Winter survival, beauty-wise, is a moisture-zapped nightmare. By the deepest days of July, your regular light moisturiser just doesn’t cut it anymore. So where do you turn when your circles are dark, your skin is sad, and your will is empty? We tried Ella Bache’s latest line of replenishing products.
This Australian made and owned beauty brand has one key difference to the huge amount of other brands out there: its fragrances are inspired by Australian botanicals, including native fruits, flowers and bush essences, hand-selected for their nourishing properties and familiar home-grown fragrance.
Kookai’s annual runway is an event we always look forward to over here at The Second Row, and this year was no different: A procession of pretty event wear and go-to casuals walked through the George Ballroom to herald the start of winter dressing. However, for us, it was the beauty that was to behold.
At VAMFF’s kick off last night at the Royal Exhibition Building, we saw the first round of style and beauty inspo to hit the runways since MSFW last year. We popped backstage for a sneak peek at the beauty trends (hint: it was all glitter) and we’ve summed up all the key trends for next season below.
VAMFF continues all week, you can buy tickets here.

I have to confess, I’ve never been into lip gloss. It always feels sticky, and tacky (in more ways than one…) But this lipstick lover may have just been converted after recently trying Luk Beautifood’s new range of completely natural lip colours made from food.
Yep, this is a product that you can lick off to your heart’s content – without being grossed out by that statistic that women consume 6 pounds of lippie in their lifetime.
