"Last year I attended a beauty tutorial for a makeup brand that will remain unnamed. Over the course of an hour and a half we used approximately fifteen products on our faces, working towards a “natural look.” I was exhausted and annoyed. But more so I was shocked by a response from a brand rep when I said I didn’t enjoy the process of applying makeup. I simply said I didn’t have an hour to spend in front of the mirror every morning. She was completely beside herself that I would even admit that. She said we should all take time to admire our beauty. I said “if you’re spending an hour on your face every morning, you aren’t admiring your beauty, you’re creating another human being entirely, which I have no problem with. But it ain’t for me.” Obviously that conversation ended there. But for me, it really made me think about this what I wanted from makeup. I wanted something that was easy, fast and not overwhelming. I just wanted a slightly enhanced version of myself. A few months later I was introduced to @Code8beauty and I felt like the universe was listening to my every beauty wish. Their beauty balm instantly became my cult product - something I knew I would never again live without. Their red lippie- personalised for me- goes everywhere I go. My code8 beauty bag has half a dozen products in it and it takes me five minutes to apply everything, as you’ll see in the video. I genuinely, from the body of my beauty loving heart, can’t recommend this brand enough for anyone that is looking for an efficient and effective makeup routine that you can count on every morning! #code8beauty #imcode8 #findyourcode"
