Hello and welcome to Beautiful with Brains!
My name is Giorgia and I’m a 28 year old makeup junkie from Europe. I’ve always loved makeup and skincare and in my free time you can often find me at some cosmetic counter checking out the latest products. I especially love it when I find a great bargain!
The only thing that I probably love more than cosmetics is books. I am a very avid reader and read pretty much everything I can get my hands on. I also love shopping, travelling, art, history, spending time with my friends and anything pink!
I’ve started Beautiful with Brains in 2008 to share my passion for all things beauty with all of you. Here you will find product reviews, news of the latest products launches and collections, makeup tips and tricks, tutorials, FOTDs (I love my brights but don’t dislike neutrals either) information on skincare, haircare, cosmetics ingredients and much more.
I am particularly interested in cosmetic ingredients because I think it is important to know what we put on our skin (and hair) every day. Knowing more about ingredients allows us to choose the products that best target our concerns and prevent us from wasting money on those that just don’t work.
Unfortunately, there is a lot of misleading and twisted information about cosmetic ingredients online, some of which is quite scary and it’s not always easy to figure out what ingredients have an undeserved bad reputation and which ones are best to avoid. I’m doing lots of research on ingredients and sharing my findings, based on scientific research and studies, on the blog to help set the record straight and help you make an informed decision based on science, not fear.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come back soon.
