make up mistakes

You know how you look back at photos of yourself from a few years ago and you instantly recoil at your make-up? Those skinny brows! That under-eye concealer that was two shades too light! That fake-tan that veers slightly too close to orange? Nowadays we have Instagram filters to blur away what we don’t like, but that’s no excuse for a make-up faux pas that could be totally unavoidable. And in an era of contouring, highlighting, fake lashes and fake lips, there is a hell of a lot that can go wrong. We’ve all done it – this isn’t about feeling bad about your make-up mistakes – but here are a few tips to avoid repeating the most common ones of 2017, as we make our way in to the New Year….

The perfect nude lip has become a bit of a beauty phenomenon in its own right. In recent years the nude lip, like the red lip before it, has become a go-to look that, done right, has the power to transform your face, update your look and make you look can’t-put-my-finger-on-why better. Now the nude lip got a – sort of – royal seal of approval, as the signature look of Prince Harry’s gorgeous new fiancé, Meghan Markle.

how to fake a good nights sleep

Beauty sleep starting to become a thing of the past? Why is it that when the nights start to get longer, the amount of sleep we’re getting actually, conversely, starts to reduce? The clocks might have gone back this weekend but let’s face it, the extra hour in bed didn’t touch the sides- we’re getting gradually less sleep each week, thanks to our inability to turn down invitations to all those bonfire night parties/ post-work prosecco/ pre-Christmas drinks (yes, even in November. We like to start early.)....

false lashes

Halloween is often the first event to kick off party season (yay!) and a great excuse to play about with our makeup. Whatever you’re going as, dramatic eyes can really complete the look (think feline fabulous or sultry vampire) and can give us the confidence to work the room at that unmissable Halloween party. While going for fake lashes can seem like the most obvious choice it might not be the best one, falsies can leave us looking a bit scary, and not in the way we want to.

the sexy one

Remember when Halloween was just for kids? Oh how we’ve moved on from the days when the 31st October was just a day when we’d go for a spot of after-school trick or treating, dressed in a bin liner and a mask we’d bought at the newsagents. Now, thanks to Hollywood’s love of Halloween, the end of October is one long party, an excuse to dress up, go crazy with our make-up and then Instagram the hell out of it. Figure out which Halloween tribe you fit into...

is your make up gathering cobwebs

How old is your mascara – and be honest? We’re ALL guilty of clinging on to our make-up for longer than we should. Let’s face it, who wants to throw out their favourite mascara if they can scrape out a few more weeks of use? But, how old is too old?

So far 2016 has definitely been a year of inspiration and innovation for both beauty and fitness. More than ever we are spurred on by Insta stars, Olympians and bloggers as social media allows us sneak peaks of BTS action and super accessible tips and tricks. With all this exposure to women world wide girl-bossing their way through tough workouts and hectic schedules, there's also the matter of the rest of us having internal meltdown's because that level of productivity and endless energy (all the while looking oh so fresh faced) just isn't quite as achievable as the press says it is. So, less of the unrealistic schedules and unattainable goals, here's my take on how to keep your confidence high and endorphins' buzzing in the most stylish way.

There’s nothing worse than looking back at photographs and seeing horrible, damaged, bald lashes from years of falsies, bad mascara and useless makeup removers.
