Beauty Tips from the GP Guru

Every girl needs a bit of a helping hand to stay fabulous, and having spent a large chunk of my career gathering beauty secrets, I thought I’d pass on some of my nuggets of wisdom (just between us gingers, mind)! Shhhhhhhhhh!


Sleepy Eyes

So tell me: do you ever wake up with tired, puffy eyes? Never fear! Simply dab on some Aloe Vera gel under your eyes for temporary firming!


Lay the foundations

A trick that not too many people know about is that concealer should alwaysalwaysalways follow foundation. If you put it on first and then blend on the foundation, you’ll erase all that camouflage work! Just remember that makeup is like construction work, lay the foundation first then add finishing touches with concealer. Perfect!


Smooth operator

As we all know, ginger hair is certainly not immune to pesky fly-aways but I have top secret tip for you: your laundry room has the answer! It may sound bizarre, but run a dry sheet over your hair for smoother than smooth results!


Tweeze it, baby

The best time to tweeze brows is right after a shower! The warm water opens your pores and makes hair removal easier and less painful! And let’s face it, we could all do with this nifty trick in our lives, what with redheads’ lower pain thresholds!

Luscious Lashes

For lashes that will stay luscious all day long, use two types of mascara; first start with a lengthening formula and then finish off with a volumising brand for the best of both worlds! (No one said it was going to be easy…)
