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.

Taking the old necklaces that you don’t wear or like anymore, cut these up until you’re left with individual beads. Place these into the glass jar. You can use whatever colour or size pearls(beads) that you like. This way you can personalize it the way you want.

April Favourites

I’ve been loving a few things this month, products that are not new but definitely incredible. This is my first monthly favourites so let me know if you enjoy this so I know to do one every month. Let’s get right into it…

1. Victoria’s Secret Pure Seduction Body Mist. Oh my goodness,if you were to take every single incredible smelling fruit and flower, mash them up and create a gorgeous scent, this would be it. It is literally the definition of perfection. It just smells so fresh and fruity, with a hint of flirty. I love that the scent lingers on your skin for a long mount of time, but if you do re-spritz, it’s not too overwhelming. I highly recommend this product and the packaging is just so cute. I love this oodles and oodles.

2. The Neutrogena Visibly Clear pink grapefruit facial wash and scrub. I have been using these two product for a while now and my skin is loving it. I use the scrub 2-3 times a week, as I have really sensitive skin, and the facial wash every morning and night. At night I’ve been using it twice, once to get off any make-up and then another pump right after to get rid of any oil build up and dirt. This has really helped clear my skin. And can we just talk about the smell. Oh my goodness it smells heavenly… so Perfect!!!!

3. The TRESemme Heat Defence styling spray. I started recently using this before I blow dry my hair and it has honestly made such a difference. It makes my hair look healthier and it feels a lot softer too. Just a few spritzes and it’s ready to go. It also has a really subtle but lovely scent to it, that I love. Screen shot 2014-04-23 at 15.26.23

 

 

4. The Urban Decay Ammo Palette. I’ve mostly been loving this eye palette this month for the eyeshadow “Shattered”, a gorgeous sparkly turquoise colour. I’ve been wearing this on my lower lash line to add a pop of spring and colour to my eyes. It’s so pigmented and just looks so pretty on. I’ve also been loving “Polyester Bridge” as an inner corner highlight.

5. Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder. So apart from the fact that this bronzer is supa cheap, it also looks beautiful on the skin. And now that the sun is coming out it’s time to unleash our inner golden goddess right? It looks so natural and comes in a variety  of shades to suit your skin tone. I also really like the carvings in the bronzer, however once you’ve used it a few times they start to fade…

6. Lindsey Kelk’s ‘I Heart Hollywood’. I honestly don’t even know where to begin on this book, it’s so good. So a woman flies out to LA with her best friend to interview a hot and famous celebrity, who has come with a few secrets. She goes to lavish parties, gets drunk, makes mistakes, goes shopping, meets cute guys and has fun. It’s such a good and funny read and is perfect for anyone who loves Sex And The City. Which I do btw. There’s a few others, the first one being I heart New York, which is also incredible. I highly recommend checking them out.

DIY make-up brush holder

DIY brush holder

Just a quick DIY for all the make up lovers out there. All you need is:

Soup can

Glue

Marbles (or any other decoration)

Just clean out the old soup can, apply some hot glue on it and arrange the marbles how you like. If you wanted to, you could paint the soup can first and only apply some marbles, instead of filling the whole can with marbles

For another idea, all you need is:

An old candle jar

paint

beads

paper

masking tape

scissors

All you need to do is cut out your desired shape on the paper and stick it to the jar. Then using some paint, beautify that jar! And voila! Your own and unique makeup brush holder. Now just add some beads that can be bought  in any craft store and place some inside the jar. This will keep the brushes upright.

Thanks and good luck. xoxo
