Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty

It’s no secret, I love beauty products and I truly love ones that work and do what they say they will! Therefore this month, I wanted to share my top 5 beauty must-haves you’ll want this Winter.Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty

Liz Earle Deep Nourishing Mask…

From time to time, and especially as the weather begins to get colder, my patch of eczema can start to appear again. This mask has become a real hero product for me and has really helped to keep my skin nourished. Double cleanse as normal, pat dry and then apply a generous layer of the mask, leave for 10-15 minutes and remove with the hot cloth. I promise, your skin will feel absolutely amazing afterwards!

Sienna X One Hour Mousse…

This is my go-to tan and is perfect for those last minute nights out! It allows me to achieve a flawless finish without the 8-10 hour development time. For best results, always pair with the Secret Tan Primer and Mitt. Apply in circular motions, sweeping over hands and feet. Shower off after just 60 minutes* and allow your golden glow to develop over the next 2-8 hours.

*Can be left on for up to 3 hours, depending on desired shade.Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty

Sienna X Radiance Body Balm…

It’s important to keep our skin nourished and hydrated throughout the Winter months. The cold weather and central heating can play havoc and really dry out our skin. I couldn’t be without this! It really enhances the appearance of my skin, even without a tan, plus it smells absolutely divine!Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty

Benefit Mascara “They’re Real”…

I struggled for ages to find a mascara that I liked. I was tired of seeing the adverts, seeing models with beautiful long, voluminous lashes, only to see at the bottom of the screen, “this advert has been filmed with lash inserts” So basically, my lashes aren’t going to look anything like this then are they? However, I’m really glad to say, They’re Real give my lashes a fuller, thicker look… Thank you Benefit Cosmetics for giving us girls a mascara we can rely on!Be Beautiful Hair & Beauty

MAC Pro Longwear Lipstick…

This is one of my favourite lipsticks! It’s really nice to wear, without the sticky feeling that some lipsticks can give and it genuinely lasts really well! There are lots of colours within the Pro Longwear collection to suit every occasion and skin tone. For longer lasting results with any lipstick, I would always use a lip pencil and colour in your full lip. This might sound odd, but give it a try!

Until next time, have a very Merry Christmas!

All You Need To Know About Self Tanning…

Self Tanning products can leave you feeling a little nervous and with so many options available, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. So, whether you are a first time self tanner or a pro, I’m here to help you discover all you need to know…

2

The One Hour Self Tan Tinted Lotion… This tan is perfect for those of you who are short of time and don’t want to sit around, waiting for your tan to develop. You can shower after just one hour and watch your tan develop further over the next 1-4 hours. Leaving you with a gorgeous light to medium tan. Depending on skin tone, results may vary.

3

Gradual Glowing Self Tan… This is perfect for enhancing your tan or creating one. It gradually builds up the colour as desired. If you like your tan a little darker, then this one can be re-applied. It also contains an anti-cellulite formula, which helps to tone and smooth the skin! I really love this product and personally, this is my favourite as you can build up the colour to get your desired result!

4

Q10 Self Tan Tinted Mist… This is a brilliant product for topping up your tan and is a “spray tan in a can”. It provides instant colour when you need it and takes up to 8 hours to fully develop. With a 360° nozzle, it makes it really easy to apply. Simply hold the can 15-20cm away from the body and spray, allow to dry before dressing. This is another real favourite of mine, it’s quick, easy and no mess! This can also be re-applied to create a darker looking result.

5

Deep Self Tan Lotion… This one has a strong instant guide colour, making it really easy to apply. It develops within 8 hours and once it’s been washed off, you will be left with flawless, deep rich colour. I would recommend this one for darker skin tones or if you like a medium to dark tan.

6

Q10 Bronzing Mousse… Like many of the products within the range, this one is an award winner! This is a dark tan mousse again with a visible guide colour for easy application. It will begin developing within 2-4 hours and should be rinsed off after 8 hours. As with the Deep Self Tan Lotion, I would recommend this one for darker skin tones that like a richer, deeper looking tan.

7

Finally, I would always recommend using Sienna X Secret Tan Primer and Luxury Tanning Mitt when applying any self-tanning product. The Primer needs to be applied to hands, elbows, knees and ankles along with any other dry areas to ensure you create a natural looking tan. The Tanning Mitt helps to create a flawless and streak free application and avoids your palms being left with a tan!

If you would like any additional information about any of the range, or you would like some tips on using any of these products at home, then I would love to hear from you, simply leave me a comment below or pop over to my Facebook page.

Happy Tanning!

How To Get The Best From Your Spray Tan

How To Get The Best From Your Spray Tan-8

A spray tan can not only enhance how you look, it can also enhance how you feel. It’s no secret that I love the benefits a tan gives, feeling more confident and slimmer to name but a few. But what are the secrets to owning that golden glow for as long as possible, and just how can you get the best from your spray tan?

It all starts with good preparation and by using Polishing Body Scrub, you are creating the perfect base for your professional spray tan or self tan to be applied. The fine pumice helps to gently remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and silky soft.

After your tan has been applied, the next step is to prolong it. Balance Body Wash is ideal for this. It’s pH balanced formula means its gentle enough to use all over the body, including your face. Unlike other shower gels that may encourage your tan to fade, Balance Body Wash is packed full of natural ingredients to help look after your skin, as well as your tan.

Sienna X Aftercare-2

Finally you can protect your gorgeous glow by using Radiance Body Balm. This luxurious moisturiser should be used daily to keep skin nourished and hydrated. If your skin becomes too dry this will cause your tan to fade quicker.

If you want something to top up your tan at home, I personally love Express Tanning Mist. It has a 360º nozzle, which makes it hassle free and really easy to apply. It provides instant colour and develops fully in just 2-4 hours.

By following these steps you can really get the best from your spray tan. If you would like any more information on any of the Sienna X products I have mentioned above, then please feel free to get in touch. You can leave a comment below or come and say hello over on my Facebook page.

In the meantime, enjoy being the most beautiful version of yourself!
