8 Best Bedtime Beauty Rituals From Celebs

Here are 8 Bedtime beauty rituals that you can learn from various celebrities. Read the article below and discover all bedtime beauty rituals.




Is your nightime routine a little lacklustre? Take your beauty notes from these stars….

We all know the importance of a dedicated skincare regime when we’re awake – we’ve got our morning cleansing and exfoliating routine nailed. But making sure that level of care extends to nighttime is often a little more difficult…Mainly because we’re super-tired, and hitting the pillow face-down after a long day is higher up on our list of priorities than a 7-step cleansing ritual.

But we have to tell you – looking after your skin before bed is *just* as crucial as doing so in the daytime, because if you think about it, you’re asleep for a whopping third of the day, so failing to keep your skin clean, hydrated and moisterised for that length of time could speed up the ageing process and induce wrinkles. And if it’s one thing we don’t want to worry about right now, it’s wrinkles.That’s we’ve collected nighttime beauty tips from 8 celebs, as so you can revamp your bedtime beauty ritual…

1. Khloe Kardashian

2

Khloe’s routine is pretty kick-ass, and not all that complicated, which is a bonus. To start, Khloe removes all of her makeup with MAC face wipes because [‘you] gotta take off that face paint first’, she said on her app, adding that no-one should ‘skip this step’. Next, she washes her face with Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser, which she says is ‘hands-down the BEST cleanser for breakouts.’ Then she uses Bio Oil (which we can totally get from Boots), and lets it seep into her skin. Khloe also uses a clay facial mask, which is good for drawing out the skin’s impurities and toxins, before finishing things off with an overnight serum to keep her skin hydrated all night long. We reckon we can get on-board with Khlo-Money’s tips.

2. Suki Waterhouse

3

Retinol is a vitamin A derivative, which can help reduce the prevalence of acne and wrinkles, so no wonder Suki Waterhouse is an advocate. Speaking to The Telegraph, Suki she said she uses any retinol-heavy skin ‘at night twice a week’. We’re totally going to start checking all our cream labels, stat.

3. Jourdan Dunn

4

When Jourdan shared photos of her extensive range of favourite creams for day, night and facials on Instagram recently, the internet went into melt-down, mainly because there were like, 50 products that totalled around £200. But on closer inspection, the supermodel’s nighttime routine isn’t that bad, and she wrote online that all her product recommendations were totally genuine. Here’s the photo of her Sunday night facial process with the caption which read:’1. CLEANSE #EmmaHardie Moringa cleansing balm2. EXFOLIATE #PeterThomasRoth Pumpkin enzyme mask3. STEAM #SkinOwl beauty steam4. CLAY MASK #DrSebagh skin perfecting mask5.HYDRATING MASK #SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Masque6. EYE CREAM #EstèeLauder advanced night repair eye7. MOISTURIZE #PixiSkintreats Beauty Sleep Cream’

4. Kendall Jenner

5

Keeping things simple, Kendall told Estee Lauder that her ‘nighttime ritual is easy: Wash my face, hydrate, drink a relaxing tea and chill.’ Sounds good to us, Ken! The model also aid that when she does opt for a skincare product, her favourite is the ‘Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask’ which she applies once a week. ‘It is super hydrating and helps restore my skin’s brightness’ Kendall revealed. The super also swears by going bare-faced on a plane, adding: ‘I never wear makeup on the plane, that’s my number-one rule. I’ll moisturise before heading to the airport’.

5. Gwyneth Paltrow

6

As a self-taught natural health guru, Gwynnie knows why adopting a scrupulous beauty routine before bed can improve body and mind. ‘I take an Epsom salt bath every night to wind down’ the actress told Elle. ‘I use a lot of organic essential oils on my pressure points.’ Sounds like the perfect antidote to a stressful day.

6. Blake Lively

1
Blake’s blonde, toussled waves have become a signature part of her look, and she pays her locks close attention day and night. ‘My hair can get kind of frizzy and big, so I leave in a hair mask, rather than rinsing it out all the way’, she told Harpers Bazaar. Blake also recommends braiding your hair before bed: ‘Take the ponytail and braid it, kind of haphazardly, so that it’s not just three pieces of hair. You should take random chunks, braid it, and twist it. It’s a more interesting nighttime look that takes about 12 seconds’, she said.
 

