Sometimes called party, flare, holiday, or honeymoon lashes depending on the salon you opt for, these are cluster lashes that are stuck on with a semi-permanent adhesive and last for up to a fortnight, and are then supposed to fall out gradually as your own lashes are naturally shed.

They cost less than individual lash extensions

You won't need mascara for as long as they are insitu

They last longer than a strip lash, up to two weeks

They give greta results with less maintenance than classic extensions

Regular Facials....Are They Worth It

BeautyPosted by fay Tue, May 01, 2018 11:30:57

Regular facials…..Are they worth it?

In short yes! Here are 5 benefits from having a regular facial

1.Visible wrinkle reduction.

Gently exfoliating off the top layer of skin will allow more evenly textured skin to come to the surface, causing fine lines and wrinkles to seem less prominent. An anti-aging facial using products from the Natural Element’s range can cause collagen production to kick up which restores skin cells further defending against wrinkles.

2. Unclogged pores.

Dirt, oil, and dead skin cells clog up your pores and cause them to be more visible to the human eye. Having regular facials with can help to decongest your pores and keep them that way. Unclogging pores helps prevent acne breakouts.

3. Rejuvenated appearance.

Regular facials stimulate the production of collagen, which helps reveal new skin that looks and feels smoother and newer. Your skin looks revitalized and refreshed.

4. More effective daily care.

Once you’ve had a facial treatment, you’ve removed icky bits that have been clogging your pores. This means that your regular Natural Elements skin products – moisturizers, creams, serums, and lotions – will be more easily absorbed, and are now more effective.

5. Feeling good!

There’s nothing like the feeling that you’re healthy and putting your best face forward. Having regular facial treatments helps you radiate confidence and makes you feel fantastic. You get an hour to yourself to relax and unwind with the facial treatment plus a relaxing hand and scalp massage.




Luscious Lashes and How to Achieve Them

BeautyPosted by fay Wed, April 25, 2018 14:47:40

How to achieve luscious lashes.

Some people are blessed with luscious lashes while some of us spend a lifetime in pursuit of the doe-eyed look. Here are some of the best ways you can achieve that look…

Mascara

The easiest way to get the look is mascara. Finding the right one for you is usually trial and error. What works for one person may not work for another.

A top tip to make the most of the mascara you use is to use a lash curler and invest in a primer such as Benefit, They’re Real! Applied before mascara this product creates thickness and length.

My favourite mascaras are benefit They’re Real and Arbonne it’s a long story.

False Lashes

Falsies have never been more on trend! A useful addition to your make up kit for nights out and occasions. But they are fiddly to apply (even us professionals struggle) and can feel quite heavy. A great option for impact on a Saturday night but not for every day wear

Individual party/flare lashes give a softer and more natural look. A few applied to the outer corner provide impact without weighing the lash down. But again, they are pretty fiddly to master!

I recommend both Eyelure strip and individual lashes.

Lash tinting

If you are fair haired then a dark tint can give the appearance of longer thicker lashes without the need for mascara. Tinting means you avoid the problem of mascara smudging which is great for holidays. The effects last for 4-6 weeks meaning its low maintenance

Tinting should only be done by a qualified beauty therapist and never let anyone apply a tint without a patch test 48 hours before treatment. Allergic reactions can be very dangerous.

Tinting is available at Beauty by Fay Hildred for £15.00

Lash lifting

This treatment creates astonishing results.

The lashes are essentially “permed” close to the root to create a curl. Giving the appearance of thicker and longer lashes. A tint can also be applied to enhance the look.

Lash Extensions

Individual lashes are glued on to each eyelash to create length and volume. There are numerous lengths and curls available to create a bespoke lash for each individual. A full set of lashes takes up to 2 hours, there are some rules around maintenance and infills are required every 4 weeks or so. But for a fool proof approach to creating a thick and curly lash this is the way to go.

Before investing in lash extensions find a reputable therapist, look at examples of their work and don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions. Ask me for a recommendation
