Fall Mak-up Look 2013

Hey guys. This has been my first ever Fall make up look that I have tried and have been rocking for a few days now. I don't know it's very festive and I love it. Its not like me to be wearing orange eye shadows but I have to say that I really like this look. :)

For this look I have used my Blank Canvas Cosmetics 88 Matt palette. I love this palette its the best thing that I have purchased in a long time.

  •  I used a light brown just above my crease so that all the other shadows will blend much better. 
  • In the crease I used a medium brown to define my crease and blended it to make it very soft and barley there.
  • On the lid I used an orange and packed it on to make it as vibrate as possible.
  • In the outer 'v' I used a dark brown to define it more, also blend as you go.
  • For the liner I used my Collection liner pencil to soften the look and blended it out.
  • For a hightlight I used a light peach shade 

  • For foundation I used Rimmel Perfaction in Ivory
  • Then I just contoured my face with some bronzer I didn't apply any blush
  • Applied some hightligher on my cheek bones
  • For my lips I used a nude lipstick by Rimmel Birthday Suite (not in stock any more) and a bit of lipgloss also by Rimmel called Lick Your Lips. (not in stock anymore)

Thanks so much for taken the time to read my blog

First Imprssions: Collection Supper Size Mascara

Hey guys, so I know I haven't wrote anything on my blog for so long, but I just didn't have the time.  Today I come to you with my latest video that I just uploaded on my channel. I did a first impressions on the Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara and I got a lot of views ( for my channel it was a lot of views) so I thought I'd do an other one. This mascara isn't new I don't think its my first time every buying anything by Collection or Collection2000 as it was known as before it changed.

What attracted me to this mascara is the packaging and that its a thin tube. So the brush would be think too. I didn't write a review of the Rimmel Mascara but if you would like to see my first impressions of that video click here. When I opened this mascara the brush is slim and a very traditional brush. Not much product come on the brush which I thought would be a good thing, but in fact its not that great. I had to apply like 3 to 4 coats of this mascara before it looked anyway decent.

hope you all enjoy it, love you all

Blank Canvas Cosmetics 88 Matt Palette Review

Hey everyone, so I wanted something from Blank Canvas for some time now but was always putting it off and about a month ago I decided that it was time to get a palette. The main reason for getting the palette was that I wanted to do a tutorial for the 4th of July but it didn't come in time. The day after it came I was going away camping in Killarney for 2 weeks.

Blank Canvas is an Irish online cosmetics company. They sell  all sorts of palettes, brushes. The only thing that they don't have is foundation, you never know they might come out with that in the near future. All their products are reasonably priced. This 88 palette that I purchased cost me €23. The PP starts from €4.99. The bigger the palette the more the PP, you I wouldn't mind that as much I don't know about you. They also provide excellent brushes, I got the small socket complementary with my order. I love it.

The palette is just amazing. I always heard good things about Blank Canvas but I didn't think they it would be as good as this. All the shades are just fab. They are really pigmented, they have very little fall out. The texture of these shadows are very creamy and soft and not chalky at all. 

As you can see these are amazing quality shadows and I am really happy that I purchased this palette. All the shadows are matt so this might not be for everyone, but I think that everyone should own a matt palette and for this price you can't go wrong. I didn't swatch all the colors as they are a lot of them. Some shades didn't come out too bring on my hand but I did get a bit of a color in the last few weeks so my hand is much darker. That last shade (blue) is just fab. I can't believe how bright it is. I did a video on this too if you would like to watch it here.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and I'll talk to you later xx

Update on YouTube!

Hey guys. I haven't been posting anything and I'll tell you why. My computer is nearly gone dead the hard drive is on its last legs. I was trying to get a new computer but I have to save for an other while. Anyway on to something more fun. I have a new uploading schedule on my YouTube Christina Curtin.

Make up Mondays: Where I am going to upload anything to do with make up. That could be anything to do with tutorials, reviews hauls or what ever you guys may ask me to do.

Tag Tuesdays: This is not going to be every week but when ever there is a good tag going around I will do it on a Tuesday. If you have any suggestions I will always take them aboard.

