Fans of designer Michael Kors will be happy to hear he is launching a new beauty range to complement his fashion line, having already released his Very Hollywood scent with Estée Lauder. The new cosmetic range will comprise three distinct collections: Sexy, Sporty and Glam. Each includes key make-up pieces, a fragrance and sun and body products. It’s due to hit Macy’s State-side in August and key flagship stores globally will also be chosen for counter locations. Let’s hope Ireland is on that list! have been just a few options: either become an expert with brow powder or pencil and fill them in every day, or get semi-permanent make-up (a tattoo) to create fuller brows that last up to three years. Now there is a new treatment that might just appeal to women who don’t want to make the tattoo commitment. Embrowdery is a system for delivering long-lasting pigment into the upper layers of skin to create the illusion of eyebrow hairs.The technique uses fine strokes that penetrate into the skin for a natural hair-like finish and is suitable for those who have overplucked or lost their brows for any number of reasons. Results last 18-24 months; contact Up To My Eyes in Greystones (tel: 01 287 2781) or check out embrowdery.ie. At-home beauty devices are big news, and a new approach to tackling anti-ageing has appeared in Britain with the Tria Skin Rejuvenating Laser. The hand-held laser uses technology based on fractional light energy to smooth the skin’s texture, reduce lines and wrinkles, tackle discolouration and boost collagen production. The device doesn’t come cheap, at €530, but compared with professional laser treatment, it’s definitely the more affordable option. The laser isn’t stocked in Irish stores yet so for now find out more at triabeauty.co.uk.
