5 Beauty Tips to Add Some Glam to your Look

chunky chain necklace

It can be hard work looking and feeling good all the time.  And let’s face it – spending a lot of time on a beauty routine can be the last thing you want to do in the morning.  It doesn’t always have to be that time-consuming. We have come up with some top beauty tips that will have you feeling glam in no time.

Look Tanned and Toned

If you are on the tired side or sleep deprived – it can make you look pale.  There are some great fake tans out there that will have you looking like a golden goddess, and even make you look more toned.  They are usually easy to apply – which means you don’t need to worry about streaks too much, and it can be done very quickly.  A top tip for this is to make sure you exfoliate so your skin is in the best condition.

Put your Hair in an Updo

Spending ages straightening or curling your hair in the morning is the last thing you want to do when you are in a rush.  Why not put your hair up in a sexy updo? If you aren’t the best in the hair care department – there are lots of online tutorials that will give you a step-by-step guide, so you are a pro in no time.  If you want to go really glam, you can even add a sparkly hair accessory.  

Long and Luscious Eyelashes

We all crave for long eyelashes, they accentuate your eyes – and add a little something to your overall look.  If you aren’t lucky enough to have naturally long lashes, you can get easy to apply extensions. You can get excellent eyelash extension supplies from The Lash Professional which will give you the quality look you’re dying to achieve – that will add the length and volume to your lashes that you are looking for.  This is perfect for adding a little glam to your day without too much effort.

Jewellery Goes a Long Way

If you don’t have time to look out an outfit the night before or are in too much of a rush to raid your wardrobe last minute – add a bit of glam with some jewelry.   Adding some sparkly earrings – or a necklace can give your outfit the boost that it needs and transform it from something casual to something fashionable.

Let your Lips Tell a Story

Even if the rest of your makeup is on the neutral side, you can make bold statements with what you choose to put on your lips.  You can go all out, and opt for the bright red – or else there are some great shimmery lip glosses on the market that will plump your lips and leave them with a shine.  

If you want to add a little bit of glam to your life, but don’t necessarily have all the time in the world to do it – hopefully these top tips will have helped.

50 shades of Beige for Spring

50 shades of beige for spring

As much as beige gets a lots of bad rap and is considered by many lifeless and unexciting, I love wearing it in all its varying shades and this season (luckily for me and maybe you too if you share my love for neutrals) there is no shortage of gorgeous beige/neutral pieces all over the high street since beige made into the most wanted trends for Spring 19 after all the SS19 fashion shows.

The trend was championed by the major designers all over the runways not only by the usual suspects like Max Mara and Burberry but also by much bolder designers that normally steer away from such neutral shades.

For me, and many others out there, beige is a classic and always chic. Beige is versatile and can be paired with most colours and it works well if you want to wear it head to toe too. In fact, head to toe is the word for SS19 but of course we always have to make trends our own and wear them whichever way they work best for us in our daily lives.

This season beige is no longer boring in fact quite the opposite. If you still have your doubts just keep scrolling down and get inspired by some of my favourite beige looks.
