I actually really enjoyed making this video. I haven’t done a makeup ‘tutorial’ type one in a while. They take a lot of work and to be honest not many people watch them. I always have to tell myself though, I make videos more because I enjoy creating them. If people watch them, great, if not, I’ve hopefully learned something from the experience. This is very much a mauve eye makeup look. Actually the lips are mauve too. So, it’s just a mauve look ๐Ÿ™‚

Mauve Eye Makeup LookI used the very talked about Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions palette to create my mauve eye. I’ve utilised this palette a hell of a lot since I picked it up! I have a blogpost on it here and I do give you a quick review in the video, so I won’t go in to major details quality wise in this post.

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette

I think it’s fair to say if you’re not a mauve, or pink toned shadow fan, stay well clear. For me, these shades ( I think), work well, so I’ve been enjoying experimenting with it. The last few times I’ve used it, I’ve shared pics on Instagram, and I’ve always gottenย  such lovely feedback. So, this video is for your lovely selves who ended up picking it up, or might have it in a drawer needing an outing ๐Ÿ™‚

Mauve Eye Makeup Look Huda BeautyI went full on and finished the mauve eye look off with a mauve lip too. I have so many mauve lippies in slightly different shades and finishes, it’s definitely my go to colour. Everything else is pretty simple and if you want to know any of the other products I used, head over to my latest Get Ready With Me YouTube video here.

Let me know what you think and let me know if you picked up the Mauve Obsessions Palette, I know it’s kind of a marmite one ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m feeling very makeup video-y this week it seems ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m back with a more wearable everyday look. This is what I do when I am in a bit of a hurry but still want to look put together and presentable.

I would more or less do a variation of this makeup look most days I wear it. I would just switch up the eye or lip colour. But, the principle and the application would be the same. Unless, I am trialing specific products or I’m feeling really fancy…or lazy.

It’s really simple and honestly takes no major skills at all. I adore makeup, but I’m no professional. I even added in me (kinda, sorta), doing my hair too ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a click here to watch the video in full, or you can watch it above.

Let me know what kind of YouTube videos you like to watch. Do you prefer watching to reading? I would love to know. I’m a big beauty YouTube fan, so I love making videos even though I’m not very good at it. Every time I edit it myself, I say, OK Gemma, next time enunciate more and stop saying ’em’. It never happens ๐Ÿ™‚

Yep, we can all panic. It’s September favourites time. How did that even happen?

ย top irish beauty bloggerI am in disbelief that it’s October! The C word is just creeping up on us…..fast!

ย My September favourites are much like any other month. They are a mixed bag of things that I feel I have been reaching for alot over the past four weeks. This month definitely had a bit of a skincare theme. It’s probably the change in the seasons that has me more conscious, unconsciously ๐Ÿ™‚

September Favourites 2017

Of course there is some makeup in there too, that can’t not happen. Makeup stages are my thing. I will wear something religiously for weeks and then completely forget about it. Yes, I am fickle. It doesn’t mean I don’t still love something. It just means my obsession changes focus because I have a short attention span ๐Ÿ™‚

September Favourites 2017

My September favourites include:
  • The Bioderma Micellar Water limited edition pump bottle โ‚ฌ16 from Cloud10beauty here.
  • A couple of products from Shiseido’s new Waso range . I can only find the full range online from Harvey Nichols here. It is a more affordable range from the brand. You can see the synopsis and ingredients of all the products on the Shiseido website here.
  • Pure Potions Skin Salvation Bath And Body Oil. This range is available in store from Holland and Barrett. I found the oil directly on the brands website here too.
  • Mac Syrup Lipstick. I did a post on this a little while ago here.
  • Stila Magnificent Metal in Rose Gold Retro. I used this in my go to rose gold makeup look here.
  • The Elf Shimmer Highlighting Powder. You can see this swatched here.
  • And the finally my gold mini Casio watch. John bought me this years ago from Asos. They don’t have it anymore. I found it for the cheapest price in Ireland here from Argos if you want to check it out.
