Make-up Love

Make-up Love

I adore this make up look. I would wear some kind of variation of this eye make up everyday. It can easily be achieved with individual eyelashes, the Urban Decay Naked palette, gel liner, khol liner and lashings of mascara.

Would anyone be interested in me recreating this look?

Stay Fabulous!

The two palettes I chose where the Essence palette and the Sleek Dark palette.

The Essence palette comes with a light and a dark powder so is perfect for both fair and dark hair. This palette also comes with a small eyebrow brush and some very handy eyebrow stencils if you need some help shaping, it also comes with a step by step guide on how to shape you eyebrows perfectly.

VERDICT: I adored both palettes. While the Essence palette is perfect for a day look the wax in the Sleek palette gives a more dramatic eyebrow which is amazing for a night look. I did prefer the wax as I have very long eyebrows so it kept them in place perfectly but the same can be achieved with Essence brow gel. While both palettes come with brushes I prefer to use my own M.A.C angled brow brush as it’s thicker and much easier to apply both powder and wax with, however I did love the mirror and tweezers in the Sleek palette to ensure fabulous brows always! I recommend both palettes to everyone. They are perfect for light to dark eyebrows.

 

Sleek palettes are available from the Beauty Emporium here http://beautyemporium.ie/index.php/brands/sleek-make-up/sleek-brow-kit-light.html

Essence palettes are available from many chemists, Penny’s and Dunnes Stores

National Television Awards: Yay’s and Nay’s of the Red Carpet

The television award show of the year the NTA’s were on last night in London’s O2 arena and the fashion was to DIE FOR! Here are some of my favorite gúna’s and dresses that should have stayed on the hanger.

Image

My absolute favorite dress of the night was this gorgeous navy blue sparkly dress that the amazing Michelle Heaton wore, she looks absolutely stunning. Very elegant and classy.

Image

Holly Willoughby, Nicole Scherzinger and Kim Marsh all look stunning in these black dresses. Holly’s is so flattering on her curves, I adore the neckline. Nicole has got it right again as always, so simple. Her hair is really gorgeous and finishes the dress off perfectly. Kim Marsh designed this dress herself, and what an amazing job she did! The necklace detail accessorizes the dress perfectly.

Image

 

More ladies in black and red! If you haven’t noticed yet I’m a sucker for nice black dress. Tess Daley looks radiant in this red lace dress. So flattering on her gorgeous body! A tad jealous of it. Peter Andre’s new love, Emily MacDonagh looks absolutely stunning in this black dress with lace back. Something I would love to have hanging in my wardrobe. I can’t quite make up my mind on this black dress worn by Faye Tozer, I love the top part but not so sure on the draping bottom half.

Image

And these celebs just got it o so wrong! I ADORE TOWIE but none of them got it right last night! Lucy Mecklenburgh looks awful, far too My Big Fat Gypsy Debs for  my liking, exactly the same as Jessica Wright. This white lycra could do no body justice. And Helen Flannagan looks like she’s just woken up from the night before with blotchy fake tan and panda eyes! I hope they learn in the future!

Shrinking Violet Inch Loss Body Wrap from The Beauty Boutique

After having a baby and over indulging at Christmas my jeans were getting just a little bit too tight! I had seen my favourite beauty salon, The Beauty Boutique in Maynooth were doing Shrinking Violet Inch Loss Body Wrap so I decided to give it ago. I hadn’t heard much about them but had seen several pictures on Facebook showing amazing results

The treatment works by Lipolysis which is applied by oil to break fatty cells into fatty acids for easy, pain-free weight loss.

The treatment started off by my measurements being taken, so that inch loss can be measured. I was then covered in the oil and wrapped in cling film! Yes, cling film! As uncomfortable as it sounds it felt perfectly normal. The oil needs heat to be activated, so the room was heated. I then lay down on a heated bed with a big warm blanket over me and lay down for an hour. It was so relaxing I fell asleep several times. I could have lay there all day! Who knew fat loss could be so relaxing. After an hour the cling film was removed and I was measured again.

 

I couldn’t believe the results! I had lost an amazing 10 inches, that broke down to an inch on everywhere measured. Almost a whole dress size! I would most definitely recommend this wrap from The Beauty Boutique. Fast, pain-free and relaxing. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon!
