Boost Your Confidence & WIN With HQHair - Girl Power!

March 8th might not mean much to you yet but it should! March 8th marked International Women's Day and celebrated all things girl power (we played a lot of Spice Girls at Blusho HQ that day!), inspirational women and women's achievements. A whole day celebrating all things women...LOVE!
The theme this year, #BeBoldForChange is to encourage people to take action against gender inequality which is amazingly still present today.

In honour of International Women's Month this year, we've teamed up with our friends at HQHair to not only bring you an ah-mazing competition (keep scrolling!) but to also talk all things confidence and to find out what makeup products make YOU feel the most confident and powerful!

Would you never dream of leaving the house mascara free? Is lipstick your must-have makeup product? We are all for embracing natural beauty and think there's nothing more beautiful than a woman confident in her own skin but that doesn't mean a glamorous smokey eye can't make you feel confident too! Read on to find out some of our makeup must-haves, which make us feel ready to take on the world! Move out of the way men, us girls run the world!

Probably one of the easiest ways to make a statement and change up your look is with a swipe of lipstick. Be it a bold red, pretty pink or a natural nude, a lipstick can you make you feel like a whole new woman! Turn up to work wearing a sensible creamy nude, walk out at 5pm ready to rock in a rebellious red ;)

Lipstick love! Not only does this Illamasqua lipstick give you a gorgeous swipe of colour but it also softens and condition to give you kissable lips! Click the MUA pics above to shop the lip products they're wearing and get ready to pout!


It can make you look less tired, open up your eyes and give you long, voluminous lashes to flutter at bae to get your own way, just some of the reasons why we can't live without our trusty mascara.

Get that false lash effect in a flash with this Illamasqua mascara. Not only does it volumise but it also promises to lengthen and define your lashes. That's not the best thing though, oh no, this mascara actually tints lashes so after two weeks you will see improved colour intensity making them even more gorgeous!

Of course beauty starts from within but the right skincare provides you with a good base to help you feel beautiful on the outside too! It might get a little confusing when it comes to skincare as there are SO many products on the market from serums to moisturisers, oils, the list is endless but get it right and not only will your skin thank you but your makeup will look oh so flawless too! You'll never have to worry about being caught with no makeup on ever again ;)

One of our go-to skincare productrs from HQHair is our trusty primer to really prep our skin for makeup application. Illamasqua's Hydra Veil Primer is a Blusho favourite! Enriched with vitamins and plant extracts to ensure maximum hydration and to give you a smooth and flawless complexion, yes please! 


Ready, Steady, Flick! Ok so it might be a tricky one to master but once you get the hang of eyeliner there'll be no stopping you. No time for a smokey eye but still want to feel that little bit more glam? Or perhaps you want to change up your look for afterwork drinks, your trusty eyeliner will never let you down.

Check out this easy to use eyeliner from FACE Stockholm (above), the tapered tip gives you more control and precision and dries super quick to avoid smears and streaks. 
Need a little extra help? Watch our brand ambassador @bellamakeup's tutorial below to see how you can achieve a killer flick at home and glam up in an instant. 




So you might still be in need of that 5 star beach holiday, but you can definitely look like you've just had a luxurious two weeks away when you add a little bronze to your beauty routine. Be it an all over fake tan or a beautiful bronzed glow on your cheek and collar bones, you'll look like a greek goddess in no time ;)


Add a little bronzer to your cheekbones, temples, nose and jawbone for a contoured, sculpted look, it's even known to make you appear that little bit thinner. Ever heard of the saying Life's Better With A Tan? We totally agree!

Do you agree? Well we've just found a complete game changer, and trust us it's a helluva lot cheaper than a Carribbean holiday ;) The Madame La La Bronzing Ball glides onto skin seamlessly allowing you to bronze, contour and highlight to achieve a sunkissed glow.
