Tips for buying the perfect swimwear for your body shape. 4.

1. 2.

Petite Boy-leg swimsuits are the perfect mix of sexy and cute and you have the perfect body shape to wear them. Along with cut-outs, boy-leg styles flatter tiny frames, accentuating sleek thighs and flat stomachs.

Large Bust Look after large busts with hidden support. Good quality support will not only lift and shape ample busts but also prevent embarrassing escapees in the surf.

3.

Small Bust Fake it with moulded cups. They’ll add volume and shape and maybe even a little cleavage. Look for ruffles, frills, ruching and pleats and let them create the curves for you.

Full figure Consider well-cut one-piece suits. Also use features like ruching detail and wrap front necklines to draw attention to your best attributes.

Pear Shape Draw the focus up with swimsuits that focus on the top half of your body. Try tops with prints, fills and embellishments and consider pairing them with a pant in a darker shade. Also try skirted pants.

Big Belly Look for tummy control lining to flatten and shape stomachs. Also, draw attention to your neckline with built-in bras, deep Vs and plunging necklines.

Finally, an item that combines style and practicality. super-sized and super-handy bags will never go out of fashion.

Remember the famous scene when the children first meet their new nanny – and her bag? Mar y Poppins pulls out a hat stand, a mirror, a pot plant... The children are amazed at what her magic bag can hold. Julie Andrews was per forming a great metaphor for the advantages of one of woman’s greatest and most useful accessories – the mighty tote. While the average woman may not need to lug around a hat stand, let’s face it, they still need “things”. Whether it’s study books, beach towels, baby needs or loads of on-the-go essentials, the ability of tote bags is to carr y it and carr y it in style. This means they’ll never go out of fashion and will grace the shelves of stores all year-round. So how do you know which tote is right for you? Tote bags come in all shapes and colours. In fact, the only thing they have in common is their size and practicality so choose one that suits your personality and wardrobe. This season’s all about colour – the more the better. Choose a tote in your favourite shade and don’t be afraid to wear it with lots of other colours. Or if that’s not your style, a tote with an interesting print – think croc or snakeskin – will instantly glam up any outfit. And of course, you can’t go wrong with a neutral tote that will last you throughout the seasons. So grab your things and load up one of these totes for a handy and stylish bag this spring.

It’s all about looking natural, sun-kissed and glowing this summer. Here’s how to get the barely-there look.

Mandi Davidson from Pure Indulgence says, “Less is more when it comes to creating a fresh, sun-kissed look. Start by using a foundation or tinted moisturiser that gives a flawless finish, but still allows natural skin to show through. Don’t forget to include your neck, upper chest and perhaps shoulders in your application touches to ensure a visual flow of colouration.” Danielle Vicente from Beauty Fixxation Hair & Beauty Bar recommends applying loose powder with a kabuki brush. “Apply it in

circular motions and add more for great coverage.” To continue the natural look, replace blush with a bronzer. “Bronzer on the cheeks gives definition to cheek bones. I apply it with a large powder brush.” Mandi adds, “Start with the apples of the cheeks and sweep out along the bone towards your temple, circle lightly at your outer jaw, brush across your forehead and down the bridge of the nose, between the middle and tip. This will highlight the areas the sun shines on naturally.”

When it comes to eyes, Danielle recommends applying loose gold dust over the entire eyelid, bronze loose dust through the socket area and white gold under the brow for, “a shimmery lift”. Charlotte Tilbury, M.A.C Cosmetics artist says of the pictured model, “there is liner around the top and bottom lashes, but it is very, very blended – there are no lines in this makeup.” For lips, Danielle recommends using a neutral lip liner and lipstick with a lipgloss over the top for added shine.

beautyguide Beauty tips and finds to have you

Back to base Don’t know which foundation to use? The type of base you apply to your skin can have a big effect on the way you look and on the way your skin feels. For lazy weekends, consider mixing your foundation with moisturiser. It will soften the colour and give you a dewy finish leaving skin looking younger and glowing. For a perfect night time base, look for a foundation with a matte finish. It will give you a striking, flawless look that’s bound to make an impression. If it’s foundation for the office you’re looking for it’s worth investing in a mineral base. Natural minerals prevent blocked pores and avoids the blemishes that ultimately follow. Speak to your beauty therapist about which shade will perfectly match your skin colour.

Powder eyeshadows are a sturdy, versatile product essential to every makeup bag. You can apply it with precision using a makeup brush or liberally with the smudge of a finger. But how do you make it last all day? The trick is not to moisturise before applying. Powder needs to stick to the skin, so make sure you have clean, dry lids before applying. Also consider using a translucent powder over the top for staying power. But don’t throw your eye cream out just yet. Always apply it before bed to replenish and moisturise eyes overnight.

Key fashion trends, exclusive brands and why Pacific Fair has the biggest and best Myer on the Gold Coast.

What are Myer’s key fashion looks this season? There are three distinct trends this season at Myer. The first is New Nautical which is a blend of traditional nautical shapes and colours with the 1950’s cottage garden influences. The look features a mix of spots and classic stripes complemented by a strong colour palette of navy, white and red. Hi There by Karen Walker is a brand that really embraces this trend this season. The second is Cosmetic Bloom, this is definitely a feminine and flirty look which features ruffles, silk, satin and lace. The final trend is Modern Military, which has a strong colour palette of desert storm neutrals, khakis and shades of green, with shades of red and gold, in essence it’s a blend of military meets safari.

spring gleam Ideas for updating your home décor.

