When you are Blonde and can’t get your roots done, you need a quick fix. Noticed your blonde turning yellow or brassy? Fix it with TIGI Catwalk Fashionista Shampoo and Conditioner, which brightens your blonde, boosts cool tones and reduces brassy tones. Use once/ twice a week for a brightened blonde or use each day/ leave on longer to give you an ashy hue. These are colour safe and the conditioner helps protect the hair from heat damage.
Missing your highlights? Why no try applying them temporarily with taupe/ nude eye shadow such as the Elizabeth Arden Brow Powder in Soft Blonde or the Clarins Mineral Eyeshadow in 05 Lingerie. You can achieve the look of natural highlights through dark roots by applying eye shadow where your highlights should be (obviously this washes out). For Brunettes, you can touch up your roots with a deeper brown eye shadow such as Clarins Mineral Eye Shadow in 13, Dark Chocolate.
Give yourself an at-home mani using our range of nail tools. You can file, nip and clip until your nails are prepped and ready for polish. If you like stick on nails, we’ve got nail tips for acrylic extensions or stick on false nails and nail glue. If UV gel is more your style, check out our range of gel nail varnish, more arriving soon.
Missing your lash tech? You can create a similar look at home using individual lashes and duo lash glue. Just make sure you use various lengths to get that graduated look. If you prefer a fluffy strip lash, try these gorgeous Kiss Ever EZ False Lashes multi-pack with Duo Lash Glue which should last you through this lockdown. These come with a handy strip lash applicator for those of you that are new to applying lashes yourself.
Tan Top Up
Follows these steps for a mistake-proof at home tanning routine. You must exfoliate your entire body before applying any tan, paying particular attention to the knees, elbows, underarms, ankles, feet and hands. We love using the Sunkissed Tan Eraser Exfoliating Mitt which doubles up as a tan eraser when you need to get that tan off and re apply. If you like a faster tan, use one of our tanning mousses. The Sunkissed Self Tan Mousse Dark will give you a 'just stepped off the plane' glow.
Apply using our Sunkissed double-sided Tan Mitt to prevent any leakages on the back of your hand (you’ll need a helper to do your back unless you put your tan mitt onto a back scrubber and apply using a mirror. This tan has a guide colour so as long as all skin is covered, you’ll be safe no matter how messy the application may look. Apply all over, when you’ve done your body blend the excess over the face, hands and feet. Leave on for six to eight hours (or sleep in it) for maximum colour or leave on for less time to achieve lighter results. Rinse off after the development time for a gorgeous even tan.
We like Sunkissed because the formula is 95% natural and free from harmful ingredients such as parabens, silicones and sulphates. They are also Vegan and cruelty-free. The packaging is 100% recyclable and 100% sustainable.
