How to Do Your Makeup Like Gigi Hadid!

Gigi Hadid is one of the biggest names out there right now. It isn’t hard to see why either; she’s an amazing supermodel, dating Zayn Malik, and she always looks flawless! The thing I’ve noticed about Gigi is that she never looks too done up, but she always looks gorgeous. That’s why I thought I’d write out some makeup tips that should help you to emulate her look. Enjoy!

Illuminating Primer
Gigi always looks like she’s glowing, at least a little bit. This is down to her illuminating primer! She definitely uses something shimmery underneath her foundation to brighten her skin and make her glow. Primer holds the makeup on for longer too, so if you don’t currently use it, then you should!

Use a Dewy Foundation
A dewy foundation will cover your imperfections without making you look like you’ve caked anything on. You’ll still have a slight sheen, and some of them will allow your natural skin to show through a little. If you need more coverage, the best thing you can do is apply lightly all over and then add a little more to blemish prone areas with a sponge. Make sure you blend it perfectly too!

Cat Eye or Soft Browns
When it comes to your eyes, you should either go for a classic cat eye or soft brown shadows. Gigi never goes OTT with her eye makeup. You could even go for some gold colours for a special occasion. Dot a shimmery shadow in the inner corner of your eyes to open them up! You can find lots of palettes that contain the colours you need, like a Z palette. Using a Z palette isn’t hard!

Peach blusher
Gigi always wears peachy blusher, as her complexion is quite warm. If yours is different, you might want to go for a slightly different blusher. She only wears a hint, so make sure you don’t get brush happy!

A Subtle Golden Glow
If you’re going for more of a bronzed look, then use bronzer to create a subtle golden glow. You can also use a nice golden highlighter on the tops of your cheeks, down your nose and in the arch of your brow.

Nude Liner and Gloss
Gigi doesn’t usually wear a dark lip. Her lips always look smooth and kissable, but subtle. For this, I’d use a nude liner to outline after applying a gloss. Then I’d use my finger to smudge the line slightly, so it doesn’t look too harsh. You can even exfoliate them beforehand, so they’re nice and smooth.

Lightly Fill in Brows and Tame
Gigi has naturally full brows, so they don’t ever look drawn on. This means if you fill your brows in, you need to make it subtle. You should also use a brow mascara to tame the brows afterwards, directing the hair upwards.

Hopefully, these tips help you to create a healthy glow and a look you can wear day or night. Gigi’s look is so versatile! Leave your thoughts on her look below. Bye for now!

Amazing Ways To Improve Your Body

Our bodies are amazing. They can do so much. And we use our bodies in so many wonderful ways. But sometimes we wish they were different. Perhaps you want to be stronger, slimmer, curvier, or faster. There are many ways to improve our bodies. It all depends on what you want them to do for you.

To make your body work harder for you, it’s important to feed it right. Diets should be rich in nutritious foods like vegetables, nuts, pulses and beans. These can provide the essential vitamins and minerals the body needs. Meat and dairy also have the place in our diets. And whole grains and seeds offer energy and fiber too.

Each food group provides something the body needs to work harder for longer. But the diet isn’t enough. A program of exercise designed to improve your fitness, stamina and strength is key to making your body do more. Repetitive movements can be very helpful for building strength and suppleness. It also helps the brain connect the motions to the work you want your body to do.

If you want to have stronger arms, you might try push ups, pull ups, curls and weight training. This will work the muscles, building strength. You may do several repetitions of each exercise and then rest for a few days. The resting period is essential for the muscle to repair and heal. This is how the muscle can gain strength.

Sleep is also essential to our bodies as it provides the rest needed for cells to regenerate and injuries to heal. It helps keep our metabolism in check and aids digestion. Most importantly, it helps the brain remember the movements we have done. We actively learn while we sleep.

If you’re looking to sculpt your body into a more refined shape, then a mixture of slimming and muscle work may be necessary. Celebrity bodies are much adored, like J-Lo, Kim Kardashian, and Beyonce. You can see more details on how they got their bodies into shape online. Cardiovascular or aerobic exercise is usually the best way to burn off fat.

This means more walking, jogging, and cross training need to go into the mix of your exercise program. Anything that raises your heart rate and works up a sweat is usually good! Stretching and flexibility in the limbs are also important for that toned look. Light weights can help boost the effect too.

