Why You Need To Go And Moisturise Your Face Right Now!

I’m often told that I have clear skin and asked how I achieve this. Now, I won’t lie; I was blessed with good genes in the skin department – good skin runs in my family. However, there’s a lot more to having good skin than the absence of blemishes. Warding off pimples is a mere facet of maintaining healthy skin. A clean diet, straying far from processed sugars and drinking 3-4 litres of water a day will help you here. My skin always has minor breakouts (which are BREAKOUTS for me as I’ve never endured acne) when I have been indulging in sugary/fatty foods or drinking large amounts of alcohol – but getting back into a good routine clears it up pretty quickly. My real concern, when it comes to the delicate skin of the upper body, is looking after it to prevent early aging. I know that sounds somewhat narcissistic, but your face is the most exposed part of your body as a human being. Our face should be the part of us that …

The Importance of Eyebrows

The importance of eyebrows, and well maintained ones at that, is something I cannot stress more. I myself was guilty of eyebrow negligence until I hit the age of about 22. By negligence, I don’t mean waxing – most women have that under control (although if you don’t please get on to it, because that’s the most primitive step to great eyebrows). Now picture this; you’ve lathered on your moisturiser, primer, foundation, powder and bronzer. You have slicked winged liner like a goddess. In other words, your makeup looks fab. So you leave the house feeling great and ready for a night out. But hang on…you didn’t touch your eyebrows. So despite applying about 5 different products to your skin, you haven’t touched your brows… Unless you have the most gorgeous, thick, dark eyebrows a girl could have, your poor unattended eyebrows can’t possibly look their best with all that other gunk on your face. Am I painting a picture yet? Here’s some celebs with and without their eyebrows – which is essentially what you …

The ONLY 5 Lipsticks You’ll Ever Need

You probably own about 20 different lipstick colours if you’re like me. And they probably all fit into the 50 shades of nude or red category. The problem is, there are just too many shades these days, and it can get very overwhelming. Not to mention, you have to have some confidence to even give half of those deep purple or brown colours a go! But if you do like to splash on some colour occasionally, or even more often than not, I have come to realise that there are 5, just 5, colours that will see you through every occasion, season and makeup look. Before I list these 5 colours let me just talk about the product. I use M.A.C, because they have a great range, they are relatively cheap compared to your other large cosmetic brands, and if you pair them with the right lip liner (I’ll go into this next), then they will last all night. So I can just picture you cringing when I say lip liner. I used to be …
