GET THE LOOK: CARA DELEVINGNE’S WINTER WARMTH

Wednesday 22, 2016

Winter is all about natural, healthy, glowing skin, long lashes and a popping pout! Cara Delevingne has been ruling the Red Carpet and fast becoming the 2016 style inspiration for young women and Lulu’s.

 

 Let's face it, her natural beauty, strong brows and high cheekbones are what we all aspire to have, but for now we'll just settle for a little how to guide on achieving this glam beauty look ourselves. 

THE BASE: 

Recreate Cara’s youthful, dewy glow with the beautiful Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation in Tan and watch this lightweight, luminous product smooth over any blemishes and uneven skin tone. This is a very generous product, and a small amount will go a long way, so we recommend a pea sized drop is the perfect amount to start with. It is a buildable product so you can control how much coverage you want.

THE DEFINITION: 

Yes, Cara has strong features naturally – but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t emphasise definition with a little help of contouring! If you are after an amazing contour kit, backed by the Kardashians' no less, then you need to get your hands on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Creme Kit in Medium. With 6 creamy highlighting and contouring shades, this kit is perfect for sculpting, defining and shaping your best features.

THE LASHES: 

They say eyes are the window to your soul, and whether you want to blow someone away or be a little sultry, Velour Lashes You Complete Me are right up our alley!
Winter calls for long, lush lashes and these little darlings can be worn up to 28 times!

SHOP THIS LOOK:

THE LIPS:

Featuring a rich base of red and berry, Gerard Cosmetics Merlot Lipstick has a strong Matte Finish and a highly pigmented hue – a colour which is perfect for Winter.
For those that love a more glossy finish, the Gerard Cosmetics Jewel Lip Gloss is the perfect choice, with its warm hue and glossy, long lasting wear, we know Cara would approve!

What You Need To Know About Choosing a Lip Colour

Wednesday 15, 2016

Have you ever had trouble picking the right shade for your kisser? Well, look no further, we’ve got some amazing tips to help you perfect your pout!

Lip Shape
Firstly, consider the shape of your lips and what you want to achieve. Darker colours make lips look smaller and light or bright colours make lips appear bigger. Take note of whether you want to accentuate or minimise your lip shape before narrowing down lip colours!

Underneath It All

To pick a perfect lipstick you need to know the undertones of your skin.

If the terms cool or warm sound familiar to you then you are on the right track!
If you are unsure of your skin’s undertones, the easiest way is to look at the colour of your veins on your inner wrists in the light. If they appear bluish – you’re cool, if they appear greenish – you’re warm!

 Fair Skin

For light complexions, it usually means choosing lighter shades of nudes, pinks or light browns.
Cool toned gals should go for nude or a soft mocha colour and warm gals’ nude peach or pale pinks. At times you may want to rock a dark lip and you will definitely look amazing, but generally speaking nudes and beiges are universally flattering and brighten up a fair complexion.

 

Medium Skin

With medium skin tones, you have a nice palette of colours to choose from such as browns, reds, fuchsias and peaches. For medium skin with warm undertones, try copper or bronze colours and cool undertones should give pinks and cranberry colours a go.

Darker Skin

When you’re picking the right lipstick for darker complexions, dark reds are sure to make lips look gorgeous. For darker skin cool undertones, try ruby and wine-coloured hues whereas ladies with warmer undertones, coppers and bronzes look pretty.

 

One last thing that we would like to mention is that you should wear whatever colour on your lips that you want – Especially if it makes you feel good! All tones and complexions aren’t the same so experimenting is the best way to make a decision! Have fun Lulu’s! Xx

5 Winter Weather Makeup Tips

Wednesday 08, 2016

The cold will never bother you in anyway, ever again.

Winter has finally arrived our gorgeous Lulu’s, which mean’s new skincare regime is essential to keeping your summer skin time glow and your makeup looking perfect!

Different seasons require different skincare. No matter how much you bundle up in fluffy scarves and jackets, it’s hard to protect your face from the harsh winter conditions. You need thicker creams, masks, serums and scrubs are essential. 

But don’t worry, it is possible to keep your skin looking plump and glowing and your makeup looking flawless - we have five tips to make it easier.

Prep your skin at night

Powerful skin masks such as Tata Harper Moisturising Mask or Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask helps to give dull, dry skin a boost and to make skin feel rejuvenated and revitalised by providing deep and intense hydration with nourishing ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Licorice Extract and Silk Proteins.

        

Wash your face with gentle ingredients

Skin care prep comes from washing your face every day. Go for something gentle and natural like Tata Harper’s Refreshing Cleanser which is designed to thoroughly cleanse the skin, remove impurities, minimise pores and preserve hydration. Did you know that Tata Harper is all natural and has up to 29 active ingredients in each product? Or if you need something stronger on your skin, try Alpha H Liquid Laser Cleansing Oil which has been specifically designed to brighten dull, dehydrated and lacklustre skin with ferulic acid, hibiscus and white mulberry.

Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise

If you have combination or dry skin, try Tata Harper’s Repairative Moisturiser which is a silky formula which continuously replenishes moisture throughout the day and helps to contribute to a radiant complexion leaving the skin with a dewy finish. A concentrated blend of natural humectants continuously replishes moisture throughout the day, whilst Biocompatible Hyaluronic acid encourages hydration retention and helps to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you have oily skin, try Tata Harper’s Rebuilding Moisturiser which is a perfect all day face moisturiser that delivers lasting moisture and keeps your skin free of excess oil and delivers an all-day matte finish. Key ingredients include Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice. 

Keep your smile happy, too

OK, we don’t mean your teeth, but it’s important to exfoliate your lips to get rid of all of the dry, dead skin so you can wear gorgeous lipstick. The US Lip Queen, Sara Happ brings her divine lip scrubs exclusively to Lulu in Australia - Sara Happ Lip Scrub leaves lips ridiculously soft and supple. Use it before bed and finish with the Sara Happ Luxe Balm which is beyond think and creamy and wake up to a soft, kissable and smooth pout.

  

Don’t go overboard on other makeup

With your skin so sensitive and dry, it’s better to ease up on product use in the winter. Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation is a light weight option that still gives you an even coverage. This foundation imparts subtle luminosity that blurs imperfections and creates a soft, focused glow.
