Have you tried this?
If so what color do you think it looks best over? I have it over silver nail polish!

New Purchases...

So I went Christmas shopping and this is what happened :/ 
It just doesn't feel right buying gifts for other people without getting a few things for myself! :)

I first popped in to Lush to see if there were any other products Id like to try!
Heres what I got :
Sample: Rub rub rub shower scrub 
Candy Cane Bubble Bar
Sugar Babe Body Scrub

Then I went to Boots and got this:
Barry M Instant Nail Effect
Boots Honey & Jojoba Hair Mask
Clairol Conditioner

I got this lovely jumper dress in H&M  and Im in love with it

The detail on the shoulders is so pretty! Its very simple yet dressy. 

Last week I got these beautiful  wedges in Korkys! I needed a pair of shoes that would be comfortable enough to walk around in without having to moan about sore feet!

I already wore them once and they were extremely comfortable so Im a happy girl :)

I got other bits and pieces but their not worth mentioning so that is all for my post :)
Happy Christmas

November Favorites

I know we are now gone in to the second week of December but its better late than never :)
Ill divide it in to categories starting with :

Skincare etc

Mac Fix +
I spray Fix + over my make up to blend everything together and get a dewy finish. Its full of vitamins that are good for the skin and you can also just use it as a skin refresher throughout the day

La Roche Posay moisturizer
I've repurchased this moisturizer about 5-6 times. Its meant for oily skin made fragile by over-drying products. I used to have oily skin its now quite dry. It always changes with seasons and this products does a good job at keeping my skin moist without braking me out. 

Lush Grease Lightening
When I break out in spots I use this gel to get rid of them! It doesn't sting like most spot-treatment products do and on the first application reduces redness and puffiness! After about 3-4 days it will clear up the imperfections :)

Lush Tea Tree Water 
This is a popular Lush product. It can be used as a toner or a skin refresher. Personally I like to use it as a toner after cleansing my skin. It doesn't dry me out and keeps my skin nice and fresh.

Aussie Leave-in Hair Conditioner 
I have long blonde hair which can only mean one thing. EXTREMELY DAMAGED!
I always use a leave in conditioner to try and make it more healthy. It has been working wonders on my hair, one down side is that is makes my hair greasy if I spray it on my roots by an accident. 

Queen Helen Mint Julep Masque
I ordered this off Ebay a while ago and have been using it as a weekly mask to dry up any blemishes i may have and to unlock my pores. Its been doing a good job at making my skin blemish-free but nothing seems to tighten my pores. Im on the lookout for a product that can do that :)

Neutrogena visibly clear 2-in-1 
I can guarantee that this will be in my favorites FOREVER! I use it mostly as a face wash rather than a mask. I stopped using this for a week before and broke out in horrible spots. As far as I know many people have raved about this product including Lollipop26 off Youtube!

Plus White 5 minute Whitening Gel
Im a little bit obsessed with bleaching my teeth! Yes I know its so bad but I cant help it :(
At one stage my teeth started to look transparent from so much bleaching and I had to stop!
This is by far the best product Ive tried for bleaching my teeth. It doesnt give results from first application more like 10 but its cheap and doesn't make me sensitive!

Face Products

Clinique Repairewear foundation
I've been using this for about 3 weeks now and so far had no break outs! 
Its a full coverage makeup and very moisturizing which is what I look for in winter time.
It stays on all day and a few girls have asked is my skin really that flawless or is it makeup? Haha if only they knew... :/ 

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Ive hit the pan with this product as Ive been using it literally everyday to contour my face! Everybody knows how good this is so I dont need to go on. 

MAC Peachykeen
This might be my favorite MAC blush out of all the ones that I own. I used to think it was too shimmery but thats because I was very heavy handed with it. I now only use a little bit and it looks stunning. 

MAC Moisturecover and Studio Finish
I use moisturecover under my eyes and studio finish on any blemishes or redness. Ive also repurchased these quite a few times and they are my all time favorites. 

The Balm Highlighter
Loving this on the top of my cheekbones and also as an all over lid colour!  I dont tend to use highlighters because I have very large pores and any shimmer just draws attention to them but this doesn't have any glitter and is very subtle which is just perfect :)


Elf Brow set in "Blonde"
The dark brown side is a gel like substance for outlining you brows and the lighter brown powder is for filling them in. I never used to touch my blows, now its an everyday ritual! I love this products its cheap and cheerful :)

MAC Paintpot in Bare Study
I use this every single day as a base! It definitely does make my eyeshadows last all day.

MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Im a big fan of winged eyeliner! When I think of it I cant actually remember the last time I went outside without my eyeliner! Im nearly hitting the bottom on this so ill be repurchasing soon :)

L'oreal Voluminous Mascara
I had serious transfer problems with this at first but then it dried up a little and now im loving it more than ever. It gives me massive lashes! And that is all I need in a mascara


Sigma ss224
I love all my Sigma Brushes but Ive been loving this for blending out my eyeshadows. Its extremely soft and great quality

Clinique Foundation Brush
I got this as a freebie with a purchase and fell in love with it from the first try. Its very soft and doesnt leave any streaks behind.

