Top Tips for Amazing Skin

2016-01-29 11:10:19

Read on for our top tips on how to get amazing skin...

1. Stay hydrated

The benefits of drinking water are endless, and it’s free, so it seems silly not to be taking advantage of the great things water can do for skin. Aim to drink 2 litres a day and if you’re not a fan of plain water add a slice of lemon or lime (great antioxidants). This will help to flush out toxins and leave skin hydrated, clearer and toned!


2. Get your beauty sleep

Our hectic lives can make it difficult to get in the recommended 7/8 hours of sleep but it doesn’t half do our skin (and under eye bags) some good. Put down the phone, switch off the TV and make time before bed to unwind. Read a book, listen to relaxing music or complete a crossword to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. Busy weekend partying? You’ve always got our trusty AmazingConcealer® to hide those pesky dark circles until you get a chance to catch up on your sleep.


3. Leave pimples alone

We’ve all been there, a pimple appears at the most inconvenient time and all you want to do is squeeze it. Step away from the mirror and give skin the time to do its thing. You should only ever pop a pimple when it’s ready otherwise it can lead to infections or scaring! In the meantime the AmazingConcealer® will cover any pesky spots and help you achieve a flawless complexion. Read our tips on the right way to conceal a blemish!


4. Care for your skin

It’s an obvious one right? But so many of us don’t take the time to care for skin properly. Neglecting your skincare routine can often have disastrous effects so make sure make-up is always fully removed before bed. We recommend double cleansing to ensure all impurities are removed and skin is left clean and fresh. Using a good exfoliating scrub (physical, chemical, or both) once a week is also a great way to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and leave skin brighter!

With wedding season soon approaching, we thought we’d put together some handy tips to ensure that your desired beauty look will be at its best and top tips for ensuring this look lasts all day!

Preparation – preparation is key when it comes to your big day! You have your beautiful dress and gorgeous shoes sorted and now it’s time to think wedding beauty! Spend a couple of weeks looking at different make-up looks and inspiration (Pinterest is great for this - you can even create your own board of favourite looks).Choose three of your favourite looks and practice applying to see which compliments your features and skin tone best. Why not even take a few images of yourself outside in natural lighting (with no flash) to see how they photograph. By giving yourself plenty of time to play around with your favourite look, you’re eliminating the risk of any mistakes on the big day.  You’ll also learn the best techniques for ensuring this look is going to last all day.

The perfect base – it’s essential that you up your skincare regime at least 3-4 weeks before your wedding day to ensure your skin is looking its absolute best! Ensure that you remove all make-up before going to bed, cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise. This will not only ensure that your skin looks flawless and smooth leading up to the big day but it will mean that your make-up is going to last a lot longer. 

Make-up tools – invest in a set of high quality make-up brushes, this will give the best possible application for your make-up ensuring it stays put the whole day. For your AmazingConcealer® application we recommend using the AmazingConcealer® Brush (£9.99), as it’s the perfect complement to our AmazingConcealer® and ensures the perfect concealer application every time. Our Velvet Brush (£24.99) is also a must-have for your make-up bag and is the perfect tool for applying our Velvet Mineral® Powderset. Using this brush means flawless skin is just a brush stroke away!

Complexion perfection – we truly believe that the most important step to gorgeous make-up is all about the base and creating a flawless canvas. We have created The Power of Three collection of essentials including Anti-Ageing Face Primer, AmazingConcealer® and Velvet Powderset – everything you need for complexion perfection! Continue reading for how The Power of Three will create the most flawless look on your big day!

 The Power of Three

Primer is a must – this is a very important step as it’s going to be a long day, with lots of kisses on your cheek! Applying a good primer after you have moisturised and before you apply your foundation is going to ensure your make-up doesn’t move and stays on all day! It can also give your skin that flawless, photoshop finish. AmazingCosmetics® have two primers for you to choose from depending on your skin concerns. If you’re concerned over wrinkles around the brows, eyes and mouth, opt for Line Smoother & Primer with Neodermyl® (£26.99). The ‘needle-free’ collagen filler firms, hydrates and preps the skin for make-up whilst reducing wrinkle depth and fine lines. If you want an all over anti-ageing primer, we recommend our Anti-Ageing Face Primer (£25.99), the moisturising, oil-free primer that leaves your face perfectly prepped for make-up application.

 Line Smoother & Primer and Anti-Ageing Face PrimerAmazingConcealer® – our very own super hero of a beauty product should be an essential item in your make-up bag for your big day, as its high performing, water resistant technology will cover every skin imperfection it meets. So, you won’t need to worry if nerves and excitement mean you don’t get too much sleep the night before and wake up with lovely bags under your eyes, or if a dreaded spot appears (fingers crossed neither of these would happen), but just in case… AmazingConcealer® will be at the rescue. If BRIDES Beauty Columnist, Drew Barymore recommends it for your big day then we can’t be wrong!


