We are ready to go hard on makeup

Is there anything better than doing your hair and makeup for a night out? I think not except maybe your skincare for the sofa with a Chinese takeout and SATC reruns but that is for another day.

Now that restrictions have been lifted, we are ready to go hard on the makeup and fragrance are we not? Tanning Thursdays are officially reinstated and hair masks are stepping up a notch! There are events and weddings all back on the cards and while I never lost my love of products, a special occasion makes it all worthwhile.

Seoulista Curly Locks (RRP €12) is a hair treatment mask designed to strengthen, hydrate, and condition curly hair in just 15 minutes. Packed full of hardworking ingredients, Seoulista Curly Locks is infused with 35ml of intensive serum and contains protoplex, a concentrated complex of nourishing proteins which helps to revive damaged curls by strengthening the curl structure for more defined curls that maintain their natural shape.

Seoulista Blondi Locks (RRP €12) is a treatment hair mask designed to strengthen, condition, and illuminate blonde hair, while caring for the scalp, all in just 15 minutes. The mask is infused with 35ml of intensive serum and contains Illumoplex, a unique complex of shine-enhancing activities. This concentrated blend of antioxidants works to refresh and illuminate blonde hair. Nobody likes a palette with three or four defunct colours which is why I adore the functionality of the Kevyn Aucoin Something Nude Eyeshadow Palette (€52) from lookfantastic.ie. Create a perfect, subtle yet glamorous party look. Use the lighter matte shades for your office chic. The 12 nude shades are designed to bring endless versatility to eye makeup. With both warm and cool shades, made to flatter all skin tones and eye colours while the blendable formulas feature a mixture of matte and shimmery finishes, ideal for both a natural look and an understated glamour. It really is a hardworking and easy to use addition.

Say hello to volumised, defined looking lashes instantly—and soft, cared-for lashes even after removal with It Cosmetics Hello Lashes+ (€26.50) Featuring a lash care serum with biotin, argan oil and jojoba oil, your smudge resistant mascara delivers fuller-looking lashes with its 360° lash wrapping brush. Tested under ophthalmologist control, this mascara’s gentle removal helps minimise lash loss.
