We're officially declaring that Sunday mornings are for watching YouTube Beauty videos. It's not even a guilty secret anymore! Its a fun way to ease into the last day of the weekend and is enhanced infinitely when followed by a long brunch. If you're new to this or think that Youtube beauty is for the very young, fear no more. Not only are YouTube beauty videos becoming much more popular amongst grown ups but we will vet and introduce you to a new channel every Sunday. We will also add in a couple of beauty tips along the way. So, welcome to the first ever of our weekly beauty digests or 'SUNDAY VIBES'.
YouTube Beauty Channel To Check Out
We're proud to feature Nadia Kour as our first YouTuber. This biomedical scientist turned makeup artist presents a wide range of fun makeup tutorials. As a Vegan, she only uses cruelty free makeup and creates high femme looks inspired by glam rock, disco and her middle eastern heritage. There are also many celebrity inspired looks (Beyonce super bowl makeup is a must) and professional beauty hacks. Nadia's passion and relaxed delivery transpires into easy to follow tutorials.
Skincare Tip To Try
Whilst chilling to YouTube beauty tutorials we definitely recommend giving yourself a little facial. Since winter is almost here, try to revive dull and dry skin with an enzymatic mask. Use a a bit of mashed up papaya as an exfoliating face mask (leave for 10-15 minutes then wipe and wash face). This will leave your skin fresh and glowing. Follow up with a very hydrating moisturiser.
Makeup Technique To Practise
A good way to beat that sallow winter skin is with dewy looking skin. This will make you look really fresh and glowing (like no one's told your that summer is over). Check out our dewy skin tutorial for flawless makeup.
Beauty Guide To Read
If you're thinking of giving your skin a bit of a work up before christmas but not sure what. Bespoke skin treatments like collagen induction therapy and chemical peels are a good place to start. They can be used alone or in combination to treat a range of skin concerns include sun damage, uneven pigmentation, wrinkles and acne. Winter is also a good time to work on your skin in order to resurface it, stimulate collagen and nourish it. This will provide you with smoother, younger and glowing skin during the dreary months and into Spring. Read our guide on both these treatments or visit our treatment pages for more information.
Sneak Peek At The Coming Week In Beauty
Big change is a coming. We're filming our first set of videos from our own YouTube channel this weekend. Watch this space next week for the first uploads. Also we are super excited to be introducing our 'INTERVIEW WITH...' section. This is a a regular series of interviews with young ambitious women who rising stars in their respective careers and disrupting status quo on their way up. We chat work, life and beauty with them. To kick things off we've interviewed our CEO & Founder, Dr Amel Ibrahim on surgery, academia, entrepreneurship and life outside work. The Interview goes up next week.
We hope you've enjoyed our first edition of Sunday vibes and feel inspired to indulge in the world of beauty. So with that, we will leave you to visit YouTube, brew some tea/coffee and smash up that Papaya.
