Let’s talk about Charlotte Tilbury.

I’ve got an obsession. And if you read my instagram then you will see why. I was introduced to the wonders of Charlotte Tilbury make up back when she first launched the collection in Selfridges. Now the empire has grown and we can get our mitts on it at the amazing counter in Brown Thomas Dublin. I’ve tried A LOT of make up over the years, but this one has me coming back for more. I do receive samples, but…

Laser Hair Removal What You Need To Know!

I have been having laser hair removal in Urbana Dublin for the last year or so and I am thrilled with the results. So, if you are thinking of having the treatment yourself, I have some guidance! I chat to Paula Cuddihy, owner of Urbana all about laser hair removal and what to expect! Having had laser hair removal completed, what should a client expect in terms of results?

A new look! Gold Fever Hair extensions review

A new look! Gold Fever Hair extensions review

I went on and on about having short hair and how much I loved it and I did. But it got to a length where I had two choices. Either let it grow or cut it again. So I went for the third option and that was to get extensions. Now this was not a decision I took lightly. I have a few projects coming up and I thought a little length would be good. New challenge, new hair that’s…

A makeup but no makeup look. Make sense?

A makeup but no makeup look. Make sense?

At the weekend the last thing I want to do is overload my skin with make up. But at the same time, I like to feel I have something on my face, as unfortunately my skin isn’t as good as it looks on instagram (thank goodness for filters). So the key for me is to create a makeup look that is a no makeup look. I know confusing right? I want to feel  like I am wearing a light, but…

Charlotte Tilbury make up look

Charlotte Tilbury make up look

I adore Charlotte Tilbury make up. It’s simply boundary breaking when it comes to quality, application and staying power. And that applies to all her products. The Magic Cream, the lipsticks, Rock N Kohl pencils and the amazing brow lift pencil. I had the pleasure of having my face full of all these amazing things last week when I visited the Charlotte Tilbury counter at Brown Thomas Dublin. The amazing Laura worked her magic on my face to create a…

My MakeUp Must Haves 2015!

My MakeUp Must Haves 2015!

I sometimes overwhelmed by the amount of beauty products on the market. I never know which ones to choose or which treatments to get if I have something coming up. So I put my thinking cap on in preparation for London Fashion Week to make sure I made the most of the small space in my make up bag, and that I brought the right things (I always forget something). I had a long list but to give you a…

Armani Eye Tint and Maestro

Armani Eye Tint and Maestro

Ah eye make up, my favourite. And this week there is a fabulous product from Armani to get your hands on. Armani eye tint is exactly that but it promises to do so much more. In a tube, the formula is thicker than a liquid, but not too matte that it dries out quickly. And in a multitude of shades, there is a colour for every eye make up need. Last week, I attended a master class with Armani  beauty…

So to give you an idea of what’s to come, here are some of…
