I've always been someone who has been fascinated by makeup and beauty. How it can liberate and empower individuals to express themselves and allow people, me included, to feel more confident. Growing up in a female household who are all beauty oriented has allowed me to experiment with makeup from a young age. My absolute go-to makeup look is a glowy, natural look and I've recently started doing faux freckles- to feel sun-kissed even in the British climate. Cream contour, blush, and highlight are my makeup bag must-haves- with makeup revolution bright light highlighter being my absolute favourite. When it comes to skincare, I have never been someone to have a full routine. I like to keep it simple with a light moisturiser and of course, my Bondi Sands tinted SPF.
