Is it teething time for your little one?


The face of beauty has changed. Gone are the days of the simple cleanse-tone-moisturise skincare routine, when the most complex make-up decision we had to make was whether to treat ourselves to a lipstick or gloss.


Now, we’re faced with a bewildering world of serums, oils, chemical toners, foundations categorised by letters of the alphabets and the mysterious world of contouring.


Confused? Well, you’re not the only one! But that’s where Irish Times beauty writers Aisling McDermott and Laura Kennedy are here to help.


Their book, About Face, is a wonderland of advice, recommendations, tips and hilarious anecdotes – no matter what your complaint is this book has the answer.



The girls have tried every beauty myth, fad, concoction and products possible. They know what works and what doesn’t, and have given their best recommendations and advice for ALL TYPES of skin.


From ingredients to look out for in times of skin crisis, making the most of your brows, getting a foundation match, dealing with the horror of brush washing and even how to perfect selfie make-up, they have ALL the answers!
