When it comes to hair and makeup I’m rather simple. I tend to just have my eyes dark and I’ll spend around 30 minutes, max, doing my hair. The main part of my hair routine is straightening it so when I was offered the chance to review these xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straighteners I couldn’t say no.
When it comes to my hair, I’m ridiculously indecisive. The colour regularly changes and I’ve been black, brown, blonde, red, purple, blue as well as random mixes of colours. What I’m worse with though is the length. When I get it cut I want it long and once it’s long I want it cut. Giving myself and incentive to grow it is always good which is why I’m looking at big, bouncy curls all the time. I was offered a Lee Stafford Curl Your Heart Out Curling Wand to review which has motivated the desire to grow.
I’m getting old. I can’t deny that, we all are. I’ve hit 30 and I’ve started to become a little more aware of my health and skincare – trying to get myself into a routine. I don’t believe in these miracle potions that make you look 10 years younger but I do know some products can help. I was recently asked by Oyster Skincare if I’d like to give their Brightening Eye Serum a whirl and thought why not so here is what I thought.
Think of the most beautiful women you know. What do they all have in common? They have beautiful, glowing skin, right? There is nothing quite like a clear, fresh-faced appearance to make you look your best. If you don’t have the most radiant skin right now, don’t worry because that is something that can be easily fixed. Here’s how.
While I was a Younique Presenter I was asked many questions. Questions about the ingredients in the products, about the correct shades that someone should choose, about the refund policy and so on. THE biggest question was “is Younique cruelty free and/or vegan friendly?”. Even now, when the company has been going for many years, has gone into partnership with one of the top beauty companies in the world and has just launched in a new country, there is still confusion as to the answer of this question.
I’m no make-up artist, in fact, I didn’t even take make-up seriously until about 2 years ago when I bought a new foundation to replace the one I bought for my wedding (in 2008) – that’s how much I didn’t do make-up. Until then I owned an orange foundation, a black mascara, a black eyeliner and a black eyeshadow. Then something in me clicked, I think it was turning 30, that suddenly gave me an obsession with make-up. I’m YouTube taught so I’m not even that good but at least I know (kinda) how to contour and that getting winged eyeliner is practically impossible for me. Anyhoo, the last area of my make-up I learnt how to do was my eyebrows – doing these scared me. So this is where Topplk and their Brow Building Fibers Set came to the rescue.
