From Pinterest To Your Wardrobe


I am absolutely loving Pinterest. I will totally admit that I have only recently discovered it's brilliance and created an account a few months ago. It's safe to say that I love it, (why did it take me so long?)It is the perfect platform for gathering and sharing images. My favorite pin searches are for fashion and wedding inspiration. 

For this post I have selected three fab looks and recreated a version of them. You can purchase online or from the highstreet. The looks are bang on trend for AW. Featuring ponchos, fringing, pleather, over the knee boots and duster coats. You can take all of the pieces together or just one or two depending on your own personal style and taste. 

These looks can be casual or dressy. Using some tweaks, the more casual can take you through to the night. My top tips - Look :1 Switch the ankle boots for heels and the poncho for a blazer. Look 2: As shown in the image with the grey dress. Change the boots for strappy heels (not crazy on the ones in the photo) just a plain pair would be fab. Switch the bag for a clutch  Look 3: change the casual t-shirt to a dressy top like the one featured. For a casual look wear boots instead of heels.

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.
