Shopping for beauty products can be daunting, no matter what your age. There is currently so much to choose from offline and online, it’s hard to know where to start! This is why I love TK Maxx’s beauty section. Whether you’re looking for skincare, fragrance, makeup or hair care, there is something in there for everyone. More importantly, they have brands we trust, yet at an affordable price. Win win!
As part of their Ageless Beauty campaign, TK Maxx challenged me (I like a challenge) to go into store to find 3 key beauty items that I would use to get ready for summer. I knew they had a nice selection of brands in the beauty section, but I found more than I could have hoped for! Genuinely I’m not just saying this because this is a sponsored post (I will only ever work with brands & campaigns I love), but I walked out of there with more than 3 products! I picked up a tanning kit, hair oil, body butter and a cellulite and firming cream. Every woman NEEDS these items for summer. I have my key summer beauty staples but I’m also a trend lead girl, which is why I was super impressed with the makeup selection featuring items from Korean beauty, contouring and statement lips. TK Maxx shopping is perfect for those days when you’re off to an event, summer trip or for a shopping day with your Mum/Nan.
They have a big selection of beauty products to choose from, so keep an open mind when going online and in-store. But now they have even MORE (1000s) to choose from with their Big Beauty Event in-store and online. Once it’s gone it’s gone though, so you better get your skates on!
For me, Ageless Beauty means beauty has no age limit. As we get older we change our beauty routines, we try new things and shop in a different way as with age we gain intelligence, wisdom and experience. When I speak with my Mum and Nan about beauty, our opinions differ so much. It was interesting to talk to Fumi Desaluvold and Hayley, who were also part of the campaign. We all shared different tips with each other. I love this video, showing you three different three generations all sharing their tips on beauty.
TK Maxx asked me my top tips for getting ready for summer, shopping beauty and my star beauty tips.
What is the one beauty tip you wish discovered earlier on in life?
To blend your makeup in. I left the house many time with a ring around my face. Girlies please get a blender and blend your makeup!
What piece of advice would you give to your younger self?
To learn to love the skin you were born with. It’s so important to try not to cover it up and instead accept who you are and enhance what you have.
What element of beauty should you never compromise on?
Moisturising your body! So important for healthy-looking skin
What tips would you give about shopping in TK Maxx?
It’s best not to have any expectations, go in there with an open mind and you will find so many unexpected beauty gems
Summer is on the way, how is best to get ready?
Prep the skin with an exfoliator everyday
Use a daily gradual tan that looks natural so you look a little more toned on the beach
Use a cellulite/firming cream with a body brush on the areas you’re most worried about. It reduces the dimples and get the circulation going so you have smoother skin
What product would you keep in your beach bag?
A lip balm with sunscreen in it is a must!
Have you ever done any DIY beauty hacks?
When I was blonde, I thought I could make my hair lighter by squeezing 6 lemons on my hair. It’s safe to say it’s not a hack I’d ever try or recommend again. My hair looked greasy and stank!
We want you to enjoy the beauty experience too, so I have teamed up with TK Maxx to giveaway a gift card too so you can experience what I did! To enter the competition, all you have to do is go over to my Instagram post here and follow the instructions.
