Charred Emerald

I don’t know about you girls but Victoria Beckham has always been an idol of mine. From the mid 90’s when she was rocking “girl power” with the Spice Girls through to today when she is now a respected figure in the fashion industry – so when I heard she would be collaborating with Estée Lauder to bring out a new makeup collection I knew I had to have it.
Before it was even launched, I was extremely lucky to receive a few pieces from the collection thanks to The Loop at Dublin airport and I fell in love with them instantly.
The eyeshadow was my favourite – it was the Eye Metals in colour – charred emerald – not a colour I would usually go for, but as I had just picked up an emerald green jumpsuit in my boutique and they were the perfect match.
I applied the emerald eyeshadow all over my lid and blended it out using a peach toned “Benefit” eyeshadow. For my brows I used the Gimme Brow and the Ka-Brow (both also from The Loop) to shape and colour them! I literally could not live without either of those products.
It had been a while since I had shot a style post for the blog and I thought, what better excuse than a new outfit and makeup to get me back into the swing of things.
I was in Italy on a buying trip this week and there was the most beautiful secret garden in our hotel which made for the perfect setting.
The only extra touch that I added to the look was a pair of rose gold sandals from River Island.  I wanted to let the colours speak for themselves so I kept all other accessories to a minimum.
The Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder collection launched in Dublin Airport on the 1st of October and everything in the Loop is at least 15% cheaper than high street so next time you are flying through, be sure to check it out! You won’t be disappointed.
