Travel beauty essentials!

Travelling is a big part of my job as a Fashion Editor/Blogger and as glamorous as that may sound, it really isn’t.

I’m very pleased that the renowned beauty blogger, Merium from CakeFace Makeup (feared by many companies for her honest appraisals of their products), agreed to collaborate with me on this particular post. We decided that CakeFace Makeup who has a lot of experience in testing and reviewing make-up products would focus on what she knows best whereas It’s Beyond My Control will be writing about 7 top beauty products (that I can’s stop buying as It’s Beyond My Control).
