WHAT’S IN MY MAKE UP BAG

WHAT’S IN MY MAKE UP BAG

There are sometimes when I want the entire contents of my make up kit to come out with me. I want my make up bag to be a source of everything I need to make myself pretty. But you can’t feasibly take the lot so what’s the solution. Well before I share what’s in my make up, here are a couple of streamlining tips. Seek out multi use products; products like lips & cheeks, lightweight concealers that can work as…

MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS UNDER €10

You know I am a beauty fiend and I wanted to share some of my favourite beauty products under €10/£10 that I use all the time. My biggest learning point since introducing a beauty section to the blog is that sometimes the best quality products are not necessarily by premium brands. Yes, we love luxury yet my feedback from followers is that they want a balance of budget in their make up bag. I’m lucky in that a lot of…

LIP CONTOURING AN EASY BEAUTY HACK

When I first heard about lip contouring I had to Google to it to find out what on Earth was this now? The only contouring I could ever mange was a small line on my cheekbone that I had to blend like mad thanks to my pale skin. But by now I reckon I have mastered that (thanks Kim Kardashian for the help with that) and it’s onto the latest contouring fad. Firstly I need to add that I don’t…

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…

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…

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…

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…
