Party Hair Tips

Achieve Alterna Ambassador Katie Holmes’ glam party look this season. For this boho curl look: Firstly shampoo hair and dry using a combination of our Alterna Bamboo Weightless Whipped Mousse, and Plumping Strand Expand to amplify volume. Once hair is completely dried, pick up your Cloud Nine curling wand. Wrap hair around wand and hold for approximately five seconds and release. Work your way up the hair taking large sections. Once hair is all curled split your hair straight down the middle. Grab the very ends of your hair in a ponytail and shake it. Repeat to both sides. This shaking motion allows the curl to break up and give it a more natural look. For added volume at the roots apply Alterna Bamboo Root Blast to the dry style hair and massage in. This is your magic trick for instant and long lasting volume. Lastly, slightly run fingers through hair for a more dishevelled look. Finish with anti-humidity hairspray. Stelios Papas Cloud Nine Wand $279, Bamboo Volume Plumping Strand Expand $32.95

Tips by Kristie Clarke, Stelios Papas Toowong p 3371 9011

under cover secrets for a flawless silhouette, carefully choose your underwear. Shapewear will make you look slimmer and avoid VPL. Bring your dress when trying on underwear and make use of the shop mirrors – likely to be better than yours at home.

2. Apply white or light coloured eyeliner to the inner rim or waterline of the eye. This will open up the look. 3. Smoky eyes don’t always have to be black – it’s a technique more than a colour, so get adventurous with blending shimmer.

4. don’t apply eye liner in one motion. load the brush then start at the outer corner, reload and continue to the inner corner for a smooth continous line. 5. To make eye liner last longer apply your eyeshadow on top for longevity on a night out. tips from terry white chemists

go neutral THIS CHRISTMAS gone are the days where the only colours to be seen for Christmas were the traditional red, green and white. families are being more experimental with their festive decor by dressing their trees and homes with rich palettes of purple and gold, or even our favourite - neutral. earthy tones perfectly complement elegant white and gold. get creative with your Christmas table setting this year and decorate it with beautiful crystal and gold coloured ornaments. To break up the richness, place bunches of ivory and green flowers between serving ware and place settings. It’ll add the perfect finish to your table. Make sure you use neutral coloured vases to keep the emphasis on your blooms.

Festive shaped plates and platters are a great idea.

The biggest upside to this chic trend is that the colours allow you to utilise the decorations all year round, making them the perfect versatile investment for yourself or a lucky loved one!

honey-glazeD ham

from Village Meats

7 kg (15 lb) smoked, cooked leg ham honey glaZe 125 g (41/2 oz/2/3 cup) soft brown sugar 3 tablespoons honey 1 tablespoon hot english mustard preheat the oven to 180°C (350°f/gas 4). Cut a line through the thick rind of the leg ham, 6 cm (21/2 inches) from the shank end so you can easily lift the rind. To remove the rind, run your thumb around the edge, under the rind and carefully pull back, easing your hand under the rind between the fat and the rind. with a sharp knife, lightly score the fat to form a diamond pattern. do not cut all the way through to the ham or the fat will fall off during cooking. To make the honey glaze, mix the sugar, honey and mustard together in a bowl. Spread half the glaze over the ham with a palette knife or the back of a spoon and press a clove into the centre of each diamond. put the ham on a rack in a deep baking dish and pour 500 ml (17 fl oz/2 cups) water into the dish. Cover the ham and dish securely with greased foil and cook for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush or spread the remaining glaze over the ham. Increase the heat to 210°C (415°f/gas 6–7) and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until the surface is lightly caramelized. Set aside for 15 minutes before carving. serves 20 village Meats p 3870 9649
