Bewitching beauty nuys for Hallowe’en...
Illamasqua are the go-to brand for all Hallowe’en extroverts. There’s a limited edition collection specifically designed, the perfect finishing touch whether you’re going gothic glam or sensually spooky. Head for their counter at Debenhams in Meadowhall and check out their nail varnish in Swarm (clear top coat with black speckles) at £14.50, or bat this lashingly good pair of falsies (£14.50). Buy both for £25.
Purified bee venom might sound like poison, but it’s a potent treat for the skin. The Manuka Doctor range, at Lloyds Chemists at Crystal Peaks or Holland and Barretts stores, combines purified bee venom and manuka honey to combat blemishes and anti-ageing. The company also claim it boosts collagen formation, prevents sun damage and helps cure acne. Bee Venom Rejuvenating Face Mask, £49.99, is a deep-penetrating skin renewal treatment that nurtures cell regeneration and is an intensive moisturiser. Leave on for 15-30 minutes depending on skin type.
Be spell-binding with a smokey eye look. It’s much less of a drama thanks to Bobbi Brown’s new Smokey Eye collection, a jet-black, kajal pigmented £22 mascara pledging show-stopping lash glamour and instant volume and partner in crime, Smokey Eye Kajal Liner, a highly-pigmented, super blendable formula that can even be used along the inner rim of the eye. Available in six shades, including black coffee, black amethyst
and jade, the pencil is £18 at Bobbi Brown in House of Fraser.
