O JU CE ADEP FLO R E N r de un Fo MDMflow
MDMflow is the vision of Florence Adepoju, a 24-year-old cosmetic scientist. By the time Florence had graduated from The London College of Fashion she had started making lipsticks for friends in her parents’ garden shed. Her first line of lipsticks, in beautiful bullet-shaped cases, were a runaway success and she’s followed them with a whole new take on lipstick – the Liquid Matte Lipsticks –
highly-pigmented creamy liquid formulas which go on with a wand (only one sweep required) and coat the lip with a layer of soft satin-like velvet. The finish is so slick and defined, it is as if the lip has been air-brushed to perfection and an injection of conditioning properties marula oil, shea butter, papaya fruit extract and vitamin E make these lipsticks incredibly soft and flexible.

What makes a great makeup? Two things: formula and experimentation. While the key to success is good method, it’s vital to keep trying new things – new colours and techniques – to keep your makeup working well for you. It’s a bit like baking a cake. You follow a recipe and customise with your own decoration. Ready to finesse three key looks in four easy steps?

Created in 2008 by Simon and Caroline Cavill, Bee Good is the only premium skincare you’ll find that uses British beeswax, honey and propolis. Simon keeps beehives in the orchards around his Hampshire home – he actively promotes the security of British bees and teaches bee-keeping – and Caroline came up with the clever idea of using their excess honey
and beeswax to create powerful reparative skincare, honey – being full of anti-ageing anti-oxidants and propolis – having natural antiseptic qualities. Bee Good is a soughtafter, award-winning brand, and we are thrilled to be able to bring you its beautiful hero multi-task mask which works like magic on a thirsty complexion, body and scalp as well as hands and cuticles.

eil Roques ON under Therapie Fo
Named by Vogue as one of the top 10 aromatherapists in the world, Michelle Roques-O’Neil is fascinated by aromatherapy’s power to heal, her focus being on the long-term wellbeing benefits of these formulas. “Healing, especially through the senses of smell and touch, has always been my passion,” she explains. “Balancing the mind and helping the body release tensions frees us to experience life
as less stressful and more magical.” Her products – celebrated for being powerful and refined – are inspired by her hands-on experience and deep knowledge of physical and emotional healing disciplines. It’s a modern alchemist’s aromatherapy range which, along with essential oils, harnesses the power of natural wonders like Himalayan pink salt, crystal powders and ground gemstones to enhance product potency.

with Nicky Clarke
Haircare products which work for both hair and scalp are a rare and wonderful thing – most stop your scalp itching but make your hair feel like straw. This little chemical-free regime, however, rises to the challenge extraordinarily well. When used together regularly they maintain hair shine and softness without making your scalp irritated, tight, dry or itchy. Prepare to be surprised.
Nicky spent two years perfecting his luxury range which we launched as our first haircare line with the intention of bringing you salon-fresh feel good results with every application. If your hair is dry and a little dull, Nicky’s moisturising products will faithfully restore lustre and softness if you use them consistently. The spray, directed at the roots when blow drying, adds extra lift.

RUDOE L AU R A der Evolve Foun
We can’t count the number of times Stylists and customers have asked Kate to find haircare for sensitive scalps – there is big demand for non-irritating shampoos and conditioners, in other words without harsh chemicals in them, for sufferers of troubled scalps, psoriasis and dermatitis. Evolve, a natural brand developed by Laura Rudoe and Violaine Bargues (who are also
behind the brilliant S5 Skincare), uses natural sugar and coconut cleansers, organic shea butter and baobab (a fabulous natural conditioner) to care for hair without upsetting the scalp. Evolve is the first sensitive scalp haircare brand Kate has found that does this without making hair look like straw – it performs like magic for both, which is a challenge to achieve.

LOOKING FOR A CHANGE OF CAREER?
NEED SOME INSPIRATION AND A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT TO DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS?
MyShowcase loves beauty and entrepreneurialism and our vision is to combine these to make beauty gold by creating flexible opportunities for women to run work-from-home businesses as Stylists. Our line-up of independent beauty brands, which we regularly add to with new products, are sold via our Stylists. As an independent Stylist, MyShowcase enables you to run your own successful beauty sales business on your terms. We introduce exciting new beauty brands to MyShowcase throughout the year. So as a Stylist you’ll get to see and sell the best new independent beauty brands. You are exactly the person who makes MyShowcase what it is – a community of inspiring women united by a love for beauty and desire to work to their own agenda. You don’t need any previous experience in beauty or sales to be a Stylist, and it’s easy to get started – we give you the training and tools and away you go! Becoming a MyShowcase Stylist makes great business sense as so many women have already discovered. On a personal note, this is a brilliant opportunity because, as well as the commission you earn as a Stylist, you earn commission on your own purchases of beauty products through MyShowcase. Become a Stylist today at www.myshowcase.com or contact us on 020 7384 9600 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org It is illegal for any trading scheme promoter to persuade others to pay for goods and services by promising benefits from signing others up to the scheme. Do not be persuaded that large earnings can be achieved without substantial effort and hard work.
How does it work? The average British woman spends £100,000 on beauty products in her lifetime! And yet many of us are overwhelmed by choice, not sure what’s the perfect fit and stuck in a beauty rut.
As a Stylist, you offer your friends, family, neighbours and connections a Personal Beauty Shopping Service. Welcome to savvy shopping like a beauty VIP.
