Welcome to the Bee Hive!
My name is Sylvia (aka Beauty Bee) and I am a 29 year old, travel loving Polish Australian lass who lives in Sydney. I love to explore and of course – I love anything to do with skin care and makeup! My day job isn’t related to the beauty industry (I finished degrees in Security/Criminology) so this blog is my creative outlet and my escape from everyday responsibilities 🙂
My skin journey started back in high school when I started experiencing acne at the age of 13. I was lucky enough to see a Dermatologist right away, which meant that I was incredibly concious about what I put on my skin (what skincare to use) from quite an early age. The complex nature of our largest organ is a bit of mystery in some parts as we are all unique, but the journey can be easier to navigate if you know what to look for in products and how to protect your skin from the elements.
This blog gives me joy, so I really hope you find something within it that will brighten your day and give you inspiration. Additionally, I love criminal mysteries (I’m a true crime podcast addict!), travelling, food (especially Korean) beautiful trinkets and tea! I hope to dig a little deeper into skin care products and their ingredients within this blog. Makeup should be fun, adventurous and make you feel fierce!
While I love beautifully, crafted things and believe that an attractive aesthetic adds more wonder to life – life is messy and I do not wish to portray it as perfect. As such, my photos aren’t Photoshopped and while I appreciate beautiful compositions (especially in photos) sometimes the irregularities give more meaning and honesty to a photo or article.
Life is messy. Life is beautiful.
