This week was the annual NCAD Fashion Show, and we have to say, the stakes were high this year.
Showcasing Ireland's young talent in fashion, we look forward to this show every year and this year saw trends such as structured lines, blurred gender and gothic romance take to the cat walk.
We chatted to the winner, Aideen Gaynor about the inspiration behind her collection and the vision she saw for this day.
We also got the inside scoop from Brown Thomas' fashion director Shelly Corkery on what will be hot on the style scene this upcoming season.
Watch right here.
It’s always a little daunting trying out a new make-up look, especially before a big night out.
After all, you don’t want to be left frantically trying to wipe off that charcoal glittery eyeshadow while your taxi is waiting outside.
But there is nothing better than knowing you – and your eyes – look utterly divine. With that in mind we’ve teamed up with Sleek MakeUP to put together a Festive Smoky Eye tutorial that is oh-so easy to follow.
Using a mix of nudes, metallics and rustic browns, this dramatic eye look with have heads turning for all the right reasons. Panda eyes, be-gone.

A classic upstyle isn’t for everyone, but luckily there are many other options when it comes to Debs hair.
With the help of Kristin Ortiz from Kevin Murphy, we’ve put together a series of hair tutorials that are perfect for any special event.
This one, a loose tousled side plait, is a relaxed and edgy look that will definitely stand out from the crowd.
When you think of cocktails, a lot of flavours come to mind, but now there’s a new one to add to the list… and it’s a little unconventional.
Beer cocktails are taking the world of mixology by storm, and we headed along to the Peroni Nastro Azzuro Creative Evening at Dublin’s Candle Bar recently to find out more.
A dash of beer not only adds a gorgeous hoppy flavour to your drink, but it also gives carbonation and texture. The light aroma of Peroni works perfectly with tangy fruits like lemon, grapefruit and strawberry.
Mixologist Feredrico Riezzo whipped us up a selection of gorgeous drinks on the night, including the Peroni Spritz (featuring grapefruit juice, Aperol, and Prosecco) and the Peroni Strawberry Fields (with mint, lemon juice, strawberries and sugar).
As for an easy DIY beer cocktail, Federico recommends trying a twist on the classic shandy by adding apple juice and lemon juice to your Peroni. Yum!
Of course, creativity comes in many forms and also showing off their skills on the night were milliner Laura Kinsella and industrial design studio Designgoat.
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.

The third question we answered was how to make the most of your natural lashes for this festival season.
Watch the video tutorial now to find out how to achieve the super glamorous look.

With the sun shining outside and Halloween still weeks away, Christmas couldn't have been the furthest thing from our minds… until we stepped into the Christmas Market at Brown Thomas.
A dedicated Christmas area opened at Brown Thomas stores in Dublin, Cork and Limerick last week, catering to anyone planning ahead for the upcoming festive season, and S! TV headed along for a first look.
This year's Christmas range is divided into four themes – Ice Palace, Venetian Winter, I Love Candy and of course, Santa's Journey. With a huge selection of seasonal decorations, gifts and food on offer, there's no shortage of temptation.
Roll on December 25th…

It's just over three weeks until Xposé presenter Lisa Cannon ties the knot with her fiancé Richard Keatley in the beautiful Italian city of Florence.
From picking her dress to fitting in pre-wedding workouts, Lisa's been a busy bride-to-be over the last few months, but she's in no danger of crumbling under the pressure. "You do see the end picture and think, it's just a few more weeks," she says.
S! TV headed along to the Listerine Wear Your Smile event to catch up with Lisa… and find out how she's getting on planning a wedding away from home.
As part of a new S! TV series, we'll be finding out the answers to some of our viewers' most pressing beauty questions, with the help of make-up artist Stephan Ulvund Øien from IsaDora Global.

Just because you're trying to stay in shape doesn't mean you need to say goodbye tasty, filling food… at least that's Irish model's Rozanna Purcell's motto.
S! TV's Lisa Kavanagh headed along to the Clayton Hotel Vitality Breakfast in Ballsbridge recently, to try out some farmer's market style morning eats and to chat to foodie fanatic Roz.
The 24-year-old model, who has her own cooking and lifestyle booking coming out on pre-order later this year, whipped up some vibrant and refreshing Power Smoothies, and let us in on her diet secrets.
What does she eat every day? "Kind of everyday things, the food you would have grown up with," she explains.
"One thing I've learned through years of modelling, especially abroad, is that diets and fads go up and down and you go in and out of them just as quick. If you want to adapt to healthy lifestyle it's all about being sustainable."
For more clean eating secrets and Roz's Power Smoothie recipe, check out the video above.
We can never resist a bit of sparkle, so we were in heaven at the recent launch of Thomas Sabo's newest collection at the Marker Hotel in Dublin.
S! TV's Lisa Kavanagh was at the event to check out the new Love Bridge range, inspired by the worldwide tradition of lovers immortalising their feelings with an iron lock on a bridge. The new collection celebrates the deep connection between two people, and with instant engraving included in the price of every Love Bridge piece, you too can make a memory that'll last a lifetime.
We also caught up with special guest Rosanna Davison, who let us in on her favourite pieces from the new season collection, which also includes returning favourites like the Glam & Soul and Rebel At Heart lines.
Thomas Sabo is available at Arnotts, House of Fraser and premium jewellers nationwide.
Our very own Lisa Kavanagh went along to Brown Thomas CREATE 2015 which showcased the latest fashion from our very own home-grown designers.
As Irish designer Jill de Burca explained, “CREATE is an amazing opportunity for Irish designers to sell their products in amongst really well-known international brands and have an incredible platform and encouragement from Brown Thomas.”
Check out a few of the great new looks that were on display.
