I've always had a passion for beauty, so in 2013 I set up my own personal blog to discuss all my thoughts on everything cosmetics related. Several years later and my blog is growing quicker than ever. I upload four times a week and have built a strong following of beauty addicts, all looking to hear about the latest reviews and beauty holy grails.

It was only in 2016 that I decided to pursue my love of beauty writing more, and embarked on a journey of freelance writing. I have since worked on a combination of creative features to more SEO-heavy product descriptions, all with quick deadlines.

I'm only at the beginning of my freelancing journey but with years of knowledge and beauty writing behind my back I'm sure it'll be a long and extensive career.

How To Wear A Statement Red Lip

I don't wear red lipstick very much throughout the year, but as soon as it turns December I'm like hell to the yes. This is only a relatively recent thing though, for years I just didn't think red lipstick suited me and found it all a bit too high maintenance, however over the last few festive seasons I've really discovered how to make red work for me.
