The Eyes Have It

Ready for the festive party season?

This Christmas it’s all about the eyes; think bold, sexy and striking if you want to stand out in a crowd.

Our therapist Flora gives the lowdown on the latest eye make-up trends and shares her professional tips...

Must-have make-up trends for Christmas

“There are some beautiful eye make-up trends this year with something for everyone,” enthuses Flora.

Her favourites include:

  • Winged eyeliner
  • Rose gold and copper shimmering eye shadows
  • Full long luscious lashes

Winged eyeliner
Winged eyeliner is an absolute classic– it creates such a sophisticated and sassy effect.

“Start in the inner corner of your eye” explains Flora, “then gently pull a liquid liner brush or pen across your upper lash line, adding a gentle flick at the end. If you find it tricky, try drawing small dots along the lash line first then join them together. Remember you can always remove smudges with a small brush and some make-up remover.”

Sparkling eyes
Who doesn’t love a glittery eye shadow at Christmas?

Rose gold and burnished copper shades have been spotted at all the runway shows; perfect for warming up any skin tone and ultra-flattering especially for blue or green eyes.

Flora’s expert tip: “For extra glamour add a highly pigmented glitter shadow to the corners of your eyes only – it really makes your eyes pop. And don’t be afraid to combine the above trends for a show-stopping dramatic look.

Eye-catching lashes for the party season

Lashes are having a moment and gorgeous full fluttering lashes are everywhere this season. Forget the ‘falsies’ of yesteryear, today’s lashes can be delicate and natural looking or big, bold and beautiful. The choice is yours.

Eyelash extensions for festive glamour
Rebecca Jade offer the premium LVL lash services including the popular Nouveau Extend treatment, which promises thicker and fuller lashes with extra lift and length.

Our experienced therapists carefully apply the individual lashes one at a time to ensure a fluttery-looking finish which won’t damage your natural lashes. A tint is also included in the treatment. They can last between 6-8 weeks if the correct aftercare is followed so you can flutter your way into the new year.

Natural winter beauty
Prefer a more natural look?

The LVL Lash Lift adds superb length and lift to your own lashes without the use of adhesives or extensions. This popular treatment creates natural-looking volume by straightening at the root of your lashes, for a fuller, thicker effect with a hint of tint. The ‘lift’ is tailored to your preference – perfect for first timers.

“For real va va voom combine the two treatments 24 hours apart for the ultimate festive eye-opener” suggests Flora.

Don’t struggle with messy falsies this year. Book an appointment with our expert lash therapists; with their years of experience and premium products you’ll be in safe hands. Call 01582 280078.

HD Brows frame the face

“Brows have seen a boom in recent years; thicker brows frame the face, provide structure and give beautiful definition to any make-up look” says Flora.

HD Brows (high definition brows) is a 7 step process giving you gorgeously groomed and defined brows, tailored to your facial shape and colouring. The highly personalised treatment transforms your look and promises to frame your face, regardless of how much brow hair you naturally have.

Complete your party look

We use (and love) Jane Iredale skincare mineral make-up at Rebecca Jade as it’s:

  • Hypoallergenic and kind to your skin.
  • Anti-inflammatory so calms and soothes redness.
  • Dermatologist tested with only the highest quality ingredients.
  • Vegan.
  • Certified by ECOCERT, Skin Cancer Foundation, PETA and Leaping Bunny

Their range of velvety soft, beautifully pigmented eye shadows, are the perfect choice for achieving a gorgeous festive shimmer. Plus they are suitable for even the most sensitive of eyes, so you can make a statement with your eye make-up without risking irritation.

Flora’s top festive make-up tips:

  • Suffering from dry,cracked lips this winter? Slather on Jane Iredale Sugar and Butter Lip Exfoliator before you apply your lipstick or gloss. They’ll be luscious and soft in no time.
  • For a full, kissable pout use a lip liner before your lipstick. We have some fab matching lip liners and lipsticks.
  • Always use the correct brush when applying foundation/powder – it makes all the difference to a flawless finish and avoids product wastage.
  • Finish with the Hydration Spray Spritz to ‘set’ your make-up and keep it looking fresher for longer. We’ve sprays to suit a variety of skin concerns including rosacea/acne and problematic complexions, so do just ask us.

Allergy testing for your wellbeing

Even the best professional products can cause allergic reactions occasionally. We take your personal wellbeing very seriously and never compromise on safety standards. Our complimentary allergy skin (patch) test gives you peace of mind in seconds. It’s quick, easy, painless.

No need to make an appointment just pop in when it suits you (at least 48 hours before your first lash and brow treatments).
