Arnotts will welcome top influencer Pippa O’Connor to the newly opened Arnotts Shoe Gallery this September to host a stylish shoe and fashion workshop and show for customers.
To celebrate the recent opening of the new Shoe Gallery, Ireland’s largest women’s footwear department, Arnotts has teamed up with Pippa to host a styling segment on Saturday, 2nd September 2017 at 12pm.
Speaking about the event, Pippa said: “I’m delighted to be hosting a shoe and fashion styling segment in the newly opened Shoe Gallery on First Level in Arnotts! Everyone knows I have a weakness for shoes so I’ll be spoilt for choice in the biggest shoe department in Ireland! And now that it’s right beside the womenswear department, I don’t have too far to go to pair up my shoes with the new AW17 collections!”
The styling segment will take place in the Shoe Gallery on First Level where Pippa will be showcasing her “must have” shoes for the AW season, and styling them using pieces from her favourite brands from the AW17 womenswear collections in her own, signature Pippa style. Brands from the Shoe Gallery will include some of the newest additions by Jonak and Michael Kors, while Pippa will also be choosing from some of the newest brands in the womenswear department, including SET, Samsoe & Samsoe, Millie Mackintosh, Suncoo and Max & Co.
Throughout the styling segment, Pippa will be talking through each of her chosen looks and sharing what she loves about the upcoming AW17 season.

While we hope the summer sun stays around, it can really take its toll on our bodies. Exposure to harmful UV rays and heat dehydrates the body and can lead to noticeably dry skin, hair, lips and nails. This calls for a little TLC from Catrice Cosmetics!
Summer is best time to embrace that au-natural glow – nourish, revitalise and achieve this healthy look with some essentials from Catrice Cosmetics, available from Penneys stores and pharmacies nationwide now.
Here are just a few nourishing summer beauty essentials by Catrice:
For nourished Skin…
Catrice Prime & Fine Nude Glow Primer, €4.95
Radiate your skin with the latest primer from Catrice which acts as the perfect base for foundation or can simply be worn on its own for a natural glow, the hottest beauty trend right now! The formula is enriched with nourishing pomegranate oil and contains light reflecting pigments for an instant healthy sheen. The result is a soft focus finish, a silky smooth complexion and minimised appearance of skin irregularities.
For nourished Eyes…
Catrice Sensitiv’Eyes Volume Mascara, €4.95
This new mascara gives ultra-volume and ultra-black look thanks to high-purity pigments. The mascara has been opthalmologically tested and is suitable for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses. Formulated with argan oil and panthenol ingredients the texture is long-lasting, easy to remove and has a pampering effect! A nourishing product with no compromise on performance…
For nourished Lips…
Catrice Prime and Fine Multitalent Lip Scrub & Balm, €4.50
Say goodbye to dry chapped lips (which are almost unavoidable in the summer sun) with this 2in1 lip hero that combines a fine lip peel with a gentle caring balm. Natural cherry pit particles gently remove dead skin flakes while valuable ingredients like apricot oil and shea butter provide pampering care. The Scrub & Balm perfectly preps lips so lipstick glides over the lips smoothly for a flawless look.
Comfort, colour and care all in one – we’re head over heels for with the Lip Cushion collection! Available in 6 shades, this creamy lipgloss contains avocado oil for extra nourishment and a supple texture. The ultra-soft jumbo sponge applicator allows soft and easy application of the medium-pigment gloss.
For nourished Nails…
Catrice 9in1 Nail Elixir, €3.50
The 9in1 Elixir contains nine selected ingredients with caring properties: vitamin A + E, pro-vitamin B5, jojoba and grape seed oil, aloe vera extract, lemon oil, camellia oil and sunflower seed oil. The elixir can be worn alone for beautifully groomed nails or applied as a base coat. It is fast-drying, strengthening, prevents discolorations and chipping, seals, fills ridges, revives the healthy shine of the natural nail and offers protection. What else would your nails need?!

Kiehls is opening its first store in Cork, opening on 18th November 2016 at Debenhams Department Store, Patrick Street, Cork.
I have been a lover of Kiehls since I worked in Blu Eriu many years ago.
This shoot cover was a challenge as the studio and make up room were so hot. One model had a slight reaction to make up and one model was over heating but I think you’ll agree it all worked out in the end and the result is a gorgeous Magazine cover.
I used everything from Blank Canvas Cosmetics including:
- Pippa Palette
- Master Series One Palette
- Contour cream palette
- Powder contour palette
Lashes were from my favourite BABYDOLL Cosmetics
Nails were manicured and gelish applied by the talented and funny Michele Burke
The Foundation I used was Make Up For Ever HD
Hair was styled to perfection by the hair maestro Glen Cullen assisted by the selfie king Cian Kavanagh.

Styling by Carmel Ann Daly
Flowers were from A Room In Bloom

Sorry it’s late being posted, I’ve been busy with weddings and shoots.
It’s hard to pick just a few items but these products have really stood out for me in the last month so are worthy of a mention.
YSL DESSIN DU REGARD STYLO WATERPROOF EYELINER:This little beauty came to my rescue on a few occasions as its staying power is brilliant. I recently had a shoot where the model had “leaky eye” and nothing would stay put under her lower lashes and as I was going for a smoky look I was determined to find something to stick. I pulled out this YSL pencil and blended it under the lower lashes and it worked and didn’t budge. The more poking and prodding you do to an already irritated eye can be a recipe for disaster but with this pencil there was no need to keep at it after I blended it. Would be amazing for people with sensitive eyes and anyone who wants their liner to stay put.
Products from The Balm:
How about them apples palette: delicious creamy cheek and lip colours perfect for summer and just gorgeous for summer.
Nude Dudes palette: A perfect selection of nude eye colours to create any smoky eye or natural pretty look you desire. Easy to blend and a mirror included, perfect for your handbag.
Time Balm Primer: smoothes out skin and blurs fine lines to give skin a great base before applying foundation. I only apply this to the t-zone and its so light and easy to work with.
Mary Lou Manizer: because every girl should have this highlighter in their possession. It’s not famous for no reason, it is truly a beautiful highlighter and brightens up a flat make up and adds a glow to tired looking skin.
Mai Bills be Paid lipstick: my most recent favourite nude lipstick. Creamy and moisturising and gorgeous to accentuate gorgeous lips.
Penneys individual eyelashes are so brilliant when you have limited time to apply lashes but your client doesn’t like strip lashes as they come in little clusters and so make application faster yet give the same amazing result.
