How-to: sweat less

  • Post a comment

Nobody likes being a sweaty Betty. Aside from feeling damp and uncomfortable, there’s also the constant worry of BO that comes along with it (and trust us, trying to ‘inconspicuously’ sniff your pits throughout the day is never a good look!).

Which is exactly why you need a deodorant that won’t let you down. A deodorant from a long-standing, trusted beauty brand. A deodorant that isn’t designed to simply smell good, but that’s also formulated with breakthrough technology to ensure that you really stay protected.

Oh, and we just so happen to know exactly which product fits this bill! It’s Dove Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant (long-standing: check. Trusted beauty brand: check). Formulated with clinical-strength wetness and odour protection, as well as body-responsive technology to combat excessive sweating and staining, it can protect your skin for up to 48-hours – even after showering! (Breakthrough technology: check!).

Plus, Dove Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant also contains ¼ moisturising cream to ensure your underarms stay nourished and irritation-free. Now that’s something to raise your arms and celebrate about!

Are you a sweaty Betty or are BO and perspiration not one of your main concerns?

Gallery: celebrity look we love – candy-coloured lips

  • Post a comment

As much as we love a classic red lip  (and really, we do love a red lip!), there’s a new lip hue in town that’s set our hearts all a-flutter.

Bright, candy-inspired hues have replaced fire-engine reds here at bh HQ (for now at least!), and we’re fairly certain that, if you’re also a bright lip lover, you’ll be itching to make the swap too.

And if you’re not the kind of girl to sport anything brighter than nude, we implore you to give this trend a whirl - from electric, neon and pastel pinks to luscious watermelons, there’s a shade to suit everyone. We swear!

Need a bit of candy-lipped inspiration? Look no further, coz this celebrity gallery is all the motivation you’ll need to get your hands on a perfectly pretty lippy….

Nail mash-ups: the metallic edition

  • Post a comment

I’ve changed. Yep, it’s not something noticeable like a sharp new haircut, or the arrival of a brilliant boy into my life (okay, maybe a little), but it’s something more than that. I’ve pushed my beauty borders, and I’m really loving the way it feels.

I know we spoke about nail mash-ups not long ago, but if I’m being honest I never thought my dalliance with two-toned digits would last more than a week or two. Normally I’m onto the next trend before my nails have even completely dried. But not this time. This time, I’m coming up with ways to re-invent this trend, so I can sport it on my talons for even longer.

Introducing nail mash-ups: the metallic edition. This is much like the original nail mash-ups, you know the one where we used a nail stickers and polish combination? Only this time you’re using two polishes – a pastel and a metallic (or a variation of the two).

Tips to ace this look:

- Stick with interesting combinations. Either a pastel and metallic polish in the same (or similar) shade, like the lilac version above – or a duo with a contrast, like the pale pink/stone shade paired with a gold shade on the ring finger, like the version on the right.

- Using either a metallic or glitter shade on your ring finger will work well, you can also use it on your thumb too, if you like.

- Be sure to coat with a super shiny top coat for added gleam and a long-lasting effect!


Used in this look:

ORLY Nail Lacquer

Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish

Ulta3 Nail Polish


Could you go back to just regularly painted nails now?

This look is very pretty! It is great if you have more than one new colour that you want to wear, it makes the choosing a lot easier! Hehe

How-to: work your mug shot

  • Post a comment

With Amanda Bynes being the latest celeb to rock the orange jumpsuit (albeit just briefly) for her DUI charge, we thought it high time we showcased the best (and worst) celebrity mug shots of all time.

You know who they are, they’ve been named and shamed – the Hollywood heavyweights that have been caught red-handed doing the wrong thing and have had their indiscretions forever immortalised in a photo. 

Probably one of the least-flattering shots a celebrity will ever have to pose for, we think Amanda Bynes – with her on-trend pink-tinted locks – pulls off 'quite a pretty mug shot.' Considering these police-shots are sans airbrushing and professional styling and all… Well, as far as mug shots go.

Tips for taking an awesome mug shot:

  • - Ensure you have a powder compact in your pocket (blotchy skin just doesn’t make for a pretty picture, right Mischa?)
  • - For goodness sake, make sure you’re up to date with getting your roots coloured, or fear looking even guiltier (Heather and Mischa I’m talking to you!)
  • - Have a bobby pin handy, as a heavy side-swept fringe can make you seem sort of sneaky and a little guilty, eh Nicole?
  • - Keep your head high and shoulders straight, so you don’t end up looking like a deer caught in headlights, a la Hugh Grant.
  • - Sport a pretty pink gloss and work the smirk, just like Paris.
  • - Keep a hairbrush in your bag, obviously. Heather and Mischa – that goes out to you two again!


Check out the other celebrities that we fear weren’t so ready for their close-up…

I don't think we should be glamourising these girls. It's a shame that these are the women that many impressionable girls love and iconise. There are so many other good doers that are just as beautiful who aren't making a mess of their lives. Let's not forget that when you drive drunk or under the influence of some drug you are endangering everyones lives around you. Not just your own.

I used to think Amanda Bynes was a really sweet and pretty girl but she doesn't look so great in this shot. I think Lindsay is the guiltiest she doesn't even seem to care kind of looks like she thinks its funny. Same with Nicole Ritchie but at least she has cleaned her act up now.
