4 Ways To Achieve Full, Long And Luscious Lashes

Hey Lovelies,

Back from the day of Marilyn Monroe, full, long and luscious lashes have been a much sought-after trend. Check out the best tips and tricks to help you achieve the gorgeous lash effect which will totally transform your overall look into one of chic glam.

1.For Fast Lash Growth Choose: AQ Skin Solutions Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancement System, £145 (7ml), www.dermacaredirect.com

This is an amazing product that actually works like a dream to lengthen and create fuller lashes and brows. If (like me) you have gone a little OTT, plucking out a tad more than you perhaps intended – only to discover that for some damn reason, they don’t actually grow back WHERE THEY SHOULD (What the HELL is with that anyway?), this is the go-to solution.

I tried the AQ Skin Solutions Eyelash & Eyebrow System for two months – and it truly works. The natural and serum does not contain any harsh chemicals. It simply works by triggering the natural production of the hair matrix. I began to see a noticeable difference within 4 weeks of use! Result: 9/10.

2.For Glue-On Lashes Choose: Eyelure Cheryl – Lengthening, No. 114 Lashes, £5.25, www.eyelure.com.

As a beauty editor I have tried pretty much every type of false lashes around and Eyelure remain my favourite. I love false lashes but hate, hate, hate it when they randomly fall away from the corner of the eye – and this always happens at the worst possible moment. Worse still, when someone else points it out – but even more troubling when no one has mentioned the fact your lash is no longer fully attached, and you don’t realise until you’ve been home for an hour!

With Eyelure, your lashes truly transform your look and actually stay put until you decide to remove them. This brand offers a huge array of lashes to suit your every mood. However, my favourite is the Cheryl – Lengthening Lashes. They perfectly enhance your eyes, adding just the right amount of volume and length, without being too diva-esque. Result: 9/10.

3.For Longer Looking Lashes Naturally Choose: No7 Lift And Curve Eyelash Curler, £8, www.boots.com

In order to create the eye-popping and fuller, longer lash look without reaching for the falsies, always use an eyelash curler before applying your mascara. This little trick goes a long way in achieving those luscious lashes, of which we all crave.

4.For Fuller Looking Lashes Choose: L’Oréal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes Mascara, £11.99, www.superdrug.com

For must-have full and volume lashes, I highly recommend L’Oréal’s Double Extension Mascara. The 2-step system includes a conditioning white base (coated in Ceramide R of which contains fibres) on one end of the wand. This works to extend the length of your lashes. The other end of the wand contains the mascara. The result is incredible lashes you will love. The only thing I should mention is in order to prevent clumping the following morning, it is imperative you fully cleanse all of the product in the evening.

Eye Bags – What Might They Be?

Hey lovelies!

I hope you’ve all had an awesome weekend. At 3am this morning I realised it didn’t matter how much antioxidant packed cream I slathered on my eye bag riddled face, there wouldn’t be a cat in hell’s chance (weird saying, I know) of looking anything like a fresh daisy today; I was right. Appearing radiant and refreshed required some serious sleep time – or maybe not. Cue the following incredible (and simple) hacks to banish those eye bags forever.

 1.Cool Cucumber

Finally, a good use for cucumber! This age-old hack is one of the best treatments for a savage attack of puffy eyes and eye bags. Slice two pieces of refrigerated cucumber, place them over your eyes and take half an hour’s rest. Within seconds, you literally will feel their magic work. This amazing fruit offers ascorbic and caffeic acid that greatly reduces water retention and thus diminishes puffiness and swelling. Furthermore, it provides a skin lightening effect, making you look more radiant and refreshed. #Lifegoals! #Phew!

 2.Egg Whites

Egg whites are another fantastic treatment for dreaded eye bags. They combine proteins and the skin nurturing vitamin E that work in unison to firm and tighten the delicate skin under the eyes. I have not used this method for long enough to confirm, but it is reported that over time this treatment can offer a long-lasting improvement for sagging skin and wrinkles, as well as reducing pigmentation. Hooray!

 3.Tea Bags

Should you be running late and need a quick fix, try the tea bag trick. The idea here is to wet the tea bag in ice cold water then rest over your eyes for 10 minutes. The powerful astringent qualities of tannin are highly beneficial in cooling, soothing, diminishing water retention and unsightly pores as well as tightening the skin. The result is a fast and significant reduction in swelling, puffiness and people gently asking if you are ok!

 4.H20

This hack is cheap, simple, works like a dream and yet is so often overlooked. Drink plenty of water and you will be amazed at the difference it will make to your complexion! Begone pitiful eye bags!

Have you tried any of these? What do you think?

6 Quick-Fix Beauty Tips To Ensure A Valentine’s Day To Remember

Hey Lovelies!

It’s time to prepare for the most awesome Valentine’s Day yet. Whether you have a hot date lined up or just want to go out looking hot AF, make sure you have these boxes ticked:

1.Quick-Fix Blemishes

Ok, so Valentine’s Day is on its way and according to the law of the sod, a blemish or two will be making its way to the centre of your face just in time to ruin the night. Not so this year – between now and then make sure you use your cleanser religiously. I love Viliv C Clean Off the Day By Dr. felix Betram. Combining aloe vera, almond oil and essential vitamins, this cleanser effortlessly removes dirt and makeup whilst simultaneously providing moisture and nutrients. By the time Valentine’s Day comes your face will look as fresh as a daisy.

However, should a blemish or two sneak past this amazing cleansing action, do not fear – take some witch hazel and dab it on the affected area. This truly works little miracles!

2.Rejuvenating Sheet Mask

We have so much to thank K-beauty for, and sheet masks are top of the list. Try Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask (£18). Including, vitamins, floral extracts, peptides and more, these nutrients seep deep into the skin to provide you with a salon-worthy facial in just 15 minutes! Your skin will look and feel amazing.

3.Treat Your Eyes

If you have had, like, zero sleep and your eye bags look like you’ve had an allergic reaction and then painted your eyeliner in the wrong place, you may feel like panicking. Instead, de-puff using an eye massager such as the fabulous Sensse Eye Massager. Afterwards place a slice of cucumber over each eye for 15 minutes, followed by some great antioxidant eye cream. Your eyes will soon be looking beautiful and sparkly once more.

4.Don’t Forget Your Teeth

If (like me) you love the tea, coffee and energy drinks – don’t fret. There are quick-fix resources without having to visit the dentist at short notice. Try Whiteglo’s Whitening Pen Brush. Your gnashers will now look gorgeous with your sexy bold red lippy. Phew!

5.Body Scrub

There’s nothing worse than feeling unconfident on date night due to things that can be easily fixed. Dry or rough skin doesn’t need to be an issue. Invest in a great body scrub. I’m totally in love with the Body Shop’s Shea Exfoliating Sugar Body Scrub (£6). It ticks all the boxes, can be used on sensitive skin and doesn’t cost a small fortune!

6.Tan

I always feel sexier when I am a little tanned. Unfortunately, my bank balance has kept me well and truly grounded in the freezing UK weather, so for now I would need a self-tan. I adore Cocoa Brown’s 1hour Tan and mitt – it’s fast, effective, non- streaky and very importantly, reasonably priced (£7.99).The result is a gorgeous and sun-kissed effect that no one can resist. Exactly what we’re after!
