Working in TV on Xposé has made me have to make so many changes to my whole beauty routine and lifestyle. I used to love a really natural look but my 'natural' look which consisted of a slick of mascara and some concealer left me looking really washed out and beyond wrecked which didn't quite cut it.

Tara O'Farrell is a model I have worked with and she is also an incredible make up artist. She famously did Kim Cattrall's make up when she was in Ireland and is regularly touted as one of the go-to make up artists for brides.

We were filming a fashion story for Xpose last week and Tara agreed to do my make up before hand and we thought it would be nice to film a little tutorial. I picked up so many techniques and literally want to buy everything she used.

Once the segment aired on Xposé I got lots of tweets from people saying my make up looked especially nice so now you can recreate the look at home!
