Vintage make-up back in fashion
If you're looking for new make-up ideas, you might be interested to hear that vintage colours and styles are back in fashion.
According to Beryl Barnard, director of education at the London School of Beauty and Makeup, coral shades are making a real comeback.
She said this colour used to be reserved for "old ladies of 75" but is increasingly being used to create young and funky looks.
"Now we have got the soft, prettier corals, more fuchsia, Barbie pink," she explained.
Ms Barnard also pointed out that makeup trends evolve with the seasons, so as autumn turns to winter, colours are likely to get darker.
"In the winter, you have your vampy red and your burgundies and you probably wear a lot of black," she remarked.
However, the vintage look will still be popular, the expert predicted, especially following the sudden death of singer Amy Winehouse.
"For winter, there will definitely be the Amy Winehouse vintage eyeliner," she envisaged.
However, it's likely that most women will opt for a subtler look than the Back to Black star, who made eyeliner flicks her trademark.
Ms Barnard explained that often, celebrity and catwalk trends are watered down to produce a more manageable everyday look.
"If you actually saw the catwalk makeup close up, it is actually unblended," she stated. "It needs to be very harsh to stand out along the runway."
She said makeup for real women should be softer and natural, and not as edgy as it is on the runway or in fashion magazines.
If you're experimenting with vintage makeup trends, bold colours and thick eyeliner, it's important that you invest in some natural beauty products to protect the delicate skin of your face.
A gentle facial cleanser that will remove all traces of makeup and impurities is a must, as is a good moisturiser.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
