Get the look: Oscars Makeup

Tuesday, February 28, 2017
With all of the hoo-ha at the end of this year's Oscars, one could almost lose sight of what's really important. For us it's the gowns, the glamour, and as lovers of skin care, the makeup. Without further ado, for our top 5 makeup looks from the 2017 Oscars, the nominees are...

Emma Stone

Emma Stone | Jane Iredale Perth
Old Hollywood glamour is never far from the Oscars red carpet. Emma nailed this look with her fiery red hair in a wavy 1930s style and a golden Givenchy gown. Her makeup was flawless. Glowing, pale skin with peachy cheeks, bronze and gold eyes with deep red, plump lips. Get this look: For luscious lips try Jane Iredale's Just Kissed Lip Plumper in NYC, with ginger to stimulate circulation and make lips appear fuller. For the eyes try Jane Iredale's Eye Shadow and Bronzer in Moonglow

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld | Jane Iredale
Oh me, oh my, that smokey eye! I'm always pleased to see this sultry makeup trend make another appearance, this time with a taupe twist. The full eyebrow goes perfectly with this look along with bronzed skin and glossy nude lips. I'll definitely be trying this look. You can too. Get this look: Jane Iredale's In the Blink of a Smoky Eye Kit, PureGloss Lip Gloss in Pink Smoothie and So Bronze Bronzer.

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams | Oscars 2017
For this looks it helps to have flawless skin! We can help you with cosmetic and skin treatments to get your skin in peak condition too, but that's a post for another day. Along with radiant skin, all you need for this barely-there makeup style is a perfect primer, killer foundation, rosy cheeks, nude lips and subtle highlighting. Get this look: Jane Iredale Absence Oil Control Primer and Jane Iredale Pressed Powder Mineral Foundation, dust the cheeks with Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in Cheeky.

Taraji P Henson

Oscars 2017 Makeup | Get the look
Tarija looked smoking hot. The tussled bob, the off-the-shoulder velvet gown and her makeup were all smoulderingly stunning. The standout for this look is the blue eyeliner, team that with some clever contouring, a killer brow, a light rosy blush and semi gloss nude lips and you are good to go! Get this look: Jane Iredale Eye Pencil in Midnight Blue, Jane Iredale Pure Brow GelsPureGloss Lip Gloss in Nectar and So Bronze Bronzer, a 4-in-1 bronzer. 

Scarlett Johanssen 

Oscars Makeup 2017 | Get the look
I love her hair! With a high fringe and cropped cut, your makeup is definitely on show but this is fairly simple makeup to try. Beautiful dewy skin, rosy cheeks, highlighting on cheekbones and inner eye and the pink glossy lips with heavier liquid eye liner on the top lid. Get this look: Highlight and contour with Jane Iredale Bronzer in Moonglow, eyes with Eye Shadow in Allure and Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner and PureGloss Lip Gloss in Candid Rose

The 5 most popular cosmetic treatments this Feb

Friday, February 24, 2017

We've been flat out this Fab Feb - just the way we like it! If you're wondering what everyone is getting done, here are the 5 most popular cosmetic treatments so far this month.  

There's only 5 days to go of Fab Feb and 20% off all Cosmetic Treatments, Makeup and Skin Care but don't panic. Book and pay for your cosmetic treatment in Feb and you have until 30 April to have your treatment and still get 20% off! We don't call it Fab Feb for nothing! 

1. Wrinkle Relaxers 

Before Wrinkle Relaxers  After Wrinkle Relaxers
Wrinkle relaxers are fairly painless and a very effective way to tackle frown lines, smile lines (nothing's that funny!), crow's feet, forehead wrinkles and smokers' lines. A series of tiny injections containing a naturally-occurring protein extract into facial muscles temporarily block the impulse from the nerve to the muscle. It takes effect in just a few days and  can last up to 4 months. 

Expect compliments like: 'Wow! Your skin looks lovely!', 'Wow! You look exactly the same as you did 20 years ago!' and 'Damn! I never should have let her go!'

Perfect for: School reunions, weddings, running into an ex-boyfriend and just looking fabulous. 

