Stylpro makeup brush cleaner Pros and Cons

A few months ago, the StylPro brush cleaner hit the beauty world and caused an absolutely massive amount of interest and a rush from beauty lovers to buy the latest gadget. The StylPro was hailed as a game changer for makeup lovers, as it was  going to take the hassle out of cleaning your makeup brushes. Not only would it clean them in seconds, but it promised to dry them too. It sounded too good to be true and with all the positive reviews surrounding it, I was more than a little sceptical. When my very own Style Pro landed in my post box from Meaghers pharmacy, I was more than ready…

How to get big, bouncy, curly hair

If there is one thing I love, it is big massive bouncy and curly hair. My hair is my absolute pride and joy.  I really am like some sort of modern day Samson, as a lot of my confidence lies in how my hair looks. When my hair is on point, my confidence soars. Most of you will already know that I have worn hair extensions for a long time now. For the past 5 and a half months I have been wearing Gold Fever Hair extensions and my god I love them.

Quick and easy everyday hair and makeup to get an extra 10 minutes in bed!

There is one thing I am most certainly not and that is a morning person. I must hit the snooze button at least 5 times every single morning. Even when it comes to the last alarm and i know I have no choice but to get out of the bed, I moan and groan about how I am not cut out of this life! I hate getting up in the mornings, so if I can claw back and extra 10 minutes in bed I am all for that. Over the past few months, I have perfected getting reading in the morning down to a fine art. I have now trained…

A few weeks ago, I uploaded a picture of some makeup I wore to a wedding and so many of you asked me to do a tutorial.

No Fuss work makeup tutorial

I don’t know about you lot, but in the morning I much prefer an extra 5 minutes in bed, than spending the time creating some amazing looking makeup. For me my makeup must be quick, and easy, because I am just not a morning person. Recently a number of you requested that I film a quick makeup look, so while getting ready last weekend, I set the camera up and and just let it roll. I know this video is very far from perfect and I did contemplate not putting it up, because the makeup isn’t as perfect as I would like it to be, but I suppose it is…

A few weeks ago, I gave a shout out on Facebook to see what you guys would like to see featured on The Beautiful Truth.  There was so many brilliant suggestions, but one comment that caught my attention was to post about how I get ready for a night out.

Bridal Makeup series : The Makeup Mentor

Once a bride has her dress, the next thing to focus on is hair and makeup. With so many makeup artists out there it is hard to know which one will work best for you and make you look like the beautiful bride you always thought you would be on your wedding day. Even though I am writing about beauty everyday, I have found the task of picking a makeup artist extremely difficult. At least with the dress, I know more or less how I will look in it on the day and there is no chance of anything looking dramatically different. However, when it comes to makeup, you may…

Kohl Cosmetics series: How to achieve flawless skin, contour and highlight

I used to think that once I had some sort of foundation on my face, that was it I was done. There was nothing to it, but lashing on a bit of foundation with your fingers!!! My god, there is just so much more to it. Recently during my Kohl Cosmetics makeup course in Brown Sugar, I picked up a number of tips and tricks for perfecting a flawless base and giving your face life. Foundation First up, foundation. For me this is the most important part to having perfect looking makeup. Once you have picked out your perfect foundation, it is all about application. When applying foundation avoid dotting…

Powder Face – When makeup goes wrong

A little while ago, pictures were published of Angelina Jolie sporting some very funky looking makeup. While Angelina still looked stunning, it was very hard to look past the powder around her eyes, forehead, cheeks and chest.Angelina is the closest thing to perfect any human being can come, so to see her fall victim to this powder misshape, made her a little bit more normal in my eyes. Ange had fallen foul to the dreaded ‘ Powder Face’. This isn’t the first time “powder face” has made an appearance. Many celebrities, including, Miley Cyrus, Eva Longoria, Nicole Kidman and even the gorgeous Jon Hamm have found themselves splashed across newspapers…

Summer Makeup Tutorial

A number of weeks ago, I posted a picture tutorial on a copper smoky eye. A number of you have contacted me since, asking me to do another post like this, so finally here it is. All of you know already, that I have no formal training in makeup, so there may be some technical things that aren’t right, but to be honest, I like it and I have gotten many compliments on this particular look. The look I chose, was the one I wore in my Glossybox Youtube Video. This is a 2 colour look, that will suit all eye colours, but seriously makes blue eyes pop. It is the perfect…

A few weeks ago, I stuck a picture up of a copper smoky eye. This is my go to night time look for the Spring/summer.  A number of you emailed me and asked if I would do a tutorial on this look.
