The Skincare and Make-Up Bible for the Changing Face of Beauty


12-11-2015 16:00

The face of beauty has changed. Gone are the days of the simple cleanse-tone-moisturise skincare routine, when the most complex make-up decision we had to make was whether to treat ourselves to a lipstick or gloss. Now, we’re faced with a bewildering world of serums, oils, chemical toners, foundations categorised by letters of the alphabet and the mysterious world of contouring. Confused?

 

Allow Irish Times beauty writers Aisling and Laura to help. They have tried them all. They know what works – and what doesn’t – and the best of their recommendations and advice are contained within the pages of this informative and humorous book, About Face.

 

No matter what your age or skin type, in About Face you’ll find the answers to all of your beauty questions and confusions. From ingredients to look out for in times of skin crisis, making the most of your brows, faking the feck out of your lipstick, getting a foundation match, the inevitable horror of brush washing, perfecting selfie makeup, false lash application, the perfect skincare regime, tackling adult acne… and aging like Helen Mirren!

 

Praise for About Face:
‘I love About Face! It’s inspiring and expertly written.’ Marian Keyes
‘Every woman should have this book.’ Roz Purcell
’This book is your face’s new best friend.’ Panti
‘Seriously brilliant beauty gurus.’ Róisín Ingle

 

About Face will be published by Gill Books on Friday 13th November 2015, priced at €22.99.
