No Makeup Skincare Make-up from Perricone MD
Perricone MD, the scientific skincare created by Dr. Nicholas Perricone, has unveiled No Makeup Skincare (£25-£45). Designed to reveal the glow of health and the flush of youth, Dr. Nicholas Perricone addresses the ageing concern of loss of youthful colour which naturally occurs as we age due to a change in the balance of pigment activity. Over time, skin loses its inner radiance as a dull, grey cast drapes over the face. Designed with Dr. Nicholas Perricone’s leading anti-aging skincare technology, No Makeup Skincare restores the look of healthy, radiant skin. The breakthrough formulations found in No Makeup Skincare not only deliver the instant benefits of youthful colour, but over time also help to sculpt the appearance of youthful facial architecture. The collection includes: No Foundation Foundation Serum, No Bronzer Bronzer, No Blush Blush, No Mascara Mascara, No Concealer Concealer, No Lipstick Lipstick and No Foundation Foundation.
Gary Cockerill reveals his new book, Simply Glamorous
Make-up artist Gary Cockerill is best known for his glamorous, sultry make-up style. In his new book, Simply Glamorous, Gary proves that with a little knowledge and practice, everyone can use make-up to enhance or disguise so they feel confident in their appearance. He begins by demonstrating what he loves most about make-up: its ability to transform. By applying four different looks to one face, he shows how the same ‘blank canvas’ can be natural, sophisticated, glamorous or dramatic. He then presents 15 breathtaking makeovers on women of all ages, explaining step by step how to re-create the looks.
Divided into ‘Face’, ‘Eyes’ and ‘Lips’, the transformations range from nude and natural – ‘Barely There’, ‘Sun-kissed Goddess’ and ‘Girl Next Door’ – to high octane glamour – ‘Showgirl’, ‘Bombshell’ and ‘Glamour Puss’. They illustrate every aspect of make-up, from contouring, to false eyelashes, to wearing colour, and include the iconic looks that Gary is always asked to create – the smoky eye, the fifties flick and the red lip. ‘Tutorials’ address key topics in greater detail, such as skincare, foundation, contouring and application techniques for eyes and lips.
As a self-taught make-up artist, Gary works instinctively with amazing results. His approach is creative and his teaching style is friendly and down-to-earth as he shows how glamorous make-up can be accessible to everyone. He may not always do things the conventional way, but his techniques are the result of more than 25 years spent working with women and men of all ages, ethnicities and styles.
He knows what works and what looks good, and encourages everyone to have fun and experiment with make-up to make themselves look and feel beautiful and glamorous.
Simply Glamorous By Gary Cockerill with Photography by Vikki Grant is available from 17th September and can be pre ordered on Amazon (£25).
