When I was four, I received a pretend makeup kit for Christmas and my fate was sealed! I studied fashion design in my hometown of Dublin and spent quite a bit of time doing my friends’ makeup. I was a punk in the late eighties and wore eyeliner looks that would put Nancy Spungen to shame! When M·A·C arrived in Dublin in 1997, I knew it was the perfect job for me. I remained a retail Artist on counter for five years, then I moved into staff training. I have been a Senior Artist now for three years and I’m still in love with the company 15 years later!
Irish girls love liquid liner and false lashes, so Fluidline in Blacktrack and 36 Lash are essential. Lately it feels like Irish women are getting more into lipstick in shades of red, pink and purple. Cyber has been tremedously popular with all skin colours along with Girl About Town.
I’m a firm believer that a good brow shape and contour can work wonders. I'm always carrying Eye Brow pencils in Lingering and Stud. Not to mention good Tweezers/Slant.
First and foremost, a Full Lash Curler for instant lift. Second, a 224 Tapered Blending Brush for Eye Shadows (it’s amazing!). Finally, Mascara Wands/Disposable for brows and lashes.
People are always snatching Wonderstruck Lustreglass and Lust Lipglass. For eyes, Honesty and Satin Taupe are another two shades that I have trouble keeping in my kit.
It has to be mascara – Haute & Naughty Lash. I refuse to even open my front door without my mascara on. My lashes are the only place I don’t mind putting weight on!