Fun Friday: I was thinking of doing Vlogs, or anything that fun, like coloring my hair, Oufit of the days.

I would love to hear from you.


Sunday, 19 May 2013

Hi everyone, happy Sunday. I hope that you are keep well. The other day Rhys had got hold of my makeup and he rooted out my MUA Glitter Ball palette. I decided to play around with it as I didn't touch it since I got about a year ago. When I got it first I didn't think much of it. As I thought the shadows were very dusty and not very good quality but then again it less then a fiver.

That's the reason I didn't use it any more. But the other day one of my brushes was on the damp side so. This was the perfect opportunity to try this palette wet. Now why I didn't use it wet in the first few weeks don't ask me. 

All these swatches are with a damp brush. I was very surprised on how pigmented all the shadows are and how long wearing they are too.  I used this palette yesterday for a communion that I was invited to. This is the look that I came up with it.

I used the third last shade on the bottom row and in the crease I used naked from the Naked palette. I like to use a matte shadow in the crease so that my eye will not be too shimmery. Then on my top lash line I use creek again from the Naked palette, if you don't have the naked palette you can use any matte light brown on your crease. The black from this MUA palette is good too for the liner part. Then I just smudged it to make it more smokey. I thought it was very nice look. Anyway back to the review. In over all

  • Good quality
  • Use it wet to get best results
  • Cheap and cheerful
  • A bit of fall out but not much
  • Good range of shades

Thanks all for reading my blog. I love you all

MUA Concealer Review

Hey everyone. I hope that your weekend has been much more fun then mine. I stood wrongly on my ankle yesterday and I can't really walk properly. Anyway enough about me lets get started on this review. I bought this concealer. This is my first ever liquid concealer. The shade that I have is 'fair' I got it so that I could use it under  my eye area as a highlight. To be quite honest with you I don't have much to conceal so that's why I like it for a highlight. I have to say it great to conceal my dark circles the small bit that I have. Because its the lightest shade in the store I thought that it wouldn't be great to cover my red chin that I sometimes get, but it does a great job at that too, if you to use it on your red patches on your face, you would have to powder it with a powder that has a bit of color to it so that it wouldn't be so light. I hope you know what I mean, I am not that good sometimes to explain things. I really like it. The consistency isn't too liquidy and it not too think either which I really like. As I always use it under my eyes it doesn't crease which is an other bonus, but I do always powder it too.  The MUA Cover and Conceal is my favorite concealer and for the price of it I love it. Its less the two euro.

I have to say this is the BEST conceal ever. I will try the Collection 2000 and I will have to compare them two together. 

I hope that you found this helpful.

Nail Art For Beginners #2

Hey lovely readers. Today I come to you with an other nail art for beginners. As you may know by now I love nail art that very easy to do. The reason for that is I have a son that just runs around now and its very hard to do my nails. Waiting for them to dry and all that stuff, so I normally do my nails during the night when I get a few minutes to myself. The other day I came up with this. Its very easy to do and you don't need a lot of tools to achieve this nail art. I used a silver stipper but if you don't have one you can always use a toothpick dipped into glitter polish.

First off I cleaned my nails, took off the old nail polish and cut my nails. As I tend to bite them when they get a bit long. Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails from going yellow.

For my base color I chose this Avon in 'Coral Reef' you can choose whatever color you feel like at the time. This is my fist time using the color since I got it and I love it. The color is so beautiful, and is very opaque too.

With a glitter stripper or a different color stripper mark a center point at the tip of your nail. Then imagine where your half moon of your nail would be and connect it down to the center of the dot that you placed to make a triangle shape. Then carefully fill in the triangle and then your done. Do with will all the nails. For your ring finger you can turn the triangle shape up side down to make it look more interesting. 

Apply to topcoat and your done. I hope that you have enjoyed this nail art. I know its so simple and your like 'this is way to simple but if your starting off with strippers this is the best way to practice. Practice makes perfect. Thank you for reading my blog and Ill see you all the next one.

Lots of Love

BarryM nail polish review and swatches!

