A very exciting thing happened to me last week. I won a competition from the fabulous Content Beauty that enabled me to have a 1-2-1 consultation with the amazing Kristen, founder of Kjaer Weis (pronounced Ke-yar Wis which I only just found out!). I was SO excited, in awe and nervous about it I totally forgot to sort out my lighting so I could hardly been seen! Regardless of that, I managed to spend some time with a totally inspiring lady who gave me some fabulous tips and tricks that I’ll remember forever.
So what did I learn?
Beauty products can only help you so much. We all kinda know this right? Well Kristen is a firm advocate of this, drinking only her ‘green lemonade’ until noon and 2 litres of water every day. And it shows. Her skin is glowing, soft and looks blinking incredible. It’s the kind of skin you really, really want to have. Luckily, I managed to find out what Kristen’s green lemonade consisted of, because it’s now becoming a staple of mine.

Juice is altogether and you’re set to glow!
Highlight your nose for a pretty look
Now, I’ve never really done this. Mainly because my nose, is just hanging out on my face being a nose. But Kristen talked a lot about creating a ‘super pretty’ kind of look and if you use the Radiance highlighter from her range and pop it on the high cheek bone area, top of the forehead and down your nose, it makes your look fresh, pretty and bright. So I tried it. And it works. Obviously. She is the queen of natural, gorgeous make up so anything that she says is going to obviously be correct!
You can use fingers or brushes or both
There is a lot of debate that talks about what gives you the best finish and it will go on forever and a day because different people have different preferences. Kristen uses her fingers for a lot of the time but also brushes when using eyeshadows and brows to get a finished look. The Kjaer Weis foundation warms up with your fingers making it super light and easy to put on and create a flawless look. Kristen also noted the foundation really is like skincare because of the ingredients in it and how great it is for your skin. It’s also recyclable so you can keep that fabuloso packaging forever! If you do prefer brushes, then the collection is really amazing with precision point and blending brushes that are synthetic with not a peek of animal hair about. Amaze.
Forget concealer if you get build up under your eyes
This one surprised me. I have always used foundation and then concealer but got annoyed at the build up under my eyes during the day. Kristen blew it out of the water and told me to just use foundation. It sounds so simple but when you get into a routine of using your favourite products all the time, when you hear something like that, it makes you think how much of a beauty rut you’re in and how you need to shake it up a little!
Try purple eye shadow (if you have blue eyes)
Referring back to my make up rut, I chatted with Kristen about what other colours would suit me and she recommended her Pretty Purple shadow. When you get recommended these things by an expert, you have to try them. I’ll let you know how I get on!
And then it was time to wrap up! To spend some time with Kristen was such an amazing prize to win – thank you Content Beauty!
