Gone are the days of the classic dark, black smokey eye ladies. 

It's a new dawn, it's a new day (oh, the irony), and sunset eyes are what the world of makeup is about right now.

That's right, incorporating oranges, yellows and purples into your eyeshadow routine is a must… and it looks fantastic.

Thanks to the gorgeous ladies at Refinery 29, we have a simple step-by-step list on how to achieve this gorgeous look. 


Sunset is my favorite color. Rainbow is second. #BeautyLoveDynasty

"Using a fluffy blending brush, dust a matte rose shadow into your crease to define your eyes, and follow up with just a touch of dark purple shadow in your crease. Make sure to blend it to avoid harsh lines" they explain. 


. . . People "What are you thinking about?" . . . . Me "Star Wars" Product details in previous post

The next step explains how to achieve that fabulous, sunny glow: "Using a dense shadow brush, press matte orange shadow all over your lid and top it with a layer of sparkly gold shadow. Grab the matte rose colour you used in the beginning and sweep it along your lower lash line."

And finally, to finish off this sunset look, simply "draw matte burgundy eyeshadow along your upper and lower lash lines, winging it out slightly on your upper lash line."

BOOM: you've got yourself a beautiful sunset smokey eye. 



Another day, another unicorn related makeup product to get me overly excited. 

The latest addition in magical creature cosmetics comes to you from the wonderful humans at Violet Voss. 

The company specialise in wonderful glitters, that can be used as eyeshadow or hightlighter (or anywhere really…)

The pots of unicorn glitter cost €8.60 each, which is fairly reasonable in our opinion.

Remember ladies, unicorns are REAL.  


Nothing is more satisfying than seeing two of your favourite things coming together!

In this case, Sephora (makeup gods) have collaborated with Disney to create a beautiful Disney-inspired collection. 

Now, before I go any further, it is important to note that this is not a new collection… which means it is currently ON SALE (hence my excitement).

Anywho, the collaboration is made up of some of the loveliest makeup sets I have ever laid eyes on (still love you, Urban Decay).

The crown jewel of this masterpiece is definitely the eyeshadow palette, that comes in a GORGEOUS black and gold clutch-like bag.

The set contains 16 vibrant colours, all with individual names such as "Be My Bow" and "Miss Minnie".  

Did we mention that this makeup treat is on SALE?

That's right ladies, this gorgeous palette will set you back just €26, which is AMAZING. 

I've ordered mine already… no regrets. 


Kat Von D has become somewhat of a cosmetic queen in recent years, with many of her products gaining viral status.

Her latest creation is her best yet, and we CANNOT WAIT to get our hands on one. 

The Alchemist palette is a triangular treat that is a highlighting and transforming palette… which basically means that the shades can be used all over your face. 

The groovy case includes four holographic colours: Green Emerald, Blue Sapphire, Ultra-Violet Amethyst, and Pink Opal.

This amazing palette will be launching in December, and will be available to purchase Internationally on Sephora.com. 

The best part is that the palette won't break the bank, setting you back just €30.

PLUS, it is made with vegan products, so it is completely cruelty-free! 



Just incase you didn't know, I LOVE beauty trends, and usually the more outrageous they are the better.

HOWEVER, on occasion I find a trend that is perfect for almost everyone, and this is one of those occasions.

"Pink eye makeup" is trending on Instagram at the moment, and it is NOT what you think…

We warn you that while this look is fabulous when it's done right, you need to avoid looking like you actually have a case of pink eye (that is not a cute look).

In my own "expert" opinion, I suggest using more rose gold coloured shadows, rather than bright neon pinks (this is not the 1980s).

Dark raspberry colours look gorgeous on people with darker skin tones, while light blush pinks can look great on fairer people. 

Try it out, you won't be disappointed. 



These days it feels like we can’t open our laptops without coming across another must have beauty product.

And while you might think the good people at Urban Decay have already outdone themselves this year with the launches of their shimmering highlighter and Vice Ltd Reloaded palettes, we’re here to tell you that there’s still plenty of good stuff on the way.

Hot on the heels of the much raved about Naked Ultimate Basics collection, the celebrated beauty brand is about to launch an absolute rainbow of a palette which – while not being for the faint hearted – has our inner unicorns bucking with excitement.

The limited edition Full Spectrum palette features 21 colourful shadows – 18 of which are new – which range from the highly pigmented canary yellow ‘Calavera’ shade right down to a shimmery silver called ‘Iced’.


Sneak peek of what's to come…say hello to Full Spectrum —21 shades (18 are new!) from bold brights to matte white. #ColorUnleashed #UrbanDecay

Did we mention we're excited?



Every makeup fanatic knows the sadness that comes with smudging a brand new product for the first time.

But thankfully that shameful feeling could soon be confined to the past as the cosmetic gods have finally gifted us with magnetic eyeshadow.

