There’s something about seasonal makeup that I love, and in particular summer makeup (although given we are in Ireland I use the term summer lightly..!). I guess it’s sort of like updating your wardrobe and marks the end of one chapter of the year and the beginning of a new one. Summer makeup for me is always all about fresh dewy skin, soft pinks and peaches and clean defined brows and lashes.
Now that spring seems to be FINALLY upon us; I feel like it's a good time to talk new skincare. I never generally write about a brand as a whole when it comes to skincare - I like to pick out bits and pieces from lots of brands. But I feel like The Ordinary deserves it!
Technically I do believe we’ve reached spring, meh. In reality, it's still freezing and I’m still a secret Nana on various fronts. I carry hot water bottles around in my handbag and my spare time is generally spent under a warm blanket.
It's been quite a while since I have been really excited about beauty products but after a recent clear out I fancied picking up a few new bits. A new foundation was top of my list and somehow buying one opened the floodgates! A new fragrance & beautiful pressed powder found their way into my hands within 15 minutes.
Christmas is well and truly on the way and in a spirit of not leaving Christmas shopping to the very last minute (as I usually tend to do) I have put together our first Christmas gift guide of 2016. This one is for all those beauty lovers in your life!
I think we can all agree that when it comes to lipsticks the people at MAC are absolute rock stars! Between the gazillion shades and formulations, there is something there for everyone. Honestly, I didn't think that there could be anything in the world of MAC lipsticks that would wow me more than what's already on offer, but the new collection... WOW!
