About Face

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.
