Ireland’s newest beloved tanning brand Iconic Bronze are back with their latest game-changing product: Airbrush Body Bling, perfect for all those fun-filled nights out. Launched with the jaw-droppingly beautiful Aisling Quinn, once you try this product it will instantly become a mainstay of your bronzing routine. What makes it so good?
For starters it’s instant, meaning there’s no development time required; you’ll be a perfectly bronzed goddess within minutes should a surprise night on the tiles present itself. It also makes for a wonderful tanning top up if your Iconic Bronze Luxury Tan is beginning to fade. It’s transfer resistant and super quick drying; there’s no fear of staining your clothes here.
The unique airbrush formula is incredibly smooth and hydrating. What really sets this product head and shoulders above the rest is the stunning shimmering glow for a hint of glamour and the coverage provided by the tan itself. Smoothing over pores and imperfections, you’ll be left with glowing pins to die for. What’s more, the coveted HD Photo Finish will leave you feeling like a Hollywood siren all night long.
A beautiful fragrance is something rarely associated with a tanning product. For the most part, especially with developing tans, the biscuity scent is unavoidable. Not with Airbrush Body Bling. Boasting a unique fragrance that will no doubt become one of your favourite signature scents, the fresh oriental blend opens with citrus bursts of bergamot, lemon and mandarin spiced up with cardamom and ginger. The heart blooms to life with powdery orange blossom, bright sunflower and jasmine petals freshened up with new-mown hay. Splashes of juicy raspberry notes begin to appear in a floral cocktail of lily, ylang and geranium, all resting on a bed of powdery musks, vanilla, golden amber and peach skins. Divine.
This is an all over body product but Iconic Bronze Airbrush Body Bling can also be used to highlight specific areas on the body that you want to accentuate. Add a spritz down the front of your shins for the appearance of long legs or on your collar bones for a subtle sexy shimmer. A veil of Body Bling on your upper arms will create a slimming and toning effect.
For best results wear this golden glow with Iconic Bronze Luxury Tan. The essential innovative bronzing duo for the ultimate iconic Hollywood glow. The new Airbrush Body Bling is available in selected Penneys stores, RRP €10, and pharmacies nationwide, RRP €12/ £11, as well as online via IconicBronze.ie/shop
Look red hot this Valentines Day with the help of Nyx Professional Makeup! Whether it’s a rich and vibrant red or deep, sexy burgundy – make sure your lips are luscious this season! The key to achieving a sexy fuller lip this Valentine’s Day is by over lining the lip. Here are a few of our top tips and products you need in your make up bag this year: Gently exfoliate your lips to remove all dead skin, remember lipstick goes on a lot easier on smooth lips!
Use the Nyx Professional Makeup Wonder Pencil to line your lips to prevent bleeding or fading!!

Go over the desired outline in a smooth and durable liner like ‘Hot Red’ NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Lip Pencil, carefully start at the corners of your lips by drawing triangles to create the desired shape. If you want to go darker try the same Jumbo Pencil in ‘Deep Red’! (RRP @ €7)
Next begin to create a new outline just slightly outside the top and bottom lip. Repeat if you want to create a more dramatic defined look.

Go bright and red in the shade ‘Amsterdam’ or try ‘Monte Carlo’ for a darker pout. (RRP @ €8)
If the matte lip isn’t for you go for a more hydrating look like with Nyx Professional Makeup Butter Lipstick in the shades in ‘Juju’ or ‘Big Cherry’. The delicate texture of satin fused with the high color saturation creates an even finish on lips that's long-wearing and beautiful. (RRP @ €8)

