Beauty News: From The August Issue

Fresh out of the August issue – check out what’s on IMAGE Editor-In-Chief and Beauty Director Melanie Morris‘ radar this August.


THE AFTERGLOW

Now that we’ve finally managed to lose the grey pallor, it’s time to keep summer complexions glowing. Sweep wide 3-shapes of contour and bronze around the face, and add dimension to eyes using powders in perfect hues and highlight by sweeping a C of product from the brow bone to high cheeks. Our favourites include the?Giorgio Armani Sunset Bronzing Palette, €75,?Inglot’s Signature Palette in Honey, €32, and Nars Highlighting and Bronzing Palette, €45. Perfect sundowner brushes for the job? The Dimension collection from Blank Canvas; 12-brush set, €79.99.

Giorgio Armani Sunset Bronzing Palette, €75

FOLLICE CHALLENGE

Fed up with lacklustre, over-bleached or generally tired hair? Working as a ?hair antibiotic?, Joico’s intensive three-step treatment penetrates damaged hair deep at the root of the cause. Each step involves product applied for five minutes, rinsed, and repeated, before having hair blow-dried to perfection. This in-salon service will completely renew damaged and withered hair to almost perfection (it works wonders – not miracles!) and adds a gorgeous touch of relaxation and rejuvenation to an already luxurious blow-dry. From SitStil, Drury Street, Dublin 2. Three-step revitalising treatment, €30; blow-dry, €35.

Elizabeth Arden?Around The World?Lip Scrub and Lip Protectant, €23?

WHERE IN THE WORLD

In transit? Stock up on Elizabeth Arden‘s limited edition Around The World with Eight Hour pieces: two little tins of Lip Scrub and Lip Protectant, €23 for both, and the hero Skin Protectant, €34. Take a tip from contour king Mario Dedivanovic and dab the Skin Protectant on orbital bones for a high- beam, glossy strobe a? la his client Kim Kardashian.

THE HIDEAWAY

With a suite of concealers for every facial misgiving, Benefit’s Boi-ing Collection of pastes offers airbrush effects, illumination, hydration and extra-strength formulations. Simply identify your concerns and cover up. Prices from €24.
