Tellybox Beauty Breakdown ft Clinique, Tarte, Hourglass, Urban Decay, Clarins & Laura Mercier!




Intro to Tellybox Beauty Breakdown - The Series: 

Yes, I've been talking about these beauty posts for months now, but, as these pictures taken in the Virgin Media car park before I go back to IRL work can attest, I'm a busy woman. The beauty side of this blog has suffered and Imma try to right that wrong. I've been lucky enough to be a panelist on Virgin Media's Elaine on for over two years now ( I KNOW!). If you're not Irish, think of us as Looser Women - I'm biased but we rock. All outspoken, opinionated, hilarious women, unafraid to stand up for themselves and others. Of late I'm on the tellybox an average of 3-4 days per month, during my lunch from my day job on a Homeless Team. Yes, really. 

Because I record on the fly, I get to studio with my makeup ready to go most days, other days the Virgin Media Makeup Gals help a sister out. Think of me as a Real Housewife of Fingal County. Because I already have a day in the office under my belt before I arrive, the products I use have to wear well, hold their own and look flawless on HG TV. In this series of posts 'Tellybox Beauty Breakdown' I'll show you exactly what I use, the great, the good and the Oh GOD save your money because, Lord knows, I'm not the only busy woman in the world. Helpful, right? 

I'll also include a link to the Elaine TV show in question, so that you'll get to see the actions shots, so to speak. Unfiltered, unfecked with, these links will show you the truth (And more often than not, me on a feminist rant on national television- FUN!) 

This week I used a brand new product from a Press drop, some holy grails and some old favourites. It was a good makeup day. Ready?!

Help with PMS, How I Cure Mine, Naturally!


PMS, premenstrual syndrome, hormotional times, mid month meltdown, red mist, whatever you call it, I've had it, since a staggeringly young age. I've been actively looking for a cure for PMS for most of my adult life, because, believe me, I suffer. If your time of the month, is preceded by  hormonal Chernobyl too, the natural supplement Maca just might help you too... And/or keep you out of prison.
