Lymphatic Drainage Facial
When Linda arrived into the Beauty Parlour, Yvonne noticed immediately that she had already had enough Aromathearpy oils for one day and decided the best treatment for her would actually be the Lymphatic drainage facial as her face needed a bit more circulation. It was incredible to see the difference after the treatment of how her face toned immediately as well as feeling more smooth. She looked radiant leaving the Beauty Parlour.

Getting Designer Glasses

Here are a few guidelines and steps that were given to Linda when she arrived at the Dublin Eye Center. They should also be considered for any one looking for new frames or lenses. Yvonne Cassidy looked after Linda very well and talked her through each step of different shaped frames etc and helped her wisely to choose the right frames for her shaped face and work life. Linda only wears glasses when she has to but maybe now with the right chosen pair, she might never take them off!

Here are a few tips to remember

. If the patient has a particularly high prescription then smaller frames should be chosen and a high index material should be used in the spectacle lenses in order to make the spectacles look and feel thinner and lighter, in this way the spectacles will look less like a medical apparatus and more of a fashion accessory.
Lifestyle and Personality
. Whether one needs their spectacles for work eg , computers or at home minding the children their is a huge selection of frames and lens possibilities to recreate or revolutionising your image, and remember the right pair of spectacles can make you look younger, happier, healthier and more confident, unfortunately the reverse can also  be true, you can dislike your look or even yourself always remember a big personality always goes for the wow factor.
Face Shapes
. When selecting frames care should be taken not to match the shape of the face, ie a round face should not wear round frames. Frames should look balanced and in proportion to the face.
. To get you looking your best one of the most important ingredient's is to find the right colour combination to wear in harmony with your own individual hair, skin and eye colour.
Current trends
. There is a big swing to bold shell frames and we find that rectangular shapes are all in fashion at the moment, whether it be Dior, Diesel or a trendy Oasis is a matter of personal choice and means.

10 Minute Face Life
Eye brow tint and shape

The dye was applied by Linda and it was literally left on for no longer than 30 seconds for her eyebrows as it take no time for dye to take in. it was hard to believe the difference that a dye can do. Linda has plucked her eyebrows all her life and you could tell as they were badly looked after. One big tip for every woman is that we should all get our eyebrows tinted and professionally shaped once and then keep up the work from there.
She plucked the eye brows after the tint as when you pluck your brows your pores become open and therefore the dye will then get in and cause an infection. Linda enjoyed her little lesson on how to take care of her eyebrows.
