And remember: ‘the best color in the whole world is the one that looks good, on you’!

Strong lips are an Autumn staple but this year traditional red lipstick takes a dark and romantic turn. Blood red, dark cherries and deep mulled wine are all ahead for lips this season but whatever shade you choose, make sure to keep it bold as the weather cools and nights draw in.

The Blank Canvas L29 Lip Definer Brush (around 7 euro) will help to give your lips the ultimate autumn look. Its firm round shape means it’s perfect for grabbing product and applying it with precision to define lips. The L29 Lip Definer Brush gives more control over lipstick application, makes lipstick easier to blend with lip liner and most importantly will ensure lipstick lasts long into the night.

How to apply lipstick (tips from Blank Canvas Creator and professional MUA, Úna Tynan):

1. The key to achieving perfect bold lips it to make sure lips are smooth and hydrated. Exfoliate lips first and apply a little balm to soften lips and help create a smooth finish

2. Apply lipliner over your lips to create a base for lipstick to cling to. This will also ensure more staying power for your lipstick.

3. Apply an even layer of lipstick using the Blank Canvas L29 over the entire lip, starting at one corner of the mouth and keeping within the natural lines of the lips. Line lips using the L29 brush and lipstick. Apply colour to the corners on both top and bottom lips. Fill in the bottom lip just outside the natural outline of the lips before pressing lips together to evenly distribute the colour.

4. Place a piece of tissue loosely over your lips and using a fluffy brush lightly dust over the lips with loose/pressed face powder, This will soak up excess product and help to set the stain.

5. For an intense, long-lasting pout, repeat the process once or twice to build up a strong colour.

Tired of shaving? Have you ever tried sugaring? No? You should! Sugaring works in a similar way to waxing – makes your hair grow thinner and thinner.

Sugar Strip Ease is made from special blend of sugar syrups and is 100% free from any chemicals or additives.  Product is completely water soluble – no need for ‘after waxing wipes’. The fabric strips are reusable – just clean them under warm water to get rid of any residue.

Sugar StripEase Kit contains:
- Sugar StripEase Natural Hair Remover Jar 250g;
– Strips, Reusable & Washable x15;
– Applicators x3 (2 large and 1 small);
– Instructions.

How to use:
Heat up the jar in microwave for 60 seconds (around 650 watt). Make sure it’s not too hot (test the product on your wrist). Apply the thin layer of sugar wax with wooden spatula. Immediately cover with a fabric strip. Pull back in the opposite direction of hair growth. And… you are done!

- simple to use;
– only 2 ingredients – no lemon juice (a common ingredient in sugaring that can be irritant on sensitive skin);
– honey-ish consistency – not as messy as wax;
– less painful than wax – sugar syrup sticks only to the hair and not to the skin;
– suitable for sensitive skin – can be used on every area of the body from face to legs, bikini-line to underarm;
– water soluble;
– pretty packaging;
– leaving silky smooth skin for around 2-3 weeks;
– price (around 14 euro);
– not tested on animals.

- none.

WingsOfEnvy Team had been invited to The Diet Coke by Jean Paul Gaultier Press Launch.

Have you ever wondered what really happens backstage at a fashion show? On the Diet Coke by Jean Paul Gaultier tour bus fashion fans can come get preened and pampered like super stars with a complimentary mini-manicure or bring out their wild side with nautical body art, both inspired by the limited edition Day & Night bottles designed by Diet Coke’s Creative Director Jean Paul Gaultier.

With a perfected look, people can take to the spotlight and strike a pose in the Diet Coke photo shoot area, getting a souvenir snapshot before taking five in the Diet Coke Lounge. Fans can enjoy sipping on the limited edition Diet Coke by Jean Paul Gaultier collection and there are 250 gorgeous goodie bags containing the limited edition bottles up for grabs!

The eight stop tour kicks off today in the Victoria Shopping Centre in Belfast on Friday 20th July before making its way round the country, finishing in Dun Laoghaire on the 11th August.

Here is a short video from the event. Hello from WingsOfEnvy girls at 0:30 :)


VOYA has created the ultimate treat for tired and dull skin. VOYA Stimulating Seaweed Body Buff is a full body medium strength exfoliation that utilises the powerful anti-oxidants of the VOYA’s certified organic wild hand-harvested mineral-rich Bladder Wrack, a true seaweed treatment for green goers.

VOYA Stimulating Seaweed Body Buff incorporates the buffing essentials of an exfoliant and oil to ensure spa goers enjoy an hour of absolute pure luxury. When VOYA’s raw organic elements of Bladder Wrack meets their pure seaweed oil, the two come together to create a scrub strong enough to provide a deep cleanse and buff that won’t have skin feeling the effects.

The internal and external benefits of this treatment are plentiful, increasing circulation and the lymphatic system, visibly impacting the appearance of cellulite, all the while still boasting the proven anti-ageing and anti-oxidant benefits VOYA is renowned for and most importantly removing dead skin cells from the body.

Have you tried it? What do you think about organic products?

Seaweed – The Facts

• Worldwide there are approximately 2,000 species of brown macroalgae (Phaecophyceae), 5,500 reds (Rhodophyceae), and 1,200 greens (Chlorophyceae), most of which are marine based.

• Seaweeds contain Algal polyphenols and Carotenoids which have been proven to be strong antioxidants, protecting against cell damage inflicted by oxygen-free radicals, a major cause of disease and aging.

• Seaweed is packed with vitamins B1, B2, and B12, plus polysaccharides and is moisturising, but oil-free. Seaweed is also a highly concentrated source of minerals and trace elements in their balanced state and supplies alginic acid, which elasticizes whatever it comes in contact with, including skin.

• Seawater is full of zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium, plus zillions of other trace minerals. And seaweed, which is fed by water itself, as opposed to roots, exponentially concentrates the whole cocktail.
