THIS MONTH ON BEAUTY BIBLE

Time to sharpen your (brow and lip) pencils for the new term!

So… it’s the new term after the long summer hols. We all had a gorgeous time with a real rest and very much hope you did too.

Now we’re turning round in our baskets, organising our pens and getting ready to – ummm – do some work!

Actually, we love autumn with its glorious colours – that would be trees and make-up of course. A few demands to cope with, like haystack hair, fading tans and scuzzy nails from gardening (and riding in Sarah’s case). But we have the technology! And we’ll be sharing the secrets with you, of course. (That’s in the job description…)

There’s a whole raft of fabulous new weekly prize draws, the products Beauty Bible Loves – new every day, advice on your beauty dilemmas and lots of features. So we’ll be putting on a hair mask, a face one too (both at the same time is double-duty beauty) – then a bit of lippy (time to invest in a new one) and bronzer, and we’re good to go into Autumn!
