While perusing the JolieBox UK blog, we came across this awesome post on British pop duo AlunaGeorge’s Aluna Francis. Her gorgeous, easy-breezy look is exactly what we love for a night out or a downton weekend brunch—and of course JolieBox found out exactly how to score her style. Read on for the how-to breakdown.
She’s one half of the up-and-coming London-based pop-step duo AlunaGeorge, whose catchy new single—Your Drums, Your Love—has been playing at the JolieBox HQ on a loop. She’s also (yes) our latest girl crush. Watch the video, in which Francis coolly saunters through an Arran Gregory exhibit amidst popping and locking galore, and you’ll want to be her (best friend), too. While we can’t help you with the soulful voice, we can give you tips to master her edgy-yet-effortless style.
A little while ago while doing research for a story about easy ways to make your lifestyle more environmentally friendly, we came across a site we love: Practically Green (@practicallygrn). Dedicated to helping people take smart healthy actions in their daily lives, the site is a plethora of information—including lots about skin-care and cosmetics (follow them on Facebook, too). We asked the ladies of Practically Green, Rebecca, Sarah, and Kristen, to divulge their fave products and over the next few days, we’ll hear from each of them about what their individual recommendations are for lips, face, eyes, and body.
Kristen: I’ve started using Mad Hippie Eye Cream with 17 actives, which I know is meant to reduce wrinkles (and I don’t have them yet because I am still in college), but it feels so soothing and light on my skin. Given that my life is full of a lot of late nights and test cramming, I’ve got to have a way to get rid of puffy bags under my eyes, and this product definitely helps. Plus, I’m sure my skin will thank me later.
