15 beauty hints & tips that make a difference…

  1. Cold pressed olive oil is the best moisturiser and makeup remover.
  2. For light & bright makeup coverage, mix a dab of moisturising cream and tanner to your foundation.
  3. Define eyes without making them appear smaller by using black or dark brown on the upper lash-line and a light brown to define bottom lash-line.
  4. To make eyes look brighter (and appear larger) use a nude colour to line the inner rim of your lower eyelid. White liners look too obvious when close-up.
  5. Heat your eyelash curler under hot water or with the Hairdryer for a few seconds for an extra lash lift. Be careful to check the heat of your curler on your chin or wrist before using.
  6. When your Mascara has gone too thick, heat the tube with a hairdryer or place it under hot water. 
  7. Always fill in your eyebrows with a pencil in a shade lighter than your natural colour.
  8. Use gel or a hairspray on a recycled (& cleaned) mascara wand to tame unruly eyebrows.
  9. No time for an in-shower shave?  Use body oil and shave without running water.
  10. Set your eye-liner by applying an eye-shadow in the same colour on top.
  11. When applying mascara tilt your head up. You can see all your lashes and you won’t hit your upper eyelids with mascara.
  12. Never put your face under the hot shower – it’s drying and can cause broken capillaries.
  13. Always keep Eye Gel in the fridge for those ‘puffy’ days.
  14. For truest colour, apply a light amount of matt concealer on your lips before applying lipstick.
  15. Dry shampoo is the best way to absorb oil at the roots, create volume and save your ends from being over-washed and becoming dry.
