I will admit to being a huge novice when it comes to make up, and> beauty products.  I have used the same products for years and> it is something I have never really taken much care over.  However I have recently found a bit of a love for skin care and> that has developed into an interest in beauty and> make up.  I think having my make up done professionally for my wedding was one of the things that sparked my interest.  I felt amazing on my wedding day and> saw what some well applied products could do for me.

Applying LipstickMy make up collection leaves a lot to be desired and> I am ashamed to admit the state of some of my eyeshadow palettes. So for Christmas I decided to add a few pieces to my collection, and> throw out the old. And with experimentation and> learning new ways of applying products in mind I have found myself following more and> more beauty bloggers. And taking inspiration from them.

I thought therefore it might be fun to share some of my current favourites with you.

Em Sheldon Em blogs about all things beauty, lifestyle, travel, fashion and> fitness.  Em seems really down to earth, and> friendly always responding to tweets or comments which is great to see as she has over 70k followers on Instagram alone! I love reading her blog and> following her social media for inspiration.

Eyeshadow Pallete and> Brush Set” width=”150″ height=”150″>BeautybytheBunny</a></strong> A relatively new find for me Angela’s make up collection is incredible.  Just wow! Check out her Instagram to see what I mean.  Her blog strap line of Be your own kind of beautiful really resonates with me and> I love that she is a Northern lass as well! After just a couple of weeks following Angela I have a huge list of beauty buys to save up for!</p><div class='mailmunch-forms-in-post-middle' style='display: none !important;'></div>
<p><strong><a href=Bubbly Bex I met Bex at a blogger event last year, and> as another Manchester blogger she is fab! Bex is an absolute gem, I was thrilled when she agreed to do a make up tutorial as part of my Ode2fitmas advent campaign.  You can find out more about that here: Ode2fitmas 14.  Bex’s make up always looks fabulous, and> I have learnt so much from her. Including how to master winged eyeliner, although I still need more practice on that one!
