We’re loving Alexa Chung ribbing top mua Lisa Eldridge in this fab video tutorial called “A Classic Case of Winter Face”!
"She makes some of our favorite mascara on the planet (even the packaging is fab!), has fashion-icon Alexa Chung star in her ad campaigns, and jet-sets around the globe like a true professional, so naturally we needed to know every little detail about the travel-habits of the gorgeous Nina Leykind, founder of cosmetics brand Eyeko (and all-around ‘cool girl’). Our verdict: better than we could have imagined.
City you call home?
How often do you travel?

How many countries have you visited?

Black Magic Mascara combined with Rock Out & Lash Out Mascara make for killer lashes.
Starting with Black Magic brush through from roots to tip allowing the helix brush to make full lash contact adding instant definition by lifting and separating lashes with just one coat. Add the rest of the colour on the wand to bottom lashes before going back into the tube to add another coat. Follow this with a third and final coat going vertical with our unique guitar-shaped wand in Rock Out & Lash Out to add a sooty flutter to upper lashes focusing on the outer lashes building in curl and allowing the unique thickening...
"This morning I went to the launch of Eyeko’s new ‘Sport Waterproof Liner’ and ‘Sport Waterproof Mascara’. The launch was held at Core Collective in Kensington – and involved fifteen of us testing the product’s durability whilst working out – hard.
Core Collective is a fitness space that offers pay as you go Spinning, TRX, and High Intensity Interval Training. We tried 20 minutes of each of the three classes – all wearing our Eyeko eyeliner and mascara.

We love meeting up with London’s top beauty eds especially when they let us loose on their brows.
