In The Makeup Chair

This blog post is waaaayy overdue, but I have just been so busy. So two weeks ago on Saturday the 19th, I went to the Sinead Cady meet-up and makeup lesson in The Benefit Boutique in Dublin. It was the prettiest event that I have ever been to. I have been to the Benefit Boutique before, but it was just a totally different atmosphere that day. First of all, loads of people were coming out after having just met Sinead, completely giddy and clutching mini Benefit bags. Me, and a lot of other people, were walking in, completely giddy because wewere about tomeet her. There were so many people there it was pretty crazy.

Once we went in, we got a Benefit voucher and our tickets. Then, we were all brought up to a room upstairs in the building. And oh my goodness, the room was literally instagram perfect. There were even cupcakes, prosecco and schloer. And the cupcakes were so yummy.

Then Sinead started talking and we all sorta let out an awwwww, because she is literally stunning in person. And so cute. She gave a really in-depth makeup tutorial on her sister, explaining everything. It was super helpful and two girls that work at Benefit would explain the products in between. Plus those girls were really funny, so it made everything even more enjoyable. Once that was done, which took over an hour, we got to ask questions and then we all went downstairs back to the boutique. Which is where some girls got their nails done, others their eyebrows, others their hair, and me, my makeup. Which looked so pretty, I never wanted to wash it off.

Then Sinead came down again and eek, started talking to us and took some pictures! Even better, she then posted a picture of her and me on her Instagram and used it in the thumbnail in her YouTube video. I literally freaked!!! Plus, when I posted a picture of us on my Instagram, she commented on it. She was just really kind and extremely lovely to talk to.

B3 aahhh that’s me on the right!!!

Once she had gone around to everyone and talked to them, for a really long time too, she thanked us all and went back upstairs.

This is when I had a little nosey around the store to see what I could buy. I went with the foundation, because its really good and makes my skin look flawless. I went to pay and also got the Fake Up concealer, a mini primer and amine Benetint. Plus I got a really cute Benefit tote bag, which I will obviously be using.

Herbal Essences Nearly Naked Dry Shampoo Review

Hello everyone,

I’m not the biggest fan of dry shampoos, just because I’d rather wash my hair and actually have it feel fresh. Maybe it’s because I just haven’t found a really good dry shampoo. Until now that is…

I was in Boots the other day and had a look at the dry shampoo section. Just as I was about topick up the Batiste on (I’ve used it before, but wasn’t too impressed) I saw this one. What caught my eye was the design and I know you should’nt judge a book by its cover, but Iwas glad I did in that moment.

First of all, it has NO parabens and NO colourants. In total, it has 15 ingerdients, all of which are quite natural. The Batiste one and Tresemme dry shampoo had waaaay more than that. The ingredient list was literally so small and long, I felt like I need magnifying glasses to read them.

So I bought the Herbal Essences once and tried it out once I got home.

First of all, there’s no white residue. Now I have naturally brown hair and there was no white! And it does come out white. Once you spray it into your hair, it almost feels wet, but also really cold. What I would imagine dry ice to feel like, if you were able to touch that stuff without burning your hands off. It is literally the weirdest andcoolest feeling ever.

But let’s get to the actual doing part. It provides so much volume and just takes the grease away. Like a little fairy that just magically appears and swipes it away.
The only thing  i noticed is, that my hair begins to almost feel like I backcombed it throughout the day. It still looks great and natural but begins to feel a bit strange.

But it’s just so cheap, about €2.40 or so and definitely worth picking up the next time you’re in Boots.

Enjoy and Good Luck xx

That autumn feeling

Sitting on a park bench, toes tucked in nicely into some black boots, knees warmed by pulled up socks and fingers tightly knit around a hot drink. A single red and orange leaf slowly falls into a puddle nearby, making the water crackle and dance around it. I take out the magazine I just bought and flick trough the pages, finding new trends and ways to wear those summer dresses. I look down at my coat and smile to myself, thinking that I may have worn something trendy for once. I put the magazine back into my handbag, take out my mirror and touch up the burgundy lipstick before I jump up and walk through the arch of red  trees. A nearby stall is selling pumpkin pies, another freshly ground coffee, the other some crepes. The aromas of Autumn fill the air and make me so happy I grin like an idiot to myself.

DIY Perfume Display

 

Hello everybody,

Today I have a really simple DIY for all of your perfumes. This is so cute and you can totally customize to suit your own personal style. So lets get started….

What you will need:
A picture frame
Pictures
Scissors
Perfume

Taking your picture frame, I bought mine at IKEA, take out the picture that comes with it and set everything aside.

Taking the pictures that you printed out or may already have had, figure out which one you would like to have on display. I picked one that would go with my perfumes, which have apinkish theme going on.

Cut your picture to fit the frame if it already doesn’t.

It’s easiest if you put some tape to the back, to make sure it is completely secure and won’t budge.

Then, all you have to do is out your chosen picture back into the frame and put it all together.

Last of all, place your frame flat on a surface and then arrange your perfume on top.
