My Inglot essentials 

I love lots of products from Inglot but here are the items I couldn’t live without. 

No.77 eyeliner gel is a kit staple as it’s the blackest black eyeliner. It does annoy me that it dries out so quickly in the pot but that brings me nicely to my second staple product. 

Duraline makes the liner flow and more pliable. Just add a drop to your mixing palette and add to your liner and you’ve a perfect consistency to get gorgeous lines again. 

The brush pictured is the 30T it’s an angled brush I’ve yet to try but I’m planning on using this for the inner corners of the eye to get a nice clean finish to my lines, I’ll let you know how I get on. 

Do you like Inglot? Have any favourite products you couldn’t do make up without?

Lipstick Heaven

It’s a very personal choice and one that many women & Brides struggle with. A lot of brides are not lipstick wearing lovers and prefer to wear gloss but for your wedding day it’s best to wear a lipstick as it lasts longer than gloss and you won’t need to reapply it so often.

Here I have just a small selection of lipsticks that have been popular with my brides and they range in colours and textures. 

Inglot Liquid Lipstick in Matte finish:

A creamy consistency which dries to a matte finish leaving lips looking perfect for hours, very little touch up needed and didn’t flake or make lips look dry or cracked when I tested them. 

Inglot Matte liquid lip tint #11 

A gorgeous pink/coral lip colour if you want to have a pop of colour on your lips but it’s not overwhelming. A pretty shade which will enhance your lipshape and give your make up extra definition.

Inglot liquid lip tint matte #12

A pretty pinky/red shade for those more daring brides. Perfect for a vintage look along with simple eye make up and a statement lip. 

The Balm, Ima Goodkisser: 

One of my popular coral/pink lipsticks. It’s moisturising and has lots of pigment so very easy to apply and great for lips which are prone to dryness.

The Balm,Mai Billsbepaid :

The perfect nude for Irish skin tones, pretty shade with moisturising properties and a creamy,satin finish.

Catrice,Luminous Lips,#170:

For the bride who wants more colour and is used to wearing a stronger lip colour. This is like a glaze lip colour so perfect for dry lips but will need to be reapplied more regularly compared to a matte lipstick.

Wet n Wild 912c:

One of my more popular deeper nudes with brides. Adding more depth and because of it’s consistency it will have more staying power. 

Mac, Angel:

A timeless bridal pink lipstick and is still very popular for a pretty yet understated lip for the classic bridal look. Because it is a frost finish it will give a sheen to the lips and also great for dry lips.

Mac, Velvet Teddy:

A cult lipstick associated with Kylie Jenner as this was her staple lipstick before she produced her own line of lipkits. It is a deeper nude lipstick with great staying power and pigment so won’t need as much touch ups compared to a gloss or a frosted finish.

Clinique,Blushing Nude:

A gorgeous classic creamy nude shade with a slight sheen to it for a more natural bride.

Mac,Creme Cup:

A classic nude favourite with Mac lovers gives your lips the nude look without being to orangey or overdone. This is complemented very well with a gloss applied over it. Perfect for someone who chooses a very dramatic eye look.

Mac,Hot Gossip:

A pretty pink which is a cremesheen finish. Lovely on the mother of the bride also. Because it’s a cremesheen it will not be drying on the lips.


A pinky brown lipstick. Very popular for the bride who wants a pinky/brown lipstick which isn’t too daring or bright. It has a frost finish so not drying on lips but has the appearance of a creamy lipstick.

YSL Rouge Voupté Shine:

A clear moisturising lipstick which treats and cares for your lips when you apply it. Great on its own to add moisture to dry lips or over a matte lipstick or lipliner to add shine and dimension to lips making them appear larger.

Mac,Pure Zen:

A gorgeous soft creamy peach nude lipstick for those who want a soft kissable lip without too much drama. This is a very easy to wear colour and is gorgeous teamed with a brown smoky eye and coral peach blusher.

Charlotte Tilbury, Nude Kate:

A gorgeous nude with orange/peachy undertones. Gorgeous on tanned/swallow skin and beautiful packaging when you pull it out of your bag to top up your lipstick.

Charlotte Tilbury, Matte Revolution,Between the sheets:

This pink/coral is one of my new found favourites for brides who want a pink which is soft enough for their wedding day. It is matte so will last longer than a cream or frost lipstick.

Rimmel, Kate Moss #45:

I’m so happy I found this lipstick it has been a huge hit with my clients who hate lipstick but need a slight colour on their lips. It is a soft pinky brown and so easy to wear. It suits everyone and is even more gorgeous with a pop of gloss on top. 


 A pretty pink which is the perfect choice for brides or anyone who likes a deeper pink. This would be best suited for people with fuller lips and quite a natural eye make up look. It’s a creamy consistency and although it won’t dry out your lips don’t expect it to be long lasting.

The Balm
, Meet Matt(e) Hughes, Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks:

Sincere, A fabulous mix of a nude with a Mauve/pink/brown hue which gives the lips definition without being too dark. Lasts approx 4hrs+ Gorgeous alone or with a dab of gloss in the centre of the lower lip.

Adoring, A deep,rich,luxurious red with wine/burgundy base. Not for the faint hearted. Would suit a darker skin tone perfectly and would be stunning with a nude lined eye make up look. Would best suit larger fuller lips and not for dry flaky lips as it dries to a matte finish. Again you can expect it to stay put and not transfer for at least 4hours.

