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!

Lacura Caviar Illuminating Day Cream

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.

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.

Gotta Love A Smokey Eye

Hey there girls,

I don’t get lots of opportunity to go all out on my makeup, but when I do there’s nothing like an intense smokey eye and even better when you can get some sparkle in there too!!!!  I try to do a makeup tutorial or 2 on snapchat each week covering everyday makeup to all out glamour and this was one of my looks that I loved.  I used the Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One and Fuschia eyedust for that sparkle,  I thought it would be great to run trough what I used and where because sometimes its hard to catch everything on

Penneys Makeup products

Hi there girlies,

So my next installment in the ‘Penneys Beauty Products’ is my current likes in the P.S. Love range.  I have been a fan of their liquid lipsticks for some time, perfect on their own or over your favourite lipstick or lipliner.  OK they won’t stay on your lips all day but you’ll be hard pushed to find any gloss like lipstick to have that type of staying power!! I find it easier sometimes to decant it onto the back of my hand and use a lip brush but if your out and about the brush it comes with will suffice, just not as precise.
