I began dabbling in makeup after high-school (surprisingly late for a now full-fledged makeup junkie!) I learnt how to achieve various makeup looks from watching other Youtube beauty videos (and thus, paving the way to eventually developing my own channel) I especially love dramatic, fancy dress makeup because it's so fun to transform into different characters!
I studied Commerce at uni and after graduating from my Bachelors Degree, I went on to study Honours in Marketing and Management. bellabox has allowed me to combine my university degree with my passion for makeup – a match made in heaven!
Lucy's current beauty obsessions:
I can't get enough of the new Revlon Lip Butters, the shades are gorgeous and they are super moisturising! I'm also loving Bloom's Cream Blush Duo, it's a great 2-in-1 product with a gorgeous shimmery pink blush and an illuminiser and they blend into the skin beautifully. When I go out, I love dramatising my makeup looks with falsies and I just recently discovered the amazing Velour Lashes. They are cruelty-free false eyelashes made from mink fur (gently brushed from little live minks) - they feel so natural and comfortable that I forget they're not my real lashes!
Lucy's favourite bellabox products:
As mentioned in my recent Fox in the Box article - I was over the moon when I started working at bellabox and saw that we stocked OCC Lip Tars! These little tubes of pigmented goodness are my go-to lip product whenever I'm getting ready for a night out and I love how you can mix them to create custom shades. A little goes a long, long way!
I line my eyes with liquid liner everyday, so I was so happy to discover the amazing Eye of Horus Liquid Define Eyeliner. The pen style of the liner makes it so easy to quickly and accurately line my eyes in the mornings and the fine tip lets me wing my eyes with no fuss. The smudge-proof formula really does stay put all day long!
I suffer from eczema so my skin is super sensitive and can easily react to skincare products. I thought I would never find a suitable cleanser until I was introduced to Planet Eve Facial Cleansing Oil by bb's Senior Brand Manager Sam. I was apprehensive at first but I was amazed after using it for the first time! It's natural and organic (so suitable for my skin) and leaves from skin feeling clean, fresh and hydrated every night!
