Jane Iredale Eyeliner – Mystikol

Jane Iredale Eyeliner – Mystikol

If you’re familiar with the double-ended Jane Iredale Mystikol powdered eyeliner and highlighter, which you had to click into the cap to gather the product,mystikol-old then you’re going to LOVE the revamped much simpler to use version!

The updated Mystikol includes a perfectly sized built-in brush, which makes lining or creating a smudged-out smoky eye so easy. The product itself is a lightweight, long-lasting cream to powder formula that doesn’t crease. mystikol-newIt’s available in four rich colours.

Granted, my video skills are still a work in progress, but below is a video showing how simple the new Mystikol is to apply. Stocked at Nautilus, €25, contact us to order yours. We’re also happy to ship within Ireland.

Jane Iredale GreatShape Eyebrow Kit

Jane Iredale GreatShape Eyebrow Kit

This gem is easily in my top three favourite Jane Iredale products – the GreatShape Eyebrow Kit. When I was *much* younger I had big, bushy Brooke Shields-eque eyebrows. Sadly, this was in the 80’s when no one wanted brows like that. Over time, I tweezed mine into a thin, patchy oblivion.

When I did my makeup training with Jane Iredale, I discovered the joy that is their eyebrow kit. You can easily create your own very natural looking eyebrows, and I was shocked at the difference this quick step to my makeup routine made. I felt much more put together.

jane-iredale-great-shape-brow-kit-at-nautilus-dublinThe Jane Iredale product description sums it up, “Water-resistant mineral-rich brow powder glides on to add color, depth, and highlights. Brow wax botanical formula nourishes and protects. Refined and soft, with no sticky residue. Travel-size rose gold mirrored compact and dual-ended applicator.”

I’ve used my kit steadily for a year now, and there’s still loads left, so don’t be put off by the travel-size reference above. The kits come in brunette or blond and we have them in stock at Nautilus Dublin!

Baby Massage Dublin

Baby Massage Dublin

I’m so lucky that I love what I do! One of the things that brings me the most joy is teaching baby massage classes. Every five weeks I get to meet a new group of babies and parents as they embark on an important and new chapter in life. They’re getting to know each other, new parents are learning how to adapt to a massively wonderful and stressful life change, and baby massage can play an important support role in that. Here are some benefits of baby massage:

Nautilus Dublin is in a great location if you’re looking for baby massage classes in Dublin. We’re conveniently based in Dublin 3 and handy to Marino, Fairview, Drumcondra and Clontarf. We’re very close to public transportation and there is parking just outside our door.

If you have private insurance, most plans will cover up to €100 of the costs of our five week course. I supply massage oil, handouts, tea/coffee and snacks! Get in touch to sign up for our next session.

The Beauty of Skincare and Makeup

The Beauty of Skincare and Makeup

This time of the year is HARSH on our skin. Cold windy days, indoor heating, warm days (?!), dehydration, extra makeup, too tired to remove the makeup, late nights, stress, hormones, nutrition or lack thereof. . it takes a toll on our bodies. The first place this shows is on our lovely faces.

There are simple solutions to hide what’s happening, but you have to treat the cause not only the effect. As you can see, I’m tired & dehydrated.

The Jane Iredale mineral makeup range is a natural, gentle way to camouflage this. Yay! Jane Iredale offers a number of foundations, including their hyaluronic acid rich liquid minerals to help restore the look of radiance by plumping and hydrating the skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and evening out skin tone.

before-and-after
To really help rejuvenate the skin, facials are an integral part of an effective skincare routine. Products you use at home help to support the deeper work of a facial and give you longer lasting benefits.

The picture on the left is from yesterday, the one on the right is from today after a facial. The texture of my skin is much softer and smoother, the colouring is even and the redness reduced. Plus, I feel much more relaxed.

before-after-facial
While makeup and facials help to keep us looking our best during this time of the year, don’t forget we still have to eat well, drink plenty of water and get our sleep! It’s tough to find the balance so do the best you can. Be kind to yourself.

If you’d like to come in for a Jane Iredale consultation and foundation colour match or book your own facial, please get in touch! You’ll feel much better – I know I did!

Pregnancy Reflexology

Pregnancy Reflexology

I recently received a wonderful email from a pregnancy client who was due to come in for a pampering pedicure after having been in for several reflexology treatments. She ended up cancelling her pedicure for the best possible reason – because (yay!) she went into labour!

She gave me permission to share her feedback, “After reflexology treatment on Tuesday and long walk on Wednesday I went into labor on Thursday and “H” was born few minutes after midnight on Friday. It was very nice birthing experience this time. I am very happy I went into labor naturally. I think 7 km walk I made and reflexology treatment contributed to it :)”

Receiving reflexology treatments while pregnant brings with it many benefits such as reduced morning/all day sickness, relief of heartburn & indigestion, constipation & haemorrhoids, relief of low back pain, sciatica, and symphysis pubis diastasis.

Antenatal Reflexology can’t bring on labour but it helps to prepare the body for labour by balancing the systems of the body, especially the endocrine system, which governs the labour process. The length of labour can be greatly reduced by having regular reflexology sessions in the weeks prior to the estimated delivery date.

Reflexology can also help boost energy levels and promote better sleep.

Reflexology during pregnancy is recommended by the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, Dublin.  As one last added benefit, this treatment is usually covered by many private insurers. Be sure to check your plan for specific details.
