All you need is silk

You may have heard, read about and maybe even seen for yourself the wonders of silk for skin and hair. But did you know that results are maximised and hair can become visibly thicker if you wrap it in silk overnight? Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase is terribly damaging for hair due to the friction caused by tossing and turning and the absorption of oils from the hair. This creates the tangled 'bed head' look in the morning and leads to weak hair, breakage and poor regrowth. Wrapping hair in silk all night prevents this completely.... read more

Lush has launched Confetti perfume!

An exclusive fragrance for spring which was first seen as part of the Lush's Florence collection, this infatuating floral fragrance was invented by Lush perfumer, Emma Dick and will be the fragrance she wears at her wedding this year.Emma began her Lush journey 21 years ago and is one of a close-knit family of perfumers for Lush. Emma's initial workings for this perfume were based on rose, violet, coffee and pear as a combination. When Lush co-founder Rowena smelt the perfume, she thought it smelt of sugared almonds (a pastel-coloured candy almond usually found as a gift on the table at British Weddings). In Italy they have the same tradition for celebratory events and the sugar almonds are known as Confetti - which was a perfect fit. This romantic scent is also featured in Lush's Renaissance Spa treatment and Renaissance Discovery Kit.... read more

Breaking beauty habits with Angela Langford

County Wedding Magazines editor Danielle Harvey says, "Even as a journalist, and having worked as the Beauty Editor here at County Wedding Magazines HQ before, I'm still overwhelmed with all that's on offer in the beauty and wellness industry. There are hundreds of make-up and beauty brands, thousands of products, heaps of online tutorials, and ample tips and advice, how do you honestly find out what's right for you? First and foremost for me with sensitive, eczema-prone skin is the ingredients of my products – what's in it? What am I putting on my face and body? I tend to opt for all-natural products and when it comes to my face especially; for daily cleansing I had resulted in just using Micellar Water for removing my make-up each day. Which, until this winter had proven fine. However, I'm not sure whether it was the change in the weather, or the constant wearing of a face mask – the new normal - I had two irritated patches of skin on my chin area that just would not go.... read more

False lashes: a professional make-up artist's how to

False eyelashes are an effortless glam addition to any make-up look, so even if we are at home for Christmas and New Year's Eve this year, you can still up your game!

Strip eyelashes are the most common and easier to apply on your own. They give a striking look whilst individual eyelashes can provide a more natural finish. Strip lashes are the most popular choice of false eyelash enhancements and can be extremely quick and easy to apply. Any rogue application can be easily avoided with accuracy. To reveal the only way to apply false eyelashes, expert makeup artist at FalseEyelashes.co.uk, Saffron Hughes, shares her secrets.... read more
