Created in 2015 by LA native Carina Chazanas, DedCool forms part of the eclectic group of new indie perfume brands that have disrupted how we experience and what we expect of fragrance. Leaving behind the generic and gender specific marketing of conventional fragrance houses, DedCool’s unisex, vegan, cruelty-free, and non-toxic (!) fragrances labeled “01” through “05,” allow the user create their own scent identity, with a ‘cool’ and natural blend of top, middle and bottom notes that gravitate towards intoxicating musky scents (think Juniper Berries, Pomelo, Saffron, Accord Cuir, Black Violet, Crystal Rose, Blonde Woods, Raspberry, Vetiver) and end with a delightful fresh and upbeat finish.
"I decided there should be no gender attached to fragrance, as I wanted to smell masculine and have a lover smell the same,” explains Chazanas about the mission of her brand.
DedCool’s beautiful minimalist bottles leave exterior marketing frills behind and focus instead on what is inside the bottle resulting in a collection that is superbly mature and will capture the imagination.
Why are Highlighters everywhere?
Simple. When people see glowing skin, they think of healthy skin. It looks youthful, it looks fresh, it looks modern and healthy. Everyone wants to look as naturally beautiful, as naturally glowing, as possible
How Do you Know Which One To Pick?
For an everyday highlight, girls with an ivory skin tone, should look for white and pink shades. If you have golden undertones, go for gold highlighters and for darker skin, more bronze tones. Kjaer Weis organic HighLighters are great- they come in a bunch of shades, and there is one for every skin tone.
How Best To Apply? The areas of the face which will really make you beam with glow are the peak of your forehead, the tip of your nose and on your cupid's bow. Those are the best areas because the natural sunlight hits your skin and make those areas shine. A little bit of highlighter to the centre of your eyelids also looks super pretty and makes the eyes look awake.
And last but not least. You need to invest in your skincare, especially focus on a great cleansing regime and moisturiser. If you have great skin to start with highlighter can be there just to make it even better!
