Many brides-to-be choose to do their own makeup, I should know I was one of them.

2019 is flying by! It’s already the end of April which means Summer (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere) is right around the corner. The UK teased us with some sunshine over the Bank Holiday weekend, making us think it was safe to pull out the summer wardrobe.

Mineral powders, cushion, CC cream, BB cream, mousse, full coverage, second skin, … Continue reading I’m all about the base
This afternoon, I put on a Caroline Hirons YouTube video in the background while I was tidying up the bedroom (rock and roll!). And as I was folding up my husband’s trousers which is obviously too complicated a task, she mentioned her friend who has become the editor of NEW BEAUTY MAGAZINE.