MAC 187
I have the Sigma version of this also and i find this one a lot softer and easier to use. It blends out my foundation like nothing else, its definitely my favorite brush!

ELF Flat Top Kabuki
Amazing quality for the price. I use this for powder and it buffs it in lovely. I own a couple of other elf brushes but this is my fave!

I know this post is extremely long I apologize for that but I hope you enjoyed reading it! :)
Let me know what your faves are from last month!

 Christmas is in 5 weeks, can you believe it?
I cant wait for all the nights out, yummy food and pressies :)
If I could have one present it would be a car. But im not getting one so my wishlist consists of smaller items such as make up clothes and other beauty related stuff!

I've been wanting this Sigma Premium Kit since the first day it came out. I have the original Kit which I got last Christmas and I adore it! The quality just cant compare to anything else that I own.
My favourite perfume has to be Calvin Kleins Euphoria! I havent owned it for a while since I dont buy my own perfume ( thats whats birthdays are for ) It reminds me of winter, snow and cold. Im also allergic to a lot of frangnances but not this! It was made for me!!!

I've collected quite a few things from MAC but its an addiction, and i need to feed it!
I need a blush palette so I can depot my blushes, and also some more eyeshadows and lipsticks!
The Holiday palettes are gorgeous and I wouldnt mind getting my hands on one of them!

Liz earle Skincare!
Everyone raves about the cleanse and polish cleanser! I want to try it just because It involves using a muslin cloth. I love skincare, the first step to having even make up is having good skin.
Im not sure if we can get this in Ireland (suprise suprise ) but I can always order it online :)

A new tattoo!
I know exactly what i want and where I want it. Its just the matter of getting it done!
You may think, oh dont you have enough already? Its my body and thats what I want to do with it. I want to be a cool granny with loads of tattoos haha :)
Just like her!


and that is all...
Im not very picky and I dont need expencive gifts! Its the thought that matters!
On this note I will be doing a Christmas Giveaway this week so keep an eye out for it!

Makeup School...

I love it!

Clinique Buys

I was looking to try a new foundation and remembered that a while ago I tried a sample of Cliniques Repairwear. At the time my skin was very oily so the foundation didnt really stay on, after all it is marketed for dry/normal skin. But what did stand out was the amazing coverage. I didnt have to use any concealer and it made my skin look flawless!
Since then my skin has become very dry and dull so hopefully the foundation will keep it nice and moisturized during the winter time!
The store assistant told me that if I purchased another product I would get a free full size concealer and a foundation brush! So I had a look around and decided to get the pore minimizer serum as I do have extremely large pores :/ 
After one day of wearing this foundation I can now tell you that it is by far the best foundation I have ever tried beating MAC studio fix and Estee Lauders Doublewear!
It stayed on all day without getting patchy or flaky.
I cant explain to you how great it actually looks. Not one bit cakey more natural than anything else.
In this case a little bit really does go a long way so bear that in mind!
The foundation is ment for mature skin but its perfectly suitable for young skin! It just has extra coverage and very moisturizing! It didnt cause any breakouts the last time and hopefully wont this time but I will keep you updated!

 The foundation costs €33 and the pore minimizer is €25.
Ive only used the pore minimizer twice and cant tell how good it is, but it did make my skin smooth and acted as a good primer for the foundation.

 The concealer also seems lovely, I just used it to brighten my under eye area and it looked nice!
The foundation brush is quite small but very soft! I used it on one of the girls that evening and she said it felt amazing on her skin. 

Overall I am extremely happy with my purchases and I will be doing a review on both products soon! 
Have you tried any of these products?

Modelling with LA Makeup Academy

Just to put that out there haha...
I will never be one either, Im 5'3 which is too small and I dont have "a model face" if you know what I mean ;)
A while ago I applied to be a model for a Makeup school! A couple of months after they rang me and since then ive been there twice and have some nice photographs to share with you!
The first time the looks they created were high fashion and a going out look!
I had so much fun and it was a great experience since I am training to become a makeup artist myself!

High Fashion

                                                                      Going Out Look

I didnt photoshop the photos, the photographer did! I wasnt happy that he made my hair look grey but what can you do :/

The second time they called was last Wednesday and I went in on Thursday morning!
The first look was natural ( almost no makeup) and a Bridal look!

Natural (I know I look very young with barely any makeup)
                                                                 and a Bridal look

This was the first time I tried a dark lipstick on myself.. I think I will stick with my neutrals and pinks haha!
These photos were only send to me the other day and they havent been touched up yet!
I am not allowed to post these on facebook or anywhere else but here I am breaking the rules just so you guys can see :)

I also took my own photos!

The girl that did my makeup was amazing!
Shes actually a model and is training to become a makeup artist also!
Shes my hero!

                                                            The face chart she was working off
                                               I loved my hair! I now own an extra 30 bobby pins! Score ;)

What do you think of these makeup looks?
Which one is your favourite?
