Boutique Beauty Hacks #1

As you might have guessed, there’s nothing I love more than talking about beauty with you gals, my friends, family, cats, that random lady at the bus stop… the list goes on and on. Of course holy grails, make up crushes and the perfect mint nail polish are really great topics, but best of all are those secret beauty hacks which make all the difference in feeling fabulous fast. That's the exact reason I've started this side series sharing the tips 'n' tricks that are getting me through busy modern life right now, in the hope that you'll a learn a little something new and help each other (and me) right back... 

    FAKE UP THE WAKE UP // Keep your eye cream in the fridge and pop a thick layer under your eyes on particularly sleepy mornings for a makeshift eye mask that nourishes, hydrates and wakes you up big time! Leave for ten minutes and pat in the excess. My current cream of choice is Benefit’s ‘it’s potent!’

GREEN IS GOOD // Embrace the mess you make when cutting up an avocado and instead of washing that green goo off right away, massage it into your hands focussing on the nails and cuticles- it’s natures very own super conditioning hand/nail cream with essential oils to leave everything super soft!

DITCH THE DIGESTIVES // Love fake tanning but hate smelling of digestives? Gently pat a gorgeous smelling body butter onto the skin right before you the leave the house, focusing on the arm, neck and chest area. I use Soap & Glory’s Righteous Butter and it keeps me bronzed but biscuit free all day long.

PANDA V POWDER // If you’re fed up with liner and mascara that smudges and transfers like no tomorrow make sure to lightly loose powder your whole eye area before and after you apply your eye make up to ensure an oil free base is created and the artwork is set in place. What panda eyes?

YOU GLOW GIRL // Most people think you should simply conceal imperfections and never highlight them. However, priming with a liquid highlighter like the 17 Skin Wow reflects light away from blemishes/scarring, giving you a seriously gorgeous glowing base that allows you to wear less foundation which will also last longer.

What are your top beauty hacks? I'll include my favourites in next month's post!
