Beauty works hair extensions!

BW blog cover

Heyy Guyss

Its almost the weekend!!!

SO I have a new video and post for you on some new hair extensions I am trying out.

The company is called Beauty Works – www.beautyworksonline.com – and they have sent me some hair extensions and products to try out! I was super excited as I have been looking for a UK based Hair supplier, as I know a lot of you based in UK don’t like the idea of buying things from USA as they can take a while to arrive plus you have import duty which bumps the price up!

ANYWAY!

I have filmed a video for you showing you the new hair and also 5! yes 5! ways to wear them! I get a lot of questions about how to wear clip ins, like up in ponytails etc, so I thought I will show you a few ways in one video so its all together and easy.

This is what Beauty Works sent me…

I LOVE the packaging the extensions come in! The extensions they sent me are the Balayage by Jack Howard range 150g – 20″ and in the colour Brasilia.  They also sent me the aftercare for them, Shampoo and conditioner, deep mask treatment, heat protection spray and the hair serum.  All these products have argan oil and keratin in them and they really smell amazing!

They have lots of different options on the site to suit a lot of needs, from clip ins, half head pieces, individual bonds and they also have a large colour selection so you can find your perfect shade!

They were kind enough to also give me a discount code for you guys, so you can use the code

This will get you 15% off any order over £50!! pretty good eh!

Valentine’s Day Makeup

val day make up blog cover

Hey Guyssss

So Valentine’s day is just around the corner, its next SATURDAY, for any guys reading this (doubtful!)

So here is my first of hopefully two makeup looks I have created for you for the special day!

To be honest I am not a fan of Val Day! Don’t get me wrong if I don’t get any flowers I will be having words! BUT that is all, I won’t be going out anywhere for dinner, I doubt, unless maybe with a group of friends of something, I just find it super cringe that you go to a restaurant and there is basically just S**t loads of tables for two jam-packed together so your basically eating a romantic meal with the couple next to you!

ANYWAY

I am all about cute little gestures and I think personally it is a lot more romantic if like someone takes you some where different or they just surprise you with a homemade dinner for two and throw a few cheesy rose petals around! hehe

SO that was a long old ramble! on to the good stuff MAKEUP!

Here is some pics of the first look I created, this one is definitely more romantic, soft and pretty, something I NEVER do, I always wear dark eyeshadow never light so this was very different for me but I love how it turned out.

January Blue Monday blues!

jan blues blog cover_edited-1

Hey Guyss

So I don’t know if its just me BUT I get terrible January blues, every year, same time and apparently today is Blue Monday a day that the media have decided to let us know its ok to be depressed on! ermmm NO how far is that going to get us if we actually say oh no don’t worry guys its Blue Monday, you are allowed to be down today! Like seriously what the F!

SO

I was determined this year to NOT let this happen! its so stupid its just another day in another month so why do we get like this?! I think for me its just because like its another year passed where you most likely haven’t done everything you set out to do and its a time of reflection of your past year, so if you had hoped to achieve more than you did, then you are probably going to get a tad down in the dumps about it!

I do think its a good idea to look at your past year but this time I have tried to focus only on the things I HAVE done and my goals I HAVE achieved, this has definitely helped me a lil bit.  I am not going to lie to you and say I haven’t had a few down days this month so far but no where near as bad as usual! I have been trying to focus on this year coming and what I want to do! I bought myself a cool new diary (see pic below)

tashietinks dairy

How cool is this customised diary though! I want to be more organised and I think if you have cute things like this it makes you want to write in it! like when you buy new gym gear makes you go to the gym more, even if its only to walk around the gym showing off your new kicks, you still made it to the gym and that my friends is a step in the right direction!

Anyway so to keep me busy and take inspiration from my January blues in a positive way I have made it in to a make up look! haha

Here I have used myVice 3 palette I got for christmas by Urban Decay – it has some AMAZING shadows in it but this matte navy blue caught my eye so the look started with this colour! Paired with some new Lashes by HUDABEAUTY which i also got for Christmas!

Here are some pics and then see video below : )

PS if you have any video requests please let me know what you would like to see!

Ariana Grande half up hair using Bellami hair extensions

ariana blog cover

Heyyyaaaa

New video for you : )

Sooo Im kinda in love with Ariana Grande right now, super sad I know but she is so cute!! and I LOVE her hair! she has like this signature look of the half up half down, almost like a ponytail from the front but the back is down, it makes your hair look super long!

