Caroline shared her tips on creating the ‘Sports Chic’ beauty look:

Start with a flawless, glowing base by using Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation. To perfect blemishes where you need extra coverage or for top up perfection, use Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation

Add a touch of Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush across your cheekbones towards your hairline to create a sophisticated glow

Next, use Max Factor Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel to add definition to your brow. The brush on the end will help shape your brows and remove any excess foundation

Use Max Colour Effect Trio Eye-shadow in Coco Crazy to play with light and dark tones. Place the darkest tone in the socket for wide eyes, or underneath the lower lashes to make small eyes bigger

Use Liquid Effect Pencil in Violet Voltage on the outer corners of the top and bottom lashes; blend outwards with the rubber end to create a feline shape to your eyes

Gorgeous isn’t it?

Caroline did a fabulous demo and has created a look that is really easy to achieve, even though she is still desperately trying to show me where my cheekbones are!!! Even after all these years looking in the mirror, I still can’t find them!!

So what do you think to Sports Chic? I am going to create it at home soon and I’ll show you.

Seriously impressed with these brush on lash extensions from Model Co.

It is one of those products that does exactly what it says on the tin!

It comes in this snazzy 2 pack endorsed by none other than Dannii Minogue, who is the product’s ambassador.

Here is one eye done and the other not. Can you spot which is which?!? This was my first go and a super quick application so I think I can achieve even more impressive results than this if I spent I tiny bit more time.

So this is how it works. There are 2 products. The first is the Extension Mascara and the second is the Lash Fibres.

You start off by coating the lashes with with the extension mascara. This is a super light coat. Excuse the blood shot eyes. I don’t get as much sleep as I’d like!

You then grab the Lash Fibres - they look like this!

And then brush them on top of the first coat of mascara. Looks weird doesn’t it?!

You then follow with another coat of the Extension Mascara and look! Lovely fluttery lashes with that real lash extension look. I would choose these over actual lash extensions any day!

 

They wash off really easily and didn’t cause any irritation. Fabbie!!

I shall be saving this for special occasions as it costs £35, but if I was rich I would be whacking this on every day! My boyfriend couldn’t get over how long my lashes looked!
