Beauty + fashion finds that stand out!
This February, we’re letting ourselves be seduced by red: to add a bit of nuance to our winter wardrobe, or simply to pay homage to Valentine’s Day. Now’s the time to adopt the colour of passion with wild abandon, one final time before moving on to more serene colours in the spring. Here, we’ve got a rundown of chic beauty products and stylish sartorial finds boasting the romantic and sexy hue.
