Reviewing "Fabulous Prime"
What are primers ?
Primers are fairly new products that have recently been introduced into makeup ranges to camouflage common signs of ageing. Primers smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and fill open pores, giving the skin a smoother, silkier, younger feel and look.
How to apply "Fabulous Prime"
Fabulous Prime is a primer specifically made for the face. Apply after the application of your moisturiser (make sure you leave a few minutes for your moisturiser to soak in) and before the application of your foundation. Start by putting a small amount on your finger tips and lightly apply moving from the centre of your face, using upwards and outwards movements.
There is an excellent tutorial on youtube that actually shows you how to apply this product.
Feel good after fifty's product review:
This product is rather amazing. It looks invisible and feels like silk. It instantly changed the feel of my skin when I applied it. It smoothed on incredibly easily and my fine lines and wrinkles were instantly diminished. It really did make me look younger! It was really hot when I was applying my makeup and after applying foundation on top of the fabulous prime I needed to dab my face with a dry tissue to cool off, the primer held the makeup in place, and the tissue was practically spotless. I had a really nice matt finish to my makeup which looked beautifully natural. I asked my husband what he thought as he really doesn't like heavy makeup and I had his enthusiastic seal of approval too!
As summer fades into autumn, sun tans fade and sun damage is no longer hidden, it 's often a moment when we can feel a little down about the way we look. Your complexion may have more fine lines and wrinkles it may feel dry and flaky or have lost some elasticity and feel droopy and dull.
This is an ideal time to boost your skin with natural ingredients, replenish it's glow whilst raising your moral with a look-good/feel-good factor. There is no need to go out and buy expensive products , you can easily make your own for a fraction of the price and keep the left overs in the fridge for a few days in a sterilized sealed container.
Here is a simple recipe to indulge your skin with .
1/2 Avocado pear
1/2 soup spoon of honey
1/2 soup soon virgin olive oil
a few drops of lemon juice

Smooth onto your cleansed skin , avoiding the eye area.
Relax for 10 minutes whilst the mask soaks in. Rinse with warm water. Pat skin dry gently with a soft clean towel.

After the summer hair often becomes dry, brittle and fragile.
Sun, sea and excessive heat can really take it's toll. This is an ideal moment to concentrate on restoring your hair to its former beauty.
Use a gentle, nourishing shampoo and deep conditioning treatment to soften and replenish your hair. Products containing
keratin are extremely efficient although this type of product is often expensive.
Protect your hair from excessive heat by leaving it to dry naturally or lowering the temperature on your hair-dryer then apply a small amount of hair oil to the lengths and ends working it in thoroughly.
Avoid washing and drying too often, but when you do wash it leave the conditioning treatment on for a few hours. This will ensure maximum benefit.
The sun plays havoc with tinted hair. It permanently lightens the colour each time you stay in the sun. The first thing to avoid is exposing your hair to the sun. This can be done by either wearing a hat or sitting in the shade. Obviously it's impossible to keep your hair out of the sun all summer long, so eventually you'll find that your colour has altered and become a few shades lighter.
An easy way to tone down a sun lightened colour is to have a few darker streaks or lowlights put through your hair in your base colour. If you're grey , select a basic shade a few shades darker than the sun-lightened one. Usually only a few streaks are needed but it makes an enormous difference to the hair, naturalizing the effect. Streaks should be concentrated on the top sections and a few around the face. The underneath is only an issue if you wear your hair up, in which case a few streaks around the hairline are also needed.
