2014 The Year Of….

Untitled

The Selfie…..just kidding. Though trust me, you wouldn’t want to see a close up of my face right now, I’ve been sick all over Christmas. It’s been a quiet one in this house, myself and the small boy have spent our days in front of the fire watching Harry Potter movies. His father has been dodging the germs by carrying on with the usual Christmas tradition of going out and getting hammered. Chance would be a fine thing. Anyway, I digress.

For me anyway, beautywise, 2014 has been mostly about SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Or the year I gave all my money to SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Continue reading

Haulin in SpaceNK, Boots & Brown Thomas

So I was away for the weekend in Dublin & I went a small bit mad shopping with Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits. I’d planned on getting some clothes & boots & some beauty bits. But none of the clothes/shoes I wanted were in stock so I blew the entire budget on beautification. Plus some jewellery from Parfois thrown in for good measure.

30 Days of Beauty…..Day 5

Day Makeup Look

30 Days of Beauty……Day 2

Daily Make Up Products

Currently my daily face is as follows:

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (thanks to Orla for the tube she sent me, it’s been a god send in the heat). Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, my beloved Nars Sheer Glow did not stand up to the heat very well, the Armani has better sticking power. Nars loose powder in Snow, Nars Deep Throat (get your mind out of the gutter) blusher. Urban Decay primer potion for eyes, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Le Volume De Chanel mascara, Nars Gloss Pencil in New Lover and of course my Real Techniques brushes.

Nars The Immaculate Complexion Loose Powder

4697bcc6-0fa9-4b6f-b7e6-ebc76fefc65cI ordered this online at narscosmetics.eu as there is no Nars counter within a couple of hours drive from me.  I chose Snow, which is the palest shade available out of 6 shades.  Snow is described as being “For porcelain-like effects, or the fairest skin”.   Continue reading
