Who I am

About Corina

Corina Lucy Best is the founder of lifestyle brand Vivid™ and community organisation 21st Century Female C.I.C.

Her ethos is Empowerment Through Creativity.

She is a social entrepreneur and creative artist, on a mission to help teenage girls and young women embrace who they are amidst the social and stereotyping pressures of modern life.

It is her aim to bring together and empower teenage girls and young women with practical personal tools to create happy, successful, and fulfilled lives, reaching their full potential as determined by them, and not that which is pushed on us by society or media stereotypes.

creator of

Vivid Beauty

She is the creator of Vivid Beauty  which is a concept and teachings that has the power to revolutionise our (human) understanding of Beauty so we can embrace our unique natural physicality and recognise our personal power; and thus, increase our ability to be happy, healthy and successful by our own standards .

Beauty is nature-designed and self-defined. We are vivid.

In other words, your distinctive beauty was given to you by nature. It is YOUR choice how you define it.  You can embrace it, or you can let society dictate what you are and what you are not. I don’t advise the latter.

Vivd Beauty is a new paradigm, a new way of seeing yourself and your physicality. It’s a concept I created to offer a reframe of our understanding of ‘Beauty’ and ‘Perfection’ in a world which is constantly telling us that we are not good enough!

I believe we are all nature-designed and self-defined which points to every single one of us being on an individual and perfect journey. This is the message which underpins and drives my work.

 All of the work I do has a theme of uncovering unique self-expression and the development of a positive self-image; using artistic and creative channels to get there. I see these as foundational life skills contributing to each one’s capability to excel in whatever they choose.”
