Hey there! I’m so glad you would like to hear more about me and MissCosmeticBlogger. I’m Beth, aka MissCosmeticBlogger: the owner and writer of the blog you are currently reading. I am a self confessed beauty addict who veers towards makeup at every turn. If you ever set foot in my room, I can almost guarantee the first things you will see is makeup. It litters my room (in a good way,) it will be in almost every draw, on every surface, and that’s when it’s tidy. I am currently 18 and studying English Language and Linguistics at the University of Southampton. So, I now split my time between two makeup covered rooms, and lug my camera on a train journey every now and then to create content for the blog.
I recently moved over to WordPress, with the help of Pipdig, before that I had been blogging on Blogger since late 2012. If you’re looking from any posts from back then, I’m afraid you’ll be largely out of luck. After my move over to WordPress, I spent hours reformatting and editing posts so they wouldn’t look strange with the new template. I also decided that it was time to get rid of a few posts I was less than proud of. These were mainly the ones that were under 300 words, and had been very quickly churned out, back when, blogwise at least, I went for quantity not quality – hopefully you will agree this has now changed. That’s not to say however, that no awful photos remain. Look hard enough back in the old days of MissCosmeticBlogger and you can see some shockers.
As I blog about a lot of beauty products, I feel it might help you understand why I like some products, and hate others, if I give you a quick low down on my skin type and hair.
Firstly, my skin is incredibly dry, my current skincare routine is as follows:
AM: Soap&Glory Peaches&Clean Cleanser, Lush Eau Roma Water, The Ordinary Hylauronic Acid, Origins GinZing Moisturiser.
PM: Clinique Pep-Start Cleanser, Soap&Glory Peaches&Clean Cleanser, Pixi Glow Tonic, Lush Eau Roma Water, The Ordinary Hylauronic Acid, GlamGlow ThirstyMud or Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
Obviously, this is subject to change as I am forever trying out new product to find the dream routine. I will update the above accordingly, when I finish or product or find a better one.
My hair on the other hand is naturally a dark blonde and not dyed. It can get very frizzy and loves to matt up if I don’t brush it enough. It’s also wavy, though I keep it in plaits at night to make it more so. To tackle the frizz and knotting I use a TangleTeezer and a hair oil after washing.
