GETTING THAT NEW YEARS EVE GLOW

source

First; start the day with a big glass of water followed by hot lemon to flush out the toxins to give you that kick start to the day. 

Have some fresh fruit like blueberries, kiwi fruit , mango & oranges to give your skin some antioxidants. Little tip; try adding some chia seeds and goji berries to it as well. 

Going for a 30 minute walk, yoga or run this will kick start your metabolism.

When you get home have a big glass of water with some fresh lemon or lime in it.

Then before having your shower, do some dry body brushing (You can buy the best one here)!! - This will give your skin an instant glow...

Now time for a shower-

Start the shower very hot for 2 mins, then cold for 1 minute. Do this a few times to get that skin pumping and get the cirulation going. Doing this everyday will help firm & tone the skin and boost your immune system.

While your still in the shower, give your body a good scrub! This will get rid of all those uneven dead skin cells and promote smooth glowing skin.

I like to use:

1/2 sugar
1/4 olive oil
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
Mix all together. Apply all over the body and scrub scrub scrub.
Please note: always do a test patch first.

For your face, I like to use some Bi-carb soda mixed in with some water to make a paste... Just apply all over the face. Scrub and then rinse off.

Mask time: coconut oil mask.
Apply a thick layer of coconut oil to the face and neck, leave for 15 mins, then rinse off with a face washer.
Great for all skin types.

So now it time to fake it with the summer glow!! Please remember to always apply fake tan evenly and wash your hands well afterwards.
I love using ECO TAN - You can buy it here!!! 


Ok so I have been talking about getting the body ready!! Its time to get skin specific... 
Face time:
So the time coming when it means getting ready! And your thinking right! 
Make -up time... where do I start right? Well I have some tips for you...

First, always start with a fresh face -  cleanse . Tone . and Moisturise!
Then, because you want your make up to stay on for the night with all that dancing; using a primer under your foundation will do the trick!!! This will help your make up stay on and be long lasting.

So you have your primer on, now putting on your foundation you should be going with less is more!!!! You can always add more! (Its a lot harder to rub off if you put to much on right away).  Always blend and watch your neck line!! There is nothing worse in seeing someone with a face full of make up and it's not blended.
Choosing a colour that matches your skin is the key! You can always add bronzer to add more depth in colour.

Little tip; adding some illuminator to your foundation will give your skin a really dewy look and it looks amazing.

Once your foundation is on and the colour is right, and well blended its time to add some concealer.

Concealer should always be a shade lighter than your foundation.
I like to conceal under my eyes around your nose, and blemishes if you have any....

Once that's done its time to add some colour to your face (that's if you need any) with bronzer! I like to add it to my nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin. Always make sure you are blending well down the neck.

Little tip; you can also add some to your chest or arms if you want some more colour. 

I like using a little blush! This gives you that little glow to high light the cheeks. To apply, suck your cheeks together and then apply it to your cheek bone. Once again, less is more!!! Peach and pink colours are great colour's to work with and they look great.

Eye work- 

Eyes can be tricky so make sure you blend, and when using a eye pencil always sharpen it well so you get an even straight line.
If you make any little mistake's use a cotton tip to remove.

If you are wearing dark smoky eyes, then nude lips look the best.

If you are wearing bright red lips, then try just doing some soft gold over your eye lids.
Don't go matching matching!!!

To finish your look, apply some colour to your nails and toes!!!!!

And most of all; have fun..... Xxx and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Ps..... Please remove your make up when you get home!!!
