Faceon: A Magazine for MUAs and Beauty Fanatics

Now here's a little beaut I stumbled across in WHSmith not too long ago, Faceon magazine, a magazine for makeup artists. Don't get me wrong I'm no MUA whatsoever, I just love playing with makeup, pretending to know what I'm doing and offering all of the advice and tips that I've learned from reading Blogs and watching YouTube videos to my friends with similar interests.

I was really excited to see this on the shelf, not least due to the free Sigma mini blending brush but because there's a distinct lack of magazines in the UK dedicated to all things makeup and skincare...publishers take note. I get all of my advice, product launches and inspiration from fellow bloggers but it was nice to read a magazine dedicated entirely to makeup. This issue of Faceon, their twelfth, is the first to hit the UK and if this is anything to go by, I'm excited to see what comes next.

The magazine is very much a mixed bag of beauty, there are interviews with famous MUAs, products galore, fabulous hair pieces, and lots and lots of inspiration. I'm currently on a personal quest of getting better with my eyeshadows and Faceon gave me a lot of inspiration for colours and looks to recreate. I didn't want to photograph the whole magazine for you, just some pages I loved the most. This spread at the very top entitled 'Travels of a Daydreamer' is very much my thing, rabbits, picnics, floaty dresses and dreamy makeup...perfection! I'm also in love with the brights in the last photo above, definitely something I'd love to try out for my next night out on the town, and the photo in the middle details the Sigma wash mitt for cleaning your brushes, I'd definitely love to try that out.

So if you're a beauty fanatic like me but are not a professional MUA I'd still recommend checking this magazine out. I definitely can't wait for the next issue!

Faceon is priced at £5.95 and is available exclusively in WHSmith, and 88 other countries around the world.

  5. This looks fantastic! Marie Claire used to do a beauty magazine years ago. x

  6. It looks good, but £5.85 is pretty steep for a magazine [or maybe I'm behind on my magazine pricing, it's been a while]

  7. Never heard of this mag before! Quite expensive but I would definitely buy it for a good freebie like the Sigma brush! xx

  8. Well this sounds pretty good I'll have to see if they have one in town http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/11021401/sparkles-of-light