7. Emma Watson 

7





A girl after our own heart, Emma knows that an arduous beauty routine isn’t always fun, and sometimes less is more: ‘I keep an emergency pack of makeup-remover wipes by my bed for when I’m too tired and really don’t want to go through the whole process’, she said to Glamour. But when she’s being good, Emma opts for Lancôme Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover because ‘after the red carpet or a shoot, this removes makeup without me having to scrub my eyes, which is horrible’ – yeah, we hate that too (the facial scrubbing – not the inconvenience of attending red carpet bashes, obvs).

8. Hilary Duff

8

Massaging your face or doing ‘facial yoga’, as it’s become known recently, is supposed to promote skin suppleness and firm up your facial muscles, and one fan is actress Hilary Duff. ‘I think that just massaging your face and using serums has changed my skin for the better’, she said. Well, if it works for Miss Duff…

[VIDEOS] The Best Braids For Fine, Slippery Hair That Will Stay In Place All Day

For those of you who are hair challenged like me, discovering the kinds of braids that work for fine, slippery hair is a godsend.





I was born with my mother’s fine locks but, additionally blessed with my father’s Italian genes as well. This means that while my hair is very fine, there is quite a lot of it to work with. I was also taught to wash my hair almost every day. It’s only really in the past year or two that I started to learn what hair experts recommended, and what the right techniques for healthy, and style-able Selena Gomez hair are.

For Bustle readers with hair like mine, the right prep makes a world of difference in achieving Pinterest-worthy braids. Christina Butcher, the author of 30 Braids in 30 Days, recommends adding dry shampoo to clean hair before attempting to style, according to the website Hair Romance. As Bustle previously reported, washed hair has a harder time taking to styling and braiding, but if you must wash, avoid ingredients in volumizing shampoos like ammonium lauryl sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate, Chaz Dean, creator ofWEN Hair Care recommended to Buzzfeed Life, “These ingredients are added to make the shampoo feel thicker and richer in your hand, and also to create the foaming lather people have come to expect. The reality is that these same ingredients are incredibly harsh and drying to your hair and scalp,” he told the publication.

Butcher recommends adding grip with a pinch of styling powder or styling mousse before you begin. During the braiding process itself, make sure to keep tension on your braid and use bobby pins to maintain structure. After the braid is looking satisfactory to you, spray, spray, spray, with hairspray straight from the musical.

Sally Hershberger Salon stylist Matt Fugate told Cosmopolitan UK, “The key to styling fine hair is making sure you always have a strong focal point. It adds dimension and the appearance of thickness, tricking one’s eye into thinking you have more hair.” For example, StyleCaster states that crown braids are “more delicate and smaller in diameter,” so finer hair takes to them better. The publication also recommends fishtail braids. With all of this in mind, here are a few braids for all fine-haired women to make your hair look as cool as LC’s and as thick as Zooey Deschanel.

1. Crown Braid

This crown braid tutorial is sure to make you look regal with volume!

2. Side Braid Bun

This cute side dutch braid is perfect for the every day effortlessly flawless look.

3. MilkMaid Braid

This milkmaid braid is sure to make you feel like you own a large milk conglomerate, rather than just one cow.

4. Side French Braid

OK, how great does this look?

5. Braid Out For Natural Hair






This braid out looks wonderful and she does a great job with the step-by-step for women with natural hair.

6. Waterfall Braid + Bow & Curls

The waterfall braid is a fine hair favorite.

7. Standard French Braid

OK, I know this video is from the early ’90s, but it works!

Christina Aguilera’s Latest Updo Is Pure Magic

Just when we thought Christina Aguilera ’s looks on The Voice couldn’t possibly get any sexier, she proved us wrong.





To be honest, nowadays, we’re watching the show not only for the talented contestants, but also because we know that every time we tune in, Christina Aguilera will be there to surprise us with her hair and makeup looks. And the latest episode was no exception.

The singer brought her A (beauty and fashion) game in a plunging silk dress, mesh stockings, and a bold pink lip. And her messy updo was a work of art created by Etienne Ortega. For a split second, we honestly thought she cut her hair and was rocking a tousled pixie with a little length left on top.

Nope, it’s just one amazing updo that we’re dying to recreate at home. Now where did all those bobby pins go?

Now, the question is… Can she top this?

Kylie Jenner’s Hair Evolution 2016: From Pink Ends To Pastel Hues

Check out the evolution of Kylie Jenner’s hair from pink ends to pastel hues. Have a look at this article to see all her amazing hair style.




