Beauty writer, Jane Cunningham has blogged as British Beauty Blogger for six years as well as writing regularly for print. Her reputation for straight talking, no nonsense reviews and first beauty news has made one of the most respected and popular beauty blogs in the UK.

I wanted to say if a product was rubbish and not just discretely ‘not mention it’.. I just felt consumers had a right to know if they were throwing their money away.

Jane's main interest is make-up - she is an avid collector of limited editions - but her knowledge sits across the board on hair care, skin care, fragrance and treatments, including non-surgical treatments such as fillers or botox.

I have some really bad raised pigmentation patches on my face, (I think it maybe called "hyper pigmentation??) mainly at the tops of cheeks. Any suggestions of how to get rid, or at the very least disguise them please? Here's hoping. Many thanks

Before my daughter's wedding I had never been one for 'treatments'. I walked through Fenwicks one day and was lured into having a free skin analysis by the Trueskin company. I knew the result of putting my face in one of those light boxes would be ghastly but the assistant was great and we discussed some laser treatment on my thread veins and various facials I could try. This resulted in a few months of treatment at half price (they often do deals) and a really private and understanding discussion of my 'needs'. The company has moved to Bluewater now and have an even better salon. It's incredibly private and I found non-pushy. I was so pleased that I went on to pay for laser treatment of the sun damage on my chest and back and am really impressed that the many, many huge dark freckles and age spots are gone.
I am nowadays so careful in the sun and still very pleased that I ventured into the first dept store freebie skin analysis. Trueskin is called Medispa at Bluewater it's the position Brown Salon. Very discreet and lovely staff.

A smear of Vaseline on eyebrows should keep them in place at night, or use a cleaned old mascara brush for a groomed look

Hi, my question is : I'm suffering badly with sweating through the menopause and having to take steroids regularly which means I get that horrible look of a sweaty red face, it literally looks like I have just stepped out of a shower some days!
I use a primer on my eyes and face before I apply my makeup but it literally last about five minutes before it's just slides off. Any suggestions?
