Foundation tips

Have you ever bought foundation from a counter only to realise it’s too dark for you? Or find that you need a lighter foundation in winter but don’t want to buy several different shades?01

 

My solution for this is…. White foundation! Simply mix up some of your existing foundation and add a few drops of white foundation until you reach your desired perfect match. Do a swatch test on your jaw line to make sure there is no difference between face and neck and avoid the mask effect!

White foundations are available from M.A.C. Cosmetics in Brown Thomas and Illamasqua available from DebenhamsIRE.

To make your foundation last longer apply a primer first. Primers make the skin smoother and can help diminish small lines and open pores to help you achieve a more flawless looking finish.

To get the most out of your foundation an economical tip is to apply foundations with clean hands & blend with a foundation brush as sponges can absorb a lot of your products and be very wasteful!

Celebrity Apprentice on TV3

Celebrity Apprentice on TV3 has hit our screens with a bang and there are personality clashes all over the place.

The issue is that they are all very strong individuals and successful in their own right.

My favourites are Amanda Brunker, Journalist,Author,Former Miss.Ireland and Mum to two boys.

And Daniella Moyles, Model & T.V. Presenter who recently did an interview with me disclosing her secrets to her perfect brows,skin and make up. I was delighted Daniella won the first challenge as Project Manager and donated the cash to Friends of St.Lukes as they helped my family when my Aunty Dolores passed away in St.Lukes earlier this year & Myself,my Mum and my cousins and their friends raised money for St.Lukes at the Flora womens Mini Marathon.

I have worked with both Amanda and Daniella and they are both gorgeous people with very different personalities.

Both are in my eyes winners but who will win? I guess we will just have to watch every week to find out!

 

Here’s some shots of Amanda’s shoot for Sunday world:

For this make up look I went darker, more feline and almost ballet-esque with the make up.

A full list of products used for make up,hair and nails will be posted here on the blog very soon.

Water Wipes – A kit essential

I’m loving using these wipes on set,at shoots,weddings and because they are natural and suitable for sensitive skin I’ve even been using them at home on my daughter too! Great for removing make up, taking the bulk from make up brushes before using brush cleaner(economical).

Perfect bed side table essential for those late nights when you are too tired to do your skin care regime in your bathroom. A swipe with a Water Wipe will remove your make up so you can sleep guilt free and avoid waking up with the panda eye look!

Water Wipes are made in Ireland so that’s another reason to try them for yourself.

Water Wipes are available in supermarkets and pharmacies throughout the country.

Wow Brown

I just love receiving goodies in the post and cannot wait to try this out. I’ve heard so much about Wow Brown and now I’m so happy I get to try it out myself in the comfort of my own home.

It’s exactly what I need as winter has set in and my pale skin has become even paler.

I’ve tried lots of false tans in my time and I’m extremely fussy about application, wearability, how the tan fades and how long it stays perfect so will be giving Wow Brown my undivided attention in preparation for going out this weekend.

Review on Wow Brown will be posted early next week

Bella Pierre Make Up Review

For the past few weeks I have been using these gorgeous products on clients on shoots,weddings and debs make up applications.

And it’s safe to say that I am in love with them.

The mineral foundations are so soft and light on skin and I was surprised by the coverage that can be achieved when using my Blank Canvas foundation buffer brush to apply it.

The loose powder blushes and bronzers are so pretty, the colours are so universal and I’m loving Autumn Glow applied to apples of cheeks with my Real Techniques blusher brush, it gives a flush of youthful colour to the base and lifts even the tiredest of my clients.

The Catwalk lipstick is so fantastic to have in my kit as the colour suits everyone and when the clear Bella Pierre gloss is added I achieve the most kissable youthful lips on each client.

The eye shadow powder stack is just brilliant and I especially love the range of colours and “champagne” is just so beautiful when applied to inner eyelid to make any accompanying eye shadow pop!

The fact that these products have absolutely no chemicals is even more reason to have them in my vast kit of Make Up and I will say it again I love them!

Does make up change how you feel about yourself?

Yes definitely although I don’t plaster myself I do think it makes you feel more confident. The key to make up is wearing it in a way that accentuates your features not wearing to much that it hide what’s underneath.

Striking smokey eyes and strong gel liner flicks for a stunning evening look.
