It doesn’t matter what decade you’re born in, you can always look back at the past for some fun, hair inspo! We love the classic Bardot fringe. It’s fun, it’s wispy and romantic! It frames your face too so if you’re conscious about your face shape you can create an illusion. Up or down, this look is a great go-to from summer days to nights!

Care for your Hair this Summer!


We all know it is extremely important to wear SPF ..all the time, not just in hot weather..(of course!) so why neglect your hair when your sunning yourself this summer?

Just like our skin, our hair can suffer extreme damage from the sun’s UV rays especially when battling other aggressions like salt water, chlorinated water and the usual 100 times you run your straighteners over that one piece at the front so it sits just how you like it!

Get Ahead of the Trends This Spring!


 

In this gloomy weather we’ve been having, let’s take our minds away to something brighter and cover the Spring ’18 forecast while we’re waiting for this year’s flowers to bloom.

The catwalks for Spring are giving us a huge variety of hair styles to choose from – a look for every mood! We have seen everything from big, beautiful curls to the sleek and elegant styles which never go out of date. We’re seriously spoiled for choice this season – no boring hairstyles here!

First up, we’re getting lots of major throwback vibes with the comeback of some accessories that won’t go unnoticed!

We are in lovee with the styling of the large detailed barrettes which we saw on the runways of Versace and Simone Rocha. These bold gold statement pieces and more delicate details of pearling and studs will bring a new life to your look when styled with a sleek middle or side parting. Or bring some femininity to your wild side – taming curls with pearls.

Sleek braids are everywhere this Spring, intricate detailing that will blow you away will get you ready for the festival season or a night at the Opera. These versatile braids will keep chic a word that’s pinned to your radar for months on end!

Skin in In!

Skin is in

This summer, it’s time to love the skin you’re in!

It’s 2018 and we want to go back to basics! Ditch the full coverage make-up and heavy baking, skin is in!

Make up artists to the stars and our top make-up artist, Becky Keane, shares her secrets to achieving this summer’s must have look.

Skin

For the perfect sun-kissed, dewy look, Becky suggests using a good illumination under foundation. This will keep your skin hydrated and looking glowy under any foundation. You don’t have to go abroad to rock this sun-kissed glow.

Becky’s Pick:

dbFACE Illuminating Lotion in “Moviestar” €32

Brows

It’s time to move on from the harsh, over-defined “Instagram” brow and welcome the natural and fluffy brows with open arms! Throw away the tweezers and let it grow how nature intended! A less defined brow, natural is this summer’s go-to look.

Becky’s Pick:

dbFACE Clear brow setting gel, this product will let you set your natural brows. Easy and hassle-free!

Eyes

No one wants to spend ages blending your eye shadows only for it to crease and melt off under the sun. Keep it basic in less the time this summer, a wash of colour on the eyes for a fresh youthful look is easy to achieve with a single shimmer shade.

Becky’s Pick:

dbFACE Eyelights in ‘Lava’ (€16) is a sheer high shine loose pigment that gives the perfect sun-kissed glow.

Lips

Keep it simple for summer and go back to the basics. Opt for a super intense gloss for an effortless pout.

Becky’s Pick: 

dbFACE Super Nectar Gloss €18

 

Finish off your golden hour skin glow by adding some dbFACE “Fake it” Illuminated Lotion on your shoulders, collarbone and chest for the perfect sun-kissed glow without catching a flight!
