The Perfect Summer Shoedrobe

The Perfect Summer Shoedrobe

What exactly consists of a perfect summer shoedrobe? I guess it's all about personal preference, but for me all year around (not just summer) it's all about comfiness. I am definitely the kind of woman that has not worn proper high heels in a good few years and pretty much avoid it at all costs. I still like a bit of height in my shoes sometimes though, but prefer to opt for wedges or platforms like you can see in my recent summer addition... the Moda In Pelle Romina Wedge Sandals*. So let me tell you a bit more about these summer sandals along with the other top picks in my summer shoedrobe...

A Touch of Luxury with Lancome

A Touch of Luxury with Lancome

Thanks to House of Fraser recently I was lucky enough to experience my first taste of luxurious brand Lancome, with a various range of their products. I've tried the odd products from Lancome in the past, but this is definitely my first proper introduction to the brand and their makeup products in particular. Straight away I am impressed with the packaging, I know that 'looks' shouldn't matter but who can resist packaging this pretty am I right?! Overall there is a luxurious feel as soon as you look at the products and with high end brands that's always a good sign, because if you're going to spend more money on something you also want to make sure that it looks good too (I know I do anyway). So let me tell you a little bit more about the products I was sent over...

Colour Correcting with Inglot

Colour Correcting with Inglot

Unless you're living under a rock you may already know that the beauty world has been introduced to yet another makeup trend. This time it's all focused on colour correcting, which uses the theory of colour harmony to neutralise specific skin concerns. This isn't a new makeup concept by any means, as makeup artists worldwide have used colour correcting on sets for years, but in recent months it was bloggers & YouTube gurus that shed a new light on this makeup technique. Like with all beauty trends, I never fully commit to any because most of them just don't suit my makeup routine. However I do like to take inspiration from each trend and adapt to it in my own way. I was tempted to just go ahead and buy one of the many colour correcting palettes available on the market at the moment, but soon realised that they all had way more shades than I personally needed... so I finally made the decision to stick to a more personalised form of colour correcting. This is where Ingot came in along with their fantastic Freedom System.

Everyday Summer Makeup Menu

Since arriving in Dublin, I have to say I've been quite lucky with the weather and it's actually been sunny most of the time (which is quite a rare thing here in Ireland but I'm definitely not complaining). It just means I'm in full summer mode at the moment and so is my makeup, as I'm keeping things quite minimal yet trying to create that bronzed kind of look. I've been trying out a lot of new makeup recently and this combination right here has been my go to. I'm simply loving some of the products and they are definitely agreeing with my skin, not to mention that they sit well through the warmer days also. So let me talk you through some of the new makeup additions and show you my finished makeup look...
