Oscars 2012

Did you watch the Oscars last night? I only watched the Red Carpet Live on E! Here are some of my favourite and my not so favourite dresses and make-up!

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Dress  

I have to admit sometimes I don't like or "get" Emma's style. This I thought this looked great on her,
Not sure about some people saying "Best Dressed" though! (I will get to mine in a minute) The shape is gorgeous and adding that bow does make it Oscar-ish but red on a red carpet?? Hmmm...

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

This kind of made me go "meh" its beautiful and she looks beautiful but she always does so it wasn't like Wow! She just looked like her!
Its like at the prom/debs in school, the girls who always look beautiful just look like they always do! Put this dress and make-up on some one we usually see as plain and it would be a wow moment but sorry Ang its a meh! from me.

Kristen Wiig

Okay so Kristen looks lovely but I think the women in purple behind her looks so beautiful, I dunno who she is but when I was watching this live both me and my sister Treena pointed her out as looking better then most on the night, so mystery girl you get the thumbs up from me!! 

Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera

Tina was the only one wearing Carolina Herrera on the night and I do love it, I think its a great pick for her! Strapless seemed to be a running theme and not a necklace in sight! Some of the dresses kind of needed a necklace but I think it would have made Tina's dress too fussy. 

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad.    
Love Jen in this! The long sleeves were also a trend on the night but the cut outs give it a sexy "showing some skin" look unlike Shailene Woodley, the girl from The Descendants who covered up head to toe (Which I think was a nice change others didn't)

Oh I also have to add I LOVE Jen's make-up!! Tutorial me thinks...

Viola Davis in Vera Wang  

I loved the colour on her, not too sure about the old cleavage on show maybe a bit too much! Other then that I loved the dress, the colour and the accessories. 

 Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani dress   
 I love love love this!! It kind of reminds me of the dress Demi Lovato wore at the 2011 ALMA. I would love to see this dress in a nude pink but blue is gorgeous too! If I was young again and going to my debs I would have wore some thing like this! (If The Moderne in Cork had some thing like it! lol) 
As for the hair and make-up well its my favourite on the night! LOVE! 

What are Your thoughts? 
Who did you love/Hate?
What make-up would you most like to see a tutorial on?

OOTD - Date Night!

Hi there ladies!

So if you follow my video you may have seen this outfit before or at least some thing similar, but I've never done a blog post about it so hey though I would!

I wore this to Google Offices in Dublin last years and a good few times because I love how wearable it is but still has a touch of style!

It was date night (of sorts) and we headed to Gino for dinner, I just wanted some thing casual really, I don't like "fuss" when it comes to outfits. 

So I started with Blank Jegging (New Look - Super Skinny)

I prefer Jegging (Jean leggings) rather then just Leggings because I don't have the most "toned" legs 
so the Jean material really hold the shape and mask any lump and bumps ;)

I added a black Tank (Penneys) under the Pink Shirt (Pennys) 

I tried white tank under the shirt but I think with the black leggings it works better.
As for the pink shirt I love it, I carry all my weight on my hips and butt so this loose shirt hides it.

My black wedges are from Dunnes (I wear these all the time)

You could wear full on black heels with this but I like wedges, easier and we took a walk after dinner so I am glad I picked them! 

For my jewellery I wore pearl earring and chain with my white watch that I always wear!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE pearls, I dunno why! I think they are kind of romantic and chic so I have lots of pairs in all different sizes (Just from Penneys like super cheap!)
The mid-length chain has a large pearl on the end which I got in Dunnes.  

I have a video on this look coming soon :)

Love Sineady xxx

So I am hope to do a OOTW (Outfit of the week) with an outfit to fit each day of the week.

Here is my causal Saturday/Sunday OOTD

I started by taking a Plain White Tank Top 

Straight Leg Jeans
(My sister's I dunno where she got them)

My hsamuel White Watch
and chain from Micheals (Cork)

Then I added a Checkered Grey/Purple Shirt over the top.

