The Glitter Studio Wedding Event

On Sunday I went to the CHQ to attend the Glitter Studio Event.This was organised by One Fab Day they are an Irish online wedding magazine and a one stop site for brides and grooms.This was not like the normal wedding fairs that you attend. I would describe it as a boutique wedding fair and YES it was as described (Pinterest brought to life). All the supplier stands were so beautiful, you could see the time and effort that went into each one of them, just really fab altogether.

I loved this contact details for each supplier.  

My Husband came along with me and he was even impressed. We both agree that events like this were missing for us when we were planning. From chatting to some of the suppliers, we were in agreement that this is unique and something that has never been done before. 

The whole wedding planning process has changed since we got married.There are so many more options available now from venues,invitations,photographers and cakes.The list could go on,suppliers are offering more of a bespoke service.

Brides and grooms are doing more of what they want,everything seems so much cooler and just more relaxed.They are stepping away from the more traditional way of designing and planning their  big day.

What I liked about the event
  • The intimacy of it all from the venue to the suppliers.
  • That there was not 100's of suppliers.
  • Very relaxed feel to the event. 
  • Easy to get around.
  • Models walking around showcasing  the various wedding dresses.
  • From what I saw, the prebooked workshops were not too packed. This led to a relaxed look, so I am sure that brides and grooms to be felt like they were getting good interaction with the speakers.
  • The pop-up bridal shop. The dresses were stunning and the suppliers so lovely to chat with.  
  • The quality of the suppliers and their product.
  • The wedding inspiration to be gathered was on point.
  • There was no hard sell from any supplier, no grabbing or pulling you over.
  • And to end the sheer loveliness and freshness of it all.

Now I did fall in love with a beautiful modern vintage wedding dress. The beading detail was so stunning. It's  featured in the images below and is from Adorn Bridal.To be honest,the picture does not show the full beauty of it.

I am going to let the images speak for themselves. I really hope that I captured the essence of the event for you. I would describe the Glitter Studio Event as being, dreamy,inspiring and full of shimmer. Definitely get tickets for the next one, as I am sure that the organisers will host one again. As always comments and questions are welcome.

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.

Think about this, have you ever gone to a wedding and after dinner all you want to do is take off your heels and wear something more comfortable so you can dance the night away or have you only wished that you had of brought the hair clips and hairspray that you left at home...I know I have for sure, so do not let your guests go through these traumas at your wedding.