The reality star freshens up her look with pink ends in Sept. 2011.

All about Kylie Jenner’s Hair: She is the youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, is known for her sudden hairstyle switch-ups since 2014 when she famously debuted a chopped bob with blue dip-dyed ends (which accompanied a suddenly larger pout). 

Since then, the celeb has been spotted with a new hairstyle (from bangs and lobs to full extensions) or hair color (she seems to gravitate towards the pastel hues) on a regular basis. 

Jenner’s latest hairdo, Coachella-appropriate pink and purple locks, makes it clear that her look has gone through a serious evolution since her early days a fledgling reality star.

Nail Art Trend: Aquarium Nails Are Now A Thing

It has finally happened: nail art has progressed so far beyond the normal realms of fashion that we’re not even dealing with nails anymore.




Yes, the time has come that tiny snow globes have been added onto finger tips in the form of aquarium nails – we kid you not. 

While this beauty trend isn’t exactly brand new, it’s been given new lease of life after going viral with a masterclass by Texas-based Tony’s Nails reaching a whopping 24 million views.  

Aquarium nails or ‘aqua tips’ aren’t your ordinary, two-dimensional manicures.

Nail Art

This ridic nail trend brings 3 dimensional, moving liquid right to your digits. If you’re into that kind of thing. 

A quick glance at Instagram (our measure of all things cool), really does confirm that mermaid nails are a thing right now. 

Essentially, aquarium nails are made when a double-paned acrylic is injected with baby oil and a whole lot of glitter. In other words, everything that shouldn’t happen to a mani is now happening. 

Yep, concealed beneath the surface of these nails, you’ll find small capsules filled with liquids to make little gems and glitter float around inside of them. So basically it’s like having mini snow globes stuffed inside your mani. Strange, but true. 

While you can take it to full mermaid levels, we reckon it’s a whole lot more desirable with just a hint of mermaid to an otherwise subtle manicure.





Nail Art

While mermaid, sea-like themes had a moment on the Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilotto catwalks last summer, in beauty it’s really amping up. But if you’re not ready to take the plunge and commit to dyeing your hair a siren-esque shade of blue a la Kylie Jenner, you’ll be glad to know there’s aquarium nails. 

But what we really want to know is, whatever happened to lick of classic red polish?

Inside The Makeup Bag Of Georgina Graham

You’ve probably seen Georgina Graham’s work on the beauty and fashion pages of magazines including Vogue (Paris, China, Japan, UK, Germany, Australia and Russia FYI), The Gentlewoman, i-D and Vanity Fair.





Or on the famous faces she’s made up, ranging from Sophia Loren and Naomi Campbell, to Chloe Moretz and Dree Hemingway. Here, the international makeup artist lets us peer into her sacred beauty kit to find out all her must-have products, and shares her secret tips and tricks of the trade.

If you had just five minutes to get ready, what would you do/use?


I am all about five minutes to get ready. Not because I don’t enjoy playing with skincare and makeup but because most days, I am pretty time-poor, so I look for easy-to-use, multi-functional products that are long lasting throughout the day and can be applied in the back of a taxi if need be to turn me from day to night.

Favourite foundation and why?

I don’t use foundation. I have never liked the feel or look of it on my skin. I like a tinted primer by bareMinerals or Sunday Riley and a tinted moisturiser by Laura Mercier or Obagi(a great dermatologist and cosmetic Asian brand that I discovered in Tokyo.) I want my skin to look flawless but feel natural and bare. Real skin is sexy to look at and to touch. So I am always looking for products that might improve the condition of my skin too. For friends and clients, I am a big fan of the Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion line and Chanel VitaLumiererange. A good tip is to apply with a damp beauty blender for a super light touch.

What’s your hair routine and favourite hair products?

If I go to a hair salon (about twice a year) I try to visit David Mallett in Paris or George Northwood in London, depending where I’m working and if they can fit me in. However, I luckily work with the best session hairdressers in the world and one of the perks of the job is asking if they wouldn’t mind giving me a trim every now and then. When they do my hair, I’m amazed at how, after just five minutes with their magic touch, I get my dream hair. I can do most things with a makeup brush but mostly fail trying to do my own hair. Luckily, I like messy, un-groomed hair that looks good mostly because of a decent hair cut!

