ARE HAIR TATTOOS THE NEXT MUST HAVE ACCESSORY?

I love this picture of Kylie Jenner, even though she bugs the hell out of me  – she looks great in this picture. I love the lippy and finally her hair is back black and looks gorgeous!

She is fast becoming the most powerful Kardashian and when she wears or tweets about a new product, the world goes into chaos and the product sells out. Will hair tattoos be the next thing that every one will want?

STEP 1:

Start by washing your hair using Perfectly (un)Done Weightless Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner and rough dry.

Apply Get Sleek Blow Dry Balm from roots to ends and dry hair with a round bristle brush before using a comb to create a straight center part.

STEP 2:

Separate hair into 2-inch wide sections and use a 1.5 inch barrel curling wand to create a very loose S-bend wave in the hair, rolling the curling wand down the hair. Use the edge of the curling wand to smooth the hair at the roots.

THE BEST PRODUCTS FOR STROBING

main-t-london-2007-ss15-pw

You can probably been living under a rock if you have not yet heard of strobing! Loved by celebs and beauty bloggers alike, this trend is seen as the anti-contour.

Candice and Chrissy are fans of strobing!

I am a lover of contour. I love a chiseled cheek bone and perfectly contoured nose and I didn’t think I would get on board with this strobing look.

Here is why I like it:

  • It’s so simple to master
  • It takes half the time that contouring takes
  • It looks so natural and you don’t look like you spent ages doing your makeup (because you haven’t!)
  • It gives a fantastic glowy, dewy skin
  • If you are prone to oily skin, don’t shy away from this look! Own it! Don’t worry about looking shiny- it’s the whole point. use powder to keep your nose, chin and forehead matte and let your natural skin type enhance your strobe!
  • As much as I love a good contour, It’s not a look to be done every day so strobing is the perfect alternative for a natural work, daytime look!
  • Gigi Hadid loves it so it’s OK with me!
Gigi strobes? I'm jumping on the bandwagon!

Kim made contouring a must in every makeup routine but let’s be honest, it is not an everyday look!
Keep your contouring for the weekend Lou!

How to Strobe:

Hit the points below with your favorite product. Blend into your skin (I use my fourth finger to blend!) until you have the desired glow. Use product sparingly and you can always add more if you so wish!

Keep the corners of your nose, chin and between your brows and forehead matte by using your favorite powder!

What to use for strobing:

Take note that the below colors are for fairer skin tones, but most of these brands carry many different colours of the same product so go a little deeper. if you have dark skin, gold tones look amazing on your skin for strobing. Try Moon Beam from Benefit!

I prefer liquid products to strobe – it’s gives a more natural, dewy look!

FRAGRANCE REVIEW: ZARA WOMAN CHOCOLATE

I also have my going out/ special event fragrance but I also always keep an every day perfume in my handbag that I use for work or day time.

IMG_4931

Right now, my go-to day time scent is an absolute bargain and is just $10 from Zara. Ladies, I give you Zara Woman Chocolate.

IMG_4914

This Eau de Toilette, has a base note of musk with elements of vanilla and cocoa, topped off with a top note of chocolate. Yes it is a sweet scent, but I just find it irresistible and for $10, you cannot go wrong! Of course, it is not the most long lasting fragrance but that won’t stop me buying it again and again!
