Rating; Rose tinted spectacles actually rose tinted beauty alert!
Inside scoop; Ok I don’t especially do Celebrity-endorsed products (not sure why but they mildly aggravate me) : nor do I especially do High Street beauty products (not snobby just sometimes quality fails) but today PARK the prejudice PICK the beauty.
Rosie Rosie where for art though : at M&S ?!?! Yup M&S OMRosie-ness ok I’m all in…
If life gives you lemons…don’t make lemonade … turn them in a beauty therapy which packs a punch!
Rating; luscious, lovely, like-able, lively, live-longer, LEMONS ; who knew the humble LEMON had so many beauty uses & health benefits…I didn’t until now.
Inside scoop; 2 rather gorgeous kind ladies who I’d be utterly lost without (you know who you are….Kerry and Alex!) bought me a lemon tree as a present for my birthday and as a cheer me up from them and my team, having not been well. So at first I thought err ok erm thanks (and inside my head EEK EEK EEK how the hell am I going to keep THIS alive : see Facebook fake cactus post, I digress!). BUT then I read the letter it came with :
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 >>>
Inside scoop ; NEOM start end finish there. Think it must stand for Nice Energising Ohmygoodness Marvels ; well possibly not. Or yes if you are quite as in love with them as a brand as I am. Heaven-scent, easily-sent mail order, or in most if not ALL beauty emporiums, there’s is nothing this brand doesn’t do, including wonders for my Karma….ohmmmm
Thirsty Thursday calls ; don’t give in make tonight a pre-weekend beauty pamper night instead!
Rating ; Thirsty Thursday – that’s tip number 1 make Thursday a water-packed day to prepare you for the weekend ahead, albeit come Thursday I’m more than reaching for the wine! So if like me you’ve been way under your 5 a day too, throw in some vitamins as well. Next up for me in my Top 5 tips is anything beginning with a T!
Inside scoop ; Thursday is usually my Power-it-up for the weekend beauty night when I tend to Tan-Trim-Treat & Try. Whatever I’m up to I like to go into the weekend having at least scrubbed off some of a usually stressful week.
So if you’ve a quiet night in tonight and Thursday isn’t the new Friday for you then throw on the laundry, turn the volume up on the music and power through some of these for a quick fix beauty makeover which will have you Fresh for Friday.
Rating ; Whip-it, wipe it, wet it – Ok stay with me (wherever you are… and whatever you’re doing right now) tonight’s top (ok only) tip is a quick n easy skin-saving top tip: make sure you take it off (or at least some of it). I mean your make-up!
Inside scoop; Murder on the Dance floor ; maybe come midnight if you’re sporting Panda eyes. Happens to us all. So whether you’re watching Love Island or throwing shapes ten-cocktails in right now finding your next divine match; Saturday night’s only rule is TAKE IT OFF. That especially applies to your FACE!
So tonight it’s as simple as my golden rule; stuck to it for years no matter HOW good the night, HOW much wine I’ve had, at some point (no rules on when) I do take it off…not always all of it ;)! As much as I can. A wet wipe, a hot cloth, a quick dunk n splash but whatever you do whip of some of your make-up off, so that the morning after the night before is a little more bearable.
Since I was little my golden rule has served me well. Wedding, hen night, girl’s night, lad’s night, date night, no matter what once I’m home 9pm or 3am I whip it off….and if it’s good enough for Barry it’s good enough for me.
