Terrific Tuesday : a tale of East Meets West and Skin Science meets Natural goodness
Rating ; Yin-Yang tastic I’ve discovered an incredible new brand that somehow fuses the best of both worlds with Asian inspired natural goodness : together with cutting edge skin science. All developed by someone who knows. Ok down side? None I see yet!
Inside scoop; Su-Man is a celebrity facialist inspired brand and so much more. I’ve been trialing some of their range recently and am loving their Asian-Fusion mix of skincare that works : plus natural ingredients. I call it East meets West, you might just say it works…oh and its won a few awards too!
Banish bad hair days and misty manky Monday blues with this Monday hair-saviour!
Rating ; Does your hair have the Monday blues? Or is it just manky messy and miserable like mine? Maybe not, but I confess I was NOTblessed with camera ready hair. Actually it’s fair to say I was not really overly blessed in the hair department at all, so I rate this one HAIR-RAISINGLY fab.
Inside scoop; Bumble & Bumble, I guess you’ve heard of them no doubt? But, tried this hidden in their range product, maybe not? Whether your hair hates the weather : or the weather hates your hair ; this might be your go-to lucky locks fixer this Autumn.
If you’ve had a packed weekend then here’s a Sunday tip you need that is out of this world ; well to the moon to be precise…
Rating ; Slumber, sleepy, sound, sensory, snoozing, simply, special SLEEP…that’s what this gorgeous range promises AND delivers. Unassumingly signed off ‘sleep beautifully’ on all their products you will and they can help.
Inside scoop ; It is said a good night’s sleep is the cure for all ills and the perfect set up for the week, well it doesn’t get ‘good-er’ than this delightfully British Range of sleep-inducing, sleep-encouraging, sleep-making products.
Sizzling sexy smokin hot; discover this A/W season’s MUST wear danglers! From gorgeous artisan brand Shiver and Duke
Rating ; Saturday night out – in – or anywhere make a STATEMENT with these stunning shimmering oh so dangly must-buy NEW A/W season earrings from Shiver & Duke. SADLY they come in a stunning array of colours meaning it’s very likely ONE pair will NOT be enough.
Inside scoop; Shiver-me-timbers again it’s Shiver & Duke. Shiver and Who I hear you say??? Well if you missed my last post read on for an artisan fashion find your friends WON’T have yet. I found mine in my local too cool for school boutique ‘Escape’.
Flawless Friday it’s as easy as 1-2-G for GLOW gorgeous skin
Rating ; G stands for GLOW : glow getter, look BETTER. Friday’s top pre-weekend tip is a light dusting of my favourite super-fine ‘finishing powder’ from those clever folks atbareminerals.
Inside scoop ; Finishing powder might sound like one of those REALLY, come on REALLY do I need it type products. Well I guess it depends….shiny slippy off make-up your thing? Nasty craggy collecty-in-the-creases foundation your go-to look. Ah ok NO, then YUP, it’s handy stuff and pretty much the staple insider beauty trick for any MUA worth her brushes!
So glowing skin at any age as is as easy as brush – swish – finish ; READ MORE >>>
Berry Berry nice ; I’m head over Autumn leaves in love with BERRY blush
Rating ; Berry Berry nice ; So following on from my berry nice lipstick post yesterday from the feedback I’m sensing we’re liking the juicy-theme which is great! So if you’re going all-in for plum like me I’d recommend teaming your berry lips WITH a berry blush ; but going a little lighter on the rest.
Inside scoop ; No need to give the apple to the teacher, wear this seasons blushing berry deep red hues on the apples of your cheeks as well, for the perfect ‘just-in-from-the-cold cheek’ blush. As I move into my Autumn / Winter wardrobe (actually did I ever STOP wearing boots – nope!) I reckon berry blush looks amazing with black, teal or any of the latest must wear Fall shades.
