How to find your perfect celebrity hair colour.

Its amazing how many hair colours that are actually available. All of us are guilty of looking at pictures of celebrities then taking said picture to our local salon (even me) only to be told our hair won’t end up that way. It’s disappointing.

However this picture gives us a rough guide into the different tones and styles that are available and what kind of skin tone do they suit?

Are you a bombshell blonde like taylor swift or a bodacious brunette like kim kardashian?

leave me a comment and let me know your favourite hair colour!

  • Top tips for tired skin:

Don’t forget to exfoliate!! It is sooo important to exfoliate your skin at least 2-3 times a week to prevent the build up of dead skin cells that cause skin to look and feel dull.

Drink plenty of water – hydration is the biggest factor in bright skin, drinking 2 litres of water a day will improve your health, help with weight management, and is great for your skin , hair and eyes.

Weekly face masks – Buy a mask that suits your skin type and consistently use it every week and you will see a difference. I use GlamGlow masks as they pull all oils out of my very oily skin!!

Plenty of sleep! – seems obvious but people don’t realise the value of a good sleep! , not only will it improve your health but it will prevent dark circles appearing under the  eye and stop skin from turning greyish in colour!

Buy a foundation suitable for your skin type – a lot of people will buy the latest foundation because its what everyone else uses ,but what they don’t realise is if its not suitable for your skin type (dry, oily, combination, normal) then its going to be no good at all! Foundation not suited to you won’t sit right on the skin therefore leaving the odd problem and not leaving it glowing!!

Get outside – Vitamin D has been proven to boost radiance in skin, we get our vitamin D from the Sun!

Hopefully this was of some use to you, if you have any questions list them below in a comment!

Contouring vs Strobing.

So you’ve only just got used to contouring – thats if you HAVE got used to it , perhaps you are just confused as the rest of us, however, there is now an easy way out ; STROBING. Its much less time consuming , and uses less products … but does it have the same effect as contouring?

What is strobing?
For strobing , you’ll need to dig out your best illuminating products, creams, liquids, powders, use it all!!

Strobing is designed to over highlight, focusing mainly on highlighter products. The products are supposed to be placed where the light would naturally hit your face (so, your cheekbones, brow bones, the centre of your forehead, down your nose, cupids bow, and on your chin.) So I would personally use a cream highlighter underneath your foundation and then a soft powder luminizer on top, more so on your cheekbones.

What is contouring?

Contouring is giving shape to an area of the face and enhancing the facial structure through makeup, using light and dark colours to highlight and shade the face. Contouring is designed to make facial features more defined, such as sharper cheekbones , narrower nose and smaller forehead. Celebs such as Kim Kardashian have really taken this trend off the ground and now everyone craves the sharp look! Its absolutely all about the blending and the brushes, totally worth investing in! Harsh lines are never cute.

So when should we do which?

Personally, i’m a greedy make up junkie and I love both all at the same time!!!
However, some would say that contouring is a full glam evening look, team with a sexy smokey eye and you’ll be on your way. This doesn’t mean that your daily routine can’t consist of chiselled cheek bones and a totally beat make up look!! Strobing is perfect for the low maintenance girl in a rush for work in the morning but a glam glow is appropriate at ALL times. FullSizeRender-3

Waist training…what is it and does it work?

I came across waist training the back end of 2014, i’d see various celebrities on instagram endorsing these brightly coloured corsets with their tiny waists and it got me thinking… what is this that they’re wearing and is it a scam? So I did my research into different styles, types , colours etc and tried to figure out which is my best option because at £55+ they aren’t cheap!!

I discovered that they come with different rows, usually 2 or 3, and as your waist gets smaller you go down a row on the waist trainer. But how does it work?

It works alongside balanced diet and fitness and drinking lots of water, and gradually with the compression of the latex corset the water is released around your waist, stomach and hips leaving you gradually feeling flatter and more toned.

So within a week of wearing it (up to 10 hours a day) I was starting to feel different and i found when i worked out a the gym the sweat was making my waist shrink more, a bit like wearing a permanent shrinking wrap. So far so good! By the 7th week I was on the 3rd row and absolutely loving the results.

I slept in it each night leaving my stomach extremely flat by the morning. It even looks great under dresses for a night out, almost like a spanx type just for your stomach, its very discreet!! So final result of my waist training story is 9 months on I’m still waist training and still loving it!

I had my doubts at first but id never look back , waist training is a safe, effective and fast way of reducing water and weight from round my stomach , hips and waist!

My waist trainer was £55 and i purchased it from Waist training by Amy on http://www.facebook.com

Top 5 Hair Hacks every girl MUST know.

  1. You absolutely MUST get a shampoo that contains no silicone. Silicone is a hidden ingredient in shampoos that disguise itself as softening your hair!! What it does is coats your hair leaving a heavy, greasy consistency resulting in hair that feels like it hasn’t been washed. Eventually when the silicone washes away it leaves hair feeling dry and broken.

    Shampoos to avoid:
    Loreal Elvive 
    Head and Shoulders
    Fructis
    Pantene

    Shampoos to buy:
    Anything clear in consistency (not pearly or cloudy)
    Herbal Essences
    Anything salon bought
    Timotei
    Alberto Balsam

2.   Stop breakage of hair with INVISIBOBBLE

         If you wear a tight bobble or ever tie your hair up wet you’re likely to cause breakage round the mid lengths
of your hair. You can now purchase invisibobbles that look like mini telephone lines !! they are extremely lightweight but very tight and well holding, these traceless hair rings ensure no breakage and hide all marks or kinks from ordinary bobbles . These retail at around £3.75 and come in all colours in a pack of 3!

   3. Hair oil!!!

The absolute MUST for dry hair. Can be used wet, dry, as a serum or mixed with your conditioner. Oils come in all different styles and hair types and I can’t stress enough how important they are! For a light finish try coconut oil or for extremely dry damaged hair then argan oil is the one for you. It repairs the ends and leaves a smooth soft finish.

4. Seems simple – Getting your hair cut!! a simple trim every 8 weeks keeps on top of split ends and therefore helps it to repair ends and keep them solid encouraging strong hair growth. Once an end splits, it splits upwards and breaks off, it is so worth having the ends trimmed!!

5. LEE STAFFORD “FOR HAIR THAT NEVER GROWS PAST A CERTAIN LENGTH”

I cannot stress enough the pure magic of this product. Its a treatment that needs to be applied between your shampoo and your conditioner , for at least 5 minutes. I used this product for up to 6 months and noticed a hell of a difference!! My hair became thicker and longer and a lot heavier on the ends, it took about a month to know a difference. Retails at around £8.99 but can be bought on the 3 for 2 offer at Boots.
