Here are some of the questions we are frequently asked:
Q. I have become addicted to having lash extensions as I love how bright eyed and glamourous they make me look & feel, however, I realise that having them applied regularly are damaging my lashes, can you recommend a mascara that gives the same effect ?
A. We have just taken on an amazing new mascara called Magnetic Lash. This mascara is hands down the closest thing to false lashes!
It contains Hyaluronic Acid to keep lashes moisturized. Vitamin E to reduce environmental stress, and contains blue and violet pigment to give it a nice Black Velvet sheen. The fibres are completely natural. Its also much easier to remove at the end of the day, which is such a relief when youve had a good night out.
If you are a contact lens wearer, don't be put off by the fibres irritating your eyes, this soon wears off. No other mascara gives the same effect!
Q. My hair is greasy on top but dry on the ends.. How do I get that perfect shine on my hair without it looking too greasy but also treat the ends and help the dryness?
A. Moroccan Oil is an amazing treatment and styling product in one! Apply a very small amount onto towel dried hair, mid length to the end of your ends and style as normal. This gives a beautiful shine to the hair once dried, plus benefiting the dry ends. Another trick is to put a couple of pumps onto your hair - root to end and sleep in it as an intensive treatment. When you wash it out your hair is so silky smooth :)
Q. I want my eyelashes to look long and curly but not too thick and fake looking. I seem to either find mascara's too thick or not noticeable at all! Is there a happy medium...?
A. Yes!! Eyeko is a new brand to us and offers 3 different types of mascaras with different ingredients to achieve the perfect lash. I would recommend the Skinny mascara for an individual lash look with length and curl, always curl lashes first and comb through mascara with a wand to remove any clumps.
Q. I get my eyebrows threaded and they are the perfect shape but they seem to look bushy & unruly. Do I need more threading done? Can anything help this?
A. If you have the perfect shape then don't get more taken off. Use the Becca brow gel instead. This is a clear gel that you can apply onto the brows to keep them in place. After applying - they won't budge!
Q. I need to invest in an eye cream, I am in my early 30's so want to start using an anti ageing product but also need something that will help my bad under eye circles. Can you recommend anything that is not loaded with chemicals?
A. Oskia have an amazing eye serum called eye wonder. They are a nutritional skincare range, very natural and 100% active ingredients. It is very hydrating which will help the darkness. The nutrients, peptides and antioxidants help any signs of ageing too. So for fine lines, but also works as a preventative. It also helps any puffiness too :)
Q: What can I use to create tousled/wavy hair?
A: If you've ever tried Surf Spray by Bumble & Bumble then you'll love this: Shu Uemura's Liquid Fabric mineral texture spray invigorates and refines curls with a weightless control.
Use it on damp hair and dry with a diffuser or just leave it to dry naturally. Simple but effective!
Q: How do I prevent my nail polish from chipping?
A: Using a really good base-coat and top-coat is the key for a longer lasting manicure, along with a nourishing nail oil for daily use.
Butter London's Nail foundation has a slight fleshy colour, which gives a great base for any colour.
The Hardwear top-coat not only dries quickly but also keeps your polish on for longer. The Butter London products are 3 Free, which means they do not contain Formaldehyde, Touylene or DBP, they'll be extra kind to your nails! Add a nail oil such as Solar Oil: adding a few drops on top of nail colour daily will ensure a longer lasting manicure & healthy nails.
