Hi Guys and Welcome to Monday's Blog Post. I hope you are all having a really good day. How was everyone's weekend?? Yesterday i completed a 5K Charity Dog Walk with my dog Jack which was really good, as i'm doing the Flora Women's Mini Marathon this year it was nice to get a good walk done and get myself set for walking it.  Anyway enough about the weekend, for today's (MAKEUP MONDAY POST) i'm going to be sharing with you this COOL MINT GREEN MAKEUP LOOK, perfect for Spring!!


Below i'll be leaving a Tutorial for you all to try out and get this beautiful Spring Makeup Look, i will also be leaving a guide to the Makeup products i have used to get this look too!!

STEP 1: First i start off by using my So Perfect Stay Coverstick, which is by Miss Sporty Shade 001 Light. I use this Coverstick to cover any blemishes or spots i may have. I then apply my favourite Foundation which is Dream Satin Liquid by Maybelline Shade 04 Light Porcelain to my face using my Foundation Brush, I then apply a light dust of Neutral Translucent Loose Powder which is by Natural Collection to my face. I also define my Brows using my favorite Designer Brow Pencil by Essence.



STEP 2: I then apply some Natural Bronzer which is by Rimmel, to the apples of my cheeks to the top of my forehead too, blending it down towards the lines of my nose too. I love using Bronzer on my face especially now that we are in Spring, i feel it gives a nice glow to my face.



STEP 3: On to getting that Cool Mint Green Eyeshadow Look, First i apply a Cream Eyeshadow Shade which is from my Ultimate Colour Palette to the brow bone.



STEP 4: I then apply a Light Mint Shade also from my Ultimate Colour Palette to my Eye Lid.




STEP 5: Next using a Smokey Eye Brush i then apply a Dark Green Shade which is also again from my Ultimate Colour Palette to the crease of my eye to give a more defined look.



STEP 6: I then apply a little Eyeliner to my bottom eye line, the Eyeliner i am using is Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil, Shade 01 Black Fever. I also apply some Mascara to my Lashes too, the Mascara i am using is Lancome Hypnose Mascara Volume.



STEP 7: To finish off my COOL MINT GREEN MAKEUP LOOK, i then apply some Blusher which is by Bourjois (Shade 54 Rose Frisson) to my cheeks, i tend to apply it and then blend it in to the apples of my cheeks to give a better colour. For my Lips i then apply Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate (Shade 101), i love this shade as it blends in really well with the finished look.

FITNESS FRIDAY BLOG!!

Hi Guys and Welcome to today's blog post, i hope you are all having a great day. The weekend is upon us yet again, i hope you all have lovely plans for it. On Sunday, i'm going on a 5K Charity Dog walk in Aid of some Animal Rescue Shelters. I'm looking forward to it as its all for Charity and as its a Dog Walk, i'm going to bringing my dog Jack as out of the 4 dogs which i have he is the one that gets on really well with other dogs and people. I'll update you all how we got on in Monday's Blog. Back to today's blog, so as its Friday, it can only mean one thing its the 'Fitness Friday Blog'....keeping with the walking theme of this blog. I'm going to be sharing with Part 2 of the WALKING BLOG. For this one i'm going to be sharing with you WHAT TO WEAR WHEN WALKING and i will also be sharing with you a BEGINNER TRAINING PROGRAM too help get started.

WHAT TO WEAR WHEN WALKING??

When it comes to Walking, Comfort and Practicality are the key qualities you should look for when choosing the right clothes. The goal is to enjoy walking and to be totally unaware of what you are wearing. Having the right shoes and clothes can go a long way in making you feel comfortable and excited about going walking. Purchasing Light-Weight, Non-Cotton Clothes that can let you move around comfortably. Cotton Clothes absorb sweat and will leave you feeling damp and very uncomfortable.

My personal preference when it comes to Walking, is too wear a pair of Leggings as they are so comfortable, a Tank Top and a Sweater.  The Runners i wear our Skechers Flex Fit Black and Pink, i find these brilliant for walking in, they give you great posture and flex with your feet when out walking.

Below i have chosen some Footwear for you all to Check Out (just click on the image to find out all the info)

-Lightweight
-Move Freely
-Cushioning
-Athletic Design
-Memory Foam Cushioned Insoles
-Ultra-Comfortable


-Cushioning
-Natural Flexible Movement
-Shaped and Padded Ankle Collar for complete Comfort and Support

-Movement
-Flexibility
-Lightweight


 Below i have attached a BEGINNER TRAINING PROGRAM to help get started on your walking and to keep you all motivated.

THURSDAY'S NAIL SHADE OF THE DAY!!

Hi Guys and Welcome along to today's blog post, i hope you are all having a really good day. For Today's blog i'm going to sharing with you all my THURSDAY'S NAIL SHADE OF THE DAY!!

So the Shade that i'm wearing on my Nail's today is 'Rosehip' from NATURAL COLLECTION. I bought this shade in BOOTS a while back and i'm only getting around to wearing it on my nails now. 
I love buying beauty products from the brand NATURAL COLLECTION, from their Makeup Products to their Nail Shade Collection, they have a wide range to suit all which is really nice.
When it comes to applying their Nail Polish to my Nails, i tend to apply two coats so that it shows off that gorgeous shade on my nails.
I personally feel that this shade is an ideal shade for spring, with it been a gorgeous soft pink.

