Fresh out of the August issue – check out what’s on IMAGE Editor-In-Chief and Beauty Director Melanie Morris‘ radar this August.
Now that we’ve finally managed to lose the grey pallor, it’s time to keep summer complexions glowing. Sweep wide 3-shapes of contour and bronze around the face, and add dimension to eyes using powders in perfect hues and highlight by sweeping a C of product from the brow bone to high cheeks. Our favourites include the Giorgio Armani Sunset Bronzing Palette, €75, Inglot’s Signature Palette in Honey, €32, and Nars Highlighting and Bronzing Palette, €45. Perfect sundowner brushes for the job? The Dimension collection from Blank Canvas; 12-brush set, €79.99.
Giorgio Armani Sunset Bronzing Palette, €75
Fed up with lacklustre, over-bleached or generally tired hair? Working as a “hair antibiotic”, Joico’s intensive three-step treatment penetrates damaged hair deep at the root of the cause. Each step involves product applied for five minutes, rinsed, and repeated, before having hair blow-dried to perfection. This in-salon service will completely renew damaged and withered hair to almost perfection (it works wonders – not miracles!) and adds a gorgeous touch of relaxation and rejuvenation to an already luxurious blow-dry. From SitStil, Drury Street, Dublin 2. Three-step revitalising treatment, €30; blow-dry, €35.
