This week our Editrice, Sophia marked her return from a well-deserved vacay with a bold new beauty look.

Taking one of S/S13 major trends (blue lids) she’s ditched the black (for the moment) and is striding into the new season with a bright new beauty philosophy.

We had three minutes of beauty talk with Sophia, to find out what makes her tick.

This electric blue liner is… a departure from my usual black and brown liners – I’ve decided it’s going to be my new season beauty staple.

 My beauty icon is … Lee Radizwill (younger sister of Jackie Kennedy Onassis). A young muse for Warhol, party princess and sometime actor and author, Lee and her all-American regal looks have seen her age gracefully over the years.

 I can’t live without…
