THINK­ING SAP­PHIRE, EMER­ALD, AMETHYST

Au­tumn rou­tinely brings around the smoky eye, but black liner can make the eyes look smaller. Try a dif­fer­ent ap­proach with jewel shades for a sim­i­lar im­pact. A pretty trend for this sea­son, and one Ch­eryl Fer­nan­dezVersini has been sport­ing weekly on the X Fac­tor, think sap­phire, emer­ald or amethyst. Choose ac­cord­ing to your eye shade an op­po­site jewel colour, per­haps amethyst with green, emer­ald with blue, and brown eyes can wear all three just like Ch­eryl. En­hance the depth of colour with a lit­tle black shadow, and choose a wa­ter­proof liner if you want to line the in­ner rim of the eyes.

THE THREE-IN-ONE

Ev­ery year Allure mag­a­zine has best in beauty awards, some 240 plus ac­co­lades for the top prod­ucts of the year. One cat­e­gory, the beauty break­throughs, cel­e­brates new tech­nol­ogy or per­for­mance and th­ese are the most prized awards. This year, a very de­serv­ing self tan has claimed one of the break­through awards, St. Tropez Ex­press Mousse, €46. The tan has the tech­nol­ogy to give three depths of colour. Wait to rinse away the tan ei­ther one, two or three hours and watch the tan de­velop from a sunkissed layer through to a deep, golden glow. How dark you go is up to you, but three op­tions from one mousse is great

AU NA­TUREL NAILS

It seems nail art is headed for the exit ac­cord­ing to the run­way shows for spring. Nude nails were ev­ery­where, with quite a few fin­ished with a matte top­coat. For this sea­son it’s hot to team a dra­matic lip with nails, berry is a popular choice but strong pink or orange is good too. Come spring though, we’ll all be look­ing to a nude. On my radar is In­genue from Michael Kors at Arnotts, €20. It’s mid­way be­tween pale pink and beige, nude but warm enough to look good with paler skin. Choose yours care­fully, a nude that matches your skin tone just looks creepy... The French adore fam­ily brand Yon-Ka, it’s one of the coun­try’s lead­ing spa ranges.
