Intense but less dramatic brows

10850074_803207819743538_5393602846728291705_n

Transitioning to bold, strong and thick eyebrows may require some time to adjust, staring with a lot of patience for them to fill in especially if you have thinner eyebrows. Trust us when we say this – there is nothing that enhances your natural beauty than a pair of thick intense eyebrows. So here are some reasons for you to consider growing your brows into a bolder, thicker shape:

  • When done properly, strong eyebrows alone can serve as foundation, the need to apply makeup gets less.
  • How the eyebrows are falling can actually pinpoint to their natural growth pattern. This should be kept in mind when shaping your brows.
  • The bold, thick eyebrows can draw away from dark circles, giving a healthy glow instead.
  • Needless to say, they help you look more youthful and radiant, reflecting the effortless kind of beauty we all adore.
  • Full brows can work for anyone, given you find the right shape and reach those perfect proportions.

Key for this look is allowing the brow hairs from the front of the brow to the arch to grow longer. Keep your hands of tweezers and scissors.

If thick eyebrows is something you are considering, speak to us, ask us questions, we’ll be more than happy to help!

Lemon juice for scars

147688-283x424-woman-holding-lemonLemon juice is a great natural remedy for lightening minor scars. But like any natural remedy you have to be regular in application to see the results. Simply apply fresh lemon juice onto the scar with a cotton bud (Q tip) 2-3 times a day. Yes it may sting for about a minute, but it’s well worth it! Make sure you cleanse your face before applying lemon. Along with lightening the scars it will also help your skin restore some elasticity! Try this out and let us know, has it made a difference to your skin?

Eyeliner for the perfect rimmed look

eyeliner
Eyeliner on the waterline is prone to smudge and fade, but there is a way to avoid this and achieve a perfect lasting wear. Dip the tip of your black eyeliner pencil into gel eye liner and then apply to your waterline (top and bottom if you wish). This will give you a jet black liner, prevent liner from fading and give you the perfect rimmed look. We love Bobby Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner! Give it a try.

A miracle for dry hands

HelpingHands

If you have extremely sore and dry hands or normal dry hands, I personally find Helping Hands (hand cream) from Lush is truly an amazing product. You must try it.

Although I do not have sore hands, I do notice my hands feeling dry during the day (especially in winter) and find myself applying hand cream several times to keep my hands moisturised.

In the case of Helping Hands cream, I applied it in the morning and noticed my hands were surprisingly moisturised for the whole day. Even after washing my hands several times, they felt hydrated, nourished and moisturised. There was no need to re-apply the cream. The difference is noticeable after just one application. Truly impressed.

The cream is not too greasy, the smell is neutral and nice – nothing too strong. I would say both men and women can use it. It is very nourishing and great value for money (£7.50/100gm).

Looks like this may be my all time favourite hand cream – I’m loving it.

Hair braids and Hair extensions

hair-weave-track

Beauty should not hurt, if you’ve had hair extensions weaved in and your head hurts, that’s possibly because your braids are too tight.

Do not ignore this by taking aspirin! Tension is not good for your hair, hairline and scalp – this will cause damage. So make sure that your stylist is not braiding your hair too tight when preparing your hair for weaving. This will be painful and cause the hair to break – leading to hair extensions horror stories.

Getting your hair braided should not be painful, before, during or after.

If you have any questions about hair extensions, contact us and speak to our experts!

Trimming your brows

brow cutTo complete your defined brow look, trim your brows to perfection. When trimming your eyebrows, use a disposable or an old mascara brush to comb the hair upwards and then trim the long hairs. Do not over cut your hair as these will stick out of your brow shape which looks  odd. If you comb them up and nothing stands out, they probably don’t need to be trimmed. Brush them back in to shape. The result will be a much more defined brows!

Eyebrow grooming rules for men

Mengrooming

Never underestimate the power of the brows to change your face. So here are some key rules to remember when it comes to eyebrow grooming for men:

  1. Always keep brows full and not too thin
  2. Keep to your natural shape and remove the unwanted hair,  stay away from creating arches which makes them look too feminine
  3. Sometimes it’s just about tidying up, so thread the glabella (area between the two brows) and trim your brows using scissors, avoid tweezing
  4. If you are looking to change the shape, seek professionals advice

Bye Bye Dark Circles

coconuts-and-coconut-oil

Recently we found that coconut oil does work well to reduce dark circles. Here’s the thing, before you go to sleep, dab some pure coconut oil on the eye lids and under the eye making sure your dark circles are covered (don’t forget to remove your makeup and cleanse your skin beforehand). Leave this on and go off to sleep. When you wake up just wipe away with a warm wet flannel.

Make this your routine for the next 3 weeks every night and see the difference. It gives a soothe effect to the eyes from within and also helps you fall asleep. Try it and let us know!
