Should We Encourage Plus Sized Beauty?

After Women's Running magazine featured a plus sized cover girl, the internet was divided over whether plus sized beauty should be encouraged and represented in the media. I often get into this debate on Twitter (sigh) so I thought my beauty/lifestyle blog would be a relevant place for me to gather my thoughts. Hint: The answer is obviously yes. It frustrates me that this even needs to be discussed, but plus sized figures must be equally represented in the media. Disclaimer: As a UK size 10/12, I'm aware I'm not best positioned to speak on behalf of the plus sized community. I speak from observations I've made about others around me and my personal opinion on the beauty industry as a whole, so please comment below if you feel I'm overlooking anything.

Top Five Lipsticks

I wasn't much of a lipstick fan until quite recently as I'd always felt like it was too much against my pale skin. I'm not the most adventurous when it comes to makeup so I tend to stick to similar shades of "your lips but better" for daily wear and go absolutely wild with a red on extra special occasions. I've rounded up my top 5 to include both affordable and luxury lippies.