I rolled the sleeves up so make it looks causal and "lazy" :)

Only tied a few buttons in the middle to cinch in the waist.

If you want you could leave it open and the white top inside will
elongate the body making you appear taller and thinner.

With Hour Glass or Pears Shaped bodies (Like me) its better to "Cinch"

 Keeping with the layered look -

I wore a Purple Jacket -  which matched the shirt pattern

I rolled the sleeve back down and then rolled them over the jackets sleeves (I think it just bring the outfit together)

Purple Bag is from Dunnes as are the sunglasses
(and I know what you're think sunglasses really?? But it was actually really bright outside!)

   I have two shoe options,
   Black wedges 

  Sliver/Grey Flats
  (Also Dunnes)

  Its up to you which you like more,
  I love my wedges wear them ALMOST every day!!

Hope you liked it! Video to should be up later in the week anyways! :)

OOTD with

OOTD with my friend Sarah,
My friend came over and we did a tag video and though why not do an OOTD.

It was ice cold outside (we need some hot chocolate when we came in :p)
I just loved Sarah outfit!

(I'm on the left and Sarah is on the right BTW)

These shoes come in as platforms too.

I think Kim K has boots like these! 
Click the link to watch the video! 

For my outfit I layer a brown long sleeved v-neck top and a buttoned up cardigan of the same clothes. Then I add skinny navy pants all from Penneys. 
My sister picked this outfit out for me. I have three other tops to match up with the shoes and pants. 

I loved how Sarah took a black outfit and add the scared to bring the whole outfit together ALSO I love the boots! I couldn't believe they were from Penneys!

Hope you enjoyed our OOTD and tag video!

Top ELF Products!

I get asked so many times what my ELF faves are so here there are PLUS Links!

Studio Makeup Mist & Set

"Keep your makeup in place all day with a radiance boosting invisible hold"

It's like HAIR SPRAY for your FACE!!

I love this because its super cheap and it actually works!

"After you have applied your makeup spray a light mist 12-16 inches from your face with eyes closed to set your makeup in place or use for a quick touchup throughout the day to refresh your makeup. Let it dry naturally or blot with a tissue to help speed dry." 


Studio Cream Eyeshadow

"Line, shade and contour your eyes with this ultra pigmented and creaseless cream shadow"

I dunno about it being creaseless but man does this pack a punch when it comes to 
layering it with shadows! 

I own two light cream and medium brown and they pretty much work with every neutral look and I would recommend trying these two for starters, Bronze is my favourite!
(Like all cream shadows remember to replace the lid carefully to prevent them drying out)

€4.00 -

Flawless Finish Foundation

"Achieve a flawless complexion with the silky smooth e.l.f. Studio Flawless Finish Foundation."

The reason I love this foundation is because it suits my skin perfectly, It has a satin finish but doesn't work great on very dry flakey skin but on normal to slightly dry skin (like mine) that is pale yellow toned it's awesome!

Click here to see YT review!



 11 Piece Brush Collection                                               

 "The ultra luxe make-up brush case is ideal for any makeup artist at heart!"

My sister is a huge fan of these brushes - Case, Eyeshadow "C" Brush, Complexion Brush, Small Angled Brush, Small Smudge Brush, Fan Brush, Powder Brush, Angled Foundation Brush, Concealer Brush, Small Precision Brush, Blush Brush and Contouring Brush.

These brushes are baby soft and lovely to use!


High Definition Powder

"The high definition loose powder creates a "soft focus" effect to the skin."

Dupe for "MakeUpForEver HD High Definition Loose Powder" I tried both and found no difference at all!! 

Looks great on camera and in real life but just like the MakeUpForEver powder does not work with flash photography. 

Use a light hand and a large brush not the powder puff that comes with it. 

MINI Eyelash Curlers

"Create gorgeous curled lashes that appear larger and more defined with this sleek design"


Both the mini and the normal one works great and I feel like buying a million of them to last me a life time because I really adore them, I use them both every day!! 

I would love to know what your favourites are too so leave a comment,
                                                                                               Sineady xx
