Tried and tested

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Beauty - — Pam Ryan

JUDG­ING by the string of tin­sel and shiny tree or­na­ments, the hol­i­day sea­son is well and truly upon us, whether we like it or not. And what’s the best way to beat the win­ter blues? To sparkle, of course! I tried the new Ev­er­last­ing Glim­mer Veil liq­uid lip­stick from Kat Von D in the colour Satel­lite this week and I’m in love. The colour col­lec­tion ranges from the most wanted to the un­usual with a head­turn­ing fin­ish. And the for­mula is lon­glast­ing, sur­pris­ingly, even when kiss­ing. That said, it doesn’t stand up well against curry, so maybe give the Chi­nese a miss while you’re wear­ing this one. Avail­able in Deben­hams stores for €30.

BEAUTY BUL­LETIN BROW BEATER:

Nat­u­ral brows, bushy brows, feather brows — what’s the next trend? Light­ning brows of course! Make-up artist Zakia Wahbi shaped her brows into a bolt of light­ning, the Boy Who Lived style, and paired them with match­ing light­ning eye­liner to cre­ated an un­ex­pec­tantly wear­able look just in time for the Hal­loween sea­son.

SWATCH OUT:

I bet when the new Char­lotte Til­bury In­stant Eye pal­ette came out your so­cial feeds were filled with swatch pics from beauty blog­gers. In fact, they prob­a­bly still are. But make-up artist Me­nal Khan is swatch­ing in a whole new ar­tic way — she is recre­at­ing en­tire pal­ettes on the back of her hand. Check out more of her in­cred­i­ble work on In­sta­gram: @ikhaniic.

EAU de G&T:

Indie fra­grance brand Art de Par­fum has gone and turned ev­ery­one’s favourite tip­ple into the scent of the sea­son. Gin and Tonic Cologne mixes notes of lemon, grape­fruit peel, ju­niper berry, and cu­cum­ber to give that sharp cit­rus fresh­ness you would ex­pect from a cool G&T. Base notes of cedar­wood, ve­tiver and white musk, give an earthy ground to the fruity notes. And rest as­sured you won’t smell like you’ve been in the pub all day.
