Urban Decay Naked Heat Makeup Look

I didn’t think I would be as into this palette as I am. I have alot of similar shades in my collection already. They are used, them but not super often. Having them in one handy place, I think makes you reach for things more though.  Playing with makeup is a big part of my life, but I can get a bit lazy. Makeup ruts are real people 🙂

When you’re writing a post about a makeup product and you’re day dreaming about how you are going to apply it the next time, I think that’s a sign it’s a hit!

beauty blogger ireland

There’s a good mixture of shades and finishes within the palette to keep things interesting, for a while at least.

Did you take the plunge and pick it up? Are you a red tone eyeshadow fan? I never thought I would be. I never thought they would suit my colouring. But, I have definitely been proven wrong 🙂

NYX Cosmetics Eye Makeup Look

top irish beauty blogger

I received some NYX goodies in the post a couple of weeks ago. I had some single shadows of the same tones already myself, so I really fancied playing with them all together. This is where the Nyx Cosmetics Eye Makeup Look came about. I popped the camera on and sure didn’t I film it 🙂

beauty blog dublin

I didn’t do a whole face of one brand, because I didn’t think I had enough product to warrant it. But I did have some cheek, mascara and lip products to add into the mix too. So, I added them in to finish off the look.

Nyx Cosmetics Eye Makeup Look

I’ll list all the goodies below, just in case anything takes your fancy:

  • Hot Single Eyeshadow in ‘LOL’.
  • Prismatic Eyeshadow in ‘Sunset Daze’.
  • Hot Single Eyeshadow in ‘Heat’.
  • Prismatic Eyeshadow in ‘Golden Peach’.
  • Sweet Cheek Blush Palette.
  • Voluptuous Lush Lashes Mascara.
  • Highlight & Contour Pro Palette Palette (I have a review of this here).
  • Mauve Lipliner.
  • Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Stockholm’ all over the lips.
  • Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Tokyo’ just in the middle.

Luckily Boots have us covered in the NYX department now. In the bigger stores at least. We can get our hands on nearly the whole range. You can of course buy from them online here too.

This NYX Cosmetics eye makeup look ended up being a little bit more ‘out there’ than I would generally go for. But, I was actually really happy with it how it came out. The single eyeshadows are really lovely and easy to work with.

New Makeup Summer Look

New makeup alert! I’ve had an abundance of new makeup come in over the past few weeks.

I didn’t go in too heavy with base products. I just wanted to even out any redness. Some freckles and blemishes are definitely still peeping through, but sure that’s just life 🙂

Casual Night Out Makeup GET READY WITH ME

I am back with another Get Ready With Me video! This one is a more casual night out makeup look.

 

Casual Night Out MakeupI was heading to a blogger event that evening, so knew I needed to put a bit more makeup on than the average day. It wasn’t a full on lashes and glam scenario though, hence the name ‘casual night out makeup’. 🙂

We were dog sitting so it was really nice to turn the camera on somewhere else and film. Also, the surroundings were much nicer than what I am accustomed too in my little house, that’s for sure 🙂 Louis the schnauzer was also on hand to make a cameo at the end of the video. How cute is he though? He slept right through filming on the couch beside me.

Too Faced Natural Love

I went to the launch of the Too Faced Natural Love Palette and within (no exaggeration) a half an hour of having it in my possession. I turned the camera on and played with it 🙂

too faced natural love palette

I was also lucky enough to be given the three new Prismatic highlighter from Too Faced as well. So they make a cameo in the video too 🙂

beauty vlogger

The Too Faced Natural Love Palette is limited edition.

too faced cosmetics irelandbeauty blog ireland

It’s contains 30 neutral shades which are a combination from Too Faced best sellers, (Natural Eyes, Natural Matte, Natural At Night). And then, some newly formulated shades too. The Too Faced Natural Love Palette is available now from the Debenhams website here and priced at €62. I was going to swatch it in this post but I thought it would be a bit too long and I go into a fair amount of the eyeshadows in the video. I might do a separate swatch heavy post looking at all the shades very soon 🙂

Too Faced Natural Love palette

If you click on the video above, you will see what shades I used and my first initial impressions of the palette. Since it’s a neutral heavy palette, I went with a more neutral makeup look. And as with all of my looks, it is super simple and fuss free.

Then, we have the Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighters.

beauty blogger ireland

According to Too Faced these have ‘a silky smooth texture that allows for buildable pearl radiance.’ They are apparently made using a liquid to powder freeze dry process.

The shades from left to right are You Light Up My Life’, ‘Ray Of Light’ and ‘Blinded By The Light’.

I used ‘Blinded By The Light’ in the video. I think it’s the best colour for my skintone.

All three shades are permanent and are priced at €30. You can get them from the Debenhams website here.

Simple Summer Makeup Using Affordable Products

I wanted to create a simple Summer makeup look and I made it a bit more interesting and used all affordable makeup products!

top irish beauty blogger

This is about as fresh and simple summer makeup like my oilier and dare I say more mature skin will get 😛 Obviously, there is the bb cream and lip balm option too. This is more the ‘put together’ simple makeup look. After I filmed this I went out and had some dinner and felt very much put together.

On a side note, how much difference does filling in my brows make??

irish beauty blog
irish beauty blogger

My simple summer makeup does use alot of products, but sure that’s how I roll and they are all affordable and easy to get a hold of here in Ireland. I used alot of L’Oréal products, Not on purpose, it just what I seemed to gravitate towards at time of application 🙂
