While we would love to take our time applying our makeup in the morning, getting ourselves ready to face the day at our leisure, sometimes we just need to get up and go. That’s why we were so happy to hear that Clarins are launching some new products that are seriously going to cut down on time. 

Their Easy Looks collection features two new duo products to enhance the eye area, perfect to keep with you if you're rushing out the door.

Eye-shadow palettes (six versions) – €43

Firstly, they are launching a selection of four-colour eye shadows with an integrated primer. Find the one you love among the six different collections, from the lightest palette to the darkest. The colour-combinations include: Fairytale Nude, showcasing natural neutrals; Rosewood, which includes shimmery shades of pink and dark brown; Flame, giving us vibrant oranges, and sunset tones; Brown Sugar, offering deep gold and bronzed browns; Jade, which incorporates matte and shimmery, earthy shades and Midnight, which includes hues of sparkling blue. 

The best part about these eye-shadows is that there’s no need to apply a base! These 2-in-1 eyeshadows have an integrated primer and promote perfect adhesion to the eyelids. For 12 hours, colour is even and instant, it won’t budge.

Brow2Go – €24

Because eyebrows are a major player in achieving expressive eye contours, Clarins have developed Brow Duo: the promise of perfect brows in just two steps. Available in 5 shades, it sculpts and creates full brows while setting and intensifying them. On one end, an applicator makes it possible to take up the innovative and long-wearing texture: a coloured powder that turns into a fresh, water-based gel as soon as it is applied. It’s like magic! 

On the other end, a brush which grooms brows with a tinted gel mascara with lasting results. In just two steps, Brow Duo enhances eyebrows for a more intense eye look!

Precision Eyeliner

Continue your eye make-up with Clarins 3-Dot Liner. Its unique three-pronged applicator makes it possible to fill in, dot by dot, the area between the lashes to naturally highlight the eyes and create fuller-looking lashes. A fun and easy way to apply eye make-up.

Add Volume

Continue with a hint of Supra Volume Mascara. It intensifies the eyes and adds volume and thickness to the lashes thanks to its cocktail of vegetal waxes of carnauba and cassie flower.

Joli Rouge Lacquers – €24

Apply one of the three new shades of Joli Rouge Lacquer. They include: Sandy Pink, Woodberry and Deep Red. This intense-colour lip balm delivers ultra-lacquer shine, smoothing comfort and high dose colour pigments. Thanks to organic marsh samphire extract and 70% hydrating oils, lips are smoothed and softened day after day.

Make-up Corrector Pen – €20

Big make-up goof? That happens… No need to panic, here is a way to fix anything, anytime. To make your life easier, Clarins imagined this Make-up Corrector Pen, a gentle make-up erasing brush you can use anywhere. Thanks to its precise felt tip, it removes unwanted traces of make-up from the eyes and the lips without touching the rest of the make-up on your face. It's enriched in jojoba oil which is known for its ability to nourish the skin without feeling oily.

Also, it comes with three refills for around 300 uses in total… which almost makes you want to make a mess on purpose!

Clarins Easy Looks autumn collection is available from selected Clarins stockists nationwide from August 31 and currently available on clarins.ie.



Makeup can give you that special finishing touch for any prom look, so you can stand out from the crowd. Whether you are going for a low-key or high-fashion look, you want to make sure your makeup is done to perfection.

Although it would be lovely to have a professional come and do your makeup for the big night, this is not an affordable luxury for most people. We've got a few quick tips and tricks to help you take charge and get prom ready in no time, no stress.

Dress to Impress

You've probably spent a lot of time finding your dream prom dress, so it's important to centre your makeup look on it. Your makeup and dress should always compliment one another, rather than compete for attention.

For example, if you were wearing prom dresses in bright colours with embellishments such as this gorgeous number from JJ's House, a complimentary makeup look would be matching red lipstick with light eye makeup.

A heavily made-up eye area would be too busy for this style of dress and completely overdo your overall look.

If you're wearing a plainer style of dress like this JJ's House velvet gown, you can combine sultry, smoky eyes with your red lipstick as it's a makeup look that compliments the material and these styles of prom dresses.

Mirrored Magnificence

It might not usually be a good idea to copy other people's work or ideas, but when it comes to makeup looks, it's practically a recommendation!

We often see celebrities or models made up in a way that we think will suit us too – prom can be the perfect place to try it out!

The key to making this look work can be summed up in one word: practice! If you leave it until prom day to try it out, chances are it will be a complete disaster – it might look like a mess or just not look as good as you thought it would.

Prom night is not the time to work this out.

If you want to mirror the look of your favourite celebrity, practice and preparation are the best ways for you to get there.

Testing 1, 2, 3

One of the biggest things most people forget to do is make sure their makeup looks good in pictures. This is something that again is best to practice and prepare before the big night.

Flash photography can wash out your skin and makeup, and can make you look pasty and startled! You would be shocked to know what the biggest culprit for this is: moisturiser – or more specifically, moisturiser with sunscreen in it.

The sunscreen reflects the flash, completely washes out your face and mismatches the tone from your body.

