I often find myself zooming straight to the beauty pages of Grazia and Stylist – pouring over the contents and then wishing that that section was longer. Finally, I have found a magazine which fills that gap in that make up magazine shaped hole in my life – FaceON.
Since I got into make up as a job, I have been on the lookout for a magazine for make up artists, but the one I keep buying seems to be sponsored by a particular make up shop, which doesn’t help me when I’m interested in hearing about new products from a variety of brands.
FaceON is like any other women’s magazine, but in reverse – mostly make up, with a tiny bit of the ‘other’ – fashion, lifestyle etc, and I like it. It comes out quarterly and is priced at £4.95 which I think is very reasonable considering there are 115 pages to it.
Whether you are into make up, fashion or photography – this would be a fab magazine to add to your reading list – I’ve taken some photos to give you an idea of the kind of feel of the magazine…
This is the front cover, complete with a free set of Eldora false lashes.
For non-make up artists there are also some more wearable looks included, with step by step guides.
And then, there’s the little bit of ‘other’…
FaceON reminds me of a make up book that I’d pay more than £4.95 for. I love that there is such a variety of work inside, coming from a variety of artists, using a variety of products. It’s made of good durable paper too – mine’s going to slot into my bookshelf and will be used for reference. Definitely the best make up magazine I’ve picked up to date!
I’ve decided to subscribe – if you want to too, check out their website: http://www.faceonmagazine.co.uk/subscribe/
Have you seen FaceON before? What did you think of it? Are there any other make up mags you read?
