Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - BEAUTY -

“I have all the makeup I could ever pos­si­bly need,” said no beauty junkie ever! Ha ha! I just love, love, love make-up, and I know I could stop buy­ing it, but, you know what, ladies? I’m not a quit­ter!

Right now, I’m in The Love with Lov, a new cos­met­ics brand that has the qual­ity and de­sign of a pre­mium brand, but at a pock­et­friendly price.

There’s so much in the range to tell you about, but, re­ally, what I’ve been us­ing most is this Un­ex­pected Eye Shadow Matte in No 100 Black Orchid, be­low, €6.95.

Now, I know it looks a lit­tle choco­latey, but when you ap­ply it, it has a kind of red­dish tone that re­ally makes my eyes pop! No myx­o­mato­sis here — as long as you don’t overdo the ap­pli­ca­tion.

Blend­ably soft with a lot of pig­ment and min­i­mal fall­out, I pop a lit­tle in the crease and outer cor­ner of my eyes, and blend it out with a bit of black eye­shadow. It’s a kinda ‘Kris­ten Ste­wart at this year’s Cannes Film Fes­ti­val’ type of look.