Make sure you plan ahead and check to make sure the face cream or foundation you use on prom night does not include sunscreen. If it's only a small amount, you can try and take photos to test how reflective it might be.



2018 has gifted us with some seriously eccentric beauty trends, we’ve had squiggly eyebrows, glitter tongues, teeth nails, pimple nails, corkscrew nails and coat hanger brows.

However, the year of weirdness isn't quite over, we think we’ve found the strangest craze yet: RAINBOW TEETH.

Yup, dental dye for your pearly whites. People are legit painting their teeth with dental dye to match their outfits.

Seems a bit like The Capitol from the Hunger Games:

We have GOT to see the rainbow trend in action. CHRŌM have released a range of 10 colours for fashion followers to try: light pink, a slightly darker pink, baby blue, a slightly darker blue, mint green, yellow, light gold, dark gold, silver, and copper.

Each pastel shade has its own sugary sweet name, from 'Candy Floss', ‘Sunshine’ to 'Fairy Dust'. Unforch, it’s not edible and doesn’t have a taste.

We reckon if it tasted like actual Candy Floss they’d get a lot more business from those of us with a sweet tooth.


A post shared by CHRŌM (@chromtoothpolish) on

The polish works in the same way as nail polish and stays on your teeth for up to 24 hours. The colour doesn't smudge while eating, and all you have to do to remove the polish is brush your teeth and it's gone.

It sounds pretty weird alright, but the creator David Silverstein claims that the trend is completely taking off.

In an interview with the New York Post, he commented "We see this becoming commonplace – everything from a club vibe to an everyday workplace fashion accent."

"Perhaps you go to work with one tooth that matches your nail polish or your hair colour."


A post shared by CHRŌM (@chromtoothpolish) on

He’s a creative man, that’s for sure.

Silverstein says the product's solvent is made from a grain alcohol base and that the pigments comply with the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act.

He declined to disclose CHRŌM's full ingredient list for proprietary reasons, but added that the tooth polish is 100% safe and formulated by dentists: “It doesn't stain your teeth, and it's not permanent."


A post shared by CHRŌM (@chromtoothpolish) on

A dentist with NYC Smile Design, Dr. Ramin Tabib, was interviewed about the product and stated that "I have no idea what's in this product and the safety long term. Seems like the company does not want to give the ingredients out and they are calling it proprietary.”

Hmm, potential shadiness there.

Silverstein also revealed that the brand is aiming to release a glittery version of the product soon.

It’s ideal for Halloween, but would you wear the product in your everyday life?

We say go for it, your colourful smile will be catching many an eye.

A Southampton based beauty studio has shared the dark side of the microbladed brows trend. 

The treatment has gained massive popularity in recent years, however, not all therapists are apparently equal in skill and talent. 

Moss Brows posted to their Facebook page last week, revealing some less-than perfect finished products from unknown therapists. 


A post shared by Laura Moss Brows (@moss_brows) on

'These poor ladies asked for the natural hair stroke effect but what they were left with was the complete opposite,' reads the post.

The brow specialists finish with a warning to 'do your research,' essential for anyone considering the treatment. 

The Facebook post has since gone viral, with thousands of reactions and shares. 

The images were originally shared by The Brow & Beauty Boutique, based in Hertfordshire. 

'However I am coming across lots of these images of real women who have had their eyebrows “microbladed” (butchered),' reads their post. 'This is happening up and down the country damaging trusting women’s faces! Causing permanent scaring!'

The boutique advises asking the following questions when looking for a microblade technician, and to look at previous work and reviews.

  • Are they qualified, insured and licensed by their local council? 
  • Are they using correct the sterile equipment?
  • Are they clean? 
  • Do they use correct numbing cream to meet standards? (Max strength 5%)


Just when you think you seen it all, from glitter tits to unicorn lashes…

Ladies, we have discovered a beauty trend that is probably going to be VERY popular for festivals this summer. 

Jewelled eyebrows are starting to appear on social media, and we kind of love them? 

The artists responsible for these bejewelled brows are the glitter geniuses at The Gypsy Shrine (the people behind glitter tits, FYI).

So basically, we don't all want to run around festivals with our tits and bums covered in sparkles, so The Gypsy Shrine came up with a slightly more wearable alternative. 

And so, bejewelled eyebrows were born! 

Jewel Brows Trend

Jenna Meek, who is the creative director of The Gypsy Shrine spoke with the gorgeous folks at Cosmopolitan about her latest creation:

"With The Gypsy Shrine HQ spending our days designing new jewels and covering our bodies head to toe in our products, we thought, where else can we put our jewels? Our brows! With the brow trend on fleek these days, we thought we had to impress and go bold." 

To get the look, the artists position Mix 'N' Match jewels and use eyelash glue to secure them. Simples. 

Will you give this look a go? 



A good set of full, shaped eyebrows can make all the difference, and these famous faces prove it.

Check out the difference a fine set of brows can make to someone. 

Leighton Meester

Blair Waldorf would certainly approve of this transformation. 


Hello, from the other side. 

