Shhhh... It's a secret!

Secrets from the fashion and beauty world are hidden all over with high flying make-up artists, design teams and all the way down to the teenage girls experimenting with their next new look.  Some of them we will never hear, while others I'm here to share. So here you are; 

1.  Say 'NO' to the sponge!
Do you pick your sponge because they're the cheaper option? Well do I have news for you. Sponges may seem the cheaper option but each time you place your foundation on they're absorbing the product and leaving you with less for your money, which maybe precious pennies down the drain. So why not opt for a brush or use them fingers, they're free after all? 

2. A splash of cold.
Lack that shine in your hair? Do you feel it's a little bit lifeless? Why not when you finish your shower, switch that hot to cold and splash your hair with cold . The cold water will seal the follicle locking in your conditioner keeping it shinier for longer. Worth a try, right? 

3.  The perfect pout
Feeling your lips are a bit on the thin side? Want a fuller look? Try using a nude lip liner, or a colour similar to your complexion colour and slightly extend your natural lip line. Then fill in with your favourite lipstick and be careful not to extend them too much, we don't want to be looking like clowns.

Bonus: Once doing this add some clear lip gloss to the centre of your top lip to create an even fuller lip look.

Some of these secrets are used from Hollywood to you local beautician, so why not give them a go and see if they work for you? 
If you like this post, let me know and I will be sure to share some more beauty secrets to keep you looking fresh and beautiful everywhere you go.
