More and more, nail art is becoming super popular and on trend. I am seeing it on pretty nails and toes. Nail art can be really unique and even seasonal. Christmas themed nails are popular in December and now with the sun and the warmer weather, nail art is very feminine with lighter colours and sweet flowers put on toes for a perfect summer themed pedicure.
Now, we have a better understanding of the long term damage that the sun can cause. At the same time, self-tanners have improved and can now provide a real looking tan on the skin. To find out the top tips on how to use self tanners and get the best glow, I spoke with Alyson Hogg, Founder and CEO, Vita Liberata.
If you have ever watched a red carpet event, tuned into an awards show or flipped open a fashion magazine, you have most likely seen the work of the talented celebrity makeup artist and photographer, Troy Jensen. His signature style is a radiant look that goes beyond the makeup and draws attention to the woman wearing it.
It is easier to add than it is to take away. Start with small amounts and gently blend until even along your jaw line, face and neck. A great trick if you have your blouse or top on is to drape a towel around your neck, so the foundation doesn't flake on to your top or blouse during the application process.
I now believe having my nails kept clean and neat finishes off any outfit nicely. My nails can be a nice compliment to what I am wearing or my mood. Recently, I spoke with Irene Lee, the owner of Pure Nail Bar and she shared with me some of her tips to keep nails neat looking and the hottest nail trends for spring.
Getting a facial done at the spa is one of life's great pleasures. It is relaxing and my skin always feels amazing when it's done. It is good as a treat, but can get pricey if you get them done regularly. I wanted to learn more about the top tips of how to do a mask at home, so I spoke with Sephora and they shared with me the top tips for doing a mask in the comfort of your own bathroom.
The natural 'wave' for my hair is mushroom style. If I let it dry on its own, with no product to tame it, there will be a full on poof on the top of my head. I was lucky enough recently to speak with Brennen Demelo, L'Oréal Professionnel Ambassador. Brennen shared with me his top tips for choosing the right products for your hair.
A few years ago, I purchased an eyeshadow brush from a cosmetics counter. Initially, I walked away after my purchase thinking, "I can't believe I just spent that much money on an eyeshadow brush." But then I brought it home and found that it does a much better job and made my life a lot easier than those little applicators that come with the eyeshadow set.