MAC’s Spellbinder shadows have been magnetised to prevent eyeshadow fallout and will keep the pigments looking picture perfect in their pots no matter how many times you use them.

As demonstrated in the following clip, magnets beneath the product allow the shadow to simply be pushed back into its original wave shape after use so that it always retains its untouched look.

A spokesperson for the brand told The Huffington Post that the Spellbinder range will be available in the UK from December 1, but will only run for a limited period of eight weeks.

The shadows – which come in cobalt blue, cool teal, warm olive, vivid emerald, deep amethyst, rich chocolate, smoky quartz and metallic bronze shades – will go on sale in the US later this month.



We’re seriously big fans of Urban Decay around these parts.

From classic shades such a Gash, Acid Rain, and UV-B, to the more current range, it’s been an additively wonderful two decades of eyeshadow.

And now – hurrah! – a limited edition collection has been released to coincide with the anniversary.

The Vice Ltd Reloaded palette – the sequel of last year’s sell-out, hit Vice Ltd – is a great mix three new shades, five vintage shades, five exclusives from past palettes and seven bestsellers from the brand’s collection of singles.

Let’s face it too – Urban Decay is ALL about packaging. For this reboot, the iconic Vice Ltd case has been used, albeit this time drenched in black and topped it off with a purple jewelled UD icon.

Press the button to unveil the eye-candy inside, along with an oversized mirror and an double-ended brush.



The limited-edition UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded palette is priced at €49 and will be available exclusively from Debenhams or online at debenhams.ie from August 4, 2016.



Sure – the Urban Decay Naked palette is DIVINE! But, it's also a rather steep €47 a pop – which means it's largely consigned to Christmas/birthday present from your parents territory. 

Fear not, however.

Because we have now laid eyes on the Penneys version: same gorgeous neutral shades of purples and browns with a gentle shimmer (it especially looks like the Naked 3 version), same great packaging – but all for a fiver. 

Yup, €5. 

Clearly we're not the only that have been oh-so giddy with excitement, however: when the PS range palette arrived in stores recently it sold out pretty much immediately.

At least this morning we've been given some good news: we've been chatting to Penneys and they've confirmed that more stock IS LANDING very soon.


Sadly, they haven't been able to give us an exact date – but we will keep you posted.

And in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled in Penneys because the second batch is sure to prove every bit as popular as the first. 



When it comes to creating a buzz around new products, Urban Decay are the experts – indeed, their Naked Smoky palette had an 8,000-strong waiting list when it launched in Ireland earlier this year.

So it's no surprise that cosmetic junkies are already queuing up to try out Vice 4, a limited edition palette featuring 20 never-seen-before shades in deep hues of blue, green and pink.

As well as a range of new shades, the darkly gorgeous palette comes with a large mirror, a chic coordinating bag and a double-ended brush – perfect for blending and buffing the pigmented eyeshadow down to the correct colour.

Today, SHEmazing! was invited to an Urban Decay Master Class with make-up artist Danielle Roberts, who showed us her take on some Vice 4 looks – starting with this magenta-hued smoky eye.

Of course, every pro knows that great eye make-up is not just about the colours you choose – it's about how you apply it.

Before using any shadow, Danielle prepped the lids with Urban Decay's new primer, Minor Sin.

The serum-like liquid creates a base that will hold the shadow all night long with no nasty residue.

She then prepped her brush with a spritz of Urban Decay De-Slick Make-up Setting Spray – usually used to hold make-up in place – to give the shadow a foil-like finish when applied.

On-trend or what?

For the rest of the face, Danielle mixed De-Slick with Urban Decay's B6 Complexion Spray  and the green-tea enriched Naked Skin Foundation.

To create a softer contour-like effect on the cheekbones and temple, Danielle suggests using Naked Skin Concealer in a shade three tones lighter than your foundation.

Make-up this season is grungy and apologetic (less Blake Lively, more Kylie Jenner), and we reckon the Vice 4 palette is the perfect addition to your Christmas party cosmetic arsenal.



Now, we've come across a fair few weird make up trends over the past few years, but this one takes the crown.

The new trend comes straight from Milan Fashion Week is probably one of the most strange we've seen – especially on the catwalk. 

Models donned many a runway wearing bold lipstick on their lips… AND eyes. 

Missoni and Anthony Vaccarella models graced the catwalk with bold reds, blues and yellows covered across their eyelids and brows. 

Now we know Fashion Week is meant to determine what trends we will all be wearing next season – but we just can't dig this. 

Can you imagine walking into Coppers donning this trend?! Yep, didn't think so. 


We had Creative Director at BUFF Make-Up, Jessica Moulds in studio to show us how to achieve all the festival make-up looks you’ll need this year.

We asked our readers a series of questions about what they are interested in or what they find difficult and five main hurdles came up; which we will answer on S! TV.

The second question we answered was what colours are on trend for this festival season.

Watch the video tutorial now to find out how to nail the look.
