How to apply foundation – my way

How to apply foundation – my way

I have incredibly pale skin, that unfortunately has had a rocky relationship with adult acne for most of my late twenties. I did a great interview with the Irish Independent this week about how I cured and still manage my breakouts. This came about when I posted the first no make up selfie on Instagram in quite a while. I was overwhelmed with the response, and I even was invited to go on Spin 1038 (thank you Lauren and Gordon!)…

Beauty Review with MAC, Tom Ford & Smashbox

Beauty Review with MAC, Tom Ford & Smashbox

I have had my eye on a few new products over the last few weeks that I have been dying to try. The first is MAC’s new foundation, called Matchmaker, which is designed to give a true to life shade match with a nice, natural sheer coverage. The delivery system is very unique. The foundation is on a sponge that you can push a brush or another sponge onto to get exactly the right amount needed. The coverage is build-able…

Beauty products from the USA

Beauty products from the USA

One thing I love doing is finding new beauty products from the USA and during my recent trip to Boston I went on a mission to find some new ones from skincare to make up. Perusing the shelves in Target and CVS provides me with hours of entertainment; discovering brands we can’t get in Ireland makes them more covetable to me! With the foreign exchange rates levelling off, it means now there is very little price difference between the Euro…

A no makeup selfie

A no makeup selfie

I didn’t think I would ever have the confidence in my skin to post a no makeup selfie. Even last year, when the craze hit, I didn’t post one. My skin has always been temperamental. I tried everything when I get hit with adult acne. From visits to the top dermatologist in the country who just wanted to put me on tablets which I didn’t want to do, to acupuncture and every natural remedy under the sun. Silly hormones just…

My new Goldfever Hair Extensions

My new Goldfever Hair Extensions

I’ve had Goldfever Hair extensions before, but I was so excited to get them back in last week. I’ve had shoulder length hair for about six months now so it was time for a change! What I love about this particular brand of hair is how small the bonds are to attach to your own hair, meaning that you can hardly feel them. You would expect that this amount of extra hair would be really heavy but honestly, it’s not.…

I love a good lippie, so today I am sharing my top five red lipsticks (you might want one for the weekend!)

Meeting Charlotte Tilbury

Meeting Charlotte Tilbury

I think you should always meet your heroes. They have never failed me in any way when I have come face to face with someone I admire. And when it’s someone who has a daily impact on your life, well, that takes the fan girling to whole new levels. I had met Charlotte Tilbury before, but this time was different. Her brand is stronger than ever, the world knows her make up as being one of the leading brands you…
