Two years ago I lost someone very special to me - my precious Mum. She always had a real zest and sparkle for life and a love for all things makeup and beauty. She suffered from a life-limiting illness for as long as I can remember yet still got up on her worst days, applied her makeup, blow dried her hair and always had her nails impeccably manicured even if she needed someone else to help her with them.

Being a makeup artist myself, I know I inherited my love of makeup from her, and there's no doubt that she was the inspiration behind Glossed By Claire.

In fact, one of our first ever lash styles, "Rita", was named after her, and is still one of our bestsellers now!

I learned from an early age that no matter how you're feeling or how bad a day you've had, the right makeup has the power to make you feel like you can take on the day, feel confident and like the most beautiful version of yourself.

I believe that everyone deserves to feel beautiful, to feel special and to feel empowered by that beauty. Everyone deserves to treat themselves too every once in a while! I wanted every Glossed By Claire order to feel like a gift when it arrives - even if it is just a gift to yourself, and that's very much the experience I hope everyone has when they order from us!

Love,

Claire xx
