SPONSORED – A NEW FOUNDATION YOU NEED TO TRY

When I began writing about beauty, it wasn’t out of a need to do what every one else was doing. My reasoning was very much the result of a personal relationship with skin and make up that started back in my teens. Then I forgot about it, and then I grew up and needed to have a made up face for certain aspects of my job. If I take you back to about 1999, when I first began to really…

I’ve spent the last month doing some research on new products as well as testing everything I get sent try to review for my blog. I’ve found some gems to start your new season look from foundations to nail polishes that I think are well worth the investment.  I like to change up my foundations all the time and I’ve put…

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…

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…

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?…

Smokey Eye Hack And How To Get The Look

Smokey Eye Hack And How To Get The Look

I have a very quick tutorial that is really, a smokey eye hack that you can get in about five minutes or less. I avidly follow so many amazing beauty bloggers and You Tubers to see how they do their make up and although I am inspired, most of the time I do not have the time to get the look myself. If it’s a TV day, then I am frantically painting my face while sitting on the floor with…
