Oliva Bowen Buckland’s Beauty Game Changer
It’s the beauty tool that’s revolutionising everyday makeup regimes. The Makeup Hand Palette (£15, www.makeupbox-ldn.co.uk) is allowing users to custom make their own flawless products and shades, and reality star and beauty fanatic Olivia, hails its practicality by effortlessly sliding the 100% acrylic palette onto her hand as she blends two chosen formulas to perfect her makeup base. Giving it her stamp of approval, she goes on to explain,
“ I mix my foundations, so I hate getting it all on my hand and it goes on my clothes, and it’s just a bit of a nightmare. So, this cute little contraption here – you just pop on two foundation shades, you can use it for brow products or anything really that you don’t want to stain your hand, it’s really, really useful!”
“(It) makes my life a hell of a lot easier”
Other benefits include:
Its convenient size and wipe-clean usability, makes this the ideal on-the-go beauty tool for those applying makeup on public transport who want to prevent cross contamination or stains from spreading
Can’t find your shade on the shelf, the hand palette offers countless opportunities for beauty addicts to tailor any step of their makeup routine – whether it be lipsticks, eyeshadows, serums, self-tan
Instead of endless scrubbing, you can reuse the hand palette by simply wiping off residue with a damp cloth and a mild soap solution
Megan Barton Hanson’s beauty essential
Megan Barton Hanson has hailed the Morning Glamour Silk Pillowcase (£12.99, Makeupbox-ldn.co.uk) a “game-changer.”
Megan says “Keeping my hair frizz-free and healthy is super important to me, and with my Morning Glamour Satin Pillowcase from @makeupboxldn_ I’m getting my best beauty sleep. The satin stops my hair from getting damaged in my sleep, plus it keeps my sleep wrinkles at bay – absolute game changer.”
Silk Pillowcases have a vast variety of benefits and are becoming increasingly popular with consumers. They help to keep skin clear and prevent breakouts, as they provide a gentle, smooth surface that does not dry the skin out. The smooth surface also helps to reduce friction in the hair as it helps to eliminate hair loss, reduces breakage and prevents snagging which can lead to the static, frizzy look. The non-absorbent qualities of satin mean that any oils applied to the skin at night are retained in the skin and not transferred and helps the hair to retain moisture and prevent it from becoming dry and brittle.
Other benefits include:
Lessening Allergies – Morning Glamour pillowcases are absent of any irritating chemicals and the natural substances help to keep allergies in the atmosphere.
Non-absorbent (meaning you can make the most of favourite night cream)
Reduces heat from hot flushes
