Sherrie Tells All!

This week Sherrie from Mirror Mirror On The Wall dishes the dirt on some of her past beauty indiscretions. Get ready to visualise the love child of Worzel and Aunt Sally.......

Confession is good for the soul, go ahead and unburden yourself! I promise I won’t judge.

I have always from a young age been excited about makeup! I remember having one of the Model Heads which came with a make-up kit and hair brush. Hands up who else had one? Blue eyeshadow and pink lips and matted hair was the usual look, on the doll not me of course.

When I was a teenager I had the worse skin ever, my face was full of spots thanks to my wild hormones. Luckily after walking through my local House of Fraser store I remember the Clinique consultant stopping me and doing the trusty tape test on my hand and gave me the 3 step sample pack to use. After using this, my skin totally changed, for the better. Who’d have thought that in years to come I too would be a consultant on the same counter!

I have had so many different hair colours and styles, from bleach blonde, red and orange! My most drastic style was the very famous Victoria Beckhams short cropped hair cut, the only problem was I have thick hair and so it resembled more like Katrina from Katrina and the Waves hair style! Who at the time won the Eurovision Song contest. A bit different from the very glamorous VB!

I am a total Makeup Magpie! I find it hard to throw anything away but once I finally overcome this I feel relief. I am so naughty and have become lazy when it comes to removing my mascara, I am using Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara and it’s a bugger to remove.

I hate my eyebrows they are so long and horrid and I have to keep them trimmed and tidy, I worry one day I may actually resemble Worzel Gummidge whilst on the other hand I have a weakness for blusher and quite often find myself looking like Aunt Sally! So there you go there’s no hope for me with eyebrows like Worzel Gummidge and cheeks like Aunt Sally.

Up this close, Worzel realised that Sally's 'lash extensions' were fooling no one.

There, don’t you feel better now?

Aunty Brown has a few more questions though; it’s true that I’m the nosy type.

When was the last time you visited the hairdresser?

September, for a trim and colour. I am really naughty and tend to go months without having a cut! I have now succumbed to home hair dye kits! Quicker and cheaper.

You have a choice: bad hair or bad nails?

Bad Nails, I actually don’t have any nails thanks to my 2 little cherubs!!! My poor hands take a beating but currently hoping my Nail Envy will help grow them!

What is the oldest item of make up in your collection?

A very old L’Oreal pink blusher which is totally cracked and housed within a broken case being hold together by a very old headband.

Which trend still makes you cringe? 

Ohh this is hard but I’m going to go with over plucked eye brows! That is a major no no and YES I am guilty of this but not anymore.


Thank you for sharing Sherrie! You naughty thing not taking your mascara off, I'm shocked! I share your children = poorly hands and nails problem. I hope you have some success with the Nail Envy.

If you would like to take a turn and unburden yourself in the Friday Confessional you can email me at It's open to everyone: if you have something to confess, I'm happy to hear it!


  1. That Clinique mascara is truely evil. At the counter, I thought: 'Hey neat idea to use warm-water activated removal!'. 10 hours later by the bathroom sink and I'm pathetically tugging at my lashes, hoping I won't pull any off whilst trying to fiddle the elastic junk away.

    Sad times indeed.

  2. Overplucked eyebrows make me cringe as well! They can make anyone look scheming and evil :P

  3. I agree on the over plucked eyebrows. It's not great.

    Oh and I think it's time that Sherrie and the hair-band-held-together blusher parted ways ;-)

    Good read, nice confessions x

  4. Another great confession, don't you just hate it when in your head a hair style is going to work even though you know with your hair its not even going to be close, and you always want what you know wont work!

  5. I have laughed yet again reading this, so funny! x

  6. Thanks again Sherrie, I really enjoyed reading your confessions :D
