What's The Beau(Tee)? | RuPaul To Launch Makeup Collection

Now I know what you're thinking, "She done already done had herses". After all, RuPaul was the first face of MACs VIVA GLAM campaign back in 1994. However, let's be real, that wasn't a true makeup collection and it's very existence has only helped wet our appetite for more...

Beauty Bosses | Part One

There is nothing I love more than a beauty brand owed and operated by women. So, I wanted to put some great beauty bosses in the spotlight. After all, Kweens need to be celebrated...

Pump Up The Volume

Being a fine-haired bitch, I have tried an insane number of products that claim to deliver volume and thickness. Some of them failed completely but others have seriously impressed me. So, for all my fellow flat-haired-hoes out there, I've decided to share my favourite classics, as well as some new - and knockout - discoveries...

Interview: Yulia Rorstrom Founder of Duck & Dry

Image result for Yulia Rorstrom

Yulia Rorstrom is a beauty entrepreneur with some serious balls. With a passion for beauty and business, she decided to leave her career in finance to create the modern London styling destination we know as Duck & Dry. Her life-changing decision paid off - not only has Duck & Dry been an amazing success, it has lead Yulia to create a range of fab hair products.

I recently got the chance to grill Yulia on everything from her career highlights to beauty must-haves! Here's how it went down...

Weekly Worship | bareMinerals, Buxom, NeoStrata & Skyn Iceland

After a few months of congested skin, I've been focusing on cleansing correctly. I now double cleanse my skin every night - regardless or whether I'm wearing much makeup. My first cleanse is done with the bareMinerals Total Cleansing Oil (£22 feelunique.com) - a miracle makeup remover that takes everything off in a matter of seconds. Unlike other cleansing oils I'm used to, this one has a beautiful aromatherapy scent that helps get you relaxed and ready for bed. A surprisingly small amount of product is needed per use and the oil rinses off easily and completely, ensuring that no nasty residue is left behind. For my second cleanse, I use my favourite Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser (£24.99 feelunique.com).

The Beauty Myth | Washing Hair In Very Hot Water

False. I've always been guilty of washing my hair with very hot water. Unlike some, this isn't because I think it'll provide a more intensive wash, but simply because I love hot showers and only wash my hair when I'm in one.

Review: YSL Instant Moisture Glow

If you have your eyes on the beauty world, you'll know that YSL has been putting a big focus on complexion. So far this year, the French beauty giant has launched the Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Foundation, Touche Eclat Colour Correcting Blur Primers and Instant Moisture Glow. I recently got my hands on the latter and have been putting it through its paces over the last few weeks...

The Beauty Myth: You Should Cut Your Cuticles

False. Your cuticles are there for a reason - and a good one at that. They protect the developing nail and surrounding skin from bacteria, so cutting your cuticles is definitely not a good idea. Doing so will heavily increase the chance of infection and, in case you didn't know, infections in and around the nail bed are not only unsightly, they are very painful.

What's The Beau(Tee)? | Ardell Introduces Makeup Collection

I've said it before and I'll goddamn say it again, Ardell is the ultimate false lash brand. There are a wide range of styles, at affordable prices, and every lash band is thin and flexible - making application easy and the finished look more natural. My love for the 45-year-old brand is so strong, that I've always longed for (and if I'm honest, expected) Ardell to launch a full makeup range. Luckily for me, and the entire world, I'm now able to tell you that my wishes have come true. Ardell has a makeup collection and it is available right now...

Ask TBI: Looking After Oily But Dehydrated Skin

Question: Could you please recommend a skin care regime or even just a cleanser and moisturiser for oily but dehydrated skin? I have spent a small fortune searching for the right products without much luck! Some cleansers can be too harsh and some moisturisers too rich - Sinead.

Ingredients 101: Ferulic Acid


WTF: Ferulic acid is found in the cell walls of plants such as rice, wheat, peanuts, apples and oranges. It is an antixodiant that plays a key role in protecting and preserving plants - it is able to destroy several different types of free radicals, including superoxide, hydroxyl radical and nitric oxide.

Behind The Brand | IMAGE

Date of Birth: 2003

Founding Mother: Janna Ronert

History: IMAGE Skincare started out of Janna Ronert's tiny apartment in 2003. She was an aesthetician who was battling rosacea but unable to find adequate products on the market that would provide real results and treat the problem. So, like all good beauty entrepreneurs, she decided to create her own cosmeceutical brand. She poured blood, sweat and tears into creating IMAGE and her first collection was Vital C, which remains the brand's top seller today.

Scents To Get Her Love Struck

Valentine's Day is around the corner and, although I hate it, I know some of y'all will be looking for gift ideas. Now fuck chocolate - us bitches need to get our summer bodies asap - and forget flowers - they last for all of one week and cost a stupid amount of money. You'd be better taking the £60 you were going to spend on roses and buying your bae a fragrance. After all, who doesn't love a beautiful scent that will last?! So I've rounded up some of the best fragrances to buy your boo this VDay...

Korean Beauty Game Strong

Korea packs some dope exports, like Samsug, Korean BBQ Chicken and K-pop. However none of them compare to Korean beauty products. K-beauty has been the buzz word in the industry for some time now and this longevity should make one thing clear, Korean beauty is worth the hype....

Behind The Brand | Nudestix

Date of Birth: 2014

Founding Mothers: Jenny, Taylor and Ally Frankel

History: Nudestix is an innovative beauty brand that was the brainchild of sisters Ally and Taylor Frankel... when they were just teenagers (before Kylie Jenner, I should add!). The girls were fans of effortless, natural looking makeup. They longed for colour cosmetics that accentuated their best features, rather than make them look overdone or artificial, so they set out creating their own.

Fake It Till You Make It

Although life can bless you with some great physical attributes... it can also deprive you of others. As we all know, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh the fuck away. Luckily there are products and treatments out there that give us the chance to makeup and fakeup... and I'm not talking filters.
