Update & Instagram

Oh my darling blog it has been a whole 18 days and I can only apologise <3
With college, work, assignments, birthdays, valentines day and everything else, I've been a busy bee this month! It's also my RAG week in college to top it all off!

This is just an update post to let you all know I'm still alive and this blog is going nowhere. Buuuuut if you want to see pictures of pretty makeup and clothes and my endless shopping, you'll find them on my Instagram @pookybanana . I've become a bit of an Insta Whore lately, I post on it all the time! I often post pictures of upcoming blog posts too, as you can see from below.

Anyways, I'm still alive and have an exciting post coming soon, a review and swatches of the concealer palette above that cost just €6!

Thank you for reading and thank you to all my followers for your lovely comments lately, I really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts!

much love xo

Valentine's Day Makeup

We're nearing that time of year again, VDAY!
We all know the traditional looks, red lipstick to play up on the colour attributed to the commercial event. The problem with that? Well, it's Valentines day, supposedly the most romantic day of the year. Chances are, you'll get a smooch and if you have red lipstick on, you can quite literally kiss goodbye to it (pun was 100% intended). So I have put together this post of quirky alternatives to the classic red lip. These looks aren't for everyone, but the eye and lip looks can be mixed and matched to suit your style. I used "They're Real" mascara by Benefit for a false lash effect without the false lashes!
