It has been months since I've updated on here, but I've not lost my grá for makeup (as you'll glimpse on my snapchat); life has just been busy! In general, I've had less time to blog and less time to try new bits. But this also means I have some firm firm favourites over the past few months. You guys know that base products are my major love and here's a look-see at my current go-tos.

A quick before and after on the iPhone of my @yumilashesuk treatment in @purejoybeauty today! What do you reckon? 👀 #yumilashes #irishbbloggersA photo posted by makeupovermind (@makeupovermind) on
I have been thinking about getting eyelash extensions for quite some time now. It seems everyone and their mother has them these days and the idea of looking more awake and polished even sans makeup is something that appeals to me, particularly since I've embarked on my early morning gym sessions!

You may have noticed from my snapchat (plug -> @orlarich) my increasing penchant for splurging on expensive lotions and potions (I'm lookin' at you Sunday Riley). It could be an age thing, but more and more I find myself remaining pretty loyal to some key makeup bits; while in the meantime, my skincare collection is expanding at an alarming rate.

As someone with a special interest in trying new products, I don't always end up repurchasing the products I thought I would. By the time they get finished up there is often something else shiny and new that I'm ready to sink my teeth into, and so the cycle goes. Therefore, when there's something I purchase again and again, or further still, have back-ups for, I mean business. Here are some of the items I've gone back to again and again.

It has been.... a while since I posted, though you may have been keeping up on Snapchat (@orlarich) and the like. If you haven't been, the short version is I had an infection on my face for the guts of 2+ months which allowed very little makeup play-time, and that coupled with general life has slowed me down a bit. But what better way to catch up than a round-up of what I have been loving this year so far.

Another day, another wish list. Those if you following me on Snapchat (@orlarich) will know I've been a bit under the weather and currently have two infections on my face (charming, I know). This will unfortunately set back some of the other posts I was hoping to do, but hasn't stopped me drooling over the next set of products I've convinced myself I need! And here they are!

When I first saw news of the new Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Stick Trio I was super excited to get my hands on it. So much so that it actually kicked off a massive Sephora haul when it wasn't yet available in Ireland. Though in the end it wasn't even included in that order and I picked it up in Boots when it hit stores (oops...).

One of my most frequently asked questions is what beauty bits to pick up in the USA! With all the additional brands on offer it can be a little overwhelming, and so I've finally sat down to share some of my personal picks! This list could be never-ending, so I haven't even gone in to skin or haircare and I've tried to keep it as brief as possible!
