Is it Time to get some Extra Help for your Elderly Loved One?

A little something different today seen as the excitement on Halloween is upon us. This is a topic that is very dear to my heart and something that I believe everyone should be aware of, and most importantly, everyone should know when it's time to ask need help, as well as where to go. There's nothing harder than the situations that require these questions, but there is so much help out there that you can be supported every step of the way.

Is it Time to get some Extra Help for your Elderly Loved One?
If you’re concerned about the wellbeing of an elderly loved one, you may have begun to look at different options out there to make their life a little bit easier.
One of those options is getting some extra help at home for them. Knowing whether it’s time to go for this can be tough, so we’ve put together some questions to ask yourself when considering this, to hopefully help you realise whether it’s right for your/their situation at the moment or not.

Are they struggling with day to day tasks?
If day to day tasks are getting too difficult for them, it may be a very good idea to look into ways you can make things easier. Simple tasks that we take for granted can soon be a huge problem for elderly people, from getting out of bed to showering, to cooking or fetching groceries. This can be anything from purchasing things like mobility aids for the elderly to actually getting some professional help at home.

Halloween Makeup: Comic Book

After already creating a very quick and badly photographed Comic Book look earlier this year, I couldn't wait to redo and perfect it for Boohoo's blog. The post contained some amazing bloggers and a makeup artist that I absolutely adore, Karla Powell. I decided to create a step by step guide that shows you exactly how to recreate that ever growing popular Comic Book look that is so easy to rock for Halloween. With this look you have lots of options in what kind of direction you want to go. You can go all out with pop art body paint, comic book dots and outlining your hair, or you could go the more simpler route of just outlining your features and around your face. I opted for a pretty easy but effective look which is very wearable for whatever Halloween occasion.

Products used/steps taken

  1. Start off with a fully prepped and primed face and apply your favourite foundation, here I am using Vanishing Cream Moisturiser, Younique Primer and Illamasqua Skinbase 2.
  2. Create over-arched and worried looking brows using black eyeliner. The Balm Eyeliner is perfect for this and use it to block fill your eyebrows.

Hi Impact Brows

I always find that trying to make my brows look natural always takes a lot more effort than just drawing them completely on. Simply because there's a lot of blending and fine brush strokes involved. To my surprise, the Hi Impact Brows palette has made it incredibly easy to achieve naturally enhanced brows, that still make a statement, in literally minutes. Described as a 'unique' palette that allows you to personalise your eyebrow colour to suit your every mood and hair colour, and I've definitely been blown away by it. The pigments are incredibly strong and can easily be mixed or blended down to suit just about everyone. I decided to go for a slightly red or 'cinnamon' brow, as it's difficult to have natural brows with severely dyed hair. The Hi Impact Brows palette contains Black, Chocolate Brown, Cinnamon Brown and blonde as well as a pretty handy eyebrow brush. The packaging it sleek and small enough to make it handbag friendly for top ups and also has a pretty long mirror which saves space also.
