Priming: What does it mean and is it worth the extra step?

March 30, 2017

Primer is one of those beauty items that we have all been told we need but many still mention their confusion with whether it’s necessary or not. Let us tell you the truth … it can be a crucial step with the look, feel and longevity of your makeup! We all have different skin types and with that comes primers to suit them: For those with oil skin, a silica-based primer is great as it absorbs excess moisture and oil which prevents it from coming up and breaking down the makeup on the surface of your skin. For those with...

REVEALING MY AUTHENTIC SELF

January 2, 2017

For as long as I can remember I’ve been big. I have this memory of being 8 years old and tearfully asking my relatives at Christmas if I was fat – and being horrified by their reply, which only had the best of intentions but had the absolute opposite effect: “Don’t worry Hilary, it’s just baby fat!” ……….What?!?!?!

Welcome to Hilary Holmes Makeup

July 17, 2016

Hilary Holmes Makeup was born from a really organic place. Driven by my desire to step out of the comfort of 9-5 & follow my dreams. Once I committed there was no turning back & I never questioned that it wasn’t my path. I swore to fulfil my hearts desires whatever it takes! This past year has been beyond busy for the business, using my love for makeup to connect with incredible women & empower them to see their own beauty.
