Skin care? Been there!

I have spent most of my teenage, and early adult life scouring supermarket, and cosmetic store shelves, to find the latest and greatest innovation in skin care products, and if anything, it has left me feeling deflated, and unsatisfied.

Tama Ra Soiree Makeup Look

Last Saturday saw myself and my talented team working our magic at the 2nd edition of Tama Ra Soiree. The event is held every first Saturday of the month in the heart of London at the Holiday Inn, Bloomsbury.

Guests are treated to a night of music, art and live entertainment with an all you can eat Caribbean buffet – yummy!

Fashions Finest teamed up with with CEO Of Tama Ra Soiree Hazel Jordan to bring a showcase of fashion at the event. Each event features a different designer with their latest collections modelled by models in a catwalk showcase around the grand luxurious event room.

My job is to design a suitable makeup and hair look to match the designer that month and their wonderful collection.

Last Saturday we had the pleasure of working with Helen Woolams of Hellavagirl and her sequinned collection. Glitz, glam and glamour are just a few words that spring to mind when thinking of Helen’s collection.

To match her designs I knew I had to create a look that was as equally stunning as her glorious gowns. GLITTER!!

I chose glitter as the main focus for the makeup. Sparkling colours to match the sparkling sequins in the designs – perfect! I talked to my team about picking colours from the designs and incorporating one colour into the glitter eye makeup. Keeping the rest of the makeup minimal so that the eyes really popped with the dresses, I chose a natural nude lip with lots of gloss to enhance the glamorous look even more. Fresh dewy slightly highlighted skin and a pop of blush is all that was needed for the skin. Hair was kept simple popped back into a bun or pony or left natural.

S/S 2015 summer make-up trends – TIP 2

I bring you my 2nd hottest summer make-up trend that you can achieve in minutes….

Trend two…. Soften those lips

 

By soften I don't mean keeping those luscious lips of yours soft, but of course that goes without saying.. Always use a lip scrub twice a week and balm daily throughout the day, but what I mean is keep those lipstick colours slightly smudged this season. You want to create a soft focused look on the lips.. Perfectly straight bold lip line is out and slightly smudged long wear looking lips is in.

SS 15 tip 2

Trick

Apply your lipstick how you would normally, don't concentrate on creating the perfect straight line as that's not required for this hot look, instead apply quickly. This may be enough to create the smudged effect or if it's not simply take a cotton bud and roll inwards along the lip line. This will diffuse the edges making them look smoking hot and smudged. Simple.. Now you're ready to show off your beautiful lips in this seasons hottest lip trend.

Summer Fruits

Summer Fruits1

Just because summer is still deciding, whether or not she wants to brace us with her presence, does not mean that we cannot enjoy the fruits of her labour. Juicy, sweet smelling summer fruits!!!

My favourite fruity skincare

Mango body scrub

Mango

Rich in Vitamin A, which helps to rid your skin of dead cells and gives life to new cells. You can eat half of the Mango and use the other half for a sweet summer scrub

Ingredients
• 1 Mango
• 2 teaspoons of Oats
• 1 teaspoon of Honey

Put the cut up mango (cut into chunks) in a blender until it’s a smooth puree, then mix in the oats and honey and stir well. Use it in or before showering, applying it in circular motion, from your feet moving upwards, all over body, scrub for 2-5 minutes then rinse and moisturise well.

Can be enjoyed by all skin types

Blackberries

blackberries

These little berries are full of vitamin A and C and high in antioxidants that fights against free radical that causes premature aging. So the perfect anti-aging agent. Can be used in a sugar scrub or mask.

Ingredients for Blackberry mask
• 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 1/4 cup black berries

Mix together in blender until mixture is nice and smooth Apply face and leave on for 10-20 minutes and rinse off
I recommend the Blackberry mask for the summer time, as too much sun time, can contribute to skin aging.

Pineapple

pineapple

The enzymes and AHAs found in pineapples are natural exfoliates and skin lightener. The Bromelain enzyme in pineapples helps to remove of the outer layer of skin, and reduces age spots and wrinkles.

Pineapple Sugar Body Scrub

Put pieces of pineapple in blender and blend until a smooth puree, mix in the sugar and add oil of your choice. Scrub away to bright glowing skin.

Strawberries
