The hottest news from the city's beauty counters
It’s all about eyes at Chanel counters (see our main picture). The Chanel Makeup Creative Studios have produced a collection that gives a new dimension to eyes.
It includes a mascara that gives a unique look and strengthens lashes from the first sweep and also gives fantastic volume.
La Palette Sourcils ensures eyebrow perfection. It is a palette of two colours and includes tweezers to define brows and a brow brush to groom them before applying the powder.
In the collection there are also new shades in Les 4 Ombres and Stylo Eyeshadows. Each one will create either bold, timeless or vibrant looks.
BOOST YOUR SKIN. BOOST YOUR LIFE
Clarins have launched three new turbo charged formulations offering beauty solutions in real time. Just add to your favourite face cream, foundation or mask one of these boosters and it will target your needs. For fatigued skins, suffering after late nights, a hectic lifestyle or long haul travel there’s Booster Energy, whilst for repairing weakened skin caused through sunburn, extreme climates and hard, salt or chlorinate water there’s Booster Repair. To revive, purify and plump the skin Booster Detox is ideal after partying, overindulgence and extreme pollution.
If you’re taking the first steps towards getting beach ready then why not invest in one of Clarins body care products. We like Tonic Body Polisher and the Treatment oil to help tone up whilst for firming and toning their Extra Firming Body Lotion and Body Cream are a must buy before heading to the beach.
LIPS THAT POP
Our own Leighton Denny has done it again. He’s come up with an ingenious way to stain, layer, tone it up or tone it down and wear your lip colour just the way you want it.
His clever Lip Dual shades come in ten fabulous colours with each cute bullet containing a long lasting stain at one end and a creamy rich, luxe lipstick at the other – a product that lasts all day and into the night. Purchase from www.LD-boutique.com
