Our beauty blogger of the week is the beautiful Sinéad Kavanagh. Sinéad currently works in education so she describes herself as a "budding make-up artist with a work problem". You can see why we like her, right?
A self-confessed make-up and fashion addict, Sinéad decided to devote time to her passion when a health scare made her reevaluate certain aspects of her life. Thankfully, Sinéad has made a full recovery and is brightening up our weeks with make-up tips, video tutorials and product reviews in a down to earth, honest manner which we know you will all appreciate!
Including The Beautiful Truth in your round-up of beauty news and reviews is highly recommended, ladies.
What is your best budget beauty buy?
Without a shadow of a doubt, it would have to be the Wet n Wild Mega last lipsticks. These lipsticks pack a serious punch of colour, as well as being long lasting on the lips. They have a semi matte formula, but they still feel creamy on the lips. My favourite colours would be Spotlight Red, Bare It All and Mauve Outta Here. At €2.99 each, these lipsticks should be in everyone's makeup bag.
What is your top make-up tip?
Keep your eyebrows natural. I see far too many people with eyebrows that look like they have been applied with shoe polish. Eyebrows are there to frame and accentuate your face, not take over your face like to competing caterpillars. The Anastasia brow Wiz, is a fantastic eyebrow pencil for giving a defined, but natural brow.
Most girls have a much-loved lipstick – what's yours?
This is a hard question because I have so many lipsticks that I adore. I think it would have to be a throw up between Mac Ruby Woo and Smashbox Legendary. Both are blue toned reds, with Ruby Woo being a matte lipstick and Legendary being a really moist long lasting red. I think a red lipstick just makes everything look so much better.
What was your very first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
As a teenager, I wore Exclamation non stop. It was an awful sweet perfume that was a right of passage for many teenagers of my era. Now I have refined my taste in perfume a little bit and I am currently wearing YSL In Love again.
You're only allowed to use three make-up products for the rest of your life… what are they?
Oh God, the horror of having only 3 makeup products for the rest of my life! If I had to pick, it would be the Physicians formula 2 in 1 lash boosting eyeliner and serum. I actually can’t be without this liner, it is fantastic for creating the perfect winged liner. Second would be Make Up For Ever smoky extravagant mascara for creating super volumised and long lashes and finally it would have to be one of the above red lipsticks.
