    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.

  • 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!

  • How To Care For Your Eyelashes

    Your eyelashes can be very delicate and need a lot of care, especially after wearing mascara and false eyelashes regularly. Treating your eyelashes to some TLC every now and then can visibly improve their strength, thickness and fullness.

    – Use Vaseline petroleum jelly to condition dry and brittle lashes (Tip, apply it with an old and clean mascara brush)
    – Avoid rubbing your eyelashes as this can lead to breaking and lash fall out
    – Limit how often you wear false eyelashes to give your eyelashes a break!
    – Use special supplements. If your eyelashes are in a particularly bad way, there are over the counter supplements you can try to help boost them. Visit your chemist for their opinion.
    – Always remove your makeup and use soft cotton pads soaked in eye makeup remover to gently dissolve the makeup and avoid pulling on your lashes

  • Essential Eyebrow Tools and Brushes

    makeup-brush-1768790_1920

    Keeping your eyebrows in check used to be quick work with a tweezer once a month and possibly a brow pencil if you’re feeling fancy. Since 2010, the eyebrow category has expanded massively and now there’s a product and tool for everything you can imagine. To help you work through the bad and the good, our experts have summarised their essential tools and brushes for keeping your brows in check:

    1. Tweezer. The classic tweezer is still very much so in demand for general maintenance and keeping eyebrow arches in shape. There’s many different shapes and sizes, but our favourite is the slanted tweezer which can easily grab eyebrow hairs for precise plucking.

    2. Spoolie/Spiral Brush. New to the makeup brush gang, the spoolie brush is a spiral shape brush and is ideal for combing through eyebrows to arrange stray hairs or for distributing makeup.

    3. Small Blender Brush. If you like using a highlighter to accentuate your eyebrow arch, a small blender brush is ideal for blending the product and ensuring a seamless finish.

    4. Hand Held Mirror.
    We love the mirrors with a magnified side so you can really see all your eyebrow hairs! This is great for precise plucking and makeup application.

    5. Cotton Buds. We’ve all been there when we’ve applied just too much makeup or accidentally got our 30 Day Brow Tint on our skin. Just sweep away with a cotton bud and voila, you eyebrows didn’t know a thing!

    For a natural and long-lasting colour all month, try the 30 Day Brow Tint (in Dark Brown and Black) for at-home tinting and gorgeous brows! Shop now at Boots for £8.25.

  • Our Many Eyebrow Problems…

    Did you know there’s a hashtag all about sharing your eyebrow problems? We’ve all been there when we got a little too friendly with our tweezers and ended up with no eyebrows or thick caterpillar eyebrows when we’re gone in too much with our powder. And now we’re sharing our eyebrow problems with you:

    – They’re overplucked and sparse.
    Down to the fact we’re trying to even them in shape (see point 2!) and now we have a pair of thin and sparse eyebrows for the next month.

    – They’re not matching.
    The phrase ‘eyebrows are sisters and not twins’ is a common and very true phrase. Don’t spend time trying to get your brows even, concentrate on making them looked groomed!

    – Not finding the right shade.
    Matching your eyebrow shade to your hair colour isn’t a good practice. Try using a mixture of shades until you find the right one for you.

    – They’re shapeless.
    Another common eyebrow problem, but one that’s easily fixed by finding your arch. Hold a makeup brush parallel to your nose, this is your starting point, then hold the brush parallel to the outer edge of your iris, this is your arch, and finally extend the brush diagonally from the nostril following the outside edge of the eye towards the brow, this is where your brow should end.

    – Applying too much makeup.
    The good thing with makeup is that you can just remove it if you’re not happy! Start very light handed and try to use small brush strokes to mimic the eyebrow hairs as naturally as possible.

    What’s your biggest brow problem?

    Whether you’re single or part of a couple, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to give yourself a pamper! Try our ideas for the ultimate relaxation on the day of romance.

    1. Have fun with face masks. Good for your skin and it doesn’t have to cost the earth! You can make your own face masks at home from oats, yogurt, honey and eggs or try a pre-packed face mask. Extra points for face mask selfies!

    2. Watch your favourite romantic film. It could be The Notebook, When Harry Met Sally or Love Actually, make sure you stick to the theme of love and have a packet of tissues ready for the sad scenes.

    3. Relax in the bath. Our favourite bath time friends are bath bombs, body scrubs and plenty of bubbles! Why not add a few candles for added atmosphere?

    4. Try a new coat of paint. Prepping your nails with a new polish colour is a great way to pamper yourself. Start with shaping the nail and don’t forget to apply a base coat!

    5. Add gorgeous lashes and brows. The perfect way to pamper yourself is giving yourself a DIY beauty treatment. Try tinting your eyebrows with the Colorsport 30 Day Brow Tint and not forgetting your eyelashes, our 30 Day Mascara is up for the job!

  • A Guide To Eyebrows

    guide-to-brows

    The saying “Eyebrows are sisters and not twins” is a true statement, as well as not everyone’s eyebrow routine (by this we’re talking about shaping, makeup etc.!) isn’t the same. We’ve created a guide to eyebrows to help you manoeuvre the busy world of #BrowsOnFleek.

    1. Shape. If you’re not sure what eyebrow shape you really are, refer to our blog post and match with your perfect shape by your face shape. Keeping your eyebrows in consistent shape is important for minimising daily maintenance.

    2. Fill. For those sparse areas at the beginning of your eyebrows and bald patches, use a brow power or pencil to fill in the area. Choose the right shade for you, avoiding anything too red and opting for a taupe or neutral shade instead.

    3. Maintain. Keep up your eyebrow maintenance with the Shape and Fill steps, but also with a monthly eyebrow tint. This preps your eyebrows for the month, leaving them looking fuller, darker and defined for up to 30 days! We love using the 30 Day Brow Tint in Dark Brown or Black for the job.

    The Colorsport 30 Day Brow Tint is available from Boots in Dark Brown or Black at £8.25.

  • Colorsport Tips For Party Makeup

    dreamstime_xl_35449825

    With Christmas parties in the diary and New Year’s Eve on the horizon, it’s time to perfect your party makeup. And we mean glitter, red lips and smoky eyes – the whole look!

    It’s all in the prep. Without a good base to start with, your makeup won’t sit right. Use a primer for your skin and tint your eyebrows with the Colorsport 30 Day Brow Tint and eyelashes with the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara. These two products add a natural colour, definition and shape – meaning your makeup will look gorgeous as you dance the night away.

    Choose the right tools. When applying eyeshadow, it’s important to have the correct brushes to blend and apply the products. It’s a make-or-break step!

    Exfoliate your lips before applying lipstick. Make your own lip scrub with brown sugar and honey and gently rub this against your lips to remove any dead skin cells and leave a smooth base for your lipstick.

    Keep steady with your eyeliner. For applying precise eyeliner, rest your elbow on a table and guide your hand along your lash line for a straight line!

    Finish with a fixing spray. Stop your makeup moving in its tracks with a fixing spray, just spritz it across your face before you leave for no-budge makeup!
