Getting Ready for the Holidays + Christmas Giveaway: Makeup Gift Sets

The holidays come with a long list of to-dos — decorating your home, organising parties, grocery shopping, gift shopping, dress and makeup shopping, the list is endless. Is “get myself ready” on your list too?

Here are some tips on how to have a truly happy holiday:

  1. Organize your to-do list. Group them in categories — home decor, groceries, gift shopping schedules, and the most important of all – ME.
  2. Make a list of the parties you’re attending so you can prepare your dress (especially if it’s a themed party), your makeup look, and your gift (you don’t want to come empty handed).
  3. Make a list of the gifts you want to buy and group them according to family, friends, godchildren.
  4. Get “generic” gifts. It’s hard to give gifts that you will have to return to to shop to be replaced for a bigger size. But oh, keep the receipts just in case!
  5. Personalize generic gifts with cute gift cards or include an item that you think they’ll love. For family and close friends, you might want to know their wishlist!

And the most important of all:

Give yourself a gift! You deserve to be pampered for working hard this year. Get a set of outfit or two, new makeup to welcome 2017, and a ticket to your favourite holiday destination. No, that’s not splurging. It’s called loving yourself a little bit more. Happy holiday!

How to Make Your Lashes Longer

Since 4000BC, when records show Ancient Egyptian women used kohl to darken their lashes, women all around the world have been going to great lengths (‘scuse the pun) to achieve long, luscious eyelashes.
We’ve gathered our best tips and tricks to achieving long lashes without having to resort to falsies!

Liner Love
Apply your eyeliner close to the lash line to create the illusion of more hair at the roots than there really is. Our Liquiliner has a easy-to-use slim, flexible brush made from natural hair, making precise application a breeze even for first-time liquid liner users. Even better, this liner contains a 100% natural algae Bio-Boost complex that uses natural phytohormones and bio transformed Ginger Root to stimulate the hair follicles and encourage growth.

Use a Curler
Invest in an eyelash curler to add extra volume to your lashes. Use it BEFORE you apply mascara and clamp your lashes as close to the roots as you can get to achieve maximum volume.
Don’t have a curler handy? Take a teaspoon and warm it up with hot water then dry it completely. Make sure it’s not too hot so you don’t burn your eyelid then hold it against your lashes with the concave part facing your eye. Finally, press the underneath of your eyelashes firmly with your thumb against the edge of the spoon and hold.
This isn’t as effective as having an eyelash curler but it will do in a pinch!

Long-term Love
Find a mascara that is not only designed to make your lashes look longer while you’re wearing it but helps them grow so you can maintain long lashes long term.
Our Lush Mascara has a protein-rich formula with nine botanicals and Vitamins A, C and E to condition and nourish your lashes.
If you have sensitive eyes or wear contact lenses, our Sensitive Mascara will help you achieve long lashes without having to endure itchy, irritated eyes all day.

Wiggle, Wiggle
When applying mascara, hold the wand at the base of the lashes and wiggle from side to side before brushing upwards to the end of the lashes. The wiggle will help evenly distribute mascara and create a base to make your lashes appear fuller.

Brush and Repeat
Apply one coat as above then and allow to dry while you do the other eye. Go back and brush the top quarter of your lashes with your Lash Comb to avoid clumping and create a natural, feathery look. If they’re not quite long enough yet, apply another coat of mascara using the technique above and repeat.

Rest and Repair
It’s important to properly remove all traces of eye makeup before you go to bed to give your lashes some time to breathe. NEVER pick your mascara off! We know it can be tempting but it will pull your lashes out and damage them.
We suggest Pevonia’s Eye Makeup Remover. It’s gentle, calming and decongesting, combining Lettuce, Cucumber, and Arnica to remove your eye make-up without pressure or friction.