BE You. BE Beautiful. #NyxProfessionalMakeup #NyxProfessionalMakeupIreland #NyxProfessionalMakeupIre
Welcome to 2018, I hope that Christmas and the New Year festivities were good to you. I had a lovely relaxing break with the family. I can't let the year go without naming my top ten beauty buys of 2017. It's always so hard to choose but the products I have chosen are ones that I always reach for. These are products no matter what year it is they will be staples in your beauty closet.
The best place for me to start with this list of products is to go straight to my number 1 product the one I use day in day out.
1. Tomitago Cleanser
This is an oil cleanser used to remove makeup and impurities. The main concept of this cleansing method is that the oil used to massage the skin will dissolve the oil that has already hardened with impurities and dirt which is stuck to the pores will adhere to the oil cleanser. Remember likes attract and opposites repel. Oil sticks to Oil and when removed the oil which had the impurities is removed.The oil cleanser is a completely revolutionary product. I have loved using this product since it arrived. In college we use the Dermalogica Pre Cleanse oil in our cleanse routine and this Tomitago has outdone this in all ways of life. How do I use it? First of all i pump some cleanser into my hands, rub lightly to warm it up and then massage into my face for 3-4 mins. I make sure to get all areas of my face including my eyes and this is amazing at removing eye makeup. Once I have worked it into the skin, I then use a facecloth which has been warmed in warm water and leave it sit on the face for a minute before gently removing the product from my face. It removes all traces of makeup, and any dirt which has adhered to my face. It really is a fantastic product.
2. Tantastic Tan
Tantastic Rapid Self Tan Spray has been specially developed to let you control your colour. This fast drying tan has been enriched with nourishing Aloe Vera which soothes & comforts the skin. Develops in 60 minutes, Fast drying, Enriched with Aloe Vera, Soothing & hydrating formula, Long-lasting formula. I love the ease of this tan. Before applying tan, always wax or shave the area you wish to tan at least one day before using. Always exfoliate the skin, paying particular attention to areas such as heel, elbows & knees. Apply with mitt and then allow to dry. This produces an amazing natural colour and everytime I wear this I am complimented on my tan.
3. Real Techniques Multitech Collection
This whole collection is one of my favourites from this year. It is a multi functional collection. If you love makeup brushes then this is the collection for you. The range goes from xs to xxl.
Point S Brush – which you could use for all-over shade, concealer, contour lines or highlighter
Point XS Brush – which you could use for colour correcting, concealer or crease shadow
Point XXS Brush – which you could use for detailed highlighting, detailed shadow or lip blending
Point XXXS Brush – which you could use for brow filling, smokey liner, smudged liner or lip detailing
Point L Brush - which you could use this for focused face application and blending
Point XL Brush - which you could use this for full face application and blending. Personally I’ve found this has been brilliant as a powder brush.
Point XXL Brush - would be fab for neck and body application and blending
4. Sleek Cleopatra's Kiss Palette
It’s made up of 2 creamy highlighting formulas and two shimmery highlighters. Inside the compact you also get a decent sized mirror and a cute little eyeshadow brush for precision and intensity.The product itself is nice. The highlighters are packed with high intensity shimmers and all have a warm glowy base. They are easily blendable with fingers but I personally preferred using a foundation brush. All the colours are very wearable and there is a shade to suit all, or do what I do and mix them lol. Amazing palette I couldn't be without it.
5. Scrub your body Mitt
Scrub Your Body is the ultimate gift you could give to your skin! By providing the ultimate in exfoliation the Scrub Your Body Mitt will: Remove stale tan and dead skin cells, Leave your skin feeling rejuvenated & fresh, Provide the smoothest possible skin for tan application. It covers so much area its great, and because your whole hand is in there you have much more control. With small soft circular motions my tan was all removed straight away without leaving my skin with any redness. ALL the tan and dead skin cells where removed almost instantly and left my skin feeling so soft. With my skin feeling so soft after showering it actually felt like the moisturiser I was using soaked straight into my skin. I've ALWAYS suffered with dry skin which is always a bit "dull like" in appearance.... well no more dull skin here!!! This Mitt is amazing. It made my skin look alive again but with no redness.
6. Beauty Pro Rejuvenating Collagen Mask with Green Tea.
A sheet mask is a cloth or paper saturated in skin-loving ingredients that’s left over your face for 10-15 minutes so your skin can absorb its fill of the good stuff. These are prepared with exactly the right amount of product for your skin. And your face can do nothing but soak up the goodness while it’s resting under the fabric. The other thing is, you’ll find you won’t need to rinse your face afterwards. Just work in the excess product that’s remaining on your skin with the tips of your fingers. The whole routine really couldn’t be easier. The mask I received and have reviewed is the Collagen Sheet Mask : REJUVENATING with Green Tea extract. Green tea is a wonderful ingredient. It is an anti oxidant, anti bacterial and it improves oily and dry conditions in the skin while it also works on any redness. Green tea also protects the skin against any further skin damage which leaves the skin soft supple and glowing after using the mask. The mask uses marine collagen to improve the skin tone and complexion. It also has an anti ageing effect on the skin. These types of masks are perfect to pop on an hour before a night out.
CATRICE BLUSH FLUSH BLUSHING MOUSSE - ORCHID, BLUSHED TANTATION, DUSTED ROSE Blushing Mousse RRP €4.50 The blush with a mousse texture has a beautiful matte finish. Its sponge applicator ensures an accurate application. To intensify the effect of powder textures, simply apply the mousse as a base.

The end with the slightly wavy, black bristles is espacially good for the smooth application of powder while the straight, light bristles perfectly blend creamy textures into the skin.
