Welcome to the third in my “Beauty Stars of 2018” series! The first and second parts are here and here, if you missed them. PART 3: MAKEUP (EYES & LIPS) Brows Winner: Glossier Boy Brow – £14.00 Another point for Glossier here: Boy Brow really is the simplest of things which manages to achieve an awful lot.

Welcome to the second in my “Beauty Stars of 2018” series! The first part is here, if you missed it. Without further waffle – on we go!
