Breaking beauty habits with Angela Langford

County Wedding Magazines editor Danielle Harvey says, "Even as a journalist, and having worked as the Beauty Editor here at County Wedding Magazines HQ before, I'm still overwhelmed with all that's on offer in the beauty and wellness industry. There are hundreds of make-up and beauty brands, thousands of products, heaps of online tutorials, and ample tips and advice, how do you honestly find out what's right for you? First and foremost for me with sensitive, eczema-prone skin is the ingredients of my products – what's in it? What am I putting on my face and body? I tend to opt for all-natural products and when it comes to my face especially; for daily cleansing I had resulted in just using Micellar Water for removing my make-up each day. Which, until this winter had proven fine. However, I'm not sure whether it was the change in the weather, or the constant wearing of a face mask – the new normal - I had two irritated patches of skin on my chin area that just would not go.

False lashes: a professional make-up artist's how to

False eyelashes are an effortless glam addition to any make-up look, so even if we are at home for Christmas and New Year's Eve this year, you can still up your game! The art of application can be tricky to master but practise makes perfect. False eyelashes are popular because they can give the illusion of bigger eyes and a dramatic look and even if you're not wearing a full face of make-up, they can take your eyes to another level. Strip eyelashes are the most common and easier to apply on your own. They give a striking look whilst individual eyelashes can provide a more natural finish. Strip lashes are the most popular choice of false eyelash enhancements and can be extremely quick and easy to apply. Any rogue application can be easily avoided with accuracy. To reveal the only way to apply false eyelashes, expert makeup artist at FalseEyelashes.co.uk, Saffron Hughes, shares her secrets.

Celebrity facialist Lisa Harris reveals her top 10 skincare secrets

Celebrity facialist and skincare expert, Lisa Harris, has shared her top 10 skincare secrets with us. So let's dive straight in! Over to you Lisa... Always cleanse your skin at night. I love to use a Gentle Gel Enzyme Cleanser that gently sloughs away dead dry skin cells. It clears the skin of oxidative stress (city pollution), debris, minimises the pores by flushing out daily toxins/debris and leaves a healthy glowing complexion. Enzymes help to break down unwanted debris on the skin, but they also help to restore and repair the top layers of skin.
