A very exciting phrase I never thought I would say coming up… tomorrow I will be talking at Vogue House. I will be doing two talks as part of the Beauty Without Boundaries pop up: a partnership with Vogue, Feel Unique and Pinterest to celebrate the Vogue Beauty Awards. Pinterest has asked me to talk about my rosacea and how I use ‘unusual’ beauty to give me confidence – a topic I could talk about until the cows come home. They may need to drag me off-stage to shut me up…!
Throughout my recent Talonted Lips and Tips challenge, the second most common question (after ‘how did you do that?!’) was ‘how on earth are your nails and lips surviving?’ Applying and removing layers of very matte lipstick can really dry out the lips, and the constant removal of nail varnish can leave your hands feeling stripped and parched… and this replicates a lot of the effects that cold and blustery weather has on the body. So here is a post all about how to winter-proof your lips and nails!
I can’t believe that we’ve come to the end of Talonted Lips And Tips! 30 days, 30 different matching lips and manicures. I started off planning to just do plain and simple looks, as a way to use up some of my huge stash of lipsticks and nail varnishes, but then I (foolishly?) did a leopard print look and it was so popular that I felt like I couldn’t go back to simple looks!
If you’re a fan of lipstick and nails then my current instagram challenge will be right up your street: for Talonted Lips And Tips I set myself the challenge of matching my lips to my nails each day for the month. I can’t believe we’re now in the last week!
In an attempt to make me fall love with Instagram again, I’ve been doing a daily picture challenge: for every day in November I’m matching my lipstick and nails. Here is my summary of week two of Talonted Lips And Tips.
