6 types of Hair brushes explained

1.  Vented brush is good for reducing frizziness. It is also good to use when blow drying the air blows between the bristles to make your hair less static, and it helps your hair dry more quickly too.
2. The round brush is perfect for creating soft shape, body and movement in your hair. If you are looking for some serious volume and style then you will need a good round brush.
3. The Ceramic brush, these types of hairbrushes have ceramic-coated barrels, which retain heat and temperature when used with a blow dryer. This makes it ideal if you want to give your hair soft waves/loose curls, or if you just want to dry it quickly and evenly
4. You need a paddle brush if you are after super sleek, smooth hair then the paddle brush is the one to go for. Use it before you straighten your hair for best results. It is also ideal if you have a lot of hair, as the bush has a large surface area.

5. Synthetic bristle brush, no matter how tangled your hair may be, there is still a brush out there that's perfect for you! Try a synthetic bristle brush. The synthetic bristles easily go through your hair and leave it looking shiny, soft and tangle free.

 6. Barrel brushes are the ones you use if you want waves/curls to form. They are perfect for turning the ends of bobs under rather than having them fall straight, and for styling your bangs.

7 ways to treat and cover up sunburn

Coming from the UK i am blessed with very fair skin, however since moving to sunny Australia i have found that i can not walk to my mail box without getting sunburnt :( so i have come up with 7 tips to cover up sunburn so you don't stick out like a tomato in a group of peaches.

1. Before you start trying to cover up a sunburn, the first thing you want to do is treat the burn
Take an aspirin, have a cool shower and moisturize your skin to help it heal.

2. Use Products that contains lactic acid will help with skin cell turnover and humectants attract water and increases flexibility of skin. Try to stay away moisturizers with emollients (like an ointment) which can actually irritate skin that’s been sunburned.

3.  Apply suncream, look for physical suncreams that contain zinc oxide or titanium oxide. Some people avoid physical suncreams because they tend to leave a white cast, but you can easily cover that up with makeup.

4. When you are sunburnt your skin is very red and you want to tone it down a bit, By using a green or yellow tinted moisturizer which hydrates while minimizing redness. This will help ease irritation and flushing and it also contains a slight color correcting tint to conceal redness.

5.  Apply hypoallergenic mineral makeup which will help cover up redness, offer sun protection and give you light and comfortable coverage. If you’re not a fan of mineral makeup, i suggest using airbrush spray makeup and tapping it very lightly with a non-latex sponge.

6.  Applying bronzer will help tone down redness on your forehead, nose, chin and cheeks as well as balance out your skin tone. Pick a bronzer color that doesn’t contain a lot of pink pigments and apply it very gently with a brush to reduce the redness of sunburn.

7.  You might have some areas that need a little more coverage than others and if so, you’ll want to pick up a corrective yellow concealer in stick form which is thicker in consistency. If you don't use a mineral powder for foundation, you can use a hypoallergenic powder to set your makeup and you’re all done!
Before

After

extra tip : While you have a sunburn, avoid any type of shimmery makeup which will actually accentuate the burned areas.

7 mascara tips for fuller lashes




  1. Apply two coats of mascara to build up the coverage, One surefire mascara trick for fuller lashes is to apply two coats of mascara! Now, you want to apply the mascara when the first coat is still wet.                     .     . 
  2. Adding powder on your lashes, I actually had no idea that putting a bit of powder on your lashes before you put on your mascara can make your lashes look totally plump and oh-so-full!                                                                                     . 
  3. Clear Primer, Before you put on any powder or any mascara, just make sure that you that you are slipping into some clear primer!                                                                                       .     
  4.  Use brown and black mascara! All you do is use brown mascara first, then go lightly over it with the black! It'll give your lashes dimension and make them look so pretty!                                                                                         .              
  5.  Another mascara trick that I use all of the time to really make my lashes look full and thick is applying the mascara to the underside of my lashes.                                                                                               .
  6. By using a zig-zag motion with your brush you can really make sure that each and every lash is coated up and looks beautiful!                                                                                                 .        
  7. Blinking can coat your eyelashes wicked easily and can make sure that even the small, tiny lashes get coated! For me, what I do is I blink, zig-zag and then blink again.
