Beauty Tips From the Top
Clinique's Black Honey range

Honey to the bee
Clinique has revamped its Black Honey range originally released in 1971. The New Black is inspired by the cult classic honey lip color, and now extends to a whole product range for the eyes, lips and cheeks. Almost Lipstick, (something between a lipstick and lipgloss) is the standout, giving you glossy colour that’s free from stickiness. From Dhs55.

Lift it up
Take a step away from the scalpel - Giorgio Armani is giving women a virtual face lift with its new Designer Lift foundation. The canny featherlight formula acts like a stretchy fabric, smoothing, firming and lifting the skin’s surface. It comes in 10 different skin shades meaning that all bases are covered. Dhs140.

In for spring
Guerlain has released a new range called Les Roses et le Noir that’s as beautiful as it is functional. Filled with preppy pink lipstick, kissable gloss, long lasting eyeshadows and iridescent powders it’s the perfect New Year beauty boost. The shining product is the Noir G mascara that leaves your lashes looking like they’ve been blow-dried.

Milking it
If you haven’t heard of UK Beauty brand Cowshed, now’s the time. Sisters Beauty Lounge is bringing the cult label to its branches in Dubai Mall, Jumeirah Village Mall and Mirdif City Centre. The rich creams are famous for their quirky names - think Lippy Cow lipgloss and Cow Pat Hand Cream - and the range is organic to boot, blended using essential oils from around world and herbs handpicked from the English countryside. With products for your hair, face and body, make a moo-ve on it today. From Dhs55. sistersbeautylounge.com

You minx
We love a bit of nail polish, but not when it starts to chip. So hooray for Minx nails, the talon trendsetters who specialise in adhesive nail art. Stocked in salons across the UAE, simply pick your design, and let the pro’s stick it on. warbacosmetics.com
