I'm a beauty fanatic and have worked in the industry for 5 years. The combination of my Architecture and Business Degree means I'm a sucker for packaging BUT stay loyal to products that perform. The creative element of new and emerging brands pulls me in, but the effectiveness is what I rave to my friends (and you) about. In my spare time, I'm either 'Nettflixing' or at the beach with my puppy.
