Kate Beckinsale at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Kate Beckinsale looked amazingly illuminated at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. She wore the most beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown. Kate’s makeup artist Molly Stern worked with Rimmel London to give her a Rimmel London edge. Molly began by prepping Kate’s skin with Terry’s Sève de Rose ultra-glow serum and then sparingly applied Chantecaille Future Skin…

Tom Ford Bronzer

You all know that I am in love with anything that Tom Ford makes. I have a healthy obsession with the Texan which I share with Phyl Clarke, the Beauty Editor with the Irish Times, so you can imagine my raging jealousy when Phyl told me that she had met and had dinner with him…

Sisley’s Perfect Pout

I am sorry about the radio silence this past week, I have been incredibly busy. But the good new is that I have also been busy testing out new products and I will be reviewing later today. Firstly I want to let you all know about Sisley’s new red lipstick. I used it last Friday…

On Location

Today I’m working on a look-book for an Irish fashion designer. We have an incredible Hawthorne tree from Connemara on set and even part of a Connemara wall! It’s very exciting. The girl that we are using has the most beautiful skin, so I’m only using Giorgio Armani Maestro, no need for any concealer! Making…

Adele at the Grammy Awards

How fabulous did Adele look at The Grammy’s? I loved her vintage inspired Valentino dress and even more I love that it was so colourful. Adele always seems to wear dark clothes when she is going on a big night out, like most of us I guess. But she really did look amazing in that…

In my humble opinion this look was one…

Get the look, Katy Perry Grammy Awards 2013

This weekend saw many red carpet looks that were great, and some that were not so good, but we won’t focus on those! One that really stands out for me was Katy Perry at the Grammy’s last night. She normally goes for high drama looks and this year it was so pared back and beautiful,…

Voya

I got myself some happy yesterday morning in House of Fraser in Dundrum, a Voya Reed Diffuser. I opened it this afternoon and at this moment my whole house smells of the AMAZING scent. My sitting room smells like a fancy Spa it’s perfect and it only costs €40.00. Have your tried this 100% Irish…

Marks and Spencer’s Your Beauty

I was intrigued to go to the launch of the new beauty hall Your Beauty in Marks and Spencer last week. I had no idea what to expect, somewhere in my mind I thought it would be lots of rose scented hand lotions. How wrong was I. It has some of the most amazing products…

NYC Valentines Collection

NYC have done it again! They never disappoint me. As you all know I think this brand is one of the best budget brands available. Not only are the nail polishes amazing value (which is enough sometimes) but the quality feels like a nail polish that is 10 times as expensive. And with these Valentines…

Jason Wu collaborates with Lancôme

So Lancôme USA have announced that they are to collaborate with American designer of the moment Jason Wu for a makeup collection for Autumn 2013. This sounds like a great mix of talent. Jason has been really getting big on the international fashion scene for the past few years and is favoured by Michelle Obama….
