Nudey Nails Time

Hey girls,
I just wanted to show you a nail varnish I just picked up. It's from Rimmel, from their Kate range. It's in the shade New Romantic and is a soft Matt pink shade. Pale nude pink and beige tones are so big right now. I picked it up in Cassidy's pharmacy and it cost €6:49. Check out the pics below, it's such a wearable colour that's fab for this time of the year.

Makeup Masterclass with Joanne Larby - The Makeup Fairy

Hi girls,
Following on from my Bridal course with Inglot, I also had the pleasure of attending a masterclass with the very inspirational Joanne Larby - aka The Makeup Fairy. This evening class was a 3 hour class covering 2 different looks. I 've listed the products below with pictures.
I have to say this course was just brilliant. Joanne herself I have followed from the very beginning. I would scour the internet when I first started doing makeup and just loved her reviews and step by step tutorials. I hesitantly started blogging after falling in love with her blog. She has made a career out of her talent and she constantly amazes me how far she has gone. She is also just such a lovely approachable friendly girl. If Joanne does come back to Inglot girls I would highly recommend going to her class. For €20.00 you are getting a 3 hour masterclass with a very talented makeup artist.

Inglot Bridal Course Review

Hey girls,
I just said I'd give ye a quick overview on the Inglot Bridal course I have just finished. I just love doing masterclasses and watching how other makeup artists work. It helps you try new techniques and also pushes you as an artist to keep learning. When you specialise in Bridal it's so easy to fall into  a rut of using the same brands and colours. Doing these master classes you get to see the best of products that are specifically for bridal.
The course itself is a 3 night course which I think would be brilliant for beauticians trying to improve their makeup skills or for any makeup student just finished their diploma looking to specialise in Bridal. I think if you have worked as a Bridal makeup artist you will already have covered most things in this course. What it entails is a different look each night, covering the Classic Bride, the Vintage Bride and finally the Bohemian bride. The girls would demonstrate a different look each night and then you would try the look on your self with the help of the girls. Each night would run from 6pm to 8pm and the course itself costs €199.00.
I personally really enjoyed the course as I'm such a product whore. I loved getting so much product knowledge first hand and really getting to try all their best products. In my job its so important to be able to recommend products to clients.
The very best part of this course is Lisa and Lizan the 2 trainers. They have such a relaxed way of training. You laugh so much and learn with these two. They bounce so well off each other and go through everything and are so willing to help. My bank balance didn't like it as you end up wanting everything!!. I will do an updated Inglot haul next week featuring all these goodies and list my favourite new products.
