Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - BEAUTY -

I be­lieve in the mag­i­cal power of great hair, black eye­liner and red lips — see my photo, above.

This is my go-to look, day or night — be­cause life’s too short to save your pret­ti­est looks for a night out! It’s time to have fun with beauty, and that starts with get­ting your base cor­rect.

To cel­e­brate the re­launch of Lan­come’s best­selling Teint Idole Ul­tra Wear foun­da­tion, right, €41, there are now a mas­sive 40 shades avail­able. I dare you not to find one that suits your skin­tone per­fectly. In fact, you can log on to lan­come­, if you don’t be­lieve me.

At the re­launch, I learned how Lan­come found in­spir­ing women all over the world to rep­re­sent each shade, and yaaay! there is an Ir­ish girl in there, vi­o­lin­ist Cathy O’Neill, who mes­merised us with her skill and her lu­mi­nous skin!

When it comes to lip­stick, I love a strong lip, but hate the high­main­te­nance as­pect of it, so some­thing like Nars Vel­vet Matte Lip Pen­cil in Cruella, €26.50, stays put and feels great. My lat­est dis­cov­ery is Max Fac­tor Colour Elixir Univer­sal Lip Liner, right, €6.99, “a lip hack in a liner’’ as it’s called. It ba­si­cally keeps all your lip­stick in­tact, so there is no bleed­ing or feath­er­ing or smudg­ing, and best of all, the in­vis­i­ble for­mula is en­riched with lip con­di­tion­ers and mois­turis­ers, in­clud­ing jo­joba oil and Vi­ta­min E.
