Our pro make-up artists bring you their top tips to channel Ibiza cool when getting beach and pool-side ready this summer. Whatever your destination, get in on the GLOW trend that’s set to be MASSIVE as the temperature soar this Summer.

Glow trend makeup

Glowing Goddess 

Capture and enhance your summer glow to create the perfect backdrop to showcase bright pops of colour.

Fabio: ‘Put Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks in your suitcase as these quick pops of cheek and lip colour and are brilliant to use on the go. Also make the most of the way the sun plays on skin and catches the sunlight with Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter. You’ll be picture perfect!’

Sarah: ‘Capturing sexy summer skin is easy with all the highlighters and shimmers on the market. A personal favourite is from boho Ibiza icon Charlotte Tilbury. Her Hollywood Glow Wand is everything you need to give you beautiful glowy sun kissed skin. A bright lip is always a winner on holiday and MAC’s Lady Danger is just perfect!’

Stephanie: ‘Use Tan Luxe’s Illuminating Stick for a regal body glow. Simply smooth over your limbs to keep you Ibiza-ready all summer long! Don’t be afraid to go wild with bold colours. Pops of blue on the inner eye corner or a flash of hot pink on the lips is perfect for summer.’

Beyou’s Products of the Week

This week we asked Beyou’s make-up artist Emily Petty to share her three all time favourite products and the reasons why she love them so much.

  1. Mac fix+ spray – gives the perfect finishing touch for a duey look or glow and keeps the skin hydrated.
  2. Bare Minerals complexion rescue tinted moisturiser – the perfect base for foundation and looks good on all skin types even on its own!

Balearic Beauties – the GLITTER trend!

Let The Ibiza Look Inspire You when You Jet Set Off This Summer!

Our pro make-up artists bring you their top tips to channel Ibiza cool when getting beach and pool-side ready this summer. Whatever your destination, get in on the GLITTER trend that’s set to be MASSIVE as the temperature soar this Summer.

Beyou Gypsy Shrine

Glitter Goddess

Embrace your creativity and highlight your assets with glitter and jewels to capture the summer sparkle vibe!

Stephanie: ‘Ibiza is all about rocking the most eccentric, glam version of yourself! Gypsy Shrine is the perfect place to go if you want to sparkle like no other this summer. They have pre-made stick on face and body jewels designs and loose glitter, as fine or as chunky as you dare to go.’

Sarah: ‘The most flattering way to wear glitter is to create a glitter ‘C’ shape around one eye. You can also try taking the direction of the spread of glitter up high and blown out towards the hairline to give a lifted and dynamic look. I like to use PawPaw Ointment to fix glitter to the face and absolutely adore the gems and jewels over at Gypsy Shrine!’

Lexie: ‘Glitter is a massive summer trend. My tip for applying glitter is to use VO5 hair gel as it’s amazing at holding glitter in place. Don’t be afraid to take glitter beyond your face and into your hair! Try adding glitter to lips as a quick way to embrace the trend. Use your normal lipstick then add a touch of gloss and a dab of glitter. Or try the pre-made jewel and glitter designs that you simply stick on and you’re good to go.’

Best Friends in Beauty Business

Female entrepreneurs are leading a revolution in the world of business thanks to the advances in technology giving rise to self-employed women turning their business dreams into reality.

The Business Opportunity: After spotting a gap in the beauty app market, best friends Charlotte Green and Nawal Alkhedairy took the plunge to create and launch their own beauty app. In 2017, their creation Beyou was born, a free mobile app that allows you to book make-up artists straight to your door. Beyou’s ethos is to achieve the best version of yourself, while celebrating your own individual look and style.

From Classroom to Company: Having met at school in London at the age of 11, Charlotte and Nawal, now both 30 years old, have a long running history of discovering beauty together. As teens, they would do each others make-up and experiment with new looks in their bedrooms. As adults, they had both spent several years living abroad in Dubai, where they became accustomed to the UAE’s booming beauty market and the high level of treatments and services on offer. Upon returning to London, both Charlotte and Nawal had a fresh perspective on the beauty industry and were inspired to raise the bar in the on demand app market.

Charlotte had played a dominant role in her law career until recently becoming a mother in 2017 and Nawal comes from an events management background, having worked for a high-end luxury fashion brand. The duo combined their passion for beauty and their entrepreneurial drive to become business partners.

 

Beyou’s Products of the Week

This week we asked Beyou’s make-up artist Debbie Slater to share her three all time favourite products and the reasons why she love them so much.

  1. Mac cream colour base in the colour ‘Hush’ – it’s gives the skin the dreamiest glow and is always my go-to when creating a dewy.
  2. My favourite style of makeup is what I like to call Heroin-Chic. Think really blended, diffused colours on the eyes – my faves for this look are Mac Cosmetics ‘Swiss chocolate’, ‘Omega’ & ‘Wedge’. 
  3. The other look I absolutely adore is a pop of colour on the lips and once again Mac cosmetics have nailed it with their orange/red ‘Lady danger’.

One makeup rule you should never break


This week we asked Beyou’s make-up artist’s to share their one makeup rule that you should NEVER EVER break:

SKIN PREP IS KEY:

  • “Prep the skin, lots of moisturisers is key to a flawless base” – Fabio
  • “Skin Prep. Good hydration is a key to good looking skin, and skin is the key to good looking make-up!” – Maya
  • “Never skip primer! If you think your foundation looks flawless in the morning but notice it breaks up or looks fatigued later on you have probably skipper primer. It creates a smooth and flawless base for your foundation to adhere to, making sure it lasts the day. My favourite is Diorskin Forever and Ever – one universal shade, oil free, SPF 20 with extreme hold.” – Suzanne
  • “ Never skip skin care in your routine its the foundation of great makeup!” – Emily

REMOVING MAKEUP:

  • “Never ever sleep in makeup!!” – Sarah
  • “Always remove your makeup at the end of the day. It helps to prevent ageing and properly cared for skin leaves you with the perfect canvas for your next look!’ – Laura

HYGIENE:

  • “When it comes to applying makeup I really don’t believe in sticking to the ‘rules’. There is no rules..aslong as it looks good you can switch up brushes/products etc…but my one rule I wouldn’t break is…Washing your makeup brushes. Not only is it important to be super hygienic..makeup goes on a lot smoother with nice fresh brushes.” – Lexi

MAKING YOUR MAKEUP LAST LONGER

  • Stephanie Traore – “Always powder after putting on make-up to keep your face shine-free all day:”

DO WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO DO:

  • “Makeup is art and I always say to my clients there are no rules. You do what you gotta do, however you gotta do it to create the look you want to achieve.” – Jess
