Make-up musts for gorgeous photos. | Tips&Tricks.

Hi everyone,
With social media on the rise, I thought it might be nice to share some tips I have compiled for picture perfect make-up that helped me look better in photo's. All natural. Always have make-up applied in natural light. This will be the best indicator of how it will look when photographed.Primary focus. Primmer is essential for keeping make-up intact. It kind of plays the role of base coat on a manicure. Oil-free versions are best and also sensitive skin-friendly.Lighten up. Avoid going too dark in your foundation shade. Have it professionally matched to your skin tone, and if it's for a special event, try and get it matched close to the date as possible. Matte is a must. For checks, stay away from shimmery powders. For eyelids, keep shimmer strictly on eye lids.Line up. When lining eyelids, start in the centre and work your way to the outer edge. Lining the entire lid will cause your eyes to look smaller.More is better. A camera flash will wash out colours, no mat…

7 ways to get rid or tame frizzy hair. | Tips&Tricks.

Hi everyone,
Here I've got 7 ways you can get rid or tame your frizzy hair. Blow dry on the cool setting instead of the hot setting. Use paper towels or a cotton t-shirt instead of a regular towel. This is because a towel will create a lot more friction with your hair and cause frizz. Squeeze your hair when you come out the shower to remove the water. Do not rub, as that will cause friction which leads to frizzy hair. DIY anti-frizz mask; mix honey and yogurt together, then put that in your hair and leave it in for a few minutes and wash out, this will hopefully tame your frizzy hair.If you have curly/wavy hair don't brush it when your hair is dry, that will just leave you with a frizzy mess! Instead brush/comb it when its damp.Don't give your hair alcohol! Most hair products contain alcohol and this will make your hair dry and create even more frizzy hair.My favourite product to use is Argon Oil. I just pour a few drops into my hand and spread it out evenly through the en…

25 Beauty Tips and Tricks. | Tips&Tricks.

Hi everyone,
Today I'm going to share with you 25 Beauty Tips and Tricks that I think could be useful to at least one person out there who is reading this. If you want a matte lipstick and you can't find an already matte lipstick in the colour you want, get a tissue and lay it over your lips. Then gently dab it so it touches the lipstick, apply translucent powder over the top with a brush and the lipstick should appear to be matte.Do you have gloopy nail polish? Simply place it in a bowl full of boiling water for 2 minutes and its back to normal!DON'T PUMP YOUR MASCARA WAND INTO THE TUBE. Most of you probably pump the mascara wand into the tube when applying it onto your lashes to get more product on the brush but this makes your mascara dry up quicker. What you should do is place the wand back in the tube carefully, twist it around, then take it out carefully again.Using dry shampoo at night will work better then applying it in the morning.If you cannot find your eye-line…

DIY Natural Face Masks. | DIY

Hi everyone,
Having to look after your face can be a pain in the butt, especially if you have acne (or not). Face masks provide a deep nourishment to your skin. It's one of the most vital steps for your face care regime but most people neglect the whole idea as it must stay on your face for about 15 minutes. The mask doesn't need to consist of many ingredients, loads of great face masks have only one vital ingredient that makes all the difference.
Banana; the best all natural face mask. Mash up the banana into a smooth paste, then apply to your face, leave it on for 10-20 minutes then rinse off with cold water.Yogurt; spread plain yogurt on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes, then wash off with luke-warm water.For brightening your skin and adding glow, you can use an egg and honey mixture. Egg will minimise oil and shrinks pores. First you'll have to separate the egg white and yolk into different bowls and add 2 tablespoons of honey to the egg WHITE, then mix it up! …
