About Me


Bethany Lauren Dean

1st Class Media Studies graduate and Communications Officer for the charity Mind

Hey everyone, I started the Polished Couture adventure in 2013 around November time and I’d describe this online space as a way to release my thoughts and opinions on beauty, fashion and everything in between. Polished Couture is my part-time hobby that I focused on in between university and now as a Communications officer.

Here you’ll find the latest beauty reviews, beauty finds, fashion posts and the occasional lifestyle post. I write a lot on blogging events in my local area and even my holiday travels. I hope you enjoy visiting the website and my content, if you want to know a little more about me, read below.

As part of starting this blog adventure, in 2015 I won PR campaign of the year at my university and shortlisted for the Northern Blog Awards as Best Beauty Blog. I have travelled all the way up to Edinburgh and London with this blog and I’ve worked with some amazing brands along the way. In 2017 I had the opportunity to attend New York fashion week and London Fashion week and I’m looking forward to see what 2018 brings.

My favourite makeup brands have to be: YSL, MAC, Urban Decay. Charlotte Tilbury and Benefit Cosmetics.

My favourite fashion brands are: River Island, Lipsy, Topshop and Michael Kors.

I am possibly the biggest TV geek ever. I absolutely love American TV shows such as Vampire Diaries, American Horror Story, Pretty Little Liars, The Flash, Riverdale and lots more! If you have any recommendations please let me know, I’m always up for a new Netflix show.
