From the best moisturisersand mascaras to the perfect nude lipstick, if a beauty product is worth knowing about, Amelia’s tried it. Even better, as we come to that most wonderful time of the year where the best beauty advent calendars begin to hit the shelves, she has the inside scoop on the contents of the much-hyped John LewisBeauty Advent Calendar.
The calendar, which offers beauty products worth £376 for just £150 is currently in stock online. But thanks to that juicy selection of products and beautiful keepsake box it's sure to be another sell-out success.
Do you want to know more about what's inside? Or perhaps you're simply looking for some expert beauty inspiration?
In the spirit of sharing is caring, we caught up with Amelia to discover her five beauty picks of the season, all of which you will find within the drawers of the John Lewis Beauty Advent Calendar.
