So I did a little browsing online and came across an amazing make up website called Elf . I couldn’t believe me eyes. The price of these products were unbelievable. The items above only cost me €36!
So here are some of the products I’ve tried out already and what I recommend buying!
1. Elf Mineral Infused Face Primer
I really liked this primer, it feels great on the skin. It’s only downfall is the fact that it isn’t as long lasting as other high ending Primers but it’s a great to use as a base to work on! €8.36
2. Elf Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter
I liked this concealer because it makes under your eyes look bright and fresh. It works well and has great coverage. I really liked it especially when applying makeup in the morning it makes you look more awake! €4.75
3.Elf Matte Lip Color in Rich Red
Really pigmented and a great color! You can’t go wrong with how much it costs! €4.75 serious steal!
4. Elf Complete Coverage Concealer
I like to use it to contour sometimes and it has good coverage! Not the best but not the worst by far! €4.75
5. Elf Stippling Brush
Not the best stippling brush but it does the job. I wouldn’t use it for a HD look or for a night out but it’s ok for day time looks! €4.75
Looking for debs or ball inspiration, look no further. Some amazing looks from the BRIT Award 2014 below….

5. Favourite look of the night was definitely Queen Bey. Rocking a form fitting emerald green dress she looked amazing .
This Spring’s must haves you won’t want to miss!
1.Hair Chalk – The Body Shop
Ever been afraid to take the leap and throw a crazy colour in you hair? Well fear not, The Body Shop have come up with hair chalk’s including the colour’s pink and blue. No commitment, no regret. When you’re sick of it, wash it out. It’s a great way to experiment without breaking the bank or regretting it. Hair Chalk is only € 11.95 so keep an eye out girls!
2. Out with Red in with Bright Orange
The lips are on fire, the name says it all. Catrice have brought this low cost lipstick out for Spring that you can pick it up online or in Penney’s! It’s great because it’s pigmented and creamy! Put that red lipstick down and try something new, you never know you might like it.
3. Glowy Skin – Beat it Matte
In winter we see a lot of matt foundations, lipsticks and blushes. However this Spring the focus is on making your skin seem brighter. I love this trend because you’re make up isn’t as heavy. With the weather getting brighter it’s nice to see your makeup following suit. I use products like W7’s Shimmer Compact and Benefit’s High beam to achieve a highlighted look! You can buy High beam from Debenhams in store or online for
I know I’m late on the bandwagon but here are a few of my January favourites!
- Essence Studio Nails Hardening Nail Base
I picked this nail hardener up on a whim because my nails were feeling weak after fake nails! I put it on before putting nail varnish on and after a few weeks I felt them getting stronger and not breaking as much. It’s also great an protecting your nail from being stained from the nail varnish itself! Cheap and cheerful I got this in Penney’s for about 3 euro!
2. Forever Aloe Lips
This is great for people like myself who suffer with chapped lips. I don’t leave the house without it and I put it on before lipstick! Made with aloe vera it’s nice to know that you’re putting something natural on your lips! Handy for carrying arounds it’s 4 euro!
3.Soap & Glory’s Hand Food
I’m lucky I got this as a present from a friend for Christmas! It’s actually great not only does it smell amazing but I like it because it protects my hands from the harsh weather!
4.Cobalt Clutch from Penney’s
I spotted this the other day while browsing with a friend (I say browsing because I wasn’t meant to be shopping) . I thought it was a great staple piece because cobalt is a big colour for spring. I think it’ll be a great bag for going out because it’s the right size for essentials. I couldn’t just leave it in the shop it was only 7 euro. Bargain!
Thanks for Reading! Until next time xo
