Mac must haves

Have you ever gone into a Mac store and wanted to make a purchase but been completely overwhelmed by all the products? With so many products to pick from, it is hard to know exactly what is worth parting with your cash for. To help you treat yourself to something special, I have picked out […]

Mac mineralise skin finish Natural in Give Me Sun

A few weeks ago, my sister treated me to a makeover in Mac Galway for my hen party. As some of you may be aware, when you get your makeup done in Mac, the cost of the makeover is redeemable in product. I went for a full makeover, so that meant that I was able […]

Sleek Face Form Contouring and blush Kit

Who doesn’t love contoured cheekbones? I have a fairly round face, so contouring is a must for me so that my face has some shape and dimension. I personally prefer to work with powder products to achieve the contoured look, as I find that cream products can look a little harsh during the day time. […]

Products for highlighting

Like with contouring products, Highlighting products come in both cream and powder form.

Brushes for contouring

Contouring is everywhere lately. It seems every week there is a new method or product to help us achieve the contoured look of Kim Kardashian. I am going to put my hands up and admit, I am not good at contouring. There are some nights when my contouring is on point and my cheekbones look cracking […]

Inglot AMC cream concealer number 73

Inglot Cream concealer number 73 The word contouring fills me with both fear and excitement. There are days when my contouring is seriously on the ball, and then there are days that I look like I have given myself a 5 o clock shadow! Ever since Kim K posted the famous picture of her contouring […]

Inglot Sparkling Dust review

Inglot Sparkling Dust number 2 If you are someone who loves a strong highlighter, then this is the post for you. A few weeks ago I was introduced to the Inglot Sparkling dust, while attending a makeup masterclass with From Matte to Metallic. From the very first time I used it, I knew myself and […]

You can either go for a shade that is close to your skin tone, or as I like to do a shade slightly lighter […]
