Revamp Dress

Hi everyone,

Hope your day’s going well, the weekend’s getting close now!

It’s been exactly two weeks since my birthday so I thought i’d better put up the deets on my outfit before it’s my next birthday!

I decided to go for a casual and girly look since I was feeling summery! I’ve been loving this light yellow lately so I decided to go for it.

I had a plain white skater dress from ages ago that I found in my wardrobe! So off I went to hickeys, I bought ‘sunflower yellow’ (knowing that it always turns out lighter). I also bought little white flowers to sew on.

I then dyed my dress, which was very simple, the instructions on the packet are so clear! I also dyed another small piece of white fabric for the waistband.

I wore these white Sandals from Urban Outfitters with it!

I wore quite simple makeup, a smokey eye and my usual nude lips! I put a small plait in the side of my hair and loosley curled it to go with my whole girly look

Russian Lashes – Simply Beautyg

foto1 (2)

Hey guys,

Today I got Russian style eyelashes done in Simply Beauty.  The salon is so nicely decorated and such a relaxing environment. They have so many treatments available. It’s located in Sandyford, just beside the Beacon.

My lashes took about an hour and a half/2 hours. It flew by though cause all I had to do was lie there with my eyes closed!

I absolutely love my lashes i’m so happy with them! They’re so natural as a few ultralight lashes are applied on each natural lash but they’re still noticeable! Looking forward to not having to apply fake eyelashes next time I go out!

Russian style lashes are also mink but feel a lot softer in comparison to mink. My eyelashes are so long and perfectly curled! i’ll keep you updated on how long they last etc! I’ll also post photos with makeup on as these are all without.

Why not make an appointment now?? Head over to Simplybeauty.ie

Wow Brown Tan Review👙

I’m a huge fake tan lover so I’m always looking for the next best thing!  I’ve wanted to try Wow Brown for a good while but haven’t got around to it. So, when I saw their stand at the Beauty Show I decided I’d give it a go. I went for their dark liquid.

Application:

I exfoliated and applied moisturizer to my knees,elbows and ankles before applying the tan with a tanning mitt.

It was very easy to apply as it is a dark brown shade so you can see where you are applying it to.

It dried very quickly which I loved because I can’t stand the sticky feeling of tan.

The box says to leave on for at least 5 hours so I just applied it before bed and washed it off the next morning!

Developed:

Colour – Loved the colour, it was a lovely golden brown. However, I think I could have done with a second layer on my legs and neck as they washed off a bit lighter than the rest of my body.

Smell – The smell after it had developed wasn’t bad at all which I was impressed with! It was definitely a lot more bearable than other fake tans.

Fade – It faded quite quickly. After one shower it had began to fade and not that evenly. I had to scrub it off after a few days because it was quite scaly. I probably could have moisturized more to have helped this.

Price: 20

I think it’s quite overpriced as the bottle is very small, only 100ml.

Hope this helped any of you who were thinking of trying Wow Brown,

Vita Liberata NKD SKN

Hi guys,

Vita Liberata kindly sent me some tan from their newest collection, NKD SKN. It’s quick and easy to apply and offers an instant bronze with no smell or streaking.

Their NKD SKN collection includes five tanning products which promise the most natural tan.

I tried their tinted liquid tan in dark and their tinted tan mousse in medium.

Tan Liquid – Dark & Tan Mousse – Medium:

tinted-tan-liquid-dark1L_NKD_TINTED_TAN_MOUSSE_MEDIUM

Liquid: 75ml –  12.00          Mousse: 100ml – 15.00

Prep:
I exfoliated well the day before hand. To do this I used exfoliating gloves, shower gel and body scrub. I Shaved my legs the day before.

How I applied it:
I had nothing on my skin beforehand, no moisturisers etc except for on the dry patches- elbows, knees and ankles.

I used my Vita Liberata tanning mitts. I started on my legs and worked my way up. Both were quite easy and smooth to apply. They are both brown in colour so it was easy to see where I was applying the tan.

It dried quite quickly and I got dressed about 5 mins after ( into loose clothing).

I washed it off the next day.

How it developed:

Liquid tan (dark) – Quite dark, it then turned into a golden brown when washed off.

Mousse (Medium) – Brown,  A natural golden brown shade when washed off.

Both tans were very even and extremely natural looking! I was very happy with both results. I think i’d slightly prefer the mousse though just because I always seem to go for a mousse I find them less messy than liquid tans.
