About Me

About Vicky

Hi, I’m Vicky, I am 32 and I live In the United Kingdom, more specifically, the popular holiday destination – Torquay. I am originally from a small town called Basingstoke, which is in Hampshire. I moved to Torquay to live with my now fiancée, Jak and our mischievous black cat called Loki.

I work full time training as a dental nurse, which I really enjoy. I love to spend most of my spare time blogging, taking photos and researching the newest makeup trends.

About Kabuki Rune

Kabuki Rune is a Cruelty Free Beauty/Makeup and Lifestyle blog and was started by myself, Vicky in March of 2017, I like to focus my blogging on Cruelty Free Makeup and Beauty products.

I started this blog as I have a passion for makeup and beauty and wanted to reach out to my fellow makeup junkies (and I know there are alot of you out there!) to share honest and unbiased reviews, recommendations and suggestions for Cruelty Free Beauty & Makeup finds.

I review both drugstore and high end products and I absolutely love finding a good dupe for high end products! as who doesn’t like to save a little bit of £$ I have hoarded Makeup for quite a few years now and have makeup drawers bursting full of many beautiful products  {reminds me, I really need to sort my Makeup drawers out…… somehow, and to not show my fiance the extent of my hoarding}

All the products featured on my blog are certified Cruelty Free and I am now stepping into the Organic market, so there will be alot more Organic skincare and makeup popping up. I’m a big animal lover and I believe that no animal should be harmed for our own vanity, there are plenty of products available that are Cruelty Free, you just have to do a little brand research, and that’s where I come in….. I will do the hunting for you and give you the low down on the products I find.


When did you start blogging?

I have only recently started blogging, this year in March 2017. I have an unhealthy addiction to makeup, skincare and haircare. I read a lot of blogs, so thought I can do that!.. So, I did and Kabuki Rune was born.

What camera do you use?

Most of my photographs are taken with my Olympus PEN E-PL7 with 45mm Lens. I do also use my iPhone 7 plus, as you can get some great photos from this, and it is great for on the go photos. I use Afterlight or VSCO to edit all my photos, being a mobile app you can edit on the go and it has the best filters and effects I have found.

What is your skin type?

My skin type leans towards the oily side, I use alot mattifying products to try and reduce the amount of oil my skin produces but am yet to fine found my holy grail foundation for oily skin, it’s a life long struggle to keep foundation on my face. If you have any suggestions, hit me up.

What is your hair type?

In the past I used to dye my hair a rainbow of colours, and I don’t think my hair has ever really recovered. I have managed to grow it out and it is completely natural now, but it is still dry and I struggle to find hair products to smooth it out.

What are the best experiences you’ve got from blogging?

Apart from getting to spend most of my time talking about makeup and beauty with like minded people, I think it has been improving my photography skills and working with some awesome brands, it’s been so overwhelming at times when brands contact me, so thankful for every one of the brands I have worked with for believing in me. I have recently won a couple of blogger awards, which is super sweet, I never thought anyone would read my blog, so its so heart-warming to hear that people do.

Last, but not least. Thank you so much for dropping by today and I really hope you have enjoyed browsing my blog, as much as I enjoy sharing my thoughts with you.

Please feel free to leave any comments or contact me directly if you have any recommendations or would like me to review a certain product.

Much love
