Are you a Ceramide or Prevage Lady? Kiana Beauty's Elizabeth Arden Expert Shares her Tips for Choosing.

29 May 2017

Ceramide vs Prevage Ageing is inevitable and although none of us look forward to it, there's something absolutely beautiful about the laugh lines that come from a life well lived.

Along with these however, comes the unavoidable loss of elasticity, dullness, dryness, pigmentation and the wrinkles.

It IS possible to repair and improve the appearance of your skin as you get older, so that you can keep it looking as youthful as possible.

Kiana Beauty's Elizabeth Arden expert, Liz, gives us her tips on how to choose between Ceramide and Prevage, the two revolutionary anti-ageing skincare ranges available from Elizabeth Arden.

We'll help you decide whether you're a Ceramide or Prevage Lady, or perhaps a bit of both.

Liz, Elizabeth Arden Expert


Want to firm, lift, hydrate and plump your skin?  Ceramide is for you! 

Ceramide is a luxurious range which keeps skin looking youthful by locking in moisture and protecting it from environmental aggressors.

My top three picks from this range include:


Want to address pigmentation, discolouration, dryness and fine lines? Then Prevage is for you.  

Prevage contains Idebenone which is the most powerful antioxidant to address the visible signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage and discolouration.

This range will improve your skin tone and re-energise the skin, resulting in a firmer, less lined and smoother look. Now who doesn’t want that?

My top three picks from the Prevage range include:


One more must-have product, which is neither Ceramide or Prevage is....

Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster

Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster

Superstart will maximise the benefits of your Ceramide or Prevage skincare regimen. It will help your skin to renew and restore itself at the surface layer so it is smooth, fresh and radiant.  This is a staple in my anti-ageing regimen.  I trust that you'll love it just as much as I do.


If you have a mixture of concerns that aren't addressed by one skincare range on its own, it's fine to mix and match between the Ceramide and Prevage range  You can create your very own personalised skincare regime.  If you want to know about any Elizabeth Arden products, simply contact us via our Ask An Expert page here, or send us an email to hello@kianabeauty.com.au, and one of our beauty experts will be happy to help.

What's New from Elizabeth Arden?

18 May 2017

Elizabeth Arden was a legendary innovator and a tireless entrepreneur. She established the American beauty industry a century ago, setting up her first eponymous salon in New York City.

Elizabeth Arden's fundamental belief was that makeup and skincare products should not mask the skin, and that beauty should be an intelligent cooperation between science and nature, in order to develop a woman's finest natural assets.

Elizabeth Arden lived by her mantra "To be beautiful is the birthright of every woman."

Today, the Elizabeth Arden brand continues to be uncompromising in their vision to create the new and absolute best products.  

We catch up with our own Elizabeth Arden expert, Liz, to find out what's new from this quintessentially American brand.


Liz, tell us what's new and exciting from Elizabeth Arden?

love the versatility and colour stories in the Elizabeth Arden Eye Shadow Trios.

YOU get to decide which eye shadow trios to add to the Refillable Little Black Compact (sold separately) to create your very own customised palette for endless makeup looks. No more wasted shades that you'll never wear.

I actually can't pick a favourite shade... I like to mix and match them all.  There are six palettes to choose from.

While we're on the subject of eyes, tell us about the Elizabeth Arden Lasting Impression Mascara and Statement Brow Defining Gel

I'm big on plump lashes and groomed brows and these two new products from Elizabeth Arden don't disappoint.

The Lasting Impression Mascara is long-lasting, smudge proof and won't flake.

It results in lashes that appear curled, plumped and defined.

The Statement Brow Defining Gel is a tinted gel that is great for grooming, filling in and defining your arches.

It is smudge proof and lasts for up to 12 hours without fading. It's available in four different shades, so there's something to suit everyone.

Morning essentials:  Strong coffee, plump lashes with Lasting Impression Mascara and groomed brows with Statement Brow Defining Gel

Tell us about the NEW Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum.

These capsules are my secret weapon to improving the appearance of my skin.

They support the skin's collagen production, resulting in visibly firmer skin.

They also visibly improve skin radiance, enhance the skin's hydration and revitalise and re-texturise the look of skin.

The Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum are loaded with goodness, including Vitamin E, Sea Fennel extract and Tsubaki Oil which is high in omega-9 essential fatty acids - all of which help to improve elasticity and minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

How to Apply Makeup When Wearing Glasses

7 October 2016

How to Apply Makeup When Wearing Glasses

As a glasses wearer, it took me a while to feel comfortable with the attention that wearing glasses drew to my face. It took me even longer to find a new makeup style that worked harmoniously with my frames to achieve an elegant, everyday makeup look.

At Kiana Beauty, several of our team members are glasses wearers. We understand that the struggle is real. Below, our glasses-wearing team of experts share their makeup tips based on many years of their own personal experience.

If you are significantly vision impaired, use a magnifying mirror when applying your makeup.

Glasses will make your fine lines and wrinkles more visible to others, particularly if you wear magnifiers.

We highly recommend adding a comprehensive eye cream to your skincare routine, such as the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II which will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine Lines and dark circles, making your eyes look younger and more vibrant.

 Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II

Long-wearing makeup won't slide off the bridge of your nose or beneath the frames of your glasses. If your glasses commonly leave indentation marks on your nose, apply concealer onto the bridge of your nose instead of foundation as concealer creases less than foundation. Set any foundation or concealer you apply with powder for extra staying power. 

