Sleek Cream Contour Kit

Hey there girls,

So I finally got my mitts on a Sleek Cream Contour Kit.  I bought mine in the medium (which was sold out everywhere for ages)  because I felt I would get more use out of all the shades.  The light kit would be great for those who don’t wear tan, the second shade especially would be great for dark under eye circles because it has a very pink undertone.

How can you make the most of your eyes?

Hey there girls,

Its been a couple of weeks since I last posted, took a bit of a break to sort out my new makeup venture (see more here) and get my head around things a bit!!!  So this week I decided to talk about something I regularly get asked, what colour eye shadow should I be wearing for my eye colour??  To be honest whether your blue, green or brown in eye colour you have lots of options and even though there are rules (or should I say options) rules where made to be broken, so if you have a daredevil side these general rules will entice you to mix it up a bit!

Hi there girls,

IMG_9828

At this stage you know how much I like to find a great budget beauty product for you and lets face it me too!!!!  So I’d heard a lot about this Lacura Caviar range from Aldi, I held off on trying it because I had used a cheaper Lacura moisturiser before and had a terrible reaction.  I was definitely dubious giving this a go but when my mum bought me one I just had to try it out.

My Recent Makeup Haul

Hey there girls,

So I’ve began my Freelance Makeup service girls (see more here) and I wanted to add some key products to my kit.  We headed up to Dublin and made it a day out, firstly I went to Brown Thomas because I wanted to visit MAC and Laura Mercier and then went on to Inglot.  Here’s a run down of what I purchased and why I like them for my clients.

Trainers are not only for the Gym!

Hey there girls,

So styles come and go year in year out, but one trend that seems to be sticking is casual and wearing cool and stylish trainers with an array of outfits.  I am a follower of this trend and I can be found regularly swooning over the coolest trainers from New Balance to Nike.   Our busy lifestyles lend themselves nicely to this casual trend, running from work to do the shopping before running  to collect the kids to run (yet again!) home to prepare dinner.  I decided to share my current fav’s that are out there at the minute and there are a few!!  I’d safely say one of each please………….

How to get that Flawless Finish

Hey there girls,

So a question that comes up for women time and time again is ‘How do I get that flawless finish to my makeup?’.  You can put the best foundation on your skin but if you do not prepare the skin and set the foundation you’re at nothing!  I never used to do either and by lunch time my face would be sliding down my neck and I could never understand why.  After trying different ways this is what I’ve found gives me the best finishes, if you like dewy skin or matte I’ve you covered.  As I always say it doesn’t always have to be expensive products, I like to show you how to achieve these looks with affordable items too.
