  • Get the wedding look

    When the first hand written cards begin to arrive through your letterbox it means one thing ladies, it’s wedding season.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if your first thought was what to wear. Am I right? Well you’re forgiven, providing the second thing on your mind was your make-up.

    Yes, well that’s where we at The Salon Look can lend an expert hand.

    You may be lucky enough to get a call up to the whole day, in which case you will be wondering which products will last the duration and not leave you needing to re-do throughout the event.

    Begin with a primer. This is a must have item for anyone wanting to ensure their pores are not visible as it seals the small pockets and stops foundation sinking into them. Primer also works for wrinkles as it smoothens them out, creating a flawless look. It also softens the skin and creates a smooth base for the rest of your make-up.

    But the main reason to use primer ladies, is it helps your make-up stay on longer and when you could be out from as early as 10am until midnight this is vital. Try our Thalgo Source Marine Perfect Glow Primer.truematchminerals

    Choosing a foundation is important any day of the week but when it needs to last from dawn til dusk the way you apply can also make a difference. Start by selecting the right kind of formula for your skin. This could be cream or liquid for those with dry skin or oil free, powder or mineral foundation for us girls with oily faces.

    Don’t use too much foundation and then apply with a brush. This allows you to get even coverage without over doing the product.

    L’Oréal True Match Minerals Foundation comes with an applicator brush making it easy to use. It also provides SPF15 to help protect your skin against the sun, should you get the chance to enjoy an alfresco toast to the happy couple.

    night-day-blackNow whether you will be at the wedding all day or all night a classic smoky eye is a good call, as it can be played up or down. Be sure to start with a powder base and then begin by tracing the top lash line with an eye pencil. A liner that lasts all day is L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Liner.

    Then move onto the eyelid using the lightest colours first gradually building to the darker colours on the outer area of the lid. Always remember to blend upward and outward girls! smoky eye

    Evening guests can layer up the darker colours for a more dramatic look while day guests should make good use of the highlighter colours to open up the eye area, especially in the centre. The L’Oréal Color Riche Smoky eye shadow palette offers the colours needed to create the effect.

    Don’t forget to finish the eyes off with some mascara this will also open the eyes up making them appear larger. The Maybelline Mascara Falsies Big Eyes Waterproof Black is perfect for this as it lengthens the lashes and with it being waterproof you won’t be left with panda eyes should you shed a tear during the vows or the perhaps the first dance.maybelline

    Keep it understated with lips to create a timeless look that works all day and night – and most importantly won’t over shadow the bride!

  • How to create the best bun

    Hello lovely ladies,

    As ever The Salon Look is always thinking of ways to make your life better – and easier!

    The classic bun has been topping the fashion stakes for a while now and it’s not going anywhere.

    We think it’s the perfect way to stay cool this summer as well as complimenting the kimono, which is still a big look this summer.

    Today I have once again teamed up with the rest of the crew at Love the Salon and we have been practising our best buns so you can look great, with minimal fuss but maximum effect.

    Check out this three-minute video where you will get a step-by-step guide to creating the best bun – from back combing the hair to ensure the style stays in place and securing the pieces of hair with bobby pins.

     

    As you can see girls this is a top style for any occasion, whether you’re heading to an important work meeting and need a no fuss look or planning a night out, the bun is a good choice.

    So ladies to sum up grab some Bed Head Hard Head Hairspray, a handful of bobby pins and a comb and you’re good to go.

  • Stay Festival Fresh this summer

    LADIES, festival season is upon us. It’s time to shake it to your favourite band in a field of muddy campers. There will be smiles, hopefully some sun and let’s face it, loads of selfies.

    So the question is, how do you look your best after a few nights squished up against your mates in a tent, with no hairdryer and without the usual array of products to hand?

    01. colour-wand-fashion-207Well, that’s where we can lend a helpful hand. Kate Moss eat your heart out, the Salon Look is about to make sure everyone looks festival fresh and fabulous from top to toe this summer!

    The first place to start is your hair. Now girls if you fancy something a bit different this summer, aka Kylie Jenner’s blue locks at Coachella, check out the Colour Wand Hair Mascara. These little gems will cast a colour spell upon your hair and are available in a variety of colour ranges; fashion, natural and glitter.

    Whatever you dec01. tna_freshdustide to do with the colour of your hair, be it bright orange or a natural brunette, you will want to keep it looking clean. All hail dry shampoo. This phenomenon allows you to add lift to your hair. But more than that it will leave your locks feeling – and looking – soft and refreshed. Check out Techni Art Fresh Dust. To use spray on the root section by section to refresh the hair, not only will it give you instant freshness but it s also great to use to add volume and texture – perfect as a base for creating the perfect fishtail plait on day tow. And one last little dry shampoo tip – don’t spray too close to the root unless you want to look like you’re going grey!

    03. skin-purifying-wipes-20packAfter a day of dancing under the sun and the stars your skin will be crying out for some attention. It’s important not to neglect it, even just for a few days. For ease of use and potential limited access to a water supply I recommend Dermalogica Medibac Skin Purifying Wipes. Whenever you feel the need to freshen up your face, simply wipe and enjoy the instant clean feeling.

    04. evo_soapdodger_300mlWhile you may not want to start the day in a queue for the showers you - and the person standing next to you – will be glad you did when the DJ tells you to throw your hands up. Evo’s Soap Dodger Body Wash is a great shout as it’s non-drying and gently cleans leaving you feeling clean and raring to go.

    05. sun_face_protection_spf50Now this is the most important item ladies, sun protection! It is essential that whatever the weather you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, leaving you to worry about more important things – like which band is up next. For your face grab some Garnier Ambre Solaire BB Face Protection, which offers SPF50+ - a must for anyone who is going to be exposed to the sun – as well as being tinted for coverage and an even skin tone.

    Finish your look with some make-up that will last the day and night. Pump up your lashes with some Maybelline Mascara Falsies Big Eyes Waterproof in black. This will magnify your eyes making them look wide-awake.

     

    Add to the look with the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Liner 303 Shimmering Black. This has a long-lasting formula, which gives you an intense colour for up to 16 hours. It even has a built-in sharpener means you can also draw a sharp even line, wherever you are!
    Stand out from the crowd with a finishing touch of Glitter Lips. From Dark Disorder to Diamond in the Buff the range of colours won’t leave you wanting. Go wild and grab a range of colours to shake things up day to day and make sure you leave everyone wandering who the girl with the glittery lips was!
