You’re going to be seeing a lot of blue and purple eye make-up this Autumn Winter (and lilac and violet variations), as it was a big Catwalk trend across Autumn Winter 2014 shows. To get the look check out Miners’ cosmetics eye liner Colour & Kohl in Blue. It’s perfect to wear everyday on the water line of your eye or if you like a more made-up look you can also use it on top of you eye lid. It’s a fairly ligh dark blue, as blues go – more of a Nautical shade. You can also use their Define & Line in Blue liquid liner to add a colour-block effect and/or a feline twist. It’s versatile, long lasting and smudge proof. And actually quite easy to apply – after you’ve practised a few times, of course! Have fun 🙂
Miners Cosmetics Define and Line is priced at £2.99, and Colour and Kohl Blue is £1.99. Availabe at Minerscosmetics.co.uk.
If you like to wear natural looking make-up, you will love this product. It’s called Tin o’ Tint Strawberry, and it’s a coloured lip balm. This time of year, when the weather gets cold and windy, it’s essential that you moisturise your lips with a good lip balm, so this clever little product will multitask for you, giving you both the moisture you need and a touch of colour plus adding a delicious strawberry flavour to the mix. The colour is great, as it’s more of a stain than a lipstick, which is very on trend right now – i. e. natural lips with a hint of blush and healthy looking eyebrows. It highlights your lips ever so slightly to give you that healthy glow and make your teeth look a touch whiter. It’s ideal to wear in the day but also at night if you want to look understated but groomed.
It comes from Miners cosmetics and it’s priced at £2.99, making it a great stocking filler or gift to yourself 😉 We love it at Beauty Spot!
Fresh, fruity and classically British, Tin o’ Tint Strawberry will leave lips feeling soft, smooth and with a hint of soft red tint.
Available at Minerscosmetics.co.uk, priced £2.99.

I know you’re probably just getting your head around the new, fast-approaching winter season, and thinking about which winter coat to buy. But it’s always good to look ahead (and get ahead of the fashion pack) preparing for the season to come. Our favourite hair dresser Adam Bennet went behind the scenes and interviewed Indira S, who was heading Toni & Guy‘s hair team at the Jean Pierre Braganza‘s show . He reported back with bells an whistles – here is what he found out for Spring Summer 2015…
Last season’s intricate braids were gone and everything was more simplified – which doesn’t mean that it’s easier – quite often it’s harder to create a natural look when a model turns up from another show and you have 8 minutes to get the look done! 15 models and a team of 10 stylists from the session team. A very modern and wearable look with a side parting and a tuck behind the ear to create a hippie vibe. It looks effortless, and the good news is that you should be able to do it yourself at home.
Step by Step
Hair was prepped using Label M Blow Out Spray and was blasted dry for natural texture
Slight tousle through the lengths and ends – to recreate this simply wrap hair around a tong for a couple of seconds to create a bend rather than a curl and pull it gently so it cools in a looser shape
The parting was on the same side for all the girls but the fringes were all placed according to suitability to retain character in each girl
To finish Label M Blow Out Spray was sprayed directly onto the hands and gently roughed through the parting to create a more, “lived in” texture
Each stylist backstage has to go through to auditions and a bootcamp in order to prepare for working with the senior session team at Toni & Guy, so you really are dealing with the ‘creme de la creme’ of the hair world. The result? A wearable, elegant, everyday hairstyle we love that you can enjoy next summer. Start practising!
I came across DHC
a few years ago –
Japan’s No.1 online skincare company and cult brand that fuses its Japanese heritage and ancient beauty secrets with the natural benefits of olive oil. They have just introduced a great product: the Olive Body Butter
, a luxurious, high-performance moisturiser with a formula that contains seven botanicals: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil, and it’s simply irresistible. It’s the sort of moisturiser that feels expensive and rich without being oily, it is – in fact – quite the opposite! And it smells of rose and green apple, a combination that works surprisingly well and is actually quite addictive. It’s perfect to help your skin combat dryness and dehydration, and can be used as often as you want and all over your body (or as hand cream, as I’ve discovered!). It’s creamy, decadent, will melt into your skin, and i
t’s available from the 1st of January, the perfect time to try something new. What are you waiting for?
Priced at £15.50 – available from 1 January 2014
