Big Beautiful Eyes!..x..


Happy Monday Everyone! 🙂

I dunno about all of you, but here in Dublin, Ireland, we had a beautiful sunny day – which is a rarity in all fairness. 😉 What better than to start the week talkin about one of my favorite everyday eyeshadow palettes, Benefits Big Beautiful Eyes. Now this palette has been around for some time and I’ve been a fan of it for a lonnnnggg time. It consists of three brown shades, which when you have blue eyes like myself you tend to wear a lot of :), there is also a concealer, which is great for any shadows in the under eye area, and there are two handy sized little brushes. The pack itself is quite compact so it easily fits into the smallest of makeup bags – perfect for on the go, there’s even a mirror! 😉 The little eyeliner brush is my favorite little brush ever also, it’s so teeny tiny but does an amazing job at blending and perfecting eyeliner and eyeshadow. There’s even a little booklet included inside the pack, which illustrates a step by step guide to creating the perfect contoured eyes – really what more could a girl need? 😉 This entire set is available in most pharmacies and department stores for around €35.

My Beauty Bag ESSENTIALS!!..x..


So as all us ladies know, we are all constantly trying and testing new beauty products. I find myself constantly checking out new brands, however I also find that I tend to suffer from allergies from various items. So if you’ve ever wanted a few essential pieces here’s my top four beauty bag essentials – and I’m talking stuff you will have thrown in your handbag for those emergency touch ups on tired eyes or blemishes.

 

1.)   Mac Studio Fix Concealer.

I use NC30, and I find this product is without a doubt the best concealer I have ever used. I have been a Mac Junkie for years now but without a doubt this is a staple, which I will be a fan of for many years to come. The concealer is great for covering up dark under eye circles, as well as any unwanted spots or red dots. If you haven’t done so already, you simply must try this product – especially anyone out there with any skin allergies, like myself!

 

 

2.)   Mac Studio Fix Powder.

Yeah I know, another Mac product! But honestly this is a fantastic powder! I use NC25 and it’s great for wearing over your foundation, or for quick touchups on the go! 🙂 If you’ve oily skin, it’s fantastic for taking away that little bit of sheen too!

 

 

3.)   Clarins Instant Definition Mascara.

Ok so I have extremely long lashes but they are seriously blonde so I have been searching high and low for that perfect mascara for years on end! So after a lot of searching, I think I have found my newest love!

 

4.)   Clarins Beauty Flash Balm.

This is such an amazing product! I have really dry skin so I am always weary about what moisturizers to use, and I find that this balm from Clarins works a treat. I usually apply a layer of it at night before bed and leave it to soak in over night, but you can also use it as a primer under your makeup. If you try it even once you’ll feel it working its powers on your skin! 🙂

That’s it for now ladies! What are all of your favourite go to products? 🙂 xoxo

Urban Decay Naked Skin


Fantastic article on Urban Decay’s Naked Skin foundation, I’m definitely going to be trying this out! Thanks so much Evething is Pretty with a Splash of Color!! 🙂 x

Evething is Pretty with a Splash of Color

Urban Decay’s Naked line has proven to be a big hit. Starting with the Naked palette then with the Naked 2, Urban Decay has come up with an addition to the line but this time, it’s not an eyeshadow palette. Meet Naked Skin, Urban Decay’s latest foundation which claims to provide an airbrush finish-like coverage that is medium to buildable. Read: flawless.

I’m very interested with this new foundation primarily because of the success of the Naked line. Finding the perfect shade for your skin should be pretty easy as you can choose from all 18 shades. Can’t go to a shop to get the perfect match? Urban Decay’s website allows you to find the equivalent shade based on your current foundation so no need to worry you’d get the wrong color for your skin when ordering online.

This foundation is said to feel light, almost like you’re not wearing…
