A Night With 3 Experts On Anti Aging
Naomi and Jules headed over to Stoke Poges on Tuesday to attend an interesting anti aging beauty night with the experts. Ariane Poole Celebrity Makeup artist teamed up with 2 well known faces in the beauty world to deliver an evening with the experts. The first was multi award winning skin guru Dr Tracy Mountford founder and Medical Director of The Cosmetic Skin Clinic in Buckinghamshire and London Harley St.
Dr Mountford’s “philosophy is to enhance natural beauty rather than alter looks. The key is to not look like you have had anything done”. That is why she is the ‘go to’ person for so many celebs.Dr Mountford was on hand to discuss non-surgical questions and gave an insight into all the new cutting edge anti-ageing treatments from the USA, of which there are many.
The second expert was celebrity hairdresser Andrew Barton. Andrew has won many awards for his
hair creations, including ‘Hairdresser of the Year’. His eye for trend forecasting makes him a firm favourite with beauty editors and he is widely regarded as the ‘hairdressers’ hairdresser, not forgetting his long standing appearance as the resident hairdresser on ’10 Years Younger’. Andrews’s passion is transforming the hair of ‘real’ women, giving them beautiful, feminine styles they can easily manage themselves. He delivered an interesting talk on how to deal with grey hair and how to keep your hair looking it’s absolute best, hair botox he calls it. We love it!
The evening was in support of the Katie Piper Foundation. All of the proceeds raised went towards supporting other burns victims to undergo the same therapy as Katie experienced in France that is not currently available here in the UK.
I think the highlight of Jules and Naomi’s evening was getting front row seats to Ariane Poole’s Makeup presentation. Ariane’s career has spanned over twenty-five years, as a leading name in her field, she has worked with many of the top fashion beauty photographers and an impressive list of celebrities, models, pop stars and even royalty.
Being highly renowned, her credits include major advertising campaigns for the likes of Max Factor, Boots No7, Almay, Miss Selfridge and Molton Brown. She is also a regular contributor to many magazines, newspapers and websites as well as past television credits including GMTV, the Big Breakfast, “Lets Get Beautiful” for Carlton Digital, “Makeover Hit Squad” for Granada and the Special K Lifestyle Series for Sky.
Five years ago, Ariane launched a make-up range reflecting her dream of creating a line of cosmetics that were not only fashionable and innovative but quick and easy to use and above all, a problem solver for make-up dilemmas.
Ariane is regularly asked to predict future trends in make-up as well as giving good advice and tips. Therefore her product range offers helpful and practical solutions as well as fantastic trend-led products.
Her celebrity followers include: Fern Britton, Sharon Osbourne, Kirsty Gallagher, Cilla Black, Sue Barker, Tess Daley, Melanie Sykes, June Sarpong, Kerri Katona, Denise Van Outen, Julia Carling, Lisa Snowdon, Linda Lusardi and Gail Porter.
So who better to listen to when your thinking about makeup for your 20’s/30’s/40’s plus. Ariane understands the importance of using the right colours and trends for your age but interestingly as we age the way we apply our make-up should change quite alot. Her make-up range is just divine. Naomi loved her retexturing facial primer and I think Jules wanted the entire range.
So all in all it was a great evening thanks for the tips Tracy, Ariane and Andrew we’ll bare those in mind!
