bad beauty habits

As a beauty blogger I’m often dishing out tips and tricks on how to use products. However, there are so many bad beauty habits that I also have, which I try and avoid. More often than not, even though I’ve told myself I will stop, it just keeps happening. I’m quite happy to admit them, as I know that I’m guilty of falling into bad habits.

I love writing posts like these because it is so different to what I usually feature on The Life Of Vanisha. So here they are, my top 10 bad beauty habits that I am guilty of.

Wearing Makeup To The Gym

I don’t know about you, but when I go to the gym I go to push myself to my limits, and know that I will be sweating buckets during my workout. The last thing I want to do is go to the gym with my war paint (that’s makeup!) on, and be worried about whether my contour is perfectly intact. Knowing my luck, if I was to go to the gym with makeup on, I would be a walking Panda.

Yet it is often the case, when I’m walking to the gym or working out, I see girls with makeup plastered all over their face. I just cannot find a reason as to why girls do this, and cannot imagine how uncomfortable it must be.

To me, the gym is somewhere I go to tune out from the world, and to just focus on myself. I’m not out there to impress anyone, and I certainly don’t see many people looking at others and judging. The gym, for me, is the least judgmental place. So why is it so many of us feel the need to ensure we are primed and perfected even somewhere you go to sweat it all out? View Post

Aussie Hair

Aussie Hair is a brand that I have been using on and off for a good few years now. I remember seeing the posters when I was sitting on the tube one morning, and it really drew me in as it was so different from other hair care posters I had seen around. n array of carefully selected words, portraying a story through the posters, it just made promotions from Aussie Hair different as they were words and sayings you wouldn’t normally associate with hair-care.

Phrases such as “hair that shines like freshly fallen snow” and describing their ingredients as “Assomee”  there really is just one theme here. To give everyone out there some Aussie shine in their lives. Let’s face it, here in London we rarely have Summers that scratch the surface of the weather in Australia. So for now, Aussie Hair are bringing Australia to us. View Post
