On this stupendously stylish sunday we give you our top 3 beauty picks when it comes to all things dotty!
#1 Polka Dot Nails
One of the cutest ways to wear your spots in on your nails! Getting dotty with your mani is actually super easy to do. Check out this guide to creating your own dotting tool, as shared by thebeautydepartment.com.
Of course, you can also use the end of a matchstick (my go to for an easy and disposable nail art applicator) too! When you decide to dot, it always looks best if you start with a plain base colour - like white, black or a bold bright- to really make your spots pop! Check out some inspiration below.
Some of our favourite colours for the dotty nail look are the bright colours we have here at bb. For a great selection, which you can mix and match, try the MeMeMe Nails Brights Collection, which includes impulsive zesty lime, spirited orange, hot pink vivacious and tenacious turquoise. Why not try using one colour as your base coat and the other three for the spots for a fun colour combo that is sure to lift your spirits everytime you look down at your tips during the day!
#2 A Spotty Head Scarf
There is something oh-so-retro about polka dots which is why they work so perfectly as a print on head scarfs! Channel your best 50's ladylike look by simply throwing your hair into a messy top knot and wrapping a spotty scarf around your head. If you don't like wearing scarves headband style, try tying one around the elastic of your pony tail for an equally cute look. Check out some more spotty hair-spiration below.
However, it is a good idea to make sure you hair is in great condition if you are going to draw attention to it with a sweet spotted scarf. Of course, you can hide in-between-washes hair with a headband style, like the one above, but it is harder to hide dry and brittle looking hair, with a head scarf - let alone any other piece of headwear. Except maybe a balaclava (which is not so chic) It is easier to keep your tresses looking and feeling both strong and silky with a great serum. Try the Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment which includes Argan Oil for nourishment and moisture - currently trending on the locks of the bb girls right now and smells devine too!
We know. We know - freckles aren't really something you can apply yourself! But they are something that we felt we needed to celebrate. After all, freckles are pretty cool. Doesn't the saying go 'A girl without freckles, is like a night without stars'? If you are one of the lucky lasses who has a bevvy of these sweet beauty spots you should definitely embrace it. The time of the freckle is now! Instead of trying to cover yours up, look for sheer foundations which still let yours shine through. Freckled faces also look great with a little colour on the cheeks. If you have an olive/dark complexion, go for a bronze shade. If you are paler, look to pinks for your pop of colour. We love the MeMeMe Blush Me! Blush Boxes - which come in four amazing shades, there's bound to be one to suit you and your freckles! Sweep across cheeks to add instant summer warmth to your look, even in winter.
