June BBC Day 26: Best Beauty Advice You've Been Given

I've been given plenty of beauty advice in my day, often by well meaning friends and family. When I was only a little nipper, my Gran told me "Too much lipstick makes you look like a tart!!", which was hardly constructive, but definitely memorable!

As I got older, and got into secondary school, we were told by a teacher "Tinted moisturizer is more beneficial than foundation, so we will let the girls away with that if you want to have a little coverage...". Now, while I was in school, I wore absolutely NO makeup, bar maybe a little eyeliner, so that didn't apply to me!

As you guys know (since I never shut up about it) I wear very little makeup, on a day to day basis. That's because the best advice I was given was to let my skin breathe. Don't constantly clog your pores with heavy make-up, don't put on a full face for cleaning the house, and don't for the love of god, please don't go to bed with makeup on!!

The best advice I could give somebody is to remember that nothing is more beautiful than a confident smile. Even if you have to fake it, you will find yourself less bothered by how people see you, if you can even pretend to see yourself in a "I am ... and I am a beautiful princess!!" kind of light!!

You are beautiful (even if you don't believe me, I wont lie to you!)



  1. Moisturiser is my number one tip and rule but apart from that I'm still not actually hugely educated on makeup, despite the fact that I'm 30 - I only bought my first makeup brushes this year! I don't wear makeup around the house at all, pointless x

  2. Mine always was, and always will be, don't tweeze your eyebrows down to nothing. I didn't listen to that one as much as I should have and have always regretted it. Strong brows frmae your face and just make you look so pulled together.

  3. Awww that was a lovely read, felt like a motivator for myself:P I am a princess!!!! I always prefer the natural makeup look, shine that inner beauty and whatnot!
