishes add a touch of style to every look.

Eyeing up a new week

It might be hard to get out of bed and head into work on a sunny Monday, when the weekend has either left you tired and in need of rest, or full of energy and a zest for any kind of life except that which is based in an office!

Stick at the day job; it pays for fun! But get that focus back today with a coat of L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Excess Mascara – Black.

This has the Millioniser Brush: a multitude of bristles separate lashes for a fanned-out effect, and the Excess Wiper: in-built wiper system removes excess mascara, wiping brush free of clumps.

Your lashes will be perfect. Your Monday mood might take a bit more effort!
