Hey you! And welcome to my blog!

I'm Melissa, I'm 25 and live deep in the hills in-between Manchester and Sheffield, where sheep are my neighbors and my cocker spaniel Polly steals my socks.

My obsession with all things beauty started off with buying the odd thing from a make-up counter. It was only once I had finished studying animal management and it dawned on me didn't quite want to shovel poop for the rest of my life. Luckily, I made friends with two wonderful make-up artists, Zak and Janine who encouraged me to follow my secret want of becoming a make-up artist myself.

Thanks to these inspiring people, my family, friends and a good kick up the backside, I'm now a qualified, professional make-up artist and loving every minute of it! I'm currently taking my studies further within media and theatrical make up.

I don't pretend to know a lot about beauty and I truly believe beauty is found in the simple things in life, not just a make-up bag. I hope that on this site, you'll find honest reviews, fun banter and maybe learn something new.

Please feel free to contact me, even if it's to say hi!
