HD Brows were the big thing in 2013, the REVOLUTION of brows I’d say. Over the past few years the eyebrow has become the feature of the face girls and guys are starting to take more time on. Before, it was always a quick wax, TOO much tweezing and the look to go for was the less hair the better… that is most definitely not the case anymore. Now its all about shape, growth and tint!

 

I have been lucky to have a best friend who specialises in eyebrows, she has always loved keeping my brows at top notch and it would be the one thing I’d ask her to do on EVERY night out when we were in college. She is even luckier to have naturally shaped and basically amazing brows but she still takes the time to ensure they are again, top notch! Most girls have a tantrum about what to wear when planning a night out, or that their hair has gone wrong… but I always remember Nicole would be the one tantruming about her eyebrows… even though they always looked perfect!

Nicole and her natural but defined Brows

Anyway, she now is trained in HD Brows and I would reccomend HD Brows to anyone and everyone- girls AND GUYS! (Yes guys its important to maintain your brows too)… Anyone based in the Manchester area should visit The Eyebrow Hotel (http://www.theeyebrowhotel.co.uk/). Nicole will help to regrow your brows if they have been abused by the tweezers, she will talk you through what she is going to do and how the shape she chooses is specific to your facial shape and trust me once they are done you will notice the difference it has on the facial features! It not only is a High Definition for the brows but it completely highlights and lifts your features. The Eyebrow Hotel offers advice and tips at any time and will guide you on the DO’s and DONT’s in between appointments.

SAY NO TO THE SCOUSE BROW…

I think people are confused with the HD Brow and the Scouse Brow…PLEASE don’t get confused with these 2. HD Brows are still natural looking and only enhance the hair you have and help to regrow the hair that is needed to add to the natural but defined shape. Scouse Brows are the complete opposite… block, dark, thick, squared, oval, oddly shaped (and quite frankly scary to look at). The shape is everything! If you are drawing your own eyebrows on, a tip is to use a sharp pencil, be light and use small flicks – do not press hard and use thick lines to colour in the whole brow and make a square or oval block shape at the start of the brows. Here are a few examples of what NOT to do…

We Love TEA!

Today is a messy/chatty day...

Today is a messy/chatty day…

Everyone who works in an office knows the number one most important necessity is…

    a cup of tea/coffee

The first thing we all do, is make a brew. Spending 37-40 hours a week at your desk its safe to say we go through ALOT of cups of tea’s! So for christmas, off our lovely adopted work mother Angela, we each got cup that represented our personalities. Chloe- Little Miss Chatterbox (i think we both could be the chatterboxes, maybe of the whole office? ha) and Grania- Little Miss Messy, oh no wait sorry… MR Messy… Angela insists there was no Little MISS Messy ones and there was no hidden messages behind this… hmmm!

So we thought we would share our lovely presents and write a pretty pointless random blog…

Today is a messy day, Today is a chatty day…

Hype about Haim

Okay, so I thought my first post would be about one of my favourite albums at the moment: Haim – Days Are Gone. Haim are a rock/alternative trio that consists of three sisters from California and my love for them grew in Summer 2013 when I saw them at T in the Park in Scotland (amazing, friendly festival that’s definitely worth a visit) and Leeds Festival (just one word- cerrrrazy!) and it just spiralled from there really. Haim are always compared to the sounds of Fleetwood Mac but I think they have their own individual and funky vibe that just puts you in one “awesome” mood… Thought I’d go all American on you seeing as they’re from Los Angeles. ‘Days Are Gone’ is their debut album but oh boy they have started with a bang! I think this is the only album I was willing to spend over a tenner for! But now it’s in HMV for £4.99… That is one fab-u-lous bargain! Get it quick! My favourite tunes are: Forever, Falling and Let Me Go but honestly all of them I can just listen to again and again.

If you’re looking for some new, edgy music or was wondering what the sudden hype about Haim was about then check out their album you will NOT be disappointed!

Matte the look…MAC it up

The Godess of MAC...

The Godess of MAC…


MAC make-up cosmetics are known to be brilliant. Used by top Make up Artists, celebs and models. I use all their products and so long as I put the time into finding the right colour for my skin tone, I’m never disapointed. But, my all time favourite item that is a ‘must have’ in my bag at all times… is the *Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder* ! For £20, I personally feel this is a bargain for the results and how long it lasts. It may look like its going to turn you into ‘Casper the friendly ghost,’ but trust the name when it says ‘transparent’ it really is, yet it works wonders. If you have trouble with your make up sliding off, or you have oily/greasy skin which shows up once you’ve done your make-up making the camera light bounce off those shiny parts when having a pic (or selfie… its ok its in the dictionary now its acceptable) then this is the product you need to invest in! I use it as part of my daily routine and keep it in my bag for emergencies! After i’ve finished applying my make up (works best when using either BB Cream or MAC Foundation) I add a dab of this powder to my bronzer brush and dab it all over my face and cheek/jaw bone area. Not only does it matte down the shine/oil and excess. It minimizes pores and gives it a ‘flawless’ finish! I especially rely on it when im out clubbing with the girls after having a good old boogy on the dancefloor and I’m feeling a little bit sweaty and hot, a quick trip to the toilets and a dab of this powder and I’m good to go again! I tend to suffer from break outs and oily skin, and my confidence is boosted instantly when I use this product along with the other MAC products. A little tip is to add a bit of highlighter to your cheek bones and temple after applying it just to keep the definition going around those areas that look best once highlighted.

Trust me girls, this is the investment of the year!
