New mascara and other black beauty stories

Black Mascara, latest lashes by Christian Dior

Those doll lashes just don’t come out of fashion. Every once in a while they pop up again. This time it is Dior. The brand’s Make-Up Director Peter Philips’ tip for creating this perfectly imperfect style: Five to six layers of Diorshow Pump’n’Volume Mascara plus a base like Diorshow Maximizer 3D.

Black nail polish by Gucci

How to bring black painted nails to an elegant level? The first step is GUCCI’s high-gloss formula nail polish. In terms of dressing: there is pink silk, or if you are looking for more practicality just think of a natural white tea-length cashmere dress, combined with loafers or heels. And then try to manage a time slot for applying 4 layers: base coat, two colored layers and a top coat. This manicure will then be quite sturdy (cracked black nails are the worst) and easily lasts up to 7 to 10 days, if you are not planning a spring-cleaning in between.

Color enhancing shampoo & conditioner

Whether you hair is color-treated or naturally black, a special shampoo like AVEDA’s Black Malva Shampoo & Conditioner enhances the shimmer and is the ideal quick fix for special occasions or a fresh-up until your next hairdresser appointment.
