We all want to look like fashion divas without all the hassle and expense of regular saloon and spa trips. The sad truth is you can’t, natural beauty is awesome but really, who is born with bright red lips, flawless skin, bright shiny eyes, luscious dark lashes and blushing cheeks? Add smoke, alcohol, fatigue, sleepless nights, stress, sickness and basically life and natural beauty fades into oblivion.

What about us lesser (only in the beauty department) mortals?
Enter the world of makeup, and fashion, yes the two are inseparable. We can airbrush those blemishes, conceal those dark circles and tint our lips any shade we want. Then to top it off we can drape our selves with the most amazing fabrics, flattering silhouettes, and look like a million dollars. I love being a woman!
Here is a few common sense tips….
1.Exfoliate your lips, nothing breaks down a look more than flaky lips. Use your toothbrush to gently scrub away any dead cells. Do it after you brush your teeth in the morning everyday.
2.Ever so often slough off dead cells by scrubbing your face gently with a mixture of honey and baking soda. You will notice the difference within a week.
3.Office wear tends to be usually pastel colours and quite dull. Liven up with bright makeup and a dark shade of lipstick. Stay away from party eyeshadows during office hours but feel free to indulge at happy hour.
4.Complement a brightly coloured outfit with subtle makeup and lip-gloss. Go for the natural look, else you might end up looking like a bird of paradise, too colourful.
5.Smokey eyes looks best with a subtle shade of lipstick, dull beige is what we think rocks. It really makes the eyes pop without looking too much like Dracula’s bride.
