Too busy for a complicated skincare regime? Try the fab Super Line Preventor Xtreme, SLP-X, (£35 for 30ml, 0870 034 2566). It’s the sixth version of Prescriptives famous Line Preventor formula, and I have to say that whatever they’re putting in it, it just keeps getting better and better.
It comes in a pretty pink bottle and is designed for daily use under moisturizer. Secret ingredients are its super cocktail of antioxidants which neutralize the evil free radicals that accelerate the ageing process. At the same time, it contains collagen-boosters and hydrating and skin-smoothing agents.
I love it because you can apply it in on second flat and don’t need to wait for it to dry before slapping on some moisturizer.
Results? Frankly, my face stops sagging at around about midday and my makeup stays smooth rather than gravitating towards any wrinkles. Can’t be bad!
Written by Laura: There’s nothing worse than getting your groove on in a sweaty club; dancing like you own the place and feeling fantastic, only to go to the loos and find your eyes bleeding black trails down your face.
The messy look may work on the catwalk but on us mere mortals the effect is less than desirable. Worry no more – Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner comes in eight colours; all with a pleasant metallic smudginess.
I like ‘beaming black’ for an interesting take on classic smoky eyes for evening. Whether you favour feline flicks or something heavier, this stuff won’t budge no matter how many shapes you make on the dance floor.
The smoky eye is one of those iconic make-up looks, like bright red lips or platinum blonde tresses. The thing with iconic beauty styles is that they are often a little tricky to pull off. The up-keep and maintenance of white-blonde hair, making red lippy stay off your teeth, and applying smoky eye-makeup so you don’t look like you’ve just gone several rounds with Mike Tyson. Black-eyes ain’t pretty ladies.
My favourite piece of equipment for achieving a satisfactorily smoky eye is Prescriptives Softlining Pencil in Jet (£12.00). Not only is the colour a truly deep black but this fab eyeliner has the perfect balance of smudgyness and staying power. I like to layer the liner, applying a fine stroke close to my lash line before blending it with the sponge end of the pencil and then adding another fine layer over the top.
What I REALLY adore about this product though is that i can use it on the inner rim of my eyes and it’ll stay put.
