Natural Beauty
Not too long ago, I was fortunate enough to be invited to hang out with some of the wonderful faces behind the brands at Nutribeauty.

Nutribeauty is an online beauty mecca practically overloaded with the best in natural beauty. In their own words, they are ‘passionate about providing health, wellbeing and beauty’. All the usual luxury without any of the synthetic stuff.

There was truly something for everyone, and many brands which I had never heard of! Spirit of Beauty, for one, chooses to aid women into feeling fantastic from the inside out, with carefully chosen flower essences.

Then came the Bee Venom mask! Created by the lovely Deborah Mitchell of Heaven Skincare, Bee Venom is the not-so-secret source of the Dutches of Cornwall’s disappearing wrinkles. A pleasant, strange experience I urge you to read more about.

She also created something called “SOS Oil” which can easily be described as a beauty regime in a bottle. Who knew natural beauty was this powerful across the board?!

Antipodes, a brand which I already love, talked about some of their best products – Deliverance Hand Cream, Savior balm etc – and still managed to impress me with the sheer honesty and scientific investment into sharing the percentage figures for the efficacy of their heavenly products. Can’t say enough good things about their products!

Suti was also filled with love. The creators, Suzannah Jenkins and Tina Steadman, combined their names to create a skincare range to ‘feed your skin’. Homeopathy is the name of the game, here. Their oils literally smell good enough to eat and have a sensuous, refined feel to them which remedy almost everything.

These definitely weren’t the only brands on offer, and truly just a small fraction of some incredibly luxurious offerings. Must. Visit. Now.

Jessica Stam
I have raved and raved about Jessica Stam for years. Almost ten years, actually, from her fresh-faced entrance into the industry as Steven Meisel‘s muse. The Canadian model is a fashion fixture with one of the most striking faces working today.

Lucky for us? One of my favourite websites, Into The Gloss, delved into Stam’s impressively low-key beauty regime. Low-key for a model, anyway. Her secrets?

  • Balm! Added to the eyelids for a sheen, or her eyelashes if she foregoes mascara.
  • Old Spice. Yep, the men’s deodorant.
  • She adores Egyptian Magic“>Egyptian Magic. (But seriously, this product is absolute gold.)
  • Viviscal supplements. Both to keep her hair healthy and help it grow!
  • Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner. The “Hello Hydration” range fools even industry experts!
  • She eats “whatever [she] wants”. We call that the model gene. (Granted, she does so “in moderation” and works out.)
