Invisible Fluid Makeup

It’s rare that I try different foundations, since I started doing makeup about 800 years ago I have always used Face and Body from MAC. On a recent makeup shopping trip I decided to buy Estée Lauder’s Invisible Fluid Makeup. And can I tell you I think it’s perfect, it gives you great face! And the…

Throwback Thursday!

This is from a shoot that I worked on years ago! We shot it in Rathfarnham Castle, a woman saw Nikki from the park behind and thought she has seen the ghost of the Castle. Mella Travers was the photographer and Zara Cox did the hair. Nikki Bonass is the model, one of Irelands greatest…

Umit Kutluk Fashion Show

Last Wednesday I worked on Umit Kutluk’s first solo fashion show in his beautiful studio/salon in Merrion Square. The clothes are beautiful, amazing quality fabrics and the construction is sublime. The show was styled by über stylist Catherine Condell, so of course it was a beautifully stylish affair. Michael Leong did the hair which made…

CHANEL N°5 Bath & Body Line

Chanel are bringing some seriously glamourous things to the counter in November, perfect timing for gifts for a certain holiday that happens at the end of the year. If you know someone who wears N°5 then any of these girts will be perfect. N°5 was Gabrielle Chanel’s first fragrance and it launched in 1921. She described it as…

Sigma Brushes

  I am a total control freak when it comes to my brushes. They need to be great quality and they must be able to be washed multiple times per week. As a makeup artist you have to wash your brushes every time you use them. In the past when I got some brushes that…

Modern Muse from Estée Lauder

I know I am a little late with this post, Modern Muse has been available for a couple of months now. It is the biggest launch from power house Estée Lauder in the past decade. It is a wonderfully fresh scent with lots of my favourite note, Jasmin, but there is also a beautifully spiced woody…

Shu Uemura Lash Curlers

For years the Shu Uemura lash curlers have been the go to lash curlers for makeup artists. The reason that they work so well is how they are shaped. They patented the hinges so that no other company can have the same type of curler. The silicone insert is also very important when it comes…

Clarisonic, Mia 2

I am really a spoiled brat, getting free makeup and skincare all of the time. I do try share the love with you guys by having the competitions. Because I get so much stuff it can take me a while to get to try some of the things. I recently received a Clarisonic Mia 2,…

Tom Ford, Mens skincare range

It is no secret that I adore Tom Ford, ever since he was the chief designer with Gucci and YSL I have had a healthy obsession with him. One that my husband and bank manager would rather I did not have! Picture me in the Tom Ford boutique in New York buying a pair of sunglasses…

I saw on twitter that Derek Lam, AMAZING New York based designer and Tom ,  one of my idols and creative director for Estee Lauder, have partnered for a collection that is coming out in January, I am not sure if the collection will be available  here, but I really hope it will be!

Clarins, The perfect eye shadow palette

I know that it is only October, so I am sorry for mentioning Christmas, but I really don’t think these gifts from Clarins will be available for long. Of course as always you can choose a skincare, makeup or fragrance set that will be in stock but they have some things that are limited stock…

On a recent trip to London, I was lucky enough to get an appointment with facialist to the stars Emma Hardie. I had met Emma in Dublin when she was here to launch her range in Arnotts. When I met her here I fell in love with her, her attiude to skincare is amazing, but…
