How to release your inner diva
A London girl is a busy lady, so what does it take to hot it up for a night on the town? There’s a fine line between work and play when you’re a busy London lady, only Flavour can have all the answers about what it takes to create heat on a night out. We teamed up with pop/dance group Booty Luv (the girls were previously in the band Big Brovaz!); consisting of Nadine and Cherise who fitted us into their busy schedule while promoting their brand new single – Say It. The girls are no strangers to the club scene, so here are their top tips, to release your inner diva!
What is your favourite hair or beauty brand and why?
Cherise: Pantene Shampoo – I just love the smell of it. It’s so comforting, especially when you’re on tour all the time. I also love to wash my hair every day – it’s like some kind of addiction! Also the conditioner is so good, it’s classic. I use them both all the time!
What top tips can you give us when preparing to go out to a club?
Nadia: You should always wear fake eyelashes – even if you’re going to a bar. It makes your eyes look really attractive and accentuates your overall look.
What are the three key hair and beauty products you would never club without?
Anything by Mark Hill – especially the Shine Serum – it’s fresh & quite light, not greasy at all. Lancôme Juicy Tubes – you can’t go anywhere without them.
Elizabeth Arden – Bronzer… Perfect!
What tip can you give to keep looking fresh at a club?
Cherise: Mac 2 In 1 Studio Fix is my top tip. It’s great just in case you get shiny, put a bit on and you’ll instantly be transformed back to normal.
Thanks girls and good luck with the single!