Hello my lovely ladies. About two weeks ago I got a few BarryM nail polishes and I was really excited to used them. The excitement got overwhelming so I had to take off the nail polish that I had on and apply these two great shades. I love this two shades, they are so amazing.

This is the Glitter one. One coat. I wanted to show you guys how it looks with one, two coasts and so on, just to see how much glitter comes off at the first coat. Its pretty good now I have to say. (sorry its a kinda poor photo)

The middle finger had two coats and I thought it was pretty load of glitter just for the two coats. I would be pretty happy with the two coats.

The glitter polish all have three coats of polish on now and came out really good. To be honest I didn't really see the difference between the second and the third coats. My ring finger has the 'Blueberry nail polish. As you can see that its pretty pigmented and that is one one coat. I didn't put on the second coat and it didn't need it. I am so in love with this Blueberry nail polish.  I will definantly be getting more of BarryM nail polish more, and I can see how everyone who love this brand. The formula is really nice too, as the polish goes on very smooth with no problems. I hope you all enjoy this post.

Lots of Love

BarryM Polishes

Hello to all my lovely readers, yesterday I went to town just to look around and to get Rhys out of the house for a few hours. (it was a lovely lovely day). For some reason I always go into Sally's but never buy anything. I really don't know what's wrong with me. For a while now I am on the hunt for nice glitter nail polish. I have seen so many nail designs that have glitter and to honest I am a little afraid of glitter but still really want one or two in my collection.  While I was in Sally's I picked up 'Fairy Dust' by China Glaze. Its a really fine glitter, and I am in love with it, but again I didn't get it. I think I want to try out something glitter nail polish's that are not that expensive so then if I like it I will go and get Fairy Dust. In the idea of getting a cheaper polish I headed down to Boots. The fist place that I always look in BarryM. I have heard a lot of good things about BarryM. I was looking and looking and then I just left them there why don't ask me but I went up to Superdrug just to see was the price any different. To my surprise, Superdrug's are cheaper by a euro. While it was a whole euro cheaper why not right, so I got some, there was an offer 3 for 2 so I got three.

This is the one that I picked up first. Its called Aqua Glitter. Its a fabulose green/teal glitter. Oh my I am in love. 

This is called Blueberry (something) (306). Its a really light blue. A really spring color. Also I am in love. The  last one that I got was also a glitter one. but when I got home my son decided that I didn't need it and smashed it off the floor. It was clear glitter different sizes too. I really liked that polish. It just wasn't to be. But I'll get it again. I'll have swatches very soon. 

Hope you  enjoyed

Lots of Love Christina xx

Nail Art For Beginners

Good morning to all my lovely readers. As I was sitting down last time watching some Criminal Minds I noticed that my nails were getting chipped and not nice, so its time for a new nail art. I was thinking of what I can do without it being to complicated as I don't like sitting down doing nail art for hours, and then waiting for all the nail polish to dry. I have done this design before but it didn't turn out as good this time. I think its because I took my time this time and I knew what I did wrong the first round. I also watched a good few videos on YouTube just to get a few more ideas on how to achieve this nail art perfect. My favorite YouTuber that does nail art on YouTube in CutePolish. I don't know if you have heard of her if not here is a link to her channel. Anyway lets get on with my nail art for beginners. Fist off this nail art looks hard but it really isn't and you don't have to be too careful with it.

These are the colors that I chose, you can use what ever color you fancy. I like to use the browns I think it just looks absolutely fabulous. (sorry I didn't know the pic would go sideways and I can't get in upright). The little tool that I use is the Avon's decorating tool, I think that's what it's called. The fist time I did this nail art I used a tooth pick and I thought it was kinda awkward. 

First apply a nude polish or a light pink. I am using Avon's Sweet Pea Dreamer. If you don't have that you can also use Essence Nude Glam in Cookies and Cream. This Avon nail polish had s gold tint to it and it really looks lovely in the end result. 

