Base Coat Tip

Beauty Tip Tuesday

Always use a base coat before applying nail polish to protect your nails and also prevent staining.  Seche crystal clear base coat is the best way to prepare your nails for polish as it glides on smoothly for a fresh, sheer and clean look.

Face Steamer Tip

Beauty Tip Tuesday

Steaming your face for 10 minutes once a week will open your pores and release impurities, to help you achieve a healthy complexion. If you don’t own a face steamer you can sit over a bowl of hot water, covering your head with a towel.

Cuticle Oil Tip

Apply a cuticle oil to your nails and cuticle area twice a day to keep them nourished and healthy.  CND Solar Oil is an award winning nail product and has a lovely fragrance

Foundation Brush Tip

Beauty Tip Tuesday

Foundation is best applied with a brush as a sponge will absorb too much product. An angled brush aligns effortlessly to the contours of your face – under the eyes, around the nose, and in the creases giving a smooth, even and flawless finish.
