Get the look, BUFF Makeup

Last week I was a guest artist at BUFF Makeup Beauty Evening in Hession Hairdressing in Clontarf. I created two look on the night. One was a super simple look with very subtle makeup and a strong red lip and the other was a more dramatic look, perfect for the party season. This look is…

The big chill is coming!!!

So, winter is finally here, for real. This week we are supposed to get temperatures as low as -5 in certain parts of the country. How will we cope??? After such an amazingly long summer and autumn we are not prepared at all. Our skin is not ready at all for such horrid temperatures so…

Dick Page, one of my makeup heros

Dick Page is one of my all time makeup heros. I find his work beautiful. He never overdoes makeup, skin is always clear and perfect with the right amount of drama when needed, or no drama at all if he thinks that that’s what’s needed. He is world renowned and has worked with some of…

L’Oreal Nude Magique CC Creams

Staying on the CC theme from earlier this morning I am going to review L’Oreal’s Nude Magique CC Cream. As you all know I am a little suspicious of all these BB and CC creams. In my head they were just tinted moisturisers with a different name. That was of course these totally changed my attitude!…

Rouge Ecstasy from Giorgio Armani

I love multi-use products, and these little gems from Giorgio Armani are mega! As with all Armani lipsticks they do not require a lip liner, they have technoligy that makes them non-bleed. How deadly is that?? The new Rouge Ecstasy range has even more to offer, they have an unprecedented “CC’ technology inside. The CC…

Payot Skincare

I LOVE French products, they always seem to include healing properties alongside great skincare.  This brands life spans over 90 years, and some of the formulas have not changed since the 1920’s. If the company did change the formula they kept the main active ingredients just made the textures more suitable to todays high standards….

Reese Witherspoon at The 20th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards

The 20th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards were held at the weekend. Reese Witherspoon was honoured at the ceremony. For me Reese is one of those starlets who never fails to impress with her makeup. She always has the most perfect skin. She never looks over-done, which must be hard knowing that the worlds press…

Movember is back for the sixth year, it’s the time of year that us blokes get to try out the facial hair of our fathers generation, while raising vital funds to help combat men’s health problems. It’s not just for fun either, the whole point of Movember is to raise funds for and awareness for…

Crème de la Mer, limited edition vanity case

I know that it’s only the 1st of November and the last this that you want to be hearing is the word Christmas, but let me tell you all I have gotten for the past month is details of christmas stuff and I have managed to keep it to myself until now. When I saw…
