At GlamR this week we decided to do a Disney inspired look From the new film Frozen!
All of us girls have been saying how amazing the makeup is in the film and Maria thought she would recreate the look of Anna.
Also we have added some Swarovski crystals, because no GlamR makeup look can be complete without a bit of sparkle.

Moroccan Oil Treatment

Rediscover your shine this winter.
During the winter months, hair goes through its fair share of problems as we increase the use of our beloved flat irons and hair dryers and central heating doesn't help either!

This is where MoroccanOil Treatment comes in handy...

MoroccanOil is a dry treatment oil for the hair, which absorbs instantly and doesn't leave your hair feeling or looking greasy. There is also a Light MoroccanOil which is amazing for blonde hair!

It is a rich dry oil treatment, so a little goes a long way, therefore a bottle will last you at least 6months+ (100ml bottle)! You will definitely notice a difference using this product.
The GlamR girls love using this MoroccanOil for many reasons:

  • A great 'de-tangler'
  • Leaves hair feeling soft and silky
  • Brilliant long term condtioning treatment
  • Helps prevent split ends 
  • Great for dry hair
  • Leaves hair looking healthy with a natural shine
 You can certainly see why it's a very popular product!

100ml £30.50

Or you can try trail size £12.50

So it will come as no surprise that we can really see why there has been so much hype about it! After all in some cases (such as this) you do only get what you pay for! The full size bottle has jumped straight to the top of our Beauty lists and Maria's kit bag ready to use on shoots.

What are your thoughts on MoroccanOil? Us GlamR girls love it!

                  LOVE YOUR LASH

Just been on a course for LVL Training and  i was given Max2 Eyelash tonic Gold to help with the strenth of my lash as i'am working on them all the time and thay need a bit of TLC,i was a bit sceptaltial on eyelash tonic as i bought one before from a High end store in London for about £85 and I noticed some diffrence but not a lot.
But i'am in love with this product Max2 i have been using this for 3 weeks now and my lashs feel and look so much longer


Max2 Lash Tonic Essence Gold is made from natural herbs and is an alternative to more harshly derived chemical substances found in other products designed to enhance the growth of eyelashes.

How it works: (Product description found on the Internet)
"This tonic conditioner for eyelashes and eyebrows promotes healthy hair by stimulating blood circulation and providing nutrients to hair follicles. Made entirely of fruit, herbal and botanical extracts, this product has shown to bring definite results after 5 weeks of consistent use. The ingredients have been rigorously tested by a leading Asian Herbal Testing Lab at a top university in South Korea. For those who are interested and aware of the benefits of holistic (natural) approach to body care, the ingredients in this product have traditionally been known in Asia to contain healing and hair regeneration properties. This is a complete unique herbal formula for treatment of eyelash growth, is ideal for individuals suffering from thin, brittle eyelashes. Go from sparse to fuller looking eyelashes in just 4-8 weeks. With continual use, eyelashes will become thicker and longer."
Can be used with or without lash extensions.
