The Makeup Life!

Trip To America! 
Week in Pictures

So my brother and me headed to America for Thanksgiving! 
I love thanksgiving, its all the best parts of Christmas without the stress of buying presents
 - Food, Family and fun!

Me and my brother Michael

We landed into Boston Airport after a 7 hour flight from Shannon. The flight was so smooth, but my vegetarian meal was not nice at all - plain rice and steamed vegetables, everyone else got chocolate cookie, but I got a fruit salad I love cookies! :( what happened there!  

I love Massachusetts, I have to live there at some stage in my life!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           


So we headed to the mall, my brother totally embarrassed me by playing my video on one of the laptops, I did take the picture but very quickly walked away embarrassed! Love to get a Mac, one day I will I guess. 

Hey has anyone else noticed MAC and Mac are both very expensive and best in their own niche? No just me?? 

I didn't go into M.A.C. (we have it in Ireland) I did go to.....

As you can see I was pretty happy about it! lol


       I spent most of my money in there to be honest, they have such lovely stuff in there and then as you go to pay and you are in the queue they have loads half sizes very very tempting!! I gave in!

 I will hopefully film a haul and upload it tomorrow before I am off to England on Saturday, I dunno why I planned it like this its crazy!

Hope you all had a great week!

Glossy Box

Glossy Box Goodies!

So I haven't done a glossy box review in awhile, but I am super happy with the November box because I am heading to America on a long haul flight and I have to admit glossy box pick prefect goodies for me! (Not that they realise that though! ha)

WEI - White Lotus Hydrating Face Treatment Pad

It's well know that some gurus like to do masks on long flight, I have never tried it but I really wanna give it ago this time and I think this will be a great option!

Dr. Jart+ - Water Fuse Beauty Balm

BB creams are prefect for long flight, they give you a little coverage for those of you with uneven skin while hydrating and treating the skin!!
I own two by Dr. Jart+ Most Moist Water Fuse BB Cream
and Gold Label Premium BB Cream.

I plan on wear the water fuse BB cream while I fly as the cabin air is super drying on the skin!
The only thing I am not sure of is the one shade fits all.....Don't agree!

Alison Claire - Mango Body Butter

I adore body butter and this is awesome, smells amazing!! Great alternative to a perfume which can be kindof drying on the skin, this smells great and feels great!

Now I didn't get this large tub I got a sample but as I packed my camera already I could take a picture! Sorry!

Nail inc. 

I have owned one other polish by Nail Inc. I have Piccadilly Circus - and now 
- Porchester Square

I love these two shades, like my favourite colours! 

Dermalogica - Daily Microfoliant

Another great travel product, Its a powder so no trouble with liquids in security! Yes!
Wet your hands and face and shake out some powder and create a paste. It goes a little milky and creamy and breaks down make-up while lightly exfoilating! Feels amazing! 

Right I am off to finish packing, see you all very soon!

Would you be willing to look funny on the plane for the sake of great skin? 
Let me know!

Makeup Challenge

Benefit Blogger Challenge

So I entered the Benefit Blogger Challenge, you had to teach a male to apply makeup on you (such an cool idea) and it has an awesome prize! 
(More about that if we get into the second round)

Seeing as my boyfriend is camera shy (and in London) I only had my dad left to ask. I must admits that asking my ex professional rugby player father to do my makeup seemed crazy but my dad knows how much I really want this and so he put his all into it!

Here was me before we started! 
No makeup! 
Oh and my skin that has been pretty good decides to break out the day before which I worried might make it even harder for my  poor dad.

But no, my dad actually took on the information so well and managed to follow my instructions like a pro. 

By the end of it I looked in the mirror and it looked just like I had done it myself! 

        Yay go daddy!

We are in the final for the Benefit Challenge, please vote for us! Pretty Please!! 

Just click on the drop down menu and pick themakeupchair :)

Maybelline smokey shadow pencil - Black
Benefit "They're real" mascara