Anyway so I found this pic, on her instagram of the look wavy/curled and fell in love so I have recreated this using my bellami’s. You could do the classic straight look also but I just liked this one soooo much!!

ariana hair

SOURCE – Instagram – ARIANA GRANDE

OK so first off its pretty tricky to do up styles with clip ins, you have to plan it ahead and position them different to the standard way you would as if you were wearing them down, I explain this in the video!

So here is the look I came up with, on reflection I wish I had put in more clip ins! it felt super super thick! but when I then compared it to hers! I felt I needed even more thickness, but I think the way I have done it is a little more wearable and not as dramatic so you can choose how thick you want it or if you have long thick hair already then lucky you! skip the clip in section and skip straight to the upness!

See below for video tutorial on how to achieve the look

Hope you liked this look and I may not see you (through the lens) before Christmas so if I don’t then I hope you all have an AMAZING one, enjoy it, spend it with friends and family and eat lots of yummy food!

My fav foundations!

foundation blog cover

Hey Guys

I think the most common question I get from you guys is

“What is the BEST foundation?”

Serioously!!! I get asked this ALL the time! Which is great I love getting questions from you asking my opinion and advice, but this is like the hardest question to answer! Anyone who has asked me this knows that I give a seriously long answer, listing about 4 or 5 different foundations and ALWAYS ask what skin type you have.

There are some key questions you need to ask yourself when looking for your perfect foundation!

Whats your skin type?

Dry?

Oily?

Combo?

What finish are you looking for?

Matte?

Dewy?

Natural?

How much coverage do you want/need?

Full?

Medium?

Light?

Ok so I am not going to write down every question! BUT you do have to ask yourself these questions to really find your perfect foundation on your own.

Personally my skin type is kinda oily, like, ok, it gets oily in the T-Zone easily but the rest of my face is just normal, not dry, just normal.  My skin is also quite sensitive in the way that some products will break me out, this is a massive NONO! I like a dewy finish but this is also hard to achieve with an oily t-zone! not impossible but tricky! I like a medium coverage, I don’t really like to build my foundation up too much to a full coverage as I like it to look as natural  yet perfectly flawless as poss!  This is what I go for most of the time, however, I do sometimes switch it up and with some looks I like a matte finish or a light coverage, so I have a few different foundations to suit the look I am feeling that day/night!

SO

Here is whats in my main draw at the moment! (current ones I use the most!) my top 3! not in order as I couldn’t decide!

L’OREAL TRUE MATCH

For those of you who think you can’t find a great foundation at the drugstore, well I’m sorry to say, you would be wrong!

This foundation is probably my most used and has been for a long time now for these reasons

It is soooo reasonably priced! around £9.99 HERE

They have such a large colour selection! (hence why I have so many!)

It lasts really well and looks good in photos, it has a build able coverage so is good for Day or Night and is super easy to blend!

The finish is like natural to matte I would say, like it’s not dewy but it’s not super matte either its just natural then I guess!

loreal true match

Next up is a new fav and if you follow me on instagram you would of seen me post this! its the

DIOR STAR FOUNDATION

Around £32.00 and available HERE

OK so this one is new, a little pricey but I have been using it non stop for like 2 weeks ish, so far I do love it BUT it may, MAY, be breaking me out! it’s not long enough to tell for sure as I’m at that breaking out time of the month! (TMI) so I am going to keep using it and will keep you updated! because the finish is amazing and super hard to explain. It’s not dewy and def doesn’t make me oily but it has like this glow, I think it looks like an inner glow! haha that sounds cray cray but it is like light illuminating! it lasts ages, medium coverage but could be build able, the product itself is thicker than I thought but super easy to blend. At the Dior counters they have a little gadget they put against your skin and it throws out your perfect colour : )

DIOR STAR

Next up and making it in to my top 3 is

MAKE UP FOREVER HD FOUNDATION

Around $42.00 so thats around £27.00 available from Sephora HERE (they now ship to UK!!!!)

WOW ok so I went on to the Sephora site to get the link for you guys and well that was like an hour ago and £157 later! eeekkkkk

ANYWAY

This foundation is phenom! I personally think its the best one for photos, its a natural flawless finish, great coverage, still medium but build able without being heavy or cake, it is fairly thick ish with amazing colour selection.  Supposedly this is the one Kim K wears so its must be good right?!

A Little annoying to buy if you’re in the UK as you can only buy it online, no stores sell it here, so unless your super confident in choosing your colour by a photo or you’re planning a trip to Europe, I think Paris would be our closest store! (Great excuse to head over there!)then it’s a little tricky one! If it helps the colour I bought which was kinda blind as it was at IMATS and was like the busiest stand so it was like a grab what you can! I went for this one and I am an NW30 in Mac and this colour seems to suit me perfect.

