DIY Glam Makeup Vanity

I have been on the hunt for a makeup vanity for months now! I wanted something a little extra and totally glam for my beauty room as this is the one room in my house where I can just go all out and there is no such thing as too much. 

Snapshot Review: Pennys Lip Kit

Lip kits are huge right now and I think we all know who we have to thank for that. In typical Pennys/Primark form they are always on it comes to keeping up with the latest trends and quickly work to produce their own (much cheaper) version of the ‘it product’ of the moment.  

Bellamianta Luxury Tan: First Impressions

Sleek Highlighting Palettes, The Best The Drugstore Has To Offer?

What did we do before the gloriousness that is highlighter entered our lives? Our faces must have looked so dull compared the beacons of light they are now which can be seen from galaxies away. I jest, but in all seriousness highlighters are huge business considering they have only just recently become the phenomenon they are today….

All About That Flormar Base

Flormar is a makeup brand that is relatively new to me and one that I know very little about. It was established in Milan, Italy and only in recent years has it been introduced to us makeup loving Irish ladies. Up until recently I had never tired anything from the Flormar range but had heard good…
