    rose-21191_1280

    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!

    How will you be pampering yourself this Valentine’s Day?

  • 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

    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!

  • The History Of Eyebrows

    audrey-hepburn-63115_1920 (1)

     

    Eyebrows have evolved drastically since they’ve become a fashion trend. From full and dark eyebrows during the ancient Egyptians, to the 1920’s pencil thin brows and finally the 2010’s bold and groomed brow of today. Here at Colorsport HQ, we love brows and recommend using our specialist 30 Day Brow Tint kit, which tints your brows and leaves a waterproof colour and defined shaped for up to 30 days! Let’s take you through the history of the eyebrow:

    Ancient Egyptians and Greek

    Egyptian women and men believed that darkened, arched and eloganted brows brought them supernatural powers. Whilst the Ancient Greeks preferred that natural look – and uni-brows were recognised as a beautiful trait!

     

    Middle Ages and Elizabethan

    Many medieval women wanted to draw attention to their foreheads, so heavily plucked their brows (we’ve all been there!) However during the Elizabetha era, many women dyed their eyebrows in reddish tones to match Queen Elizabeth.

     

    1920’s to 1980’s brows

    This time scale brought an array of brows, varying from the thin variety in the 1920’s to celebrate and liberate women to the gorgeously full and shaped brows of Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn (pictured.)

     

    1990’s to today’s brows

    The 1990’s saw the ‘less is more’ approach to brows, with the overplucked brow style sported by many celebrities and causing a tweezing trend. Thankfully, we have the brow queen Cara Delevinge to thank for full and bold brows, with a new brow market sweeping across the nation!

  • Top Tips For Brows On Point

    Tips Eyebrows On Point

    We’re always on the hunt to create perfect on point eyebrows. They may not be twins or even sisters, but eyebrows are very important to your facial expressions and shaping your face. Because of this, we’ve created a 5 step tips process for keeping your brows on point.

    1. Shape Professional shaping with waxing or threading is ideal for long-term shape or tweezing brows yourself work as a cost and time-effective solution. Take a pair of tweezers every week and gently pull out stray hairs and follow our guide for finding your eyebrow shape.

    3. Fill Using makeup to fill your brows can make or break them. A powder gives the most natural look (our favourite too!), a pencil works well for a quick shape and gels are ideal for fixing hairs in place and adding colour. If you’re using a powder, take an angled brush, apply powder and mimic eyebrow hairs in small strokes.

    4. Highlight Now you’ve done the shape and colour, it’s time to show off your brows! Choose a light pink-pearl highlighter along your brow bone and above it to accentuate the eyebrow arch and shape.

    5. Maintain Make sure your continue to pluck away stray hairs and tint your brows hairs once every 3-4 weeks to maintain it’s colour and shape.

  • Colorsport 30 Day Mascara Formula Change

    Colorsport 30 Day Mascara Blog Post

    From September 2013, the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara reformulated to a hydrogen peroxide free formula. This was due to European legislation, stating that lash tinting products containing hydrogen peroxide are “for professional use only” if they are intended to be applied on the eyelashes. The European legislation does not allow products to be sold at retail with hydrogen peroxide, which are intended to be applied on the eyelashes, even if the level of peroxide is very low.

    As a result, we had to reformulate the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara which is now quicker and hydrogen peroxide free. The new formula uses a new process and ingredient, so please read the instructions very carefully and watch our tutorial here, which both explain the new application method. You will find an instruction leaflet in every 30 Day Mascara pack which explains the new process so please follow carefully. You can purchase the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara from Boots stores in both Black and Dark Brown for £8.25.

    We appreciate all your comments and have taken into account the feedback of our customers in regards to the new formula change. We are pleased to re-introduce the previous formula, containing hydrogen peroxide, back into the market but it can only be used for eyebrows. The 30 Day Brow Tint is sold at Boots stores in both Black and Dark Brown for £8.25.

    If you wish to receive further information about our formula change, please fill out the contact us form on our homepage.
