What My Mother Taught Me About Beauty

In honour of Mother's Day, we ran a competition on our Instagram to find out the beauty advice handed down from mothers. Here, our 5 winners share their mums’ advice with us all, proving that the basics of beauty stand the test of time.

“Always remove your make-up – even after a few sherries!”


“Use eye cream around the top and sides of my lips, as the skin is delicate like under the eyes.”


“Never have a tide mark when wearing foundation! This was in the 80s when foundation was suuuper thick.”


“My mum told me to wash my face every night and also to put my best face forward every day.”


“My mum told me to make a softening scrub for hands with olive oil and granulated sugar, and that was passed down from her mum.”
