Best In Beauty 2015
2015, the year of glossy skin, the year of Kylie Jenner lips and the year of contour. 2015 has been an exciting year for the beauty industry with plenty of new releases each month and some revolutionising new trends. Being a total beauty junkie, I’ve tried and tested many different products throughout the year, many I have fallen in love with and will be using forever and others I won’t be rushing back to use again any time soon. The beauty world is an exciting place to be apart of today with skin changing formulas and makeup that simply enhances your natural beauty. For me, 2015 was the year I really discovered the right products that work for me and the look I want to achieve; I became obsessed with glowy skin, champagne eyes, red lips and a tonne of highlight. To kickstart my 2015 Best In Beauty series, here’s a special mention to the brands that have changed my view on beauty, how I apply makeup today and how I look after my skin. .
