Since Love Island 2021 star Kaz Kamwi informed OK! that the girls sometimes are only given around 30 minutes to get ready for evening events, we’ve been wondering how this year’s cast look so made up when they have so little time to do so.
We also know from seeing her use the tool in the villa that Tasha Ghouri often favours the Dyson Airwrap, £479.99 here, which gives her hair a supermodel-worthy bounce. However, on days when she needs speedier styling – the Airwrap needs to be used from damp for best results – Boots says she turns to Mark Hill Pick ‘N’ Mix Medium Curl barrel, £16.99 here. We love a low-cost alternative!
The size of the barrel is quite large, which means Tasha can curl quite big chunks of her hair at a time, saving precious minutes she can then use on makeup application. The results also speak for themselves, and Twitter has plenty to say on the subject of her volume and bounce…
“Tasha’s hair always looks so good,” tweets one user, while a second says: “Tasha’s hair tonight though. @Dyson do you want to gift me the air wrap (pretty please)??”
A third writes: “Tasha is our forever beach wave hair inspo.”
Tasha isn’t the only Islander from this series to serve us some bargain beauty finds. Boots let us know last week that Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu uses OGX Renewing+ Argan Oil of Morocco Penetrating Oil, usually £7.99 but currently on sale for £4.49 here, to keep her hair in tip-top condition. Considering how known the Turkish actress now is for her healthy, tumbling tresses, fans have rushed out to snap up the low-cost oil.
We’ve also heard that Paige Thorne is using a bargain clear eyebrow gel to get a “brow lamination” effect in place of a beauty salon treatment. The product in question is 17 Brow + Lash Lamination Clear Mascara, just £2.50 here, which offers an on-trend eyebrow lamination effect with just a sweep of a brush. It’s also the perfect product for the villa beauty room as the formula is completely clear and therefore all of the girls can use it no matter what their brow colour is.
As for Indiyah Polack, we’ve finally got the deets on her punchy lipgloss after Dami commented after kissing her: “this lip gloss is powerful though”. Her plumping formula is the work of Fenty Gloss Bomb, £18 here – no shock there. This lip gloss from Rihanna’s beauty range has been a hit in the villa time and time again, with past Islanders like Millie Court and Faye Winter swearing by its plumping powers.
BRB, we’re off to shop everything!
