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!
