Getting gorgeous options for the gals of the real capital have just increased: pro brand Make Up For Ever have just opened a shop on Winthrop Street, and by the sounds of things (and look of that picture), it's well worth a gander.
In addition to the Make Up For Ever brand, you can also get your hands on Face2, Annie Cribbins' line, as well as self-tanning products from Vani-T. Nails are well provided for with one of my favourite ranges, Leighton Denny.
That's not the half of it though - the store also offers a wide range of pro services, like make-overs, make up lessons, eyebrow shaping and eyelash application in three private makeup areas. In February, they'll launch the Make Up For Ever Academy which will offer courses like four week evening courses (Beginners to Intermediate level €795), a three day full Time Introduction to Make Up Artistry (Introductory Course €595) and a 1 Day Make Up Course (Perfect Day & Night Make Up €199)
Definitely one to check out next time I'm down south, I think!
