Oh you PRETTY THINGS

The party-sea­son pal­ettes turn­ing heads

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - BEAUTY BUZZ -

As func­tional as make-up is some­times we can’t help fall­ing in love with a new pur­chase sim­ply be­cause of its pret­ti­ness – this is par­tic­u­larly true as the party sea­son looms, bring­ing an ar­ray of pre­cious-look­ing pal­ettes. Take Char­lotte Til­bury’s new In­stant Eye Palette (bot­tom left, €75, brown­thomas.com). Her mother al­ways told her that ‘a lit­tle black dress will take you any­where, dar­ling’ and she has trans­lated the idea into a ver­sa­tile palette, with shades la­belled ‘day’, ‘desk’, ‘date’ and ‘disco’, like that of the Les Copains show. Givenchy’s Strik­ing Nights Palette (bot­tom right, €47, givenchy.com) is strictly for after-dark hours. Wash one shade over the en­tire lid or use the bronze or sil­very shade as a liner. Chante­caille imag­ined the light-bounc­ing ef­fect of se­quins – then re-cre­ated it in Les Pail­lettes (above, €79, har­rods.com), which con­tains rose gold and pink shades to buff over the en­tire skin or use as a high­lighter. Swap se­quins for sur­re­al­ism and you’ll end up at Nars’s lim­ited-edi­tion col­lec­tion in­spired by the work of artist Man Ray. Use The Veil Cheek Palette (right, €40, narscos­met­ics. com) to con­tour, blush and high­light to your heart’s con­tent, then leave it closed by the bath­room sink to be ad­mired by all who pass it. As cos­metic surgery and treat­ments get ever more ad­vanced and di­verse, which ones to have – and where to stop – be­comes more com­plex. Thank­fully, one of the world’s lead­ing der­ma­tol­o­gists, Dr Ste­fanie Wil­liams, ex­plains how to age grace­fully and beau­ti­fully in her new book, Look Great, Not Done!. From un­der­stand­ing your skin to life­style choices and pick­ing the right treat­ments for you, it’s packed with in­for­ma­tion. You know what they say: knowl­edge is power… (€12.99, Eudelo Pub­lish­ing).
