To Top
This month we have teamed up with Arabella Preston, co-founder of natural skincare line, Votary. A professionally trained make-up artist, Arabella talks us through her top tips for skincare and the magic behind her transforming plant-based facial oils. With a passion for jewellery as well as beauty, we find out which pieces Arabella will treasure forever as well as her favourite charm from Annoushka’s Seeds collection.
Votary is the evolution of your work as a make-up artist and former beauty editor, what advice would you give to someone wanting to start their own business?
Don’t wait for the perfect moment because it will simply never arrive. The juggle is real when running your own business and the sooner you just accept the chaos and crack on the better. It sort of goes without saying that you really need to believe and trust in the product you are hoping to sell.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
This too shall pass.

What are the skincare rules you live by?
A proper cleanse with a cleansing oil morning and evening with a good old-fashioned flannel is surprisingly transformative. I like simplicity and ease in my skincare and to trust in visible results. Every Votary product I create reflects these goals.
