Instagram Love

I do believe in the world of social media that sharing is caring. So with that in mind here are a few of the Instagram accounts I never tire of seeing. 

Gracie Charteris MUA

This girl is a personal friend of mine, and I just love her to bits! I’ve only known her a short time – really – but her Positive Mental Attitude to makeup and the beauty industry is truly infectious, and inspiring! Her help and advice (in many ways) was essential to me whilst we worked together in Selfridges, and if you ever need a glam partner in crime, look no further! #glamlifeforever ❤️

Eva Telejko

The skills of this woman are IN-SANE! Another amazing artist I met while working in Selfridges Birmingham, she describes herself as a ‘makeup architect’, and I couldn’t agree more, Eva is certainly not average in any way! And what stunning blue eyes! 💙

Girl With No Job

Just for laughs, I always giggle when I see the meme’s on this page. Too much truth coming from one person! ✌🏼️

NY On Air

Put simply, the most beautiful images and videos taken from the NY On Air helicopter. They offer trips for tourists and having done one, this is just tearing me until I get to go back!  They can sometimes be found in Vegas and Miami and other stunning cities, but it’s all about the Manhatten skyline for me. 💜

Mixed Gems Beauty

For those who don’t know, Rose is a blogger and the Beauty Personal Shopper in Selfridges Birmingham. When it was first announced to us that she was going to have that job, I was star struck! I had been reading her blog for a couple of years and couldn’t think of anyone better to do that job, and was just so excited to meet her! In my opinion she has done an amazing job with putting the Birmingham beauty hall on the map and long may it continue! 💛

Hachi Gori

Gotta get a cute one in here as well! Like, seriously, I can’t even!! I think the picture says it all! 💚

Charlotte Tilbury Makeover & Haul | The Beauty Spot

I’ve had some Selfridges gift vouchers burning a hole in my pocket since my birthday in June last year, and I finally spent them (albeit back in November – I’m such a bad blogger!)!

I had decided I wanted to spend them in the beauty hall – unsurprisingly – and I had wanted to try some of the Charlotte Tilbury stuff for too long! I finally found an occasion to get myself booked for a makeup ready for a night out celebrating the OH’s birthday! 

I had a few products in mind that I wanted to pick up, but I’m quite easily swayed so I knew I might change my mind! Below are my before and after images and my purchases. Reviews will be coming once I’ve had chance to properly use the products. 




 I absolutely loved my eyes! Aj – my amazing artist – used The Dolce Vita palette on me and although I didn’t purchase on the day, it is now in my possession!! This image doesn’t really do the sparkly-ness justice but I loved trying out colours that I wouldn’t normally use! 

I loved the experience of going to the counter and being ‘done’, most will know it’s normally me that’s doing the making up so to be in the seat was lovely! I knew I’d be in good hands with anyone from Charlotte Tilbury Birmingham and I definitely wasn’t disappointed!
Hope you like my choices!

Have you tried Charlotte Tilbury? What are your fave products?
