Sugary Beauty Tips

Sugary Beauty Tips

Dearbhla Keenan gives us her top beauty tips from Brown Sugar’s empire of expertise…

Last Beauty Purchase Kiehl’s Abyssine Eye Cream+, €47- this is a no frills product: creamy, yet light, fragrance-free and great for smoothing out fine lines, while keeping the eye area well moisturised all day.

Top Make-up Product Kohl Oil-Free Matte Foundation, €34, gives amazing coverage while still allowing your skin to breathe and glow. I use it on shoots, weddings and on myself every day, and it never lets me down.

Favourite Haircare Product? L?Oreal Tecni.Art Fresh Dust, €11.85, which is like a dry shampoo, but is much less powdery and gives hair a glossy finish, rather than a matte, chalky look.

Worst Beauty Mistake Applying foundation too soon after moisturising. You deprive your skin of the benefit of moisturiser and create a wet barrier on the skin, which foundation will slip right off of. Allow moisturiser to sink in for at least five minutes first.

Top Application Tip Use disposable lash wands in your mascara, and bend the applicator at the base of the brush. This allows you to bend your elbow close to your body, giving you a steady hand and a much less messy result.

Biggest Beauty Gripe The Scouse Brow or Essex Brow. The 3D brow trend seems to have lost its original objective of reversing the effects of over-plucking and regaining our youthful brow shape. Therapists are making women look like Groucho Marx not Cara Delevingne. Stop it already.
