Reverse Ombré

A little while ago I mentioned that I was liking the ombré look and thinking about the reverse ombré for myself.

Well, I just took the plunge!

By the way, I've just started using a mobile hairdresser and my oh my it's great to have someone come to you! But that's another post.

Anyway here is my reverse ombré hair-do before and after adding a little curl.

What do you think?

I could probably have been a bit braver and let her go a little higher up, but maybe next time.

Fruity hand sanitiser

Fruity hand sanitiser:

Found these fruity hand sanitisers in Wilkinson today for 50p - an absolute bargain I know!

I bought both the berry and citrus. They are mini 50ml bottles, so perfect for your handbang or in your room with your makeup.

They smell great and do the job. Get down to Wilko and buy these!

Blue tipped eye lashes

Today I just wanted to share a little makeup trick that I use. I know people tend to think of the 80s if you mention blue mascara, but used carefully it can be very effective.

I have the Rimmel Extra Super Lash mascara in shade 003 Electric Blue.

I apply a couple of coats of my usual black mascara, then apply this blue mascara just to the tips of my upper lashes. This ensures that it doesn't look over-powering and is nice and subtle to use during the day.It is noticeable up close and in a certain light and I get a lot of compliments on my eye makeup when I do this. I think it brings out the blue in my eyes!

It looks really obvious in the picture because of the flash, I promise it's not this "in your face" in the flesh!

Valentines heart nails

 Heart technique easiness:

I saw this tutorial on YouTube and thought of Valentines day. I've used the heart technique (which anyone can do with a hair grip/bobby pin - no specialist nail art tools needed) from the video to create a romantic valentines manicure.

Will go perfectly with my red dress!

ASOS £30


Pink version of the manicure:
