Here at Just Beautifully, we’re massive fans of a bright, bold and oh-so-dramatic red lipstick. Rather than reserve one of make-ups most striking looks to the festive season, we believe a scarlet pout is one of the simplest ways to brighten your complexion, reveal your inner vamp and show who’s the boss!

The beauty head honchos must have heard our message; because after a flurry of appearances on the Spring/Summer 2012 catwalk at Jean Paul Gaultier, House of Holland and Christian Dior as well as endorsements by A-listers including  Madonna, Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian – red lipstick looks set to be one of Spring’s biggest beauty trends.

If you’re feeling inspired, keep these simple guidelines in mind when seeing red:

– Create the perfect canvas for red lipstick by prepping with an exfoliator, old toothbrush or flannel until completely soft.

– Smoothe your lips with a lip balm like Carmex Classic Moisturising Lip Balm, £1.95 for a soft and plumped up finish.

– Team your lipstick with a matching liner to avoid bleeding and extend staying power.

– When choosing your perfect shade of lipstick look for cool, blue shades like Barry M Cosmetics Lip Paint Lipstick, Pillar Box Red, £4.10 if you have fair skin, whilst warm, orange tones like Bodyography Aloe Vera Durable Pigment Lipstick, Ruby Glitz Red, £4.96 work well on olive or dark complexions.

– Make your lips your main feature by teaming with sophisticated, minimal make-up. Think groomed brows, a slick of mascara and fresh looking base.

– Always team red lipstick with lots of confidence and a great smile!

– Lastly, shop just for the perfect  shade of rouge whatever your budget or your complexion.

A smash hit all over the world, loved by celebrities and one of the first brands of it’s kind- the wait is finally over for curly haired lovelies as Mixed Chicks launches at Just Beautifully.

Launched in 2004 by best friends and beauty pioneers, Kim Etheredge and Wendy Levy; Mixed Chicks was born out of the the pairs frustrations at being unable to find products which catered for the curly manes they had inherited from their mixture of Black, Irish and Jewish parents.

After years of scouring both Afro and European hair care aisles, the Mixed Chicks founders knew they could do better than so many of the products available on the market which were loaded with harsh, drying alcohol and heavy, greasy oil (major curl foes). The pair set about creating a single product that was able to care for and define curls with  a complete balance of natural ingredients. After lots of tweaking of formulas, Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner- a lightweight, curl defining formula that creates soft, fizz-free curls was born.

Initially created as a personal project to replace the hopeless combination of products Kim and Wendy had spent years using to try and tame their locks; the first handful of products grew into a complete range of shampoos, conditioners and styling products as friends and family quickly becomes fans and encouraged the girls to spread the Mixed Chicks message. Thanks to high profile fans of the brand such as actress Halle Berry as well as internet blogs and forums going into overdrive with talk of the new beauty brand, Mixed Chicks soon became a phenomenon amongst thousands of mixed race women, men and children around the world.

Whether you’re a glorious combination of Black, White, Asian, Latin or Mediterranean, it’s time to join the multi-cultural movement with one of the first hair ranges to truly understand your hair type.  Here’s a rundown of the Mixed Chicks hero products you can find at Just Beautifully to help transform your locks:

‘Mysterious Girl’ chart-topper, reality TV star and owner of one hell of a chiseled torso, Peter Andre has created a beauty match made in heaven by becoming the new face and body (let’s not forget that body) of Fake Bake’s latest self-tanning product. The gradual tanning product features masculine packaging and an oil-free formula which is designed specifically for the male market.

Created to make it easier for men to use fake tan as part of their grooming regime, Fake Bake ‘Sport Daily Tan’ is a simple and safe way for guys to cheat a bronzed appearance, and leaves skin feeling great with its hydrating ingredient list- which just like for girls, boosts appearance and mood according to Peter who revealed at the launch:

“When I am tanned and in shape I feel confident about my appearance, but when you have a busy active lifestyle, you need a product that you can use quickly and doesn’t streak or leave you with orange hands. Fake Bake Sport is perfect as I can slap it on and go.”

So apart from the constant caramel complexion and immaculately preened appearance that Peter sports all year round, what else was it that inspired Fake Bake to sign the singer and add to their popular Fake Bake Man Facial Tri-Kit Shaving and Bronzing kit, £20.75? “Peter was our first choice as he has a hectic schedule but still makes time to work out and take care of himself. We were over the moon when Peter agreed to work with Fake Bake and he has been involved from the word go. We are sure that Peter’s collaboration with Sport Daily Tan will make this product a great success.”

At Just Beautifully H.Q, Peter Andre becoming the new face of Fake Bake has raised some very important questions:

1.  Why is it so unfair that age seems to make some men look hotter?

2. Do we prefer Peter’s Abs now or back in the Mysterious Girl video?

3.  When it comes to male grooming do guys look better rugged or preened?

What are you thought’s on male grooming and Fake Bake’s latest signing? Join the debate on our Facebook page now…

The brighter, warmer days and carefree vibes of spring means that lightening layers doesn’t apply just to your clothes, but to your wardrobe too.
