Au Natural

I've been experimenting quite a bit with my hair over the past two years first with blonde then copper. So last week my lovely hairdresser (Hi Dee) stripped my hair back to my own natural red and I love it!!!

Thanks again Dionne And thanks for reading

Rimmel Glam Eyes HD

I picked up this little palette in my local chemist a few weeks ago. I thought it would be perfect for doing everyday makeup for work but I ended up using it for the nights I went out over the bank holiday weekend. I used it to create two different types of smoky eye. The second of which I didn't take any pictures of but will redo during the week.

There were a few different shades to chose from and I picked 022 Brixton Brown to compliment my colouring. The palette includes 5 different shades as well as a guide at the back to put the colours if your unsure.

The colours are so pretty my favourites are the champange and cranberry and the colour payoff is really good.

Boots Botanics Range

I've already raved about my love for some of the products in the boots Botanics range. A while ago I popped in to get another radiance balm  and had a look at the rest of the range and decided to try out a few other products. I picked up the microdermabrasion polish and the radiance concentration serum as well as my much loved radiance balm.

The mircodermabrasion polish aims to encourage cell renewal, refine pores and improve skin texture and should be used weekly. I keep mine in the shower to use every few days to improve the appearance of my fake tan as it removes all the dead skin cells and t
takes the dull look of your skin. I find it leaves the skin so soft and slightly moisturised. 

The serum I LOVE!!! It aims to energise the skin and give a visible radiant glow. After two weeks the skin should look brighter, this can be applied twice daily. I'm really loving this product. You only need 2-3 drops to do your whole face. It absorbs straight away but gives a really fresh feeling and leaves the skin looking lovely and dewy. I've been using this as a base primer then applying the radiance balm before I apply my foundation or BB cream.

I'm so impressed with this range the products really suit my sensitive skin and I love the packaging. At the minute these products are all on offer at €4 each!! I'll definitely be popping back in to pick up some more products, I'm running low on cleanser at the minute so I'm looking forward to trying out one of the ones from this range.

Makeup Storage

I've been on the hunt lately for something to store my own personal makeup in and spotted this little beaut In Dunnes home when I was working away from home in a different store. I'm so in love with it, it has four compartments on the top which are great for your brushes and tall bottles etc. Then it has two small drawers that are perfect for eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks etc.

Primark Playsuits

I love playsuits for nights out and these too I picked up in Primark lately for next to nothing. I parired them with all primark accessories and added my Alex and Ani bracelets and my ToyWatch.
