Always on the hunt for cool Things.we popped into missguided http://www.missguided.co.uk

A great fashion brand,  whom i have no doubt you all know and shop at.
I really enjoyed the collections into sections and sports luxe is still going strong , I’m a big fan, a jacket very similar in style to the Victoria Beckham one,  which i was utterly obsessed by. Missguided  had there version in a grey marl. Err hello  ill be needing that.
” missguided quote
It’s game on with sports -inspired head -to-toe-woah looks, or if you minimalist cool is more your thing, layer up with simple shapes and relaxed tailored styles ”

I’m always very interested when it comes to learning more about the beauty industry,  how ever long you’ve been in it,  there is always a new facial,  technology, technique to be learnt or had.

Before the events,  Nadia and I popped to the  Rodial bar at Harvey Nics to have a little make over,  Rodial as you may know,if you follow me regularly is a fantastic Cosmetic brand,  they were having a event,  looked after by the amazing Media Hubb team.
Known for the sculpt look ,after recently launching the Make up line, to along side their  superjammed of goodness creams/lotions.

So i was very kindly invited,by the gorgeous girls at media hubb to go to Harley Street clinic,  to have  a facial, not only that, but the facailst would be Top Celebrity Favourite Elizabeth Caroline.
How could I possibly turn that down.

Elizabeth is known for her incredible treatments and will a fabulous list of guests you can see why. Even on the day i attended. EC had a few other celebs popping in.

So to the facial.
My skin has been somewhat Lack luster and very dry. Thank you winter. Something moat of us, are going through.
So during my treatment i was cleansed to have my skin ready for the facial it’s self.
The head of the instrument that was used for the treatment had very fine needles,  which i couldn’t feel, nothing painful what so ever.  But i did sneeze,  while it was worked over my forehead,  it tickled,  so if your worried about pain,  this fabulous treatment has none. It also has
No down time.
So you dont need to hide away, like some treatments .you can have this treatment 48 hours before a big event. i Left  3 opps as I  Attended  The  Play ” my night with reg” red carpet.
I recommend waiting as your skin will be open and you don’t want to get any dirt in.

Now the day after,  using the at Home aftercare, ( dermatude pigment equalizer facial serum/cream) my skin no longer feels tight and is looking refreshed and I do believe over the next few days, it will get even  better.

This treatments advantages are.
.no anesthesia required
.recovery time within a few hours
.You can put your make up back on after  24 hours
.immediate visible results
.short treatment time  (30mins ish)
. Painless
HERE COMES THE SCIENCE
“Meta therapy involves invisible micro-perforations in the skin in a painless way.as a result the skin shifts it’s natural repair mechanism into high gear and start producing  collagen and elastin to repair the micro-perforations ”

100% natural way to give life back to your skin.  Recommend in courses for full effects, but if in need of a skin pick me up. Try it Out.

Ok So New Year , and every one has their sales on. But do you need the 9th white vest or Fugly looking shoes, just because there a pound  Err NO
Step away from the tut

Ok so not everyone has  a Chanel budget, I’m not saying  don’t buy in the sales,  because like most i Do too.
I’m  saying  buy what you need, buy classic Not trend lead, as let’s be honest,  its in the sale as it’s  last season.
If your  clever you can  get some really  fabulous things at a good price. I was obsessed with a Victoria Beckham shirt, but quite a chunk  full price,  simple white but utter perfection in the cut. Item went into the  Sales, snapped it up and its now a forever piece.
I can bring it out over and over,  styled differently and now one will be like
” oh he’s wearing  that AGAIN”
Unlike if you buy  a one season slogan tee or print  that dates to quickly .
I talk about  being classic a lot in articles and videos.
But it really does pay off , chic is  just  always  perfect.
Now
So we all want to be in fashion  and look current,  so how to buy into the new looks
What trends are in

Remember not all trends suit everyone,  don’t worry  be the best  you x.

Red
It’s  back in a big way,


So it’s well into #lcm, London collections men, for it’s full title.
So all the dapper chaps and fashionista guys and girlie are pottering around , The  Hospital Club  (super chic destination in Covent Garden ). The BFC space and other glam locations and one  Ex sex Shop, touch odd but  a lovely  collection.

So one’s skin needs looking after,  the weather,  booze and long days will have it’s tole.
So  i came across a fantastic British Brand, for male skin care.
EleMENTs
Formulated especially for male skin, this beautifully fresh scented range,  is not only fabulously packaged, it has great effect on one’s skin.

The instant “wake me up” fresh smell, is stunning,  i smell lemomgrass and botanical scents
4 product’s currently in the range  are as follows.

Scrub
Using  jojoba beads to smooth,  deeply clean and exfoliate with being harsh.

