BEAUTY BLOG Nina's Beauty Journal


This is a place for you to keep tabs on all things Beauty related, with a few random categories thrown in here and there….fashion, models, media…absolutely anything.

After a lot of hard work and a very long road of being Beauty Editor for a mainstream publication, Beauty Journalism, co-ordinating shoots, published articles, training aspiring mua’s, mentoring my make up team, reviewing 100’s of beauty products, testing new innovative beauty regime’s and much more I’m sure I’ve missed out…..I came to the conclusion I have way too much info to keep just for a magazine, so decided to start blogging.

I won’t tell you everything I review is fantastic. I won’t tell you that all products sent to me to be reviewed are well worth buying.

I ‘will’ however tell you the truth….whether that brand new collagen booster actually ‘does’ boost your collagen, if that eye cream actually ‘does’ fade those bags and if you really should spend your pennies on some of the most marketed products and services around. Now and again, I’ll post ‘real’ images of new products I’ve tested out on myself so you can see what it really looks like without all the editing.

And if you have any questions about anything Beauty related or anything Fabulous at all….your more than welcome to contact me on the blog. I always blog on reader requests so if you need to know the top 5 eyeliners then you’ve come to the right place.
