5 minutes with natural beauty, Eleanor Pendleton
FOUNDER OF GRITTY PRETTY
I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT … the ones who mean the most to me.
I RELAX BY … meditating overlooking the ocean and doing reformer pilates classes a few times a week.
I LIKE TO … always be creative. Writing is second nature to me so being able to combine my love of beauty with writing is my ultimate dream job.
I THINK BEAUTY IS … more than skin deep. It’s about knowing who you are and being completely at peace with yourself.
MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREATMENT THAT LEAVES ME LOOKING AND FEELING NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL IS … SK-II Facial Treatment Masks – I never travel without them! I always arrive at my destination with hydrated and glowy skin because of them.
MY NUMBER ONE BEAUTY TIP IS … always remove your makeup at night and drink plenty of water during the day.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PEARL OF WISDOM THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD BROADCAST TO THE WORLD? What you do, who you’re with and how you feel about the world around you, is completely up to you!
WHAT IS IT INSPIRES YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO? As a beauty editor, it’s a privilege to have an audience of thousands of women who listen to what I have to say about all things beauty. There comes a sense of responsibility with that so I strive every day to do the best job I can and be the kindest human I can be.
