My Morning at BITE

I decided to pay a last minute visit to BITE (Beauty Industry Trade Event) yesterday morning. I was trying to keep myself away so I wouldn’t spend money on make-up and nail polishes that I really don’t need…

I caved.

The Make Up For Ever stand had some special offers on make-up sets. I was delighted that nothing really appealed to me.

The lovely Makeup and Beauty.ie badge

I bought some Crown brushes, which I have never tried before. Haul post will be up this evening.

I was handed a ridiculous amount of literature on brands.

The place was jammers with models getting spray tans – Sunjunkie, Vant-T, Wow Brown.. the list goes on. I left feeling utterly pasty :)

The Bourjois stands was absolutely manic. The had a special offer on – 5 items for €10! This is a great deal but it was eat or be eaten at this counter. I was elbowed and shoved around – it’s amazing what women will do for cheap make-up.

I picked up some goodies but I was good overall. I will post by haul this evening!

BITE is running today too in the RDS Simmonscourt if you are lucky enough to be off today. It’s free to attend but you need to work in the beauty industry is some way.

Were you at BITE?

    Really dying to read about the Crowne brushes – have heard so much about them recently. They seem so reasonable in comparison to the higher end brands so would love to know if they match them quality wise etc!

    Wow I love your bag! Where’d you get it?

      In Carraig Dun (think that’s how to spell it) My aunt bought be a voucher for that shop and I thought I would never find anything in there. Low and behold, I found my bag :) Think it was reduced to €75

    I went early to avoid the crowds. Stuck to buying things on my list, can’t believe I was so good (except for an unplanned handbag!). Seemed like every second stand was tanning though (yawn).

      Agreed, tanning was way out of hand. you’re so good to make a list!