MUFE

OK so that is my current top 3!

Others that I do use and love are

YSL TOUCHE ELCAT

Around £30.50 HERE

Great for a more dewy glowy finish

YSL

Next up

ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR

Around £26.55 HERE

Great full coverage (if you build it) matte finish but not drying, super super long wearing and def doesn’t break me out at all!

ES DW

Finally another Drugstore one, also by L’Oreal

L’OREAL NUDE MAGIQUE

Around £9.99 HERE

This is my most natural one it literally is like your skin but better, you can wear it on its own with no other make up if you want to pop to the shops but don’t want to look all uneven and blotchy! but it doesn’t look weird, you know like that I have foundation on but forgot to do the rest of my face weird look! it doesn’t look like that at all! really natural.

nude magique

There is still a few foundations out there on my wish list so let me know what your favs are as well so I can try them too!

My wish list is

NARS – Sheer Glow

Armani – Luminous Silk

EX1 Cosmetics – Invisiwear liquid (meant to be great for olive skin tones, in fact I might go buy this now! its great value! like £10.50 HERE)

I hope this post has helped you out if you are looking for a new foundation, if anyone does have any questions I am happy to give further help and advice on the products I’ve mentioned as I am sure there will be more questions! : )

Thanks so much for reading this very long post for me!

How to get BIGGER lips!

bigger lips2

Hey Guys

So quick video for you on how to make your lips look fuller and plumper using make up only!

I have had lip injections/filler in the past, the last time I had it done was around 2/3 years ago and I have no product left in now, I’ve had it done like twice before and I would probably get it done again, maybe, but I just think that doing these make up tricks really does make such a difference! With lip fillers it is very risky IF you don’t research your doctor and go to someone who is highly skilled at what they do, Lip filler I believe is like an art, that sounds mad but it really is! I have had it done by 2 different people both Doctors I work with (I work for a cosmetic surgery company, if you didn’t know!) and both times were very different, both times I was happy with them, just different! lol But all i am saying is I am very open to people doing whatever they feel will help their confidence and feel better about themselves, even though I think no one NEEDS anything done everyone is beautiful in their own way BUT its a personal choice, if YOU don’t like something that much then change it….

It can be very scary getting something like this done, what if it goes wrong? what if people laugh at me? what if I have duck lips!? so I really can’t stress enough how important it is to find the right doctor for you and don’t go for cheap deals or ladies doing it at their homes! this is a nono! Do your research! know what product they are using, at the end of the day this is being injected into your body and is going to remain there for around 12 months!

If anyone is thinking of doing this or wants any advice please feel free to comment below or email me if you don’t fancy the world knowing! hehe

ANYWAY! that bit wasn’t meant to be that long! but it is something i am kinda passionate about!

So back to the NO INJECTIONS lip filler!

Make up can make a MAHOOSSIVE difference!

look at this before and after of mine from the video!

befroe and after lips

Seriously look how big and full they look! this is no effects, no retouching, no gadgets, no injections!

Hair Kandy – Weekend Recovery – PRODUCT REVIEW

hairkandy blog feature image

Hey there!

So Hairkandy.com got in touch about some new products they had coming out designed especially for hair extensions! I had been looking for a product/conditioning treatment for my extensions for a while as it always seems such a waste to just throw old ones to the back of my hair draw!

So I was super excited that they were sending me some of their WEEKEND RECOVERY TREATMENT to review!!

Feeling hopeful and excited at all the new extensions I would have after the product restored them!

My product bottles look a little yucky! but that is Mr Postmans fault! as they arrived to me with a leak! but if you have a look at the products on their website the packaging is very simple but nice and bright coloured.

The weekend recovery treatment I have reviewed is $39.95 (around £25) not cheap but not too expensive either and that is for 4fl oz of product, they describe the product as “A spa for your extensions!”

I have filmed a review video of me testing the product out, see below, and I must admit I was really impressed with it, my old extensions feel so much better, they’re not frizzy at all anymore and not getting as tangly! RESULT!

If you want to try it out here is the link to go buy, and they do ship to the UK also

BUY HERE

hairjkandy productshairkandy before and after

As you can see in this before and after image the extensions are so soft and shiny after the treatment it made a huge difference to them!

Watch below full video on how to use the product and so you can see the results and my true honest reaction to it!

Any questions please do let me know!
