In my travel makeup bag

I’ve mentioned before that I don’t use a makeup bag all that often – I have two large organisers that sit on a table in my beauty room, and I work from there. I recently went away for a week and had to pack a decent(ish) makeup bag for the…

It’s a wrap with Red Square Beauty

Don’t you just love it when other people do the nitty gritty little tasks on your behalf? I’m talking about the annoying little things. It might not be the same for you, but most of the annoyances in my life are admin-related mundane little tasks that I view as ‘unnecessary’…
