R-PATZ’S DIOR DEAL
The rumoured €5.4m pay cheque Brad Pitt collected for his Chanel No. 5 commercials was certainly not to be sniffed at, considering the work amounted to two ads that are 30 seconds long at most. One wonders so what Robert Pattinson will be doing with Dior for him to earn €9.25m? The Twilight star has just inked a mega-deal to promote men’s fragrances for the brand over the next three years, but that is some payday even by Hollywood standards. R-Patz joins a heavyweight crew of celebs representing Dior — including Jude Law, Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman. And while there are no known figures for his on/off girlfriend Kristen Stewart’s earnings for her association with Balenciaga’s Florabotanica, it’s safe to say the Twilight pair could well be turning into a high-fashion power couple.
It is an easy rut to get stuck in: a colourway of shadows that are old reliables, those tans, browns or blacks that just look fine, no matter the occasion. But when did colours that flat really emphasise a sparkling blue, green or honey-tinged hazel eye? Try something new that costs next to nothing. At your local chemist find an inexpensive eye liner that absolutely matches your eye colour. Do your lids and mascara as normal but skip the shadow or liner you usually use along the lower lash line. Very gently apply a touch of the new matching shade here. It needn’t look obvious: even working it in between the lashes will make your natural eye colour stand out like never before!
THE ULTIMATE FACIAL
Two of Shiseido’s top facialists have jetted in from Japan to bring us the art of the world-class anti-ageing Yutaka Facial.
