When I get all dressed up for an event or festival, I am really enjoying going that extra mile with my makeup – and glitter is the perfect cherry on top! I have rediscovered my love of the crazy (you should have seen my makeup in my younger years!) & eccentric, & so finding Glitter Alchemy was like it was speaking to my very soul…
I used to have a mantra – “When in doubt, just add glitter.” This meant that I always try to see the good in every situation & would always try to bring my own kind of sparkle to wherever I am.

I am hoping to do a styled shoot with some of their products (they have sent me an idea of what they would like to do) & I am so super excited. These glitters literally get my heart racing & I can’t decide which I love the most… I will be placing an order soon & then you better beware – you are going to see the shimmer before you actually see me coming!
