100% jump in on-demand beauty services in the workplace

Ask any professional woman what she never has enough of, the most likely response will be “time.”

Juggling demanding careers, endless meetings, hectic schedules, with a family and social life contributes to that all too common feeling of ‘not enough hours in the day’ for today’s professional women.

However, despite being time-poor, they also want to look their best.  They understand looking good adds to greater self-esteem – and when you feel good, you can be the best version of yourself at home and at work.

But there is also something else to consider. A study has found that women are paid significantly more money if they are well-groomed in the workplace.  Yes, even in 2019 this is the reality in which we live!

Sociologists Jaclyn Wong and Andrew Penner collected data from more than 14,000 employees and found that there is a link between income and effort-based attractiveness.  Naturally, only for women, not men.

Combining personal feel-good factors with the reported economic advantages, perhaps it comes as little surprise then that the number of time-poor professional women in the corporate world using an on-demand makeup and hair service has jumped 100 per cent over the past 12 months.

These are the findings from Beyou, an app that allows you to book make-up artists and hair stylists whenever you want, and wherever you are.

Thanks to the burgeoning on-demand trend, beauty services have advanced into an instant, practical and convenient service at your fingertips.

Indeed, the internet and smartphones have completely changed people’s expectations in regard to these services.

In the same way mobile banking has taken over from traditional branches, due to ease, convenience and the ability to access your banking services anywhere, anytime, having an on-demand hair and beauty service is allowing clients to look and feel great, where they want and when they want, without having to worry about time restraints.

On-demand beauty apps connect make-up artists and hairstylists with people needing their services at a time that suits their frenetic schedules.

Booking a make-up artist and/or hair stylist to come to the workplace proves to be a real time-saver.

As such, the on-demand beauty industry is going from strength to strength, according to a study undertaken by Groupon, on-demand apps currently contribute over $40 bn to the beauty industry.

Therefore, in the same way as Uber and Airbnb are perfect examples of what can happen when you make a product or service instantly accessible to all, the glam-on-the-go trend is taking over the beauty industry.

Summer Proof Makeup Tips Part 1

The Beyou Make-Up Artists’ Tips & Tricks for the Summer Heat.

We LOVE summer, but there’s nothing worse than feeling your make-up melting off when the temperature rises. Using their hero beauty products, the pro make-up artists from Beyou, the make-up artist on demand app, share their tried and tested sweat-proof tips to keep your make-up looking fresh and fabulous through summer:

1.  Pool-Side Primer

Stephanie Traore: ‘Turn your make-up waterproof by using the Hourglass Veil Primer before your base. This state of the art silky primer is perfect for summer partying as it extends your make-up and has an SPF of 15 to help shield your skin from the sun. Another longevity trick, that also helps minimise shine, is to apply a light dusting of powder ahead of your foundation.

2.  Fix Your Foundation

Anna Baxter: ‘Summer heat is a challenge and Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup is my go-to foundation for long lasting coverage. Its transfer-resistant formula and semi-matte finish can last up to 24 hours so is perfect to keep skin looking fresh in the heat.’

Bridal Beauty Base Tricks – Part 2

Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her special day. It’s not just a BIG day, it’s a long day, so makeup needs serious staying power! Using their hero beauty products, the pro make-up artists from Beyou, the make-up artist on demand app, share their tried and tested tips to keep make-up looking fresh and fabulous the whole day long:

3. Ace of Base:

Lexie Taylor: ‘If you want long lasting, good coverage, I personally love Mac Studio Fix Foundation. It’s fairly heavy duty, but can be mixed with a little bit of moisturiser and blended well for a lighter coverage if preferred. This is especially great for wedding makeup (I have seen many brides cry and it does not budge!).’

4. Clever Concealer:

Lexie Taylor: ‘I am obsessed with MAC Select Cover-Up concealers. These are a make-up artist’s favourite for their kits. Not only do they cover blemishes amazingly, they also do not budge!’

5. Blend & Fix:

Sarah Williams: ‘A Beautyblender or sponge creates a base that lasts a lot longer as you’re pushing the product into the skin. Just remember to wet the Beautyblender first so all your product doesn’t just absorb into the sponge.’

Anna Baxter: ‘Finally, finish off your look with a setting spray for extra durability. Try cult product Urban Decay All Nighter Spray, or NYX Matte Finish setting spray for those on a budget.’

Bridal Beauty Base Tricks – Part 1

Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her special day. It’s not just a BIG day, it’s a long day, so makeup needs serious staying power! Using their hero beauty products, the pro make-up artists from Beyou, the make-up artist on demand app, share their tried and tested tips to keep make-up looking fresh and fabulous the whole day long:

 

1. Skin Prep:

Anna Baxter, ‘Prepping the skin is a vital step when it comes to creating the perfect base. This is particularly important for someone with an oily skin type. Although it may be tempting not to moisturise, do not to skip this step. Use an oil-free moisturiser followed by an oil-controlling or mattifying primer. The primer will help to smooth out the texture of the skin and keep your makeup in place all day.’

Sarah Williams, ‘Unless you are prone to extremely dry skin, avoid thick moisturisers and eye creams as they take longer to absorb. Charlotte Tilbury has a range of dry sheet masks that create glowy skin ready and prepped for makeup.’

2. Primer Perfection:

Stephanie Traore, ‘Turn your make-up waterproof by using Hourglass Veil Primer before your base. This state of the art silky primer is perfect for summer partying as it extends your make-up and has an SPF of 15 to help shield your skin from the sun. Another longevity trick, that also helps minimise shine, is to apply a light dusting of powder ahead of your foundation.’
