I realise I’m pretty late to the party with this, because Nadine Baggott is a very well established and respected British beauty editor, but I only discovered her YouTube channel this weekend! I proceeded to binge through an embarrassingly large number of her videos and tried to absorb every single little pearl of skincare wisdom that I could. She’s extremely knowledgeable but also communicates the science behind products and ingredients in layman’s terms so it’s easy to understand and therefore easy to remember.
Nadine is completely no-nonsense and famously honest about the procedures she’s had, including Botox and lip fillers, which is so refreshing in an age where most celebrities and beauty professionals like to pretend they’ve never had an injectable in their lives; something which baffles and annoys me no end.
