I genuinely love make up. I spent the best part of my twenties owning concealer and mascara and avoiding all the other goodies. To be honest I was scared of make up and wary of the salespeople behind the counters. I didn't want to make expensive mistakes buying the wrong products I didn't know how to use so I favoured a very natural look.
Having the opportunity to sit down with Jo Malone, one of the most successful entrepreneurs responsible for revolutionising the beauty industry, marked a personal career highlight. Globally recognised for building the beauty brand eponymous with her name she is now creating Jo Loves.
Over the weekend a really special moment took place... I found 'the' dress! It's really only now sinking in, even though there has been months of planning, booking venues, paying deposits and organising, that we are getting married next May.
In terms of treatments I have to be honest and say that during my time as a beauty contributor and writer for Social and Personal I experienced a lot. Plenty were brilliant (and nearly all enjoyable) but some treatments were overrated.
I have always been a fan of natural beauty products but ever since changing my diet I’ve become much more conscious of being more consistently vigilant in ensuring products I use (and promote) are cruelty free but also effective.
Since being appointed a Yonka brand ambassador in June a trip to Paris to the head office and the laboratory was on the cards. I have long been a fan of the products and when I was a teenager actually had a Yonka facial.
A natural look is the make up holy grail in my book. I love when people look like themselves, just more polished. Years ago I assumed people on TV or models got their make up done professionally all the time and sadly I soon found out that this isn't the case.
For so, so long I have wanted to do beauty Vlogs. Finally after plenty of failed (quickly deleted) attempts, here is my first beauty video where I chat about some of the products I am loving at the moment! I really hope you enjoy this as I am already excited about making the next!
