BARE MINERALS

Bare Minerals is 100% natural mineral make-up. It does not contain any perfume, oil or preservatives that can cause irritation on the skin.

It is a natural looking make-up but one which still gives the coverage you need. It won't feel heavy either.

The foundation contains SPF15 which does give you protection against UVA, UVB and the environemnt and is certified by the cancer skin care foundation.

The make-up is more than just a make-up as it is like a treatment for the skin too. It can help with redness and the overall look of your skin appearance and will never harm your skin, no matter how long you leave it on.

The make up is so pure you can sleep in it.

LVL LASH LIFT

LVL straightens your natural eyelashes at the root, so unlike a traditional lash perm it creates the effect of longer, lifted lashes. They'll stay that way for six to eight weeks, especially when you nurture your lashes with the Nouveau Lashes Condiditioning Serum. The results are immediate, plus the added lash tint creates a mascara-type effect so you are always ready to go.

The treatment takes around 1 hour, although you will need a skin test at least 48 hours before your first treatment. And the gentle formulation has been thoroughly tested and used for over ten years, so you can be confident it will not cause any damage to your eyelashes.

O.P.I.

I love O.P.I. nail lacquers, both for the fabulous colours and the high quality of the products.

I have been using the OPI Nail Lacquer for years, and now also offer their new gelcolor range. This range is fantastically hard-wearing, quick drying and highly glossy.

ST. TROPEZ

This is a great, natural-looking tan that won't give that 'Tangoed' look! It works with the melanin in your own skin, producing a final colour which is the right shade for you.

The actual spraying procedure takes about 15 minutes, is fast-drying and owing to the Aromaguard fragrance technology, virtually eliminates the usual self-tan aroma. You will then need to shower after 4 hours.

With proper maintenance, this tan should last you a good seven days.

I also offer the St. Tropez Express tan which is becoming very popular. This can come up a little darker than the Classic, although it also gives a very realistic colour, and allows a certain amount of control as to how dark you would like it depending on how long before showering off (usually 1, 2 or 3 hours).
