FIFTY SHADES OF ORA

The year has started well for pop star Rita Ora. She an­nounced in De­cem­ber that she has been con­firmed to play Mia Grey in the up­com­ing film of Fifty Shades Of Grey. Not only that, though, she has just been tipped for another role, that of cam­paign face for DKNY’s fra­grance range. The blonde Koso­van-born beauty was spot­ted film­ing a com­mer­cial around New York at Christ­mas, and al­though the deal is as yet un­con­firmed, the launch of her cam­paign is ru­moured to be slated for au­tumn of this year. She’s not the only fragrant star of the much-an­tic­i­pated film ei­ther; did you know male lead Jamie Dor­nan, from Belfast, was the face of CK Free in 2009? You might en­joy check­ing out those old im­ages in an­tic­i­pa­tion of his Chris­tian Grey, book fans!

WITCHY CHIC

Speak­ing of films and beauty, Dis­ney is team­ing up with top make-up brand MAC to cel­e­brate the launch of the film Sleep­ing Beauty. Cen­tred on the evil char­ac­ter Malef­i­cent, played by An­gelina Jolie, the new col­lec­tion will most likely be a lim­ited one, but what’s in store? Face, eye, lip and nail prod­ucts, ap­par­ently, and Malef­i­cent her­self sports a fetch­ing pur­ple eye shadow and pink lip — which ties in nicely with the Spring/Sum­mer trends!

THOSE FIRST FINE LINES

Have no fear once you start to see those first few tiny lines. It’s hard to judge when you should start us­ing anti-age­ing prod­ucts, but odds are that by your mid to late 20s you will spot some lines form­ing on your skin. Time to act! On your check­list for an anti-age­ing mois­turiser should be: cor­rec­tion, hy­dra­tion and pro­tec­tion. Try Clin­ique’s Superdefense Daily De­fense Mois­turiser, a cream that soothes and calms skin with caf­feine, nour­ishes with bar­ley and wheat germ, re­pairs the skin’s bar­rier func­tion and slows fur­ther age­ing with an­tiox­i­dants, along with a pro­tec­tive SPF 20; €52, avail­able from Clin­ique coun­ters na­tion­wide.

Has the Christ­mas pe­riod left your skin oilier, and prone to break­outs and shine? Those two weeks of cel­e­brat­ing the fes­tive sea­son can be a prob­lem for those who bat­tle ex­cess oil, but here’s a skin treat­ment that re­dresses the bal­ance. Used as a primer, or just alone on the skin, Ef­faclar K con­tains sal­i­cylic acid, retinol and LHA acid to smooth im­per­fec­tions and clear pores. Skin clar­ity and health will be re­stored! If you want to get se­ri­ous about re­vers­ing the signs of age­ing, then you need a skin treat­ment that is tar­geted to lines and wrin­kles. Neos­trata is a no-mess­ing about, re­sults-driven range that uses sev­eral dif­fer­ent acids in its prod­ucts, whether for en­larged pores, lines or re­ju­ve­na­tion. This ex­fo­li­at­ing mois­turiser tack­les lines, wrin­kles and skin tex­ture. Use sun­screen daily while treat­ing the skin.

Sk­inCeu­ti­cals of­fer spe­cific skin treat­ments that work har­mo­niously to cor­rect a skin com­plaint while of­fer­ing pro­tec­tion and fight­ing age signs. This Neu­tral­izer can be ap­plied twice daily to soothe signs of red­ness, even on the most sen­si­tive skin. It can be used for rosacea, af­ter cos­metic treat­ments and on skin prone to red­ness from the cold. Use un­der SPF mois­turiser dur­ing the day.
