Best New Beauty Buys!

Another week, another beauty blog! This week I am discussing my top 5 hen worthy beauty products. Choose from quick developing tans to fixing sprays that give your makeup over 8 hours wear!



1) Coco Brown 1 Hour Tan

If you’ve got so caught up in the hen party planning and preparation that you’ve realised at the last minute you’ve forgotten to apply your tan, then panic not. Traditional tanning formulas can take anywhere from 4 to 12 hours to develop but not Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan mousse (£7.99). Simply slather it on before the party and 60 minutes later it will develop into a deep golden hue

2) Crown Professional Makeup Brushes

If you plan on ditching the makeup artist come the wedding day, the hen party can be a great practice session to make sure you’re getting your look just right. One of the most important elements in makeup application is using the correct brushes- no finger tips here ladies! A high quality brush set is what will really set your makeup off and give you the wow factor. My makeup artist recommends Crown brushes for a really professional looking finish. A 23 piece set retails at £61.99.


3) Urban Decay Naked Palette

Glamming up for a hen party is a great excuse to experiment with dramatic eyes and it’s best to use highly pigmented shadows to get the most stunning effect. The eyeshadow palette that has all the beauty bloggers swooning at the moment is Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. At £37 it’s pricey but it does have 12 essential wear shades and a beauty award to it’s name so I like to think of it as an investment piece!

4) MUA Fixing Spray

Whether you’re off to sunnier climes or just off for a long night of dancing you’ll want your makeup to stay put. After all nobody enjoys perfecting their makeup for an hour only for it to fall off after two mojitos. That’s where fixing spray comes in. If you’ve never heard of it before it’s exactly as the name suggests. You simply spritz it over your your makeup to fix it in place all night long. My favourite fixing spray is MUA Pro-base (£5.00) which holds your makeup in place for over 8 hours.


5) Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance

Long weekends away or all night long parties can take their toll on even the most energetic hens. Get your glow back with Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance. (£4.99) Simply blend a little along the cheekbones to get your spark back.
