Professional Beauty Show with Powder 'n' Pout

*Warning: Picture Heavy Post* 

A couple of weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of joining the Powder 'n' Pout team at the Professional Beauty Show in the RDS, Dublin... and what an experience it was.
It was a Professional-only show, which made it all the more awesome to be part of it!

It was a super early start, and doing my hair (I had curled it the night before and thankfully I only had to fix it a little) and a full face of makeup at 3.30am was a strange feeling but thankfully the makeup I used lasted me alllll day and I was asked alot on Snapchat what I had used so read on for all the juicy details . . . (click on any of the descriptions for links on where to buy)

1  ~ Pestle and Mortar Hyaluronic Serum (as a Primer)
2  ~ Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation
3  ~ Urban Decary Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer
4  ~ Flormar Concealer Palette
5  ~ Seventeen Brows That! Brows Kit
6  ~ Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette
7  ~ Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
8  ~ SoSu Lashes, Gigi
9  ~ Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
10 ~ Flormar Waterproof Eyeliner 101
11 ~ the Balm In the Balm of Your Hand
12 ~ Flormar Terracota Blush, A touch of Apricot
13 ~ Bare Minerals Mineral Veil powder
14 ~ Flormar Lipliner 229
15 ~ Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstick Stylo, Absolute Nude
16 ~ Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I was SO excited, like *super excited*, to be given a VIP Blogger pass from Aisling at Powder 'n' Pout... passes like these don't come round very often!
To be given a VIP Blogger Pass to such an incredible show made me feel extremely lucky. I had the chance to help out at the Powder 'n' Pout stand too throughout the day, meaning I got see some lovely familiar faces again; Kate from Pure Irish Sugar Blog and Rita from Style Your Way Blog, and I got to meet Orla from The Orlacle! I finally met up with my Instagram buddy Sarah from; so good to finally meet her after all our contact.

Aisling completed three beautiful demos on her model throughout the day and drew in big crowds each time.
Every one visiting the stand were all so impressed with the quality of the brushes; they are made with the highest quality hair available after all, and the packaging was a major thumbs up from all visitors. The packaging is so cute and all individually boxed, which makes the brushes all the more attractive.

A show like this presents great opportunities to meet fellow bloggers and different brands. It was amazing to meet so many lovely people who I was very familiar with (bloggers, Snapchatters, digital influencers etc.) but to have some of those people know who I was too, well it blew my mind to say the least.

Paul Mooney, CEO Flormar 
Charlene Flanagan
Ellen from Waxperts
Annette from Bellamianta
Finally met this lovely one! Sarah from

I was very proud to have my gorgeous blog/contact cards to hand out (major kudos to the printing company who designed them for me in a short space of time!); the response to these was incredible. I mean, look at them.. how pretty are the designs. I couldn't decide which design to go for so I got some of each printed, and when I asked opinions on them there was one clear winner... I am sure you can guess for yourself which one.

Obviously I did some shopping and picked up a few bits and pieces, see below ~ I showed these all of on Snapchat at the time (UN: stardust_belle) . . .

1 ~ Cailyn Dissolv' It Makeup Melt Cleansing Balm (I love this stuff, a repurchase)
2 ~ Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow, Hazelnut
3 ~ Fuschia Eyeshadow Palette, Mother Earth
4 ~ Powder 'n' Pout Angled Blush P120
5 ~ StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Drier (an excellent invention, one for the gift lists!)

So, that sums up my experience at the Professional Beauty Show.
I had thee BEST time with fantastic people and some incredible opportunites!
I want to shout a massive THANK YOU to Aisling and John from Powder 'n' Pout and the Powder 'n' Pout girls for a brilliant day. 'Til next time ;)

Thanks for reading
