Invisible lip liner

Lipstick lovers the world round know that lip liners are your best friend. When the 90’s landed back in fashion so too did lip liner. It does exactly what it says on the tin, well pencil actually. It lines your lips giving more definition and keeps the colour from bleeding. Its not always easy to match a liner to your lipstick shade. Enter the invisible lip liner.All the benefits of a normal liner but the beauty of this pencil is it works with any colour lipstick. Plus because its transparent you dont have to worry about staying inside the lines. This is a yay from me as im not the best at lines myself. It works with lipstick or lipgloss.…

Wet N Wild lips

Bordly browsing the aisles of Dunnes Stores brushing shoulders with the grannies and dodging trolleys. I took solis in the beauty aisle and spotted this lippie from https://www.facebook.com/wetnwildcosmetics.They have a good selection of lipsticks in Vamp shades. I picked up this one in ‘Dark Wine’. I’ve been after a sold out MAC Cosmetics lippie in ‘hearts a flame’ i thought this was close enough. After swatching it but it seems more like a dupe for ‘Viva glam 4’ from MAC. i think its the lustre finish and creamy texture. The pigment is great it went on fab. For €1.99 i grabbed it as i think i’ve lost my Viva Glam (sad face). Im going to look into this brand more, although the name leaves a…

Balmi Lip Balm

I’ve never really been one for lip-balms or gloss persay. Purely because i don’t really like the texture of most on my lips. I always have great intentions when i buy one but i end up wiping it off. Until now. I am obsessed with these Balmis. They smell amazing and feel so good on your lips, Not greasy or sticky. I first got the light pink strawberry and then the green mint flavour. I picked mine up in Penneys for €3.99. I have found these to be really moisturising and easy to use. The smell , taste and texture are all mild and pleasent. Although the ones i have are cube shaped Boots Ireland also stock round ones similar to the infamous eos lip-balm.…

Animal Feet

its back….did it ever leave? This is one for your inner Beth Lynch! Love it or loath it leopard print has some serious staying power. There is currently a lot of animal print footwear on the high street and its being styled up pretty cool. Leopard print can be tacky by nature but if worn right can be very chic. This print can be rocked casual with Boyfriend jeans and a camo jacket or check shirt. For a chic dressy-cas look team some leopard heels with ripped jeans and a printed tee. Dress this up with a statement necklace and fitted jacket. With the right colour tone animal print can be worn with other prints like stripes, checks and camouflage.…

Throwback Thursday – Unlikely Style Icon Clueless

Thursdays are my chance to throwback through the years at some style icons. more admittedly some unlikely icons also.The 90’s revival has been huge this year. So much time has passed its now vintage! This got me thinking about one of my fav films of all time from the 90s – Clueless.     Every girl has dreamed of having Cher’s epic wardrobe- who could forget the rotating colour ordered rails and computer system for building outfits…..A girl can dream (sigh). This 1995 classic boasts a massive 41 costume changes for the main character Cher Horowitz. Look below for a movie montage of all her outfits in just one minute-A must see! I’m feeling very nostalgic thinking about the scene in which Cher…

Festival Fashion #2

For my second Festival outfit i have gone a little tougher. This look will also be better for colder/wetter times (Shudder).Camo jackets are still going strong and a great look for festivals. I loved the denim revival this summer brought and thought how to do festival denim without going for the usual shorts. This denim dress is pretty but cool against the boots.The boots are a play on the traditional wellies with these high-top Doc Martins Drench Wellington boots. They are both fashion and function which is the name of the game really.The accessories really tie this look together. The blogger classic bowler hat just oozes cool. The fringe backpack keeps your hands free for dancing and ahemmm *coughs* beverages.…
