provoke5We hear ‘make up for your hair’ is the hot new trend*, with products that take the theory of skincare and cleverly apply it to our hair.

Enter the Pro:Voke Touch of Silver hair care collection – specially formulated to revive lacklustre locks and give fantastic shine to blonde, grey and white hair.

TV star and fashionista Lydia Rose Bright said“I love fashion and beauty and trying different looks with my make-up and hair. Touch of Silver is great for giving my hair a boost and makes it really bright and glossy – I always feel more confident when my hair looks good.”

As any make-up artist would tell you, a green tint reduces the appearance of redness on the skin. To neutralise yellow tones that cause brassiness in blonde hair, Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Twice A Week Brightening Shampoo, 150ml, £3.05, uses a violet pigment complex to instantly revive and brighten hair, leaving it more radiant and healthy-looking with fantastic shine.

A touch of highlighter to the face instantly lifts your appearance, and for hair that needs an on-the-spot re-fresh between washes, Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Revitalising Dry Shampoo, £2.54, lifts and revives dull, limp locks and really adds volume. UV Absorber also helps to protect your colour.

Little Miss Fix It…

Just as a face mask does wonders for your skin, the rich, deep conditioning Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Intensive Treatment Conditioner, £3.05, repairs and nourishes hair with Keratin and Sunflower Seed Extract, leaving it soft and smooth with exceptional radiance and shine.

Pro:Voke Touch of Silver is available from Boots, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Superdrug, John Lewis, Fenwick, Lloyds Pharmacy and Independent pharmacies

Cracked blushers, clumpy mascara, gloopy glosses? Maybe it’s time to make-over your make-up bag in time for the spring season. Follow Clinique’s guide to ensure you have the most organised and on-trend makeup bag..,


Step 1: Clean out your bagBlushing Blush Powder Blush - Innocent Peach

Start by throwing things away. Any make-up product that has a funny odour, altered colour, dried out, expired, cracked, goes in the rubbish.

Test all foundations and concealers. Keep the ones that match your skin tone today. Don’t save foundations that you think you will wear in summer or winter months, because by then you may be slightly more tanned or lighter.

When that time comes, you can invest in a seasonal foundation and concealer. Get rid of any foundation that is separating or concealer that doesn’t blend well. Keep black, charcoal and brown eye liners and eye pencils. All eye colours look good with these shades.

Throw out old or clumpy mascaras. Clear out any blush that is cracked. Invest in a new one, if you see the bottom of the pot. Throw out any glosses with frayed brushes or old applicators. Keep only a handful of lipsticks in neutral every day shades and either a deeper or a brighter one for evening. Give away all products you have never used, opened or donʼt know how to use.


Step 2: Stock your ‘on the move’ bag with make-up must-havesEven Better Makeup

Apply a liquid foundation in the morning at home, but if you want to carry a foundation with you, pick a compact foundation with a sponge and mirror.

Keep a pressed powder in your make-up bag. It is great for touch-ups, because it doesn’t spill, it comes with a puff and is easy to carry all day long. Choose blushes in neutral shades, that come with their own brushes.

They are easy to throw in your bag, so you don’t have to carry a separate blush brush. Cream and stick blushes are also good, since they donʼt crack or spill and you can use your fingers to apply them.

Invest in two tubes of your favourite lipstick shades: keep one at home and one in your bag. The cost is minimal and the pay off is huge. Choose a long wearing mascara in black or brown that stays on all day and doesn’t smudge. Select an eye shadow quad palette. Itʼs perfect to carry with you and you can apply neutral shades during the day and darker ones during the evening.


Step 3: Vanity Tool Box

If you want to achieve high performance, accuracy and expert control when applying make-up, you need to have the right tools. Clinique recommends the ‘must have’ brushes for your kit. Clinique Makeup Brushes are sleek, professional and the perfect tool to use when applying your make-up. The brushes go above and beyond the typical professional brush design with its Anti-Microbial Technology. This technology protects the brushes from mold, fungus and bacteria, which tend to accumulate on brushes especially if stored in the bathroom where moisture and humidity are constant.
