Cheeky Girls Make Up: Behind The Scenes

Cheeky Girls Make Up: Behind The Scenes
Managed to get my hands on some behind the scenes pics of the Cheeky Girls’ shoot for their interview in the Mail on Sunday promoting their new cosmetic range and talking about their (horrendous) issues with anorexia.

And, I never want to be one of those people who need someone else to pluck their eyebrows. So,... Read More

Liz Jones on Beauty Halls

Liz Jones on Beauty Halls
Slightly baffled by Liz Jones’ confused rant on beauty halls today; which in the end didn’t amount to much about beauty halls, but the size of the samples she was offered, and the fact that she can’t read shampoo labels in the shower. She ‘hates’ the instruction leaflets that come with beauty creams, she ‘destests’... Read More
