Beauty News: Brighten up your life - with Michael Douglas

Brighten up your life - with Michael Douglas

When I met with celebrity hairstylist and OGX ambassador, Michael Douglas to mark the launch of OGX's new Colour Retention range, I can say with confidence that I was definitely having colour retention problems. I'd recently taken the plunge with my dream pastel violet hair colour, but my beloved shade was quickly running away from me. Michael very kindly offered to top my colour up, and while he mixed together a stunning new violet for me, I asked him about OGX's new range. "All of the brand's products are PH-balanced with sulphate-free surfactants, which don't bind to anything you don't want them to meaning they're all very gentle on colour," he told me.


Beauty News: Skin deep - with Angela Langford

Skin deep - with Angela Langford

The idea for Angela Langford as a brand started when Angela was working in a stressful, pressured, corporate job in Gibraltar, from which she was eventually made redundant. She knew she wasn't meant for that world any longer, and set out to create her own business based on her passions. "I was travelling less, which meant I couldn't easily get my favourite skincare from the UK anymore," Angela says. "So, I started making my own products for personal use, with no intention of turning it into a career." But, having discovered a love for the whole process, she did a lot of research and eventually decided to turn her new-found passion into a business, sharing her products with others. She went on to study cosmetic formulation in depth, which in turn opened up a completely new world for her. Beauty editor Kelly Andrews chatted to Angela recently to find out more about the brand and its products, as well as how they can help you feel skin confident for your wedding day, complete with that gorgeous bridal glow.

There's nothing like a bit of tan to make you feel more confident, especially when it comes to attending a wedding.
