THIS MONTH OUR BEAUTY EXPERT CARLY HOBBS GIVES US SOME ESSENTIAL TIPS…
Q: How do you get those perfect waves that last all day?
Everyone can enjoy those tousled waves that last all day. Wash your hair then mist damp hair with Bed Head Queen For A Day Thickening Spray, £7.45, Albeauty.com. Blow dry and then grab GHD Final Fix Hairspray, £3.95, Feelunique.com, and a curling wand. Section off your hair into chunks, then mist with hairspray, wind around the wand, hold for 5 seconds, drop it down carefully and mist with hairspray. Repeat until you’ve done every strand, then allow to cool. Once the heat dies down, shake out your waves and finish with one more layer of hairspray.
Q: When is the right time to apply concealer – before or after foundation?
After is always best, as if you add foundation over your concealer, then all your hard cover up work is rubbed off. Buff on your base as normal and you will see areas that need a little more attention – these typically tend to be under the eyes and around the nose. For blemishes, opt for concealer that is one tone lighter than your foundation and pat over your problem areas – I love Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer, £19.50, marksandspencer.com. For the under-eye area you need something peachier to knock out darkness. Try Benefit Oh La La Lift, £17.50, Lookfantastic.com.
