What I Got Up To Yesterday

The Irish Beauty Show

So as most of you already know, yesterday I attended the Irish Beauty Show with two of my friends. Believe it or not this was actually my first time attending the show. So as you can imagine I was so excited to go up and have a look around. The ultimate girls day out.  

The show lasts for two days (Sunday the 13th of March & Monday the 14th) with some of the most recognised names in the beauty industry. The day is full of inspiring demos and seminar stages where you get the chance to interact and learn more about makeup, hair, tanning and nails etc. Another benefit of attending the show is how much you save on products with over 350 brands offering different promo's, discounts and offers. 

So here's what I got up to for the day.. 

What I Wore

Top - Pennys 
Trousers - Missguided (last year)
Fringe Sandals - Forever 21 

I didn't have the time to go shopping for an outfit to wear so instead I rooted through my wardrobe to see what I could put together. I opted for something comfortable as I knew the day would involve a lot of walking and standing around. 

A lot of you asked me where I got my trousers as soon as I posted the picture. Unfortunately I actually bought these off Missguided last year, but they do have some similar styles here (Missguided Link).  So anyway, I took a quick outfit picture and headed off to meet the girls. 

Meeting Familiar Faces

I was delighted to finally meet Marissa Carter, Faces by Grace and James Patrice!! Sure of course I had to ask for some photos. I don't have a photo with James Patrice as he kindly did one of his famous videos on my snapchat for you all. The man is hilarious.

Snapchat Names...

Marissa Carter: cartermarissa
Grace Mongey: facesbygrace23
James Butler: jamespatrice
Myself: itsaclothing

There were plenty more familiar faces throughout the day, but most of them were taking part in demos or selling products. 

My Purchases

So the first thing I picked up was the SoSu Contour Palette!! 

I didn't think the palettes were going to be on sale at the stand yesterday, as I thought Suzanne had mentioned they were low on stock in previous snaps. As soon as I realised they were actually for sale I just had to get one. When it comes to my makeup I am obsessed with a good foundation and contour base. Plus my current contour palette was running low. 

My second purchase was these two Blank Canvas Brushes. I picked up the F20 and F21 to help apply my new SoSu Contour Palette & my everyday Foundation. The brushes feel so soft and I thought the pink and green handles were cute.

Some Food and Browsing

After the Beauty Show we headed over to the Dundrum Shopping Center to grab a bite to eat. We were so hungry, and of course we couldn't resist Eddie Rockets. 

On our way back to the car we found ourselves wondering into shops for a 'quick look'. Topshop, Pennys, Zara etc. One piece in particular caught my eye, I stumbled across this blazer dress in Zara and fell in love with it!! The picture is not great as there is a top underneath, but you get the idea.

So that was what I got up to yesterday. 

To those of you heading up to the show today, enjoy!! If you have any questions about the Irish Beauty Show message me or comment below.
