I’ve talked about it on the blog before, but if I have a couple of spare minutes, I love watching beauty videos on YouTube. I find it so relaxing to watch someone else do their make-up and talk about the products they like, that it’s one of my favourite things to snuggle up on the sofa with a hot drink and watch Essie Button, Miss Glamorazzi & Co do their thing.
I follow ‘beauty gurus’ (that’s what fan girls half my age call them) from all over the world, which means that I often fall in love with beauty products that aren’t available in the UK. Don’t worry there, there are still ways to get your hands on them. You can, of course, ask friends or family to pick up a product or two for you when they visit the USA, but let’s be honest? People don’t usually travel more than once or twice a year and once a woman has set their eye on something, they want it now and not in 7 months when the next family trip to Disney World is on the maps.
Online beauty websites such as Beauty Encounter are a great alternative because you can shop for your favourite products from the comfort of your home and buy everything your heart desires from low to high end beauty make-up, skin care and perfumes to accessories, hair care and gifts. I’ve only recently discovered the website, but I have absolutely fallen in love with it – not only because its huge range of brands and products, but also because you get amazing deals. Americans do love a bargain and on top of the perfume sale and the amazing offers in the beauty section you can also add coupons to your shopping basket, which makes this website a true goldmine for any make-up lover.