Some celebrities swear by special diets to help them keep the fat off their body. There are two different kinds of fat. The good fats we need to stay healthy. The bad fats are the ones found in all those treats we know we should avoid! Chocolate, candies, cakes, and processed meats tend to be the worst offenders. Each of our bodies is unique, though. Balancing what we eat and what we do is best. We all need different things.

You can improve your body to be faster and stronger. Or you can improve how the body looks. We’re all born with a unique physique that will need the right diet and exercise to perform at its best. Take care of yours.

4 Things You Must Do To Make Wedding Planning Less Stressful

You’ve just got engaged, congratulations! Once you’ve told all of your nearest and dearest and celebrated the occasion, you’ll probably start to wonder about your wedding. Your wedding will be one of the most important events in your life. So when it comes to planning it, it’s crucial that you get it right. After all, you only get one wedding.

While wedding planning can be incredibly exciting, it can also be extremely stressful. With so much that needs organising, it can be hard to know where to start. To make the process a little easier and less stressful, I thought that I would share four things that you have to do. (Take note of this advice, and you can make sure that planning your wedding is as enjoyable as possible.)

  1. First things first, buy a wedding planner

    I don’t mean hire a wedding planner – these are extremely expensive, I mean invest in a wedding planning book. The key to wedding planning success is having a good wedding planner to rely on. These little books really are amazing, no bride should be without one. 

    All the best designs come with pages for writing notes on, month by month checklists, and a simple guide to wedding planning. Aim to pick a book that offers you all the structure that you need to ensure that your wedding goes perfectly to plan.

  1. Use wedding planning websites 

    Take it from me, when you’re planning a wedding, wedding planning websites are a godsend. All the best ones, like The Knot and WeddingBee, have lots of fantastic tips articles. From advice for choosing invitations to guides to picking the perfect dress, these wedding sites are fantastic.It’s one thing knowing what needs to be done when, it’s completely another knowing how to go about it. Thanks to your wedding planning book you might know when you need to send out save-the-dates, but you might not know how to choose the ideal design. That’s where wedding planning websites, like The Wedding Planner, come in handy.

  1. Don’t go down the DIY route

    DIY weddings can be absolutely beautiful. But if you want planning your wedding to be as free of stress as possible, a DIY wedding isn’t for you. If you opt to make everything yourself, from your food to your invitations, you’ll be putting yourself under a whole lot of stress.While it might save you money, if you want a wedding that’s free of stress, going down the DIY route is not a good idea. For example, while you could make your own invitations, this would be time-consuming and fiddly. However, you could buy some of these beautiful modern wedding invitations by Paper Themes, and save yourself time and stress.

     

  1. Pick your venue before anything else 

    Many couples make the mistake of setting a date before choosing a venue and make things difficult for themselves. It’s much easier and less stressful to select a place before setting a date. So that you don’t have to worry about if it’s available on your chosen date. This will reduce some of the stress that comes with planning your wedding, as finding the perfect venue is one of the most difficult parts.

Want to make your wedding planning less stressful? Take note of the tips above, and you can do.

4 Accessories Every Girl Needs

Recently, I wrote a post about my favourite accessories, which got me thinking about all the essentials. We might all have different likes and dislikes when it comes to our accessories, but there are some basic items that we all need.

So today, I thought that I would share my guide to four accessories that every girl should have. (These aren’t just things that I personally love, they are items that you really do need.)

  1. Tailored jacket
    You might have a cute day jacket, but for evenings out, it probably isn’t suitable. As well as your basic coat, you should also have a smart, tailored jacket that you can throw on before heading out for dinner or a night on the town. Something chic and elegant, and suitable for creating various looks.

    Black is perfect for a smart jacket, as it makes it easy to team with almost any look. However, if you would prefer a lighter style, you could always opt for a design in a nude tone, such as camel or cream. It’s best to opt for a design that’s tailored at the waist so that it doesn’t swallow your shape.

  1. Neutral clutch
    It’s all well and good having lots of glamorous clutches in your wardrobe, but you need one simple design. That way, you know that whatever you are wearing, and whatever the occasion, you have a suitable bag.

    For a clutch that can be teamed with any outfit, opt for a design in black, beige, or cream. That way, you know that whatever outfit you opt for, you have a suitable clutch. For a fantastic range of clutches, have a browse online, and see what you can find. High street stores, like New Look and Topshop, often have some beautiful clutch designs.

  1. Stylish jewellery
    Diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, which is why every gal needs a selection of jewellery. It’s all well and good having a few pieces that you love, but you need a range of jewellery. So that whatever you are wearing, you have the perfect necklace or bracelet to add a little something to your look. The right necklace can take a boring outfit and transform it into something amazing.

