Events 41 maltatoday, Sunday, 19 OctOber 2014 For the first time, the Chanel Makeup Creation Studio de- velops a loose powder founda- tion and an accessory, the mi- ni KABUKI brush, united in a case that holds all the secrets of a naturally luminous and amazingly even complexion. Like a photographer's light box, Vitalumière Loose Pow- der Foundation offers remark- able sensoriality and reveals the five secrets of an enhanced complexion with a natural glow. A new beauty step for a sensation of instant comfort. First secret: A powder? A fluid? Both! On first contact: a texture with the evanescence of a loose powder which offers the finish of a fluid foundation for a natural second-skin effect without a hint of thickness. At the heart of the Vitalumi- ère Loose Powder Foundation formula lies a combination of two specific powders whose shape allows them to adhere to the skin surface with in- credible affinity. Enriched with a softening Canola oil derivative, the powder deliv- ers a sensation of comfort and protection all day long. Second secret: A radiantly effective formula A smoothing and blurring effect The combination of soft fo- cus powders, uniting small polymer microbeads and two different sizes of cellulose microbeads, fills surface ir- regularities and instantly smoothes the skin. Imperfec- tions are diminished and the skin texture is evened out (+55%) for a 100% natural ef- fect. A natural satiny glow At the heart of the innova- tion, Chanel Research creates a new generation of innova- tive pigments that combine the satiny radiance of mica powder with the diffuse light of "High Definition Light" pigments. White pearlescent pigments with red, green and blue re- flections (RGB) paired with small aluminum hydroxide "cushions" on their surface produce a soft and luminous reflection. The smooth and transparent appearance of the mica powder optimizes the light reflection of the high- lighting pigments to offer a glowing makeup result. These reflections are ensured by a good "white balance" with improved "colour" of the light reflected by the skin for a sub- tly evened out and luminous complexion. These "High Definition Light" pigments were added to give a warmer effect to the emitted light. Ex- pert artistry. Third secret: A magical brush This silky powder perfectly follows every curve of the face thanks to the mini kabuki brush. Its size, design, infi- nite softness and practicality make this a precious acces- sory that offers exceptional sensoriality. The brush and powder are excellent part- ners: the brush takes the de- sired amount of powder and sweeps it perfectly onto the skin in a sheer halo. Specifi- cally adapted to this product, it guarantees an adjustable makeup result with amazing coverage that looks incredibly natural. Fourth secret: A simple application technique Like a fluid foundation, Vitalumière Loose Powder Foundation glides on with light circular movements, from the middle of the face outwards, using the mini ka- buki brush. The complexion is even, smooth and luminous with a perfectly natural satiny glow. Le Blanc de Chanel A real complexion-per- fecting tool and a favorite amongst women and profes- sional makeup artists alike since its creation in 1985, Le Blanc de Chanel has become an essential beauty accessory. A universal makeup base that instantly lights up the com- plexion with a subtle halo of light. It illuminates the face as if by magic. Chanel is exclusively distributed by Alfred Gera & Sons Ltd Emirates SkyCargo strengthens Dubai's multi-modal logistics hub With the move of its freighters to DWC, Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has strengthened the link between Dubai International and DWC, through its trucking operations, reinforc- ing the city's multi-model logistics ca- pability as a growing and popular global cargo hub. Emirates SkyCargo launched its truck- ing operations on 1 May 2014 in tandem with the start of its freighter operates at DWC, and up until 1st September 2014 its fleet of 47 trucks has facilitated the tran- shipment of over 108,000 tonnes of vari- ous commodities from perishables to out- sized cargo between Dubai International and DWC, recording over 17,000 round trips, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. "Obviously ground transhipment re- quires the highest degree of care and spe- cial handling, from when the commodi- ties are offloaded, right through to when it's delivered and loaded. An operation like this can only go to plan with nothing less than total cooperation from everyone involved. Through a joint effort, we have created a strong link between the three main cargo points in Dubai with service quality remaining at high standard," said Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo. Enjoying