Starting today and each Friday, we will be bringing you are top beauty picks of the week! All tried and tested by us!
I picked up this Havanna eyeshadow set from Penneys for a bargain. It was reduced from €6 to €3.
I just couldn't leave it there! I'm a huge fan of the "beauty on a budget" concept, and these shadows prove that you don't need to spend a fortune for a great product.
The colours are just beautiful - especially for a summer look, and they are really pigmented and easy to blend and work with. Lets face it - the packaging is so cute too! I'm a huge fan of Inglot shadows, but these are just fantastic for the price. You get 10 shades including 5 mattes and 5 lovely shimmery tones. The looks you can create with this fab little pallet are endless. Grab it while you can its a must have for any makeup kit. 😊
I stumbled across this little gem when I was shopping for Catrice All Matt Plus foundation. Catrice is fast growing as a major beauty budget buy and it does exactly what it's supposed to. The Prime and Fine Beautifying Primer is a gorgeous smelling, pink liquid of amazingness! It instantly gives your face a coverage that blends out any blemishes and leaves it dewy looking, without shine. I wear Catrice foundation at work and I find the primer works best with this foundation. But it literally brightens my skin instantly and feels gorgeous on. It lasts a long time too (I've had mine just over 2 months, but note the recommended shelf life of it is 12) Found in Penneys and most pharmacies.
Go get it! You won't be sorry!

This week my go-to product is NYX “SK01 Shine Killer”.
It is an absolute MUST for this weather. You can wear it alone or over makeup. It doesn’t provide any SPF though, so make sure your face cream/moisturiser or sun lotion is on before it. I use it 1st, so I put it on before any of my other makeup. I don’t use a brush to apply it, just clean hands/fingertips as its very watery in the heat. Also, a little goes a long way, 2 pea sized amounts provides coverage for my whole face.
It makes your face appear to have a “matte” look to it. So, it stops that nasty glare you get on your face around your forehead and nose. If like me, you get sweaty upper lip (what even is that?! Haha) then it also helps to stop the makeup wearing off! Very handy if you’re heading on a night out that involves lots of dancing and drunken antics

I dont wear foundation during the day, but I like to protect my skin from sun damage and even out my skin tone. This all in one skin perfector is the perfect combination for day time wear and gives a radiant luminous complexion. It also has a built in SPF15 UV protection, evens out skin tone, smoothes fine lines, hides redness, dark circles and blurs imperfections, to give you a lustrous complexion without the heaviness of a foundation. Its also nice and light for under the eye, and can be used on its own or as a base for foundation.🌸 Fifi xx
One of my favourite beauty items is lipstick. If I am feeling particularly lazy make up wise, slapping on some bright lipstick can change your look with minimal effort. I love to experiment with colours.
At the moment I am particularly in love with vice lipstick by Urban Decay. There are so many beautiful colours and they stay so well!
At a beach photoshoot I spent several hours in the rain and sea. By the end my make up was smudged or non existent except my lipstick which was pristine. It hadn't budged at all! Definitely a must have in any make up lovers bag
