Q & A ◊ Meet Kim Maes
Meet Kim ...
Looking at her, instantly raises the question: what is she wearing?!
Yes, the outfits as well, but the skin people, the skin ... it’ s beyond perfection. Glowing, radiant, just the perfect example of natural beauty.
And natural, ‘clean’ and honest beauty is exactly what she was aiming for.
Yup, Kim is not only a freelance make-up artist, she is also the owner of Blos.
Blos happens to be one of the most amazing online skincare/beauty places ever.
What I love most about Kim is the time she takes for each client. Most people would think that online shopping is so impersonal and far from ‘cosy’ but not at Blos. You can talk to Kim about skincare, your skin ‘trouble’ and worries without having the feeling you’re bothering her. If you haven’t paid Blos a visit, be sure to check it out after reading our Q&A!
I’m warning you, it will be your new addiction!
