Our Make-Up Skin Prep Guide

NIPFAB-Makeup

Prepping your skin before applying make-up is vital to getting that flawless look. Follow our step-by-step guide to get make-up ready skin.

Glycolic Fix Pads | Nip + Fab

1. Exfoliate

- Remove dead skin cells to provide a smooth, fresh surface for your make-up application
- Exfoliate around the nose area, in between the brows and crease of the chin – often neglected areas where powder can build up

2. Moisturise

- Follow with a hydrating moisturiser or serum to plump the skin
- Massage all over the face and down to the neck area to stimulate blood flow for that healthy, fresh finish

CC Cream - Light | Nip + Fab

3. Prime

- Use a CC cream as a lightweight base to moisturise skin whilst providing medium coverage to give a smooth complexion
- Our CC creams have the added benefit of providing SPF30 skin protection and are available in a light and dark shade

Eliza (2)
Our very own Eliza Wells, who heads up PR at Nip+Fab – working closely with magazine publications, bloggers and brand ambassadors like Millie Mackintosh – reveals her top 3 products from the Nip+Fab range:

Dragon’s Blood Fix Pads - “I love the Dragons Blood Cleansing Pads as they are really soft on the skin and leave no stickiness which cleansing pads sometimes do. They also get rid of all traces of make up for when I am feeling lazy!”

Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask - “I use the Bee Sting Lifting Mask 3 times a week to keep my skin looking plumped. It makes my skin look really dewy too.”

Yoga Blend Body Wash  - “The Yoga Blend body wash is amazing. It smells delicious and make me feel calm after a long day at NIP+FAB HQ!”

Topshop Unique S/S15 LFW

Fashion week means one thing for Nip+Fab HQ TOPSHOP! Each season we all wait for the Topshop show to begin and it always reflects the fashion everyone here at Nip+Fab HQ loves!

It’s really wearable and gives a cool London vibe. Cara Delevingne opened the show as there new brand ambassador! The collection was super cool, retro and sporty everything the London girl needs to survive a summer in the city!

We saw cute mini dresses, bordeaux and sky blue popped against stark white A-line skirts, or frilly mini hot pants in navy blue! The collection went into the ideal night vibe for the Topshop girl, consisting of knife pleated silver lame skirts and ruffles, slip-of-nothing dresses decorated in a smattering of Swarovski crystals.

This collection felt young, current and fresh. Normally Topshop try and target the more mature customers, although this collection felt young, but in a relaxed sporty way!

We love it Topshop we can’t wait for our next season, sporty sexy looks here we come!

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham Covers Vogue

I picked up the latest copy of Vogue Australia on a recent trip abroad and i have to say, I am absolutely loving it. Featuring fashion icon and businesswoman Victoria Beckham, the main interview gives an insight into her busy lifestyle and family life as she talks candidly about everything from her evening beauty ritual to spending time with her children. The shoot shows off a softer side to Victoria and I love her flawless skin, soft smoky eyes and swept back hair – definitely a look I am coveting for Fall!

Maintain motivation in the winter weather

When contemplating exercising, the idea of heading out into the summer sun and conveniently catching a tan whilst you work out, can be enough to make the prospect actually seem bearable.

But when the sub-zero temperatures arrive + the rain (or even worse the snow) is falling, it can be an easy decision to choose dryness and a few extra pounds over braving the rain in the name of a flat tum – (it will be hidden under a woolly jumper in winter anyway right?!) But instead of giving up hope + going into hibernation, take a look at our top tips for keeping yourself motivated…
1. Think of how hard you have worked to get to where you are It is likely that sweat, aches + tears were all ingredients in your summer exercise regime so don’t let that be for nothing. Stamina + strength are built over time so taking six months off to avoid the sleet and snow will send you back to square one. A person’s summer and winter routines are different so re-think how you can bring exercise into your winter one just like you did in the summer.
2. What about the party season?! When you walk into the party of the year, make sure people are looking at you for all the right reasons. Toned legs + a healthy glow are a much better reason to be gaining attention than the fact that you had to resort to sporting a onsie as it is all that currently fits you. As well as keeping up with the exercise add Nip+Fab’s body slim fix into your routine for firm skin that is sure to get heads turning.
3. Exercise inside For those who are working with the excuse that it is too cold or wet to exercise outside, sorry guys – there is a simple solution… exercise inside! Gyms, swimming pools, and work out classes are all ideal ways to keep fit when the winter chill kicks in, so don’t let that be an excuse for letting yourself go!
So whether you’re a swimmer or a runner a cyclist or a dancer, don’t let a drop in temperature mean a rise on them scales. Stay focussed, remember your goals + stay on track to ensure you look and feel just as wonderful in winter as you did in the summer.

The buzz about CC cream

First there were BB’s, now CC are the hot new letters on every make-up artists’ lips.  Yes CC creams, or complexion correctors to use their full name, are the new kids on the block in beauty and we couldn’t be more excited about them.

If you haven’t been tempted to try a CC cream yet, now’s a great time to give them a go. Not only do they make a great base for your makeup, they give a natural looking, sheer coverage that allows your skin to breathe and isn’t heavy like a lot of foundations. CC’s are especially great for this time of year, when you want to make the most of your skin’s post holiday glow but still want to hide any blemishes or pesky redness.

Our CC cream is lightweight and crammed with oat extract to smooth and tone skin, as well as soline to keep skin moisturised for 24 hours. Light diffusing pigments in the cream brighten skin and leave your complexion looking radiant. You can even top this off with CC eye fix to brighten the eye area and get picture-perfect skin. Rumour has it Taylor Swift is a big fan, and if it’s good enough for her…
So what are you waiting for? Wave goodbye to foundation and say hello to your new beauty must-have.
