Our pick for top beauty blogger this week is the lovely Niamh Fitzsimons from LoveThis.ie. Self-proclaimed internet addict Niamh was born in Ireland but is currently living in Australia. Her blog originally started out as LovePR.ie and was a place to document her favourite marketing campaigns and PR stunts, but it has since blossomed into an amazing cross-continental beauty site!
We caught up with Niamh to find out her beauty secrets…
1. What is your best budget beauty buy?
My best budget beauty buy would have to be Essence lip liner pencils! They're so pigmented and really easy to use as they just glide on. Cheaper than chips too at less than a couple of euro.
2. What is your top make-up tip?
Blend, blend, blend. I cannot overestimate the importance of blending. Whether its blending your foundation into your neck so you don't have a tidal mark or blending your eyeshadow, it's just so important for a finished look.
3. Most girls have much-loved lipstick – what's yours?
Oooh this is a hard one. I really love two – MAC's Ruby and L'Oreal's Caresse in Nude Ingenue.
4. What was your very first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
My very first perfume ever was Davidoff Cool Water which still reminds me of when I was about 13 and hanging out all summer long on the beach doing absolutely nothing with my friends. I'm going through phases of wearing Burberry and See by Chloe.
5. You're only allowed to use three make-up products for the rest of your life – what are they?
Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation so I always have dewy-looking skin, Prestige Cosmetics Sun Baked Mineral Bronzer so I can have a nice golden glow and Maybellines' Define a Lash Lengthening Mascara.
