Hey ho!

Heya,

Long time no see! It’s hard to believe it’s almost winter… Hello dry skin! But… there is a solution!

IMAGE Skincare Ageless Hyaluronic Filler is a godsend for problem dry skin, giving a filler effect to the skin whilst creating the appearance of volume and smoothness throughout the neck and decolletage. Containing Hyaluronic Acid, which is known to be able to carry up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, the Hyaluronic Filler can help prevent excessive oil production, giving your skin the balance and moisture that it needs without adding more shine, making it suitable for the use on oily skin too.

Hyaluronic acid is something that our bodies naturally produce when we are younger, but as we age, production decreases. This makes it easier for sun damage to occur, as well as dryness and loss of collagen and elastin.

Application:

Apply the Pure Hyaluronic Filler to cleansed skin morning and evening and before applying  moisturiser.

IMAGE Skincare Ageles Hyaluronic Filler is available in selected IMAGE Skincare centres.

RRP: €29.50

Make-up Portfolio Update

Posted by: in Make-up   Tags:

Heya,

Long time to see!
Sorry for not posting too often… I’m extremely busy lately – loads of photo shoots, wedding trials, shows… I do hope to find more time for you guys soon! Thanks for sticking with me ;)

Anyways, today just a quick post with info about Make-up Portfolio massive update. You can see it HERE.

Sneak peek:

There are more and more companies catching on to the idea that not all women want to be sold completely unrealistic ideals of beauty. One such example, The Dublin Lingerie Company, hails from Dublin in Ireland, where they run an online store for real women. Their slogan ‘with every woman in mind’ sums up their belief that pretty and sensual lingerie should be for everyone. The DLC only stock specialist brands reflecting their ethos, and specialise in certain areas to make beautiful lingerie available to all women.

These are:

Plus size – it is a well known fact that 70% of girls/ladies are now more than a C cup, so the majority of the collection covers C cup upwards. As well as cups AAA to KK, you will find back sizes 28 to 58.

Mother and baby – there is a lot of helpful information on the site about choosing and using maternity and nursing bras, and why these are important to protect and preserve the shape of your breasts during and after pregnancy. Plus of course a wide range of maternity and nursing bras that look and feel great.

Sportswear – like maternity and nursing bras, using a good sports bra is a really important way to protect your breasts, and should be an essential part of your sports kit. The DLC stock some great ladies sports brands.

Mastectomy – nowadays there are some beautiful post operative and post surgery bras on the market and caring lingerie companies should be offering these.

Few weeks ago we have received beautiful BestForm Lingerie set in Mocha:

It’s soft and really comfy.

How to choose your bra?

Around 60/70% of ladies choose to wear a larger back size (for comfort) and a smaller cup size – this is completely bad advice as the looser back size forces the shoulders to take the strain – causing shoulder and back pain. In many cases ladies experience severe discomfort and often shoulder wounds.

Ladies need to be continually informed that the support MUST come from under the bust beit with an underwired or soft cup underband bra – they cannot leave the support to the straps – this is where the problems begin.

There are two key measurements you need to determine: your band size and cup size. All you need to do to find them is put on your best-fitting unpadded bra and stand in front of a mirror, holding a tape measure. Here you can find detailed guide.

So, summer is nearly here. Time to get some tan! Well… it won’t be so easy here, in Ireland… At the moment it is raining like crazy… The only solution? Self-tanners! I’m not a big fan of these products to be honest mainly because of the ugly smell. But I have found something that works pretty nice and does not smell so bad: Dove Summer Glow.

It’s available in two shades: “Fair to Medium” and “Medium to Dark”. You may also get one with soft shimmer. Dove Summer Glow contains the unique DeepCare Complex, with natural skin nutrients and rich essential oils to help gradually improve skin starting deep down.

Here is mine:

Dove recommends daily application for a beautiful, even summer glow all year round.

Before:

wingsofenvy-best-self-tanner-dove-summer-glow

After:

Pros:

– Easy to apply.
– The colour is very buildable.
– After 3 days of application it looked the best.
– Tan looks really natural yet noticeable.
– Skin looks healthy.
– It does not go streaky or patchy.
– The smell is pretty nice – there is no strong and nasty self-tanner smell almost at all.
– It’s moisturising (my skin is pretty dry). It’s not tacky.
– It doesn’t transfer onto clothes.
– Price: 4-6 euro.

Cons:

– Remember to apply it even around your elbows to (just in case) avoid orange tint.
– If you want to use it on your face, remember to blend it to your hairline and eyebrows.
– If your skin is oily or acne prone, do not use it on your face as it may cause you breakouts.
– Remember to wash your hands after – orange palms aren’t pretty.
– To avoid “white glove” effect you may want to use wet towel to remove excess.
