FESTIVAL HAIR IDEAS

Check out how I style Festival Fashion – Parklife edition

Advertisements

Hey guys!

This is long overdue. I’m sorry – life’s taken over the past few weeks, I’ve started a new job (yay!) which I’m gratefully loving, new career, new direction so I’ve been mega busy and my blog has been getting some weekly loving but nowhere near as much as I was posting 😦 I do have reasons as well as me starting a new job! Something very exciting has come up – I was contacted by the lovely managing editor of julietturnsthepage.com to write for her website which I’m SUPER excited about! You can have a little nosey at my profile here

It would be amazing if you could show me some love over there 🙂 

I’m also trying to step up my game with YouTube at the minute, I have lots of ideas of new vids coming up so make sure you don’t miss me…..! 

Anyway… Let’s get to the nitty gritty it’s what you all came here for 😉 – Festival season is upon us and my first one this month was Parklife, Manchester. It featured chemical brothers, Hannah wants, Jamie XX, Jasper Jones, Katy B, DJ Koze, Meme and LOADS more. I couldn’t help but take the opportunity to dress up as a glitter fairy (yeah yeah I know this look may have been over done BUT I LOVE IT MAN!).

GLITTER ME UP

I started with the glitter hair fashion statement. I mixed up fustian glitter with silver glitter and wet look hair gel. I popped half my hair up into a bobble and slapped on the glitter to my routes! This look was inspired by Tasha Leelyn on YouTube which I’m sure you’ve had the pleasure of watching already!

GLITTER BINDI

I took some tiny coloured gems which I found in the £1 shop! Now, this is where I improvised and got creative. I added 3 gems to the middle of my forehand and added silvery glitter around them sticking them on with eyelash glue! I say the spontaneous the better that way you will create a super individual look to suit your own style. Go crazy with colour and you’ll stand out from the crowd!

 

I had a cracking time at Parklife – did any of my lovely readers attend? And are any of you guys planning any other festivals this year?
Lots of love xxxx

5 simple steps: how to organise your makeup bag to have happy, healthy skin.

Guest post by Zara Lewis

Why not declutter your makeup bag to become a beauty friendly zone?

Everybody knows the importance of using eco-friendly products which are good for the health of our planet, but what about our own health? With every aspect of life being practically ‘poisoned’ with genetically modified food, artificial ingredients, and synthetic products, it is extremely difficult to live a truly healthy life, but that doesn’t mean we should not try. Eating clean we can manage, but what about makeup?

Clean up – seriously!

Throw everything out – on the table, of course, and wash the empty bag (hand wash if necessary, and throw in washing machine if not).  While the bag is drying, take a good look at everything you have spread all over the table or counter. Anything that leaks or looks broken should leave your makeup bag immediately. Old mascaras which are dry already? Old foundations even though you have new ones? More than 3 eyeliners? Out with them and good riddance! Six packages of eye shadows that fall apart and smell funny? You should switch to organic eye shadow instead, it’s much healthier and easier to use. Dirty old makeup you seldom use is the perfect place for bacteria to grow, and you don’t want that on your face, do you?

Make your own lip balm

Make your own lip balm DIY

We all have a lip balm in your makeup bags, but we seldom look at the labels. If you want to steer clear of chemical-ridden lip glosses and lip balms, make your own using only four ingredients:

  • Mango or cocoa butter (2 tablespoons)
  • Virgin coconut oil (2 tablespoons)
  • Beeswax, shredded (2 tablespoons)
  • Vanilla extract (1 tsp)

Mix all ingredients except vanilla in a mason jar, and place it in water which you slowly heat so that oil and wax melt. Once melted, add vanilla and pour into lip balm containers.

Protect your hands

We tend to forget about our hands until they become dry and itchy, and then it takes them long to recover. Many women choose to carry hand moisturisers in their bad, but not in their makeup bags, so when the change handbags it stays forgotten. Find a healthy hand moisturiser that supports skin’s natural moisturising factor which is perfect for staying hydrated and well protected.

Stay (healthily) covered

By using primer, foundation, bronzer, and highlighter you are definitely clogging your pores and damaging your skin (not to mention clogging your makeup bag as well!). So try swapping them for a healthier option and try mineral foundations instead. Not only are these natural and extremely good for all skin types, but they cover our skin wonderfully and give it a health glow. Today you have much more foundations on the market and you can choose loose powders, tinted moisturisers, and liquids.

Keep your brushes in order

It doesn’t really matter whether you use natural or synthetic brushes or what brand name is written on the handle, the most important things is to keep them clean. If you are worried about using too aggressive chemicals which might get stuck between bristles, you can use simple ingredients which are more than effective: dish soap and olive oil. Mix two liquids together and work wet brush into the mixture, rinse thoroughly while gently squeezing so that water reaches every bristle, and leave to air dry (handle should be higher than bristles). If you use sponges, wash them with soap at least once a week.

MAKEUP BRUSHES WHAT TO BUY

Decluttering your makeup bag is not easy, especially if you are a beauty addict who is in love with every single one of her eyeliners, lipsticks, and nail polishes, but you have to draw a line somewhere and get rid of things you no longer use. Don’t forget that consistency is the key – keep your makeup bag clean and your skin healthy, clean up the clutter which will inevitably show up at least twice a year, and make sure you only use products that are not past their expiration date.

Clean cut yet edgy. Spring Style. Biker chick. Minimalistic. Grey, White, Black – Is how I’d describe this look. I’m usually one for crazy patterns and colour clashing outfits but I wanted to put together a crisp looking outfit with an edge just in time for Spring. Although the Manchester weather means a massive scarf is needed!

IMOGEN TWITTER HEADER

I love getting to know other bloggers (mainly because I’m nosey) and I haven’t written a get to know me tag yet so here goes…

1. What is your middle name?:

Rose, My name is Imogen Rose (Felt like a 007 agent saying that)

2. What was favourite subject at school?:

Art, I’m not afraid to say I wasn’t very academic at school – I’m more the creative type. 

Canon camera Photographer

3. What is your favourite drink?:

Hmm, Are we talking alcoholic or non alcoholic? If we’re talking alcohol, I’ve just started to LOVE red wine which is weird because I used to hate it or gin, I love gin! My non alcoholic drink would be peppermint tea.

4. Favourite song at the moment?:

Hmm, I rarely have a ‘favourite’ song but I mentioned in my February Favourites I have been loving James Bay – Let it go recently.

5. What accent do you have?

I’m originally from the Midlands (Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom) but I’ve lived in Manchester and London for the past 4 years. I would say I have a midlands accent – Fancy a cheese cob?

6. Favourite City in the UK?

This is a hard one…I still have places I would like to visit in the UK, but out of the ones I have seen I would say Newcastle or Manchester (Although I do love London, this is super hard. Can you tell I’m an indecisive person yet?)

Manchester Canal
Beautiful Manchester – Who wouldn’t love a view like that?

 

7. Where would you travel to?

Australia, New Zealand, Goa, Rome, Amsterdam, New York, Iceland… + so many more!

No, I live with my boyfriend Liam, who I love (blergh get out Imogen, stop being so soppy). I’m not sure how I feel about marriage. My parents divorced when I was about 5. Most of my family believe marriage is very important but I don’t know if a piece of paper is a way to prove you love someone for life. That’s not to say I definitely don’t want too, I’m still trying to form opinions myself 🙂

13. Do you have any pets?:

No I really want a sausage dog – Liam, can we?
