On Monday I attended the Professional Beauty trade show at the RDS in Dublin. I picked up a few pieces so thought I would share them with you...


On Monday 26th Sep, I travelled up to Dublin to attend the Painted By Fame masterclass by Miss Fame (@missfamenyc). If you don't know who that is - you need to! Miss Fame/Kurtis is a drag queen and makeup artist, who starred on Season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race, is well known on social media, and creates makeup tutorials on YouTube. I attended the Dublin masterclass and wanted to share my experience...

Omg can you even? I saw @xwiesx using an amazing glitter on Instagram, so clicked through to the tag of the company and found Glitter Glam cosmetics. Instantly fell in love with their colour range so clicked through to their website, where I instantly fell in love with their prices!

I recently bought a few glitters from Glitter Glam (blogpost coming on Sunday!) and wanted to try this beautiful lilac shade first. I based everything else around this and created this mauve-toned look. I tend to reach for warm shades so it's nice to switch it up and go back to the cool tones that I used to love! Lilac and mauve are a great way to wear purple if you don't want something too out there. Especially for those of you with green eyes!! Have a look at the tutorial, product list and unedited pictures below:

I'm so excited to be reviewing these brushes from the Irish brand Nima Brush, created by makeup artist Niamh Martin! I can never have too many brushes. I couldn't do what I do without my tools! And I am all for supporting fellow Irish makeup artists and Irish brands.

I really do love dramatic looks so it gives me so much pleasure to be able to do these kinds of tutorials. I was so happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it too! If you enjoy cut creases you can also check out my Double Cut Crease with Glitter tutorial.
