Jazzin' at The Dress Bar & Verso


New Makeup

I visited the new Inglot store in my city this week. How have I not come across this makeup range before? Sarah Cummins, a makeup artist whose work I admire was on hand there to help me overhaul my makeup for Winter. She chose burgundy hues for my eyes which can be mixed with the charcoal shade for nighttime below along with a more natural shade base foundation to match my paler Winter visage.
My favourite product is their €12 pallet that I was able to magnetically pop all my eye shadows at only €6 each, concealer, blush and highlighter and contouring powder into. Buy another pallet and it snaps onto the end like a dream stacking block of all your favourite makeup essentials. No more broken eye shadows at the end of my handbag.
There is a special offer at the moment on foundation and powder so I availed of this cream foundation and translucent powder.
As a little treat, Sarah offered me a sample of this bronze glitter eyeshadow to add some sparkle to my birthday makeup. In all, I love my new purchases, they didn't break the bank, the eyeshadows blend easier than my MAC ones and my makeup case is more organised now thanks to the clever pallet. Below is how my makeup turned out when I went out for the Guinness Jazz Festival to celebrate my birthday xo


Birds of a Feather

I was blown away by all the requests I received when pregnant to do editorials & shoots and this special 'Birds of a Feather' shoot was the last I did before Erin arrived into our lives. I love working with the Le Chat Noir Vintage Events crew. Jill & Leona did such an amazing job putting this whole story together and I really enjoyed my day on set with the other amazing bloggers and business women. Thanks for having me! Looking back, I am so glad I participated as these images are such a lovely memory for Erin's Baby Book xo

Cork Fashion Week Opening Show

Cork Fashion Week has started! The Boutique show last night was amazing. Hosted by Brendan Courtney, 19 stores showcased collections from vintage to custom made and some of Europe's top brands. I wore a red high waisted skirt and matching pumps from Vanilla Boutique in Fermoy and a black lace top from Topshop. My hair was done by Peter Mark & makeup by Lancome. My feet are killing me but I am off to host the Samsung Alpha Pairs event today in Mahon Point. Can't wait! More Fashion Week news later. Head over to my Facebook page to see my first video blog from last night xo
