Beauty Best Friend is a UK beauty blog written by me, Laura. I have been passionate about makeup for as long as I can remember (too long!). So I decided to set up this beauty blog to share my product reviews and beauty tips with others – the same way I would share my makeup knowledge and recommendations with my best friends. I will always give honest reviews, and I have tested all of the products myself. I am a qualified beauty therapist, although I have never worked as one. I am a jewellery designer and live in Yorkshire, UK, with my husband and 3 cats. When I am not testing beauty products and blogging about them I enjoy home improvements, baking and all kinds of creative crafts. I have blue eyes, wavy shoulder length blonde hair and combination skin that tans fairly easily. I love my GHDs and am on a mission to find the perfect pink lipstick!
