Makeup for me is not about masking my clients features. I want to enhance the beauty that’s already there. I want to make them feel the most beautiful, confident version of themselves.

S O O N : This is my submission for the @creativesagainstcovid19 poster design. The posters will be for sale and all the profits will go to the @ispcc_childline and @womens.aid.
.
The theme for the project was ‘soon’ and the idea is to promote positivity and hope. My concept is based around the seasons. Spring moving in to summer, the certainty that everything changes and that better days are coming for us all... ‘soon’ we hope 💕

O M O R O V I C Z A : A few weeks ago I was feeling pretty meh about my skin. It just felt sapped of all its goodness, was dry and looked really dull. I’ve been using up lots of my leftover skincare bits and decided to pop in to @spacenk on Grafton Street to have a nosey. I wanted a night cream and was happy to spend a bit of money so after sampling a few different creams I was sold on the Rejuvenating Night Cream from Hungarian brand @omorovicza. At €135 a jar it’s not cheap but this is a luxurious brand and you only need a small amount so a little goes a long way.
-
It’s one of the most beautiful creams I’ve ever used. It’s rich and buttery and contains carrot oil and pro-Vitamin A which helps in the production of collagen. I can’t say what the the long term effects are but my skin is definitely softer and feels so much smoother in the mornings.
-
The sales assistant also gave me samples of the Blue Diamond Concentrate serum, the Hydralifting Cream and two of their cleansers, all of which I really like and have definitely felt an improvement in my skin. Out of all them, I’ll will definitely repurchase the night cream. It’s pure luxury for you skin 💕

A N D B R E A T H : Well that was a week we’ll never forget. It’s been so intense with the influx of information and warnings from mainstream and social media. Some days I just had to switch it off because it was all just so overwhelming. I’ve been emailing back and forth with some of my brides who were supposed to be getting married in the coming months and so much is uncertain. They’re postponing and cancelling plans that they’ve spent so long organising and it’s heartbreaking for them. I don’t know when I’ll be back painting faces again and we have no idea when we’ll be out the other side but I do know that there’s nothing we can do to change things. So I’m going to try use this time to do the things I’ve been too busy to do. Exercise, getting out in the fresh air more, spending more time with my little family (in isolation), doing a few bits for my business and just enjoy a slower pace. I’ve become so used to living at 100 miles an hour, stressing, rushing, commuting... it’s time now to just breath 💕

This pic was this evening taken from my bedroom window.... not a bad view 👌🏻