With a dark brown or a medium brown dot a three to four on each nail. If you have longer nails you can apply a few more. Since I have pretty short nails it doesn't work to have to many. Also I wouldn't apply any more them four as you will be out lining the brown spots and if you have to many brown spots it can be very messy when your trying to outline them. That is the mistake that I made when I did this nail art first time round. As you can see you don't have to have a really steady hand with this. As it all comes together in the end.

 With a tooth pick or a dotting tool outline the brown spots making some 'c' like. On the bare places but a few black spots so that it looks more natural and like a real animal would have. Again you don't have to be so perfect doing this as it looks more natural. Make sure all the nail polish is dry and them apply a topcoat, to smooth any imperfections and add a beautiful shine to your manicure.  

I hope that you have enjoyed this nail art design, I know that many people have this done already, but its great nail design to try if you haven't done so already. Thank you for stopping by. 

Lots of Love Christina x

Hi Girls. I thought I'd share what my make up was yesterday. I was going to the town with my son so I like to look nice. For my foundation I use two at the moment. Rimmel Match Perfector in ivory all over my face and under my eye I use Avon Ideal Flawless in light pink.

I use the light pink under my eyes because its lifts my under eye area. I love this foundation. I would also would like to say that Avon has pulled out from Ireland last week with out any notice. Its a sad day when I found out. For my cheeks I use my Saphora palette which has lots of blush's and Bronzer  The blush that I used was a light peachy shade.

I love Stage eye shadow base is my favorite, its better then the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I always use it. On my eyes I wore the light peach shade, it's much better when it wet. In the crease I applied the orange shade just to worm up the look at small bit. In the outer corner of my eye I applied the dark brown shade, just very very lightly as its very very pigmented.

For my brow high light I use "Virgin" from the Naked palette. Also I used "Skin" in the middle of my eyelid to lighted it up a small bit. I really make use of the Naked Palette as I use 'Virgin' as my cheek bone highlight too. It look so nice and gentle on your skin. For my mascara I am still trying out this MUA volume mascara, Its waterproof and I still don't really know what to make of it. I didn't use any other mascara as I wanted to see how it works on its own. 

I didn't use this lipstick in such a long time so it was time to use it. First I out lined my lips with a lip liner from Avon Glimmerstick in Pink Beuques and filled my lips with it too. On top I applied Rimmel Drop of Sherry. Its a lovely pink/wine color and I love it. 

Thanks all my make up hope you all enjoyed. 

Lots of love Christina x

Avon Lady has called!

Hi lovely ladies. Before I tell you what I got from Avon, I would like to start by telling you that I was an Avon Rep for while. I loved it every min of it but the only thing it was very hard to sell. So many people would take the brochure but they wouldn't order. Then other people was like get so many products and they would just look at them and just return half of them. Which is so annoying like. I always looked looking through the brochures and wishing that I had loads of money so that I can get all of the brochure. Ok I won't bore you any more and I'll just tell you what I got. The first thing that I got was the Ideal Flawless foundation in light pink.

Light pink you may say well I have ivory and its about half a shade darker then my skin tone, and light pink is about a half shade lighter then my skin tone, so I like to mix the two and get the right tone for me. This foundation is but its not to watery like my Rimmel Match Perfetor. Its on the thick side but not too thick. Its full coverage and I love it. Its normally 15.50 but as Avon do lots of deals in every brochure. So I wait till the foundation is on offer. Sometimes its two for 15.50 other time is 9 euro, and that's what I got it for. It also has SPF 15 which I love having SPF in my foundation.

I love Avon's nail polishes. They have a great color range and great formulas too. The two that I got this time round is (L-R) coral reef and sweet pea dream. Coral reef is a coral pink shade. Really nice for spring. Sweet Pea Dream is a really nude with a gold shimmer. Its really nice and great for them people that don't like wearing color on their nails. This polish is also great for the office and school. I have a new favorite nude polish.

This is thing is what I have been looking for ages is a art tool. One side is a detailed brush and the other side is a small doting tool. Its great that is two things all in one. I love how small this is and you can pop it in your bad and take it any where with you, if your going on holidays. This is all of my little goodies. 

Love Christian xx

MUA Mega Volume Mascara!

