Defend skin with new mosituriser and eye cream by Clinique

Fancy giving skin a boost? This time of year, I don't know about you but my skin looks like it needs a holiday to recover from all that festive spirit. Dry, grey, fed up about the lack of daylight, this is when I find it important to use the right skincare products. Some of these problems can be put down to lack of hydration. So if you find that your skin feels tight or lines and wrinkles appear a little more noticeable, it could be that your moisturiser is not suitable or is not working hard enough.

Party Makeup with Bobbi Brown

Christmas time..mistletoe and wine...say hello to the most sociable time of the year with office parties, Christmas festivals and reunions. And as well as all the fun times catching up and, of course, Santa spotting, I get really excited about this time of year because it's also the opportunity for pushing the boat out with party makeup. To be honest, I think I would most likely look like an extra from Strictly Come Dancing if I had the time.

Because the balance between dialling up the glamour and slotting it in between work, families and the rest can be tricky. There are those lucky - and dexterous - enough to be able to do show-stopping looks in the blink of an eye; You Tube is always a great resource for those looking for videos on easy, how-to-do looks.

Aerin fragrances

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Aerin Lauder is one classy lady. The images which accompany her eponymous product range reflect this, giving a sense of the lady behind the AERIN products.
