Finding Your Face Shape | The Beauty Department

I’m forever wanting haircuts that don’t suit me. I see a celebrity and think - oh that’s cute, I would love to have my hair like that! After checking my face shape on this handy little guide, I realise that I’m a pear faced lady who really would not look fantastic with a pixie cut or a middle part. And to be honest, Kelly Osborn always has amazing hair so I’m going to Google her and follow her lead, especially with that gorgeous top knot! There are guides for every face type and examples of great hairstyles so follow the guide and learn what suits your face!

Nail Polish Storage | The Beauty Department
All around my house you will find bottles of nail polish. The weirdest place I’ve found it? Next to my driveway. I think I painted my nails in my car, put it next to the car and forgot about it. Yep. Anyway, a storage box would be a lotmore practical and I’d be able to find the one I want without having to go on a treasure hunt! I also really like the way each bottle has the colour painted on top - a lot easier to work out which colour you want at a peek.

The Best Blush For Your Skin Tone | The Beauty Department
As a bit of a makeup novice, I usually choose colours on what I like instead of what would actually look good on me, leading to some very dodgy makeup choices! This is a perfect little guide for all of us on how to choose the best blush - something I love to wear! I’ve been wearing an apricot tone and realised the other day that it makes my skin look weirdly yellow. Time to go out and buy myself a pale pink!

All Black Manicure | The Beauty Department
It’s funny how just like fashion, beauty has it’s trends that are here one day, gone the next! Matte manicures used to be the new black. Then it was the crackle, the magnet manicure and now every girl worth her lipstick is getting lacquer manis! But personally, I’ll always love the look of matte nailpolish - that’s why I love this combo mani. Though my history with using tape with nailpolish has been… murky… I’m willing to try again to get this gorgeous effect!

Easy Brows | The Beauty Department
Quite honestly, I’ve never really cared about my eyebrows. Previous painful, messy and too thin attempts via a rude and inexperienced beauty therapist made me very apprehensive! But seeing these truly gorgeous brows as inspired me to make an effort. Using the Too Faced Brow Envy Kit all you have to do is use the templates in the kit which includes brow powders, tweezers, and brushes to create perfect brows. I’m buying my kit now!

Coconut & Rose Body Scrub | The Beauty Department
This might be the most perfect beauty gift to give someone that I’ve seen in ages! Once you’ve layered your ingredients, the giftee (or you!) smushes it all up before rubbing it on. The coconut oil is at the bottom of the jar and looks ‘solid’ at room temperature. On top of that they have layered rose petals, then raw sugar and finally super moisturising jojoba oil!

DIY Hair Necklace | The Beauty Department
I usually only post DIYs that I myself would want to do, but I gotta be honest - putting this in my hair would end up a massive, knotty disaster. But I love it so much I had to share it anyway! It reminds me of the very popular trend of long dangly ear cuffs that are everywhere at the moment. This does require a little skill - mainly using the pliers to open and close the loops of the chain - but once you get the hang of it you’ll be addicted to jewelry making and there’s no turning back! Haha!
