first_imgLIFESTYLE: Less is more when it comes to make-up in the summer.A dewy look can easily turn to an oil-slick look as make-up melts and eyeliner slides across the face as the day wears on.FIVE essential products to avoid this happening include: 1. Primer- this is applied after moisturiser and before foundation. A primer gives a good base for foundation and helps to maintain a lasting good.It also helps to give longer foundation coverage.This Stay Flawless product is advertised as an über-long-lasting primer but at €35.50, it is quite expensive. Garnier 5 Second Perfect Blur Primer 30mlI would avoid this if you are prone to an oily complexion as it can give a ‘too shiny’ look. It’s currently on offer at Cara Pharmacy at €12.79.This Rimmel Product is a good option for oily-skins. Priced at €8.25, it eliminates shine and smooths the skin.2. Set foundation with translucent powder. This also helps to maintain coverage. Try and use one with a high SPF. Sometimes changing to use a powder make-up or foundation doesn’t have oil as an ingredient also helps to reduce shiny complexions.3. Use a waterproof eyeliner.4. Apply a waterproof mascara. 5. Lipstick can appear a little heavy in the summer, a pop of colour from a vibrant gloss stands out just as much.LIFESTYLE: STAY-PUT MAKE-UP IN THE SUMMER was last modified: July 24th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal Daily LifestyleLIFESTYLE: STAY-PUT MAKE-UP IN THE SUMMERlast_img read more

first_img Manchester City star Davild Silva plays in the snow 1 Richard Scudamore has responded to Sam Allardyce’s call for a winter break by revealing his belief it has “more prospects than I can remember”.He also said, however, that “something has to give” for one to be agreed, and that an agreement cannot be reached until the next Premier League broadcasting deal is discussed in late 2017 at the earliest.On Monday – Allardyce’s first day as England manager – the 61-year-old said a mid-season break “would help the Premier League and us at international level if we could achieve that”.FA chief executive Martin Glenn recognised that one could not be in place before the 2019/20 season. Premier League executive chairman Scudamore has added the organisation remains “open-minded” to it, but that there remain numerous hurdles to overcome.“There are more prospects for it than I can remember,” said the 56-year-old at the launch of Premier League 2, a competition that will succeed Under-21s football for the 24 teams involved.“The Football League and the FA, Martin Glenn particularly, wants to see it happen,” added Scudamore.“We are having discussions but it’s not easy due to the calendar of different competitions. If it can practically work we are up for listening to it. We are open-minded and keen if we can make it work. We have widened it out to the stakeholders with what is possible.“We all know what we have to do to create space and something has to give. It would have to be decided by (the) next TV market (agreement), which is sometime end of 2017, and start of 2018.”last_img read more

first_imgA judge has told a Falcarragh man he needs to get straight ‘A’s in his probation report when he comes before him again or he could face jail.Manus Doohan, 19, of Ballina, appeared at Falcarragh District Court charged with a number of offences including assault and causing criminal damage.They included striking the owner of Josie’s Bar, Josie Gallagher, and also putting a gas cylinder through the window of a taxi-rank after asking local Gardai to arrest him. On another occasion, Doohan, the youngest of five boys, was found in a ditch by Gardai and claimed he had been the victim of a hit and run and was seriously injured.But when Garda traveled to Letterkenny General Hospital to check on him, they discovered he had not been injured at all.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher told the court that drink was the problem with his client but that he had been dry since last July and hadn’t gone out since.The court was told that Doohan was facing a total of 23 charges before the court.Judge Paul Kelly said a number of those charges related to offences which were committed on bail for other offences.“I heard all this in April 2011 and I decided he was a young man worthy of being given an opportunity to see how things go but within a month he is engaged in assault and public order matters.“You are building up a lot of trouble for yourelf and given numerous opportunities to adjust your behaviour but you seem determined to throw it back in our faces. You are on bail and it doesn’t seem to be changing,” said Judge Kelly.He adjourned the matter until April 17th but warned Doohan it was his final chance.“I am strongly considering a custodial sentence for the offence committed on bail. If his behaviour is good I might be persuaded to suspend it but depends on him getting straights A’s in his probation report and that he is doing something about alcohol,” warned the judge.* Comments on this article are closed as the case is ongoing.JUDGE TELLS FALCARRAGH MAN HE NEEDS STRAIGHT ‘A’s OR FACE JAIL was last modified: January 17th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assaultcourtcriminal damageFalcarraghJudge Paul KellyManus Doohanlast_img read more

Jeffrey Schrock, 38, was in serious condition at Sacred Heart Medical Center. The driver of the other vehicle was hospitalized in satisfactory condition. The eight-student Mennonite school in Chewelah, attended by three of the dead children, will be closed the rest of the week, said Dan Hertzler, who spoke for the nine families of the small religious community. “They have been a real and active part of the congregation since they were born,” Hertzler said of the five children who were killed.
