Introducing Eve Lom!

Posted on 05/02/2012

Our latest skincare brand arrival, Eve Lom, began 25 years ago by one of the world's leading facialists. Years of knowledge and dealing with women's skin care concerns brought about the creation of many award winning products with natural based ingredients that bring the spa like atmosphere and results into your home. Eve Lom products are for a woman who appreciates luxury and highly effective skincare. 

Although the entire range is amazing, one of the products that has taken the world by storm is the Eve Lom Cleanser, a multi-purpose product that is the basis for the entire skincare regime. Vogue once described it as 'the best cleanser in the world' and we can understand why. Used in conjunction with the muslin cloth it cleanses, tones and exfoliates in one step! The cloth also enables the skin circulation process to begin which results in a perfectly balanced skin and radiant complexion.

 

For those lip balm junkies like me, you'll appreciate Eve Lom's Kiss Mix. No need to change your lip balm with the seasons as this is a year round product to keep lips moisturized and protected. It leaves a glossy finish behind while Zinc Oxide heals chapped lips and menthol cools the redness. 

 

Eve Lom's TLC Cream is the 'airbrush' of moisturizers. This intense and regenerating cream gives the skin some much needed tender, love and care with ingredients like Calendula Oil, Euphrasia Extract and healing Arnica Oil. Your skin becomes more supple and soft and you can say farewell to the deep fine lines.

Choosing The Right Lipstick For Your Skin Tone

Posted on 05/02/2012

 

Have you ever walked down the street and noticed a woman wearing a lipstick that just doesn't seem to work for her? Sometimes in those instances it can come down to the confidence or style of the woman wearing it or other times it can plain come down to skin tones. Yes,  just like foundations the lipstick you choose should compliment the color of your skin. A good rule of thumb when shopping for the perfect lip shade according to Jemma Kidd is to "test on the tip of your fingers. The skin there is very similar in colour and texture to that of your lips, so will give you a good idea as to what the color be."

 

 

If you want to get into the 'nitty gritty' of lipstick shopping I'll break it down for you. If you keep these rules in mind even the brightest or scariest shades can suit you: 

 

 

Porcelain to paler skin typically have a pink skin tone so will suit colors with a cool base. Scarlet reds, brownish pinks and soft apricots compliment this skin tone very well. Be fun and go with a classic red like Jemma Kidd's Ulimate Lipstick Duo in Scarlett.

 

 

Fair to olive skin tones more often that not have more of a yellow skin tone so will suit warmer based shades like nudes and pinks. The right shade can be tough to find these that don't have to much blue or orange in them like the Hi-Shine Hydrating Glosstick SPF 15 in Hibiscus.

 

 

But wait! As if to make things even more difficult, some people can have both pink and yellow skin tones which are then considered neutral and can wear both cool and warm based shades. Olive skin tones get to pull off my favorites and one of the season's biggest trends, orange. Try Kevyn Aucoin's Elegant Lip Gloss in Vizcaya.

 

 

For those dark exotic skin tones, deep warm shades of red, gold or espresso will look stunning. Stand out from the crowd with Jouer's Hydrating Lipstick in Phoebe, a shimmering bronzed wine.    

 

 

If you're still unsure what all this means, if you naturally gravitate to cool colors as these best suit you, you will have a pink tone. If the opposite is true and you favour wamer colors, you will have a warm, yellow tone. Class dismissed!

How To Create Big Hair With Serge Normant

Posted on 05/04/2012

Pump up the volume. Go big or go home. The big tease. Bigger is better. When the majority of us attempt to do 'big' hair it can end badly with knotted hair slightly resembling a rat's nest or being caught in a hurricane. It doesn't usually resemble this gorgeous head of hair we have below. Thanks to celebrity hair stylist Serge Normant (who created this voluminous style) the steps have been easily broken down and only a few styling products are needed.

 

 

 

Spray Meta Lush Volumizer from root to tips on wet hair.

 

 

Blow dry with a middle sized round brush, giving as much lift to the roots as possible.

 

 

Use a one inch barrel curling iron and begin curling hair section by section.

 

 

Pin each curl to the base of the head.

 

 

Once all done, use Meta Luxe Hair Spray (with a focus on the roots).

 

 

Let it set for a few minutes, unwrap, and brush through the curls. If hair looks too curly use the round brush again and soften with the blow dryer.

 

 

Tease the top where you want the volume to stay and overlap certain sections to give a looser feel to the overall look. 

 

 

If needed add Meta Revive Dry Shampoo to add texture, Meta Sheer Dry Oil Finishing

 Spray for Shine and Meta Luxe Hair Spray to secure.
