Hi guys, in time for Valentines Day I'm delighted to be doing a giveaway with the talented Claudine King. This week I went in to her beautiful new salon at 22 South William Street, and was lucky enough to have her work her magic on my brows.
Claudine King began her career eleven years ago at the renowned Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School in Dublin. Also qualified in Microblading Semi-Permanent Make-Up, she knows her stuff when it comes to all things face. Using world renowned brands including Rodial, Cailyn Cosmetics, Dermalogica, U-Spa, Revitabrow, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Essie, OPI Nail Care, Yon-Ka and Dr. Murad, Claudine is a trusted expert in her field. The ability to provide painless threading is just one element that makes her stand out from the crowd, I couldn't believe how little it hurt compared to what I was used to! Many of Claudine’s loyal clients are well known faces in the worlds of modelling, media and entertainment. Her relationships are built on her expertise and the trust which clients have in her ability to perfect each aspect of a look - be it brow, lash, skin or nail treatments.
I was impressed that Claudine took the time to speak to me at length about what exactly I wanted out of the appointment and how I liked my brows to look before she started working on anything. Eyebrows are so important to me and I have too often come out of a salon sorely disappointed trying to scrub black dye off my face in the car on the way home! I was throughly impressed and highly recommend trying her out if your after the perfect brow!

Now for what's on my face! I had lots of questions today on snapchat (jodielawsonwood) about what makeup I'm wearing and it's the same thing I do everyday so I thought I'd share my product list!
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, Armani Lumious Silk Foundation in shade 6.5, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in shade 20 under the eye mixed with YSL Touché Eclait in number 2, Givenchy Teint Couture Embellishing Concealer to spot conceal.
Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow in shade Oak, Anastasia Brow Gel in clear, Mac Paintpot in shade Groundwork, Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in shade Camel through the socket, Mac shadow in Embark tighter through the crease, Mac Shadow in Carbon along the lash line topped with Kat Von D tattoo liner in Trooper. Lashes are 3D volume lash extensions applied by Rebecca in Vintage Glamour, brow bone highlighted with Chelsea brow pencil and inner corner with Becca highlighter in Champagne Pop.
Hourglass Bronzer in Radiant Light, Mac shadow in Cork as a precise contour under the cheek bone and down the nose, Mac blush in Peaches, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal along the cheekbones and on top of the brow bone, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop as a little extra highlighter on cheek bones.
Smashbox Always Sharp Liner in Medium Nude, Charlotte Tilbury Matt Lipstick in Bitch Perfect.
Set my whole face with Mac Fix Plus!
Washed and conditioned with Kerastase Bain Satin and Lait Vital. Ran some Nectar Thermique through the ends and sprayed the roots with Tigi Superstar for a Day for some lift and volume. Blow dryed my hair upside down and the curled it with the Instyler Max. I pin the curls up as I do them and then shake my hair out after I finish my makeup so they cool and set in place.
This is pretty much my routine for any time I'm getting done up, obviously I skip a few steps for work on a daily basis! Let me know if you'd like anymore info on any of the products mentioned!