Chivalrous, A bright Barbie pink. I’ve had a few brides who will opt for a statement lip and this would be just amazing for that look. It really is as bright and beautiful as you see it here. Not for the faint hearted. You need confidence and flawless make up to pull this off. It really is such a beautiful shade for a summer wedding or a girls night out. Will last 4hrs+ but will need to be reapplied after eating/drinking etc. 

And last but not least my budget favourites:

Penneys P.S. Liquid Lipsticks:

PS Liquid Lipstick #15 Nude:

€2.50 available from Penneys and this is very popular it’s mostly always sold out and impossible to get your hands on. It is a very wearable nude lipstick with quite a tacky,sticky finish so will not be drying and if you lose it you won’t be devastated.Ive used this on top of high end lipsticks to make the lipstick three dimensional and to add the illusion of volume to the lips. A must have for everyone.

PS Liquid Lipstick #02 Peach:

I’ve had many a bridesmaid fall in love with this and just in shock that this is from Penneys. It’s such a gorgeous peach and so pretty on the lips. And at only €2.50 it’s amaze value. 

CATRICE, Volumizing Lip Booster:

I stumbled upon this when I was waiting for my prescription and playing with the testers on the CATRICE stand and was drawn to it. I have used it on every make up application since and everyone has loved the smell,taste and slight tingling sensation it gives to plump your lips. It’s quite a subtle pink so it would go over any lipstick,liner or gorgeous on its own for kissable soft glossy lips. available nationwide and only €3.99.

Liner #77 Gel liner from Inglot

My March Make Up Favourites 

I have compiled just some of my make up favourites I have been mainly using this month. 

Inglot #77 Gel Liner  This liner has become iconic in the make up world and I can vouch for that. It’s pigment is so good the black is the blackest liner I’ve come across. It’s formulation makes it easy to apply and create your desired look from a close to the lash line gentle subtle line look or a dramatic feline flick. It’s also blend-able if applied under eyeshadow to give you a dark smoky eye. Use it in the water line to smoke out the eyes and give a sexy smouldery look. This liner is a staple in my kit and I would be lost without it, I always have a spare. It’s waterproof too which means if you have “leaky eye” or may cry at the wedding you are attending your eyeliner won’t be ruined 💋

Inglot AMC Eyeliner gel is €15 Get it online here Inglot.ie

Bourjois Java Rice Powder

   I picked up this Bourjois Java Rice powder as I’d read quite a few bloggers on about it and I decided to check it out. Always in search of products to give that “glow” and serial Magpie that I am I couldn’t not, could I? 

I ordered it online from Boots and picked it up in my local store two days later. On first impression I fell in love with the cute vintage packaging and couldn’t wait to get home to try it. 

I’ve been using it daily now on myself and a few clients and I love it. I have applied it  all over my face and also just where I want highlighting on cheekbones, down the nose and on collar bones and it’s finish is subtle and gives a gentle glow. I love the rose scent but this does fade throughout the day. I love the little swivel sifter inside which prevents you using too much and can also help wasting should it fall. 

Bourjois Java Rice Powder is €12.99 available at Boots
Make Up For Ever HD Foundation


One of my all time favourite foundations! The coverage is amazing making application time so much faster. It’s so easy to apply and blend and because the coverage is so good it cuts down on concealing. I find after applying Make Up For Ever HD foundation my clients skin is flawless and may only need a minimal amount of concealer for spots which have a lot of redness or stubborn dark under eye colouring which is easily covered with either a few strokes of foundation or a small amount of concealer. 

HD Foundation is an oil-free medium-to-full coverage liquid foundation which covers skin imperfections, while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life. It is available in a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones.

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation is €40.50 available here Make Up For Ever

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon pencils  

 I am in love with Champagne Diamonds and Dark Pearl. 

Champagne Diamonds was designed to bring out the colour gemstone in your blue eyes and add sparkle to your eye make up. 

Dark Pearl is designed to bring out the gemstone sparkle in brown eyes.   

Thes eyeshadow pencils are easy to apply and as the product is soft in texture it doesn’t drag along the eye and is so easy to blend and smudge out. 

I love applying Champagne Diamonds in the inner corner of the eye to open up small eyes and highlight the area adding a bit of sparkle too. 

Dark Pearl gives anyone the ability to create a fast smoky eye. 

If you want to have a subtle smoky eye I suggest applying the pencil as close to the upper and lower lash line and smudging out with your ring finger or a blending eye brush. Applying a small amount of eyeshadow over this an blending will help set it and last you all day. 

For a more dramatic look, apply the Dark Pearl pencil eyeshadow all over your eyelid and blend with a brush or your fingers to smudge out any lines and blend into your socket line. I like to pat on a Similar brown eyeshadow or waned brown to set and make it stay put. 

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon pencils are €25 and you can shop here Brown Thomas

CATRICE Liquid Camouflage High Coverage concealer 


If you haven’t got this concealer in your make up bag or heard the rave reviews about it you need to snap one up! I love colours 010 and 020 

It’s my Beauty Budget Buy of the month.

The light but creamy consistency of this concealer makes it perfect for all your concealing needs. Perfect for hiding spots or blemishes, dark circles or discolouration, pigmentation and also fab for highlighting your features and giving your face dimension. 

I apply it with the applicator and blend under eyes with tip of my ring finger gently patting the product to blend it in. To conceal spots or blemishes I apply the product to the back of my hand and with a cotton bud dot it where needed and blend with a soft brush making sure not to over blend and remove the product. Setting the concealer with some setting powder ensures it will not move for the day. It’s also waterproof so great for the summer months when we are all a bit more active. 

CATRICE Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealers are €3.95 shop online here @ Meaghers.ie or in Penneys and Pharmacies Nationwide