At home I use John Masters Organics Rosemary and Lavender shampoo which I buy in Whole Foods and I like a leave in conditioner. I have one by Philip Kingsley that is fantastic. For styling I like a salt spray to give my hair a bit of texture as I always just naturally air dry and I found a brand in NY called Brooklyn Beach Hair that has seasonal fragrances; I like the summer smell because it makes me think of lazy days at the beach reading and swimming and getting (safely) tanned. I discovered Ted Gibson hair sheets in Sephora which are individual sachets that you wipe on your hair from root to tip to get rid of fly away static. I travel a lot for work and can arrive with my hair looking like I placed a finger in an electrical socket, and these are great for different humidities. I’m a fan of the classic Mason & Pearsonbrushes which I’ve had since I was a little girl, I find them comforting and familiar which is kind of strange to say about a hair brush. I have a Tangle Teezer to tackle the back of the head dreadlocks that appear every morning from nowhere.

What’s the one product you reach for to take you from day to night?

Probably my Bobbi Brown longwear wind-up eyeshadow stick. I use a shade called Bark which is a dirty brown earth tone that I ring around my eyes in about two seconds and then use a finger to smudge and smush in. This gives me instant sexy smoky eyes and can be as low key or intensely built up as you feel like. This is my favourite no-brainer makeup product and anyone can use it – they do tons of shades.

“I HAVE GIGGLED AT QUITE BIZARRE VIDEO TUTORIALS OF GIRLS USING BACKS OF SPOONS TO CONTOUR AND IN ONE, I SAW A GIRL DRAW AN EMOJI POO ON HER FOREHEAD.”

Do you contour and if so what do you use?

I really dislike this contour trend where I see girls shading their noses and faces to look like pre-surgery pen markings and they end up looking so heavily made up. It looks totally unreal and just like you’ve got dirt on your face. I have giggled at quite bizarre video tutorials of girls using backs of spoons to contour and in one, I saw a girl draw an emoji poo on her forehead. This is a trend that I think most makeup artists working in fashion are equally intrigued, amused and grossed out by.

I use a cream bronzer by Becca and I apply it on my cheekbones with a big, soft, round brush. Whatever product is left on the brush I run across my jawbone, neck and forehead for a bit of natural looking definition. If I want a powder bronzer, I use Chanel Les Beiges as they have a great colour range and look natural and light.

Can you remember the first beauty product you bought in your teens?

I think it was a Blistex frosted lip balm from Boots that I would keep in my pocket and wear when I left home to meet friends aged about 13. I remember also going to Kensington Market (a now defunct iconic fashion Mecca) on weekends and seeing all the Stargazer makeup – an old brand that punks, club kids and adventurous cool girls would wear. They always had highly pigmented products with tons of neon colours and I would lust after them, but not have the confidence to pick them up. I also loved Barry M for being fun and affordable and I used to play with all those little pigment pots and glitter pots in Topshop as a teen. I used to try to be like Angela Chase in My So Called Life. I remember buying Dewberry and White Musk perfume from The Body Shop. I bet I would heave if I smelt those now!

3

What’s the one product that you have re-purchased the most over the years?

For at least a decade I have bought YSL Touché Eclat in shade 3 for under my eyes to get rid of dark shadows or under eye circles. I love this product and I have it at all times in my makeup bag. I have most of the shades in my kits too for professional use. I like to mix it with a bit of eye cream to sheer it out.

What’s the most expensive, luxury beauty product you own?

I was in Las Vegas years ago and I bought a full size giant pot of Creme de la Mer moisturiser. I thought I had placed it in my check-in luggage, but stupidly I placed it in my carry on. In security at the airport the woman confiscated it for being over the amount to travel with by hand. I considered wrestling with her to try to get it back. I was so upset, but I have never made that mistake again. In my kit there are tons of hugely expensive lotions and potions that I am sent by kind PR’s but I am pretty low-key personally, so, honestly, nothing too expensive in my bathroom cabinet, but I do love niche brands such as Dr Jackson, African Botanics and RMS. I do like a fancy perfume – lately I have been into Frederic Malle Portrait of A Lady and that ain’t cheap. I often buy the travel sizes which are more affordable and if I get bored I can change things up with ease.

What’s your most trusty highstreet makeup product?

