Ramble, Ramble No. 1

I can see myself going alot of these posts in the future! HA!

YSL Lipstick in Lingerie Pink. LOVE it!

I am loving college at the moment. All the girls(and 1 boy) are really nice and friendly! The day flies by because Im enjoying the course so much! I get to practice makeup 3/4 days Im in. The rest of the time is concentrated on Theory and Portfolio Presentation.
I just ordered my Mac makeup Kit yesterday, there's so much stuff in it! Im going to do a separate post listing all the products ill be getting! :) The only thing Im not liking is the early starts! Getting up at 7ish is not agreeing with me :( We all do it I suppose!

I havent been blogging too much, partially because of college but also because of work. A few people left recently which means they are short staffed on certain days so I am getting more extra hours over the past few weeks. I only used to work saturdays but have started working sundays now too. Thinking of the money I can spend on clothes, makeup and drink gets me through it!

I am so broke this month, after paying for my Mac makeup Kit but I REALLY want the YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in both Lingerie Pink and Nude Beige. I swatched them when I was in town the other day. They are so creamy and are gorgeous colours! I didnt check the price though, which Im kinda scared to do! EEK!

BYE xx

I started my makeup course!

I dont start proper classes until tomorrow ( I have ever monday off ) but I am so excited. I was in for 2hours last week for an induction day and so far, so good!
The 3 tutors that I have have all worked in tv, film, and fashion and have loads experience. One of my tutors is one of the makeup artists on The Tudors!!
The course content is brilliant as it covers high fashion makeup, to special effects makeup, to theatre and media makeup to airbrushing etc. This is definately one of the main reasons I chose this, it covers all types of makeup which is useful!
On the first day they showed us a portfolio belonging to one of the girls who did the course the year before! It was HUGE! There was so much work put into it! They warned us that it wasnt going to be easy and I have a feeling they're right! To make a great portfolio, im going to have to put alot of time and effort into it which I am more than willing to do. I just cant wait to get started!
Some of the looks that are required for our portfolio are High fashion, ballet/dancer, oriental/geisha, a certain period eg. 1920's, old age, an animal, and a victim of violence!
Also, they gave us the list of the Mac makeup kit we will be recieving and I could not believe it! There are about 60 products including 6 foundations, 3 concealers, 8 brushes, 16 eyeshadows, 4 lipsticks, powders and lip and eye pencils etc. OOh can't wait to get it!!!
I also have to get a special effects kit which is cool too!

Ill keep updating how I am getting on and what Im learning! So excited!
Until then xxx

My Wish-List No. 1

Paul's Boutique Diamond Large Twister bag

Love this bag! So funky! Its on Asos, but its 80euro! I think its worth it! Its pretty big and I only ever use big bags!

Asos Stiletto ankle boots

I've wanted ankle boots for ages now but could never find the right pair. I LOVE these ones, I think they come in black too and have a splash of colour at the heel!

Mac Amber Lights Eyeshadow

I love bronze colours and this one is AMAZING!

Mac 109 Brush

I've been really into contouring lately. Im currently using a simple small blusher brush with no brand name that I found in my makeup collection but something tells me this brush would do a better job!

Hope you guys enjoyed xx

R.I.P Stephen Gately

Boyzone have always and will forever be my favourtie boyband of all time. I am absolutely devastated that Stephen Gately has died! He was my favourite member. When I think back to my younger years, Boyzone and Stephen Gately played a huge part, so I feel a part of my childhood is gone. R.I.P Stephen x

One minute your IN, the next you're OUT!!

Hey Girls!

So I still can't find my camera lead! AHH! Where is it!? I NEED to find it like asap!

Anyway here's my recent In's and Out's. Enjoy!

  • Lush Porridge Soap- I finally got to go to Lush when I went to town the other day! I LOVE THIS SOAP! I was planning on buying "Honey I washed the Kids" but I was so disappointed with it :( I was expecting the smell to be more intense I think, it just didnt smell great. Maybe I was just overwhelmed with the other smells happening in the shop!
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural-I promised myself that I wouldnt buy anything in MAC until I received my MAC Pro Card when I start college but I just couldnt help myself. Ive been wanting to try the Mineralize skinfinish for a while and it was so worth buying. It really sets my foundation and gives me a flawless finish! A definite Must-Have!
  • Gossip Girl- Best Show ever! It helps all the guys are super HOT! Ive had a lot of free time lately so decided to catch up on some episodes! I was half way through Season 2 when I was doing my exams in May and with being so busy I stopped watching it. But I've caught up now and can't wait to watch Season 3! Heard its not doing too well in the US tho :(

  • 15th October-Its taking so long for that date to come around. The day my Fashion, Theatre and Media Makeup Course starts! I have NOTHING to do until then coz i only work weekends! I just cant wait to get a routine back in my life!
  • X-Factor-I love this show, I do, BUT I am not really liking the people that have been put through! In particular, the guy with the afro, Jamie Archer i think it is, and the bi-sexual teacher Daryl something. Cheesy and all they do is cry!!
  • Camera Lead-Its seriously just vanished! I know its somewhere in the house, I just do not know where! I am literally guna spend ALL DAY tomorrow looking for it! Such an effort!

I love reading other blogger's IN'S and OUT'S so I like doing my own! :) xx