Gorgeous eyes – of course you want gorgeous eyes that will withstand any happy wedding day tears.  The best way to ensure long lasting eye make-up is to apply a pin-dot of your AmazingConcealer® (one or two shades lighter than your skin tone) on your eyelids and under your eyes. The concealer will prime your eyelids ensuring your eye shadow stays put all day and having the concealer a slightly lighter shade will make the eye area appear wider and brighter. 

 Long lasting eyes with AmazingConcealer

Long lasting lips – people tend to miss out prepping their lips for make-up application, however because you’re going to be snapped throughout the day, you want to be certain that your lip colour stays put for as long as possible. A couple of weeks before your wedding day, make sure that you are regularly exfoliating and moisturising your lips with a good lip balm so that there is a soft, even base for application. On the big day apply a small amount of your AmazingConcealer® all over your lips before putting on your lipstick or gloss; this will hold the colour for a lot longer than usual. 

 

Flawless finish – when all your make-up is applied for the big day lightly dust over a mineral powder, this will set your make-up making it stay put all day, and will also take away any oils or grease so that you don’t look shiny in pictures. AmazingCosmetics® Velvet Powderset (£20.99) is the perfect finishing touch for a flawless complexion. For best results, we recommend applying with our Velvet Brush. Use with Anti-Ageing Face Primer and AmazingConcealer® to experience The Power of Three.

 

And there you have it – AmazingCosmetics® bridal tips for long lasting and beautifully natural make-up.

Don’t forget to get plenty of rest and lots of water running up to the big day, it will help to hydrate your skin giving you a gorgeous glow. But most importantly don’t forget to smile - it’s your day!

2015 Beauty Resolutions

2015-01-02 14:40:05

Are you still sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions? Apparently only 8% of us do, so you’re not alone! That said there are a few simply beauty resolutions that we firmly believe you should try and keep:

1. Vow to remove all make-up every night!

We’ve all been there - it’s late, you’re tired and all you want to do is crawl into bed - washing your face is the last thing you want to do. However, this is our number one for a reason!

Sleeping in your make-up is really bad for your skin… it can clog your pores leading to breakouts and add years onto your face (and nobody wants that!). What’s more, having a beautifully cleansed and moisturised face each morning will ensure that your newly applied make-up looks better and stays on for longer. It’s all about the base for complexion perfection!

2. Clean your make-up brushes every  2-3 weeks

This is probably one of those tasks that you just keep putting off – yes, we know you’re busy! But when you remember your dirty brushes contain make-up, oil, dirt, bacteria and dead skin, you may just want to find the time to get them clean again. Dirty brushes won’t apply your make-up to their best ability either, so regular cleaning will help ensure you’re always looking your best too.

There are many brush cleaners available to buy, or you can simply use household items such as baby shampoo, a bar of soap or even washing up liquid – add some warm water and voila! Your make-up brushes will look brand new.

Top tip: If you start to notice your brushes feeling a bit stiff over time and don’t want to splurge out on a new set, simply massage a tiny bit of hair conditioner into the bristles, rinse with warm water and leave them to dry flat. This will bring back that soft, luxurious feel that encouraged you to buy them in the first place!

3. Detox your make-up bag!

You’re not alone if you sometimes delve in to the depths of your make-up bag to find a lip gloss your aunty bought you for Christmas three years ago – but seriously, get rid!

Throw out all old and expired make-up. Using make-up that is past its prime is like asking for a breakout!

Give the make-up you’re keeping a wipe over with a baby wipe to keep everything looking sparkling brand new, because after all a clear make-up bag is a clear mind!

4. Try a ‘beauty dare’ once a month!

New Year, new you? We know a new year often starts with big plans to lead a healthier lifestyle - exercise more, eat better foods, go out less – the list goes on! But smaller changes are much simpler to stick to. Why not spice up your make-up regime and do something different and daring once a month?

Rock a new bold lip colour, or take the time to master the art of winged liner, there are so many different make-up trends which are fun to keep up with!

5. Remove chipped nail varnish

We know it can be hard to actually find the time to sit down to paint your nails and even harder to maintain the perfectly manicured look. But trust us, there’s nothing worse than a chipped manicure, so if you really can’t find 5 minutes to give them a quick touch up and tidy, then remove the varnish and go au naturel!

We hope our beauty resolutions have inspired you, and we also know that by sticking to even a couple of them, you’ll see the benefits!

Wishing you a beauty-filled and truly AMAZING 2015!
