Hey all!!! 👋👋👋
It's week 23 and I'm back in Mint to get all dolled up for my lovely friends birthday celebrations 🎉🎁🎊
Mints head therapist Marie was on hand to transform me from glum to glam lol! 😉 yaaaayyyy!!! 😁
As I propped myself up at Mints fab makeup bar, myself and Marie chatted about what colours I would like to go for and what I was thinking of wearing on the night.
((Now, I had two outfits planned but I hadn't tried them on... And you know when you have it pictured in your mind and then when you eventually try it on at the last minute that night and it all just goes horribly wrong and doesn't look right at all at all....!! 😩
So you then proceed to tear apart your wardrobe in a panic... Hangers and heels flying everywhere!! 👠👡👚👗😂
Until you finally find something that your happy with! lol 🙌🙌
Well... That's pretty much what happenedto me 🙈
Sooo, as I tottered out the door that night, leaving a path of destruction behind me 😂
...My poor bedroom resembling something that had been hit by a tornado.... Or #hurricaneJulie 💨
All that aside, I was still super happyand confident in knowing that my make up was on point and my lashes were on fleek!! 😙😙 yaaaaaassss gurrrlll! lol
And this was all thanks to Mint Kilkenny 😊))
Right.... Let's get back to the glam! 😊
Because I was unsure about what I would be wearing, Marie suggested a colour palette that would suit both outfits.
All the makeup used for this look was BUFF MAKEUP IRELAND which is a leading Irish brand that is very quickly gaining a cult beauty following 👏👏
The selection of products from this brand are vast and the choice of colours are endless! Their powders and shadows are highly pigmented and just super fab in general!
I might just be their No.1 fan!! 🙌
My absolute favourite product from Buff has to be their "Sheer Glo" luminating lotion which can be mixed with your foundation to give a glowing, dewy effect on the skin, or just blended over your foundation to highlight certain areas. It's honestly soooo good!! ✨✨
Marie started with a little concealer and then built up my foundation base, using a little of the sheer glo to highlight.
She then shaded the brows to give better definition.
Then it was onto the eyes 👀
Now this is where it gets exciting!!
The colours Marie used were GORGE!!!
A super bright orange being one of them! When she had finished blending, and and adding more colours, and a little liner and mascara and basically working her magic💫 ....my eyes just popped! And the Orange blended base looked amazing!!! 😍😍😍
For the finishing touch we decided to go all out glam and added NOUVEAU LASHES IRELAND Strip Lashes in Natural Style1. These... Are... AMAZING!!! 😱😱
They felt so light weight that I didn't even feel like I was wearing them, but they made such an impact on the eyes 💗
Marie then finished the overall look with some light contouring and a pop of bronzer.
She ever so slightly overlined my lips to give the illusion of more volume and finished them with a beautiful lipstick 💄
And that was it, I was glammed up and ready to go and I literally felt amazing and so confident leaving the salon 💗
