Time

Being a woman is hard work. Not only do we want to succeed in everything we do, but we’re also expected to look flawless all day long.

How To Make Your Hair Extensions Look As Natural As Possible

When you wear hair extensions, you don’t want anybody to know that you’re wearing extensions. That defeats the entire object! You want your extensions to blend with your own hair and look as natural as possible. Here are some of my favourite tips to help them look more natural:

Clip Up Any Shorter Layers
If your hair is quite a bit shorter than your extensions, you should clip up your shorter layers before clipping them in. Make sure your clips are secure, and then put your hair extensions over the top. This will stop you from getting that annoying flicky bit that so many girls get when their own hair is shorter!

In one of my recent posts Everyday Skincare Products And Why We Should Be Using Them, I briefly mentioned my love for Frank Original Coffee Scrub and said it really deserved a post all on it’s own. So here it is! Now you may have seen Frank being mentioned a whole load on social media, primarily Instagram with pictures of all these bronzed models covered head to toe in what looks like coffee and some seriously impressive before and after shots of various people with reduced cellulite, scars and stretch marks. This was how I was sucked in and at £11.95 I figured I would give it a shot.

Frank’s Original Body Scrub is an ‘original, special blend of natural ingredients that will scrub away dry, flaky skin and target pesky skin conditions like cellulite, stretch marks, eczema and psoriasis.’

A few of my favorite things: Netflix Edition

NETFLIX

I’m sure I can’t be the only one to admit Netflix has by far taken over from the TV. Gone are the days of families sitting around the TV watching Only Fools and Horses or Absolutely Fabulous.

So if you missed it you can head over there to find out exactly why you should be using a serum and the possible benefits it could provide for you.

Skin Types Explained!

summer deals!These days, we can sometimes feel a little overwhelmed by the extensive amount of skincare products available to us. There’s some sort of lotion or potion available for any skin concern or complaint we may have. But how do we know what’s right for us and our skin? Since working as a Makeup Artist, I’ve discovered the biggest confusion clients have is about what skin type they have, which means finding products to suit their skin type like finding a needle in a hay stack. So today I thought I’d help out a bit by explaining some of the key characteristics of each skin type and even created a handy dandy quiz at the end to help you figure out your skin type.  Continue reading “Skin Types Explained!”

Recently in one of my late night ‘sucked into a black hole’ internet sessions, I stumbled upon this image of a woman who doesn’t remove her makeup for an entire month to find out the effects it will have on her skin. 

Now I’m sure we’re all aware that it is a bad idea to sleep in your makeup but what is it actually doing to our skin in both the short and long term? I decided to investigate the damage sleeping in our makeup has on our skin and here is what I found!

Blocking Pores
Leaving makeup on can blog your pores, trapping oil inside. This leads to bacteria build up, acne and enlarged pores. Continue reading “Why you should NEVER sleep in your makeup!”
