Finalist - KFW 2015

I am delighted to tell you that I have been nominated for "Makeup Artist Of The Year" in the Kerry Fashion Week Irish Fashion Industry Awards. I am among 3 other amazing finalists and the winner will be chosen on March 6th. I am thrilled that I was chosen by judges Melanie Morris, Bairbre Power, Helen Steele & Aisling Farinella.

A glitzy, black tie ball will be held in the prestigious Europe Hotel for the awards. And I hear that Don O'Neill, Creative Director at THEIA, will be the honorary guest to present the awards. I cannot wait to meet him again!

Plum smokey eyes

I love this smokey, plum look and it looks great with green or brown eyes. Lots of blending required!

Love your brows

For any of you girlies on Instagram (check out mine HERE) you cannot scroll through without seeing the hashtag #AnastasiaBeverlyHills. Today everyone gets their brows shaped professionally and at home we fill them in to create perfect wow brows!

Up until today I have been using the Benefit Browzings palette to groom my brows but there is no going back since I tried the worldwide known product Dip Brow Pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Easy to apply, waterproof and so long lasting. You can achieve that defined yet natural looking brow in minutes! I bought the Medium Brown colour and I love the gel-mousse consistency. I also picked up the duo brush #12 for application. Have a look at the shade below to help you choose.

Ever wondered what Victoria has in her handbag?

"Why don't you smile?"

"Prince William or Harry?"

"If you could have any super power in the world, what would it be?"

Vogue asks Victoria Beckham the 73 Questions at her flagship store on Dover Street. Makes me adore her even more :)
