Interested in beauty? Train with the elite!

I regularly get emails from people interested in getting into the beauty industry and how best to get trained or involved. So, here’s the best place that you could train for all things HD Brows, lashes and nails. I do enjoy a good brow and this place has only elite trainers teaching new budding brow enthusiasts. Having been a makeup artist for a number of years, I found myself at a bit of a cross-roads with regards to up-skilling. I knew I had a real passion for beauty, even beyond makeup artistry.

I began to research HD Brows and the best place to train for these. I came across the Beauty School in Warren’s Point. After some talks with the school, I was in no doubt that this was the place for me. The girls there are informative and open to any questions, or worries, you may have. Trust me, you will have worries and doubts, deciding who to train with is as big as doing the course itself. If you’ve been trained badly, it will show in your work. Let’s be honest, how many bad brow and lash jobs do we see on social media? Too many!!!

So, here’s the best place that you could train for all things HD Brows, lashes and nails. I do enjoy a good brow and this school has only the best elite trainers in Ireland teaching new budding brow enthusiasts.

For me, reputation is everything, and how you are dealt with after you have spent your money and trained. Since completing my course with the Beauty School, I still have lots of interaction with them, from ordering products, course updates, refreshers courses or just picking their brains, I always feel like someone is an email away.

Having the backing of the Beauty School behind me and their training has made me much more confident in the beauty world and has made me want to undertake further training. My HD Brow training has unlocked some much more for me and my clients. You can never be too clued in in the beauty world, it’s ever-changing. And I don’t want to be that ”out of touch” beauty person still rocking a look from 10 years ago.

MAC’s Waterweight Foundation

So, as you may have gathered by now, I am quite the slut for MAC. There’s very few products within the range that I don’t like, they are my go to brand. They’ve recently added a new foundation to their range, waheeeeyyyyy… *does a little wee in the pantalons*. It’s the Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation and it’s an excellent addition to their foundation lineup. I love the Face & Body Foundation and if you like that, than you’ll really like this foundation too. The water-like formula sets to a satin finish that is neither matte nor moisturising—striking a balance that makes this an option for nearly any skin type, including the acne-prone. Woop! There’s also an SPF 30 + in this foundation too. Not only is it making your skin look sh*t hot, it’s also protecting it.

Housed in a heavy glass bottle with a dropper applicator (there’s those bleeding droppers again, they are everywhere!!), Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation is a clever addition to the recent trend of serum foundations. This provides initially sheer coverage that can be layered to medium and looks incredibly natural on skin because let’s be honest, no one wants a cake face, except for X-Tina that is..

Due to its fluid nature, you may be surprised by how little you need to cover your whole face, unless you’ve a face like the moon that is!!  A few drops were more than sufficient for a full face and it easily evened out a  my complexion.

This blends effortlessly onto skin—whether you use your fingers, a sponge or brush. Those with oily or combination skin will likely love how light this feels, while those on the dry side will find this layers well over a richer moisturiser and resists clinging to dry patches. This does not control shine well, nor does it claim to, so expect to powder and/or blot as usual.

Mac currently offers this in a stunning array of 23 shades that includes the most common shades between fair to deep skin tones. As this has a lighter degree of coverage, the shades are more forgiving!

You can get your Waterweight foundation in Brown Thomas today. It’s €36.50 and if Santa was real sound, he’d bring this for you 😉

Teeth Whitening from Whitening at the Square

Whitening at the Square Tallaght invited me to test out their 1 hour whitening treatment and I accepted in a flash. Who doesn’t want whiter teeth?!

I was greeted by Niamh upon arrival and within minutes I was ready to go. Check me out, I’m like Elton John meets Futurama.

I had a 30 minute session, a two minute break and then the second half of my treatment. The time went quite fast and it was good because  I was lying down too, I’d had previous whitening done two years ago and I had to sit up and it was only for 20 minutes but it was a pain in my Nicki Minaj. Niamh also checked on me regularly to make sure I was comfortable and not dribbling all over myself(!) which was also another plus in my book.

Whitening at the Square use a solution that has less than 0.1% of peroxide and their equipment uses a cold blue light accelerator in order to achieve a desired look.

After the treatment, I was told to make sure I stuck to a white diet in order to get the best results. I followed this religiously fo for the next 24 hours, even foregoing my beloved tea. I could definitely see a difference in my teeth, and I noticed that they were nowhere near as sensitive as the previous time I had my teeth whitened.

It’s now almost three weeks on from my treatment and they are still looking great. I’d recommend this treatment to anyone looking to spruce up their teeth, I was instantly summer ready. I would recommend to get your teeth cleaned by a Dentist before this procedure to ensure the ultimate return from your treatment.

You can check out Whitening at the Square here or on Facebook. They regularly do great special offers so keep your eyes peeled – it’s currently €90 for the 1 hour treatment but you can book online and save some moolah. It’s worth it!

Happy Smiling,
