Max Factor Lipfinity

Max Factor Lipfinity

Lipstick is a very personal thing. You might like gloss, or a lipstick or just a bit of lip liner. But ultimately, I think we all have our favourites. I tend to go for neutral shades with lip colour, but recently I did a lip liner tutorial on Beaut.ie and I discovered a lipstick that really does beat them all. Max Factor Lipfinity has been on the market for a very long time, but the newest version of this stalwart…

VLOG! How to straighten Hair using the InStyler

VLOG! How to straighten Hair using the InStyler

I’m happy to say that thanks to Canon Ireland, I have started to vlog again! Having the right camera is the greatest thing when you want to start a You Tube channel. Canon have been letting me try out the Powershot G1X Mark II camera and it’s just incredible. As a result, I’ve been practicing my vlogging capabilities. The camera has a “flippable” screen so when you are filming yourself, you can manoeuvre the screen so you can see yourself.…

My make up tutorial that’s not really a tutorial

My make up tutorial that’s not really a tutorial

Getting your make up right is always a challenge. I love playing around with it; now this is not a make up  tutorial in any shape or form, more a look at how I did my face this week and the products I love to get the look.   I also like to leave my images unedited. I haven’t got perfect skin, but there’s no point in claiming I do. So I leave my skin to do it’s thing and…

Backstage at London Fashion Week with Vidal Sassoon

Backstage at London Fashion Week with Vidal Sassoon

Getting backstage at London Fashion Week is always a treat; it gives you an insight into exactly what it takes to put together the ten minutes of models walking on a catwalk. It’s not just about the clothes which I think, as consumers, we can forget. The whole look is what it is about. The designer has a vision of his woman; he or she knows their inspiration and to showcase that they need a team of hair stylists and…

Urban Decay Naked Smoky

Urban Decay Naked Smoky

It arrives tomorrow and I’ve heard that there’s an 8000 strong waiting list in Ireland. It’s the arrival of the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette, and I am lucky enough to have one in my possession. So what’s the buzz about? Well I have long been a fan of the Naked Palettes which last for ages without drying out whatsoever. The pigments are second to none, and the array of colours will cover every possible occasion. What’s not to love?…

Strobing Makeup Tutorial (my way!)

Strobing Makeup Tutorial (my way!)

I’ve been reading a lot about strobing recently, and thanks to instagram and following some of my favourite beauty bloggers like Really Ree,  Milkteef and Beauty Junkie London, I have found some great tips and put them all together to come up with my very own strobing makeup tutorial whether it’s technically correct or not. Most beauty pages recommend a dedicated strobing cream (like MAC have a super one, more on that later in the week) but I have my…

Testing the Glamoriser hair tools!

Testing the Glamoriser hair tools!

I love some bounce in my hair, and since I got my Gold Fever hair extensions in, I have been having quite the fun time styling long locks into various styles. But a big curl has to be my favourite. So last week I decided to try and test the new Glamoriser hair tools which are available at Argos. I was very lucky to be in London at the Argos Christmas event, so I got a sneak peek and a…

My top fake tans for pale skin

My top fake tans for pale skin

It’s a question that’s googled a lot! What are the top fake tans for pale skin? It’s hard to answer that question without a lot of research and trying out a few products. And that’s exactly what I’ve done. I can’t sit in the sun for very long with my fair skin as I would end up like a lobster. So I have to dowse myself in 30-50 SPF in hot weather. Also I wear a 20 SPF daily to…
