  • Get The Look: Dita Von Teese

    THE classic 1950s pin up look

    has been making a comeback

    thanks to stars like world famous

    Burlesque dancer Dita Von


    Ditas super pale skin is flawless;

    start by applying your foundation

    to get an even look. We suggest

    Illamasqua Skin Base Founda-

    tion, 23.00 (1), which has a

    huge shade range to suit any skin


    Next apply a setting powder all

    over the face; Rimmel Stay Matte

    Powder, 3.99 (2), is perfect for

    achieving matte 1950s skin.

    Dita usually goes for a very sim-

    ple eye look, a pale shadow all

    over the lid with a matte brown in

    her crease.

    No pin up look would be complete

    without a cat eye, so try using

    MAC Fluidline in Black Track,

    14.00 (3) with an angled brush

    to get that perfect flick!

    Lashings of black mascara and a

    pair of fluttery falsies add to the


    Fill in the brows with a pencil like

    Rimmels EyeBrow Pencil, 2.99


    Keeping things matte, apply a

    pink blusher like Illamasqua

    Naked Rose, 18.00 (5), on to

    the apples of your cheeks.

    Finally, line the lips with a red lip

    liner and apply a matte red lip-

    stick like Ditas favourite, MAC

    Russian Red, 14.00 (6). And

    there you have it, a classic 1950s

    pin up look that will suit everyone!

  • Fight The Fuzz

    HERE at Scottish Hair & Beauty, we believe that if you

    want to go au natural, then good for you! But we like

    our legs smooth, and here are some of our top products

    for the job:

    Gilette Razors:3.99 for 6 - An oldie but a goodie,

    these razors combined with a good shaving cream will

    do the trick. An absolute baragain, these dont come

    with any fancy blades or moisture strips but theyre bril-

    liant to keep as a back up.

    Veet In Shower Hair Removal Cream:11.00 - Really

    easy to use; just pop the cream on and jump in the

    shower. 5-10 minutes later and youre fuzz free! Fantas-

    tic. It can be a little smelly but on the whole the easi-

    ness of using it trumps the whiff.

    Veet Touchably Smooth Rechargable Epilator:

    39.99 - Although slightly painful, the benefits of using

    an epilator are plenty. Not only are you left with super

    smooth legs, the effects last a good few days. Perfect

    for going on holiday or to a festival.

    Veet Wax Strips:5.99 - Waxing, like epilation, can be

    painful but achieves the best results. Veet wax strips

    dont require any messy wax or fabric. Simply warm up

    the strips, place them on, wait, pull them off and youre

    good to go!

    Laser hair removal - Laser hair removal cna be expen-

    sive option but its effects are permenant. And in the

    long term in can work out cheaper than buying razors

    for the rest of your life. Over several sessions the laser

    zaps your hair follicle until it falls away, and there we

    have it, no more unsightly hair!

    Edinburgh are currently offering a 30% discount on hair

  • How to find:

    Your perfect foundation

    Every woman strives to find the perfect foundation.

    The base that will make them look flawless, keep their

    skin shine free or give them a dewy glow. So many

    cosmetics companies make promises they cant keep,

    and cosmetics lovers keep being dissapointed with

    yet another foundation that doesnt live up to its hype.

    You go shopping and return home feeling great about

    your new purchase. The next day you try it on - and

    youre suddenly orange. Or it lasts about 5 minutes

    before sliding off your face. The list goes on. Buying

    foundation can be tricky, but there are a few things

    you should know first -

    Get colour matched: Getting the right colour of foun-

    dation iis the most important part. Your face definitely

    shouldnt be a different colour from the rest of you!If

    you go to a counter that has an assistant, get them to

    colour match you. If you go to a stand that doesnt

    have an assistant, try testing the foundation on your

    jawline and not your hand, as it gives a more accurate

    match. Illamasqua Skin Base foundation (23.00)

    comes in a wide range of shades.

    Coverage: What coverage do you want? Light,

    medium or heavy, the choice is yours. A light/medium

    coverage foundation will perfect your skin but wont

    cover scars, spots or dark marks. A full coverage

    foundation should cover anything you might want to

    hide. A great full coverage foundation is Revlon Color

    Stay (12.99), which comes in two versions for dry or

    oily skin.

    Skin type: Your skin type is hugely important when

    choosing a foundation. Dryer skins suit foundations

    with a dewy finish - try something like MAC Mineralize

    Moisture (21.50). Oilier skins need a foundation that

    will last - something like Estee Lauder Double Wear

    (31.00) will last for hours even on oily skin. Dull skin

    will suit something like Rimmel Wake Me Up (7.99).

    Occasion: If youre buying foundation for an occason

    like a wedding, bear in mind youre going to be pho-

    tographed. Avoid foundations with a high SPF as they

    tend to make you look white when flash photography

    is used. Look out for titanium dioxide in the ingredi-

    ents even if the bottle doesnt have an SPF on it.

    MAC Face & Body foundation (25.00) is great for

    events where flash photography will be used.
