October GlossyBox



A new month means a new Glossybox!

This month it was the "Dark Romance" box, obviously in keeping with Halloween! 
Honestly after last months box (here) I was slightly disappointed this month :( Mostly because it wasn't very 'dark' at all! If your going to have a theme then stick with it!

What's My Face Worth!? Day Edition!

I've see this post popping up on loads of blogs over the past few weeks and I've been putting off doing one myself, basically because I don't want to admit just how much I spend on makeup! 

Some bloggers include their cleansing/moisturising products and maybe even brushes but just to save myself from a heart attack at the end figure I'm sticking with just the makeup :)

The products I'm limiting are for my "day face", but on a day when I actually have time to do my face properly which to be honest is quite rare..

Inglot Freedom Palette

Inglot palettes are my new favourite thing! I picked this one up in their new South Anne St Store (review here) and had such a hard time choosing between all of the beautiful colours!

Beauty Tip of the Week [8]

Take a day, a night or even an hour to yourself every week for some pampering. 
It doesn't have to be expensive - run a bath, turn off the phone and make a homemade face mask. Or even just paint your nails while listening to your favourite music!

Brown Thomas Haul

I was very very bold recently and went on a huge spree in Brown Thomas! Tut tut Sarah.. 
To be fair it was my first paycheck from a new job and sure it's pretty much obligatory to blow it, isn't it?!

I got myself some veryyyy pretty things though, so all is right with the world :)

Professional Beauty Dublin [Haul]

Professional Beauty Show hit the RDS in Dublin on 6th & 7th October.. It is a trade only event, and as a makeup artistry student I had the pleasure of being able to attend! 

It is an opportunity for professionals to stock up on kit, brushes, makeup and to showcase their talent in the competitions (there were zombies, fairys and others walking around - all looking spectacular!!)

After having gone to both a 50th and a 30th at the weekend I was on a bit of a budget, so decided that I would stick to a list and try not to get too carried away :) 

Here's what I got :

Beauty Tip of the Week [7]

When washing your makeup brushes use baby shampoo. 
If brushes are stained by overuse or dark colours then shampoo first, wash with baby oil and shampoo again

Beauty Tip of the Week [6]


For naturally curly, frizz prone hair, use a little conditioner as serum when just out of the shower. Rub through hair avoiding roots and don't wash out to help keep frizz at bay :)

LA College Halfway Mark!

Last week marked the half way point of my 10 week makeup artistry course in LA college of creative arts (here). 
To say I never want it to end is an understatement! I love the course! 
Each week we have a different tutor, so we get to pick new brains every other class and find out lots of different tips, tricks and techniques so we can then meld them all together and decide for ourselves which way we prefer to do things.

No.7 Pore Vacuum Mask [Review]


After reading the review of this on Beaut.ie (here) I was disgusted, intrigued and simply had to buy it!
Even the name itself - 'Pore Vacuum' sounds amazing (not that I'm into that sort of thing...)

It is a clay like mask that peels off, removing excess oil and unclogging pores while giving your skin a deep cleanse.