SHAVE
This cream helps to reduce the nasty effects of Razor burn, quoted as a “first aid defence ”

Wash
A facial wash,  which  gently  cleanses and tone  the skin in one  go, soothing and  balancing,  jam packed with  natural  derived Oils, it’s a treat for your  mush.

Moisture
I  must say, my  favourite of the line,  the smell is intensely fresh and revitalising.  Nautral antioxidants and Soya oil,  tackle ones fine lines,  to help  encourage healing and  regeneration of new skin. Which helps the aging process.
I’m  a big fan  as the range is based  fairly locally to  me, with bright and modern style  packing but with organic aspects.

Vegetarian society approved
And totally cruelty free

Pun fully intended. Give it a glow/go.
Now we’re into a new year and, well let’s say we’ve all taken a battering, be it booze,late nights  or indeed the Great British weather or for overseas readers , cold,bitter winds.

So how  do we go about,  making  ourselves look,  polished  and the inner Jlo glow?  To coin a phrase.

Well i have  a few beauty tricks up my tailored sleeve, to help with such a common problem.  A mix of  items most  at a healthy price point,  well let’s be fair, we’ve all spent a small countries income on gifts  over the  festive  season,  so  to treat ourselves without quilt  is  perfect. So on my youtube channel i did a demo Using  The  products, So  do feel free to have a WATCH
Lewis -duncan weedon

For  those whom like a read and the science bit  , here  we go.

The best thing is Not to over load the skin, as it can then look caked and flaky,  which isn’t a desired  look. Many  face washes have a “wake me up” effect such  as “clean &clear’s” morning energy,  shine control  daily wash.
It contains lemongrass and  fruit extract , to awaken the skin,  leaving  it clear.

Now to hydrate,  this really is Key during the winter,  and we tend to need more effective ingredients, 
Pixi  Glow tonic
Is not Only a Cult Product but the main  reason,  i thought to write this article.
It gently exfoliates the skin, leaving a nautral glow, after  getting the dead skin cells off. It soothes and nourishes the skin with botanical extracts, and is alcohol free. So No drying  aspect   EERR hello  miracle toner.
I’ve actually used a few of the Pixi beauty range,within this article /my routine. Their  primer has  a sutble gold/pearl  glow  to the  skin , which reminds me of a Becca skin  perfector, which i use a LOT in pearl,  more of the  higher end but both  are fab.  i mix Either or in This Case, the pixi Into
My  new obsession  the Pixi H2O skintint, i use shade 1 cream  (as reference ). This  super hydrating tinted cream, gives  perfect coverage, without  being cakey or “made up”, great on guys as doesn’t show on  the skin, your left  nourished  and healthy  the mix of  the two products is key.

Now I  did mention moisturising, so  back to this step, in winter im a big  fab of creme da la mer,  but lets be honest; its out of most  budgets,  so my favourite  gel moisturiser is
GARNIER
SKIN NAUTRALS
MOISTURE MATCH.
For  dull skin, the texture soaks beautifully into  my skin,  helping soften and relieve and discomfort from  dryness, super affordable and really great.
Ok so make up tips, to fake  perfect skin. Now don’t go to crazy with  a highlighter, or you will have Moon face and honey  that aint cute.
My current  fav sutble highlighter, is a new product, from  the recent launch of Rodial , make up /contour range.  I’m in shade 1.
Dust this powder, gently under the brow bone, the water/tearduc,  across the  top of your cheek bones and down the centre of the nose if  needed,  leaves a gentle glow and awake look to the eyes , which is a must,  if eyes  look dull. Try a eyebrow, that helps  beong sparkle /whitening to the eye.such as the boots one.
Also i recommend  the makeup revolution highlighter  for a more budget friendly idea.

Now  your a glowing with  glamour and life,  hydrate from within  , water kids  its super  important and let’s be honest,  we never really drink enough. Im a coffee fend and to everyone coffee you  need 3glasses of water  to balance out. Ouch :/

There are gels you can  add to water  to help. Such  as skinade. They  are designed to help  add collagen or extra  vitamins to your organs.  Doing you  good, more  long  term for results but great non  the less.
Blusher,  its very important , adding  colour  to the skin brings life, power blushes can skin to dead/dry skin. So i always  recommend a cream blusher. Im in love with  ” sleek”‘s
CALIFORN.I.A 370
A 3 blush palette offering  colours  such as
Newport peach (my fav)
The surf (softest )
OC
Cab be mixed or alone,  give  great colour and life, super bendable and easy. I’m a big fan of sleek and have used on  many celeb clients .

Thank you for  joining me. And good luck. I leave you with some links and piccies
Much  love,happy new year  lew xx
