Liz here - I was working on Wednesday last doing a makeup makeover with one of my lovely clients in BTs in Dublin.  I invited the girls to come along afterwards and booked them in for some advice on skincare and simple makeup techniques.  I have a particular brand  I am very fond of and want to introduce the girls to all the different products over time.

Sophie here - I was delighted to get the chance to visit the makeup counter again with Mum.  I got some great advice on skincare and tried out some new products.  I have not tried tinted moisturiser before, preferring to stick to mineral powder, but the makeup artist showed me all kinds of techniques and then did an amazing job on making up my eyes for a special occasion, using a fab green colour which is so this season.

Rachel here - I had no idea I was going to have my makeup done, but when I saw Sophie's finished demo, I thought I'd like a bit of advice too.  I keep my makeup quite simple and the makeup artist really understood what I was looking for.  She showed me how to blend two tinted moisturisers together to create the perfect colour for my skin tone and introduced me to an eye base which goes on under eye shadow and creates a lovely smooth effect.  The mascara she used was just gorgeous.  

 The girls got some really good advice and we bought a few products.  I tell my clients that it is a good idea to make an appointment at your favourite makeup counter twice a year, to get advice on the condition of your skin and also to see what new products are available that season.
