Curling Irons

Question

How many inches should I look for in a curling iron to give me big loose beachy style curls as seen on Blake Lively?

Answer

Hello

Every make is different but to achieve that look I use my large GHD and then run my fingers through the hair once I am done doing all the curls. You want to look for something that is roughly 3-5cm in diameter  so that you can get more of a wave rather than a curl. Once you have done all your curls separate them, take individual strands and re-curl them slightly to give you the same effect as Blake’s. You can finish this off with a hair oil or a setting spray.

Eyeshadows

Question

I find eyeshadows daunting. So many colours and I don’t really know what to do with them or how to pair them to create a look. I would like to know, what colours do you recommend for dark brown eyes and a medium to dark complexion. Could I also go with bold colours like yellows, pinks, purples, blues…? I really like the smoky eye look.
