Teen Idols we heart: Taylor Swift

From grunge to glamour;  glistening in full length Gucci at the Grammys to beanies and sweats with Harry Styles, what we adore most about Ms Swift is her trademark red lippy, which she seems to wear – no matter what the occassion – to pull together her look.

We’d say her morning make up routine is, erm… swift!

Get the look: Taylor uses Nars Matte Velvet lip pencil in ‘Dragon Girl’ but we love the more wearable Clinique Chubby Stick in ‘Two Ton Tomato’ for a moisturising day wear.

Teen Idols we heart: Molly Ringwald

She was an 80s Jayne Mansfield with her ice-cream-pink bucket hat and vintage car in ‘Pretty in Pink’ but our SM crush moment was when she did ‘the lipstick thing’ in Brat Pack uber movie ‘The Breakfast Club’

Now a Slick Mummy herself to Mathilda, Adele and Roman here’s hoping she still utilises that special talent; maybe to tear the top off a Frube or a cheese string…?

Get the look: rock the redhead vibe with Garnier Olia Intense Copper

Teen Idols we heart: Blair Waldorf

Whilst Gossip Girl might have finished with a fistbump to queen-of-the-romapthon Serena (and we do love her ‘just got out of bed’ hair’) our Slick Mummy icon was always, always Blair.

From the red lipgloss of the pilot to the perfect hostess skills at her many parties; from the entrapment of the prince to the low key wedding to badass Chuck Bass, we raise a gin martini to her style …

Get the beautiful headpiece look from Rosadior.

Five Little Miracles…

Whether the little ones have come down with the sniffles, or you’ve just got plain ole ‘knock em for six’ manflu, these should help to ease the pain and get us through Winter…
