Just a quick little blog post about my birthday makeup from last weekend. Last Saturday I turned 20 which was scary at first because I realised l’m a year away from actually having to be an adult and act responsible lol but now I’ve kind of settled into this fact of no longer being a teenager.
For my birthday I headed home to Wexford from Maynooth with my boyfriend and had such a lovely weekend spent at home with my friends and family. With work and college I rarely get to see my friends and family anymore so it was great catching up with everyone.
In the midst of planning my birthday I had to worry about how I’d have time to do my makeup as I knew I would be in a rush all day getting everything prepared for my birthday dinner. Luckily Roisin Leacy from Airbase Ireland saved the day by getting in contact with me to offer me a makeup application from one of her head makeup artists. I was delighted about this offer because it would mean i would no longer have to worry about my birthday makeup and I have always wanted to try out airbase makeup as I’ve heard so many good things about it.
My makeup was applied by Shay Wakerley(@shaywakerley) and it only took 45 minutes which was perfect. She used many products I have never used before such as Airbase makeup using an airbrush applicator. The airbrush was so soft on my skin and literally felt like a mini fan blowing air onto my face which felt so nice and relaxing. I asked Shay for a smokey eye look and I was delighted with how it turned out at the end! The airbase makeup lasted for most of the night which was about 5 hours. This for me would be less than normal in relation to how long my makeup lasts as usually my makeup would last for 8 hours or more before it starts to wear off or get patchy. I loved how Shay used various types of products from different brands instead of most makeup artists who stick to using the one brand when doing my makeup.
Overall I would recommend the airbase makeup as it looks flawless on and feels very light on the skin but I would only wear this makeup for events instead of an all day type makeup. The girls are based in Gorey Institute of Beauty in Wexford and they were kind enough to have their makeup artist come to my house to do my makeup which made things so much easier for me! Gorey Institute of beauty is an ITEC beauty training college which is known for being one of the best in beauty training so if anyone is interested in becoming a beauty specialist there are loads of different courses available there.