MY BEAUTY TUESDAY BLOG!!

Hi Guys and Welcome along to MY BEAUTY TUESDAY BLOG, i hope you are all having a really nice day. The weather here in Ireland today is gorgeous out, i managed to get an early workout done this morning and i'm planning on going for a long walk later, so hopefully it will still be sunny out. For today's BEAUTY TUESDAY BLOG, i'm going to be sharing with some Beauty Products that i have bought. Below i'll be leaving some info on where i bought each product and the price too.

So first up i bought HERBAL ESSENCES 'Ignite My Colour', i have used this in the past. Most recently i had been using the Volumizing Shampoo in this brand, but yet again i have changed back to the first one that i had used. This is really based on the fact that my hair is colored, so with the help of this shampoo this will leave my hair looking more vibrant every time i wash it. I bought this in TESCO for €2.79 as it was on offer. 

I also bought my favorite Dry Shampoo that i am also talking about, BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO FLORAL AND FLIRTY BLUSH which i bought in ALDI'S for €2.49.

Next up i bought this NIVEA HAPPY TIME SHOWER CREAM with Caring Bamboo Milk and Uplifting Scent of Orange Blossom. Once you have smelt this Shower Cream, you wouldn't know whether to eat it or using it as a Shower Cream, it smells gorgeous. I have used this brand in the past and have to say the Shower Cream itself leaves your skin feeling wonderfully soft and smelling beautiful. I bought this in DUNNE STORES for only €0.99cent as it was also on offer.  

I also picked up a packed of these JOHNSON & JOHNSON 'MAKEUP BE GONE' PAMPERING WIPES, this are the wipes i use all the time to re-move my makeup. I would definitely recommend you guys buying these because they really do work, i think that's why i keep buying them all the time. I bought these in TESCO for €2.00 as they were on offer.

I then bought a new toothbrush (i needed one), the one that i bought was this COLGATE SLIM SOFT DEEP CLEANING TOOTHBRUSH which is PINK!! (ah my favorite color). I bought this in TESCO for €2.99, unfortunately this wasn't on offer like the majority of the products that i have mentioned above that were on offer.

Next up is some MAKEUP PRODUCTS, first i bought my favorite LONG LASTING EYELINER BY ESSENCE (SHADE 01 BLACK FEVER), which was €1.99 and this EYESHADOW POT ALSO BY ESSENCE (SHADE 09 GET READY, SHIMMER EFFECT), which was also €1.99 both this Makeup Products are from LLOYDS PHARMACY. I tend to go to that pharmacy a lot due to them having a great ESSENCE MAKEUP RANGE.

MAKEUP MONDAY: HOW TO CLEAN YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES!!

Hi Guys and Welcome to MY MAKEUP MONDAY BLOG, i hope you are all having a great day. How was everyone's weekend, i hope you all had a lovely one. So for today's MAKEUP MONDAY BLOG, i'm going to be sharing with all of you how i clean my everyday Makeup Brushes.

Generally i would usually wash my everyday Makeup Brushes every 2 weeks or so depending on how badly they need to be cleaned. The method i use to clean them leaves my brushes feeling super soft and fluffy, i do love the way they feel after they have been cleaned. Cleaning your Makeup Brushes is sooooo important. To be honest with you all, its kinda really bad using dirty Makeup Brushes on your skin. Just think of the amounts of bacteria that is filling up on your Makeup Brushes if you don't wash or clean them regularly.. :-( Defiantly not all that nice.  So come on girls lets get them Makeup Brushes and give them a good wash......


STEP 1: First take a Small/Medium Bowl, some Baby Shampoo/Baby Bath (Mild, Soap Free, Hypoallergenic), a Towel and of course your Makeup Brushes. (I have had to use this Baby Bath from Cussons Mum & Me as i didn't have any Baby Shampoo handy)


STEP 2: Take your Small/Medium Bowl and add a small amount of Baby Shampoo/Baby Bath into it.


STEP 3: Next add some hot water to your Small/Medium Bowl, do add a little cold water to cool it down a bit.


STEP 4: Then place all your Makeup Brushes into your Small/Medium Bowl, or as many as you fit from the picture below....


STEP 5: Leave your Makeup Brushes to rest in the bowl for a couple of minutes (as you can see from the picture below, i have had to take some of my makeup brushes out because there wasn't enough room). Once you have left them to rest in the bowl, now twirl the brushes around in the water, this will show how much dirt is really on those brushes (not nice at all).


STEP 6: If you have Foundation Brushes, they might need to be left for a bit longer as they do consume a lot of dirt within the brush.


STEP 7: Next rinse each brush in cold water, this will get rid of any dirt that might still be on your Makeup Brushes.


STEP 8: Now leave your Makeup Brushes to dry, i usually place mine on the draining board to dry for a while, then i will eventually move them on to the towel to dry overnight. (you can also leave them on a radiator to dry too)


STEP 9: If you feel that your Makeup Brushes are taking a long time to dry or if you need to use them straight away, then use your Hairdryer to dry them, i find this really handy as they dry so quick. ( If you do decided to dry them using a Hairdryer, dry them with the handle part of the brush facing you with the bristle end facing the other way, as this will dry them keeping the same shape as they were before you washed them).

And your done....

Now you have SUPER SOFT MAKEUP BRUSHES....(you only have another 2 weeks till you have to wash them again)
