Jubilee Beauty Tips
Here at BrandAlley HQ weâ€™re getting into the Jubilee spirit with a whole host of patriotic beauty buys. From nails to lips, hair to eyelashes, Union Jack fever has taken over the country and weâ€™re loving the look. Our particular favourite is the Union Jack nails as itâ€™s punchy without being too in-your-face. But if ever there was a time to jump on the Great British bandwagon, now is it.
Check out this gorgeous, vibrant nail art we found sporting the Union Jack. Models Own have a fab range of nail varnishes including glitters and nail art pens which make designs like this a doddle, and theyâ€™re value for money too with prices ranging from Â£6 to Â£20 for sets and pens.
But if you arenâ€™t gifted with a steady hand, and the thought of getting fiddly with nail art isnâ€™t for you, donâ€™t worry as weâ€™ve found a great alternative: Nail wraps. Theyâ€™re the quick and easy alternative for girls with a love of the finer things, but who donâ€™t have time to pop to get a mani. All you have to do is cut them to size, place on the nail and apply heat. The wraps mould to the nails and stay in place for up to a week. Check them out here: Naildelights
Itâ€™s not all nailsÂ that are going Jubilee mad. Batiste have brought out a limited edition British themed dry shampoo for Â£2.99 to keep hair fresh during the party weekend! Vaseline have released a rather gorgeousÂ pouch containing a tin of Vaseline rosy lips for a pink tint that lets you get patriotic about your pout for Â£3.99. And if you want to go all out then the must have buy for just Â£10.50 is the union jack lip temporary appliques from Violent Lips. They will stay on for the whole evening as you party away with a smooth feel and glossy finish. Theyâ€™re easy to apply to lips of all shapes and sizes.Â Just as with nail wraps, you need to cut the lip art to size and apply to the lips. Never one to shy away from quirky fashion, Jessie J rocked out hers on The Voice. Tangle Teezer have released a special collectable Jubilee â€˜Cool Britannia compact stylerâ€™ for just Â£13.99. Itâ€™s bound to turn even the most unruly hair into a crowning glory.
And for those of you who love the weird and wonderful, why not make an even bolder statement with Union Jack print contact lenses from Eyes Bright? Theyâ€™re sure to be a conversation starter and will show your patriotic soul. After all, they say the eyes are the doorways to the soul. But if putting things in your eyes isnâ€™t for you, what aboutÂ the fab creations from Shu Uemura.Â Their Jubilee lashes are sure to set hearts aflutter and frame your eyes (with or without the contact lenses) beautifully for Â£50 (theyâ€™re hand-made too!).
With all these fab beauty ideas, youâ€™re bound to stand out from the crowd at street parties and BBQâ€™s over the weekend.Â Be sure you send us a photo of you beautified the Jubilee way as weâ€™d love to see your looks – us Brits know how to rock a patriotic look and celebrate the occasion in style!