    Aim to build up a selection of statement pieces, as well as a variety of simpler items. Don’t just invest in necklaces, bracelets and earrings, if you have other piercings, such as a nose piercing, get jewellery for that as well. For a range of interesting designs, have a browse online, and check out the Piercing Mania website.

  1. Beautiful watch
    A watch is one of the simplest ways to dress up any outfit, from your work wear to your evening wear. Choose the right watch – something stylish and sophisticated, and it can take your look from dull and boring to chic and stylish.

    Watches might be seen as being functional items, but they are just as much an accessory as a timepiece. Pick a design that will work well with almost any outfit choice, as well as your personal style, and you’ll have the ultimate accessory.

These four accessories are things that every girl should have in her wardrobe, regardless of your sense of style.

Considering Botox? Here’s What You Need To Know

botoxPicture from mrg.bz/SjUbIJ

If you want smooth, wrinkle-free skin, there is an obvious solution. Botox is a quick procedure that everyone can have. There are now hundreds of places where you can get this form of treatment. Remember, getting Botox is a huge decision, and so you need to think about it before you get it. You need to make sure that you are 100% sure before you go for the treatment. That is why it’s so important that you educate yourself about it. Here is everything you need to know.

It takes just a few minutes
Most people are under the impression that cosmetic surgery takes hours and hours. Well, that is true if you are having an operation. Botox is not an operation – it is a simple injection. In reality, it takes just a couple of minutes to perform this procedure. In fact, many people have it done in their lunch break. Experts from the court house clinics say that this is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get rid of wrinkles. There is no healing time, which means that you can get on with the rest of your day right after it.

It is a solution to wrinkles
Wrinkles can be a nightmare. When you notice that you have fine lines forming on your face, it can be horrible. Of course, we all want to look as young as possible for as long as possible. The best thing you can do for yourself is to treat the issue. The longer you leave it, the deeper the wrinkles will get. Over time, you could find that the lines look worse than ever. If you do want to get rid of the lines, it just takes one round of Botox to do so. Simple!

Botox is a brand name
Many people think that Botox is just the name for this type of treatment. It may surprise you to learn that the word Botox is a brand name. In fact, there are many different formulas clinics use for this treatment. There is no doubt that Botox is the best one! When you book an appointment, make sure that your doctor verifies the solution they will use. You should ask for brand name Botox rather than any other solution. That way, you can be sure that it will do the trick right away.

You can fight the signs of ageing
If you feel that you look older than your years, it is time to take action. The truth of the matter is that you can fight the signs of ageing. The sooner you get Botox and sort out the problem, the better you will feel. Of course, there are other ways to look younger than you do now. A healthy diet and workout regime will do you a massive favour too. When you change the way you live, you will find that you look as youthful as you ever did!

Results aren’t immediate and aren’t permanent
If your planning on having a little Botox before a big event, it’s important to remember the results of Botox aren’t immediate. You aren’t going to walk out of your doctors with a whole new face. In truth the first day or two you won’t even notice any difference. But give it a couple days and you’ll notice it kicking in and slowly develop over a two or so weeks. So plan in advance to ensure you look perfect for your big event. It’s also important to note, the time Botox last varies between clients, but generally you should expect to see the effects for about three and a half to four months.

I hope that this advice helps you along the way. This decision is not one you should rush. Take your time and decide what’s right for you.

Keep Hydrated
Okay, it is not the miracle cream that you are looking for, but water is about the best defense against ageing that you are likely to find. Also, miracle creams do not exist! Water contains hydrogen and oxygen, both of which combine to keep your skin looking lively and fresh. The body needs water because the muscles and the vital organs use water to function. The effect is that the skin is much healthier and elastic thanks to the constant supply of H2O. Continue reading “Fight The Signs Of Ageing With These Tricks”

My Guide To Traveling With Children

Gone are the days when holidays meant topping up your tan and drinking the all-inclusive bar dry. Once you’ve had kids, your life changes dramatically. No longer do you only have yourself to think about; now you’ve got a tiny version of yourself to take care for. You’re responsible for all aspects of their upbringing, and that includes taking them away with you.

For most of us, travel is ingrained in our culture. We spend the rest of the year working hard and accruing leave so that we can afford a week or two of sunshine. Whether you have kids or not, a break is still important to prevent yourself burning out. When the whole family is on retreat, though, their safety becomes your utmost priority. Here’s how to make sure your little ones stay safe and happy abroad.
