A warm toned Smokey Eye


I just can’t stay away from neutral eyes. This time I used the Too Face Semi Sweet Chocolate Palette which finally landed in Ireland and I don’t think I have ever been more excited about getting this palette.

On my eyes I used Peanut Butter and Truffle in the outer third of my eye. I actually lined my eyes with Catrice Black Kohl pencil which is something I never normally do and Im not sure if I will do it again. I just can’t deal with the smudging! and for mascara no surprise that it is Benefits roller lash.

What to see more neutral smokey eyes, take a look at theses; one, two and and a surprise post from here.

The Haircare Edit | Hair braids


I have been obsessing over hair braid’s for quite a while! I think they are the perfect hair style that looks really complicated to do, looks really sophisticated. I just love them if you haven’t guessed. The above pictures are a few of my favourite braid styles. I found them on weheartit.

After being inspired by a few braids, I took to youtube like I always do when I need help. There are so many hair braid tutorials, i am planning on doing my own but I am holding out until my new camera arrives!

But Here is a step by step guide for milk-maid braids.

1. Give yourself a centre part, the whole way down your head.
2. Braid your hair from under your ears to the end on each side.
3. Tie the braids.
4. Take one braid and bring it up across the top of your head, and clip it in place with a bobby pin/curby grip.
5. Do the same at the other side and bake sure you hide the ends of the previous braids.
6. Tuck the end of the second braid under the first with a bobby pin.
7. Viola your hair style is complete.

The Review| Vaseline Spray and Go


This moisturiser is going to change your life. A spray moisturiser that disperses just enough product to cover your body with an even layer of moisturising goodness.

Can you guess that I love this product! The reason why I love this moisturiser is that it is so easy and quick to use. Moisturising is not something I particularly enjoy doing but I do try to do it everyday no matter what and this really helps to speed up the process.

Apart from the fact it makes moisturising so quick and easy.It moisturising properties are also really really good. I usually pop m moisturiser on at night and the next day I still feel moisturised, not greasy which is always a good sign.

Have you tried the Spray and Go moisturiser. You can find it online here and in moist drugstores, boots, and Supermarkets.

The Make Up Edit| Everyday make up


My everyday make up routine is pretty simple. I am in college 9-5, yes it kills me so I like to keep my make up simple and quick because who doesn’t love an extra 10 minutes sleep.

For my base I alternate between Dior BB cream ,MAC Prep and Prime BB cream and Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser. As you can see I am a lover of tinted moisturisers and BB creams. Thanks to the lovely Anna from Viviannadoesmakeup for all her recoomendations which then lead to purchases and my bank crying! After applying my TM or BB cream of choice I always use my Laura Mercier Pressed Mineral Powder to set it and add a bit of coverage. To define my chubby cheeks I use MAC Harmony as its easy to blend out and that is pretty much all I do for my base.

Onto Eyes, I usually sweep over MAC Cork which is a gorgeous yellow toned brown which just adds a little bit of definition and then I use my Shu Uemura Eye lash curlers and lots of Maybelline the Colossal Waterproof Mascara. For my eyebrows I use MAC Wedge to define them and that is pretty much all I do for my everyday make up. I always throw on a nude or a pink lipstick before I go out the door.

What do you use everyday in your Make up routine?
