This piece is more about how I felt walking into a trade show with 1000’s of beauty bloggers and women in the beauty industry with NO MAKEUP on.

All the most beautiful ladies in one building,not only that but women who have mastered their makeup to perfection.Contouring and sculpting their face in order to enhance their beauty even more.

I was a model for MakeupbyMerry on the Nima Brush stand and although I could have put something on my bare face I chose not to…..

I realised just then that I have actually accepted who Iam and what I look like.

I felt a little uncomfortable when my picture was taken but in person talking to others I actually felt fine!!!

Merry took to the stage and worked on my face using Nimabrush.

perfecting my Brows with Benefit BrowZings.

A sultry smokey Eye using Inglot shadows and the infamous gel liner 77.

Rebeluna Cosmetics Millie lashes to finish the look.

A transformation happened……[Well Merry made it happen]

The Day itself was fantastic with Irish beauty businesses showcasing their products.

I was also their to support some other amazing women that I admire and have became friends with including..

The Matte to Metallic girls Jen&Ciara -Makeup Revolution

Jennifer Rock akaThe Cleanse Off Mitt

Diane Everett also smashing it with the make up demo’s.

If you are starting out in the industry or want some inspiration I would definitely go along in September for the next trade show. I might even go all day makeup free!!!!
