As a busy mother of five, Sonia Deasy needed a simple, effective skincare routine she could count on. And she wasn’t alone. While working alongside her husband, acclaimed international photographer Padraic Deasy, she saw firsthand how dry, dull and patchy his subjects’ skin looked up close. She knew there had to be a better solution. So she began to research one herself, working closely with her sister – who just so happened to hold a degree in biochemistry.View Post
This column talks about the variety of jobs in UK’s fashion and beauty industries. In Fashion and Beauty Interviews we try to show different angles of those glamorous industries. On one hand, Yukova interviews fashion designers. So that you can understand what stands behind each collection. For example, what inspired that collection, its main features and details of its development.
On the other hand, there are some great Q&A’s with top beauty professionals. Here you can read an interview with Smashbox makeup coach or Bumble and Bumble education manager. Also, there is a section about the backstage of the modelling industry. For those who want to learn more about this tough and competitive industry.
Jorie Grassie, an owner of a jewellery brand Jorie is a dedicated conservationist and nature lover. American-born Jorie has made her home in the Scotish Highlands for nearly two decades. Her collection is a contemporary interpretation of an ancient tradition. Each piece is handcrafted with fine stones, collection coloured diamonds and supreme golds. Each design has a unique identity expressing a feature of The Highlands or a person who is significant to Jorie. Deer tusk jewellery dates back 15,000 years ago to the Neolithic Age. Men and woman both wore Deer Tusk Jewellery identifying themselves as ‘skilled providers’. Later in the Victorian Era, Prince Albert expressed his love for the Scottish Highlands by commissioning many pieces of Deer Tusk Jewellery for his beloved Queen. Today I am sharing my conversation with Jorie Grassie about the concept and story behind the brand.View Post
Instagram is the birthplace of all sorts of weird trends, especially when it comes to the beauty space. In early April, makeup artist Stella Sironen announced she would be starting a new eyebrow shape that resembles a literal bird feather. A few days later, however, she clarified that she was joking about making the unique look an actual trend. At that point though, she decided to just run with it. Feather brows trend is how I found out about Stella Sironen, a makeup artist from Helsinki, Finland. She likes glitter, fine lines and anything in the colours of a rainbow. As you are aware, I love colours two. I quickly felt a connection with Stella and decided to interview her for my blog. Today she is telling you all about her career and, of course, all the truth about the newest beauty trend – feather eyebrows. Enjoy!View Post
