3 Reasons Why You Need a Tangle Teezer

The Tangle Teezer, yes you've probably heard of it, it's a blogger cliche! Yet here I am to tell you 3 reasons why you need one...

1. Tangle Teezers are Easy to use
I have thick long hair. It's great at times but also hard to manage. The Tangle Teezer is the first brush to go through my hair with ease, no bits missed, no pull and no spiky bristles in your scalp. Plus they way it is moulded means its easy to grip.

2. Plenty of designs to choose from
It doesn't matter what kind of style you rock because there will be a design you like! I have an orange one and a purple, with black edges.

3. Different Varieties 

There are different types of Tangle Teezers that do different jobs. For example my orange Tangle Teezer is The Original, but the purple one is a Compact Styler. Meaning it is smaller and has a lid that pops over the bristles so it doesn't get dirty. I'm also looking to buy the Aqua Splash too! This way you can buy something for a specific purpose which I find really handy.

My name is Holly I'm 17, an aspiring makeup artist and photography enthusiast from Manchester UK. My makeup obsession started around 3 years ago, and my collection has continued to grow. I post makeup looks and general beauty pics onto Instagram and have made a few YouTube videos. (Of course you can go have a look at the videos here).

I always start out with a good base for my makeup, this allows it to sit better on  my skin and also keeps my skin moisturised so my foundation doesn't sink into any dry spots. The moisturiser I use is the Nivea pure&natural soothing day cream, this cream is a fast drying and highly moisturising, as I have extremely sensitive skin this cream works so well and doesn't cause any irritation. I also love to use a primer in this case I have recently been using Benefit Pore-fessional, this just fills in any big pores and smooths down the skin texture for foundation.

I'm a foundation before eyes kinda girl so next I will apply my foundation, my favourite is Mac studio fix in NC15, this foundation is really long lasting on the skin and also doesn't cause any irritation like some others do. I then use my Collection concealer in light to conceal under my eyes and cover any blemishes, when you're as fair as me the lightest shade is your skin tone rather than a highlighting concealer. I use my trusty Rimmel stay matte powder to set everything into place to ensure it doesn't slip off during the day.

To fill in my non-existent eyebrows I use my BarryM brow kit with my Zoeva 317 winged liner brush to carve out the shape and a real techniques brow brush to fill in.

For eyes I don't use a primer as I don't think they help so I skip that step, and go straight onto shadows. I apply a skin tone or just some powder to my eyelids to give it a little bit of coverage, and go into the crease of my eye with the warm brown shade from my Mac warm neutrals palette. I also apply the darker brown into the outer v of my eye and blend it through the crease with the lighter shade. I am a big fan of an easy Smoky eye so this is a go to makeup look for me. I then will take the bronze copper shade and apply this onto my lid and blend this upwards to the crease colours. Lastly I will take the darkest colours and line under my eye with this and the top lashline to give the look a dark smudged line. One of the best liquid eyeliners I've tried is the Primark one so I use this most days to give myself perfect wings. To finish the eyes I will apply a couple of coats of my Benefit Rollerlash mascara.

Finally to finish the look I will use my Anastasia powder contour kit and the lightest contour shade to contour the usual areas. To bronze up I will use the other two shades over the top to give a bronzed look to go with the eyes. To highlight because we all know highlighting is the best part, I love using the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick in Rose Quartz on the highest points of my face.

As I have extremely dry lips I usually leave my lips plain and apply some Vaseline because I like to keep the concentration on the eyes.

Garnier The Sleek Perfecter Oil Review

Hi there,

I've been using this Garnier ultimate blends The sleek protector oil for about two months now. I've been focusing on keeping my hair in a better condition and this has definitely helped me along the way. 

I use it after I have washed my hair, just applying 3/4 drops all through the ends and whatever is left on my hands onto the roots. I know it sounds like a lot of product but I have seriously thick hair, which is also getting pretty long now! I also use just a couple of drops if I feel my hair has become frizzy and needs a bit of taming. It definitely helps add shine too.

The packaging is just a simple tear shaped brown plastic bottle but I really like it, the pump means you can easily control the amount of product you get, plus it's great for travelling. 

This is just one new step I have added to try and start more of a hair care routine. So far this product has only exceeded my expectations and I am yet to use it for all of it purposes like for protection against heat.

What hair care products do you recommend?
