Before I start I think everybody knows who Blathnaid Murphy is… and if you don’t WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!!! I love this girl so much she is such an amazing and talented girl for 20 years old! She is by far my favourite Irish makeup artist. When I want inspiration for a makeup look Blathnaid is the first I go to. When I heard she was coming to Waterford for a Masterclass I needed to be there.. I was willing to camp outside for tickets, I wanted them so much.
This months favourite blogger/youtuber is British girl Sarah Ashcroft aka That Pommie Girl who is a gorgeous fashion blogger. I have been following Sarah for about 2 years now and l am obsessing over everything from her clothes, makeup, hair and her shoe collection!
Her outfits are perfectly put together, co-ordinated well but with an edgy twist. She is a self-confessed shopaholic and loves blogging because it’s the perfect opportunity to “show off my clothes that hardly ever see the light of day“. This girl can never do wrong shes fabulous! She is my blogging goal can I just be her already!
I bought the new book by Sinead Cady known as The Makeup Chair! Irish youtube beauty vlogger.
This is without a doubt one of the best makeup books I have read! Weather you are new to the makeup world or just want to brush up on your skills this is a great book full of makeup tips and tricks.It is very well broken down to an understandable format and at a very affordable price for €14.95. This will make an amazing christmas pressie for anyone who wants to learn about makeup. This book covers everything from concealing & correct, face & eye shapes , eyebrow shaping & filling etc.
The book is available to buy on the Blank Canvas site!
Sinead Cadys Blog: The makeup chair
This is my first Halloween look for 2015! I done this gangster clown inspired by the one and only Chrisspy!
If you dont know who she is, look her up on youtube, RIGHT NOW!!! She is one of my favourite MUAs out there. I fell in love with this look when I first seen it! Products used are items you would already have in your makeup bag- So give it a go 🙂
This months favourite blogger is another Irish beauty blogger,Youtuber and MUA to add to the list! and its none other than Grace Mongey, Known as Faces By Grace.
I have been following Grace for over a year now but I just love her. If you have her on snapchat (facesbygrace23) she will keep you entertained for the day with her snapchats of food and her cat Sasha. She posts daily about her weight loss journey, her gym workouts, little tips and tricks for makeup application,skincare. Not only does she do these things but she is very open with how she struggled with anxiety and depression, I admire her for that! I met Grace at So Sue Mes waterford workshop (going mad I never got a picture!!) but she looks amazing and just genuienly a lovely, down to earth person. She works for bare Minerals and also does freelance.
Check her out, Graces social media details:
I came across this on Nicole Guerrieros snapchat and fell in love! Vice 4 has a similar setup as past Vice palettes- 20 colorful shadows, a beautiful, sleek case, and a HUGE Mirror making this ideal for traveling. This particular Vice palette has the coolest design in my opinion! There are only a few warm shades in this one, and there is a lot of shimmer. Once again it has 20 eyeshadows but these are brand new, limited edition shades!! My favourites have to be Bitter, Crowbar, Delete, Deadbeat and Flame!
This palette should be out September or October. My suggestion is if you are even the slightest bit interested, be ready to pick it up quick because Vice palettes always go fast!! And by the looks of it when this hits the shelves it wont be there for long..
On a scale of 1 to 10, how exited are you about the Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette?! I cant handle the amazingness and I need this like right this very second..
I thought I would talk about my favorite Youtubers/Bloggers but I have a few and I know this blog post would be way too long! So what I have decided to do is have one blog post a month featuring a favorite youtuber/blogger that I like, Why I like them, my favorite videos etc. YouTubers and bloggers are great to watch, they give ideas for posts and most of all, there’s nearly always someone with a post on whatever it is you want to find out about! There are loads of bloggers out there and it’s fun to be one too! (Although, I must admit, I’m not quite up to their standard).
I will start this with a well known Irish girl: SoSueMe – Suzanne Jackson
So Sue Me Blog, Where do I start.. I have been following this girl for a good while now and watching her get bigger and bigger is great! Suzanne is one of the most successful blogs I follow.I love this girl style and makeup look, shes always amazing! I got to meet Suzanne as I went to one of her workshops this year and she is the most friendly and down to earth person. Suzanne has launched two books, a nail varnish range and has something else on the way (Oh, the excitement!) Suzanne trained as a beautician, She posts numerous videos on YouTube in relation to makeup application, clothing and cosmetic hauls, hair and just things about her lifestyle.
Keep an eye out each month for my favorites! Let me know who your favorites are because I love finding new youtubers and bloggers to get interested in!
