If your looking for further inspiration then ….tah da!!! ….. This familiar face may be able to help xoxo

Back from our hiatus, first on the agenda >skin matters…again!

We’re lovers of all brands and we all have different skin tones. MAC has always been the go to brand for many women when it comes to the foundation department, but for us at PinkCrust there were other brands that offered better foundation products. Having tried the MAC mineralize ‘gold deposit’ as a highlighter’ and being fairly impressed, two years later there was a return to MAC this time to try the MAC mineralize Skinfinish powder. Here’s a review from one of our girls

“I’ll start by saying my skin is not particularly sensitive, but some products may cause me breakouts.  I’ve decided to turn things up a notch and make a change to my beauty regimen. I’m not a fan of  MAC bases, as they break me out, but where mineral powder is concerned, I’m prepared to try most brands . This product is brilliant, it gives light coverage, which builds to medium coverage, it stays on all day and is the perfect tone, at the salon I find myself having quick glimpses of my skin and thinking “ah, don’t you look flawless today”  then I remind myself I used the MAC mineralize and get really impressed by the product. But my main, main, main pro point is that, I have had NO breakout…my skin has even seems to of improved, which my be down to the fact that this weightless product does not clog my pores.” -PinkCrust girlie

MAC mineralize skinfinish powder gets a 5/5

Winter eye care

Now we’ve officially hit winter, the struggle to maintain that summer dew begins.
We all know the winter weather can cause the skin to become abnormally dry. The eye area being the most delicate part of the face is particularly vulnerable.
Liz Earles Daily Eye Repair™ is a brilliant multi functional product! it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines moisturises, has reflective particles which is a good base for your concealer too! The ingredients are also 100% natural and the cream contains a SPF barrier(slightly different to an actual SPF cream but in a  nutshell does the same thing)

However, as far as eye creams go, this product would be considered a little heavy so only small amounts are needed. We’d recommend this product to those who tend to get very dry around the eye and would like to hydrate this area rather than use for anti ageing
At £7.25 for a 5ml tube, it’s not badly priced either! http://uk.lizearle.com to make a purchase xoxo

Dont forget about the Gel nail polish….

Yes, we’ve blogged about gel nail polish a zillion times. But here we go again *big smile*.

We’ll make this quick, here’s why you should get them

1- DRIES INSTANTLY
2- MAKES NAILS SUPER STRONG!(no matter how weak the don’t break while the polish is on)
3- LASTS UP TO TWO WEEKS(it really does)
4-NOT DAMAGING(at all)

We’ve been using this for a year, on ourselves and customers and to be honest if it went for the array of OPI and ESSIE colours that the gel nails do not have , normal nail polish would be a thing of the past.

check out the Gelac polish brand in fire engine red(day three of  wear)…hot!

London Fashion week!!!!

Sept 16th-Sept 23rd saw some of the biggest names in fashion come together to showcase their SS12 collections. Our girl Hella was backstage working as a nail technician(As part of the Jenny Longworth team) at a few shows. Whilst there, a few big trends were observed and relayed to the PinkCrust camp. we’ll let a few out of the bag and say that metallics and monochrome black & White zebra print were very prevalent….but if you want to be at the forefront of fashion in the talon department then you’ll have to come into the salon for a SS12 manicure!!!!

beautiful brides go for stunning eyes!

We’ve been busy over  the summer period tending to many brides and the biggest trend by far is the subtle smokey eye.  As lips Can wear away very easily throughout the day many brides have chosen to emphesise their eyes as a way of keep their make up at full effect for the whole day.

top tips to remeber for wedding make up

1. Waterproof mascara ALWAYS!

2. Stay away from fashion trends- You may end up looking very dated  in a decade or so when you look back on your pictures

3.Wear what will make you comfortable- As confidence will always compliment your look!

4. Fake lashes are a total MUST, you will kick yourself if you dont wear them

For bridal trial make up drop us a line at the salon to discuss your big day make up. xoxo
