The only red lipstick I’d wear

Glynis BarberBeauty, Make Up 2 Comments

I’ve always adored red lipstick. It’s such an empowering colour and extremely chic and seductive. It says you’re someone to be reckoned. But as much as I adore it…. Red lipstick has never suited me The full-lipped goddesses can carry it off and look magnificent, but for those of us with smaller lips, it’s more of a challenge. It can …

My Fractora Firm treatment

Glynis BarberBeauty, Treatments Leave a Comment

A few years ago, I was regularly doing various radio frequency treatments and, in my opinion, they had a profound affect on my skin.

Why I love the ARK skincare ethos

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 4 Comments

One thing that’s important to consider as we choose what skincare to use, is to ask “what does our skin need at this moment in time”. That may seem pretty obvious, but it’s surprising how often people will keep using the same products for years or use products for issues they don’t actually have. As we age our skin changes …
