National Television Awards 2015

The National Television Awards took place last week at London's 02 Arena. 
Television stars all joined for a night of glamour all hoping to walk the red carpet and 
receive an award for all their hard work over the past 12 months. 

Well done to everyone that won awards...
 but all we're really fussed about is what the dresses were like!
Here are some of our favourites...

It was clear that black was the colour to wear this year! The GlamR girls love a black dress...
We also found some cheaper high street versions of their outfits!


we love this from boohoo.com Top £12 Skirt £15

Amanda Holden looks stunning in this black two piece the top is by Stella McCartney and the high waisted skirt is by Roland Mouret - goes together wonderfully..we thought it was a dress! It is simple but the detailed shape and cut out sides hugs her lovely figure. We are loving her sleeked back pony and her earrings go lovely with her outfit and adds a bit of detail.
For a lady of 43 she sure does look amazing!


Love this from 

We love Alisha Dixon's dress (by Rick Owen's)it is again simple but effective with an open detailed back...although we aren't so keen on the pocket at the front it adds an edge. 
She sparkles it up with her gorgeous silver heels. 
She has kept her accessories to a minimum with small silver studded earrings and a cuff bracelet on each wrist. 
Her plum shade lipstick suits her gorgeous skin.
 We think she looks beautiful!

House of Fraser

Rochelle Humes went for Hollywood glamour for the awards which we absolutely love!
She went for a fierce red which really stood out.
Her dress which was designed by Suzanne Neville has a sweetheart neck line and comes down into a fish tail style gown.
Her hair was swept back and she had bronzy makeup with a red lip..we also love a red lip at GlamR! Rochelle also went for minimal accessories to make her dress stand out more, she wore an amazing gold necklace...with a bit of sparkle!
Emily loves her look.

Golden Globes 2015

Last Sunday was the Golden Globes Awards and us girls at GlamR love looking at all the celebrities dresses and of course the hair & makeup. 

We thought we would share our favourite looks with you..

We love Jennifer Lopez's look. How she has paired her smoky eye with a nude lip matches her bronzed skin perfectly.  We love that she has a subtle lip because it makes her bold eyes really pop. 

 Her makeup artist Mary Phillips created a look that made a feature of her beautiful almond shaped eyes and amazing contouring to highlight her insane cheek bones.
 The singers hairdresser gave her hair big volume and sublte waves. Her centre parting gave us a chance to see her beautiful diamond earrings!
We love her bold daring style!

 Keira Knightley looks fresh and beautiful. Having recently announced her pregnancy she definately is glowing. 
Her makeup artist Kate Lee tried to focus on her high cheekbones and she accentuated them using a highlighter on the tops of her cheekbones, under the cheekbones she used a sculpting powder to define and on the apples of her cheeks she used a rose gold blush. Her plumy rose lipstick suits her 'vintagy' style. 
With Keira's hair off of her face it makes her entire look really stand out.  

Although we aren't so keen on her dress, but it does suit her unique style and personality, which really reminds us of Kate Middleton!

Maria will be recreating these looks in the salon on the girls this week,
so keep your eyes peeled!
What other celebrity looks would you like Maria to recreate?

         New year  New skin  New you 

Well it's 2015, my skin has been through a lot over the last couple of months with over eating, drinking and central heating. Although it has not been that cold over here in the UK, but with the days being shorter and lack of vitamin D my skin is dry and dull. So i thought I would treat myself to a long over due TLC for my skin, a Crystal Clear facial.

Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion has fantastic results which can even been seen after the first treatment. It is recommended to have a Crystal Clear every 4 weeks, depending on your skin condition and what results you would like to achieve. 

Crystal clear is a favorite with a lot of the celebrities and clients, celebrities such as 
Kate Moss, Jude Law, Madonna, Cameron Diaz, Victoria Beckham, Colin Firth

Take a look at how it all works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQj9d1qUPNw

A good product to correspond with my facial would be the Skin Brightening Complex. This helps to act as a moisturizer and also has an SPF of 15 which is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer to protect our skin. This product has a natural skin brightening ingredient to give you a healthy glow without looking oil. It is also brilliant for pigmentation and uneven skin tones. And it really does work!

The before and after pictures of the effects of a course of Crystal Clear facials will be on our blog soon!

Happy New Year!
We will be starting the New Year off with a bang....

Everyone is starting to get excited for the film release of Fifty Shades of Grey due for release on Valentines Day 2015.

In honour of the film being released O.P.I. have brought out a "Fifty Shades of Grey" collection. 
The collection has 6 (no, not 50) dark and beautiful colours and they aren't all grey. The collection has a super dangerous red, at GlamR we love red nails. 
The greys go from charcoal to silver and the collection even includes a bit of sparkle which we love!

We are loving the sexy unique names for the colours that O.P.I. have created:

My Silk Tie (silver), Romantically Involved (red), Dark Side of the Mood (charcoal), Shine for Me (subtle blue grey), Cement the Deal (cool grey) and Embrace the Gray (moody grey). 

There is a lot of excitement about this film as the book written by E.L James has become the best selling book of all time in Britain.
Have any of you read the books? If so, what are your opinions on the film release?

So prepare for this Valentines Day release with a bit of O.P.I.  Maybe these colours will attract your own Mr Grey?

Will be coming into GlamR this week!
