I was wearing one of my long-time hero Benefit Cosmetics products today which I hadnt worn it a while. I dont know why I keep forgetting about it because everytime I wear it, I fall in love with it all over again. So I was going to use it in a MOTD post until I went onto the Benefit website to get the link and price for you when I realised that it has been discontinued! I’m finding out recently that lots of my favourite products are on their way out! I’m totally gutted. I’m extremely sad to see Rush Hour be discontinued. So I checked online and there are a few places have left over stock, which you know I will have to panic buy now!
It’s so disappointing when this happens to products you love! Has it happened to you with certain products? I’d love to hear the products you miss the most.
In the meantime, here is a little tribute shot of me wearing Rush Hour, you can totally see the sadness and disappointment on my face haha.

Sorry Ive not posted the past few days, I’m away on holidays next week (yippeeee) and I’ve had so much to catch up on before I go (booooooo).
So since I have two minutes to spare I thought first actually apply some makeup which is alway helpful for a MOTD and then I could pop up a quick MOTD post for you 🙂 Todays look was a nice and bright summer look with flawless skin and soft contouring.

Oh I LOVE playing with new Palettes. This is the second of the two new palettes I bought from the Makeup Pro Store in Belfast. It is my Make-up Atelier Paris and is so versatile.
I woke feeling a little under the weather today so I’m feeling the need to smoke it out a bit. I didn’t sculpt my brows too much today as I am in and out of business meetings all day and don’t want to frighten anyone when up close and personal haha.
I actually used the Eyeshadow Palette to shade my brows a little so they are well matched. I just applied a bit of clear brow gel to my brows first and then used a thin angle brush to shade.
Here is my Make-up of the Day – As per usual, larger images are at the bottom.

Well today is my ‘Day-Off’ and I don’t have anything very exciting planned except heading out for lunch with my lovely hubbie and doing a bit of shopping for our Summer Holidays (Yippeeeee!)
So in terms of makeup I didn’t want to wear anything to heavy so I opted for a warm subtle smoky eye with some white pencil in the lower waterline to keep it light looking. I didn’t use any illuminators today as when I use the FOM Cosmetics Moisturiser and Hello Flawless Foundation together you get a lovely dewy finish to the skin.
So here you go, here is my makeup look for today. Larger Images and full product listing with links and prices are below.

I’m off out to see comedienne and top model Diona Doherty in a preview of a new comedy sketch so I opted for a bit of colour on the eye tonight.
This is proof that you don’t necessarily have to spend £50.00 on an eyeshadow palette to create a great look. This eyeshadow palette is available to buy for only £3.99!!! That’s not to say that all drugstore eyeshadow palettes will be great.

Festival Season is without a doubt one of the most exciting times of the year! But lets face it – It’s not always the most attractive. Fear not my lovely little darlings! I have round up our authors to give you their favourite product to get you through your festival mischief!
So here you go, our Prize Picks :
My Prize Pick:
Benefit Cosmetic’s ‘Big Easy’ – £27.50
When it comes to Festival time, unfortunately we won’t have our little vanity dressing table set up in our tents waiting for us to beautify ourselves. So my prize pick has to be Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy – ‘Bigger than BB’. You can apply this super BB Cream with your fingers completely in the absence of a mirror, it blends on like a cream and sets as a powder. It is the perfect product to even out skin tone and conceal blemishes. So you can look naturally hot and flawless at all times!
Jennie’s Prize Pick:
St Tropez – Self Tan, Dark Bronzing Lotion – £33.00
Old faithful! I have always been a massive fan of St Tropez! This is perfect for any festival goer as it will keep you looking bronzed, but without any give away that the tan is fake. Let’s face it, at a festival you’re not spending hours lazing around in the sun, so your tan needs to be extra good to ensure people won’t know that it is fake! In my opinion, this product gives off the most natural colour of all products that I have tried. Their advanced formulation contains innovative melanin technology that ensures your tan is tailored to suit your individual skin-tone. Winner!
Louise’s Prize Pick:
Nails Inc. Bling It On Neon kit – £12.00
White nails will be in full swing this festival season, perfect for complimenting our beautifully bronzed skin tones whilst rocking out to our favourite bands. However we know that festivals always require a bit of adornment & embellishment, whether it be your hair, outfit or nails. This Bling It On Neon kit is perfect for jazzing up this seasons go to nail colour. I’ll be putting it in my bag so I can keep my white & neon glitter mani topped up at all times!
Gillian’s Prize Pick:
Lush – No Drought Dry Shampoo – £3.75 – £6.75
Well it’s got to be dry shampoo, without a shadow of doubt!! A few days ago, I got handed Lush’s ‘No Drought Dry Shampoo’. I don’t want to give too much away (because I have an awesome review coming very soon) but I am really impressed. Not only does it clean up but it also deodorises the hair as well. It is most definitely the first thing in my festival bag after my wellie’s!
So there you have it – Our top product pick’s to get your through those festivals all while looking amazing! All that is left to do is dance your heart out and enjoy! ♥
