Happy St Patrick’s Day!

You can count on us to come up with a relevant beauty link to the year’s biggest holidays! Today is St Patrick’s Day, and to celebrate our Irish cousins (including my lovely mum) in the best way we know how, we’ve taken a look at two Irish beauty greats so that you can celebrate in true Gallic style.

First up is a tanning innovation from Irish mother and daughter team Hilary and Shelley McMurray, founders of cult tanning brand He-Shi. Star product of the range is the award winning He-Shi Express Liquid Tan, a bronzer that instantly tans upon contact with the skin and gradually darkens to achieve a perfectly natural result. It’s non-stick, non-streaking, quick-drying, and is a perfect way to give milky skin a gorgeous golden hue that’s perfect for partying.

There’s no Irish style without Orla Kiely. Her eponymous retro-inspired debut scent is sensual, quirky and so distinctive; utter femininity with a touch of playfulness. Spritz this uber-wearable scent on at any time of day to get an instant hit of the refreshing Green Tea, Peach, Bergamot top notes, the unusual  Rose, Chocolate and Osmanthus heart, and the long-lasting Musk, Tonka Bean, Cedarwood, Sandalwood dry down.

P.S. We can’t mention St Patricks Day without talking just a little bit about the luck of the Irish. Make sure that you get yours with the Too Faced Metal Eyed Eyeliner in Get Lucky, a vivid emerald green hue shot through with green and silver shimmer.

Happy St Patricks Day everyone! x
