Makeup of the Day

Hey girls

Today I tried out some new products and wanted to share them with you. 

If you seen my 'makeup must haves' post you will know I am obsessed with this Soleil de Tan from Chanel. I love the effect it has on my skin and love to contour with it. 

I have been using different brushes with this product and think I have finally found the perfect one. The F40 from Blank Canvas Cosmetics makes applying this bronzer flawless and I love it.

This is my makeup base and I am loving this combination. I tried out the a new foundation for the first time. it is the Benefit Hello Flawless in Honey.

The coverage if the foundation is medium and it is quiet a liquidy formula. I built the coverage up to almost full coverage by applying two coats.

I have been using two new palette from The Balm that I have been using and I am in love them with. They are so pigmented and the colours are gorgeous.

 I absolutely love this eye look.

I tried a brand new product to the blank Canvas Cosmetics family and it is their new liquid eyeliner. I loved it because it was a felt tip liner which I love and it is extremely black. That is what I always look for in an eyeliner

On my lips I am wearing Alluring Pink from Catrice

Hope you liked this makeup of the day

I just paired these two toned denim skinnies with a plain black tank top and my super comfy chelsea boots from pennies

Forever 21 jeans are so super affordable and sooooo comfy.

I love these boots as they instantly dress up any casual outfit.

New Product Launches - La Roche & Vichy

Hey Lovelies

I am bringing you two brand new product launches from two amazing skincare brands La Roche-Posay & Vichy. 

The first product to mention is the Normaderm night detox from Vichy. This product is the world's 1st detox & purifying night care for oily skin.

Did you know?

Oily skin produces three times more sebum than that of normal skin?

During the night all skin has a natural sebum peak at midnight.
In the morning  skin appears oiler, pores are dilated, skin texture is not smooth and imperfections may have developed over night making the skin feel “dirty”. 

I know my skin has a shine to it in the morning time. 
Does anyone else get that?

This excess sebum is visible the next morning and is most noticeable around noon, 12pm shine anyone?

It takes around 12 hours for the sebum produced at night to be excreted to the surface of the skin, resulting in a oily T-zone and  explains why your make-up always disappears by lunchtime!

What the night detox actually does is neutralises and eliminates toxins and impurities from bacteria for long lasting, clearer skin.

Vichy Normaderm promises to 

Control sebum production 
  It purifies skin
  Blemishes appear reduced
 Pores refined
 Radiant complexion
 Even skin texture

What more could you want from a nights sleep :)

A 40 ml tube of this baby is €17 and is available in pharmacies now

The second product launch I want to talk about is the 


This product from La Roche-Posay is a dermatological anti- ageing treatment.

This product is enriched in pure retinol which is the gold standard in treating wrinkles, retinol  stimulates collagen and elastin, creating firmer, smoother skin.

What every women wants right.

La Roche-Posay’s signature proprietary ingredient, LHA, is a lipophilic agent that offers 6x the exfoliation of salicylic acid.

LHA offers precise, cell-by-cell exfoliation with enhanced skin regeneration and increased cell turnover, increasing radiance, smoothing skin texture and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

A 30ml tube retails at €34 and is also available in pharmacies

I will be trying out these bad boys over the next few weeks and will have a review on both so keep an eye out for that.

Makeup Must Haves

Hey Ladies

As you all know I am makeup mad so today I want to bring you some of my  makeup must haves of the moment. Some are new favourites and others are old trusty products

Who else loves my little heart lights? I picked them up on Pennys during the week and love them.

This eyeliner from Catrice has been in my makeup bag since the beginning of time :) I have mentioned it in numerous favourites videos and love it so much. It is a felt tip liquid eyeliner and is soooooo pigmented and jet back.

This primer from Smashbox is my ultimate fav primer, it is like silk on the skin and makes applying foundation so effortless & smooth.

I have been using this foundation for the past year and absolutely love it.

It is medium to full coverage and blends out so nicely.

I have recommended it to so many friends and clients and they all love it too. If you haven't tried an inglot foundation then this is the one to try.

This baby is brand new and I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it. It was recommended to me from another makeup artist who said it was an absolute must for my makeup kit. This cream to powder universal bronzer from Chanel is to die for.

How amazing does it look? It is a universal bronzer which means it builds up to every skin tone and blends out flawlessly.

This eye shadow palette from NYX was a present from the fabulous SoSueMe and I love it so much. The dark brown is my current fave eye shadow and it is fab blended under the lower lashes. The shadows in this palette are so pigmented and NYX is so affordable.

This powder was sent to me from Physicians Formula to try out and I LOVE LOVE LOVE. It sets my foundation beautifully, feels so light on my skin & holds my foundation in place all day long. Physicians formula is brand new to the Irish market and I cant wait to get my hands on more of their amazing products.

Here is another amazing NYX product. I cant get over the quality of their stuff. 

This lipstick is unbelievable. It is so highly pigmented and the longetively of this lippie is outstanding. I applied it one morning before work and I kid you not I didn't have to re-apply until 4pm that afternoon.

Finishing off with a gorgeous lipgloss from Wet n Wild. This is the perfect everyday lipgloss and it is so smooth on the lips and not sticky at all. I love the colour and haven't been disappointed by a Wet n Wild product yet :)

Let me know of your makeup must haves
