The Day’s Eyes: new beauty blog

image1

Starting this little blog three years ago has really fueled my beauty-product-addiction. The drawers of my kidney shaped dressing table are bulging, and my make-up techniques have improved ten fold, so I’ve decided to start a sister blog to Not the Nine to Five, called The Day’s Eyes which will feature a more regular flow of content including reviews, how to’s, and the latest launches. Please do pop on over, subscribe and say hello, it would be lovely to see you all there!

Cherry Red hair dye, L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss

LOreal_casting_creme_gloss_cherry_red_hair_dye_.jpgI’ve been dying my hair for years now with L’Oreal’s Casting Creme Gloss, a semi-permanent no ammonia hair dye. You could say I’m super-loyal. I used the shade Berry Red for ages, favouring its rich, warm and slightly plummy tones, but since the launch of Cherry Red I’ve found myself reaching for this slightly lighter, brighter red for summer. It often surprises me but I get tons of compliments on my hair colour and people are usually surprised in turn to learn that I do it myself at home out of a bottle that costs less than a g&t in London! Here’s my step-by-step for achieving this sassy colour at home…

October beauty favourites!

I always find life starts to speed up at this time of year. Working in publishing there’s always plenty that needs to be done in time for Christmas – stockpiling copy for January issues and putting together special material for any clients’ Christmas activities, so for me it’s a great time to make sure I have some pamper products on hand for the end of a tiring day…

How to: get rid of split ends!

IMG_3646.JPG
Long hair, don’t care? Chances are if your hair is past shoulder length and looking a little ratty then you might! I’ve had long hair for years now, and the longer (and older!) it gets, the worse my split ends become – especially with the added damage from heat and styling. Don’t get your tresses in a stress though, my hairdresser showed me a quick fix for ridding yourself of those nasty ends, even if they go higher up your barnet than you’d like to lose, so you can still have long, luscious locks!

AW14 makeup & beauty trend report

AW14 makeup trend report

Charlotte and I had so much fun writing this feature for local lifestyle magazine, Cambridge Edition. We often trawl through the re-purposed trends from the catwalk feeling a dull sense of déjà vu, but for this one we got together around mine to write the copy together, which is something we haven’t done in ages – usually bouncing ideas between What’sApp and Googledocs. Of course it doubles as a great excuse for our dogs to have a play as well. Toby is fast approaching his first birthday and it’s so sweet to see their little friendship growing and developing. Two dogs who couldn’t be more different, sharing moments 🙂

Be a trend-setter this summer

I’m currently researching into must-have products for AW14. Now, since we’ve been working on these trend reports, Charlotte and I have noticed all certain trends seem to repeat themselves, regardless of style nor season – but i’m ok with this. While I may be wowed by some of the incredible artistry from the catwalks, when it comes to my everyday makeup look it’s way more toned-down – which is just how I want it.
