There’re so many different products on the market and tips and tricks, but most key is actually just making sure you brush your teeth twice a day with a good toothpaste and toothbrush; making sure you also change your toothbrush every three months. Flossing can also seem like a real pain and sometimes a little uncomfortable, but it does pay off by keeping the hard to reach places between your teeth clean and helping to stop the build-up of unsightly plaque. If you struggle with flossing, you could try floss picks – the picks essentially hold the floss for you and make it really convenient as you only have to use one hand.

It’s very easy to get stuck in a rut with your eye makeup, either playing safe and sticking to a neutral dusting of eye shadow and a bit of eye liner, or wearing the same thing day after day. There’s the color of your outfit to consider, the hue of your hair, the color of eyes and the shade of your skin.
