In the world of beauty, it’s common for daring trends and challenging techniques to become all the rage – think face oils, unique ingredients, high-tech hair styling tools, and tricky steps to create a desired look.
With Halloween only a few days away, now is a great time to step outside of your comfort zone. This year, accept the challenge to face your beauty fears, whatever they might be.
The following products from prestigious beauty brands Laura Mercier, ReVive, nyakio and Conair will help you conquer some very common beauty fears.
· Fear: Exotic, new ingredients that you don’t understand
o Solution: RéVive’s NEW Intensité Line Erasing Serum ($600) contains a new breakthrough ingredient that has never before been used in the US, the brand’s patented Line Relaxing Complex, which was derived from cone snail venom. There’s nothing to fear with this luxe product because brand founder and Harvard trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Gregory Bays Brown, worked with a Swiss Biotech company for several years to perfect this advanced wrinkle corrector.
· Fear: Your smoky eye looks more drab than fab
o Solution: Mastering a smoky eye is easy with Laura Mercier’s NEW Smoky Suede Eye Colour Palette ($55). Containing five easy-to-use suede colours, this palette will allow you to create your very own customized smoky eye look. This set includes a range of colors for a perfect transition from day to night, and includes two full-size brush heads on one compact brush.
· Fear: Spending money on an expensive blow dryer that doesn’t live up to expectations
o Solution: It’s all about the tools you use! Invest in a quality blow dryer, like the Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q ($119), to help you save both time and money with fewer trips to the salon. The powerful, triple benefit tool is named for its three “Q” benefits: quick, quiet and quality. It cuts drying time by 70%, lasts 10 times as long as other dryers and features 40% less noise with its patented noise reduction technology
· Fear: Oil-based products will make your face super oily
o Solution: There’s no need to fear oily skin and clogged pores with nyakio Hydrating Face Oil with Kola Nut ($49). This light, non-greasy face oil acts like a serum to hydrate skin for over 12 hours. The skin drinks up the face oil and with just a few drops, dry skin will feel moisturized and nourished.
