I do love a good YouTube challenge and the most recent one I’ve seen is the ‘Throwback Make Up’ tag. YouTubers are recreating the make up they used to wear in school and the results are hilarious. So I decided to get involved… take a look at my throwback make up video below!

There’s a good mix of some long-term favourites that will be familiar if you’re a regular round these parts and some new and exciting bits that I think you’ll love.

When I decided to start writing about beauty I chose to focus on nails because, although I was just as excited by make up and skincare, I saw this as a great way to talk about beauty without having to show my face to the world.

I have rosacea, a skin condition that means my face is always red and can flare up at any time. I never leave the house without make up and the thought of sharing photos of my bare skin used to fill me with dread. So what changed?

A few weeks ago I was invited to go to Avène with … Avène. It was my first press trip and I was embarrassingly excited. I was a bit nervous as I didn’t know anyone else going and wasn’t sure what to expect but couldn’t wait to go. Want to hear all about my trip to Avène, complete with photos of the most ridiculously beautiful scenery? Let’s go!

For years I couldn’t trust anyone else around my face, worried that they’d use a product or a technique that would irritate my rosacea. But now that I’ve discovered that my super-sensitive, reactive skin can handle facials, there’s no stopping me! Read all about my MicroZone Dermalogica facial at One New Change* below…

A few weeks ago I was invited to try out a Cellcosmet facial at Courtenay Day Spa*. I’d never heard of Cellcosmet before so if you’re just as out of the loop as me, here’s the lowdown. They’re a Swiss brand who are skin experts, and celeb fans include Jennifer Aniston, Claudia Schiffer and Liv Tyler. They describe their products as cosmeceutical, as they combine cosmetology and pharmacology.
