Hello and welcome my fellow makeup lovers.
You have stumbled upon my very first blog post (exciting times!) so it would probably be good to start off with a bit of an introduction.
I’m Eve, I’m an Irish 20 something living in Edinburgh dividing my time between working that corporate life and as a freelance makeup artist. It goes without saying that I love makeup, I love wearing it, I love applying it and I love buying it – although my bank account wishes I didn’t! I love helping girls look the best version of themselves whether it’s with a simple barely-there look or full Hollywood glam.
I’ve worked in the makeup industry since 2012 both on counter for a major cosmetics brand and as a freelance makeup artist; so you could say I’ve picked up a few things along the way. I really want to share tips and info that I swear by with all you lovely readers as well as new techniques and products that you need in your life. I’m always looking for the best products out there, how to achieve that ultimate Kim K glow and of course finding what’s really value for money.
The obvious question comes to mind, does the world really need yet another makeup blog? Truth is, maybe not but as clichéd as it may sound I love this community. When you’re a makeup junkie you’re always happy to help a sista out by telling her what highlight you’re wearing or what foundation gives you that flawless finish. That my friends is female empowerment if ever I’ve seen it (side note – if you’re not a feminist you can get to steppin’ we have no place for you here…). With that said, I want to share the knowledge I’ve gained through my experience and through good ole’ trial and error.
To tie it up, if you’re keen to see how to tutorials, tips for application, reviews on products or put simply your heart flutters at the sight of a winged liner that could cut a bitch then meet me back here…
