Wow Brown Defintely Has The Wow Factor

Wow Brown Defintely Has The Wow Factor

Most of us girls and men of course like to be sun kissed and bronzed. Why not, Not only does tan make us look like a million dollars, it gives us confidence and a feeling of positivity about ourselves.

I have been on the hunt for The perfect Tan. I have tried Mousse, lotion, creams and oils.I have found some good products but Wow Brown is Just Wow.

I was over the Moon when I received Wow brown Tan ,it arrived just in time as I had an event that weekend.  I had two options of wow brown tan to choose from DIY medium/dark lotion or Ready to glo dark tanning liquid. I decided to try the medium to dark lotion and here is how it went.

 

 

The texture:

The tan is a coloured lotion which makes it very easy to see the application on the body. The consistency of The tan is a thick liquid. It spreads very well over the body and allows you time to blend into the skin.

 

Drying time:

It Dries fully within 15-20minutes.

 

Smell:

I detest smelly tans and I was delighted that wow brown had minimal tan smell during and after application

 

Lasting time:

The Tan lasted me about 1 week and it wore off gradually after the week, this was the most impressive aspect of the tan, it wore off non patchy and didn’t have a dirty appearance.

Overall rating – 9\10

I was very impressed overall with Wow brown tan. I absolutely loved the colour, I had so many complements on it. I was also really impressed that I had no tan transfer onto my clothes as I find sometimes even after washing off tan this can still happen which bugs me.  It wore off 100% which was a massive plus for me . It has been my favourite tan to date.

Michelle wanted a make-up look that would suit the theme of the day. So I took into account the time of year , décor, styles of dress and what would suit Michelle to perfection.

The Make-up was a classic look with my unique style. I went for warm brown shades on the eyes which I used The blank canvas master palette. I added a tint of champagne pigment on the lid to really make them eyes pop perfect for the Christmas season. The skin was fresh with a dewy glow with chiselled cheekbones and a peach tone blush on the apples of the cheeks. I finished off with a bold Deep red lip. I LOVE red lips on brides for a christmas wedding it’s so festive.

Enhance your eyes with Baby Doll lashes

Enhance your eyes with Baby Doll lashes

Lashes are a must have in my kit when creating makeup looks. They can intensify the eye makeup and can give the illusion of a bigger eye shape.  Lashes come in different lengths, thickness and styles. I have always found it difficult to find the perfect lashes, the brands would lack in a selection of styles or the band of the lash strip were too thick and are difficult to apply to the eyes.

I Have finally  found the most spectacular lashes.  Baby Doll Cosmetics are an Irish company who launched in 2013 at the RDS. They have a wide range of lashes in different lengths and thickness to suit all individuals.  I have been using BAbydoll lashes for about a year now and I still love them as much as day one., the quality of the lashes are amazing they are lightweight and easy to apply.

The lashes

My favourite are the 870 lashes, they are an average length with a demi wispy effect. The lashes are natural but yet still achieves fullness of the eye.

870_3_large

If you prefer more length and minimum thickness the 795 are the ones for you. I get asked so many times, what lashes i’m wearing when wearing these beauties, the 795 they are light enough for daytime use. They are perfect if you naturally have thick lashes but need to add that extra length.

7955_large

If you like the full dramatic look the 807 are your dream lashes, they have amazing fullness and are super dark, perfect to add definition to the eyes.  Great lashes for party nights out perfect for  a bold make up look.

Catriona wanted a Bohemian style wedding with a vintage twist, we discussed looks in her trial and I created a look that focused  on the l winged liner  and a red lip. I choose MAC lady danger for Catriona MAC  lady danger is so vivd and beautiful and defintely makes a statement. Its warm orange based undertone really complemented Catriona fair skin tone  and was perfect for her wedding theme. she wanted a fun  creative theme with lots of colour so this suited her makeup look just perfect..

 

Her Bohemian style theme was elegantly brought into the the headpieces and her bouquets which were so beautiful, the colours and textures were outstanding and it really set the theme off to a tee.
