WATCH: My Beauty Faves

Hi guys!

I always enjoy watching other’s current beauty faves so I decided to show you mine! As always I use a lot of budget friendly but excellent products. I also asked what videos you would be interested in on my snapchat and a good few seemed to request my beauty faves so of course I had to record it at some point!


I tried to vary the products I was talking about. I suggested my current favourite tan, primer, concealer, lip balm, cleanser, contour palette, highlighter etc.

My absolute favourite product I mentioned is definitely the SOSU contour palette. As I say in the video, all of the shades are amazing. It’s so so handy to have cream and powder contour shades and a gorge highlighter all in the one palette. All products mentioned and where they are available are listed in the description box of ‘My Beauty Faves‘ video.

As always, I appreciate all of your support,

My Beauty Bay order



Hey Guys!

It has been WAY too long since i’ve written a blogpost! Feels like years. It’s bloody ridiculous I should be put in the bin but I’ve been working hard on my YouTube! Woo! We finally got there. I will definitely be also doing a video for my channel (EmmaLou) including these Beauty Bay products so keep an eye.


So, I ordered from for the first time the other day so I thought I’d tell you a bit about it since a lot of you seem to be interested.

I ordered on Tuesday and my order arrived on Thursday! They said 5-7 working days so that was amazing. It was €100.70 for 9 Makeup Geek eyeshadows, a pigment and Morphe’s 12 piece makeup brush set, They then let me choose a free gift so I chose the St.Tropez gradual tan in shower lotion!





I mainly wanted to order Makeup Geek eyeshadows as I’ve heard so many good things about them. I had researched them to death and by researched I mean watched endless YouTube videos about them to decide which colours I needed to try!

The eyeshadows are €5.90 each which is pretty affordable as they’re the same price as Ingot’s eyeshadows. I just love how they’re all magnetic so you can put them in any flexi palette’s you’d like. So handy!



I chose the colours (Front left to right^):





Peach smoothie



Lemon Drop

Secret Garden


I also bought a Makeup Geek pigment ‘Vegas Lights’.  It was €8.70 for 1.4g. It’s a stunning rose gold pigment! I can’t count the amount of times I have went to Mac and Inglot to buy similar pigments (for double the price) and they’re sold out!



I am in desperate need of eyeshadow brushes for blending out all these eyeshadows so i decided to get Morphe brushes 706 12 piece black and white travel brush set. It was €25.30 which I think is soo affordable but we’ll have to see how good they are! (I’ll keep you posted on my snapchat)

I got their M459 flat contour brush as well as I’ve heard it’s great. It was €12.20.






Hope this was helpful! Any questions at all please ask me I love hearing from you!

Penneys/Primark Contour crayons

Penneys have really upped their game lately when it comes to their makeup, They’re PS just keeps getting better and better! I love their lipliners, lipsticks, lip crayons. Their makup brushes are also excellent for such a cheap price. They’re rose gold too which is the most important thing!

I spotted their contour crayons when they were just in and knew they’d fly out straight away! For only 3.50 how could you go wrong? The set has three colours: a light ‘highlight’, a medium shade ‘bronze’ and a darker brown ‘shade’.

I really like them I use them a lot for college etc during the day. They’re similar to the NYX wonder sticks. However, they don’t blend as easily. You have to blend them pretty much as soon as you’ve put it on your face for the best result.

I use a damp beauty blender to blend or my brush from Penneys which has a foundation brush at one end (I use for dark shades) and a sponge on the other (I use for lighter shades).

I sometimes use the medium bronze shade as a lipstick as it’s such a lovley light brown shade which I always find hard to find especially in drugstore! It’s matte which is amazing but it’s not drying as it has to be smooth to blend on the skin. A win win!

Nivea MEN Post shaving balm – as primer? 

Hi Guys, 

Been a while since i’ve written a blogpost! I’ve been just trying to get by using my social media sites and especially trying to get the hang of snapchat! Promise blogposts will be a lot more regular now when college finishes up! 

Anyway, I’ve seen the hype about this product or a good while but only recently got around to buying it myself. 

I’m one of those people who’s not great for remembering to put on primer and lately i’ve been trying my best to get myself into the habit of putting it on. I’ve been getting really bad blackheads so i’m hoping primer might help that!

I’ve used post shaving balm a couple of times now and i’m loving it! I liked it the first time I put it on but wasn’t sure if it would do much to keep my makeup on! It was amazing my makeup was still in very good knick even after a night out! 

I use it during the day aswell as at night and I think it does a great job! I’m all for cheap and affordable for us students and it’s only €6.95 in Boots! Amazing! The bottle is huge too so I’d imagine it will last for a good while! 

Hope that helped anyone thinking of purchasing!

Makeup product list

 Hi guys, 

Thought i’d put up a full product list from last night as I haven’t done one in a while! 

I used most of the makeup I always use at night but I’ve been blogging a lot about daytime makeup lately so thought i’d change it up! 


Foundation – Estee Lauder Double wear in ivory beige

I like this foundation for night time as it’s got good coverage. I love the colour as it matches well with tan as no pink undertone.

The only thing I don’t like is, it goes quite pale with flash because of it’s high spf. 
Contour – nyx wonderstick in medium

Inglot bronzer and sleek liquid illuminator in ‘Monaco’ to highlight
To set: Nyx dewy setting spray 💧


Eyeshadows- Inglot eyeshadow 55 above eyelid

326 in crease and under eye

Pigment 22 on eyelid

Eyeliner- Inglot eyeliner gel 77 

Mascara- Maybelline the colossal volum’ express 

Brows- Mac brow gel in ‘deep dark brunette’

Lips: penneys matte nude lipstick
