Brow Arch March

So March is quickly disappearing, but it’s not too late to get involved…


Become an official Arch Angel by getting your eyebrows waxed and shaped, while supporting wonderful cancer charity Look Good Feel Better. This March, Benefit cosmetics have teamed up with Debenhams to offer the whole nation a chance to become Arch Angels for Brow Arch March. Benefit’s experienced beauty therapist promise to wax, tweeze, primp and de-fuzz brows with their specialist treatment (worth £11.50) for a suggested £5 donation.

The Benefit Cosmetics beauty team tackled my unsightly brows at the Debenhams Oxford Street store in London this week – Where (shock horror!) they took my brow wax virginity. Even though the brave Benefit beautician was very friendly and sweet, I felt a heavy wave of shame wash over me as I confessed to being a long-term plucker. (Apparently, one mistake with the tweezers and we could lose our brows forever).

Benefit Cosmetics will be offering the Brow Arch March treatment every year (our answer to Movember) in support of Look Good Feel Better campaign- The only international cancer support charity represented in 26 countries, which focuses on the visual side effects of cancer treatments.

Face Lace Embrace

Ever since I first laid eyes on Face Lace at the Liz Black AW14 show (below) during London Fashion Week, I’ve been fascinated by these beautifully bespoke make up designs.


There’s something quite sexy and mysterious about confident eyes peeping through lace. Combine that with Avant Garde style, and gorgeously ornate designs by Phyllis Cohen (designer and founder) and, voila! Face Lace is born. The range includes, eye and brow lace accessories, and designs range from floral, renaissance and hearts.

As a Face Lace virgin, and self confessed ‘girlie girl’, I was drawn to the delicate swirls of the Face Lace Frou Frou design (above).  My exquisite little sample arrived in lovey slick packaging along with a really handy step by step guide on how to apply the Face Lace (and precisely where around my eyes to place each piece).

The application took about 60 seconds, and I feel like I’ve reemerged from my dressing table as new ‘edgy Rach’.

Cohen designed the range with the aim to to enhance eyes in an instant, whenever we want to feel spectacular – But I swear, if I could wear these to work on Monday morning, I soooo would!

At first, I thought it might feel a bit weird, but they’re totally comfortable and didn’t budge until I took them off. My Frou Frous peeled away easily – without taking my makeup and brows off with them!

If you hadn’t guessed by now, I’ve fallen in love with these things. And, because Face Lace makeup art is reusable, I’m now trying to convince everyone I know with an upcoming birthday or hen do, that they should have a Mascaraed Ball… just so I can lace up my face!

Having tested the waters with the Frou Frou design, I can’t wait to try out one of the more extravagant Face Lace masks.
