As you will know if you follow my blog, my instagram, my snapchat ( thelondoncurls ) or subscribe to my YouTube channel (shameless self promotion, I know!) a lot has changed in regards to my hair since my big chop on New Years Eve. Once a committed henna addict, I have bleached my hair not once, not twice, but THREE times in the past month (follow the hyperlinks to see the first two bleaching processes), and therefore the products and care I put into my hair have had to change a lot to accommodate this. Watch my latest video on how I wash and style my hair, and learn more about my new holy grail products.
In my most recent video, I shared how I achieve a picture-perfect radiant glow throughout summer without caking on the make up. (Stand-by for the shameless plug...) if you haven't already watched that make up tutorial, have a watch here! Within the video, I briefly touched upon how I prepare my face for the make up, i.e. ensuring that my skin is clean and moisturised before applying any make up at all to my face. Believe it or not, on a day to day basis I barely wear make up. Unless I really really have to, I tend to go about my business without any make up at all (obviously mascara and eyeliner may be applied if I'm going down to the shops, but that hardly counts, right?) It hasn't always been this way. Throughout school I couldn't bear the idea of walking around with a bare face, and would spend 20 minutes each day applying foundation all over my visage. It was only once I realised that I was genuinely scared to be seen without a mask of foundation that I identified there was a problem. Once I began to follow an effective skincare routine I soon became more confident within my own skin. My skincare routine has evolved over the years, but I can honestly say I have never been happier with my skin. Now I'm not saying throw your make up bag out the window - that would render my latest make up tutorial pretty invalid - but I want to share with you my 7 steps to achieving a radiant glow without any make up at all! So without further ado, lets start, shall we?
