Get the OFFICE Look for Summer; Part 2

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Our second instalment from hair and make-up duo, the Technicolour twins, is here. This time, Danielle talks us through the steps to recreate our favourite make up look from the High Summer look book shoot; Sixties Siren.

Step 1
Prepping your skin before applying make-up is just as, if not more, important than the application itself. To do this, begin by exfoliating the skin using Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads. Then cleanse using a Hydrating Cleanser. Both of the products I use are by Radical.

Step 2

Apply BB (Beauty Balm) cream for radiant coverage and healthy, natural glow. There are lots of great BB creams available but my favourite is YSL’s Top Secrets BB Cream, complete with essential SPF20 protection.

Step 3

This look is all about the eyes. Apply a heavy line of black, kohl pencil eyeliner across the top of the eyelid following your lash line and finish with feline flicks from the outside corners. I recommend NARS Larger than Life Long-Wear pencil in colour ‘Via Veneto’, it won’t smudge or budge all day.

Using the same pencil, apply liner on the inside of the bottom lashes. Finish off the eyes with three coats of black mascara, my favourite is Larger than Life Lengthiness by NARS.

Step 4

Next, define your brows. Follow your natural brow shape using a shadow rather than a pencil as this is great for a fuller, more masculine brow. I recommend Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo.

Step 5

As the eyes are the focus for this look, it’s important to keep the lip looking subtle, soft and feminine. Finish the Sixties Siren by using a pale creamy lip colour. Try MAC lipstick in ‘Pure Zen’.

The Must Have This Winter

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012


Don’t shy away your sandals just because winter has arrived. In fact, they’re back as a fashion staple this season! Teaming socks with sandals such as the ‘Over the Top Wedge’ and other open toe heels, you can be at the centre of fashion this Christmas. Cute frills, fishnet, knee high or graphic prints are our favourite ways to pimp up our pins.

We like to wear ours with tailored shorts and a sheer blouse with an embellished collar or maybe even with a dark coloured circle cut skirt with a neon knit jumper and a chunky bejewelled necklace. Or quite simply with leggings and an oversized baggy jumper. All with the highest of statement heels of course.

How will you wear yours? Show us how you get on by tweeting us @officeShoes #OfficeMe.

Win a Summer Holiday – Miami by Camille

Blog Yourself a Summer Holiday with Office and Look

Well it’s high time we had a bit of a catch up on how our Summer Holiday Competition winner got on in Miami. So here goes, sit tight and allow the wonderfully charismatic Camille to transport you to a sunnier climate with her candid tales;
Surfing. Fantastically good fun, in the sea as on the net. Both ways, if you let yourself go completely, ride the wave with absolute freedom, you never know where you might end up. Tossed and buffeted every which way but loose… I love it, you never know where you might end up. Well, in my case, the wave took me to Miami. Woosh…There I am, my fingers expertly weaving me round the web, and next thing I know I am the winner of the most fabulous summer competition courtesy of Office, Look Magazine and Virgin Holidays.

Miami by Camille

Now I may as well tell you know, when it comes to travelling I am usually cursed. What am I saying, I AM cursed. This is no laughing matter. Family members generally refuse to travel on the same day/plane/train as me for fear of what may lie ahead. You name it, I’ve been through it. Unable to travel home for Christmas (Eurostar blocked in tunnel), stranded in JFK over new year’s eve (blizzard), stuck in Seville two days prior to finals (Volcano ashes – remember Eyjafjallajokull?)… Not this time though. I guess the cherry on the cake of this gorgeous prize was that there was not a single hitch. Not one (unless you count my being distraught at not having Will Smith as a welcome committee, melodiously rapping WELCOME TO MIAMI as I stepped off the plane). And when our driver dropped us off at the Mondrian, the coolest urban chic hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying at, I knew the boy and I would be having the time of our lives!

The hotel was in fact so cool that we were tempted to spend all six days lounging by the pool, sipping cocktails and soaking up the (very hot) sun. Set in a stunning all black and white minimalistic décor, and located in South Beach, the Mondrian fulfilled all the clichés of what life in Miami is all about: flashy, fun and fabulous. Highlight of the week? The in-house all-day pool party complete with thumping house beats and magic mojitos.

I could go on about the hotel and it’s daylight nightlife, but let’s move on to the main event: food. When in Rome etc.. Why bother even making the 8 hour trip if one does not plan to indulge in a giant burger or two. Not to mention oversized pancakes with maple syrup, frothy milkshakes, waffles and whipped cream, french fries and nachos. Although I’m very much a ‘full English’ kinda girl, South Beach’s 11th Street Diner’s authentic fare floored me (in a good way) and set me out to sashay out into the city in my new biker boots. And while I was embracing all things US of A, I also dug out the hot-pants. Potentially the shortest piece of sartorialism I own, and perfect for the job at hand. Giving off a casual-meets-urban cool Florida vibe that is, not eating as much as possible. Being open 24/7 meant that we did make regular pit stops to the Art Déco dining car; we did not however confine our culinary exploration to all-American fast-food. Indeed, another great find was Sushi Samba, a restaurant offering a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine and design. If you ever get a chance, you could also check out the News Café, a charming sidewalk coffee shop with complimentary newspapers and books available to browse while tucking-into your salmon bagel with cream cheese.

Miami by Camille

And at night? Pulsating house beats, intoxicating beverages, suggestive visuals… Miami’s latest super-club? Not quite. More like a pub crawl for art lovers. Once a month, dozens of Wynwood’s art galleries open their doors to the public for a festive ‘night walk’. If like us you are lucky enough to find yourselves in the city during one of these happenings I highly recommend you don’t give this one a miss. Street DJs keep the party going all night, and there is almost more colour-popping eye-candy on the exterior walls of the showrooms than there is on their (more conventional) interior ones. Fresh to death graffiti. My absolute fav … Ghetto, moi?

Office Staff Style – Sandal Picks

Since we have been having a bit of nice weather recently I thought I would take the time to ask a couple of our lovely ladies from head office to tell me what sandals they were after this SS12 and why.

Tassy Picks Havaiana top metallic flip flops

Jeni Picks Comfort Sandal Leathers

Narnia Plait Sandals

Tassy – Stock Control: Havaianas Top Metalic flip flop
‘Well I don’t really like to wear bright coloured sandals, but I do love to mix matte black and grey with hints of shiny silver. That’s why I will be wearing the Havaiana metallic flip flop in silver this season. They go with everything and are unbelievably comfy. The perfect summer sandal if you ask me.’

Jeni – Ladies Buying: Comfort Sandals Black Leather
‘I constantly change up my look so I need a sandal that will go with whatever I decide to wear this season. I really like the 90’s grunge style at the moment so the comfort sandal in black leather is perfect. The simple cross over strap detailing gives them a classic look that I will be able to transfer to loads of different styles.’

Amy – Ladies Allocator: Narnia Plait tan leather
‘I don’t really like sandals with bits in between my toes. I have been on the look out for the perfect ones for a while, so when I saw the Narnia Plait in tan leather I instantly knew they were the ones for me. I just think they are so summery and will go brilliantly with chinos and dresses. My number one choice.’
