For years, I have heard many good things about Sisley, a high-end skincare line from France. And now that I am in my mid-twenties, I paid a visit to the closest Sisley counter at House Of Frasier looking to splurge on a nice eye cream for myself.

Initially, the sales assistant had recommended Sisley Eye and Lip Contour Complex for younger skin but since I wear eye makeup on a daily basis and my eye area is on the drier side, I wanted something richer to prevent wrinkles and help with puffiness and circles – hence the Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream.

The eye cream is formulated with a high concentration of active ingredients including Padina Pavonica algae extract, Matricaria, Licorice, Wheat proteins, and vitamins E, B5 and F to moisturize, tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent the appearance of under-eye puffiness and dark circles. The texture felt slightly thicker than other eye creams I have used but still really easy to spread and easily absorbed. It also did not feel greasy and it worked great with my concealer.

I have been using this for almost a few months now but it only took one application to see a difference. My eyes were instantly more toned, moisturized and less puffy and over time, I think my undereye circles have faded a little too. Definitely worth the hefty £80 price tag!

If you have straight hair and want to create sexy wavy hair a la Ashlee Simpson, all you need is ten minutes and five simple steps.

Step 1. Apply a heat-protection product onto your hair and make sure it is evenly distribute (I like Paul Mitchell Heat Seal).

Step 2. Wrap an one inch section of your hair around a middle sized barrel curling iron. I just got Vidal Sassoon Micro Crystal Curl 25mm Tong and I LOVE that baby! Not only does it heat up within seconds but it also has nine different settings (now this should go under another entry).

Eyes
Rim your upper and lower lashlines with a shimmery charcoal eyeshadow and wing it slightly at the outer corner – MAC’s Knight Divine is *perfect* for this. Highlight the inner corner of your eyes with a shimmery white powder like Stila’s All Over Shimmer Powder in #7. Curl your eyelashes and apply several coats of black mascara.

Face
Swipe a bubblegum pink blush like NARS Desire along your cheekbones and sweep the same shimmery white powder along your nose to highlight it.

Lips
To get luscious lips like Ara’s, try a pink gloss like Bourjois’ Effet 3D High Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Angelic 5.