Lip balm. I buy from pharmacies and the French drugstore brands like Nuxe, La Roche Posay, Bioderma. I keep lip balm in every room in my house; in my handbags; in my car. I need to have emollient lips at all times! I also am a big fan of the Kiko exfoliating scrub wipes. One side removes makeup and the other side exfoliates. Brilliant tip is to use that side on lips to remove dry or flaky skin and then apply lip balm or lipstick.

Can you remember your worst beauty faux pas?

I had a particularly experimental time with my hair and makeup when I was at Manchester University. I had left an all girls boarding school where I had been trapped from 11-18 and this was my first time experiencing independence and freedom. My hair was all styles and lengths and colours at different times. I was influenced by gorgeous Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element. In recent times my worst beauty faux pas was trying a Brazilian blow dry one summer, thinking it would be good for a beach holiday and make me look a bit sleeker, however, in all my pictures from that hol I just look really unlike me and a bit sad. Then I tried eyelash extensions one year too and that looked good for about five minutes but when they shed you look weird and ill. When they are gone, you feel totally eye bald.

Favourite mascara and why?

I like MAC Haute & Naughty. It is a two-way brush that can be light and natural and heavy and intense. I love this mascara. I get scared they may discontinue it as all the products I personally like from MAC get discontinued. When I want full-on drama, I go for YSL mascara – they do a really great aubergine shade that I like as it makes my eyes really green, I apply one shade of black then the aubergine on top.

Favourite lip product?

A nude lip pencil. I like stripdown by MAC, nude by Serge Lutens, and medium nude by Kevyn Aucoin. I like to line my lips lightly with a nude pencil and fill in then add a bit of matte lip balm, blot, and repeat the process. That is my low key but sexy lip that is a bit Beatrice Dalle, a bit ’90s Linda Evangelista and a bit Brigitte Bardot… or Chanel-era Vanessa Paradis. I love how a really subtle lip pencil and balm can make anyone look scorchingly hot in an instant.

Which is the one, transformative beauty product that makes you feel your best?

For skincare, it’s a serum oil and at the moment, I switch between French brand Odacité who do small, cold pressed batches, and Tata Harper. I love a luxe hippy brand – that is probably my fetish – and something I always look for on my travels and online. These serum oils are products that my skin drinks up and afterwards it looks glowing, like I had some spa time. Makeup wise, it’s a brow product as I have always had crappy, thin and patchy brows. Luckily, I use a powder shadow by MAC in Coquette and an angled brush to fill in. I need to do this every day, even if I have no other makeup.

What’s your favourite beauty trend/look for SS16?

Personally I don’t follow trends, I just take simple steps to keep my skin looking great. It’s all about maintenance when you hit 30. I sometimes play around with a red lip. I used to like a really matte cherry red and now I play with stains and deeper red shades and some sheer textures. I love the Revlon Matte Balms – such a good, mega affordable product. I like my lashes to look really fluttery (think ’70s Marisa Berenson, Shelley Duvall or Sissy Spacek) with tons of mascara on top and bottom but I also love a bare lash look too. Sometimes I play with a liquid liner. For my liner I channel cool French chanteuses like Francoise Hardy. As for the shows, from SS16, I’d suggest trying out the metallic trend and high performance skin look. Try eyeshadows or eye pencils that have a metal sheen like a beautiful bronze or a soft gold. They work on all eye colours. As for skin, look for highlighters that add a glow like RMS Living Luminizer or Topshop highlighter sticks.

Top Tips For The Perfect Prom Beauty Look

PROM preparations are not cheap – you’ve found the dress of your dreams, shopped for shoes and booked the biggest limo to transport you and your squad to your school leavers’ ball.





All that’s left is your make-up, but if you want to reign in the spends, why not have a go at giving yourself a prom-inspired make-over. Thomas Hope, owner and head stylist at Touched, and Leoni Lea, senior beauty therapist at the Werrington Road salon told us how to achieve a picture-perfect look.

Make-up

Leoni gave Nikita Trehan, aged 17, a glamorous evening look that’ll look perfect for the big night.

Prime

Leoni said: “To ensure your make-up lasts all evening prep the skin with a primer before applying any products. This will even out your complexion, hydrate the skin and remove any excess oil to ensure your make-up looks flawless.”

Concealer

“This is a perfect product to mask any dark circles under the eyes, blemishes and spots that you may have.”

Leoni advises to apply a thin, even amount over areas you wish to cover.

Foundation

“As cameras will be around you all evening, foundation is perfect to give you a fresh and flawless look.

