Barry M is all about fabulous fashion cosmetics. The British beauty brand has been around since 1982 and is still a go-to brand when it comes to shopping for colourful, OTT, statement making makeup.

So we hot-stepped across to the offices to meet with the team and talk through how they do work style and standout beauty.

Lorraine Clough is the PR manager at Barry M and wears a River Island floral print maxi dress, Topshop leather jacket and black ankle boots from M&S.

On the beauty front, Lorraine wears Barry M's Gelly Nail Paint and and the Gelly Lip Crayon. Her false lashes are by Ardell but her real power piece is the Barry M bold waterproof eyeliner.

"I like to look quite glam in the office, and because work is all about beauty I wear dark colours so that my makeup can do the talking. "
