BEAUTY MISSGUIDE: GLOW FOR GOLD

At Missguided, we’ve unlocked the secret to the perfect tan for that big night out, glow for gold and read our guide for top tanning tips!

How to Tan for a Night Out

Tanning tip – Whether you’re celebrating something special or just fancy dressing up to the nines, a perfect tan is the ultimate accessory!

 St. Moriz have created the ultimate no fuss night out tanning in the form of their Instant Wash Off Shimmer Tan. Smooth it on and voila! An instant golden gleam that will wash away at the end of the night. Ensure your pins are party perfect with a slick of tan on smooth skin! Remember to leave 24 hours after shaving or waxing before applying any tanning products and let it dry thoroughly before you get dressed, tan lines on your clothes are not a good look.

Painting Your Nails with a Tan

Nail tip – Graphic nail art in monochrome shades makes a strong contrast against the shimmer.

Clothes – Dare to bare your legs, go for warm peachy tones that enhance your glow, and add embellishments! Try the Missguided Mizzy Embellished Collar Playsuit – it’s the ultimate girl’s night out get up!

MISSGUIDED AT LOVEBOX FESTIVAL

Festival fever is in full swing and we were lucky enough to head down to Lovebox in sunny London this weekend! Bang in the middle of the heatwave, the temperatures were sky high and the atmosphere was incredible, it felt more like we were in the Bahamas than Bethnal Green! But of course the music was the main reason we were there and it didn’t disappoint, with performances from MNEK, Kiesza, headliners Chase & Status and our personal favourite,  Katy B, who got the crowds going crazy.  We’re going to brighten up our Monday morning by blasting ‘Broken Record’ through our headphones and relive the moment!

HOW TO CORNROW HAIR

Whether you’re wearing them to keep your hair out of the way whilst sunbathing, or to keep your hair tame under your winter hats, the cornrow braid is a trend that will be hot all summer and continue throughout Autumn/Winter.

 Unfortunately, not all of us have a hair stylist to help us out every morning like Ms Jenner who has been seen rocking the braid style several times. So, how easy is it to do a cornrow braid? Well, watch the step-by-step video that Vogue put together below that makes it all just look so easy.

 We know what we’ll spend our time doing this weekend…

 Tip: This look works best with 2-4 braids. Just try your hardest to stay away from the Katie Price circa 2004 look.

THE LIPSTICK TEST

Hey girls, I’m Eleanore and I work on the Blogger Outreach Team here at Missguided HQ.

I never leave the house without my lippy on, I feel naked without it.  My childhood hero was the one and only Gwen Stefani, who in my eyes was the queen of red lips! So over the course of a working week I tested out 5 lipsticks from our rad makeup range.

Day One

THE LIPSTICK TEST

how to choose a lipstick

Barry M lip paint in pink sparkle> Shop here > £3.99

This is not a colour I would usually go for but I loved it.  It’s really easy to apply as the colour isn’t too strong, it stayed on until mid-afternoon which is pretty good and didn’t clump.  Overall, it’s a great summer’s day shade for wearing with floral prints and summer dresses. Team with a dark eye to make it a little less girly.

Day Two

choosing the right lipstick for your tone

how to choose the right red lipstick

Barry M lip paint pillar box red> Shop here >£3.99

I loved the colour of this lipstick.  This is not a tram/car lipstick because you have to concentrate pretty hard putting it on.  It didn’t last as long as the first lipstick,  lunch time was the death of this one but still I’d say it’s the perfect night out lippy with your LBD and some killer heels.

Day Three

rimmel lipstick review

 

Rimmel London lasting finish colour rush lipstick in I want> Shop here > £5.49

Surprisingly, this was my favourite lipstick of the week.  The colour is so vivid and really eye-catching. It’s perfect for summer or at festivals as it stayed on all day and night!! I woke up the next day and still had a little tint on my lips. The pencil makes is so easy to apply too. The only downside is that it did dry my lips out slightly, but mixed with some gloss and it was perfection.

Day Four

choosing the right lipstick

Barry M lip paint in cranberry red  > Shop here > £3.99

I loved the darker tone of this lipstick. It’s got a sexy siren kinda feel. It would look great if used as an ombre effect or with gloss applied over the top. It didn’t survive past lunch time and was pretty hard to apply so I would suggest a lip liner with this one.  I think it would look hot with a done up shirt, skinny jeans and heels.

Day Five

Testing lipstick

Rimmel London apocalips lip lacquer in big bang> Shop here > £5.99

This one has an incredible colour!! This is the Linx effect lipstick, guys will be dropping at your feet with this one. It’s the Sandy in Grease moment, and the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone moment in Gangsta squad. Its high shine and high impact.  Just keep an eye on your lips, it could be all over you face pretty quickly as it was with me. I would suggest getting the excess off with a little tissue after applying and maybe don’t eat while wearing. Strictly sexy glances and sultry smiles.

BEAUTY MISSGUIDE – GOLDEN GIRL

Wanna look like you’ve just stepped off a flight back from your holidays? Check out our top tips on how to get that Bahama mama look and dress to make the most of it!

How to Tan in Summer

Tanning tip – If you’re out partying this weekend, start your prep early!

For the ultimate medium toned tan, all you need is a St. Moriz Medium Mousse and a slick of the St. Moriz Instant Wash Off Body Tan before you start getting ready to really enhance your glow – whilst keeping your look chic and natural. Keep your tan fresh by moisturising daily with an oil free moisturiser to make your look last. Double check you’ve moisturised top-to-toe before you apply your tan, paying attention to the danger zones – aka wrists, elbows, ankles, knees and feet – anywhere that may be dry and make your fake tan obvious! Remember – let moisturiser fully sink in before you apply any tan to avoid major streakage!

Tanning for summer

Nail tip – Choose a warm toned pink or purple, when you’ve got a subtle matte golden glow you can go OTT on the nail art!

Clothes – Lighter shades can accentuate tanned skin, like warm pale shades of brown, light blues, pinks and purples. We’re loving the Sienna Slinky Crossover Back Midi Dress – the perfect shape for showing off tanned limbs. Avoid gold tones and shades of tan as they blend in with golden skin.