“Ensure you choose a foundation as close to your natural skin tone and blend the product onto the neck to avoid any foundation lines around the jaw area.”

Blusher

“Bronzed colours are the perfect shade to complement any skin tone and face shape, apply to the cheek bones and brush up towards the temples to give you a perfect healthy glow.”

Eyes

“Prom make-up is all about the eyes,” said Leoni. “Create a classic, elegant look by choosing a smokey eye that uses more natural light shades and dark greys.

“You could add a hint of colour – try the shade of your prom dress, then finish off by adding a touch of black winged eyeliner to enhance your eye shape.”

Lashes

“A set of Nouveau natural strip lashes are the perfect addition to any eye make-up. Apply them as close to your lash line as possible. These will last all evening and once taken off, can be re-used.”

Lips

“Using a nude coloured lip gloss apply a generous amount to your lips to complete your prom look. This will emphasise your eyes and give you the perfect finish.”



Hair

Touched owner Thomas Hope gave Naya Nash, aged 17, from Fulford a stunning up-do perfect for a prom. If you’ve not decided how to wear your hair, Thomas encourages his clients to play with modern looks.

He said: “Prom hair conjures up images of perfectly formed curls and plenty of hairspray, whereas for 2016 the hair trends are much more versatile.

“Gone are the days of one traditional look taking over the dancefloor. We now see an array of braids, twists, voluminous ponytails and creative up-looks designed to match the individuality of each person.

“We are finding that our younger clients like Naya take inspiration from the catwalk and celebrity world like never before.”

According to stylist Thomas, the biggest looks for this year’s prom season are new takes on the classic textured up-do.

“Whether that’s all up or half up or even wearing your hair left down and swept to the side, this style is so versatile.

“Another key trend this season is texture.

“You could play curls in a loose tousled fashion or rock it up a bit and wear it sharp and straight while keeping some natural movement.

“The best advice I can offer is to just embrace your individual style, let go, and have a ball.”

Taylor Swift Hair Transformation

Have a look at Taylor Swift’s hair transformation. From the long dark brown hair to the sexy bleached bob. It’s trending and many have noticed.

Last season we saw bleached bobs everywhere, ice blonde was the thing. Taylor Swift obviously takes notice of these things, and so, for her epic weekend at Coachella, supporting boyfriend Calvin Harris, watching him on stage with Rihanna, she debuted a whole new look.

Shorter, much much whiter with a chopped in fringe and softness around the face. This, in Taylors own words, is ‘BLEACHELLA’. We’re booking our ice-appointments now. (Then cancelling them because our hair would not take the abuse).

She would need to super-condition, maintain every couple of months and have a hairstylist on hand to tame the frizz. Lucky she’s Taylor Swift then, hey?

5 Temporary Beauty Fixes For When You Don’t Have Time To Visit The Salon

If you like looking polished but don’t have the time, money or patience for Salon visit. Read below and discover 5 temporary beauty fixes.





If you hate holiday chat with the hairdresser, have disastrous dates with the nail technician or just sit and cry in pain at the waxing salon, here are some temporary beauty fixes to tide you over.

When you have more bare nail than polish

 

A photo posted by Laura Pearson-Smith (@lpearsonsmith) on

It’s annoying when you have perfect chip-free gel nails but the look is let down by regrowth.
Salon sessions are expensive, so keep your manicure intact longer by filling in the space between your cuticle and the polish with a glitter topcoat.

When your hair is starting to resemble a zebra

When you have a stripe down the middle of your head from root regrowth and don’t have the time to let a professional tend to your tresses, backcomb your roots for some lift and wear your hair parted to the side to limit the discolouration on show.

Or, you could always go down the Miley Cyrus-loved #BLOW salon route by covering them with glitter.

When you are growing your own fur coat

If you prefer to stay fuzz free but can’t keep to your next waxing appointment, you can always shave. Just remember that you’ll need to wait around two weeks afterwards to get enough regrowth to go back to waxing again.

When your eyebrows are out of control

If your eyebrows are off doing their own thing and not even the best brow taming products can keep them looking sleek, it’s time to use the power of your makeup bag.

It’s not a good idea to start plucking your own brows if you don’t know what you’re doing, so fill in your brow shape as normal, then cover the hairs you want to hide with a concealer that matches your skin tone.



When your hair has the same amount of style as a bale of hay