Mixed

rack

Make a splash in your bathroom with beautiful, bright towels. Don’t be afraid to stray from the neutral uniform look and mix up to three different colours. Reintroducing bright hues to the bathroom will have you singing with joy in the shower and, best of all, dash his excuses for using your towel!

Every Votive Counts Warm spring afternoons mean a return to the deck for evening dining, but before you force open the French doors, head to Country Road for some votive candles. They’ll have you switching off the fluoros and bathing loved ones in warm candlelight.

“Sizzle” bath towels $17 each, “Sizzle” toggle bath mats $24.99 each, Target p 5553 2600

Skala Votives $9.95 each, Country Road p 5572 3450

TIP: Stick to single colours on the table for an intimate dinner for two but go all out with colours on party nights. Mercer + Reid “Aspen” throws $79.95, Adairs p 5538 2642

Hygiene Hint Tea towels are the lurking bacteria factories of the kitchen, constantly transferring nasties from hands to plates and back again. Help fend off nasty tummy bugs with these tips:

“CloverFields” soap dispenser $14.95, “CloverFields” cotton bud holder $12.95, “CloverFields” toothbrush holder $9.95, Egyptian cotton face washers $8.95 each, bath caddy $69.95, HolySheet! p 5539 0509

White Wash It’s time to pack away heavy, wintry hues and lighten the mood of your home with crisp, white pieces. Updating can be as simple as placing a candle by the bathtub and replacing your doona set to investing in some sturdy white statement pieces. After all, nothing evokes images of warm afternoons and salty seabreezes like a white cushioned cane chair beckoning you from the balcony. Pina colada, anyone?

Homemaker “Hudson” Cushion $8, Kmart p 5538 5288

Iris fragranced candle $42.95, Crabtree & Evelyn p 5578 5501

Clean: Wash tea towels regularly and dry thoroughly, preferably in the sun. Delegate: Designate different tea towels to different jobs like dish drying, hand drying or for handling hot food.

home style Old-school, new-school or somewhere in between. When it comes to decking out your home, which one are you?

eclectic You like: the best of both worlds. You fancy old-school pieces but like to mix it up with bright colours and modern touches. You like the chicness of contemporary pieces but prefer to warm them with gentle lighting and homey touches. You should: Choose pieces made with both traditional and modern materials. Soften modern furnishings with lamps and brighten up bathrooms with limes, purples and orange. Try: Villa and Hut, Loot Homewares, King of Knives.

modern

VUE “Ione” entertainment unit $1299, Myer p 5595 8100

tr aditional You like: big sturdy pieces and you appreciate finely crafted woodworking. You’re all about vintage pieces and antiques and you’re not shy about placing a huge gilded mirror in the hallway. Think four-poster beds, draping blinds and claw-footed chairs. You should: Keep your main pieces the focus of attention. Collect and display old books, photo frames and memorabilia but avoid overdoing it and causing clutter. Try crisp white linen in the bedroom and pretty flora in the bathroom. Try: Myer, Adairs, Bed Bath N Table.

You like: Simple, strong lines with minimal accessories. You’re into smooth surfaces, right-angled corners and love the idea of low-standing television cabinets and beds. This look suits homes with tiled floors and great lighting, especially from downlights.

Shabby Chic small side table $135, Loot Homewares p 5570 2444

You should: Look for pieces made from shiny materials (think stainless steel, glass or chrome). Instead of accessorising lavishly, invest in one piece of contemporary art and place it under a strong white light. Try kitchenware with strong edges and modern shapes. Try: Country Road, Holy Sheet, Earthborn.

entertainer’s Delight It’s time to invite friends over and head outdoors. But where do you start when it comes to summer entertaining?

Image from Eating In by Philip Johnson, published by Murdoch Books $59.95

What comes to mind when you think of summer? Sand? Sunscreen? Bikinis? Pineapple? Prawns? Sarsaparilla? Queensland summers are made for entertaining, but so many of us are stuck in the snags-on-the-barbie-with-a-greensalad rut. Philip Johnson, Queensland chef and author of Eating In: Food to Share From the E’cco Kitchen writes, “Lay strips of prosciutto over slices of melon or slivers of piquant blue cheese and chunks of juicy nectarine to get you started.” His book is full of new exciting dishes as well as proposed menus for entertaining and tips on how to do it properly. Philip recommends venturing a little further than the back deck this summer, which makes sense with our sunkissed climate. Why not head to the park, the beach or even rediscover the grassy patch just a little further down the backyard? Throw a rug under a tree, grab an ice-bucket complete with sparkling rosé, and enjoy lunch in the breeze. Philip writes, “As the days start to grow longer, the nights become warmer and the markets fill with spring greens and tender lamb. Get inspired to mark the end of winter with a late lunch and make the most of the sun’s warmth, eating outdoors with friends as the afternoon turns to evening.” Philip notes the importance of selecting produce that’s in season. At the moment, you’ll find HR Petty Farm Fresh Fruit & Veg brimming with fresh spring and summer produce, ready to form the basis of your meal. Be sure to pick recipes that make the most of in-season produce like melons and rhubarb and always use fresh, crispy bread from a local baker such as Goldstein’s Bakery.

For new recipes and menu ideas plus more tips on how to be the perfect entertainer, pick up Philip’s book from Dymocks p 5572 2411 or QBD the Bookshop p 5554 5177.
