I love this time of year for so many reasons. The sun is shining, the days are getting longer, the flowers are in bloom, lockdown is coming to an end and we can start getting ourselves spring/summer-ready.
In this blog, I’m going to share with you some of my new favourite finds, including the best cordless hair removal device I personally have ever used from Finishing Touch, new make-up from Lord & Berry, which is a fabulous Italian make-up brand and my bright nails from Nails Inc.
After months of winter hibernation, it’s this time of year I often start to dig out the self-tan and try to warm up my skin tone from its pale bluey-white Celtic hue and along with this, I look at getting my legs and nails skirt and shirt ready. This year is a bit different, however, in terms of getting to salons to get everything done. We need to take measures into our own hands and find ways to make these jobs look great on our own!
I was delighted to be asked to trial the new Today’s Special Value for Tuesday 30th March, the Finishing Touch Flawless Legs USB Rechargeable Hair Remover (look out for item number 402429).
In my opinion, this is an exceptional hair removal device and here’s why I think that:
I found it completely pain-free, unlike my old epilator, where I felt the hairs being pulled out. It glides effortlessly over your body and has four wonderful 18 carat gold-plated floating heads that are designed to follow every contour and every curve, to leave a flawless finish with no hassle or water needed. Even small, delicate areas, like around the ankles and knees, end up smooth and perfect with a silky soft touch. Plus, the built in LED lights make it easier to see and remove every last tiny hair and bit of stubble.
You get everything you need in the kit, including the the charger, brush and pouch to keep it in. It really could not be easier and the price is incredible. Especially if you consider how much it can cost to get your legs waxed, plus the ease of being able to keep your legs and even bikini line nice and smooth whenever you want.
So that’s your legs taken care of, next up, new make-up.
I have recently been using Lord & Berry make-up and love it! This brand originates from Milan and is firmly established backstage at Milan and London Fashion weeks. So what’s so great about this make-up? It’s a brand that the make-up industries professional make-up artists use, so you already know it has great credentials. It offers an outstanding selection of professional-quality shadows, liners, mascaras and brow products. It uses high-grade ingredients and the formulas offer long-lasting, blendable and smudge-resistant results. Lord & Berry also prides itself in really long-lasting and highly-pigmented lipsticks and lip pencils. I love how smooth and creamy they feel and they last for hours.
I will have a whole hour of Lord & Berry make-up with celebrity make-up artist Lyndsey Harrison on Wednesday 31st March at 3pm on QVC. I’m really looking forward to working with Lyndsey and learning more tips and tricks. Please tune in if you can on Freeview 16 or watch online.
Finally, but certainly not lastly, the nails. For me, doing my nails always makes me feel better about the way I look and adds a finishing touch to my outfit. From springtime onwards, I love to bring out the big, bright colours and unashamedly use colours that clash and pop and add a flash of my personality to my look. So if you like bright neons, then check these out the Naked in Neon collection from Nails Inc.
You get five nail varnishes: a creamy orange, a cool white grey, a bold yellow, a fluoro pink plus Retinol 45 Second Top Coat with Retinol. They are an instant mood lifter and perfect for S/S 2021.
If, however, you prefer a bit more of a classic look, which I also love, then I also highly recommend the OPI five-piece Hollywood Infinite Shine Collection. Both sets are under £40, plus you get your 60 Day Money-Back Guarantee.
