Summery makeup.. ish :)

You'd have to be living inder a rock not to know Ireland is experiencing GORGEOUS weather. So, with that in mind, I needed to change up my makeup routine to agree with the weather.

My nose looks HUGE!!

So, here we have it. This is very easy and doesn't take too long.

Products used:

MAC  Prep + Prime Face Protectant SPF50
MAC Fling brow pencil on brows
Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner on eyes
Clinique High Impact Mascara
MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

Like I said, very quick and easy. You could wear a base if you liked, a BB cream would be lovely, as would a tinted moisturiser :)

Hope everyone's enjoying the weather. Long may it last!! :)

Today, the lovely Lorraine, wrote a post on her MAC lipsticks, so, I had to jump on the band wagon & show you mine! :)



1. Viva Glam Gaga
2. Girl About Town
3. Dubonnet
4. Up The Amp
5. Creme De Nude
6. Quick Sizzle
8. Ruby Woo
9. Cyber
10. Smoked Purple
11.Rare Exotic
12. Chatterbox

It's too hard to pick a favourite! I go through phases all the time. I loooove Quick Sizzle & the newest addition to the family, Girl About Town. ( I like to think I'm a barbie! :))

I have serious love for MAC lipsticks, if you couldn't tell. :)

What's in your stash? What's your favourite?

On the hunt again!

When the new moisturizer from Vichy came out, I thought I'd hit the jackpot. A moisturizer for oily skin thats dehydrated?? Eh Win!!

Eh, no. I was wrong. When we started our love affair, this stuff worked wonders, but now, things have changed, I feel like I've been cheated on. The moisturizer has starterd to lie on top of the skin, not absorbing, and then it started to ball. Like, when you use a rubber to erase out pencil, that kind of stuff that's left behind. I've read on several other blogs that this has happened too.

It's so disappointing. I'm over it, I'll find a new love in my life! Anyone have any recommendations??

My clothes are getting tighter!! :(

Well lads, this is a step away from the beauty aspect of my blog, recently I've been eating so much shite! I can't seem to stop. I've decided to hop back on the healthy eating band wagon. I stumbled across this blog, which has all the weight watcher points for nearly everything!

Short post now. But, can anyone shed some light on their weight loss journey? :)

I need inspiration!!
