A beauty look for dark skin: on the street in London

Bright blue eye makeup, the likes of which our imaginations would place on Cleopatra, can be all the makeup you need for a striking summer look. The makeup from Jean Pierre Braganza’s spring 2013 show at London fashion week was multiplied tenfold in its beautiful and exotic appeal when contrasted against dark skin, and translated surprisingly well when worn off-duty on the street.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