Hey everyone. So I was looking around for a new mascara as the mascara that I am using at the moment is hurting my eyes, I think that's a sign that it's gone off. To be honest I do have it for a long time and its a great mascara, its the Rimmel Accelerator mascara the old one. ( Don't have the new one yet). As I was in Superdrug the other day I spotted MUA's Mega Volume Mascara. I am really impressed with the price as it's only 3.75. This is my first impressions of this mascara.

 As I opened it, the brush is plastic medium bristles. The brush it's self is quite big, which I am not a huge fan off. The formula is dry as there is not that much product on the brush. I don't like mascaras that are too dry or to wet, I like them to be just in the middle. I find that its hard to get a mascara that is just right.

 When I started to apply it, I found it hard to get all my lashes on to the brush as its so big, and I pocked my eye with it as I am not used to using such a big brush. The fist coat was absolutely terrible. It looked like I didn't even have any mascara on atal atal. I gave it about 30 seconds as applied an other coat to see would be it better. It was an improvement but not that much. I have to say I had to go and apply my accelerator. Its not as black as I like my mascaras.

Its says Mega Volume, it delivers non of that. I didn't get any volume from this mascara. All I got was nicely separated lashes that were hardly seen. Its only that bad with an other mascara over it, but if your thinking of buying this and just using on its own, I would leave it and try something else. I like to use one mascara and not two or three, its just to much effort to be honest. I will not be repurchasing this product again. All in one you are really paying for the price, its a low price and a low quality product.

Thank you  guys for taking the time for stopping my. Lots of love

Avon's Color Trend Power shadow in Blue Pop

Hey everyone. I got this eye shadow a good few months ago, but I wasn't sure how to use it properly. I had to play around with it and see whats the best way to use it. This is a newish product it only came out about 6 months ago. I did my eye make up this morning because I was making a video and I always like to have something different on my eye, just to change it up around.

This is a loose power and its a lovely rich blue color. This shadow come is dark gray, and I think green. They are really fun shadows to play around with. They are now your every day kinda color, but its really nice to have in your collection.

For this eye shadow to stick on your eye lid and not for it to move all day. You need a good base and a cream shadow or a pencil so that it has something to stick to. I used my Rimmel 'Jungle Green' eyeliner. This also helped the blue even more vibrant and stand out even more. You can also use the eye shadow wet. Simply wet your brush not to much though, then dab into the pot.

 If you try this pigment dry it has a lot of fall out. Its very easy to wipe away or just dust away with an other big brush. I love love this product and I will defiantly will be using it more often. I have green eyes so it make my eyes to stand out too. This shadow will last me for a long time as you only need a very small amount of this, and it comes out so vibrant. The color pay off is awesome!

Hope you all enjoy this post!

Cutex Nail Polish Remover

Hello to all of my new readers. I am so excited this is my first official blog post. I didn't know what to blog about for my first post and I thought about it for ages, and then I thought it should be something that I have been really enjoying using. I love love paining my nails but I have always hated taken my polish off. It was a nightmare for me. I got the Cutex Strengthening nail polish remover just the other day. I didn't purchase this product for a very long time as I remember it wasn't that good. But I have to say my opinion has been changed, and I am in love with Cutex nail polish remover. I have tried so many nail polish removers and non of them have been as good as Cutex.

I bought it in Boots for just 2.60 and I thought it was good value for the 200ml. I nearly didn't pick it up but just to give it an other try. I am really happy that I did. It was no effort at all to remove the polish that I had on. With in a 5 seconds my nail polish was off my nail. I have to say it was very surprising how quick it removed the nail polish. The top coat that I use is Avons's mineral fix and its a very very think formula.  Something on to the gel top coats you can purchase, and let me tell you that its really hard to get that stuff of your nails. It was no problem for Cutex though. I can't say enough good things about this product. I will be repurchasing this nail polish remover for sure. I will never be getting anything else. I have not tried it when I had nail art done. But I'm sure it will take off the layered nail polish. It has to be tried out.

Hope you all have enjoyed this post. Enjoy your day!
 Lots of love Christina
