I often find that at the end of a work day – my clients or models always look fab but I don’t get a minute for myself… which results in a rather messy looking makeup artist! So I thought with the very busy Fashion week looming and a hectic end of January work schedule that I should find a few ways for a touch of instant easy glamour that won’t need a touch up.
So first stop was Blink – a little grooming bar in Selfridges- they are also in House of Frasier and Harvey Nicks. I went in for a set of eyelash extensions- The treatment only took a half an hour- what bliss- gorgeous full lush lashes- no mascara, waking up to flirty peepers and not having to worry about eye makeup down my face at the end of a shoot day. They last for about 2 weeks. The therapist gave me a choice of lengths to choose from. I decided on the medium length. I was very pleasantly surprised at how natural they looked- like mine but fuller, blacker- pure gorgeous. Blink also offer a full threading service for those brave enough.
Next I decided my eyebrows needed a good once over. I truly believe that if you have lovely shaped brows it doesn’t matter what makeup you wear, even if its nothing at all- you will look polished. I went over to the Bliss counter where I had an eyebrow wax that was very gentle. What was exceptional about this service that the money I spent on the waxing was redeemable against any Bliss purchases; Bonus!
Finally on my way home I picked up my favourite fake tan- Piz Buin Moose. I find this product easy to use with lovely results- caramel brown rather than typical tango orange. And it’s a reasonably priced product.
Now that that’s all done – I can concentrate on my work!
