We got chatting to Sinéad about some of her beauty secrets – read on!
1. What is your best budget beauty buy?
For me it would have to be ANY Catrice product. A very broad answer I know but their foundation is something I swear by and I am in love with their mascaras! The brand is affordable, great quality and perfect for young girls starting out a make-up collection as well as a favourite among those with a wide collection of high brand make up.
2. What is your top make-up tip?
It's a fairly boring answer and quite obvious: give your face a break from make up a few times a week. If that only means taking your make-up off several hours before going to bed every day, then let that be it, your skin needs a chance to breathe. Oh and water, drink ALL OF THE WATER!
3. Most girls have a much loved lipstick – what's yours?
Any of the Kate Moss Rimmel lipsticks. 01 and 107 are my all time favourites.
4. What was your first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
Lacoste Pink was my first perfume if I remember correctly. Living in a house full of girls means there are no shortage of perfumes, but recently I have been taking to wearing the Paris brand from River Island, at just €17 a bottle it's a perfect everyday scent. For on-the-go, a roll-on version is perfect to pop in your hand bag at just €5.
5. You're only allowed to use three make-up products for the rest of your life – what are they?
A Catrice Eyebrow pencil – without one I would be expressionless as my eyebrows are extremely light. Secondly, Catrice Glamour Doll mascara which is hands down the best mascara I have used in a VERY long time. The last would be Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. I had a love-hate relationship with this foundation for a very long time but I have grown to love it as it has great coverage and contains an SPF.
Some great recommendations there!
