Beauty Alerts for October
Turn Up The Volumes
Take on the town with a powerful beauty look for evening. The season's catwalk shows were awash with statement eye looks, most strikingly the exaggerated turquoise cats-eyes on show at Atelier Versace, created by makeup artist Pat McGrath. Interpret the look for yourself with a subtle swipe of jewel toned liquid eyeliner, directly across your lash line. We love Yves Saint Laurent's babydoll liners for this party perfect look, in a palette of shimmering blue or purple.
The new 'pore'fector gadget from bliss is like having an aesthetician in your own home. Imitating the effect of a bionic bliss spa facialist, the gadget generates sonic vibrations, which when coupled with bliss daily detoxifying facial toner, create micro-jets to deep clean clogged complexions.

Back To Nature
Konjac Facial Sponges are the latest cleansing craze. Unlike harsh chemical cleansers, the Konjac sponges, created from the root of the Konjac plant, gently exfoliate the skin and can be used every day for a deep, facial cleanse. Infused with natural clays, they are ideal for deep pore cleansing and clarifying skin, used on their own or with a cleanser. Priced from Dhs60
In need of a little beauty detox? The Green Tea treatment and product range from O’right was created to be a nurturing treat for chemically treated hair. With a refreshingly light lemongrass scent, the products are infused with antioxidants that are perfect for locks in need of a little love.
The shampoo and conditioner contain certified organic green tea extract to refresh scalp and keeps it healthy while preventing oxidisation.
