Rituals Shower Scrub & Foaming Shower Gel Review

April 30, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

I was introduced to the Rituals brand in my March 2017 Birchbox. I got the Sakura Foaming Shower Gel as a sample. I loved it so much I purchased the Rituals Softening Shower Scrub to go with it.

So I suffer with what I call chicken legs (the red little bumps) & although I exfoliate, wax & moisturise, they don’t seem to want to go away. I purchased the Softening Shower Scrub hoping it may help. This product smells unreal. After first use, I definitely seen a decline in the little bumps read more

Bullying – My Experience

April 25, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 2

I want to write a post about the whole bullying topic & share with you my experience. I have been bullied throughout my childhood and a short time in my adulthood. I am not going to go into full detail about it. My bullying experience really took a lot out of me, made me insecure, fragile & not wanted. Sometimes, I still feel like that.

In primary school, I have been called ugly along with other names, my nickname was Godzilla. I had fizzy drinks poured over me, to me this was a normal read more

Colour B4 Remover Review

April 25, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

***This is my review from January 2016, so thought I would post it on my blog***

I was colouring my hair from August 2014 – January 2016 a red colour. I had decided to go back to blonde but instead of putting my hair through a lot of stress getting out the red by prelightening etc at hairdressers, I was recommended to try out the Colour B4 Remover, which contains no ammonia or peroxide and shrinks the artificial dye molecules in the hair, enabling you to simply wash them away.

AYU Angled Eyeliner & Pro Eyeliner Brush Review

April 25, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

I purchased these at the Irish Beauty Show in March 2016 and feel that I have used them enough now to review. I purchased the Angled Eyeliner Brush & Pro Eyeliner Brush, as I love eyeliner and it’s hard to find a good brush.

The Angled Eyeliner Brush (bottom brush in pic) can be used as a brow brush and eyeliner brush. The brush is really soft and it is perfect for getting your gel liner straight and to build it up if want it thicker! I have used other brushes but this one is just perfect read more

Milkshake Silver Shampoo Review

April 24, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

The grey/silver hair trend is still huge & I personally absolutely love it. You need your hair bleached to almost white to create a base. I get my hair done professionally, as I have seen far too many DIY disasters bleaching hair at home.

I was in the Hair & Beauty Company in Athlone purchasing a few bits for my salon & I asked one of the girls who worked there, Catherine, if there was a toner to go grey. They advised me of the milkshake silver shine shampoo, so I decided to give it a go & purchased it.

I wash my hair 2-3 times a week & left this shampoo on for about 5-10 minutes each time. This shampoo is extremely purple, it literally stains your hands if you leave it on for over 15 seconds without applying to your hair. I definitely seen results by the fifth wash, it was going a grey/purply colour.

I got my hair done again a couple of weeks ago & I repurchased this shampoo the week after. So this time when I washed my hair, I left it on for an hour before rinsing. It was definitely more silver. It took 3 washes in total, where I left the other 2 in for about half an hour each, as I wanted results quicker, to get my hair more silver. To get the results that I have pictured at the bottom to a really grey shade, I use the shampoo ever time I wash my hair, it takes a few goes.

The shampoo can dry your hair out if you leave it on a long time, so I leave in my conditioner for around 10 minutes after & I use a hair mask for about an hour once a week to keep it in good condition.

If you want to go back to blonde, just use head and shoulders shampoo, as this strips the colour out. That’s how I remove it before going into my hairdressers to get my hair redone.

This is the shampoo for you if you want to achieve the silver/grey look. It’s around the €10 mark, I’m not fully sure as I purchase other stuff with it when I buy, & you can get in any Hair & Beauty Company stores in Ireland.

What eyeshadow goes with your eye colour

April 24, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

Just thought I’d pop up a picture I saved from Google of what eyeshadow colours go best with your eye colour. I have had clients that have blue eyes think blue eye shadow or clients with green eyes thinking green eyeshadow would make their eyes stand out more. Well in a way they are right & not necessarily in a good way, as if you wear same colour eye shadow to your eye colour, they can make them look smaller and bland. The reason people would wear the same colour eye shadow to their read more

Why you should use a makeup primer

April 23, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

For me, a makeup primer is an essential in my makeup routine. A primer preps the skin before any makeup application.

Primer will help your makeup last for hours without seperating. All you need is a tiny amount (think pea size) & I apply it on my forehead, nose, cheek area (avoid under eye) & chin, basically anywhere you normally see your foundation start to separate.

Primers also help absorb any oil on your skin, which is ideal if your skin is oily. This will help reduce any shine. You read more
