  • Tips and Hacks For Your Eyebrows

    Brows arrive in all sorts of shapes and sizes, coining the term ‘sisters, not twins’ but keeping them in check easily is a challenge. We’ve brought together the best (and 100% proven) tips and hacks for your brows to ensure yours are looking great always.

    Spray an old toothbrush with hairspray and brush through your brows to keep them in place!
    Choose good light when plucking your brows. This will ensure you reach all of those lighter hairs too.
    Opt for makeup one shade darker than your hair colour, as no one really wants matching hair and brows!
    – Press a warm washcloth to your eyebrow area to relax the follicles before waxing or tweezing
    Try tinting with the 30 Day Brow Tint for low-cost maintenance, plus the colour lasts for up to 30 days too!
    Highlight your brows directly along your brow bone for a defined shape
    Try using a stencil if you struggle to find your brow shape!

  • The Perfect Occasions To Tint Your Lashes And Brows

    Tinting your lashes and brows has many benefits, including making them look fuller and darker with a instant lift! We love using the 30 Day Mascara Eyelash Tint and 30 Day Brow Tint for an easy at-home solution to salon treatments, plus each kit includes multiple applications for less than £1 each.

    See if you match any of the tint must-have situations below and get yourself down to Boots to buy your 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint.

    So when will I need to tint my lashes and brows?

    1. For your wedding and honeymoon
    This is the perfect example of giving yourself an at-home pamper before your big day. The 30 Day Mascara provides a great priming base for your mascara, making lashes look fuller and darker from root to tip. Did we mention the 30 Day Brow Tint is completely waterproof too? No need to worry about your eyebrows looking good on your honeymoon as the 30 Day Brow Tint has already done that for you.

    2. For your holiday
    Forget wearing makeup every day on the beach and enjoy your holiday! The 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint are water and sweat proof and won’t transfer throughout the day. The tint will gradually fade over 30 days as your hairs naturally fall out and are replaced by new ones.

    3. For a special event
    Make your lashes and brows stand out and prime them for your makeup beforehand. Both kits are the perfect base for your mascara and brow makeup, enhancing the natural looks you already have and giving them a shape and colour boost!

    4. For no makeup days
    Skip the mascara and brow makeup on those days when you really don’t want to wear makeup, knowing that your lashes and brows already look fab!

    5. For when you need the volume and shape
    The Colorsport 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint boost your natural lashes and brows and last for up to 30 days, with no smudging. Reach lashes from root to tip, adding volume and colour instantly and create those #BrowsOnFleek!

    Try the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint in Dark Brown and Black for £8.25 each from Boots.

  • How To Make Lashes Look Longer And Brows Look Thicker

    Whilst our dreams and wishes may be to own a pet unicorn and become Queen one day, we can help you achieve longer lashes and thicker brows with a few simple tips:

    For Longer Lashes:
    – Angle the wand of your mascara vertically and brush against your lashes to add length!
    – Curl your eyelashes before applying mascara and gently warm your curls with a hairdryer beforehand, this helps the curl to hold for longer
    – Use the 30 Day Mascara Eyelash Tint each month for a waterproof colour and longer lashes, as the colour reaches from root to tip
    – Coat your lashes between mascara applications with baby powder on an eyeshadow brush. By doing this your lashes will have added volume and shape!
    – Wipe off excess mascara clumps on a tissue before applying because clumps will make your lashes look short and stumpy

    For Thicker Brows:
    – Use a wet and clean toothbrush to exfoliate eyebrows and stimulate growth
    – Begin with a brow pencil to outline the shape then finish with a powder to add a natural look
    – Try using a concealer around the outer edges of your brows to enhance their shape
    – Tint your brows each month with the 30 Day Brow Tint. This helps to add colour to fair hairs and shape to sparse brows!
    – Avoid plucking too much hair from above your brow, this makes them look thinner and unshapely

  • Tips For Using Our Lash And Brow Tint Kits

    12thSeptember_COL

    Tinting your own eyelashes and eyebrows at home can seem daunting at first, but our 30 Day kits are so easy to use with instant results – plus saving you a trip to the salon every month! Try our tips and tricks for using our lash and brow tint kits:

    – Use a timer
    It’s very important to keep track of your timings when using a tint kit on your lashes and brows, this determines whether the kit is successful or not. Use the timer on your phone or a kitchen timer to keep an eye on your minutes.

    – Follow the instructions and watch the tutorials

    In just a few simple steps your lashes and brows will be transformed and instantly shaped and defined, but always after you’ve read the instructions! Too much of one solution could mean the tint is ineffective and the wrong application could end up with the tint not applying at all! Check out our tutorial videos here.

    – Leave the tint on for a darker result

    Everybody takes to our tint kits differently, some people find a few minutes is perfect whilst others need extra time for a darker result. When using our 30 Day brow Tint, leave the tint on your eyebrows for a maximum of 5 minutes and with our 30 Day Mascara, leave Solution 1 on for an extra few minutes for a darker result!

    – Always apply a patch test
    With any tinting kit, it’s so very important to carry out a skin sensitivity patch test before starting the process. We posted about the importance of a patch test on our blog and how to carry out the test yourself to rule out any allergic reactions.

  • Why Your Eyebrows and Eyelashes Are Important

    night-portrait-canon-flash-74472

    They’re always there and go through a monthly cycle when old hairs are replaced by new ones, but do we really know how important your eyebrows and eyelashes actually are? Well they’re there for a few practical reasons:

    – They protect
    Both of your eyebrows and eyelashes are there to protect against dust, dirt and sweat from going into your eyes.

