Name: Leah Bain

Position in BBTG/ projects involved in: Contributing Writer and Science Outreach

Qualifications: BSc with Honours, Biochemistry, Newcastle University

Biggest Beauty Blunder/ Biggest Beauty Mistake: Definitely the heavy eye-liner look I sported during the wanna-be-emo (more like “wanna-be-panda”!) phase of my early teen years! My fifteen year old self did not understand the meaning of ‘less is more’.

Beauty Love: Hair oil reflections by Wella! I’m waiting for the day that the cave-girl look comes back into fashion, but until then this works wonders on my frizzy hair!

Beauty Loathe: Foundation or concealer on lips … I just don’t get it
