SKINCARE SECRETS
Want to improve your skin appearance?

Having the right beauty products is one thing but it's important to apply them in the right order to get optimal results.

The first step is pretty straightforward: Remove all traces of makeup and grime from the day using a cleanser.

After cleansing, swipe on a toner. Toner clears any residual dirt as well as helping to reduce the size of your pores whilst leaving the skin clean and fresh.

Next up, serums. A step not to be missed. Serums are more readily absorbed than moisturisers, delivering concentrated active ingredients where they are needed to help with a variety of skin concerns (think dryness, reduction in spots and blemishes, wrinkles).

Now is the time to apply eye cream. The active ingredients in eye creams are designed to be restorative and used on thin skin, so need to be applied ahead of moisturisers to ensure it can absorb properly (And act as a barrier) to be effective. Eye creams are not just for anti-aging purposes, they also address hydration to make your eye bag area appear plumper and full. If the eye cream you use has a metal lid or applicator this can be used to press against the skin for a cooling effect that will reduce puffiness.

Finally, apply moisturiser to keep all that goodness in. Moisturisers are incredibly important for all skin types to maintain a healthy level of moisture and of course an added bonus if your moisturiser contains SPF to prevent sun damage.

How To: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

FUN FACT: Experts recommend cleaning makeup brushes weekly to avoid nasty build-up of breakout-causing bacteria. Can’t remember the last time you gave your brushes a little TLC? Don't panic! These five quick and easy tips will get you into the routine.

Step One: Wet Your Brushes
Wet brushes with lukewarm water, making sure they’re soaked all the way through.

Step Two: Shampoo
Place a small amount (about the size of a 5c piece) of shampoo into the palm of your hands.

Step Three: Massage
Gently swirl the bristles into the palm of your hand, ensuring you massage the shampoo right through the brush head.

Step Four: Rinse and Squeeze
Rinse under lukewarm water, using your fingers to separate the bristles, until water runs clear. If it’s been a while between cleans, you may need to repeat step two and three again. Once clean, use a towel to squeeze out any excess moisture.

Step Five: Reshape and Dry
Use the towel and your fingers to gently reshape your brushes, then leave to air dry.

How To
Get brushed up brows

Brows have quickly become the centerpiece to our makeup routine and for very good reason. When we first look at someone, the first area of the face we turn to are the eyes, and thanks to the likes of Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins, we are wanting one look for our brows: brushed up and natural. So to celebrate the latest release of three new shades to our Brow Artist Xpert collection, we’re sharing four easy steps for you to follow to achieve the look:

STEP 1: CLEAN & BRUSH
Sounds like an obvious step, but so many of us can be guilty of not properly cleaning our brows before applying makeup. Apply the tiniest amount of shampoo onto the spoolie of your Brow Artist Xpert, run under water and clean your brows in an upward brushing motion. Brushing your brows up now will help you see any places that are looking sparse and needing to be filled in.

STEP 2: TRACE THE BOTTOM BROW LINE
While brushed-up eyebrows are all about looking natural, that doesn’t mean we should skip the steps to making our brows look neat. Use the sharper edge of your Brow Artist Xpert, to easily trace along the bottom line of your arches, starting from the inner brow to the outside.

STEP 3: FILL IN
Starting from the inner brow, lightly draw small, hair-like strokes to the areas that are sparse. Make sure you start from the base of your eyebrow and draw up in the same direction of your natural brow hairs, using the sharper edge near the inner brow and flat edge to fill in the outer areas.

STEP 4: BRUSH AND SET
In case you’ve missed it, brushing is key to this look! Again using the spoolie of your pencil (make sure it’s completely dry from when you used it to clean!), lightly brush your brows upwards again. To really set your brows in place for the day, use the Brow Artist Plumper.
