The Beauty Cloud’s Guide to Festival Hair

Fesitval Season can be a tricky one for us ladies when it comes to keeping those tresses tamed, so I’ve come up with an easy 4-Day guide to easy-to-manage hairstyles to ensure you stay looking gorgeous the whole time.

DAY ONE

Festival Hair says one thing to me Bohemian Glamour!!

Curls and waves created by spritzing on AVEDA ‘BE CURLY’ ENHANCING SPRAY, then curling by patting GHD‘s over pin-curls formed by wrapping hair around 3-4 fingers giving unique curls and waves of all sizes and shapes. By using the ‘Be Curly’ and GHD’s this will give curls that will last and drop into soft waves in 3-4 days.

DAY TWO

Curls have dropped and dressed through naturally giving tousled informal curls and waves. If you have any frizzing, 2-3 spritz of Be Curly Spray again will tame it down.

Lift the front of your brow with a plait creating a practical but kooky twist to the look.

DAY THREE

By now the curls have relaxed into irregular waves. Scoop the hair back off your face with two effortless plaits joining into one creating some boho chic.

If our festival babes are feeling a tad un-fresh a mist of TIERRY MULGER ANGEL PERFUMING HAIR MIST will have you feeling as fresh as a daisy!

Continuing on with some bang on-trend plaits simply just pull hair all to one side, letting shorter layers drop softly then plait loosely into a two-strand plait creating a fishtail, giving a Boho finale to our festival style!!

Make-up of the Day (14/6/2014)

Sorry Ive not posted the past few days, I’m away on holidays next week (yippeeee) and I’ve had so much to catch up on before I go (booooooo).

So since I have two minutes to spare I thought first actually apply some makeup which is alway helpful for a MOTD and then I could pop up a quick MOTD post for you 🙂 Todays look was a nice and bright summer look with flawless skin and soft contouring.

Makeup of the Day (07/06/14)

My Makeup of the Day is not for the faint-hearted. I was pretty disappointed in how the poor the photos were to be honest. What you can’t see is that the darkest parts of my brow is actually a dark purple glitter gel, so it sparkled when I moved. Anyhooooo, this isn’t my actual makeup I decided to wear today, more of a mess about this morning. I had wanted to try and get some matching Ombre lips done too but ran out of time in between clients.

My brows are a Pink to Purple Ombre and I seriously think I would consider rocking it on a regular day…. so get your sunglasses on Belfast as you may just see me out and about with some neon brows 🙂

To create this whole look I used two products:

Sleek Makeup i-Devine Eyeshadow Palette – Ultra Matte – £7.99

Illamasqua – Sealing Gel – £7.00

The Perfect Wedding Companion for any Bride – ‘Agent Zero Shine’

Benefit Cosmetics never stop improving and developing their products. They have recently released a new ‘The Porefessional – Agent Zero Shine‘.

Porefessional, benefit cosmetics, agent zero shine, minimise pores, reduce shine, zero shine, agent zero shine, nuala campbell, makeup, powder, makeup artist. belfast,

This product has been designed to minimise the appearance of shine and pores. What I love about it is, that it’s a ‘complete product’. By that mean, you don’t need to carry around separate brushes or accessories to apply it. Everything you need is right there. It packs a very handy sized brush in the bottom of the bottle.

Sweep on moisturised skin or over makeup to instantly mattify your complexion. Touch up over makeup during the day…or whenever shine dares to return.

I think this product is great for anyone to top-up or set your makeup, but also how amazing is this for Brides! One of the biggest problems faced by brides is the ability to stay shine-free when you are running about in a Cinderella gown all day and night. This handy little bottle is small enough to fit into the smallest of clutch bags and easy enough to whip out and use in seconds.

It really is a very smart new product by Benefit Cosmetics and honestly, I expect nothing less from them.

This gorgeous product is priced at £23.50 (or $30.00). I would like to add that a little of this product goes a long way. This would last for months on end in my opinion. A great investment for girls-on-the-go!

Available at any Benefit Cosmetics store or counter, or online at www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk or www.benefitcosmetics.com

Crunch-Time – Does Lipo-Sculpting really work?

Can you believe how quickly the last four weeks have gone? It seems like yesterday I was writing to tell you about being offered a revolutionary inch-loss treatment at Bellaze in Belfast, and suddenly my four weeks of treatments are up and I am being measured up for that all important inch count.

When the treatment first began, I was having the Lipo-Sculpting Laser work and lay thinking to myself, wow! This is easy! I don’t feel anything and I can expect to lose lots of inches. Well obviously that was only part of the treatment. Not that the other parts weren’t easy. Basically all you have to do is lie on a treatment bed and pick which channel you want to watch, the rest is done for you.

After the Lipo Laser comes the Electrolite and Thermoshape. These are done simultaneously. You have the electrodes placed on your muscles (in my case I was having them on my abdomen region), followed by the Thermoshape wrap. The only way I can think of to describe this is that it’s like having a really strong electric blanket wrapped around the area you are having the treatment on. This in itself was so relaxing. I am a little bit of a heat-junkie, I find it so comforting.

In my first session, I must say I felt like a bit of a wuss. The Electrolite system goes up to level 8 and I managed to get to about 1.5 – See! Told you I was a wuss!  I am happy to say that you definitely build up muscle strength and the ability to go to higher levels each time you go. I think I managed to get to number 6 or 7 by the end. I may have only got to number 7 for 5 seconds, but hey! I still did it.

In all seriousness though, the treatment has had an even more positive effect for me than just the inch-loss. Due to numerous open surgeries on my abdomen, I had lost all muscle tone in my tummy area. I have been attending physio for a couple of months trying to build up core strength in my abdomen to lessen the sciatic pain I have been experiencing caused by over compensation of my back muscles. Even after two treatments (one week), I attended my physiotherapist and she was able to feel a very noticeable improvement in the muscle tone in my abdomen. In fact, my sciatic pain has reduced from being an ‘every-minute-of-every-day’ type of pain to an ‘occasional-pain-when-I’m-bold-and-do-too-much’ type of pain. It has had a remarkably positive effect on my sciatica, which for me is a wonderful result in itself.

laser lip sculpting inch weight lossOkay! Okay! I can feel you urging me to get to the actual nitty-gritty of the situation. Does it actually work? and I can safely say YES! It most definitely works. I was noticing changes the whole way through my 4-week treatment. I have received a lot of comments about how flat my stomach and waist is looking. I would like to add for the record that I have been healthy eating for months now, so although this may work if you continue with a so-so diet, you are best looking at your eating plan to get the best possible outcome.

Over the 4-week treatment plan, I am VERY pleased to say that I have lost a huge 11-Inches in total!

My specific loss was in the following areas:

  • Hips – 5 Inch Loss
  • Waist – 4 Inch Loss
  • Diaphragm – 2 Inch Loss

This is not to be confused with mud wraps etc which draw out the water from your body to make you appear thinner, I have genuinely moved in 4 notches in my belt in 4 weeks.

The staff at Bellaze are really professional and friendly – They make the treatments so personal and I really did look forward to going. I was so sad when I realised that today was my last session.  The clinic itself is extremely clean, hygienic and has a very welcoming feel. There is always ample on-street parking every time I was there.

So whether you have a wedding coming up, have trouble shifting inches off stubborn problem areas or need to fit into that little black dress for an occasion, Bellaze’s Inch-Loss system is guaranteed to help you drop down the sizes. They even have special Bridal and Beach Body packages available.

It was a total pleasure having my treatments at Bellaze and I would definitely consider using them again should my belt notches ever start expanding again. I will write again in another 4 weeks to let you know if the inches have stayed away for good.