Lauren Conrad

The early 00s were a dark tim for LC, clearly…

Victoria Beckham

Spice up your life with this brow transformation! 

Demi Lovato

Good woman Demi! We are loving her new big brows.

Miley Cyrus

Remember that time Miley beached her eyebrows? 

Jessica Alba

Jessica still manages to look beautiful, regardless of the brow. 

Drew Barrymore 

In fairness, Drew was killing in in the nineties with her skinny eyebrows. Glad that trend is over…

Gwen Stefani

Don't speak.

Never underestimate the power of eyebrows! 



In 2017 we've had squiggle brows, we've had feather brows, we've even had negative space brows, but the year isn't over yet.

Stepping in to pay homage to the holiday season is the now viral Christmas tree brows. 

Yep, you read that one correctly. 


A post shared by Jaime (@browsbyjaime) on

Christmas Tree brows have been trending on Instagram, and we're not sure what to think of it. 

If you have a 12 pubs of Christmas coming up and you reckon you're brave enough to rock it for silly season, its actually quite easy to achieve. 

Also known as Bauble Brows, all you need is brow gel, glitter, gems and star stickers. 


A post shared by ABC 7 Chicago (@abc7chicago) on

First, brush your brows into the distinctly spiky shape using the clear gel. If you're brow hairs arent long enough to achieve the look, you can add individual eye lashes to your brows to extend the branch shapes. 

Next up, add the gem stones to the end of each branch, before sticking a star sticker to the inner point of your eyebrow. 

Here are a few of our favourite Christmas tree brow looks to either lol at or be inspired by:

Kat Von D is changing the way we do our brows with the launch of not one, but three brand new products designed to let us get more creative with our beauty regimes.

While we often like to experiment with bold lipsticks and pigmented eyeshadows, our perfectly sculpted brows are the one part of our routine that remains unchanged, not matter what look we are going for.

After all, if it's not broken, don't fix it – right?

Well, yes and no.

Given the phenomenal success of Kat's beauty range to date, the new collection of brow pomades are sure to contain a bullet-proof formula – but it's the products 16 shades that really have people talking.

As well as offering an extensive variety of natural hair colours, the collection also includes a selection of rainbow colours including hot pink, deep red, and a vibrant yellow.

The Super Brow pigmented pomade will be released this spring alongside two other brow formulas, Brow Struck and Signature Brow.

The products are set to launch next spring, and while no exact date has been revealed, Kat has asked fans to keep an eye on Instagram for more updates.



Not only can a well-defined brow frame your face and highlight your best assets, but scientists now say the beauty trend could actually make you look younger.

A recent study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology analysed the portraits of 763 make-up-free women between the ages of 20 and 80 and found that contrast in facial features was far greater in younger participants.

This contrast was particularly obvious in areas around the mouth and eyebrows.

Researchers then created two versions of each photograph – each with a varying levels of contrast.

A number of volunteers were then asked to examine each image and choose the one face they believed to look younger.

Results showed that almost 80 per cent of the time, people said the high-contrast face appeared more youthful. 

And, while the study didn't involve any make-up, researchers believe beauty products can achieve the same effect.

Co-author Richard Russell told Time: “The way we manipulated features in the photos was very similar to what you'd do with make-up.”

“And I would be surprised if you couldn't get similar effects.”

“We know that lips get less red with age and eyebrows get lighter, for instance, and those are both things you could address with make-up, if you wanted.”

The power of the brow is real!



Just as we were coming to terms with feathered brows, this new trend has caught us by surprise.

Say hello to barbed wire brows, the new way to style your eyebrows.


Barbed wire brow

A post shared by @athenapaginton on

Makeup artist Athena Paginton first shared this trend on her Instagram page last month, and with nearly 8,000 likes, people seem to be on board with making their brows look like pieces of wire.

Saying that though, the look is pretty simple to achieve. All you need to do is put some clear gel on your fingers and twist a few sections of each brow in opposite directions.

Could come in handy the week before your eyebrow appointment when your brows are in total tatters…



There are always plenty of odd Instagram beauty trends doing the rounds online, and the latest involves a set of very bold brows. 

Feather eyebrows have taken the online beauty community by storm, with tonnes of posts in the hashtag showing off the daring look.


A post shared by Stella Sironen (@stella.s.makeup) on

The response has been very love-hate, with some hailing it as the ultimate festival eyebrow, and others hating on the face-framers entirely. 

Talented makeup artist Stella Sironen started the trend, after posting an up-close photo of her feathery brows to Instagram.

"So i'm starting this new brow trend please recreate it and wear it everyday, " she jokingly captioned her Instagram post.


A post shared by Kacy Wilkins (@artistrybykacy) on

The MUA gave full credit to her pal who accidentally stumbled upon the look while brushing her brows

The look has since spread all over the internet, with multiple MUAs recreating the feather brow. 


A post shared by colin (@colincade) on

While the look is pretty cool, unusual and artistic, it may have to be reserved for the uber-cool festival fashionistas, rather than being a day-to-day brow.

Kudos to these MUAs for their creativity.
