I dont usually tend to where colours on my eyes. I go for the brown shades or a grey smoky eye sometimes when I'm going out. But today while my daughter was napping I decided against doing the sensible thing which would be to clean my house and instead started playing with makeup! As you do.

I started playing with green colours and even went for some lashes to finish the look off which is another never for me. I recently bought the DUO eyelash glue in the dark shade and was curious to see if there was much of a difference and I loved it.

Portlaoise Minibreak

Last week my other half and I took our daughters down the country to Portlaoise for a few nights for a much needed mini break. Excited at the prospect of having some new scenery to take outfit posts I packed wayyy too much clothes. But it turns out trying to keep an eye on two very active little girls in a town you don't know leaves very little time for taking pictures of clothes. The girls had an amazing time we on the other hand probably could of done with another break afterwards ha.

I was so happy to finally get using my Cath Kitson luggage Marc got me for Christmas.. its only been 7 months after all :)

The devastation in the car on the drive down when I realised I packed all my makeup and no brushes!! I had to go back to the fingertip and cotton bud methods.

Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer

As I mentioned on my Facebook page I'm loving the Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer at the minute. I've had this for a while as I first heard about it when I attended Tara Makeups master class. I've used it on clients but only recently tried it on myself. It's actually a concealer but can be mixed with a primer and used as a foundation. You only need to smallest amount to cover your entire face so at €45 the pot will last you a really long time. It has a buildable full coverage and suits all skin types. I used shade SX10 which is quite dark and would need to be worn with tan. It is available in Mise Dundalk.
