1. B Blunt Back To Life Dry Shampoo
If you’ve been reading us for a while now then you would know that we strongly believe in the power of a good dry shampoo. If you haven’t gotten your hands on a bottle yet then, girl, what are you waiting for? We really like this one as it really does bring some instant freshness to unwashed, limp and oily strands. We all have those days when we just don’t feel like or don’t have the time to wash our hair, and with a bottle of this handy, it won’t even matter. The dashes of white powder disappear easily once you massage your scalp or brush it out and you’re left with visible freshness and some bounce. It’s reasonably priced and totally worth it!
We don’t need to tell you twice just how much bold, well-defined brows can change up your look. Just look at Deepika Padukone in her recent films. We love this double-ended brow pencil because, well, fab brows all year round! Yes, in between those threading appointments too! It is double ended, with a soft pencil on one side and a powder sponge on the other. Use the pencil to outline your brows for a defined shape and even to fill in gaps. The powder is great for smudging and blending as you don’t want any unnatural harsh lines. It’s really simple to use and can help you look well-groomed always.
Beauty junkie or not, every girl needs a good eye shadow palette to add some magic to her eyes. This one tops our list of faves as it comes with 8 matte shades and 8 shimmery shades that range from neutrals to dark colours. It’s perfect for fitting all your moods, like subtle for the day, smoky for the night, or simply highlighting your brown bone and crease. You can play around with the mattes and metallic for something fun every single day! Oh, and it comes with a double-ended brush – one side to sweep on the colour and the other to smudge and blend. We know you’ll love it as much as we do!
This cleanser, toner, makeup remover is a 3-in-1 savior for your skin; it’s also fantastic for sensitive skin types like myself. Forget rubbing and scrubbing your skin to remove makeup, all you need is some of this and a cotton pad to gently take it all off while leaving your skin feeling supple and hydrated. It can also be used as a cleanser. Micellar water is a beauty game-changer and is made from micelles, tiny balls of cleansing molecules that float in water. It’s becoming quite a cult across the world for its hydrating and cleansing properties without needing to wash or rinse your face with water. A cotton pad soaked in this formula is perfect for cleansing your face in bed after a long night. Even lazy girls have no excuse now!
Pantone has named not one but two colours for the year of 2016 – Serenity and Rose Quartz. In layperson terms, Serenity is a calming shade of baby blue while Rose Quartz is a pretty pale pink. Both are beautiful hues for a gorgeous, totally on-trend mani. We picked Revlon Nail Art in Northern Lights because we love the option of adding some sparkle to this fun, blue shade and Revlon Nail Enamel in Charmed for flirty, pink tips. Both colours will help ensure your fingertips look pretty and stylish all year round!
