Have you ever read a beauty blog? In 2015, it seems there are more people reading and taking advice from bloggers than there are actually buying beauty mags. The fact is, whether you’re looking for quirky style, an advocate of natural beauty or a glamour queen who’s a dab hand with a makeup brush, on the blogging scene there’s a role model for everyone to relate to.

We were impressed, and while it will probably take a whole lot of practice (and around 3 packs of makeup wipes) before we get anywhere near Neala’s standard, we’re going to have a real good go! More
