With Kristen Stewart of Kristen Stewart School of Make-up. This Spring look out for glossy lips, perfect shiny or bronzed skin, the ‘no make-up’ look, either soft pastels or some seriously smoky eyes, striking red lips or the brilliance of some other off-the-hook colour, and to finish it off, fine liner. For the perfect skin, with a very light looking see-through base, I recommend M.A.C Face and Body Foundation. This is a light foundation that has a buildable coverage and a flawless, natural satin-shine finish. We are falling back in love with eye products! So when prepping your face with amazing moisturisers and primers, do not forget to do this to your eyes, as this will help keep your eye make-up looking fresh and vibrant all day long. My absolute favourite mascara M.A.C Haute & Naughty Lash is a two-in-one mascara that lets you have either a very natural-looking lash or...

Paul Dean of Sergios provides some style tips for lads approaching their wedding day. Tying the knot? There are no excuses for grooms not to be looking sharp on their big day. The good news for guys is it doesn’t need to be difficult. Suit, shirt, tie and done … well, we could put a little more effort in than that. Regardless of how often you're going to wear the suit, I'd recommend the groom purchasing a suit for his big day – you'll own a garment that fits you perfectly and you will look and feel so much better. At the end of the day a wedding is a big spend for most couples, so you might as well come out of it with your own suit – it beats buying one down the track for someone else’s wedding! The groomsmen’s suits (generally hired) don’t have to match the groom's,...

Cityscape catches up with Brigit Blair on the 20th anniversary of Linden Leaves. How did you get into the natural beauty business? I began in a very small way, focussed on natural ingredients that could be used daily by 2 of my children who had the daily challenge of dealing with severely itchy, raw, inflamed, infected and sensitive skin. How would you describe the past 20 years with Linden Leaves? It has pretty much been my life and my passion, a time filled with gaining knowledge and insight and building a team of talented and dedicated people around me with some success. What are the requirements of your ingredients? Our skincare range is 100% natural and NATRUE certified, as I believe the facial skin is the most delicate and visual and the products are function-specific to give the utmost protection. Other general body care products in larger sizes range from 98.5%...
