Makeup Must Haves

October 20, 2018

Hi guys,

Today I am talking all about makeup! Seeing so much makeup online all the time it can be hard to know what is genuinely good. The below products are all favourites of mine. They are some of my go-to products and ones that I think really work! You can see me using them some of them and what shades I use on my Instagram (all saved to my ‘Makeup’ highlight).

If you have any must-haves that aren’t included below let me know so I can try them 🙂

Chat soon,

My Go-To Tan: Iconic Bronze

October 1, 2018

Hi guys,

If you were following my social media you’ll know I spent the last few days in Tenerife with my friend Ciara. I was invited over to the launch event of the Hotel Vulcano rooftop Up Terrace (where I took these pics – the views are amazing!) We had such a fun few days and an interesting journey with Veuling (never flying with them again haha) – you can watch my vlog of the trip here.

Anyway one of the questions I got asked a lot on the trip was what tan I was wearing. If you follow my social media you’ll know I’m an Iconic Bronze ambassador. I absolutely love their tan, and have been using it for almost a year now. It’s October now so it’s safe to say my summer tan has well and truly faded. I love being nice and dark so my go-to tan is the Iconic Bronze dark mousse – which I applied the night before travelling, I slept with it on and washed it off that morning. I find it applies really smoothly with the Iconic Bronze mitt (no streaks) and lasts really well (doesn’t go blotchy). You can see more about the tan and how I apply it here. It’s approx €13.99 (depending on where you buy it) and I’d usually get a month or two out of a bottle if I was applying regularly. You can buy in Penneys/Primark or in pharmacies nationwide as well.  Continue Reading…

The Best Beauty Websites for Online Shopping

March 5, 2018

Hi guys,

I did a poll on my Instagram stories today to find out how many of you buy your make up online. I had a good idea that the majority still bought it in shops, and I was right. There is something nice about going in and trying products – and trust me, I do that too. But when you’re running out of your favourite foundation that you wear every day – it would be handy to have it ordered and on the way wouldn’t it? Especially if you can get a discount and free shipping 😉

I’ve been working on this post over the past few days, gathering as much info as possible to make buying beauty products online that little bit easier.

I’ve narrowed it down to the top five beauty websites online at the moment (in my opinion and with the help of my followers). I’ve named some of the brands they have, how much shipping costs, how long it takes and some of my top picks from the websites.

Hopefully you find it helpful,

The Most Popular Online Beauty Shop with My Followers

Includes makeup, skincare, electricals, hair care, nails and makeup brushes. Has cult brands but often doesn’t have the latest products from the cult brands ranges. For example, Anastasia BH’s new highlighter. This was by far the most popular website among my followers. Lots of you recommended this one and gave great reviews (mainly due to the great shipping options & wide range of brands). Continue Reading…

Fresh Faced for the New Year

January 15, 2018

Hi guys,

I’m starting the new year off with a fresh face and trying out some new beauty products which I’ve heard so much about. I’ve seen lots of my favourite beauty bloggers raving about the Glossier products, they have the perfect skincare and make-up options for that natural, glowy look that I love to create. However when I visited the website I realised that they don’t yet deliver to Ireland 🙁

Thankfully AddressPal have just launched a service where you can get all of your favourite US & UK shops (that don’t deliver to Ireland) delivered to your door or closest Post Office for a small fee. This means whether the company ships here or not, you can order from them! And also you avoid those nasty custom fees! Signing up is simple:
