Avira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaAvira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaPosted: 11 Jun 2020 12:00 AM PDTEvery computer needs antivirus protection, and one way companies can support that aim is to provide free antivirus to the masses. But these companies can't survive unless some users shell out their hard-earned cash for paid antivirus utilities. Piling on pro-only tools and components is one way companies encourage upgrading to a paid antivirus. Avira Antivirus Pro adds several components not available to users of Avira Free Security, but they don't really add much value. The biggest reason to pay for it is if you want to use Avira in a commercial setting, which isn't allowed with the free version.Avira's pricing is undeniably on the high side, with a list price of $59.88 per year for one license, $71.88 for three, and $95.88 for five. Admittedly, it seems to be perpetually on sale; just now, the one-license price is discounted to $44.99. That…

The makeup artists have now reunited in their roles as judges of BBC's Glow Up: Britain's Next Make-Up Star for a second season.

We caught up with Val and Dominic to chat about their at-home beauty routines and find out their top tips for trying something new when it comes to makeup.

What are you getting up to in isolation?

Dom: "It took a couple of weeks to adjust, so I’m sort of shifting my focus. Being able to find time to pick up a book for the first time in years, or taking the time for my skincare. Just having a moment each day to put on a face mask and take a bit of time out."

Val: “For me, it's getting back to the real world of living. I've been doing lots of cooking, walking, cycling and gardening. I've never done so much gardening in all my life."

What’s your everyday skincare routine like right now?

Val: "I found that because I’m in the countryside, I very quickly ran out of a lot of my products. I’ve been looking at ways to cleanse my skin that my mother used to do. I’ve been getting a bowl of hot water with some rosemary and lavender and a towel. I tie my hair back, place the towel over my head, pop my head over the bowl and you have this wonderful steam facial."

Dom: "I am obsessed with skincare and buy a lot of stuff, but what I’ve been doing is really taking the time to use it over a couple of days and really understand what my products do. I’ve been doing my evening skincare routine a lot earlier, to really allow the products to seep into the skin, and I'm loving the Glam Glow Thirsty Mud face mask. I use that along with under eye gel masks; it’s like a face lift. I’ve been really impressed with the L'Oréal Revitalift Laser Renew Glycolic Acid Ampoules, too."

Insider tip: Val used the L’Oreal Revitalift Laser Renew Glycolic Acid Ampoules on Dame Judi Dench during a photoshoot earlier this year.

What are your everyday makeup must-haves?

Val: "Mascara, bronzer and lipstick. I love the L'Oréal Unlimited Mascara, the Colour Riche Lipstick in 337 – it’s a lovely blue-red lipstick and for my bronzer I use Chanel Soleil, which is a cream. I like to look like it’s my skin – I don’t like powders, I like the skin to glow."

Dom: "My base is always Mac Studio Fix 24 Hours Smooth Wear Concealer; it’s a liquid concealer with really good coverage. I dot it all over my face and blend it in with a big brush because then it becomes a really good veil of sheer coverage. Then, I use the Mac Fix+ Coconut, just because it reminds me of holidays. Recently, I’ve been using the Decleor Neroli Oil and press it onto my cheeks; whatever I have left, I put between the brows and lips – I love a glowy, fresh look."

Do you use your beauty routine to boost your mood?

Val: "I still spray my perfume every day. You want to feel like you’ve gotten up and are ready for the day. I think it’s important to have a routine, whether that be skincare, exercise, makeup, doing your hair – that’s important.

Dom: "For me, it’s applying the Mac Fix+ Coconut spray. Next week, I’m meant to be on holiday which won’t be happening now, so I've been putting my bottle in the fridge and spraying every time I go to the fridge when I’m bored."

What are your top tips for trying something new with makeup?

Val: "Just get started; it's only makeup and if it doesn’t work out you can just take it off and start again. Start small. If you want to use colour, maybe try a coloured cat liner or a coloured mascara."

Dom: "When it comes to make up, put it on because you love it; don’t worry about how someone else might see it. It’s not their life, it’s yours. Now that we’re in isolation, there’s no reason why you can’t just treat yourself to a brighter lipstick and wear it on a Zoom meeting and see how it goes. It’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t work."
