How to Self Tan Your Face


Has anyone else done a fake tanning session at home, only to find it washes off their face pretty much straight away and they are left with a ghost face / orange chest look? Fake tan usually lasts on the body a lot longer but, because we are always applying different products to our faces and washing it, it disappears from your face quite quickly. But there are a few products I like to use to help prep my face for fake tan as well as applying and maintaining it.

MUA Lipstick Review and Giveaway



Nothing makes me happier than a bargain makeup brand with high quality, and I've been turning to the high street more often to discover new products and stock up on some of my favourite beauty brands.

Make Up Academy (MUA) is just one of the brands I've been loving recently. Stocked exclusively at Superdrug it offers bargain prices, with lipsticks starting from just £1 and foundations starting from just £4. Their Luxe range also offers beautiful baked blusher palettes, matte liquid lipsticks and colour correcting kits.

Top Nail Polish Shades for Summer



As you would have seen in my last blog post, for me summer is all about bright colours and having fun with what we wear. It's the rare occasion in the year that I brave getting my feet out so I like to make sure my toe nails are filed neatly and painted with a bright colour.

Gel nail polishes are my personal favourite as the high shine makes nails look plumpier, healthier and a little more professional. I rarely get my nails done in a salon and instead invest in a good quality nail polish that will last a long time. I've built up a collection of Nails Inc Gel Effect Polishes over the last year (TK Maxx sells them at bargain prices!) and my current favourite shades are (from left to right in the top image): Kensington High Street, Lexington Gardens, Kensington Passage and Soho Place. All of Nails Inc's classic colours are named after places in London and I particularly love these as they are bright colourful shades.




As part of a new campaign by Destination2.co.uk to find The Perfect Summer Nails, I also decided to experiment with some new nail shades this summer and got Nails Inc's latest set - the Sparkle Like a Unicorn Kit. It contains two irridescent polishes that bring gleam and sparkle to the nails. One is Rainbow Wishes, a soft sheen rainbow shade with blues and purples, and the other is Dream Dust, a sparkly bronze with 3D pigment.

Depending where you travel to this summer you can match your nails to the type of location you're visiting. For beach holidays I'd pick a bright shade like Nails Inc Kensington Passage or Soho Place, for sightseeing and city breaks I'd go for a classic shade like Kensington High Street or even a nude shade, and for travelling or party holidays I'd use the Sparkle like a Unicorn kit to jazz up my look!
