Clarins new Vital Light Serum is designed to repair, brighten and smooth out your skin priced at £56 this new product uses Hexylresorcinol which helps to reduce the excess production of melanin, Spergularia a pioneer plant extract also helps to reinforce the effectiveness of the Hexylresorcinol which reduces the appearence of dark spots. Waltheria plant extract is used to stimulate the production of new collagen whilst protecting existing collagen that plumps out the skin this in turn creates a beautiful skin tone with reduced appearence of fine lines. The product also uses Katafray bark this plant extract stimulates the production of the protein filaggrin which boosts the skin's natural moisturising factor.
If your reaching a point where your skin is looking dull, lined and uneven it might be worth trying, £56 is a large sum of money though to most women the chance of looking younger is all too irrestible.

This is a tutorial that I wanted to do but left it late in the day to photograph and so it was a rush job before the sun went down so please excuse the sloppy look of the nails it should have looked a lot better.
1. Use any two colours of your choice making sure one is lighter than the other to see the contrast in colours.
2. Paint the whole nail first with the lighter colour I would normally use a base coat as this stops nail polish from staining the nails and gives something for the varnish to adhere to.
3. When polish is completely dry (which is what I did not do) apply cellotape to one nail not the strong stuff as it peels of the varnish, on a slant or however way you want the effect then apply the darker polish as soon as you have done the one nail remove the cellotape slowly straight away, apply this process to each nail one at a time. My tip would be to cut ten pieces of cellotape ready to apply on the edge of the table or something as it is a nightmare trying to do it with wet fingernails.
The end result funky nails if I had more time they would have looked awesome!
If you want your hard work to last longer apply a top coat!
