The Aussie Celebs Nailing Current Hair Trends

Our favourite Aussie celebs are killing it in Hollywood, not only in their latest blockbusters, but on the red carpet too with these on-trend hair looks:

Margot Robbie

Braids

Margot’s celebrity status is quickly climbing in Hollywood, featuring in numerous blockbusters this year. She’s also topping the beauty stakes, particularly with these chic braids at her latest movie premiere.

Get Margot’s braided look:

Apply O&M Style Guru through the hair before blow-drying and braiding. This will increase softness and shine and reduce flyaways. Get an even braid by sectioning the hair with a comb, like ghd’s Tail Comb. Add some soft, natural-looking waves to the rest of your hair with the Cloud Nine C9 Wand.

 

Rose Byrne

Half Up, Half Down

She’s well and truly made her mark in Hollywood, appearing in much-loved comedies like Bridesmaids and Neighbours 2, but Rose Byrne also stuns on the red carpet. We love this half-up, half-down look Rose has got going on.

Get Rose’s half-up, half-down look:

Apply a heat protectant spray to the hair, like ghd Heat Protect Spray, before curling the hair with BaByliss PRO Dreamer Titanium 32mm Ceramic Curling Tong. Brush out the curls with evo pete ionic paddle brush, and secure the top half of your hair in a high ponytail. Finish with Kevin.Murphy Session.Spray.

 

Cate Blanchett

Beachy Waves

We’re all about natural, beach waves right now. It’s an easy, go-to hairstyle that looks super stylish on any hair type. Cate Blanchett has perfectly executed this look, which works perfectly with her blonde crop.

Get Cate’s wavy look:

Start by spitzing a heat protectant spray over the hair. Apply Sachajuan Ocean Mist to half blow-dried hair and scrunch hair with your hands. Gently dry off the hair scrunching as you go. If it’s not quite wavy enough, add some more texture with ghd curve tongs creative curl wand.

Candle Care Tips You Need To Know

Who doesn’t love candles? You can never have too many, right? To make sure you’re getting the most out of your collection of candles at home, Circa Home have helped us put together a guide to candle care:

circahome3

Circa Home‘s Tips:

One

Keep wicks trimmed to 7mm, this will prevent soot from forming on the glass vessel. If the glass does get sooty, wipe clean with a dry paper towel when the candle is extinguished.

Two

Burning times can affect the longevity of your candle. Don’t burn any 260g candles for less than 1 hour or more than 4 hours at a time. Don’t burn 165g and 60g candles for less than 30 minutes or more than 2 hours at a time.

Three

Don’t use the vessel lid to extinguish your candle. Always use a candle snuffer to properly extinguish candles, or blow gently and steadily directly onto the flame.

Four

To ensure even burning, always light all wicks in candles with multiple wicks.

Five

Stop burning a candle when 13mm of unmelted wax remains at the bottom of the vessel, and always place candles on a heat-proof surface.

circahome2

Safety checklist:

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Ensure candles are out of reach of children, pets & flammable materials.

Never move a burning candle, the glass vessels can become hot. The flame of the candle should never come in contact with the side of the glass vessel.

Avoid placing candles in drafty areas, near open windows, air ducts or fans.

Never introduce liquids or foreign objects into candle and keep it free of wick trimmings, matches and any flammable materials.

Rihanna’s Edgy Beauty Looks You Can Do Too

RiRi is a major style and beauty icon –  she can do no wrong. Regardless of what look she goes for, Rihanna seems to nail it every single time, from girl-next-door to edgy glam. We’ve got some insider professional tips on how you can achieve RiRi’s looks yourself:

Girl Next Door

Simple, elegant and stylish. This girl-next-door beauty look is super easy to recreate yourself. To emulate RiRi’s soft, dewy skin, opt for BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation mixed with a pump of BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector for a natural glow. Softly define your brows with Benefit Instant Eyebrow Pencil and give them an instant lift with Benefit High Brow GLOW Brow Lifting Pencil. Create a very simple wing with Estée Lauder Little Black Liner, and enhance your eyes with Artémes mink lashes.

 

All Class

Classy, chic and feminine. This is a different type of beauty look for Rihanna, but the soft pink is definitely agreeing with her beautiful skin tone. Use Bobbi Brown Instant Pretty Eye Palette to achieve Rihanna’s pink-toned lids, and Inika Mineral Lip Liner with Clinique Lip Pop in Sugar Pop to give your lips soft definition and tint. Don’t go too overboard with your lashes, let your eyeshadow shine, use Blinc Smudgeproof Mascara.

 

Edgy Glam

We couldn’t ignore classic ‘bad gal’ RiRi’s look. This one is all about the dark eyes – don’t even try to take the focus elsewhere. You’ll need Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Graphite Shimmer ink – with this liquid eyeliner you’ll be able to create the very defined shape of this eye look. Dab theBalm shadyLady Powder Eye Shadow in Sexy Stacy over the gel eyeliner base for deeper pigment. Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Cocoa will give you that perfect nude finish to your lips.

 

Pop Of Colour

Those lips and lashes though! This orange lippy on Rihanna is absolutely stunning – if only all of us could pull off orange that well. If you think your complexion can handle the orange, use Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in Orange for lusciously smooth and hydrated lips with a pop of colour. Wow the crowd with full-on falsies like Gorgeous Cosmetics Madam Lash False Lashes.

Which celebrity brows to suit your face shape?

Whether you have a round, oval, square or heart-shaped face, we’ve investigated which brow shape will suit you based on some of our fave celebs. Stay tuned for the release of Benefit’s NEW amazing brow products in July!

Round Face: High Arches

Kirsten Dunst

Round faces often lack the definition of pronounced cheekbones and angular contours, so you can bring some definition to your face with the addition of highly arched brows.

Shop Benefit Brow Zings Brow Shaping Kit

browzings

Oval Face: Slightly Arched

Eva Mendes

The lucky people blessed with oval faces are likely to have well-proportioned features – slightly arched brows compliment oval faces nicely without being too overbearing and taking away attention from other features.

 Shop Benefit High Brow GLOW Brow Lifting Pencil

Square Face: Softly Rounded

Kiera Knighley

Square faces are characterised by a sharp, angular jaw line, so softly rounded brows are the best option to soften and feminise the facial shape.

Shop Benefit Speed Brow Quick-Set Brow Gel

speedbrow

Heart-Shaped Face: Manicured Brows

Scarlett Johansson

Heart-shaped faces commonly lack a defined jawline, and stronger cheek bones, so our attention is drawn to the upper half of the face. Most brow shapes are suitable on heart-shaped faces, but ensuring they’re well-manicured is a must – everybody’s eyes will be on your brows.