    – They’re part of your expression
    And they make you recognisable too! Studies have proven that without your eyebrows, we are less likely to recognise each other by photos alone.

    – They shade you from the sun
    Your eyelashes are great for shading your eyes from direct sunlight and act as an umbrella in the rain too!

    – They balance your facial features
    We’ve seen those scary celebrity photos with no eyebrows right? Your facial features such as your eyes, nose and jaw contours become unbalanced without your eyebrows.

    – They can sense danger

    Oncoming particles and insects are sensed by your eyelashes, which then causes you to close your eyes and protect them from any danger.

    – They accentuate your eyes
    Your eyelashes add shape and elongate your eyelashes, as well as your eyebrows framing your face and eyes.

  • 10 Things To Do Whilst Tinting Your Brows Part Three

    9thJuneCOL

    We all like to multitask our to-do list, because the quicker the chores are done then more time we have to relax and do the things we actually want to do! Tinting your brows could mean a trip to the salon and spending over £15 for a fresh set of brows, only to go back a few weeks later for a top up. You can save time and money with the Colorsport 30 Day Brow Tint, which you can use in the comfort of your own home and tick off that to-do list. See what you can get up to in just 10 minutes whilst tinting your brows:

    1. Read the next chapter of your new book.
    2. Send a letter or postcard to a friend or relative – like traditional snail mail!
    3. Re-organise your kitchen cupboards, and throw away anything out of date.
    4. Take an online quiz. Want to find out which Harry Potter character you are? We love Buzzfeed for fun quizzes.
    5. Plan your weekend ahead.
    6. Learn something new!

  • Summer 2017 Beauty Tips

    Summer Beauty Tips

    With holidays and trips away in the diary, it’s time to start thinking about your summer beauty routine. As the weather changes, your skincare and beauty products should change to reflect the new season and we’ve asked our experts for their best tips:

    1. Only take the essentials on holiday with you.
    It’s tempting to cram everything into your travel beauty bag, but you have to remember that you’re only away for a certain time and how much are you likely to use? Make a list of your essentials and decant them into smaller pots and sizes to make them more travel friendly!

    2. Always apply SPF.
    Even in the cloudy British weather the sun’s harmful UV rays can still penetrate your skin. So it’s recommended to wear a minimum coverage across your face to prevent ageing and apply to the rest of your body as and when appropriate.

    3. Tint your lashes and brows.
    We hate reapplying our makeup throughout the day and having a product which is waterproof, doesn’t smudge or disappear throughout the day gets the thumbs up from us! Try our 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint kits for your own at-home lash and brow tinting at a fraction of the salon price.

    4. Treat your hands and feet too!
    Feet have been stuck in boots all winter and our hands have bared the brunt of the colder weather, so it’s time to give them a make over! Treat your feet and hands to a soak and scrub, followed by a deep moisturiser and nail polish shade of your choice.

    5. Buff your body.
    For flawlessly tanned and smoother skin, using a body scrub or buffer is the quickest way to reach gorgeously smooth skin. Try using a scrub once or twice a week to help renew dead skin cells and leave it looking refreshed and brighter!

    6. Protect your hair too.
    Sometimes we forget that our hair and scalp needs just as much protection as the rest of our body does! Pack a hat in your hand luggage and run your hands through your hair with any left over suncream to protect the scalp.

  • How To Find Your Eyebrow Arch

    How To Find Your Arch

    The saying “eyebrows are sisters, not twins” runs true when it comes to finding your eyebrow arch. Not every one eyebrow is the same and neither is your eyebrow arch! By finding where your eyebrow begins, ends and arches, you can create a defined eyebrow that adds shape and creates the right symmetry with your face overall.

    How To Find Your Eyebrow Arch:

    – Find where your eyebrow starts by holding an eyebrow pencil parallel to the side of your nose and where the pencil meets your eyebrow, mark this as the start.

    – Find where your eyebrow ends by angling an eyebrow pencil from your nostril towards the point of where your eye ends and where the pencil meets your eyebrow, mark this as the end.

    – Find where your eyebrow arch is by holding an eyebrow pencil vertically and line it up with the far side of your iris and where the pencil meets your eyebrow, mark this as your arch. Arches should never end with a point but naturally curve.

    Have you found your eyebrow arch?

  • Eye Makeup Trends To Try This S/S17

    Eye Makeup Trends

    Each season there’s a new makeup trend to try, whether it’s highlighting and contouring or graphic eyeliner and ombre lips. On the catwalks this season we’ve seen some dramatic looks and also au naturel styles, and here’s our top eye makeup trends to try this S/S17:

    – Eye gloss. Forgo the matte style and give glossy lids a try! Apply your normal eyeshadow on your eyelids then use a clear gloss and apply on top for a wet lid look.

    – Metallic eyes. Add a wash of metallic shimmer with a flat brush to press onto your eyelids. Then use a lighter shade in the middle of your eyelid to help draw attention to the center of your eyes.

    – Au naturel. We personally love this trend, leave out the mascara and use our 30 Day Mascara to add a natural colour tint to your eyelashes. Or if you can’t go without mascara, we love using a dark brown!

    – Neon eyeliner. Add a colour pop to your eyes with a graphic eyeliner flick in a neon or bright colour. Just make sure you have a steady hand to draw your line!

    What is your favourite eye makeup trend?