Find out more about Wrinkle Relaxers and book your free consultation. 

2. Underarm Hair Removal

Before IPL Underarm Hair Removal  After IPL Underarm Hair Removal
OK, if you haven't already heard of IPL permanent hair removal, prepare to have your mind blown. This stuff works! IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light, controlled flashes of intense filtered light are directed onto the skin. The melanin in dark hair absorbs the light converting it into heat which destroys the follicle. It usually takes around 6 to 8 treatments with sessions 4 to 6 weeks apart. It stings a bit but much less than waxing. 

Expect compliments like: 'Who is your waxer, she's a genius!' and 'Were you born completely hairless?'

Perfect for: Never shaving, bleaching, plucking or hiding your underarms again. Spontaneous waving without embarrassment.

3. Lip Fillers and Cheek Fillers 

Before Lip Fillers   After Lip Fillers
Lip fillers are one of the most popular treatments at Skin Resus and with good reason. We're not talking Kylie Jenner, a subtle lip augmentation or enhancement can restore fullness to lips, plump up thin lips and treat those tiny little lip wrinkles and smoker's lines. A fine needle is used to inject sterile gel into the lips and along the border and includes a local anaesthetic to take the sting out of it. Treatments last 4 to 8 months. 

Cheek fillers are much the same, the filler is injected with a small needle and reduces signs of ageing, restores facial fullness and lifts facial sagging. 

Expect compliments like: 'I must kiss you, immediately!' and 'I don't know what it is but you look FABULOUS!'

Perfect for: Removing those subtle, yet insidious little ageing signs like thin lips and sagging cheeks. Amazing before and after selfies. #skinresusbeforeandafter

4.  Bikini Hair Removal and Brazilian Hair Removal 

My bikini wearing days are long gone and rather than the Brazilian, I'm cultivating more of a Madagascan jungle down there. But it's not too late for all of you. If you are still messing about with nightmarish six weekly waxing visits over summer, that can all end with 6 to 8 treatments of IPL bikini or Brazilian hair removal. It hurst less than waxing and it's permanent.

Perfect for: Spontaneously grabbing the bathers and heading to the beach - anytime, anywhere forever. 

Expect compliments like: 'Thank you.'

5. Full Face Rejuvenation

Before IPL Freckle Removal  After IPL Freckles Removal
If you want to look as though you've been on a holiday at a spa retreat, this is the treatment for you. IPL face rejuvenation is A-MAY-ZING! It removes sun damage, pigmentation, freckles, sun spots, age spots, broken capillaries, rosacea, redness and stimulates the collagen in your skin. All of these little spots leave tired looking little marks on your face, a full face rejuvenation removes them all and plumps the skin at the same time. Giving you an overall healthy glow. 

Perfect for: Removing trouble spots like rosacea and redness. Giving your face a good all over rejuvenation. 

Expect compliments like: 'Hey, beautiful, marry me!' and 'Who is your travel agent? You look fabulous!'

Fab Feb - 20% off all cosmetic treatments, skin care and makeup!

Did you know that every school holidays a mother grows 5 new wrinkles? OK, this may not be a scientific observation. After dropping the kids at school this morning I caught my reflection in the rear view mirror (never a good idea – car mirrors are so … VIVID?!). 

I hadn’t put my make up on or brushed my hair and had that frazzled look may of us have when the back to school routine returns. A quick scan revealed new blue under eye circles, several new wrinkles (after school holidays, they’re not laugh lines), three rogue chin hairs and a faint moustache. Does this sound familiar? 

What perfect timing for Skin Resus' Fab Feb sale. For the whole of February, take 20% off all cosmetic treatments, skin care and Jane Iredale makeup. 

For us mums, this is where the new year really starts. You’re fab, it’s Feb, new year, new you. 

Not sure where to start? Come and have a latte and a free consultation with us in Floreat. 

 A few extra crows feet? 20% off wrinkle relaxers

Rogue chin hairs or a faint moustache? 20% off IPL hair removal 

Under eye circles? 20% off dermal filler   

 Whatever cosmetic treatment or product you've been thinking about, it's 20% cheaper this month at Skin Resus.
