Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending a beauty brunch hosted by the author of cult beauty book, Eat Beautiful and world-famous make-up artist, Wendy Rowe. In collaboration with Good Roots London and accompanied by a conversation with Vogue beauty writer and Beauty Mart co-founder, Anna-Marie Solowij, we discovered Wendy’s beauty and nutrition tips and guests also had the opportunity to have their burning beauty questions answered by Wendy.
During the morning, we were treated to a three course brunch of delicious meals from Wendy’s book, and also sampled a selection of wonderful natural beauty products including Inlight Skincare, Alchemy Super Blends and NK Naturals, alongside turmeric tonic by Jamu Kitchen.
We of course bought Wendy’s beautifully presented book, Eat Beautiful on the day, and even had it signed by the woman herself. Since then we’ve been making our way through the 70-page spread of super-healthy recipes designed to reignite your inner glow. Here we’ve pulled out three of our favourites so far…
Saturday evening following the brunch, we gave this beautifully coloured fig salad a try at home. Providing natural sweetness and packed full of goodness, we absolutely loved making this salad as much as we did eating it.
According to Wendy, figs are perfect for detoxifying the skin, making them perfect for skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne.
A favourite with everyone in the Beautii team, there’s nothing like a warming soup on an autumnal Sunday. Super easy to make and full of antioxidants, miso fights signs of ageing, strengthens the immune system and is just the ticket for gorgeous, glowing skin.
With autumn well and truly here to stay, it would be rude not to try out this vibrant seasonal soup. We prepped and cooked the soup Sunday evening and had it for lunch on Monday… and we can confirm that it tastes incredible.
The benefits of seasonal pumpkin include aiding a good night’s sleep, whilst fighting off acne and improving the skin’s healing process.
