Test Drive your Cosmetics

Hey Dolls,

It’s been a while! wish there was more time in the day, writing up business plan, work, the twins and figuring out what new direction the blog is going! Anyway this post is not about that! However I will get back to that in more detail…Promise. Will try keep this post short and sweet.

Clients, girlfriends and family members always ask me, Christelle what’s a good eye cream or foundation etc etc. I obviously recommend what i know and I’ve tried, but that does not necessarily mean that it is right for their needs. I’ve always keep in mind if I’m going to spend money on good skin care, foundation or concealer….the list keeps going! Always ask for samples see if it works for you, see how you like it! There is nothing worst than spending £50 on a eye cream, for it to be siting in the back of your bathroom shelf because it is not working for you!!! We have all been there trust me, I know! It can be a little embarrassing to ask for samples….but don’t be, you have every right to do so.

I Asked for Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation samples, used it…Loved it! Bought IT!

Now kind of addicted to her products, I’m currently sampling her skincare range ‘The Magic Skin Trilogy‘.  The Magic Night Cream and The Magic Eye Rescue, haven’t tried The Magic Cream yet, however it is  an award-wining product! The samples I’m using so far so good!

The Magic Night Cream, has 8 de-ageing ingredients; Time-Released Retinol Molecules, Winter Daphne Stem Cells Extract, Frangipani, Vitamin E, Bionymph Peptide, Second Skin Red Algae Marigel, Castor Seed Oil is the healing properties in this cream and the last ingredient is Olus Oil.  It is always better to start using anti-ageing creams now to prevent the natural ageing process and avoid botox! I use a little, its an elixir so you do not need use a lot the texture is rich but velvety. My skin feels amazing in the morning, plump and smooth. I’m a firm believer of night creams and this one is 10/10.

The Magic Eye Rescue, contains 6 of the same ingredients instead of the Castor Seed Oil and Olus Oil; It contains Botanical Eye Contour Complex and Saccharide Isomerate. The Magic Eye Cream reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, meant to smooth fine lines and instantly tightens and refreshes the skin. Well as you know the skin around your eyes is the thinest, so I apply very little around my eyes, you should always gently tap around the eyes not rub it! Because I used so little from my sample it lasted me a week and the appearance of my dark circles have reduced…I hardly use concealer around my eyes now! I will be making a trip to the nearest Charlotte Tilbury haul on pay day!!

Do not be shy nor embarrassed to ask for samples, reviews are helpful but it is not the as trying it for your self! I mean when you buy a car…you test it first no? Hope you have found this post useful and pleasant…please feel free to comment or share with friends. Stay beautiful inside out. X

Eye treatments (Brows & Lashes Tint )

Eye treatments (Brows & Lashes Tint )

Hi Beauties 😘

It’s been a while lost my blogging Mojo, I would like to think I’m back! So our facial unit is almost done and I can say that I’m very confident in giving treatments! I received a Merit grade for my first pre-observation, it is going really well so far. So today I’m going to keep it short n’ sweet and talk about the benefits of having your brows and lashes tinted; Tinting your brows not only gives colour and definition to catch on even on the finest hair. Also it’s perfect for when your on holiday there’s no need to draw them on all the time, for those hot summer nights just use a clear brow mascara to keep them neat and defined, that also goes for your lashes plus you can pull off the almost no make-up look! Me having my brow’s and lashes tinted has cut 5mins to my make up routine.

There’s 3 colours, Brown, Black and Blue.

The Blue is actually very black but put applying that on your brows will turn blue, so keep that just for the lashes.

Brown is perfect for blondes and if you want a darker brown leave it on for longer.

Always use Vaseline before tinting application.

You can get  tinting kits from Superdrugs, Boots and Sally’s, prices vary from £7 to £20 depending on the brand.

This is the permanent professional Kit

I’m in love with tinting and I hope you Doll’s find this post helpful, please feel free to comment. Stay beautiful in and out X. 🙂

#SS15 Hair Trends

Hey Beautiful Ladies, I have just realised I haven’t posted about the Spring Summer 15 hair trend, so I’ve picked a few that I have seen around the Fashion Week season and the ones I like! Hope you guys will like them too. 😉

The wet-look Trend, the high-shine hair was everywhere, Zac Posen take on the trend with slick-sides a masculine touch, also had finger combed quiffs and a bold red lip, courtesy of Mac’s lip mix, to finish of the look.

The Low Ponytail Trend, was worn slick but crimped…YES crimped at Stella McCartney, sporty at Alexander Wang and the wet-look at Prada. Whatever styles you wear your ponytail this spring; sleek at the front and bold at the back, also just wear it low at the nape of your neck.

Braids Trend, more beautiful braids were seen at the Marissa Webb show, was a multi-look braids created by the TRESemme team. However you wish to braid your hair it doesn’t matter, it is in season!

Woodstock trend, the 70s festival vibe look, were on show at Emilio Pucci, Anna Sui and Tommy Hilfiger Woodstock waves, loose waves, plait your hair to get the waves add serum and hair spray, crunch it up so it doesn’t look too polished.

The Fat top-knots trend, was seen at Nanette Lepore simple and stylish, Maybelline’s 60s make up – graphic white eyeliner and top-to-bottom lashes. Loving this look!

 

Changing hairstyles this season wont be an issue, you have plenty styles to choose from! Happy Spring 🙂 X.

Spring Pretty…

Spring Pretty…

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend 🙂

Spring is here…even though it doesn’t seem like it! We’re pretty much still dressed for the winter, but it doesn’t mean our make up shouldn’t be in season. Think supernatural glowing skin, spring’s painterly strokes of colour ranged from the understated to high-impact lips and eye shadows. I have picked out my favourite make up trends for #SS15 (Spring & Summer 15).

SS15

The first look that did it for me and for those who love wearing bright colourful shadows, was at Elie Saab #SS15, Make up expert Tom Pecheux used MAC, layering different azure shades top and bottom absolutely gorgeous.

The romantic look, from Dolce Gabbana #SS15 was inspired by the Spanish influences in Sicily. All products used are Dolce Gabbana, the classic cream lipsticks in shades Ultra and Amethyst and the new Dolce matte lipstick in Dolce Desire, the brow is sculpted with a brow liner in chestnut. Perfect date night look!

The clean, “no make up”, glowing trend is my ultimate favourite, perfect for work, school runs, everyday make up! And it was seen in a few fashion houses’, like Christopher Kane #SS15 to name a few. Lucia Pieroni’s trick for getting that glowing skin, is to mix the Pure Radiant Tinted moisturiser with the Optimal Brightening Concentrate, both products by Nars, making your skin look healthier in an effortless way.

The final look, is for the lipstick addicts from Burberry Prorsum #SS15. Burberry’s make up artistic consultant Wendy Rowe, created the lustry look, the honey skin, tawny eyes and ruby lips. Proving the classic lip look is not dated. Lip colour in Ruby No18 from Burberry.
