Argan/Moroccan oil is a must-have multi-tasking beauty product and goes far and beyond to transform the hair and skin, maintaining optimal nourishment, radiance and a forever sought-after youthful appearance. Better yet, a few drops goes a long way, making this a true gem.

We all know sleep is the time our skin warriors come to life to repair the damage of daily life, making night creams big news for all the beauty savvy out there.

Some days, it just doesn’t matter what the hell I pile on my skin, or how many layers of concealer and corrector I reach for in the day, my ‘distressed’ complexion remains as constant as Putin’s realm over Russia. The Body Shop’s Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is here to put a stop to those self-pitying, resign myself to looking crap days. Loaded with highly beneficial skin-loving and anti-aging ingredients such as edelweiss stem cells, sea holly and babassu oil, this gorgeous gel-cream gets to spend the entire night working little miracles on your skin.

Step outside into weather so cold you half expect to see a penguin on the corner, then go home and crank up the heating until you feel your face dry like a prune IRL. There’s never been a better time to buy that overnight mask –  forget the Easter eggs (well, maybe a couple); Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque is at the top of my Easter wish list. This incredible masque is all you need to reverse the nightmare that is currently UK weather.

Tips To Ensure Your Make-Up Stays Smudge-Proof

Hey Lovelies!

There’s a lot of brands that promise to keep your make-up smudge-proof. Sure, there are some great smudge-resistant products and some, that are, more WTF. That flawless complexion on which you spent enough time, should definitely not dissolve into non-existence by lunch. This is simply not an option. Fortunately, there are a few good tips to keep your make-up smudge-proof and ensure you look gorgeous all-day long. Read on:

1.Exfoliate, People!

I say this so much, but that’s because it is sooo important – exfoliation is key (but not too much). Try to exfoliate twice each week to keep the dead skin cells at bay and ensure your skin is a perfectly smooth canvas, thus giving your make-up the optimal chance of doing its job.

2.Keep Moisturisers and Serums To A Minimum And Give It Time

Moisturisers, serums and SPFs are essential, but it is important not to overdo it. Too much and your make-up will slide off quicker than ice cream on the surface of the sun (well, maybe not that quickly, but you get my point). The other point to remember, is once you’ve applied your moisturiser, serum and SPF, give it time to settle into your skin before you apply the primer.

3.Primer

Invest in a great primer for your skin type. I love Nude by Nature Perfecting Primer, £22. A good primer can and will make all the difference. Buy here

4.Layer

After applying your primer, add your foundation and concealer, then apply your contour and highlighter. I am a big fan of Iconic London’s Multi-Use Pro-Contour Palette, (£32.99). Once you have applied these, add a brush of blush and then a final brush of contour/highlighter for added staying power. Those with dry skin should stick to cream contours and foundations.

5.Give Eyes A Chance

Use an eye primer to keep your eyeshadow from smudging away,  I find Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion, £11.20 really keeps shadow crease-free for longer.

Liquid eyeliners are fab for the upper lids, but for the lower lash line opt for a pencil liner.

6.Set it

Always finish by adding a touch of mattifying powder to keep your make-up in place.   Et voila, you’re good to go, without the need for your compact or makeup essentials. (We all know we will probably take them, just to be on the safe side – old habits.)

The Best New Beauty Products Of 2018

Hey Lovelies!

Happy Friday!

Since the beginning of 2018 we have seen some amazing new beauty product launches, designed to make our lives that bit better. Here is my round up of the best:

1.Bobbi Brown Skin Longwear Weightless Foundation, (SPF15) £31, www.bobbibrown.co.uk

For anyone looking for light and long-lasting coverage, this new foundation from the fabulous Bobbi Brown brand will be a sure hit. Basically, the Longwear Foundation feels totally weightless and blends in seamlessly, providing a matte finish that looks like you are wearing no makeup. I love this foundation!

2.Clarins SOS Primer, £26.50, www.clarins.co.uk

If like me, you suffer from dark spots, imperfections and redness, the SOS Primer will feel like a God Send. Packed with antioxidants to nurture and protect the skin, whilst providing targeted colour corrector to effectively deal with any skin concern, this SOS Primer is a must-have. The only problem is, should you need a colour corrector for more than one concern type, you may need more than one shade. There are 6 incredible shades available – bye, bye, wages!

3.Kiehls Powerful Strength-Line Reducing Concentrate, £49.50 (50ml), www.kiehls.co.uk

Amazing beauty brand Kiehls just gave one of their key serums a makeover. I didn’t think it could get much better, but the Concentrate is now packed with even more essential anti-aging and hydrating vitamin C and hyaluronic acid – 12.5% to be exact. Take that you pesky fine lines.

4.L’Oreal EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask, $3.99, www.amazon.com

This is L’Oreal’s first hair sheet mask and I am smitten! Designed to be a shower steam and deep moisture treatment, this product includes aloe blossom to offer intense hydration and nourishing love for your locks. The result is luscious and super shiny hair that feels totally weightless. #Hairhappiness! Buy from Amazon here

5.Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, £35, www.narscosmetics.co.uk

I am a huge fan of Nars products and given the fact that this foundation promises to stay put for up to 16 hours, and given the other fact that I ALWAYS have to reapply my product at least once during the day, I couldn’t wait to try. The new Nars Foundation is available in 33 shades and glides on to the skin with remarkable flawless results. I have fair skin so love this product in Oslo. The outcome is amazing looking skin that still looks like skin – and it lasts!

6.Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF40, £22.95, www.amazon.co.uk

I know I go on about this A LOT, but sunscreen is probably THE most important cream you should be applying to your skin. As it turns out we should be worrying about the infrared radiation and light from our tablets and phones as well as UVA and UVB rays. Yay! Thankfully, this new product will provide you with all the protection you need and better yet, it soaks in seamlessly and feels practically weightless, too.

7.Wunder2 Super-Stay Liquid Liner, £12.95, www.wunder2.co.ukMetallic White Gold Super-Stay Liner

It’s not just fondations that need reapplication – eyeliners, too, suffer the same fate. That’s where iconic brand Wunder2 comes in – their newly launched Super-Stay liners glide on effortlessly to enable precise application, thus creating a highly pigmented pop of beautiful colour that actually stays put! Available in 3 waterproof collections (Essential, Glitter and Metallic) these 24hour wear liners ensure you don’t need to check the mirror – even if you stay out all night! Buy here
