What's new from Clarins for Spring 2013
Aside from the usual springtime pinks, French beauty brand Clarins opts for a smouldering eye palette in its latest collection launch. The set, seen here below, and priced £30, is made of up of four mineral eye shades which, aside from the glittering white highlighter, are intense and brooding. I'm particularly loving the indigo shade, which is similar to the shade seen on the catwalk at Mary Katrantzou, and paired with the highlighter and grey is a little light relief from pastel shades.
Clarins Summer Makeup Collection - Enchanted Summer
Come, take a trip with me, Nifty readers, as we leave the grey, cloudy UK shores and head to somewhere altogether more exotic and beautiful. And thanks to the new summer makeup collection from Clarins, we don't even had to step on a plane.

Mothers Day Spa Special
Ahhh, the gift of relaxation: worth its weight in gold. So spoil your mum with a spa gift this Mothers Day. Tried and tested, and totally recommended is the new Clarins Melting Honey Hot Stone Massage which I’ve just had done at the Clarins Spa in Edinburgh’s House of Frasers on Princes Street (formerly Jenners). To say it’s amazing is an understatement and I left in a sort of massaged induced trance. Four indivdual shapes of stone are used on different parts of the body.
Roses are red, violets are blue, here's a red lipstick, perfect for you! Time to pucker up ladies because Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

Best Anti-Ageing Hand Creams
Is Madonna merely making a fashion statement with her ubiquitious leather gloves? Or is she trying to disguise something far more revealing - her age shock horror. Following Madge's appearance at the Golden Globes, my friend and fellow beauty blogger, Merle Brown over at Beauty Bombshells, was discussing the issue on Radio Scotland.

1. Copy Angelina Jolie with a feline flick. It's an old school Hollywood look that screams seduction and glamour. My recommendation is Revlon's ColorStay Liquid Liner. Its easy-to-use pen means precise application that lasts night long. £6.99, buy from Revlon counters nationwide.

Clarins Daily Energizers
Listen up Nifty campers, you want to age like Madonna, J-Lo and Demi, there's something you should know. No, it's not the number of the best plastic surgeon (those ladies all age naturally don't you know..cough). Nope, it's that old adage that it's never too soon to invest in your skincare. Your skin will thank you for it as you get older. So just getting rid of problem prone teen skin? Then your next step should be a skincare dedicated to 18-to-late-20s age group.
