Pieta House Fundraiser

Darkness Into Light in aid of Pieta House, is taking place on the 8th May 2021. Last year, using my makeup skills, I raised €2400.00. I am thrilled to announce that this year I will be doing so again!
I will showcase an in-depth makeup tutorial of 2021 makeup techniques to help "lift" and give the skin a "glow". I'll teach you the correct way to use your brushes plus tell you all about my favourite products to use for every type of skin.
Along with my tutorial, you can avail of a fantastic hair tutorial from Audrey of Upstyle Junkie. Audrey will showcase two tutorials, an easy upstyle and an easy half up, half down style .Plus, she will talk you through some tips to get us through the end of this lockdown. Sherna Malone, skincare guru, will chat about her favourite skincare products and what we should be doing to get our skin Summer ready.
All you do is donate €15 and the full amount goes to Pieta House. All three tutorials will be pre recorded and on a group together for you to access easily.
So, if you would love to see these tutorials and support Pieta House at the same time:
2. DM ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS (this is a very important step, as I need this to add you to the group).
3. You will have full access to this group on Friday 7th May. You can view all three videos for as long as you want.
Let's make as much as we can for this amazing charity.
Thank you,

AYU Fresh Skin Foundation

I am thrilled to introduce the new, must-have foundation on the market,
Fresh Skin Foundation. You are going to LOVE it - super lightweight on the skin, so hydrating, radiant and perfect for a day time makeup. I have been wearing this with the last few weeks and I am totally converted. As you know, I love my coverage and this is unbelievable. Covering the redness on my cheeks and any discolouration around my eyes. It has the best lasting power and is suitable for normal to dry skins.
This tutorial covers all my favourite AYU products, an Irish brand you really will have to try and wont be disappointed. Congrats again Suzie, another amazing product to add to your list and I am delighted to be involved in the launch of these fantastic products.

Hyaluronic Acid

One of my favourite skincare products - HYALURONIC ACID

What is it?
Hyaluronic acid sounds like a severe product but it actually holds the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin. It is naturally produced in our own skin to maintain moisture levels. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to draw and hold water in our skin cells. However, this declines as we age.

The benefits
Keeps skin hydrated, plump and healthy.
Reduces the appearance of wrinkles making it a very important anti aging product.
Non irratating which can be used on all skin types including sensitive.

Hyaluronic acid is one of my go-to products that I use daily. It is best applied on cleansed, damp skin. Use moisturiser or night cream after.

My favourite serums are:
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%
Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum.
