THE BEAUTY IN­FLU­ENCER RED GROUP BEAUTY DI­REC­TOR EVE CAMERON SHARES SOME OF HER FAVOURITE THINGS…

Red - - Beauty News -

THIS MONTH I’VE BEEN…

… get­ting play­ful with Cray­ola Beauty’s mul­ti­task­ing Face Crayons, £9 – the me­tal­lic gold, sil­ver and bronze will serve you well from now into party sea­son; dis­cov­er­ing that the sludgy nail colour trend is rather flat­ter­ing (try Jes­sica Cus­tom Nail Colour in Toasted Pe­cans, £9.50, be­low); over­com­ing my foun­da­tion pho­bia with Max Fac­tor Ra­di­ant

Lift Foun­da­tion, £14.99, which is air-light and looks fresh all day.

BEAU­TI­FUL AND USE­FUL

How many times have you bought a make-up pal­ette only to find you don’t use most of the shades? Kevyn Au­coin Nude Pop Pal­ette, £46, Spacenk, is, how­ever, a good buy, with nudes, sparkles and pur­ples that will make most eye colours pop.

SCENT SWITCH UP

Like flip-flops with a faux-fur coat, my breezy orange blos­som-laden scent, Dip­tyque Eau des Sens, feels all wrong as the days get cooler. Red’s ex­ec­u­tive edi­tor, Sarah Tomczak, tells me she also es­chews her ar­ray of rosy flo­rals come au­tumn, re­turn­ing to Chanel’s sen­sual, spicy Coco. For my new-sea­son scent (and I urge you to try them, too), I’m torn be­tween cult Swedish brand Byredo’s Eleventh Hour, from £105 – a head-turn­ing mix of pep­per, figs, wood and rum – and the darkly sexy Fougère Pla­tine from Tom Ford, from £162. Equally cov­etable is Boss The Scent Pri­vate Ac­cord for Her, from £49. The bit­ter co­coa note in it makes it quite ad­dic­tive.

Treat­ment on trial:

Tixel WHAT IS IT? The lat­est skin-tight­en­ing, line-eras­ing cos­metic treat­ment for eyes, it in­volves a con­trolled burn to va­por­ise the top lay­ers of skin – which, the the­ory goes, then grow back look­ing fresher, plumped up and firmer due to the in­creased col­la­gen pro­duc­tion it stim­u­lates.

WHY I TRIED IT: Eye creams can only de­liver so much and I wasn’t up for surgery, so this seemed to be a mid­dle path. Could I look less lined and tired?

DID IT WORK? Re­sults were sub­tle but sat­is­fy­ing. Af­ter just two ses­sions (you need three on av­er­age, spaced six weeks apart) the skin un­der my eyes was firmer, my crow’s feet less ob­vi­ous and I thought my up­per lids were slightly lifted, too. There’s a few days’ down­time needed af­ter­wards, so book on a Fri­day and don’t plan on be­ing so­cia­ble.

WHO TO SEE: Aes­thetic oc­u­lar sur­geon Sab­rina Shah-de­sai at Per­fect Eyes. Prices from £550 per ses­sion.
