Story sub-heading

Who doesn’t love a beauty fable? A tale of skingenuity; a happy accident in a lab that results in a miracle potion or a simple, lightning-bulb moment captured in a jar. For cult face oil Olio Lusso, the script goes a little something like this...

A former model, fashion stylist, and quintessential New Yorker, Linda Rodin couldn’t find products that truly satisfied her skin so she began experimenting with essential oils. As her glow became her calling card, word soon whipped around the fashion industry and Linda found herself with a very willing sample set of guinea pigs among her celebrity, model, and makeup-artist friends. Success quietly snowballs.

Italian for ‘luxury oil’, today Olio Lusso is widely considered the product that fuelled the enduring face oil trend, now a skin care category in its own right. Based on the beauty benefits of 11 carefully-edited essential oils including anti-aging Argan, Evening Primrose, and Rosehip, Rodin’s signature blend sinks into skin without leaving an oil slick to deal with, delivers on the glow factor as a good oil should, and coaxes the complexion into a calm, controlled state (that’s the Jasmine, Neroli and Arnica Montana flower extract, BTW). Add a few drops into your

Nine years on, Linda still watches over every batch, and the photogenic golden elixir continues to light up the white space of beauty pages and the blogosphere. Olio Lusso remains the heroine of the tightly edited Rodin collection; the good oil now the baseline that runs through all Rodin products. And it’s (finally!) landed here in Australia. THE END. [Or rather, THE BEGINNING].

“Black eyeliner was everywhere,” Lou reports. “The difference this season is that it’s lived-in and edgier and you don’t have to be a super precise to master it.” YSL gave us the danger smudge, Chloé prettified thick black kohl, and Marni made it more than ok to go out in tonight’s eyeliner tomorrow. We love Alexander Wang’s waterlining revival, giving your casual salty-hair-and-denim vibe a cool new place to go. “It’s a bit 90s and imperfect,” says Lou. “The key to making imperfect eyes look right is to have clean, polished skin as your canvas. A messy eye doesn’t have to look a mess.”

EMBELLISH EVERYTHING

Ear chandeliers, yes! Headbands, yes please! AW17 is all about the accessories and more makeup has never been more. Anti-minimalists, throw an Alberta Ferretti party in a trio of eyeshadows, punch up pastels until they are Gucci power colours, exaggerate your eyelashes, and under no circumstance neglect nails because art, texture, glimmer, metals and stick-ons are BACK. The MECCA pro tip for making chaos cool? “Mixing textures and finishes—like a glitter eye, sheer blush and matte lip—will give your face dimension and balance your look,” Lou offers.
