Get the look: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

“As soon as I saw Rosie’s beautiful mint green gown I knew the hair needed to be simple, clean and effortless,” says celebrity hairstylist Christian Wood. “To complement her gown, I straightened her hair and created a sharp side part. To finish, I slicked the hair back behind her ears for a sleek, chic look.”

  1. Apply Moroccanoil Treatment Light onto freshly washed hair to provide the perfect foundation for styling. For thick hair, use Moroccanoil Treatment.
  2. Add a small amount of Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to hair and blow dry smooth.
  3. Start at the nape of the neck and separate hair into 2 inch sections. Gently run a large curling iron down the hair as you would a straightening iron. This will add smoothness and shine without making hair flat.
  4. Next, using a pin tail comb, create a deep side part. Finish off the look by tucking both sides behind the ears and placing hair behind your shoulders. Mist with hairspray set hair and smooth flyaways.
  5. To finish, spray Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray onto palms and gently glide down hair for extra shine and softness.

Beauty Best Before Guide

Not sure how long you should be holding onto that favourite red lippy for? Follow our simple guide below to keep your beauty cabinet safe and effective.

  • As cosmetics that are applied to the eye area are exposed to bacteria repeatedly, they tend to have a shorter lifespan. Experts recommend replacing mascara three to six months after purchasing. Sharpening eye pencils can help minimise bacteria build up and should be replaced every year or two; liquid eyeliners on the other hand collect bacteria quicker and should be replace every six to 12 months. Eye creams have a shelf life of around six months. Never use saliva to dilute products that have dried up and always stop using eye products if you have an eye infection.
  • Preservatives are added to traditional beauty products to eliminate bacteria. Cosmetics and skincare that are plant-based, preservative-free or contain natural-based preservatives have a shorter shelf life, which is usually around six months.
  • Face masks usually expire quicker than other skincare products due to high levels of active ingredients that become unstable when exposed to air and light. To avoid skin irritation, replace every two to three months.
  • Perfume, nail polish, shampoo and body washes are more likely to stand the test of time often lasting up to three years without going off or posing any significant risk to your health.
  • Liquid formulations including foundations, concealers, eyeshadows are generally safe to use for six to 12 months but if consistency or colour changes before this period is up, bin them.
  • The shelf life of skincare varies depending on active ingredients. Always check serums, moisturises and night creams for expiry dates and the Period-After Opening symbol – the small open-jar symbol that some cosmetics and skincare bear. If in doubt, replace anything that’s older that one year.
  • A sunscreen that’s passed it’s expiry date won’t only irritate your skin, it won’t provide protection from harmful rays. Sunscreen is required to have an expiry date on it by law in Australia/New Zealand which is generally two to three years. Never use sunscreen that has stored in direct du
  • When stored correctly, high-quality make-up brushes will last for several years: store brushes in a brush roll or upright in a pencil cup.
