Just Snapchatting

So I have setup a Snapchat account. My username is maryroche2. If you're on it add me,now I cannot promise it will be all exciting but you know that's life!!

It does take time to get used to and the feeling of talking to yourself, is all very random. What I have learned, do not take yourself  too seriously, be natural and be you and anything that is forced or fake will comes across. I will admit it does take a few goes to get the whole talking into the phone right. Then there is the thought of "do I really sound like that".

I tried out Snapchat a few months ago but I did not take to it. At the time I was focusing on setting up my blog and instagram account. So now I think I can handle it better. The only worry with Snapchat as with all social media platforms, is the addiction. So trying to switch off  can become hard. On a positive note, it is another avenue for promotion, networking, it is instant and is great for general messing.

Some of my favourite snapchat users so far are:

@waxpertsellen: She is the co-founder of  waxing brand Waxperts She is just fab. I am loving her snaps. She is so down to earth and comes across as a strong and focused business women.She always looks flawless and her style is also impeccable. Such a positive female influence.


@jamespatrice: Is a blogger and he I fashion editor for MFI Magazine. He just makes me laugh,it's that simple.He also has the most amazing brows (#browenvy). He has made his mother "Fron" famous with his sneaky snaps of her. He just cracks me up and I love that he does not take himself too seriously.

@anouskapb: Her snaps are very elegant (if that's a thing) she is also a blogger  and keen traveler. She is an amazing photographer. She is just so natural and effortless, her style is also beautiful.

I admire her honesty, the real connection she develops with people on her snapchat, she is open ,positive and is a powerhouse when it comes to business. Always inspiring and looking ahead to develop her brand.Makes following my own  dream and having the ambition to achieve it seem  more real.

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder.

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.
