Beauty and products to me are all about discovering to compliment your skin. I love makeup and I happen to be the ultimate consumer. Sucker for packaging and and will try the ‘must have’. I am also loyal and if I fall for the perfect mascara or blush I repurchase but you have to play the field a little bit to know what you are missing. I love a recommendation but take them from friends, makeup artists who are friends and when a lifestyle blogger or photographer shouts out her favourite things because she uses them and loves them. This whole concept is where the beauty blogger was born where you were connected to new ‘friends’ opening their makeup stash but I have refined the advice as it is hard to see through the paid promotions and advertising sometimes. There are still a lot of people like myself that do get paid but only for things they believe in and honestly love. Eleanor Pendleton, Gemma Watts and my girl and superstar makeup artist Jade Kisnorbo are just a few and this is where I am coming in.
I am going to let you know when something comes my way and you should add it to your ‘EDIT’. The fab girls above are beauty experts and will give you how to and lots of amazing details on the use of the products as well as highlighting. Ill make an EDIT with all the things that I have as staples in the routine and things that come my way that I think you will love. I am a lifestyle girl and I am sharing my way about creating a beautiful styled life and beauty is a part of that story.
MECCA is my main beauty squeeze and I have been a fan of the company for as long as I have been buying makeup and products. The philosophy and story of founder Jo Horgan is one to read if you have not done so already. The best brands and products are sourced and we are going to find them and share the love.
Byredo Gypsy Water – The Cult fragrance. So unique and fresh. Once you have this in your life you will never want to be without. This goes for the entire range.
French Girl – This range of products was new to me and I received the Rose Lip Polish in a goodie bag at the start of the year so when I saw it available at Mecca I was excited to try the full range. The polish preps and exfoliates for the perfect pout.
Bare Minerals – The newly released Bare Pro foundation. A full coverage yet feels so light on your skin. The enzymes and ingredients give a guilt free application that won’t have you waiting until you can wash it off.
