Gift Ideas for Make-Up Lovers

Do you have any makeup lovers in your life? I've put together my own personal wish list of palettes that I think would make great gifts for your loved ones this year. Whether you have a teenager starting out wearing makeup or a makeup artist friend you can't go wrong with palettes as their so versatile. All of these are available online and won't break the bank. The Blank Canvas ones in particular are amazing value! I already have their powder contour kit and am dying to try out their cream one.. 

Happy Shopping!!

Lisa Eldridge.. Artist Inspiration

As I've said before I have a huge style crush on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley I love her style, hair, make-up the whole works!! So when she tagged a make-up artist in one of her Instagram posts I of course had to have a nosy!! That artist was Lisa Eldridge and I've been obsessed with her since!!

Firstly can we just take a second to appreciate how utterly stunning she is!!! The woman doesn't even wear foundation on her entire face!

The Blanket Cape

Who ever came up with the concept of wearing a blanket outside of your home.. Thank you! It's now acceptable to be a sloth. I first seen the blanket Cape on the runway for Burberry and from there on an army of famous faces.. All who's style I love. So I went on the hunt for one on the high street. I found this one in New Look it comes in. Few different colours but I thought this one would be easier to wear. It's really light for layering but deceptively warm.

Feeling Blue

I've wanted a pastel coat coat since they hit the shops last A/W. Originally I wanted a pink one but then I found this little beaut and fell in love. I've barely taken it off since I got it for my birthday. I usually wear it with the fur collar as the neck is quite open.

Green Angel review part 2

If you read my first review on the green angel products you know that I started off with the cleanser and then added the toner and moisturiser to my routine. You'll also know that I love them!!! But for a while now there has been two things I've wanted to add to my skincare routine. The first being an eye cream and the second a good night cream.

Sundays... Quilted

My Sunday look is just slightly Chanel inspired can you tell?? Faux tweed box jacket, quilted bag and pumps and some faux pearls to finish it off. I added the pink paisley top for a pop of colour and to keep the look fresh.

Today is the first day of my weeks holidays from work. I'm looking forward to spending some much needed quality time with my little ladies and of course I can't wait until next weekend when my brother in law Ronan marries my friend Karen.

Tara O'Farrell Master Class, Mise Beauty

The other week I got a last minute invite from my friend Carly to go to a master class with the stunning Tara O'Farrell aka Tara Make-up. So of course I was straight over after work. The class was held in Mise Beauty which is just a few minutes walk from where I work. If you live near Dundalk and haven't been yet you need to. The brands they stock are amazing! Their make up collection ranges from higher end brands like Kevyn Aucoin to lower budget brands like Sleek and NYX. They stock hair care, skin care, sun-care and tanning products, nail products and also carry out treatments like spray tanning and waxing.

Before and After... 6 products...


I decided to do something a little different today. As you can probably tell from my product lists I use quite a few products when doing a clients makeup. That is so it will last all day/night, show up well in photos etc. I do use alot of these products on myself if I am going out or something like that but for day to day I either wear nothing or very little.

Sunday's and Returning to Work

So this is what I wore Sunday.
Sundays have always been the day that we spend time together as a family as it's the only one we're all at home for (I mentioned my husbands crazy hours before :( ) This one more then most because I was due back to work this week which was both nerve wrecking and exciting at the same time.

Happy Saturday!!!
I've spent mine with family having a lovely BBQ.
Today I'm wearing some of my favourites. I'm a sucker for anything paisley and the colour of these trousers are perfect for summer. I've been living in them they make a nice change from typical denim jeans. These are also great for summer whether worn with trousers or a dress.

Green Angel

As I mentioned on the Facebook page last week I purchased the green angel toner and daily moisturiser after previously using the cleanser. Some of you may of already heard of the brand as it's been featured on xpose and Ireland fm as well as winning RSVP beauty awards and IMAGE beauty awards. I heard about this brand through Tara Makeups page, who recommended the eye cream. I was on the look for a new cleanser at the time so decided to give it ago. I loved the sound of the natural ingredients and that the products aren't aimed at particular skin types. I would have quite an oily t-zone where as the rest of my face is quite dry and sensitive with a bit of rosacea (red colouring in my cheeks) so I get it very hard to get products when there mostly aimed at one or the other.

At first I was using the cleanser with a toner I already had. I absolutely loved it!! It was so gentle and the natural smelling seaweed and other ingredients made it smell like products used in a spa facial. After cleansing my skin didn't feel dry or striped it felt moisturised. I found the cream just cut through my makeup so easily I even use it to remove my eye makeup. Like I said I was using a toner I already had but as I was coming to the end of my cleanser I decided I was going to pick up the toner as well while I was repurchasing it. And luckily the pharmacy had an offer on of the cleanser, toner and moisturiser for just €30!! (Coyles for those of you who live near me :)) 

(Essential oils/Active ingredients: Irish seaweed extracts, Cumcumber and Sage) 

After using all three for the past week I have to say I'm really impressed. There's a real kick to the toner, not like a striping feeling more like the pow you get when you use mouth wash (if that makes sense to you) it leaves your skin feeling really refreshed and tingly.

With the moisturiser a little bit goes a long way! I apply a tiny dot to my forehead, cheeks and chin and that does my whole face and I use the excess on my hands. It feels so light which makes it perfect for using before you apply makeup as it doesn't feel like the makeup is just sliding of your face. 

(Essential oils/Active Ingredients: Vitimin E, Jasmine, Neroli, Lavender, Mandarin, Sweet Almond Oil, Irish Seaweed, Vitimin E)
Why skin care is important: 

Cleansing is important to 1. remove all makeup 2. Remove excess oil and dirt that builds up on our faces throughout the day 3. To exfoliate the dead skin cells off to leave brighter skin. 

But toning is also very important as it takes away any last traces of cleanser and helps to close the pores so they don't later clog up. Don't forget to avoid the delicate skin in the eye area.

As you've removed all excess oil etc from 
Your skin by cleansing and toning it is important to moisturise your skin to rehydrate it even if you have oily skin. People tend to use 'drying' products on oily skin to control it when really that just tells your skin to produce more oil! 

A good skin care routine is important to keep your skin in good condition and while it's in good condition your makeup will look better also. 

After using these three now I have the face scrub, eye cream and night cream on my wish list. 

For more info on their products and stocklists visit their website or Facebook 

I hope this post was helpful.. We're nearly there it's almost the weekend!

Hello Weekend.. Day to Night Makeup

As its Friday and your all probably counting down the seconds until you finish work I decided to blog a Day to Night make up look.

Mr and Mrs Huebl

When I read that these two had secretly gotten married I was gutted to think there would be no wedding dress photos! I was dying to see what she would wear. And of course she or should I say they (he is my total man style crush!)  didn't disappoint. Who else could get married in a cashmere sweater and shorts and still look this elegant? I love the natural makeup and messy ponytail, the entire look is effortlessly beautiful.

She is the real life Carrie Bradshaw, blue manolo pumps and all...

Date Night

 (^^^ Like all my baby proofing :))

Friday night we  had double celebrations as it was my better halfs birthday during the week and my brother passed all his exams in college so we went on a triple date and had an absolute ball.

Monday, 2 June 2014


On Sunday we took our girls to the festival. It was Emelia-Lily's 1st one, I was pregnant with her at it last year. In true baby fashion she slept through most of it. Luella-Rose had a ball though.
