Hello Everyone !! Hope you had a great week !!

Sorry I haven’t been blogging in awhile. The past week has been crazy busy! As it was my last week of my second year in Fashion Design, So I was up to my eyes with college work getting ready for my assessments with many sleepless nights, I was delighted with my finished garment in the end so it was all worth it 🙂

…….And Summer has officially began !!!


What Is In My Make Up Bag This Month ?

I have been getting a lot of questions about my make up looks this month, So I thought it would be nice to run through what ‘My Top 6 Products’are that I bring everywhere with me.



Starting off with “That Glow” Everyone wants to look healthy and have skin that glows, and by adding that extra shimmer to your skin for me is how to achieve that look. Two of my favourite products to achieve this look and that are always in my make up bag whenever I’m going anywhere are..

1.Inglot Sparkle Dust 02 €20 ( for a golden shimmer) and 01 ( for a white shimmer), I normally stick with 02 just because I do wear dark tan and love the golden glow it gives you. I apply this highlighter on top of the cheekbones in a half-heart shape from the apples up to the temples, I would also do this after all my make up and power is complete so it doesn’t cake on the skin.

2.CoCoa Brown Golden goddess Oil €11.95 I don’t even think I need to elebrate on this product! It has taken Ireland and America by storm as well as all CoCoa brown products, Perfect for the legs, chest, and arms over your tan if you looking to add that extra sun kissed glow to your skin.



Creating “Kylie’s Lips” I have been trying to get my hand on one of her lip kits for awhile and I finally got my hands on a few different shades and I absolutely love them on! one  in particular was…

 3. Kylie Gloss “So Cute”$15  If you are a lover of nude tones like me, I was in love with this shade perfect for weekdays during work, it didn’t cake on my lips and lasted for the day.It also has vitamin E in it which hydrations and moisturises the lips.

4.P.S Brow 06 P.S Lip Liner €1.50  I can’t get over this product glides straight onto the lips, prefect for an everyday look! and for €1.50 you can’t go far wrong 🙂


Finishing off the look….

5. Cailyn Gelux Brows €20 shade 04 cocoa if you like a strong brow and are a blonde this is a perfect shade for you. They also have loads of different shades online. It also has a built in brush to help you create the perfect brow shape.

6. Laura Mercier translucent powder(€42)  And to create the perfect finish to your skin.I have started to use the Laura Mercier translucent powder for that perfect porcelain finish! Powdering is one thing I can’t recommended enough it helps set the makeup and prolong wear leaving a natural look without appearing cakey or powdery.


Thanks For Reading 🙂 

Have a great weekend!
