THE FIVE STAR TREATMENT FOR YOUR CUTICLES…

It’s that time of year when your nails start to feel dull, and fragile and brittle. But have no fear as Sally Hanson has a ‘Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil’, which acts like a mega-moisturizing dose of TLC to thirsty skin and bring dry, brittle nails back to life in seconds.

Drop on and massage in every night, this reviving elixir contains Vitamin E, wheatgerm, apricot kernel, aloe and panthenol to soften cuticles and condition nails so they never feel the need to break again.

#VINTAGE BEAUTY ADS BY MAYBELLINE…

 
 
I just love vintage beauty ads and these two 1960’s Maybelline Adverts are brilliant. 
 
The first one is for the  ‘New Automatic Magic Mascara’, which is REALLY waterproof without any sting or smart and separates and curls lashes in a new gentler way. It comes in for colours, velvet black, sable brown, midnight blue and jade green !!!!!!!!!
 
 
 
 
The next one is for their Ultra brow, which is just like the ones on the market nowadays and comes complete with contour brush in the lovely ivory with golden rose case.
 
Do you have a vintage favourite beauty advert?
 
 



BOOK REVIEW – SUPERMODEL TIPS – RUNWAY SECRETS FROM THE WORLD’S TOP MODELS…

Supermodel Tips by Carly Hobbs came out in August but I have only just had chance to read and review this book. Although I’m not a big fan of these type of books the fact that Carly had managed to get so many tips from top models prompted me to buy it.

Just a few of the tips included –
‘Twist up your hair after you’ve washed it and let it dry like that. When you let it down, it will have a gorgeous natural wave’ Naomi Campbell

‘After applying your lipstick, blot your lips with your fingers and then pat the remaining colour on your cheeks for an instant glow’ Kate Moss

‘Use intensive masks on your tresses and have it trimmed regularly, I also take vitamin supplements to keep my hair healthy from the inside out’ Eva Herzigova
It’s crammed to the brim with insider tips and tricks on all things in beauty to achieve the best results.

I know we don’t like to talk Christmas just yet, but I do think this book would make a great stocking filler for anyone interested in beauty.
