Best of ColourPop 

For years now I have been glued to various YouTuber’s such as KathleenlightsNikkie Tutorials and Chloe Morello. These US and Australian beauties have been using ColourPop for a while now and my obsession for the brand grew along with their collection. The products were never available for international shipping and it always broke my heart. I adored watching these ladies rave about the products and I was ECSTATIC when they finally started shipping internationally. I quickly ordered an insane amount of makeup and I can honestly say I was never more excited. I had a firm idea of what I wanted and I added some new additions to my basket (I’m sorry I just can’t say cart).

My Week On Instagram 

The past few days have been crazy busy as I was in my beloved Kerry for my nephew’s Christening. We were all down for a couple of days and for the most part I was unfortunately sick. It’s just my luck as I didn’t get to enjoy nights out, all I wanted to do was sleep it off. The Christening day however was such a lovely celebration. I’m his Godmother and I was so excited to be a part of his big day. He was so adorable dressed in his little outfit and he was lapping up all of the attention. I can’t wait to see him next week in Spain in his little swimwear and splashing in the pool.

You Tube Favourites

For the past year now I have been obsessed with watching fashion and beauty videos on You Tube. I one day would love to start up my own channel and hopefully have a more interactive connection with my readers. Until then, I will live this goal vicariously through my favourite ladies.

These talented and entertaining girls have made such a strong name for themselves across the web. They have created their own make up lines with various make up brands, travelled the world with other bloggers and turned what they do into an amazing career.

Jaclyn Hill:

Probably one of the most successful You Tube channels, Jaclyn has over two million subscribers tuning in each week. Her outrageous and vibrant personality isn’t for everyone but I find her massively entertaining. She is an incredible make up artist who lives in Florida, and she can create pretty much any look. She loves a strong smoky eye and can pose in front of a camera like it’s no ones business. Jaclyn also collaborated with Becca Cosmetics to created a stunning highlighter called, Champagne Pop. You can read my post on it here.

In The Frow:

UK blogger, Victoria has really came into the limelight for her blog and You Tube channel within the past two years. She is a lover of tattoos, colourful hair and designer brands. Until recently she had purple ombre hair but she has opted for a more muted grey for Autumn. Her style also features on her channel and she creates look books along with haul videos.

Beauty Life Michelle:

This Irish beauty has been busy living it up at NYFW last week as she was giving the opportunity to attend some shows curiosity of Tresemme. Her channel is growing stronger every day and her make up looks are so pretty. I could spend hours just watching her create different looks. The Aussie based beauty is definitely one of my favourites and I actually think she was the first ever You Tube channel I started watching.

Vivianna Does Make Up:

A classic English girl, Anna is that girl next door. She comes across as a bit of a good girl with a very natural look. She is best friends with Lily Pebbles and the two often collaborate together on their channels and more recently have held some workshops at Space NK. She features a mixture of drugstore and high end products on her channel and creates very soft and sweet looks.

Kathleen Lights:

This quirky Latino from Miami is one of the funniest girls around who actually has no idea just how hilarious she is. Her story is quite inspirational, she is 23 years old and is married to a military man so she lives on base. She has such beautiful porcelain skin and she enjoys the drugstore products overall so she is perfect for those of you who like to shop on a budget. I was lucky enough to get my hands on her quartz shadow palette that she created with Colour Pop Cosmetics. It is so beautifully pigmented and I can’t wait to use it this season.

Within the next year I really want to get into the swing of starting up my own channel. It’s definitely on my bucket list but I’m just not sure how the Belfast accent will sound on camera. Haha!

My Week On Instagram ❤

So it has been a little while since I last blogged, sorry for the lack of posts but I wasn’t well for a few week’s. I’m thankfully now on the mend and very excited (as always) to get back to writing. I’ve spent most of the weekend drafting up some fashion and beauty features for all of you to enjoy. For today, I’m going to kick start things with some Instagram love. I’ve gathered a collection of my favourite shots that I’ve uploaded to my account over the past week.

I still managed to enjoy some online shopping (as you do) and I can’t wait to start experimenting with some of my new purchases. I finally jumped on the Zoeva hype and treated myself to the Rose Gold Complete Eye Set Vol.2 and their highly pigmented Coco Blend eyeshadow palette. The brushes are incredibly soft and the palette is one of dreams. Such warm and buttery shades that are perfect for creating a subtle or dramatic smoky eye. I also managed to get the must sought after Kathleen Lights quartz palette that she created with ColourPop Cosmetics. My man friend bought it for me when he was in America and I absolutely love it. I’m a HUGE fan of her You Tube channel and now I’m the proud owner of her palette. (Keep in mind, this product can only be purchased and shipped within USA).