Glasses can amplify dark circles and puffy eyes, so under-eye concealer is essential! For a brighter, fresher looking eye area, we recommend applying concealer under the eye all the way to the inner corner of the eye, near the nose.  

When wearing glasses, you will look and feel more polished when you define your eyes and brows more than you would if you weren't wearing glasses.

This will balance the frames.

Apply eyeliner all across the top and bottom lash lines, staying as close as possible to the lashes.

If you wear wire frames, you can get away with a thinner line.

If you have thicker frames, draw a thicker line on the top and bottom lash line to achieve balance. 

Apply waterproof mascara to open up the eye area and avoid smudging against the lenses.

Wearing glasses draws attention to your brows, so ensure that they are well groomed and be sure to fill in any gaps with your favourite brow powder or pencil.

Consider the Frame You Are Wearing

Wire Frame

You can pretty much wear whatever you like in terms of eyeshadow or lip colour as a wire frame is understated and looks harmonious with little effort.

Coloured Frame

Coloured frames look great with neutral-coloured eyeshadow.  However, to prevent your eyes from getting lost within the bold frames, we suggest creating some depth with two colours.

Apply a light, neutral-coloured eyeshadow that compliments your skin tone from the lash line to the brow bone.

This acts as the base.

Then apply a neutral shade of medium depth on the outer corners of the eye or along the crease. Then blend, blend, blend.

We love a neutral lip with a coloured frame as it won't compete with your fabulous frames, but helps to pull the look together.

Pretty Easy Eye Palette

Clinique Pretty Easy Eye Palette

Customise your own look with the eight shades of long-wearing eyeshadows.

Tortoise Shell

If you're wearing bold frames in a natural colour, we recommend keeping the eyes subtle yet defined, and creating balance with some colour on the lip.

 


The team at Kiana Beauty hope you have a whole lot of fun finding the makeup style that best suits your glasses and personality.  Need more help or have a question?  Feel free to use our Ask an Expert feature for individualised advice on your skincare or beauty needs.

Incredible New Products from Elizabeth Arden

8 September 2016

Elizabeth Arden have recently released some amazing new products that have absolutely wowed us.

These hardworking products will leave you with skin that looks radiant and feels amazing.

Liz, our Elizabeth Arden expert tells us why she will personally be adding these products to her daily routine.

You can thank her later for your flawless looking skin.

Liz, Elizabeth Arden Expert


This is the first-of-its-kind in skincare. It acts as a shield to protect the skin against pollution and UV and contains DNA Enzyme Complex™ to strengthen the skin.

Apply it after your moisturiser in the morning and it will help your skin look younger and appear more even in tone. Elizabeth Arden's Prevage City Smart is oil-free and suitable for sensitive skin.  It also has a universal tint that gives you immediate radiance.

Now you're ready to take on the day.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart with Sunscreens Hydrating Shield


This is the best Elizabeth Arden makeup I have personally experienced.  It is a treatment and a foundation.

It contains Idebenone, an anti-ageing antioxidant complex that protects and repairs against free radical damage and Vitamin C which correct the skin's appearance for a firmer, clearer look.

It feels like satin on the skin and will flawlessly even out your skin tone, blur imperfections and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a youthful, radiant look.

Available in seven different shades, there's a colour to suit most skin tones.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Foundation SPF 30


This powerful eye serum will transform the look of the skin around your eyes, while protecting this delicate area from environmental aggressors.

The Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Eye Serum helps to target dark circles and puffiness and minimises the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet.

It will also brighten the look of the skin under the eye area, making your eyes look more revitalised so that you look more fresh-faced.

This fabulous eye serum forms a non-negotiable part of my morning routine as I find that it immediately cools and soothes the eye area.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Eye Serum

This simple trick can make you look more awake in the mornings

15 May 2016

It's cold.  Our necklines are getting higher and hemlines longer.   Our legs become fuzzy and we can definitely forget about bronzed skin for the time being.  We drag ourselves out of bed, look in the bathroom mirror, see the face of someone exhausted looking back at us and wonder how we are going to face the day. Can you relate to this?

Liz, our Elizabeth Arden expert does not relate to this.

She's chirpy in the morning regardless of how much sleep she's had and she always looks fresh-faced, alive and ready to take on the day.

Liz shares her number one tip with us.


Liz, tell us what your secret is to looking awake and lively all day?

I wear mascara every day.  Even on the days I don't leave the house.   Mascara opens up the eye area and makes you look less tired and more alive.  Mascara makes everyone look younger.  It also makes everyone feel better when they look in the mirror and they see someone more awake and younger-looking, looking back.

Liz, there are so many mascaras on the market, how do we pick which one to buy?
Once you start using Elizabeth Arden products you won't look back.  Their products are so gentle on the skin.  This is what you want around the eye area.  I love the new Grand Entrance Dramatic Volume Length and Lift Mascara by Elizabeth Arden because it:


- Separates lashes.  It contains naturally-derived oil esters for a clump-free definition
- Creates volume and lift with a lash body complex that locks onto the lashes like a
  magnet
- Instantly creates a dramatic false lash effect with it's fancy curved brush
- Conditions and plumps lashes with rice bran esters which are great for overall lash health.

Are there any other mascara tips you can share with us?
Yes!  I recommend that 15 - 50 year olds wear black mascara.  More mature ladies should use a brown mascara because it looks softer around the eyes.

Apply one to two coats of mascara in the morning, and you're ready to go... wherever the day takes you.
