The industry is presently a buzz with the annual virgin Melbourne fashion festival currently taking place with a multitude of fun and exciting events happening all over this beautiful city. It is regarded as a celebration of fashions, arts, ideas, beauty and creative on a level that can only be showcased on no other stage than that of a run way. With a bevy of beauties strutting their unnatural superhuman looks down the podium as the designers inner vision personified, we often dig deeper into our minds to ponder “how do these models look just so damn good”?
Since the beginning of the industry itself, models have been using secret tricks and tips to stay one step ahead in the beauty steaks of us lay people.
If you are in beauty, you would have heard the story’s about models using a hemorrhoid cream to smooth and depuff even the most party weary eyes. Well, the stories are true, but it has nothing to do with the anaesthetic or anti piles effect the cream has. It works because of one potent active ingredient called BIODYNES and it’s only one brand of the cream and it isn’t available in Australia!
BIODYNES are a Live Yeast Cell Derivative (LYCD) and are also known as Tissue Respiratory Factor due to the ability to increase oxygen uptake in cells. Their discovery is hugely significant for both wound healing and for skin regeneration. freezeframe have featured this ingredient in the new formulation of their improved BOOST SERUM!
But the amazing immediate depuffing, and the powerful skin regenerative action of Tissue Respiratory factor were only a part of the reason the scientist at freezeframe chose this unique active.
Tissue Respiratory factor is so powerful they use it on burns victims to regenerate the most severely damaged skin. Our Founder and CEO Sonia Amoroso says that “For our advanced Boost formulation, we were most excited by the fact that it makes other actives perform even better! It works as an amplifier, or a “BOOST” to increase the benefits you get from your layered treatment (applied directly after the serum). In a nutshell, it makes our treatment products even more powerful”.
They also have an incredible ability to act as an amplifier – a unique property that actually increases the effectiveness of active ingredients in products you layer over the top – so they actually BOOST the performance of other skincare treatments.
And that’s just 1 of 3 powerful additions to the new BOOST SERUM formulation
Bio-lifting and volumizing ingredients have also been added to lift and firm sagging skin or eyelids and combat the tissue loss that results in hollow eyelids, A-frame lid hooding and darkness in the corners and under the eyes. This effect is so powerful it can even work to smooth and fill nasolabial folds.
Botox alternative peptides also add to the anti aging cocktail for dramatic, targeted results on even the deepest wrinkles.
This next generation serum
- Increases Oxygen uptake
- Stimulates cell generation and regeneration
- Boosts collagen and elastin
- Stimulates wound healing (great to prevent and improve scarring)
- Reduces Eye puffiness
- Lifts and firms upper and lower eyelid skin
- Fills in sunken eye lids and sockets
- Reduces wrinkle appearance
- Amplifies active ingredients making them perform even better
Airless Tube Technology with Rollerball a game changer
The first of its kind, the new airless tube technology allows multiple application options. Previously, a massaging roller could only work for targeted application with a tube or bottle squeezed or held upside down to release product onto the rollerball. The airless technology has all of the benefits of targeted application and massage, making it ideal for eye and specific problem areas, but it has an actuator pump which releases serum through 5 separate orifices so that you can pump the serum onto your hand for all over face use.
So whilst you may be left pondering what else those gorgeous models do to maintain their high flying lifestyles whilst still looking like goddess’ at least you have their secret to depuffed, youthful and radiant looking eyes and skin AND now you have the perfect product to achieve the very same if not better results and look!

Why not dress the part this St Patrick’s Day and do it in style! The pieces I have chosen are basically a modern twist on the classic green & gold – 2017 calls for olive green & rose gold.
I love the way olive green looks on all skin tones and having those rose gold accents in an outfit really complements the look as a whole! The satin & metallic textures within this outfit really work well for a night time glam look. The reflective surfaces from the clutch, bangle & heels really pop in this outfit. And by pairing them with satin it will have everyone doing the double take when you walk in the room simply gleaming with light!
Making sure the nails are matching and are in theme is the key to having your outfit flow. Many forget to pay attention to the smaller details but those details are the difference between an outfit looking complete or being a complete fail!
Always mix & match and be sure to carefully plan your looks whether your focus is on a statement piece of jewellery, a wow-factor pair of pumps or a pop of colour from your lipstick – be creative because what you wear is an expression of your personality!
Now I know not many people would gravitate to an army green lippy – but I urge you to step out of your comfort zone and give this baby a try! Believe it or not – this Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in colour ‘Dirty Money’ actually looks ah-mazing on fair skin, olive skin and even deep skin tones.
And I know, you’re probably thinking, who would wear a cap during the evening?… Well for one, this cap is a stylish one with no branding and totally covered in that gorgeous satin finish. Two, the cap is a modern take on the St Patrick’s Irish Leprechaun hat (it’s much more stylish if you ask me!). And lastly, you only have to hop on Instagram, or walk into your local fashion boutique to see that silk/leather/suede/denim caps are totally on trend right now.
Everyone from Rihanna to Kylie Jenner is rocking a cap, and is not limited to only rocking it with sportswear – but also with evening wear!
I’m a huge fan of BB Creams for a few reasons. First, how easy they are to apply, the way they make your skin look and the benefits they present to your skin. Making it my personal mission to test as many as I can, when I came across freezeframe’s BB BLUR I was intrigued and had to try it. Read More
