Fashion in 5 with Anna Barr

Paris is home to the most chic women in the world, where beauty and make-up is a religion. Anna Barr runs Eclectic Society, spots fashion and beauty trends for and works as a freelance beauty editor in Paris- see why we couldn’t resist asking Anna a few questions……

(A few of Anna’s favourite things).

1. What’s on your wish list at the moment?

I already have a wish-list for Spring that includes a tiger ring by Manish Aurora S/S13 and all of the hounds-tooth pieces by Lie Sang Bong, Mary Katrantzou dress and round metal rim sunglasses from Mykita for Damir Doma. I would love another scarf by Marc Andersen too.

2. Describe your own personal make-up style?

Simple and sleek, starting with erborian BB creme with ginseng, Touche Eclat for imperfections and then a dust of Guerlain illuminating powder, Mac lip gloss in pale pink and bio-organic mascara by lavera.

 3. Which trends will you be working this season?

I have a collection of vintage pieces and love the 60’s mod look for Spring. Will pick up some shift dresses from Moschino and Marc Jacobs. Loving blue mascara and electric blue liquid eye-liner in a cats eye style at the moment.

4. Tell us about the product you just couldn’t live without and what you love about it?

Shu Uemura eyelash curlers, I’ve been buying them every other year for ten years and Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser.

5. Your favourite under-rated beauty brand?

Yves Rocher is an affordable, great make-up basic. I always start with them to test a trend.

Thanks so much Anna.x

    Ooh, I love posts like this. I tried a sample of Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer a while back, and I loved it yet never went to get the full size product. I’ll have to pay a visit to Sephora to re-visit this
