Party Prep - Spray Tan, Make Up & Gelish Nails - Julie's Diary - Week 6

Hey everyone!! πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š

It's week 6 as #faceofmint and its "glam squad" time πŸ’„πŸ’… woohoo!
Every year, all the ladies in my family head to Cork for the weekend for our traditional annual shopping trip (and general divilment πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰). Of course I wanted to look and feel my best so the lovely girls in Mint were on hand to help me out!

On Thursday last, I popped into Mint to see the lovely Nadine to get a new colour on my nails. I was looking for something with a little sparkle so I chose "let's get frosty" from the new Gelish Christmas collection... It's a gorgeous silvery gold shimmer and glitter and will go perfectly with any outfit!! πŸ‘—πŸ‘ 
There are some other fab sparkly colours in this range too so have a look and see what you might like 😊

It was onto spray tanning next and Mint use Vita Liberata....
Vita Liberata is the world’s first completely non-toxic tanning brand, free from parabens, perfume, alcohol, sulphates and all other chemicals of concern. Its choice of organic and natural skincare extracts are key to its formulas so its more than just a tan treatment!!

Having had this done before, it is definitely my favourite brand, wether it be in the form of a professional salon spray tan or a self tan that I would use at home... I just couldn't go past it!
And with celeb fans like Gwyneth Paltrow, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and Sofia Vergara raving about it, if it's good enough for them... It's good enough for us! 😊🌟

I had prepped my skin the week leading up to my spray tan by exfoliating all over and moisturizing dry areas especially. On the day, I had my shower as normal but didn't moisturize as this can sometimes cause a barrier for your tan.
During the treatment, Nadine was so thorough and made sure she covered every part perfectly! I went for the full body spray tan. You are given your "gorgeous" disposable undies to wear πŸ˜‚
It may feel a little daunting standing there getting it done but its not like the girls at Mint havnt seen it all before! I was so comfortable with Nadine and she was so professional! 🌟 so there's absolutely nothing to be worried about ladies 😊 treat yourselves!! I personally feel so much better and confident in myself and in my clothes with a little tan. The Vita Liberata turned out perfect... A really nice warm natural glow.... No dreaded orange in sight!! πŸ‘ŒπŸŠπŸš«
Mint have fab little gift packs in salon too, they would be perfect to pick up for a little Christmas Pressie or stocking filler! πŸŽ…

On the Friday morning before heading to Cork I had my appointment made with the very talented Maighread who is Mints Makeup Artist... This girl is amazing 😍
We went full glam with with a gorgeous Smokey eye with a few extra individual lashes and finished with a red lip πŸ’‹
She kept my foundation really beautiful and dewy but with a nice coverage and went for subtle contouring. Well......I only LOVED IT!! I was beaming walking out of Mint!! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ It literally lasted me all through a day's shopping and into the night with only needing to re-apply my lippie 😘🍷 Maighread used Buff Make up which is an Irish brand and its also sold in salon too. Buff have so many beautiful products in their range... I can't wait to have it done again!!

So that's all for week 6,
Thanks again for reading guys πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ’—πŸ’—
