It's late at night and I am trawling through beauty sites, heading from one post to the next. I then stumbled across 'Beauty Heaven' - what a name for starters! This site is managed and contributed to by professionals in the beauty industry and has product reviews, how tos and advice, as well as news and other interesting articles.
I am really looking forward to exploring this site more - will definitely be trying there how tos and contributing to reviews of products (you can do this by becoming a member - read more here).
There is something for everyone here, and if I hadn't been clicking on random links leading to new posts I would never have found this amazing piece of advice I just read from Bobbi Brown the founder and creative director behind Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. What captured me was "I've always believed in showing women what's right about them, instead of what's wrong" , such a simple sentiment but so wise! Dress and style yourself to highlight the aspects you love - you will feel amazing and that will show! To read Bobbi's interview with Beauty Heaven click here.
I then headed to Bobbi's Australian webpage and found this philosophy echoed in the opening lines of her story, "makeup is a way for a woman to look and feel like herself, only prettier and more confident." If you have some time, the story of how she started in the industry in America and formed her company is pretty fascinating (click the link - Bobbi's Story). I had no idea her breakthrough involved an American Vogue cover, Naomi Campbell and selling 100 lipsticks in her first day of retail.
When I was travelling in the USA I picked up a Bobbi Brown eyeliner product and have been waiting for a special occasion to try it out. This weekend I will definitely be doing some makeup trials with it... and if I love it, will expand my collection of products.
