What’s in your Back To School GLOSSYBOX?

Our picks for this September are absolute beauty essentials – stay tuned for our beauty masterclasses throughout the month. Glossies, don’t be a beauty school dropout…

Get perfect, HD brows with your first sneak peek

If you are pushed for time, defining your eyebrows is a must. This product will not only get you HD brows at home, but they’ll stay in place all day and night. Keep an eye on the blog for a brow masterclass with our Resident Makeup Artist Lucinka, who’ll give you all the tips and tricks you need to get that Insta perfect brow shape and most importantly, the shape that suits you.

Enhance your pout with your second sneak peek

This second sneak peek will enhance your lips to get a perfect, fuller pout while keeping your lipstick in place. Lucinka will also be showing you how to not only make your lips look bigger, but also how to get that perfect cupid’s bow shape. Keep an eye on the blog!

Discover the wonders of charcoal for your skin

Activated charcoal is not new on the beauty scene but it’s recently exploded and there’s no wonder why – it works wonders to deep cleanse your skin and minimise your pores. Watch out for our video tutorial showing you how to use this wonder product that will revive your skin, just when you need it most.

You will have to wait for the reveal of the next 3 products in your Back To School September box. In the meantime…
