Basically a Boots Haul
Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and that you’re having a lovely September so far.
When I was back in Ireland during the holidays last month it was pretty much a rite of passage for me to go to Boots and to see what they had. Since it doesn’t exist in France and we don’t always find the same products here, I always have so much fun browsing the rails for makeup and beauty bargains so today I’m super exited to share what I got with you!
Beauty Kits to Start the Year
Going back to school and uni is always rough, especially when the time comes where we have to admit to ourselves that the summer is actually over and early mornings are about to become a daily thing again. As a person who hates the feeling of rotting away in classes I don’t care about, the end of the summer tends to bring about a lot of stress and existential dread for me. (Can any fellow arts students relate?)
On the other hand though, there is something nice about this time of year. The late summer always makes me feel pretty nostalgic for when I was still actually in school and then there’s the fact that the silver lining of the back to school season is that it’s a great excuse to treat yourself to some new things.
We all deserve to start the year out feeling refreshed and renewed after the summer break. You don’t need to buy a whole new wardrobe. Sometimes something as simple as changing up your makeup can be invigorating enough to take on the new year.
For today’s post I put together some makeup recommendations for those September mornings where you’re rushing out the door in a panic but still want to slay your makeup.
Hello my lovelies! I’m checking in with you today to let you know that there is a new makeup video over on the channel.
In this video I create this romantic bronzed look for summer. It’s quite natural and easy to do and I made it using my Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette and my Sephora Vivid Earth Bronzing Palette.
Do feel free to check the video out here if you’re curious!
MY KPOP INSPIRED MAKEUP AND CIRCLE LENS HAUL
OUR NEW VIDEO IS LIVE ON THE YOUTUBE CHANNEL!
Today’s video is all about Korean circle lenses and Korean inspired makeup. Myself and my special camera man put together a little lookbook in Paris for you guys! Also the video features me unboxing the lenses and generally being an idiot on camera so check it out!
I’d really be so grateful for you guys to support my youtube channel and especially this video because I know you’re going to love it!
Just thought I’d pop on here to promote the video because YouTube’s algorithm does not help small creators at all and I need all the love I can get !
I’ll put a full post on the blog tomorrow but if you want a sneak peak then you should definitely head on over to the video now.
That’s all from me for now. Thank you guys so much for watching the video and I’ll see you very soon!
How I’m Saving My Damaged Hair
I don’t know about you but my hair has certainly been through a lot over the past year. Between bleaching it twice, toning, straightening, and blow drying on a regular basis I’m not stranger to split ends, breakage and dullness.
Ever since I bleached, balayaged and highlighted my hair one year ago, the thickness and softness has never been the same. I honestly am convinced that colourists are lying when they tell you that the work they do doesn’t damage your hair because mine has been drying gout and shedding like crazy ever since I highlighted it. It’s terrible now how empty I feel whenever I run my fingers through my hair sleek and shiny hair because the thickness is just not there anymore and each time I so much as touch my hair I end up yanking out massive clumps of it.
You shouldn’t get me wrong however, shedding is completely normal especially in the warmer months but dryness and extreme breakage on the other hand is a sign of chemical/heat damage. That is exactly why I’ve really stepped up my haircare routine lately with the goal of restoring my dead ends back to the long, luscious locks that they once were.
For this post I’m sharing my haircare regime with you guys in the hopes that it will help you too if you’re experiencing haircare woes in the same way that I am.
A New Beginning for LaDameWhoFellToEarth
It’s been about a month now since I launched my beauty business over on Instagram and I’ve honestly been so busy with it that I haven’t even had the chance to make a blogpost about it!
As a fashion and beauty blogger I moved to Paris two years ago to follow my dream of turning my blog into an actual business that would be profitable for me. Although I haven’t fully made it yet as a full time blogger, getting partnered with a multi-million dollar beauty company means that I’m one step closer to converting LaDameWhoFellToEarth into a fully fledged business.
When I got partnered with NuSkin I accomplished a huge goal of mine because it meant that I could finally break into the beauty industry with a huge multi-national company specialising in makeup, beauty and skincare having my back.
So what does this actually mean for our blog now? Here is where it actually gets pretty exciting!
Now that I have my own beauty range of liquid lipsticks you can now buy them from me over on my Instagram by dropping me a DM. These products have won so many awards in the past for their premium quality and NuSkin have also been featured in Forbes as being one of the Top 5 most trustworthy businesses in the world so you know you’re getting bag for your buck.
How I’m Keeping My Skin Clear This Spring
Hello everybody and welcome back to another beauty post here on LaDameWhoFellToEarth. Lately my skincare obsession has been stronger than ever, especially with summer just around the corner.
I’ve mentioned it a thousand times already here on our blog but ever since I left Ireland and moved to France I’ve been focusing so much more of my attention on taking care of my skin than I have been on my makeup. Beauty in France is all about the epidermis and so many of the girls here get away with leaving the house completely foundation-free on a daily basis because of how well they look after their skin.
The way I’ve always seen beauty is that when it comes to makeup and skincare, it’s so important to see the face as the canvas while the actual makeup that you use is like the paint with which you create your work of art. If the canvas is damaged, your job as an artist is going to be much more difficult and demanding. This is exactly why it’s so important to keep the quality of your base in tact.
In a recent post I mentioned that I love the products by the brand Fresh and the way that they leave my face feeling so hydrated and nourished. In today’s post I’m going to be talking about their rose infused products and how I’ve been using them to clear up my complexion.
