Foundations for pale skin

Foundations for pale skin

I constantly google foundations for pale skin to see what comes up. When it comes to the paler shades, sometimes “fair” and “ivory” are still too dark for my ghost like skin. As you might have read on my previous posts, I also have some issues with redness (read my Renew posts here) so coverage is also something I have to take into account. So between shade matching, coverage and consistency to cater for dry areas, it’s a lot to…

Fashion week makeup looks

My fashion week makeup looks for this season were sponsored by Note Cosmetics and Sleek Make up, and I was thrilled to work with two great brands that are not only quality products, but really very affordable. In case you haven’t heard of them, Note Cosmetics is new to Ireland and comes from the makers of NYX (they sold the brand and have now developed a new one). Note is a pharmacy brand which you’ll be seeing pop up around…

Skin and My Confidence

I’ve always had skin that doesn’t want to be clear. It’s terrible that in my early thirties a girl can’t catch a break from spots. Thankfully, my face is doing ok. I’ve been having some skin-changing treatments with Renew Clinic over the last nine or so months which has changed the texture, feel and appearance of my scarred skin. Acne hit in my teens but hit harder in my twenties and decided it liked me too much. Not only for…

Mineralissima Mineral Makeup

Mineral makeup is having a moment, and so no better time to tell you about Mineralissima Mineral makeup, a brand that hails from the Netherlands and is gaining notoriety as an affordable mineral makeup that is completely natural. Their philosophy is that mineral makeup which has to be of a good quality since it’s pretty much organic, should not be overpriced, making this gentle form of product attainable. They are also proudly recognised by PETA as a brand that does…

Fixing Dry Skin with Suu Balm

I’ve spent a number of years fixing dry skin which likes to appear during Winter. And, I’m not just talking about my face. My elbows, feet, knees and randomly my lower back and neck. Years ago I used to get psoriasis on the back of my scalp that actually spread to my neck, and although that’s now well cured, my neck suffers from very dry and sore skin. I have to be super careful in the sun and really amp…

Winter Perfume Picks

I’m sitting at my desk which has a small corner dedicated to my current favourite perfumes, so while looking at them yesterday I decided to do a post on my winter perfume picks. It’s a good time of year to change up your fragrance, and my that I mean you might just be compiling your Christmas list, or wish-list so to speak. If you want to add a perfume to your list, then I have a few suggestions based on…

Competition Time to win a Beauty Hamper

It’s been a while since I did a competition, so I decided let’s celebrate the new season with the chance to win a beauty hamper! I’ve chosen some of my favourite products to include which are all new for the latter half of 2016. Do you like strobing? Or are you more of a contouring fan? What about lipsticks, matte or shine? And then there’s nail polish, do you go all out with colour or prefer a more natural look?…

An Easy Evening Make Up Look

I love spending ages doing my makeup when I have the time that is. This evening makeup look was easy to do, it just takes a little bit of time. But I was on holiday so I guess I can allow myself the time to perfect it, right? Starting with the base, I used the new PS PRO Illuminating Highlighter first, concentrating on my cheeks, the middle of my forehead and the bridge of my nose, as well as my cupid’s…