a strategic location between East and West, and within 8 hours flying time of two thirds of the world's popula- tion, Dubai ranks sixth globally meas- ured by air cargo traffic. The emirate is one of the fastest growing cargo hubs in the world. Its central position, coupled with the growth of Emirates airline, and increased popularity of air cargo trans- portation, saw cargo volumes reaching re- cord levels in 2013 with 2,435,567 tonnes of air freight passing through Dubai In- ternational, up 6.8 per cent compared to 2,279,624 tonnes recorded during 2012. Over 125 airlines serve the two airports in Dubai, facilitating the movement of pas- sengers and cargo to and from 260 desti- nations across six continents. Emirates contin- ues to expand its freighter operations alongside its belly hold capacity. Emir- ates SkyCargo pro- vides belly hold cargo services to more than 140 destinations around the world us- ing cargo hold capac- ity in Emirates' fleet of over 225 aircraft, in addition to over 50 scheduled freighter services. Emirates operates a fleet of 13 freighters, 11 Boeing 777 Fs and two Boe- ing 747-400 ERFs, with a further of two B777s on order, one of which will arrive in November 2014, and the other in August 2015. Emirates flies on a daily schedule between Malta and Dubai via Larnaka, Cyprus. Emirates SkyCargo is located on the First Floor at MIA Departures and can be contacted on tel. no 2166 0102, or at Middlesea Insurance in keep- ing its tradition of rewarding its distribution network, this time decided to award the best per- formers with a trip to the Ok- toberfest. The winners this time had the opportunity to spend a week- end in Munich where they visit- ed the Oktoberfest, the world's largest funfair held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. The Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival running from late Sep- tember to the first weekend in October with more than 6 mil- lion people from around the world attending the event every year. The participants were happy to be part of this event which is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. 'Such initiatives are believed to be essential as to acknowl- edge efforts of our distribution network which plays a very im- portant role in our company' said Fernando DoCampo, As- sistant General Manager at Middlesea Insurance. More ini- tiatives are expected to follow in the coming months. Middlesea Insurance p.l.c. (C- 5553) is authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority to carry on both Long Term and General Business under the In- surance Business Act, 1998. The management team from Frank Salt Real Estate, togeth- er with the company directors have recently returned from a culinary expedition to Sicily, as part of a team building activity. The trip gave the members the opportunity to brainstorm in an informal session, whilst al- so enjoying some leisure time in this quaint haven, sipping fruity indigenous wines and indulging in delightful Sicilian cuisine including visits to eat- eries and wineries in Pozzallo, Taormina, Catania and Forza D'Agro. This activity was organised by the company's HR Division and ties in with the company's 5 year strategic plan which in- corporates opening up a num- ber of additional branches and gradually double its staff com- plement. "We have great plans for Frank Salt Real Estate for the coming years!" commented Douglas Salt, Company Direc- tor. "Growth is not something that happens overnight, but with the right strategy and tools in place, we are confident that we can achieve our targets, which centers on being able to provide a better service to our client. For this to be possible we believe in an extensive invest- ment in our team of managers and property consultants, and ongoing training is a core ingre- dient of this investment. Recog- nition and pampering along the way, does not harm either!" "It was a very pleasant short break and a good opportunity to get to know each other so- cially", added Robert D'Amato, San Gwann branch manager. "I really enjoy everyone's com- pany and spending such a great day together." "Like with every job it is a fantastic learning curve" adds Philippa Tabone, Letting Man- ager. "I am privileged to be surrounded by such a strong team. Overall, in both sales and letting, I really do believe that Frank Salt Real Estate of- fers customer service that is second-to-none. You do find a lot of unprofessional people in this industry and many agen- cies come and go because they don't realise that reputation is everything. Frank Salt Real Es- tate has survived as long as it has, and continues to be a mar- ket leader, because of the pro- fessional and reliable service we offer our clients," she says.
