Current Favourites

It is a long time since I posted a favourites video! I am not sure why because they are my favourite types videos to watch!! The past few months have been a whirlwind of new products releases and different events in my own blog life. So I thought to go along side the favourites video, I would give you all a little up date on things that have gone on with the blog. March saw me head on an amazing trip to Barcelona with Flormar for the launch of their new extreme Matte lipsticks. These lipsticks are really beautiful. There are 8 shades to pick from and while they are…

Current Makeup Favourites

It is a very long time since I have recorded a monthly favourites. In fact I would nearly go as far as to say it has been two years!! With life getting in the way, YouTube fell to the wayside. However, 2017 is the year I am getting back on the YouTube horse and bringing you more video. I’ve tried more new makeup than ever before and I have so many bits that I want to share with you. So expect even more favourites ! I have also grown a pair and started to record some makeup tutorials. I always felt my lack of makeup qualification held me back. I’ve…

Blank Canvas Master Series One Palette Tutorial

I am not normally one for tutorials. In fact, I tend to avoid them like the plague. I often feel that my lack of qualifications in makeup, makes me hold back in showing how I apply my makeup. However, I’ve come to the realisation, that qualifications are not a big deal for things like youtube. So I have decided to give tutorials another go. As I tend to flash the other products that I use quite quickly, I thought I would tell you a little about them here. Push Rudy Nudy You may have heard me talk about this product before, but this is honestly one of the best, if not…

2016 Budget favourites

2016 budget favourites

What a year 2016 was! For so many, 2016 will be chalked down as one to forget. It was the year that saw a multitude of celebrity deaths. World politics went a little of track and there seemed like there was a lot of personal heartache on my timeline.  However, for me, 2016 was one of the best yet. As 2016 was the year I became a mammy! I am sure you’ve heard it again and again, but there really is nothing that can prepare you for the love you feel for a tiny human. Even the sleepless nights are manageable, as you’re getting up to feed the tiny person you made and love!…

What’s inside The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar?

Beauty advent calendars are a big deal! Forget opening a door everyday to reveal a little square of chocolate, as for most people this no longer cuts it when it comes to advent! We have now upped our game,  wanting all sorts of luxurious beauty goodies behind our advent calendar doors instead. There is no arguing the fact that beauty calendars are not cheap. With promises of a large beauty bounty, luxurious samples and full size products, there is an ever growing amount of beauty calendars hitting the market each christmas. Unfortunately not all of these calendars are created equal and they don’t always live up to the hype that…

My Ride or Die products

With so many products coming through the door  everyday both from generous companies and from my secret online shopping escapades, I tend to switch up the products I use quite a bit. I always make sure to give products thorough testing before I review them, but I often find that once the blog post is written, it is onto the next product that needs reviewing. However, even though I change my products quicker than the Irish weather on a summers day, I always have my die hard products that I fall back on. My ride or die products. Ride of die products are those items of makeup that you continually repurchase…

A few weeks ago I was sent a number of products to try out from the Wet n Wild new releases.

Like with any makeup brand, there will be products that suit you and some that don’t. For today’s post I have picked out my star buys from the new releases that not only hold their own with other affordable brands, but in some cases rival that of their higher end counterparts.

October Favourites

It’s that time of the month again. No not the time where I sit on the couch, cry and eat lots of chocolate, but my monthly favourites time. I’ve tried many new products this month, that I am just dying to tell you about. However, as usual, I forgot to include a product that I have absolultey adored in my video, so I thought I would tell you about it here before you watch my favourites below. Over the past few weeks there has been an awful lot of hype surrounding the Cocoa Brown instant tans. I would say at this point almost every single blogger has mentioned them or written…

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. While I have worn other extensions before, the real difference with Gold Fever is in the quality of…

Christian Louboutin Wedding shoes unboxing

By the time this post goes live I will be a married woman. A scary thought!!! I mean how in god’s name can I be someones wife? Surely a wife in an apron wearing, iron loving, brown bread backing homely woman? Rather than a makeup loving hobbit!! A few weeks ago I posted a picture on Facebook of the bag in which my wedding shoes came in, and so many of you asked to see them. So I thought rather than just posting a picture, I would do something a little bit different and I decided to record an unboxing video. It was actually Laura from My Makeup Perspective that…

A little Mac haul

Ok so I am using the term haul a little loosely here as technically a haul is only a haul if you hand over your hard earned cash, but this week I received some seriously wonderful Mac products that I just had to share with you immediately.

My makeup collection and makeup storage ideas

This post has been a very long time coming. For months I have threatened to record a video showing how I store my makeup.  I held off recording for a very long time as I felt the storage wasn’t exactly how I wanted it. Now, I have realised, that while it may not be perfect yet, it may still give you guys ideas on how to store your makeup. The vast majority of my makeup storage is very affordable and from Ikea. The desk is the Malm dressing table and cost €100. It has a pull out drawer with good space and comes with a glass top. The long drawer unit is the Alex…

Ok so take the name of this tutorial with a pinch of salt. I was stuck for a name! It’s really only the lips that look anyway Kylie Jenner inspired!! A few weeks ago, when heading off to Galway for the ITWBN event, I posted a picture of the makeup above. So many of you emailed me, or posted on the picture itself, that you would love to see a tutorial. As it is such an easy look to do, I decided to recreate this look in a video, which I have linked down below. I am not trained in makeup, so if I can do a look like this,…

Easy night-time makeup Tutorial

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.
