Best thing to use for stretch marks
Q. Could you tell me the best thing to use on stretch marks? Suffered with them from being a teen (bust area) and the ones on my stomach are really bothering me (pregnancy 9yrs ago).
I also lost nearly 2st since xmas, which has made them look worse. I exfoliate and use a decent body cream and on wait list for prolagene gel duo but I'm open to try anything to improve them, if only they could vanish!
A. Unfortunately stretch marks cannot be vanished. There is some light therapy that you can have done through private clinics that will probably have the most effective result.
Prolagene gel is the best product and for a fast track start, you could try Mammio Mio Bootcamp for Tummies. Also remember self tan disguises them fantastiically! ALi x
How to make eye make up stay on with watery eyes
Q. I have terrible watery eyes due to after effects of chemotherapy, I need an eyeliner and mascara that won't come off. Ali, please help. Thanks in advance x
Liner on the lower eye area stays put longer when used in the rim and then when your eyes water, you can still dab underneath the eyes without messing up the liner.
And concentrate your liner shapework on the upper lid above the lashes. Ali x
On oily skin
Q. My skin is so oily, I use SBC for toning, moisturising ,face cream, but wake up every morning looking like I have a put olive oil on my face, by then end of the day I am positively slippery. What am I doing wrongly.
A. You need to make sure you're doing the same routine each morning as well to cleanse, hydrate and balance the skin and then it should stop it being so oily through the day.
Also you may prefer something like the matte primer in light from Smashbox which absorbs oil or the bareMinerals foundation – the matte formula.
And if you are already happy with your make-up but just need mattifying, use the Laura Geller matte maker. Ali x
