Le Tan Uber Dark Self Tanning – Violet Base

 

Although I’m not tanning it up on a European holiday right now, Le Tan’s new range would have you fooled. I used one of their new self-tans with a violet base and it gave me a bronzed glow that – after only four hours – developed the same level of richness you would see after a month of European sunshine. The new Uber Dark range comes in four variants, perfectly suited to your skin type and it really works. Continue reading

Soft curls at Blown Luxe Bar Baragna

I visited a beautiful new makeup and hair styling bar in Barangaroo, Sydney called Blown Lux. Less than a month old, it’s clear this luxury beauty salon is going to be a hit.

To Be Beyoncé

Update 14/7/17 >> Now that Sir Carter and Rumi have entered the world… From Queen to Goddess, Beyoncé has reached a saintly level. Yet, in some ways, she is so relatable, right? Maybe it’s because she has just had twins and I get what she may have gone through. But the bigger Bey gets the more reach she has. Yes, Beyonce is out of this world, so full of love beauty and life on and off stage. But at the end of the day, she is a woman who does some incredible things. I wanted to explore that a little more so I had to dedicate a post to her and all the women she has empowered. #Bowdown 👸

Why do we love Bey? Her music? Becuase she is a Mum? Is she not afraid to be as beautiful as she is? Or maybe it’s because stands up for her rights and the people around her, she does what she can to make a difference and believes? I’ll go with D. All of the above! Continue reading

How To Glow Like Hailey Baldwin

As you know, I love a simple glow so was very excited when beauty it-girl Hailey Baldwin released her makeup line with ModelCo cosmetics. In Nov’17 the much loved Aussie beauty brand known for its quality affordable products launched the new collab, and it sold out straight away. Now, it has never been easier to re-create the Guess Model and socialite’s ‘no makeup’ makeup look she is famous for.

How To Protect Your Skin From Pollution

I missed an opportunity to go to a talk on ‘Protecting your skin from pollution’. I simply did not want to buy into another excuse to cram more product onto my overfilled shelf. Had I gone to the talk, I would not have had to dig up my own research. Pollution’s effect on skin is often overlooked, especially for us city folk.

Protecting skin against wrinkles has been the focus of anti-ageing skincare forever, but in today’s society, age is not the only culprit. Environmental factors affect every aspect of our lives including premature ageing. You can thank this for your fine lines, dark spots and dehydrated skin well before we start the ageing process. It’s accelerated by extrinsic factors such as pollution, sun and cigarette smoke. Nothing to fear, but something to be aware of.
