We enjoy hearing your thoughts and appreciate all the feedback on our latest collection boxes and products available in the Build Your Own category. The LiB gang is constantly growing and that’s down to you guys and our pool of amazing beauty bloggers sharing the love. We’re a sucker for blogs and it’s so exciting when our fave bloggers share their must-have Latest in Beauty discoveries. We love it so much that we have decided to chat to one of our faves right here on the blog each month. For July’s Blogger of the Month, we caught up with Caitlin from Through The Mirror, who got her hands on a Beauty Guru beauty box that ‘blew her mind’.
QTell us a bit about your blog and what's hot right now...
AWhen I first started my blog it was primarily a beauty blog but as time progressed I found my interests shifting and changing! Now, you'll find a whole host of topics on my blog from beauty, lifestyle, blog tips and photography related posts.
QYour go to make-up look is...
AMy go-to makeup look at the moment is a full coverage base all year around, enough concealer to sink a battleship and then a matte neutral toned eye. I'm a sucker for a brown toned nude too!
QFavourite discovery from your latest LiB box?
AOoh, this is a really difficult one because I have repurchased the full size of two products already! I had been wanting to try the purity cleanser for the longest time along with the Oskia Mask but I'm always a little reluctant with higher end skincare because my skin is just so unpredictable. I LOVED these products and the minute I was coming to the end, both were repurchased!
QHidden gem in your beauty stash is...
AI couldn't live without my Mac Whirl lipstick! I have one in my car, one in my work desk and one in my makeup collection! If you are on the hunt for a full coverage foundation then Kat Von D lock it foundation has my heart, I repurchase this every single time!
QIf you could design a beauty collection, what would it be like?
AIf I was able to design my own makeup collection it would for sure be something to do with a base. I would want something that was the ultimate perfect full coverage foundation and concealer which would work a dream on troublesome skin! I have found full coverage foundations but I find when I have an acne breakout my skin becomes really textured and foundation just doesn't seem to work well with it!
QA song you're currently obsessed with:
AI'm obsessed with anything Ed Sheeran all day every day but a specific song I am loving has got to be Brazil - Declan McKenna!
QYour signature scent is....
AGhost! 100% has got to be Ghost (the original blue bottle one). It's one of the more affordable perfumes and I haven't been able to find anything I love more than that scent. I've worn that perfume since I was 14 and I still adore it!
QBlogging pet peeve?
AOhhhhhhhhhhh this has got to be the follow unfollow game flooding the blogging community at the moment! Just don't do it? It's the most annoying thing on the planet haha!
QDo you have a funny make-up memory?
AIn year 8 I once shaved my sideburns off...I realised what a massive mistake that was after I did the first one so I proceeded to do the second one too! I used a razor too so I just had this sharp cut line and I looked a total numpty! I will never go near there with a razor ever again!
QBest piece of beauty advice you've ever been given?
AAlways wash your makeup off before bed! As soon as I read that sleeping in your makeup can age your skin 7 times faster I have never done it since! Keep some baby wipes next to your bed for those times you do forget and you just need to get it off!
